Many couples can make their relationship work, but the truth is that many people do not last a lifetime together! It is already difficult to go through a divorce when you are an ordinary person, but it is even harder when you are a celebrity. After all, the media will follow your every move during such a difficult time in your life. A lot of people end up marrying the wrong person when they were young. This list is all about celebrity marriages you either don’t remember and have no idea even happened!
Bradley Cooper And Jennifer Esposito
In 2006, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Esposito became man and wife. We are sad to report that it was clearly not meant to be. The two of them got a divorce the year after that, after all. Not long after the couple split up, the award-winning actor started going out with Renee Zellweger.
Emmy Rossum And Justin Siegel
Best known for her role in Shameless, Emmy Rossum got married in secret in February 2008. The lucky man was Justin Siegel, her music producer boyfriend. Even though they successfully managed to keep the ceremony private, word got out that he filed for divorce a year and a half after that.
James Cameron And Kathryn Bigelow
Did you know that director James Cameron has been married five different times? One of these unions had been to another Hollywood filmmaker: Kathryn Bigelow. The power couple tied the knot in 1989. Their talent failed to keep them together because they got a divorce two years after they said, “I do.”
Scott Foley And Jennifer Garner
In 1998, Scott Foley and Jennifer Garner got to know each other as they were taping Felicity. The two of them walked down the aisle in October 2000. The actress filed for divorce in May 2003. After that, she dated her Alias colleague Michael Vartan but later married Ben Affleck.
Drew Barrymore And Tom Green
This is one of the shortest marriages on the list! Comedian Tom Green and actress Drew Barrymore got hitched in July 2001. No one thought that he would file for divorce before the year came to an end! The couple worked together in Tom’s Freddy Got Fingered and Charlie’s Angels.
Julia Roberts And Lyle Lovett
When Julia Roberts married country musician Lyle Lovett, the world was heartbroken. The couple tied the knot in June 1993. Sadly, they decided that it was best to go their own ways. They got a divorce in March 1995. This was a couple of years before the actress started to go out with Benjamin Bratt.
Michael Douglas And Diandra Luker
The child of an Austrian diplomat, Diandra Luker had been 19 years old when she and Michael Douglas got married in March 1977. They had a son called Cameron together, although they ended up divorcing in 1995. The actor has been married to Catherine Zeta-Jones, his current wife, for two decades now.
Tom Cruise And Mimi Rogers
You already know that he married Katie Holmes and Nicole Kidman, but you might not remember or know his marriage to Mimi Rogers. The actor and actress exchanged vows in May 1987. Sadly, their union did not last very long, either. The couple went on to finalize the divorce in February 1990.
Mario Lopez And Ali Landry
In April 2004, Mario Lopez got married to the gorgeous Ali Landry. Can you guess how long the two of them stayed husband and wife? Whatever you said, it was probably longer than the real answer. You see, the two of them got an annulment only two weeks after the wedding!
Cindy Crawford And Richard Gere
We all know who supermodel Cindy Crawford is, right? In the same vein, you probably also know the dashing Richard Gere. There is no denying the fact that the two of them make a beautiful couple. They tied the knot in 1991. Unfortunately, they called it quits four years after that.
Madonna And Sean Penn
Here is another marriage that only lasted four years, gives or take. Madonna got married to Sean Penn in 1985. By 1989, the two of them were no longer husband and wife. The pair appeared in a film called Shanghai Surprise. On top of that, the Queen of Pop dedicated the album True Blue to him.
Kid Rock And Pamela Anderson
This is yet another short-lived marriage, even by Hollywood standards. If you ask us, it sounded like Kid Rock and Pamela Anderson had a fun wedding. They got married at a party on a yacht in Saint-Tropez. This took place in July 2006, but the two of them were already leading their own lives by November.
Renée Zellweger And Kenny Chesney
We already know that Renee Zellweger once dated Bradley Cooper, but she was married to Kenny Chesney before that. In May 2005, the two of them exchanged vows on a Caribbean island called St. John. Four months later, they got annulled. Interestingly, she cited “fraud” as the reason for their split!
Ryan Reynolds And Scarlett Johansson
In September 2008, Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds tied the knot in a private ceremony. As you probably already know, the couple is no longer together. In December 2010, the pair let the world know that they were splitting up. He later married Blake Lively, his costar in Green Lantern
Nicolas Cage And Lisa Marie Presley
Many people in the world dream of tying the knot in Hawaii. What can be better than marrying your partner in a tropical paradise? This was the reality for Nicolas Cage and Lisa Marie Presley, who married there in August 2002. Sadly, the actor filed for divorce only three months after that.
Kate Winslet And Sam Mendes
Here is another dreamy tropical destination wedding! In May 2003, Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes became man and wife. The two of them went on to have a child together, and a son called Joe. We are sad to say that it was not meant to last forever. The two called it quits and got a divorce in March 2010.
Jennifer Lopez And Ojani Noa
In February 1997, Jennifer Lopez got married to a Cuban actor by the name of Ojani Noa. She had been married three times in her life, but he was the first one she called her husband. The marriage, like many others on the list, disintegrated pretty quickly. They were divorced in less than a year.
Shannen Doherty And Ashley Hamilton
Did you know that Ashley Hamilton is the son of George Hamilton? In October 1992, he and Shannen Doherty made a rather rash decision. They got married after two weeks of seeing each other. We doubt that anyone was surprised to hear that they divorced in April. He claimed that she threatened him.
Janet Jackson And René Elizondo Jr.
Janet Jackson first made the acquaintance of Rene Elizondo Jr. in the ‘80s. The two of them got married in secret in 1991. Sadly, they eventually called it quit in 2000. He even sued the musician for $10 million over their “flimsy prenup agreement.” Unfortunately for her, he ended up winning the case.
Carmen Electra And Dennis Rodman
Did you know that, in November 1998, Dennis Rodman and Carmen Electra got married in Las Vegas? However, they were only together for nine days before they called it off. The gorgeous model later said that the decision to do such a thing was like “getting a cheeseburger at a fast-food restaurant.”
Hank Azaria And Helen Hunt
Helen Hunt and Hank Azaria spent a total of seven months as husband and wife. To be specific, they had been together from 1999 to 2000. They cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the divorce. She started going out with Matthew Carnahan in 2001, but they split up not that long ago.
Angelina Jolie And Billy Bob Thornton
We are sure that you know all about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. But did you know that she was once married to Billy Bob Thornton? She met him on the set of Pushing Tin in 1999. They tied the knot the following year and divorced in 2002. She got custody of Maddox, their newly adopted child.
Angelina Jolie And Jonny Lee Miller
The truth is that Billy Bob Thornton was not her first husband, either. Before that, she married another actor called Johnny Lee Miller, who starred in Elementary. They exchanged vows in 1996 but ultimately broke up in February 1999. Yes, this means that he was her first husband!
Brooke Shields And Andre Agassi
In 1993, the gorgeous Brooke Shields started a relationship with athlete Andre Agassi. The two of them walked down the aisle in 1997. Two years later, the couple broke up. She is currently married to a TV writer by the name of Chris Henchy. The tennis star, on the other hand, is married to Steffi Graf.
Sophia Bush And Chad Michael Murray
If you are a huge fan of One Tree Hill, you probably already know that Chad Michael Murray and Sophia Bush were once married! They became husband and wife in April 2005. Sadly, they were not the right person for each other. This was evident when they divorced only five months after the wedding.
