Notoriously Private Couple-Sam Worthington And Lara Worthington (Née Bingle)

Living life in the public eye is one of the hardest things for celebrities.

Some find it very difficult to live privately, whether the paparazzi are lurking around every corner or their name shows up in every tabloid.

There are, however, quite a few celebs who seem to have that whole privacy thing on lock, and the Worthington couple is evident among them.

According to the sources, the couple began dating in September 2013 and have managed to keep their relationship under wraps ever since.

Not only did they have a quiet wedding, but they also managed to keep their pregnancies under wraps.

The Avatar alum and his model wife never confirmed their wedding, which allegedly happened in the Maldives around New Year's Eve of 2013.

Sam and Lara Worthington's marriage was confirmed when the pair were wearing wedding bands, and Lara quietly added Worthington to her Instagram name.

Why Rocket Zot's Parents Sam And Lara Worthington, Are Very Private?

People often tend to treat public figures like public property. In today's context, social media judgments, paparazzi, and media trials have made celebrities' life a lot harder.

This may result in why so many celebrities nowadays live a very private and low-key life.

Among them are Sam And Lara Worthington. They have also landed in a few legal trouble with the media, which is also one factor in their notoriously private family life.

In February 2014, Clash of the Titans star Sam was arrested in NYC after punching a paparazzo, Sheng Li, who was following his wife to get a 'perfect picture.'

Both parties were arrested-Worthington for assault in the third degree, attempted assault, and harassment, and Li for reckless endangerment, assault, and harassment charges.

Later, on 1 April 2014, Li, who wanted Lara to be arrested for starting the fight, filed a $3.7 million civil lawsuit against Worthington.

The case was settled out of court before going to trial in September 2015.

On the other hand, Bingle (now Worthington) also had a few cases with media houses.

The model 2006 filed a case against EMAP Australia, which had allegedly published her photographs without permission in the 27 March 2006 issue of Australian men's magazine Zoo Weekly.

Similarly, she accused Brendan Fevola of breach of privacy, defamation, and misuse of her image for releasing a nu*e photo on Woman's Day published on 1 March 2010.

However, the case raised considerable controversy because Worthington was later found to sell her pictures to the magazine for nearly A$200,000.

The duo is also not much active on social media. When asked about the reason, the reality star Lara stated:

"I realized people were making money from it. Everything I'd post, they'd make a story out of it".
