5 Famous Couples Who Prove Relationships Should Stay Private

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes

Sometimes the details of a split are better left unknown.

When celebrities complain about their love lives, it usually warrants a major eye-roll. But when it comes to relationships, we often forget just how lucky we are to have actual privacy.

While our favorite Hollywood starlets do get to hook up with any hotties they want, they also have to live out the entire experience in the tabloids. Just imagine your crazy college trysts being broadcast for the world to see. Yikes!

In fact, Taken 2 star Famke Janssen gave YourTango the inside scoop on how she keeps her life private. "I live in NY! I go out and walk my dogs and wear no makeup and huge boots!" she laughed at the National Board of Review Awards Gala. Smart girl!

Here are five couples who remind us why relationships are better kept mum:

1. Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez
As much as I want to know what went down between these two (cheating? drugs?), they've done a fairly decent job of keeping the details to themselves. Still, the couple formerly known as "Jelena" remains the paparazzi's favorite prey.

2. Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes
TomKat may have had a rumored "contract" for their marriage, but Holmes played it classy by quietly filing for divorce. Could you imagine the media craze if we actually got to see the details of their settlement?!

3. Heidi Klum & Seal
During their divorce, Seal let it slip that Klum was sleeping with "the help." It turned out she was in fact dating her bodyguard Martin Kirsten, but it really shouldn't have come from her ex-hubby's mouth.

4. Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson
Sure, it was super juicy gossip to find out K-Stew cheated on her boyfriend with a married man, but it also made it that much more embarrassing for boyfriend Robert Pattinson. Luckily, these two Twilight stars are pros at not talking about their relationship.

5. Taylor Swift & Everyone
Taylor Swift's dated so many guys over the past three years, it's hard to keep track! The poor girl has to be reminded every day that she's quite unlucky in love. But hey, at least it makes for great music.
