It’s so unfortunate when you see a woman who is at the top of her game in her career, beautiful, smart and funny, with a guy who is the opposite of all of that. Some people believe that beautiful women are attracted to jerks. While that may be true for some women, it’s still baffling to see a woman who seems like such a nice person, with a guy who leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to social graces.
You may think things like this only happen in the “real world,” but the truth is that celebrities deal with this problem as well. Maybe it really is true that women love bad boys, whether the women are celebrities or not. Of course, being drawn to a complete douchebag could be a self-esteem issue, which proves that no amount of money can buy self-love. Then again, these marriages could all be one big celebrity publicity ploy. As you can see these relationships continue to get a tremendous amount of attention. The women in the marriages are beautiful and have an innocent and endearing image, while their husbands are rebels who have a lot to learn when it comes to treating people well. Here are 12 beautiful female celebrities who have douchebags for husbands.
12. Hilaria Thomas
Hilaria Thomas is actor Alec Baldwin’s wife. She’s been a host on Extra and is a certified yoga instructor. Hilaria has also appeared on a number of talk shows to talk about the benefits of yoga. The Spain-born host and fitness guru seems to be a lovely person. Maybe her husband should take some lessons from her. Alec, who is part of the famous Baldwin Brothers, was previously married to actress Kim Basinger. During their custody battle, Baldwin referred to his daughter as a “pig.” Nice. He also refers to retired Black police officers as “coons.” Yet, Hilaria had two children with him. There are some things we’ll never understand.
11. Jessica Biel
Jessica Biel rose to fame when she played the role of Mary on the long-running WB sitcom, 7th Heaven. She was the bad girl from a good family who was just trying to find her way. However, in real life, it seems that she’s the good girl in her relationship with husband Justin Timberlake. Biel and Timberlake dated for years before calling it quits, but reports say that Biel really wanted to get back together. However, Justin was too busy having fun. When he finally got ready to be serious, the two allegedly “met” while on vacation to talk about making their relationship permanent. They recently had a son together, but there have long been allegations of Justin being unfaithful, even after he wed Biel. Remember when Timberlake made the video to the song “Cry Me a River” with a Britney Spears lookalike (Spears is his ex-girlfriend)? Well, it looks like Justin doesn’t mind cheating on his wife, he just doesn’t want to be cheated on. We’re not even sure what to say about this.
Fergie has a pretty sexy image, and she’s definitely made a name for herself as the only female member of the Black Eyed Peas. However, she admits that she’s just a hopeless romantic who wanted to settle down with a good guy and raise a family. She thought she found that in actor Josh Duhammel, but not long after the two tied the knot, Josh was accused of cheating on Fergie. There were pictures and tabloid stories everywhere, which was no doubt embarrassing, to say the least. There have also been reports that Josh isn’t exactly the easiest person to deal with on set. The couple have a son together, so we’re hoping Duhammel’s negative traits don’t rub off on the little guy.
9. Behati Prinsloo
Stunning model Behati Prinsloo got her big break in the modeling world when she became the face of Victoria’s Secret’s Pink line in 2008. The following year, she walked in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and appeared in the 2011 and 2015 shows as well. These days, Prinsloo is making headlines due to her marriage to Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine. Sure, she’s the envy of most women, but that’s probably because they don’t actually have to live with Levine. Reportedly, the singer broke up with ex-girlfriend Jessica Simpson via text message, and he had no problem publicly sl*t-shaming Lindsay Lohan. Levine and Prinsloo also ended their relationship briefly when they were dating, during which time Adam dated another model, then got back with Behati. Sounds like the co-host of The Voice is a real stand-up guy.
Sure, Madonna isn’t exactly known as being the most soft-spoken or “innocent” celebrity, but some of the things she went through with ex-husband Sean Penn, are just inexcusable. The actor kidnapped Madonna in her own home, tied her up, and tortured her. There were also reports of the two having domestic disputes before then. Sean Penn went on to marry actress Robin Wright-Penn, and had multiple affairs while he was married to her. In recent years, Madonna and Penn have expressed sentiments that indicate they will always have love for each other. Fortunately, Madonna has been smart enough not to go down that relationship road again.
