Miranda Richardson, who rose to prominence playing murderer Ruth Ellis in 1985's Dance with a Stranger, prefers to stay away from relationships and marriage. Maybe that's why the British actress hasn't been linked to relishing relationships with any men to date.

Speaking to Jenny Johnston of Daily Mail in March 2009, Richardson reflected that she wasn't just ready to get married to someone when the journalist wanted insight into Miranda’s intimate life.

The Enchanted April star tiptoed around Johnston’s question about her current relationship status by claiming that she never wanted to feel up for grabs.

"In my industry, everybody wants to know everything about you, and it's just dumb," the actress said. 

Richardson added, "I think the only way of maintaining some of that mystique is by not giving away too much about yourself. It has served me well so far. I never want to feel up for grabs."

She reasoned that the need to maintain mysticism had led to leading a furtive romantic life.

When quizzed if she had any regret not settling down or not being married to that date, in a doleful tone, she responded:

My pets - two dogs, two cats and an axolotl (Mexican salamander) - are like family. I think marriage would be quite good for me, but I'm not going to just go out and hire someone. I think, intermittently, that you find Mr. Right, but you have to get lucky. I don't rule out having a family - it just hasn't happened for me yet.

Further, in the interview, she acknowledged that her frantic work schedule might have contributed to her spinsterhood.

Likewise, in 2013, the Damage actress claimed that marriage is an illness while speaking to Radio Times.

Even today, nothing has changed since the Daily Mail interview. Richardson neither has tied the knots nor seen dating a man.

Therefore, it won't be wrong to say that Miranda isn’t married. Forget being with a husband; she has yet to acknowledge a brewing romance publically.

Richardson Was Interested in Acting From an Early Age

Born on March 3, 1958, in Southport, Lancashire, England, Richardson was raised alongside her sister, who was eight years senior.

Her father, William Alan Richardson, was a marketing executive, while her mother, Marian Georgina (Townsend), was a stay-home mom.

As a teenager, the Damage actress aspired to become a veterinarian but shifted her focus to acting.

She earned her degree in Drama from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. The ensuing years saw her made a name for herself in the British theatre scene.
