We gush over Hollywood romances and how we are able to relate with them. This is also why fans get devastated when Hollywood couples break up. No matter how ideal or popular a relationship may seem, even the super wealthy and famous are not immune to partnership issues. Here are some of the most heartbreaking splits to date.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
When you put together the most handsome man and the most beautiful woman in Hollywood, the logical effect would be one of the most popular couples ever. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were already superstars in their own right before they became Brangelina. Everyone even fell in love with them more as adopted, bore and raised kids together. It looked like everything was perfect between until Angelina filed for divorce in 2016.
“I think it’s a reality of marriage that you go through hard times and that you have to embrace those hard times and challenges and know that it’s a part of your marriage and it’s the pulling through together that actually makes the bond.” – Angelina Jolie
Everyone mourned when the two announced their split last year, but fans need not fret as a reconciliation between the two is on the table and a divorce might not even happen after all. Reports say that the couple has stalled the split by simply doing nothing. They have not done anything in months and sources close to the couple think that they are never going to anything.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner
Ben and Jennifer were always pretty showy with their love for each other, and the public liked it that way. Jennifer had that sweet, cute but sexy aura while Affleck, his knight in shining armor, had that dapper appeal that everyone loved. They attended a lot of events together. They also had children and were a great couple for 10 years. Unfortunately, things started getting rough.
Actually, their rift did not come all of a sudden as it appears that there always had been a problem with their marriage from the very start. The couple had mutual resentment for each other the whole time they were married. Affleck had a lot of addiction and cheating scandals and Garner just lost sympathy. Ultimately, she had enough when information came out that Affleck was having an affair with their nanny.
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield
This could be one of those that hurt the most. Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield were already an item even before “The Amazing Spiderman.” These two were quirky and had a good sense of humor. This is why it comes as a very small surprise that the public would be interested in their every move. They had an unstaged romance and even used their fan following to their advantage, which resulted to more paparazzi following them around.
On one occasion, they held out placards supporting a certain charitable cause while walking when they knew that paparazzi would be present. They seemed like a power couple, but sadly it had to end. The two reportedly remain friends.
Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne
It’s not always sunshine and rainbows when you marry a rockstar and get really popular with a show that looks into your family’s day to day affairs. It especially feels weird when couples who have done reality shows together break up. This couple had been in the public eye for a long time, dating back to Ozzy’s Black Sabbath days when Sharon was a manager. In 2002, “The Osbournes” got launched and everyone had a closer look at what exactly happens in their real lives.
They split up a few years after, just as their unique relationship had started to become endearing to viewers. Fans were devastated upon learning of their separation. Fortunately, love prevailed and the couple eventually ended up reconciling.
Chris Pratt and Anna Faris
Anna Faris and Chris Pratt had announced earlier this week that they have gone their separate ways after being married for eight years. The couple says that this decision was the result of having marital issues for the past 18 months.
A source told Page Six that the couple was very competitive with each other. When in public, they would compete over who is funnier and the other would feel insecure. Another factor is the sudden rise in Pratt’s career with big roles in “Jurassic Park” and “Guardians of the Galaxy.” Pratt started losing weight and was no longer the big star anymore. He also happens to be very religious while Faris is reportedly not so much.
While everyone thinks that Hollywood couples have the best relationships with all the money and attention, the reality is that these people even have a harder time maintaining a healthy one. Which celebrity breakup affected you the most? Hit us up in the comments below.