7. Sandra Bullock
Poor Sandra. She seems like such a lovely lady. However, her romantic choices aren’t that great. She was once married to Jesse James, who reportedly has never been faithful to anyone, ever. He pretty much proved this when he moved on to tattoo artist Kat Von D, and cheated on her as well. Aside from being a womanizer and complete jerk, James is allegedly a Neo Nazi, and some of his social media commentary further proves the point that he’s pretty committed to being a douche. Recently, Bullock started dating photographer Bryan Randall, but there have been reports that Randall has douche tendencies as well. What a shame.
6. Nicole Kidman
Nicole Kidman has described her marriage to Tom Cruise as going “through hell and back.” When a woman who once committed her life to you says that living with you is pure hell, that’s a sign that you’re probably a douchebag. Cruise has been known to say some pretty ignorant and insensitive things, and there have long been reports that he “interviews” women to marry and makes them go through a rigorous process to ensure they are suitable for the Church of Scientology. After Cruise and Kidman divorced, Tom went on to marry Katie Holmes, and we all know what a disaster that was. Fortunately, Nicole Kidman has found love again with singer and American Idol judge Keith Urban. We still have hope for Katie.
5. Katy Perry
Katy Perry is another celebrity who is beautiful, talented and has awful taste in men. She was married to actor and comedian Russell Brand a few years ago, and claims that he pretty much told her he was divorcing her via text. Brand has also stated that he and Perry’s love life was really boring, and that he’d be lying in bed thinking of other women just to get himself through the night. That’s a terrible thing to say about your wife, even if it’s true. Katy Perry went on to have an on-again, off-again relationship with John Mayer, who everyone knows is King of Douches. We’re starting to think she likes being romantically linked to bona-fide jerks.
4. Kim Kardashian
Sure, Kim Kardashian doesn’t exactly have a pristine reputation. But you’ve got to feel sorry for a woman who is married to Kanye West. If we’re sick of him just from hearing him say ridiculous things in interviews and debuting horrible fashion lines, imagine what Kim has to go through at home! West has stated that he’s a “genius” several times, and has made it clear that people just don’t understand him, but he’s one of the greatest people to ever live. Yes, he’s a great rapper (we wish he’d get back to that), and he can be entertaining at times, but West is out of control more often than not. Kim and Kanye have a daughter together, and recently welcomed a son, so hopefully the gift of motherhood will give Kim less time to be subjected to Kanye’s strange behavior.
3. Jennifer Garner
Jennifer Garner has also seemed like the girl next door. She’s got a bright smile and a friendly demeanor, and she just seems like she doesn’t mean any harm. That’s why so many people felt sorry for the TV and movie actress when the news surfaced that her husband Ben Affleck was cheating on her. The two had been married for 10 years when the public got wind of the scandal. Apparently, Affleck took a liking to the babysitter. Classic douchebag behavior. There have since been reports that Garner and Affleck are working on their relationship and reconsidering their separation. We’re not so sure that’s a good idea.
2. Maria Shriver
Respected journalist and author Maria Shriver was accomplished in her own right. She’s had success in her career and is a member of the Kennedy family. So, when she married Arnold Schwarzenegger in 1986, everyone thought it was a match made in heaven. When Schwarzenegger ran for governor of California and won, Shriver became the first lady of the state from 2003 to 2011. Everything seemed to be picture perfect until it was revealed that Arnold fathered a child with the family’s housekeeper. Shriver even hired a private investigator to ensure that Arnold hadn’t fathered any more children. Few things are more heartbreaking than building a life with someone for decades and then being betrayed. Needless to say, most people have a very different opinion of Arnold Schwarzenegger these days.
1. Melania Trump
Melania Trump is a former model and is now a jewelry and watch designer. She is married to Donald Trump, and that’s got to be a real challenge, even though Donald claims the two have never had an argument. Now that Donald is running for president, there’s lots of pressure on Melania to prepare for the possibility of being the First Lady. Her husband is definitely not making it easy though, since he’s suggested that all immigrants should leave the US. He’s also made sexist remarks about the female presidential candidates and is just an all-around jerk. At this point, we’re not even sure what to say about Trump. However, we do feel sorry for Melania.
