James Spader is an Ultra-Secretive Father

Along with Spader’s prolific acting career, The Blacklist star is also quite successful in keeping his personal details to himself. Back in 2014, Spader said in an interview with Playboy,

I’ve been very successful keeping a private face on things, even out in public. If you’re recognizable and you want to draw people to you in public, you can do that. I don’t. If people put their lives in the public eye a lot, people feel as if they’ve gotten to know them through the media. I try not to open the door to my private life in a public way.”

On the other hand, James’ appearance with his family is also quite occasional. One of the rarest appearances James made with his family was in New York in August 2015. At the time, the actor was spotted with his youngest son Nathaneal and his partner.
