It’s like clockwork in Hollywood… We just have to guess when the big breakup will hit the airwaves. And I don’t know what’s more interesting- when celebs hookup or when they breakup? Well, this year the breakups served us scandal with a side of cheating. Let’s reminisce a little shall we?
Sandra Bullock, 46, and Jesse James, 41
It seemed life couldn’t get any better for Bulloc, after she won her best-actress Oscar. But shortly following, accusations of Jame’s unfaithfulness spread like wildfire. Although the two sadly split, Sandra now shares her home with an adopted baby boy.
Courteney Cox, 46, and David Arquette, 39
After 11 years of marriage, Courteney and David split. Shocking! What was even more surprising, was Arquettes openness on Howard Stern’s Sirius radio show. It was then rumored that he was going through a “breakdown”.
Scarlett Johansson, 26, and Ryan Reynolds
This one was the most shocking to me. But I guess looks fade or jealousy conquers all. The same year Reynolds was awarded “Sexiest Man Alive” by People Magazine, was the same year he filed for divorce. Ironic?
Christina Aguilera, 30, and Jordan Bratman
It was a little random when the singer up and decided to divorce her husband, Jordan Bratman back in October. And I’m still unsure why the couple couldn’t make it work. Who knows?
Kate Winslet, 35, and Sam Mendes, 45
I think this marriage was hush-hush for a reason. Both Oscar winners called it quits after being married for seven years and even have a 6-year-old son named Joe. Winslet now has a new model-boyfriend.
Blake Lively, 23, and Penn Badgely, 24
Well if Gossip Girl is going to end, then I guess it means it’s over for Blake and Penn. After three years of dating the couple decided to split.
Zac Efron, 23, and Vanessa Hudgens, 22
Efron recently split from bad girl girlfriend whom he met on “High School Musical”.
Eva Longoria, 35, and Tony Parker, 28
Three years after a gorgeous fantasy wedding in Paris on the supposedly lucky date of 07/07/07, the actress and Spurs player divorced in November. Rumors spread that Tony was sending inappropriate text messages to a mutual girl friend.
Sean Penn, 50, and Robin Wright, 44
“The couple, whose on-and-off marriage produced two children, first filed for divorce in December 2007, then reconciled, then filed for legal separation in April 2009 and again reconciled before Wright filed for divorce on August 12, 2009; it was finalized on July 22,” according to The Arizona Republic.
Jenny McCarthy, 38, and Jim Carrey, 48
The adorably comedic couple split after five years of dating.
Halle Berry, 44, and Gabriel Aubry, 34
The couple split after 4 years. But this was no dramatic split. It fact Gabriel issued a statement saying Halle was “one of the most special and beautiful people that I have ever known.” The couple met at a Versace event in 2006 and have a 2-year-old daughter named Nahla.
