Davis may have gained popularity as a talented actress, but, as is often the case in show biz, it wasn’t long until her personal life began to overshadow her professional endeavors.
With a string of high-profile relationships, including rumored romances with Steve Martin, Liev Schreiber, Russell James, and Alec Baldwin, she was last romantically linked with screenwriter Aaron Sorkin in 2012. “They’re very different people,” a source told In Touch magazine at the time of their split. “She’s focused on raising her daughter, Gemma, and he’s working on his show. They’ll definitely remain friends.”
Despite the unwanted tabloid attention, it sounds like Davis couldn’t be happier with the single life. “Little girls who say, ‘I want to get married’ — I was never one of those little girls,” she told CBS News in 2008. “It is not that I wouldn’t, but I don’t see that I must do it or be unhappy. I don’t know if I’ll ever get married. I’m perfectly happy [with] my single self.”
That said, the actress does still believe in finding The One. “Absolutely,” Davis told The Guardian in 2002. “But it’s hard to find, just like it is for everyone else.”
