In 2013, Butcher opened up to Vanity Fair about her relationship, saying:

“I’m in a relationship with a celebrity, so I felt like there’s already enough of me out there,” she told the magazine of why she chose to stay off social media. “I felt like I was giving out too much information. I was giving people too much access. I like to keep as much private as possible now.”

The Australian model has previously appeared in such films as Something’s Gotta Give and Big Momma’s House 2.
