More like the sound of silence.
British actor Riz Ahmed has apparently married, though he’s remaining mum on the identity of his new Mrs.
The 38-year-old outed himself as taken on the Jan. 11 episode of Louis Theroux’s “Grounded” podcast, when he disclosed that he’s remained in California after wrapping a film there last year because his “wife’s family” is from the Bay Area, per Us Weekly.
Theroux, quite understandably, told Ahmed he “didn’t realize” the Emmy winner wasn’t single and asked how long he’s been married.
“Not very long, actually,” Ahmed responded. “It’s the first time I’ve ever mentioned it in an interview. So, congratulations on this incredibly exciting scoop.”
“I mean, I guess I don’t really feel it’s generally that relevant, so I don’t delve into my personal life or my dating history or even family life much,” he added.
Ahmed doesn’t think he’s being unduly witholding from the public, however: “If I was quite a private person, I wouldn’t be doing a podcast with you being like, ‘Hey, check out these films. I’m on Twitter.’ I guess it’s just about having boundaries.”
Users on the celebrity-gossip forum Lipstick Alley have bandied about stylist Akua Murray-Adoboe’s name as being linked to Ahmed, while Us Weekly noted he was last seen with writer and filmmaker Anya Raza, his date to the 2018 Golden Globes.
