Since they started dating in 2015, Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk have been super-private about their relationship. Even when they welcomed their daughter Lea in 2017, they stayed remarkably quiet. Irina just opened up about why that is.
“I have a lot of friends who share a lot of their personal life on Instagram or social media, very publicly,” she told Glamour U.K.in an interview for their March digital cover. “I admire it and I think it’s great - but I think it’s all about personal choice.”
“Because my work requires me to be out there, I just decided my personal life will be quiet. That’s why it’s called personal, because it’s something for you and your family and I feel happy with it.”
Okay, got it! That makes total sense. Bradley, for his part, has also been intentionally quiet about the two of them.
One time, when Howard Stern was grilling him about why he didn't bring Irina on red carpets, he jokingly replied, "You're right, it's so great to take someone you're with to a place where a hundred people are going to photograph you every step you make and ask you tons of questions, and then rip it apart the next day. No, no, no, no, no."
They did JUST attend the Golden Globes together, though, which means a couples appearance at the Oscars is a *very* real possibility. Cross your fingers.
