Getting your heart broken by your spouse or long-time significant other is always difficult, but imagine what it would be like if the entire world knew about it? Literally, the entire world. Some people just don’t realize how badly it hurts the other person involved, when they decide to fraternize with another person while they are still married or living with someone. And some people just don’t seem to care. Or it could be that the heart just takes over and they are not thinking about the consequences in the process.
There are some actors who portray a person who is in love with another person on screen, and nothing ever comes of it. Then there are some actors who don’t quite seem to notice the difference between made-up Hollywood and real-life. These days, it is quite hard for one to hide their infidelities from their spouses, especially with camera phones lurking around every corner. Some people think that the affair itself is horrible enough, but sneaking around and lying is even worse. Then there are some who just think if you keep it quiet, then maybe nobody will notice…
10. Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie
One of the most infamous celebrity affairs was when Brad Pitt was married to Friends star, Jennifer Aniston. Brad starred alongside Angelina Jolie, in the movie, Mr. & Mrs. Smith back in 2004, where they both played a married couple who secretly worked as secret agents. Anyone who saw the movie could see the magnetism that was developing between the two. It may have just been really good acting, but surely there was a lot more to it than simply a great sense of direction.
For years, Brad had denied that anything had happened between him and Angelina on the set of the movie, but it was finally admitted in 2008 (two years after he and Jennifer had split up) that Mr. & Mrs. Smith was his favorite movie, due to the fact that it was where he and Angelina “fell in love.” That was nothing that the rest of the world did not already know, after seeing the way the two looked at each other during conferences regarding the movie.
9. Ryan Phillippe/Abbie Cornish
Reese Witherspoon was married to actor, Ryan Phillippe for seven years before Ryan met Abbie Cornish on the set of Stop-Loss back in 2008. Ryan denied any involvement with Abbie during the making of the movie, up until Reese found damning evidence against her husband when she found a text that Ryan had sent to Abbie, confirming the fact that he was cheating on her. Since then, Ryan and Abbie moved in together with Ryan and Reese’s children and have recently broken up. Ryan and Reese still remain friends, “for the sake of the children.”
8. Kristen Stewart/Rupert Sanders
Rupert Sanders, the forty-one year old film director, was captured in several photographs involving Kristen Stewart, following their involvement in the movie, Snow White and the Huntsman. Rupert was the director for that movie and Kristen was an actress as well, and they were both involved with other people at that time. The pictures were published in the magazine Us Weekly in July 2012, which proved that there were shenanigans between Kristen and Rupert, who just happened to be married during that time. Kristen and Rupert both apologized to their significant others, and Rupert divorced soon after.
7. James Cameron/Suzy Amis
James Cameron has directed and produced an amazing, numerous amount of films throughout the years; including Avatar, The Abyss, Terminator, True Lies and Titanic. James has been married five times, in which he has met several of his wives during the filming of a few of his movies. His latest wife is no exception. Suzy Amis played a small part in Titanic, where she met the director, James Cameron while he was still married to Linda Hamilton. In referring to his marriage to Suzi, James was reported saying, “I have been married five times. I’m a perfectionist, so I kept trying until I got it right. Which I have. Suzy Amis is a keeper.”
6. Meg Ryan/Russell Crowe
While Meg Ryan was married to actor Dennis Quaid, Dennis had multiple affairs (according to his former wife). This was not acceptable, but their marriage seemed to last for nine years, up until Meg met actor, Russell Crowe on the set of Proof of Life in 2000. It appeared that people in glass houses should not throw stones, or at least, that is what Meg had said about it during an interview with a current internet magazine. Apparently, what is good for the goose is not so good for the gander…
5. Eddie Cibrian/LeAnn Rimes
Northern Lights was a movie made specifically for television back in 2009, where Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes play the main roles. Eddie’s character falls in love with LeAnn’s character, and they soon decide to imitate art with real life. Both Eddie and LeAnn were married at the time, refusing to admit that anything was going on behind closed doors. Soon after the movie was released, a video that showed a very intimate meeting with Eddie and LeAnn, proving that more than a “simple friendship” was occurring between the two.
4. Robert Rodriguez/Rose McGowan
Robert Rodriguez was the director for the movie Grindhouse, in which he and Rose McGowan were doing more than just “acting out roles.” They were reported to have had private lunches in his trailer and his wife found out about it. Rose never denied the allegations, and she and Robert got engaged a while later. Currently, the engagement is off and Rose does not seem to be taking it too lightly. She told reporters that Robert did not want to leave to do a remake of Barbarella because ”he doesn’t know” how to work outside of his home state of Texas,” although that is not true. Robert did not want to film Barbarella because it would mean leaving his five children (from his previous wife) to be on the set in Germany. During the time of the affair with Robert and Rose, Robert had to take an entire month off of filming the movie, Grindhouse because he was having a hard time “dealing” with the situation that he created. Robert was married to his wife for sixteen years before the affair with Rose, in which she had even worked with at the time.
3. Billy Bob Thornton/Angelina Jolie
Angelina Jolie has adopted multiple children and surely cares for them more than just about anything in the world. She also is concerned about the diseased and hungry in third-world countries. But it seems Angelina is not concerned about any of the women that she steals men from, when she decides that man is who she wants. Angelina Jolie met ex-husband, Billy Bob Thornton on the set of Pushing Tin in 1999. He was engaged to actress Laura Dern during that time, and broke off the engagement to be with Angelina. Billy Bob and Angelina were married for three years before she moved on to someone else.
2. Daniel Craig/Rachel Weisz
Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz claimed that nothing was “going on” between them when they were filming Dream House. They were both engaged to someone else at the time, but yet ended up flying away together for a secret wedding ceremony, where only a few guests were invited. When asked why they kept the ceremony such a low-key event, supposedly one of them had said it was “out of respect for their previous partners.”
1. Elizabeth Taylor/Richard Burton
If Angelina Jolie takes the cake for stealing the most men in the last thirty years, then Elizabeth Taylor wins the prize for the previous thirty. Elizabeth Taylor was married a total of eight times, two of which was to the same man, Richard Burton. Elizabeth and Richard had met on the set of Cleopatra, while she was still married to Eddie Fisher. The irony in this case is that Eddie Fisher had actually left his wife, Debbie Reynolds, to be with Elizabeth years before. Elizabeth and Richard married first in 1964 for ten years, divorced, then re-married in 1975 to try again. That time it only lasted a year.
Richard Burton was also married when he and Elizabeth started their affair, yet neither of the two seemed to care who they were hurting. Including each other. Elizabeth took countless sleeping pills, according to reports, to try and “kill herself for him,” and it was also reported that Richard had beat her so badly to the point where she could not even join the movie set for at least six weeks, during the filming of the movie they were in together. Richard seemed to have been a very brutal man, especially when he started drinking. She had left a very calm, heart-felt man in Eddie Fisher (even though he left another woman for her), to be with a man who beat her senseless. It is simply amazing how love can do this to a person.
