This seems to be changing now, though, with the media hounding of Shane Warne and Liz Hurley. Reporters and photographers have been following them around for days, even waiting outside his house and filing regular reports.
You can't really feel sorry for the pair, though. They certainly court media attention.
Still, considering what happened to Princess Diana, there's something a little bit ominous about these tweets from Warnie:
"Apologies to anyone driving on the rd & witnessing the ridiculous behavior by irresponsible photographers trying to get a pic !!!!!"
"Ps I'm not complaining by the way, but I fear that someone could seriously get hurt on the rd as the photographers are so irresponsible."
