* [[TopGear The Stig]] is made out to be this "in-universe", for lack of a better word. Averted rather spectacularly when the previous Stig outed himself by way of a tell-all book about his time on the show. The identity of the current Stig remains unknown, but there are rumours that the role has passed on to Sabine Schmidt, a professional racing driver and co-presenter of the German answer to ''TopGear'' who guest-starred in a couple of the team's adventures on the Continent. Make what you will of the tabloid articles alleging that Jeremy Clarkson was cheating on his wife that started popping up not long afterwards... * In an episode of ''{{Frasier}}'', Frasier and Niles meet a character named T.H. Houghton (obviously comparable to J.D. Salinger), who wrote one book and then vanished off the map. They're horrified to realize that their hero loves talking about baseball with their blue-collar dad.

* Music/FionaApple has made it quite known that she dislikes fame and all the trappings that it brings and stays away from the public eye. After her last album in 2012, she does remain musically productive and shows up on the occasional collaboration or performance and wrote the opening theme song of ''Series/TheAffair''.

* A long stretch of time passed by between the release of normally low-profile SteelyDan co-founder Donald Fagen's 1982 solo debut ''The Nightfly'', and its 1993 followup, ''Kamikiriad'', upon which Fagen largely laid low aside from the occasional song written for a movie soundtrack ("True Companion" from ''Film/HeavyMetal''; "Century's End" from ''Film/BrightLightsBigCity''), very sporadic songwriting for other music acts (Diana Ross, Manhattan Transfer, Yellowjackets and Jennifer Warnes, most notably) and the occasional live concert performance (usually charity shows in New York City). He began performing again with the "New York Rock'n'Soul Revue", a blues and jazz-based tour that occasionally saw him revisit some SteelyDan classics, in the late [[TheEighties 1980's]], and penned essays for ''Premiere'' magazine. After reuniting with Steely cofounder Walter Becker for ''Kamikiriad'', the duo assembled a new band, went on the road as SteelyDan (their first tour since 1974) and have both (seperately and together) kept a higher profile and constant touring ever since.

He's also known to shun all interviews and public appearances, save for limited industry appearances, and makes all the artists he works with fly to Sweden if they want to work with him.

* Music/DavidBowie was once so accessible that he regularly communicated with his fanbase via his official website at the TurnOfTheMillennium. But then he slowly became this. His last new album was in 2003, his last tour -- one cut short by a heart attack that required multiple bypass surgeries -- was in '04, and his last live performance was in '06. A few film/[=TV=] roles and guest appearances on other artists' albums later, and that was all. He only seemed to surface for the odd premiere or charity fundraiser, and didn't grant interviews. In TheNewTens, it was generally accepted by fans and the music press that he quietly retired to raise his family, preserve his health, indulge in his hobbies (he paints, sculpts, and is an avowed BookWorm), and enjoy the fruits of his labors...which made January 8, 2013 something of a WhamEpisode for '''everybody''' when the website was relaunched, a new album announced, and a video for its first single released. ''The Next Day'' was a huge hit, but he's still not granting interviews -- longtime producer and friend Tony Visconti has said Bowie has ruled out the possibility completely -- and will not be going on tour to support any new releases. Any chances of this changing ended with his death three years later.

* Former TeenIdol Creator/LeifGarrett is a bit of a paradox --in RealLife he's very approachable, yet in the public eye he's been known to be very reclusive and protective of his private life. He got a little better with this once he started appearing on ''Series/TheSmokingGunPresentsWorldsDumbest'' in 2008, and now he's in talks to have a RealityShow of his own.

* Subverted with Creator/JamesRolfe, also known as the WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd. While he appears on camera in his videos, has made many con appearances, has been interviewed many times over the years, and even shared a good chunk of his childhood stories in his CineMassacre videos, his family life is kept very tightly wrapped. He very rarely talks about his wife and especially his daughter after her birth in 2013, and has never revealed either of their names to the public. And while his wife has assisted on many of his AVGN videos, she herself has never appeared in person. * For years the WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter only represented himself via a static cartoon avatar.
