Who is Liza Lapira dating? The actress was reportedly involved with Sam Rockwell.

Liza Lapira has a long history in Hollywood, and in addition to her work on television is well known for her roles in films such as 21, Cloverfield, and Fast & Furious. She had recurring roles in crime dramas NCIS, Nancy Drew, and sci-fi epic Dollhouse as well. With such a full resume, it might be a surprise to know that Liza's dating history is relatively sparse — mostly because her private life is kept private.

That said, Liza was reportedly in a relationship with actor Sam Rockwell at one point in her career. Although their time together is not well documented, it's clear the couple has since split. Sam has since been in a serious relationship with fellow Iron Man 2 actor Leslie Bibb since 2007. Liza, on the other hand, has not mentioned any new partners since but has happily shared tons of photos of her adorable pup!

Many celebrities prefer not to discuss or document their dating life on social media, and with the rest of their lives so heavily immersed in the spotlight, who could deny them the right to their privacy? Besides, it seems like Liza has her hands full without a significant other shooting for The Equalizer, which is currently in its first season.
