Funnyman Steve Martin refuses to discuss his private life with the media, because his relationship is too sacred to be dissected in the press.

The ROXANNE star, who is currently dating New Yorker magazine journalist Anne Stringfield, has had his share of high-profile romances with a string of stars including ex-wife Victoria Tennant, Cindy Sherman and Anne Heche.

He says, "I have a long-term relationship with a woman and I keep it private because I don't like prying, and it's better to keep those things to myself."
