Is Miranda Richardson Married?

Like many of us, the Daily Mail journalist Jenny Johnston wanted insight into Miranda’s intimate life when she interviewed the latter in March 2009.

The Enchanted April star tiptoed around Jenny’s question about her current relationship status by claiming that “she never wants 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, 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.

To answer the above-mentioned question: No, Miranda isn’t married. Forget being with a husband; she has yet to acknowledge a brewing romance publically.

Absence Of Husband Fuels Lesbian Rumors

Nothing has changed since the Daily Mail interview. It’s 2018 and Miranda is busier than ever; churning one project after another.

As Miranda pushes 60, she has opted to find humor in spinsterhood. Speaking to Radio Times in December 2014, the Damage actress claimed that marriage is an illness.

Interestingly enough, she was once quoted - albeit in a tongue in cheek manner - as saying that just because she lived with a woman doesn’t make her a lesbian.

By that logic, she shouldn’t be labeled lesbian just because she has yet to find a man worthy of being her husband.Her quote from almost three decades ago is more relevant now if you think about it.
