Hollywood, the land of broken dreams. Take a look at these celebrity relationships that crumbled under the pressures of fame.
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Afflek
2002 – 2004
Back in 2002 the Boston actor started dating Jenny from the Block (Jennifer Lopez) and the couple were engaged the same year. After two years the couple separated sighting too much media attention as the cause. Affleck allegedly out partying with Christian Slater and some lap dancers in Vancouver may have also contributed to the split.
Jennifer Garner and Michael Vartan
2003 – 2004
Alias’ Jennifer Garner and Michael Vartan briefly dated during their stint on the hit television series. The two had worked together as co-stars since 2001 and had to continue working together until the series ended in 2006
Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder
1989 – 1993
Johnny Depp was so sure Winona was the one that he got ‘Winona Forever’ tattooed on his arm. The relationship proved to be far less permanent. When the couple separated in 1993 Depp had the tattoo altered to read ‘Wino Forever’.
Chad Michael Murray and Sophia Bush
2004 – 2006
The One Tree Hill co-stars dated for nearly two years before getting married only to divorce months later with Bush citing fraud as reason for the divorce.
Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston
1998 – 2005
One of Hollywood’s more durable couples the two divorced in 2005 after 7 years of marriage amongst rumors that Brad Pitt had been unfaithful with Mr and Mrs. Smith co-star Angelina Jolie. The break up has even spawned T-shirts of ‘Team Aniston’ and ‘Team Jolie’. This split is still a hot topic for discussion.
Drew Barrymore and Tom Green
2001 – 2002
This short lived celebrity relationship may have shocked Barrymore fans who wondered why she married Tom Green. What may be an even bigger mystery is why someone like Tom Green would file for divorce when married to someone like Drew Barrymore.
