Fairuza Balk Is Secretive Regarding Her Love Life
Fairuza Balk is one of those actresses we see in many movies but can’t quite recall the name of. While she has appeared in a lot of movies, the films that many recognize her from are The Island of Dr. Moreau (1996), as Stacey in American History X (1999), and as Vicki Vallencourt alongside Adam Sandler in The Waterboy (1998), including many other notable films such as Almost Famous (2000), Deuces Wild (2002) and Bad Lieutenant (2008).
Despite having played significant roles in significant films, Balk isn’t a household name as some of her co-stars. Talking about her co-stars, some of them aren't just her co-stars; they're more than that. Let us find out about the actress's 'more than co-stars' relationships and how she has particularly kept the relationships off the radar.
Fairuza Balk Has Never Married. However, She Has Been Romantically Linked With Some Men In The Past
Fairuza Balk isn't married to anyone, nor does she have a husband, for that matter. That being said, she has been linked to her co-stars in the past, something that no actor in the industry is immune to. However, her past dating rumors turned out to have had quite the strength in them.
The Balk And Glover Affair
Fairuza Balk and Crispin Glover worked together in 2005’s What Is It? The film was a directorial venture for Glover, who flexed his directing muscles with the black comedy film. In the film, Fairuza Balk lent her voice to the characters Screaming Snail, Insect, and monkey Girl.
Balk’s voice acting in Glover’s directorial venture by no means suggested that the two were dating. But the rumors started gaining traction after the two were spotted together at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival for an altogether different film called the Small Dogs.

Even Famous Fix, a site that posts celebrities’ dating history, claimed that Balk was one of the actresses the actor has gone out with.
2006 was indeed a long time ago, 14 years to be precise, but that surely hasn’t put any water to their dating rumors. In 2011, five years after their initial apparent affair, Balk took to her Facebook to give Glover a special shoutout that could not be ignored.
In her 2011 Facebook post, she wrote, "Crispin Glover is a true gentleman 100%. Lovely perfect early Sunday dinner. Magnificent :)"
Her cheeky post certainly alluded that perhaps her affair with Glover hadn’t quite died down. In addition to the actresses’ post, the comment section also hinted that the two were together at that point in time.
One user named Nikki Kranz said that when she met with Glover, she asked him if he could say hello to Balk from her side, and the actor replied that he would.
I so love him. When I met him I asked if he could say hello to you for me, he was sweet enough to say he would. I adore you both.
Then another person named Jamie Jones wrote, “He's one of the most beautiful men in the world. You are so lucky!”
While all the evidence up to that point certainly seemed to point to the fact that Balk and Glover were dating, there hasn’t been any recent news since. No posts or anything of that sort to allude to the fact that the couple is still together.
Fairuza Balk Was Also Linked To Harry Potter Actor David Thewlis
Fairuza Balk was also liked to another actor during the hay days of her acting career. Balk, and David Thewlis first worked together in the 1996 movie, The Island of Dr. Moreau.
Their starring alongside each other is by no means a sign that they were dating. The rumor began when the two actors were seen sharing a close moment in the 1997 Academy Award. That wasn’t the only event that the pair were spotted in. Balk, and Thewlis were also seen later that year (1997) in the premiere of The Saint.
Website Whosdatedwho claims that Balk and Thewlis were indeed a thing back then and dated for a total of one year from 1996 to 1997.
Most people might know Thewlis as the kindred teacher, Professor Lupin, who turned into a werewolf in the famous Harry Potter series.

Balk's Tweet Shows She's No Longer with Glover. Puts More Questions in Their Past Relationship
On 18 November 2013, the actress tweeted that her then-boyfriend was hit by a drunk driver three years ago and how she had to help him recover, adding that he couldn’t walk without having some pain.
Interestingly, when she mentioned her boyfriend from three years ago, that incident would be some time around 2010—a period where everyone assumes that she was with Glover.
Also, there hasn’t been any news of that sort relating to Glover anywhere, so her tweet again put everyone in confusion as to who she was referring to. It is also not plausible that Glover being the victim of a hit-and-run case, would be swept off the rug considering he is a celebrity and all.
Following that tweet, Balk has remained rather scarce when it comes to her relationship information. She also chooses to remain relatively mum in her interviews or any of her handles.
So it is safe to assume that Balk is still single and focused more on her career. Currently, she seems to be expanding on her already encompassing profile by starring as one of the main characters, Lizzie Thomas, in the 2020 TV series Paradise City.
