Ryan Reynolds talks about his relationship ... er .... talks about why he doesn't talk about his relationship with Scarlett Johansson in the new issue of GQ.
"I'm a little more guarded, I think. I'm just a little bit more wary of having my relationship turning into a soap opera."
Makes sense. It's true that celebrities are paid not only for their acting, but for promotional appearances to support their current movie, show, or album as well. It's also true that the general public craves little slices of celeb life ("Oh no! Shiloh dresses like a boy!"). A little bit of inside info goes a long way in juicing up the Hollywood publicity machine.
But only a little. There's just no need to dish it all.
Here are a few celebrity couples that should just shut their yaps. File these under TMI:
Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson: Wentz went on Howard Stern and revealed Simpson's bra size and the state of her figure pre- and post-pregnancy, and dished on their life between the sheets.
"We have an amazing sex life," he said. "Texas girls are fun."
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes: First there was the Oprah couch jumping. Then came the gushing marriage proposal in Paris. And then Suri was born. It just goes on and on ....
Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey: Note to celebrity couples. Don't have a TV show about your relationship. Because that worked out well for these two, didn't it?
Will and Jada Pinkett Smith: Yeah, we know you have sex. A lot of it. More in one week than the average person could ever hope to have in a month. We get it. Now please keep it to yourself. Thank you.
Russell Brand and Katy Perry: Katy said that she tamed famed ladies' man Russell by refusing to have sex with him on the first date. Nope. Didn't need to know this.
Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson: Every fight, every make-up session, every conversation was recorded for all to see and hear.
Jessica Simpson and John Mayer: John, we didn't need to know that you considered Jessica sexual napalm. Didn't need to know that at all.
David and Victoria Beckham: It's not what they say, it's where they are. Everywhere. They're famous for being famous. He plays soccer and she doesn't smile. Ever. That's all we need to know. Now please go back to the UK.
