Breaking up can be tough for everyone. Furthermore, as senseless as it might appear, celebrity breakups can hit us almost as hard as when our old buddies split up as we feel like we know them. We feel happy for them in their good times and continue feeling sad if they ever go through a scandalous breakup. Hence, we’ve made a list of a few celebrity breakups that made us cry, angry, or surprised.
1. Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston
One of Hollywood’s most sultry couples. Everyone knew Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston as the hottest couple in the late ’90s and mid-2000s. Their agents actually introduced them to each other in 1998. They married on July 29, 2000, and after their wedding, people saw them everywhere together. Yet, bits of gossip started to float around after their marriage, with many revealing that Pitt wanted to have children while Aniston didn’t. They split following five years of marriage after Pitt supposedly took part in an extramarital affair with his co-star Angelina Jolie.
2. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie had a much-discussed relationship from beginning to end. The two met while shooting the action-comedy film Mr. and Mrs. Smith in 2004 while Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston. Aniston and Pitt split in 2005; however, it isn’t confirmed when this new relationship precisely began. Pitt and Jolie started dating openly in 2005. Separation reports tormented the couple during almost their whole marriage, so their split in 2017 came as a big hit for fans as nobody had expected this power couple to break up.
3. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner were a pair people thought would last together for a long time. They met in 2000 on the sets of Pearl Harbor and got engaged in April 2005. The pair wedded in June while Garner was four months pregnant with their first kid. However, since good things don’t last, their relationship didn’t either. They reported their split in 2015, with many accusing Ben’s supposed affair with the couple’s nanny, Christine Ouzounian, which Affleck denied.
4. Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield
Proceeding with the extraordinary custom of Hollywood couples dating in the wake of starring together in hero flicks, Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone met on the sets of The Amazing Spider-Man in 2010. While they were seen together ahead of time, they were seen kissing in 2012, solidifying their couple status. Be that as it may, their split occurred in 2015; however, the previous couple never formally affirmed anything.
5. Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling
Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling won America’s most adored on-screen pair since they played a couple in The Notebook. Thus, you may be shocked to hear they loathed each other when they met on the set of that film. Director Nick Cassavetes came forward about Gosling needing to dismiss her from the set since they didn’t get along. However, things changed rapidly, as the two started dating not long after the film ended its shoot in 2004. As unfortunate as it was, they separated in 2007 as it was reported that a huge fight had gone down.
