* Madeleine Peters, the voice of Scootaloo in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' and Helen Lorraine in ''WesternAnimation/MarthaSpeaks''. Little is known about her current life (other than living in Baltimore and trying to pursue a career in animation), she's not as active online as her fellow voice actresses Creator/ClaireCorlett and Creator/MichelleCreber (her last Twitter post as of this writing was in ''December 2015''), and rarely attends conventions.

* ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' creators The Brothers Chaps, were quite open with their fanbase, making public appearances and even featuring their children in some shorts, but as of 2009 they almost never appear, which has been attributed to the birth of a new son. In 2014, they broke the silence and confirmed the return of Homestar Runner, even saying they hadn't planned on the hiatus being so long.

Even then, they're only open about themselves and the content and keep nearly everything else private.

* It is common for some pro wrestlers to become this once they retire, especially if they never made it big. Wrestling/{{Aksana}} and Wrestling/{{Layla}} have both mostly stopped using social media upon retiring and staying out of the public eye. But one of the most prominent examples of this is Wrestling/MuhammadHassan. Despite lasting only seven months on WWE's main roster, he is one of the most talked about wrestlers in the fandom even today. Ever since retiring in 2005 amid the massive controversy surrounding him, he has mostly kept to himself. He did, however, attend a wrestling convention in 2010 and he worked with Shad Gaspard (formerly of Cryme Tyme) on a graphic novel.
* Wrestling/SashaBanks also doesn't like for fans to approach her in public outside of WWE meet and greets.

** Garbo said the media had confused her personal inclinations with the character she played in ''Film/GrandHotel''. In an interview around that time, she'd said "I want to be ''left'' alone", not quite the same thing. It was her character in the play who said "I want to be alone."



* Creator/DarylHannah, who is best known for her roles in films like ''Film/BladeRunner'', ''Film/{{Splash}}'', ''Film/{{Roxanne}}'', ''Film/WallStreet'', and ''Film/KillBill'', suffered from such paralyzing shyness and social anxiety (due in a large share to her suffering from UsefulNotes/AspergersSyndrome) that it made it challenging for her to venture out on talk shows, premieres, or award shows like the Oscars as a means of promoting her work. In a 2010 interview, Hannah proclaimed that her difficulties with social interactions ultimately had a seriously detrimental effect on her career.

In a 2010 interview, Hannah proclaimed that her difficulties with social interactions ultimately had a seriously detrimental effect on her career. Her relationship with Music/NeilYoung began soon after that. They engage in environmental activism together and make films like the recent ''Paradox'', which she directed. Young is a private but not shy or reclusive artist, so perhaps his example has helped to ease her anxiety.

* Out of the four major characters in the 1974 cult classic ''Film/DarkStar'': Brian Narelle (Doolittle) went on to do work in animation, Dan O'Bannon (Pinback) went on to do special effects for StarWars and write the screenplay for Film/{{Alien}} as well as several other projects before he died in 2009, Cal Kuniholm (Boiler) never really went on to do anything before he died in 2008, but nobody seems know anything about Dre Pahich (Talby). It is known that Pahich had a thick accent that required his lines to be dubbed, but nobody seems to know just where he was from or what happened to him after the movie was released. Even co-star Brian Narelle has no idea what's become of Pahich. In an interview, he later explained that they never actually met during production despite their characters interacting in several scenes (Narelle's lines were filmed separately, with a body double being used in shots where they both appeared).

* John Swartzwelder, who has written many episodes of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' as well as a few novels. Some fans even suspect that there is no real Swartzwelder, with the name covering a collaboration between two or more of the rest of the show's staff, and he notoriously refuses to give interviews or appear in Simpsons audio commentaries.. He was apparently entrapped into a DVD commentary for the episode "The Cartridge Family", but it's still unknown if this was the real Swartzwelder and he ended his appearance by denying this.

* For many years, the Wachowskis, creators of ''Film/TheMatrix'', were incredibly secretive, granting few interviews or public appearances after 2000. At least part of it may have to do with their personal life - they were originally known as "the Wachowski brothers", but later came out as {{transgender}} women. They finally broke their silence in 2012, and Lana officially came out after years of rumors, in an interview right [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MrotEnTUt0 here]], made to promote ''Film/CloudAtlas''. She stated that she was specifically doing it to dispell rumors that she was ashamed of being transgender, having decided that if sacrificing her long-held privacy could help others suffering from the same issues she did before her transition, it would be worth it. Her sister Lilly came out in 2016.
* Michael Cimino, the late director of ''Film/{{The Deer Hunter}}'' and ''Film/HeavensGate''. After the hostility from the public regarding the latter film, he ceased granting interviews with American journalists for a decade. He was also rarely photographed (giving rise to a rumored sex change operation when more recent photos did appear) and very little about his private life was known. He last directed a film in 1996 and moved to France to write novels. When he died in 2016, his friends didn't even know he was sick.

* Fran Walsh, the wife and writing partner of Creator/PeterJackson. She appeared on the DVD commentaries for ''{{The Lord Of The Rings}}'' and at the 2003 Oscars, but they've agreed between them that she should stay out of public life as much as possible, to avoid incidents like being mobbed by fans while taking their kids to school.

* Johnny Carson, after he retired from ''Series/TheTonightShow''. He indicated that he would come back with another project, but only made less than a half dozen TV appearances (and the last one was 11 years before his death) and only granted two major interviews. Even before his retirement, he would often fax joke answers in lieu of giving a real interview and, according to his friends, was incredibly shy and introverted in his private life.

* Al Yeganeh who is best known as the real life inspiration for the Series/{{Seinfeld}} Soup Nazi. But not until the late 2000s, which is odd given that the show itself was already ancient history by then (''The Soup Nazi'' episode was from 1996. ''Seinfeld'' ran until 1998). For years, after the infamous episode, Yeganeh operated his busy New York Soup Kitchen International with a business-as-usual attitude. He even invited interviews as long as you didn't mention Seinfeld or "The N Word" (in this case N for 'Nazi' -- Yeganeh is Jewish). Yeganeh did start to shun the public spotlight when he re-formatted his Soup Kitchen into the ''Soup Man International'' franchise. He was a no-show at the grand re-opening. Since going corporate, Yeganeh has had little public presence (although his likeness still serves as the company logo), probably at the insistence of shareholders who prefer more PR-friendly personalities as active spokespersons, such as Reggie Jackson and Shaquille O'Neal, both of whom are also investors in the company. Reportedly, Yeganeh sold his share of the company but lives somewhere near the New York Location.
