Actress JESSICA CHASTAIN refuses to gush about her boyfriend in interviews after watching a number of public romances in Hollywood hit the rocks.
The Zero Dark Thirty star is rarely seen in public with her fashion executive beau Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo, and politely declines to talk about him with the press.
Now the flame-haired beauty has revealed she will only open up about her love life when she gets engaged - because so many stars curse their relationships by being too honest.
She tells E! Online, "Sometimes when someone (in the press) asks me about my dating status, I get really quiet about that because I want to protect it. When I'm engaged someday - who knows to who - I'll probably be more open about it.
"Seeing all these interviews with actors talking about loves of their lives and then they break up in a year and you're thinking, 'What if something happens and they end up being a total jerk?' Then you forever have these pictures of you standing on the red carpets together."
