"One of the downsides of our fame is that privacy isn't really in our control anymore, and a moment that you think is between two people that love each other very much is now a moment that is shared with the entire world," Tom has shared.

"We sort of felt robbed of our privacy. I don't think it's about not being ready. It's just that we didn't want to," he added.
