As they say, Hollywood marriages aren’t known to last. With their hectic work schedules, travel all over the world, access to millions of dollars, and incredible parties full of sexy temptations, most celebs don’t seem to be able to make it until the golden years with their spouses. Many try, but with some gorgeous and seductive homewreckers out there, most Hollywood marriages don’t have what it takes. So, who are these hot homewreckers, and more importantly: whose marriages have they broken up? While we’ve compiled a list of 16 of Hollywood’s hottest homewreckers, it is only too easy to blame the women for the demise of the marriage after an affair. Most of these men are known cheaters and even the hottest ladies on this list have also had their just desserts when the men cheated on them as well. Read on…
16. Angelina Jolie
The most obvious of Hollywood homewreckers, the incredibly sensual and adventurous Angelina Jolie notoriously stole one of the hottest actors in Hollywood from his wife. Angelina and Brad Pitt met on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith and after that it was splitsville for Brad and then-wife Jennifer Anniston. Brad has stated that his marriage to her was just not a great time in his life and that Angelina lifted him out of the funk he was feeling. The two have now become the power couple, with a combined net worth of $440 million. Brad ended up with one of the sexiest women in Hollywood and she did the same. Breaking up a home was definitely worth it for those two.
15. Leann Rimes
Leann Rimes twanged that she wanted her man and she got him. Even though Eddie Cibrian was married to Brandi Glanville, the two started an affair that would take him away from his wife and children. The 33-year-old country beauty stole her chiseled hunk while still married to one of her back-up dancers, after the met on the set of a made-for-tv film, Nothern Lights. Brandi hasn’t been too happy about Leann’s posting of her children’s photos on social media, especially the ones on vacation where Leann rocks it in a bikini.
14. Claire Danes
The seemingly innocent Claire Danes had her first kiss with the opposite sex on-screen, but it seems all bets were off after that. Falling in love with co-star Billy Crudup also meant stealing him away from his pregnant girlfriend, Mary Louise Parker, of who he had been shacked up with for over eight years. The beautiful Claire has since moved on, but I’m sure little William (still, despite being abandoned, named after his father) isn’t too fond of her.
13. Denise Richards
Stealing a man from Heather Locklear has got to be no easy task, but Denise Richards managed to do this, right under the nose of her former best friend. Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora was married to Heather Locklear and within days of their split was seen out with her friend Denise Richards. The women feuded for years, saying that friends just don’t do that, but eventually Denise and Richie split. Until they got back together again. This time Heather gave her blessing, probably because she knows that once the trash is out, it should stay out.
12. Amber Heard
Johnny Depp has no problem getting the hottest ladies, but he has a little problem keeping them. Once married to the insanely gorgeous Vanessa Paradis, Johnny couldn’t really keep it in his pants around other women, including his private stewardess. But, it was Amber Heard, his co-star on The Rum Diaries, who seems to have turned his head away from his wife of almost 20 years and his children. The bisexual actress lured Johnny from his wife, who says he couldn’t keep his mind off of her. They married before the movie was released.
11. Abbie Cornish
Young actors Ryan Phillipe and Reese Witherspoon seemed like the perfect cute couple. This was until the Ryan got comfy and cozy with his Stop-Loss co-star Abbie Cornish, ending his marriage and putting Reese’s career into a slump (as she tells it). Rumours swirled for months about the relationship, but Ryan didn’t admit it until Reese was back in the driver’s seat with her own new beau. Both Ryan and Reese have broken up with their post-divorce flings and are now again both single. Maybe the home isn’t wrecked after all?
10. Marla Maples
As if you haven’t heard enough about the Donald, we all know he is a douchebag. But back when he was married to Ivana Trump, he was just getting started. After gushing about him to the media, Ivana was dumped by the Trump after a very public affair with Hawaiian Tropic model Marla Maples. The affair was so public that Donald took Marla on a family holiday vacation with his wife and children. He later said that he didn’t care what the media thought as long as he had a “young and beautiful piece of ass”. After a messy divorce from Ivana, Trump married Marla, although the union didn’t last.
9. Britney Spears
Usually it is some unknown mistress who breaks up a power couple, but in Britney Spears case, she was the celeb who broke up the unknown name’s family. Britney began dating Kevin Federline, a dancer for her ex Justin Timberlake, when he was still with Shar Jackson. Even worse, Shar and Kevin had a child and she was also seven months pregnant. Shar says it “wasn’t like just breaking up a relationship. It was like breaking up a family.” Britney didn’t seem to care and denied that she was seeing Kevin, which obviously was a lie as the two later married, announcing their engagement the same month Shar had Kevin’s second baby. Unfortunately for Spears, the union didn’t last and she lost custody of the two children she had with Kevin. Breaking up families is dirty work.
8. Carla Bruni
Mick Jagger was never a beacon for how to be a faithful husband, but it took the gorgeous, young Carla Bruni to eventually ruin his marriage. Originally dating Eric Clapton, it is said he told Mick that he was falling in love and please “not this one”. The day after Jerri Hall gave birth to their child, Carla was by his side, continuing the affair. He would eventually return to his wife (and later they would end it) and Carla says she was devastated. She wasn’t all that devastated as she is now married to the scandalous former French president, Nicholas Sarkozy.
7. Erin Barry
Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria is known for her beauty and rocking body, but that alone was not enough to keep her husband, basketball player Tony Parker from sleeping with other women. Eva’s marriage ended after she caught Tony sexting Erin Barry, wife of Brent Barry, a teammate. The two couples were previously friends and are obviously not any longer. Everyone’s moved on since, although there is no comment about the ongoing sexting.
6. Brittany Kerr
Mistress-turned-wife Brittany Kerr got her man Jason Aldean while he was still married to his childhood sweetheart, with whom he has two children. After photos surfaced of some very raunchy PDA at a bar between Brittany and Jason, he filed for divorce from his wife and told his fans to “move on” and basically get over his lusty double life. He married Brittany not long after, with his children playing a large part in the wedding. The sexy blonde seems no worse for wear as her and Jason are now prepping to have their own kids.
5. Miranda Lambert
Accused of sleeping with five separate men during her marriage to Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert is no wussy when it comes to breaking up homes. Blake himself was married when Miranda met and seduced the country singer. The two say they fell in love on stage, both knowing it was wrong because he was married, but went for it anyway. He promptly broke off his marriage and came public with his relationship to Miranda. But, as they say, what goes around comes around and Miranda and Blake are now having the same problems.
4. Gabrielle Union
In another case of what goes around comes around, Gabrielle Union was the former mistress to her now-husband Dwayne Wade. Dwayne’s wife even filed a lawsuit to shut down the relationship, saying they had engaged in sexual activities in front of their children. But, the former wife lost her case and her children to boot. Since then Gabrielle and Dwayne married, only to have rumours of his affairs on her, including that he fathered another child while they “were on a break”.
3. Alicia Keys
Gorgeous singer Alicia Keys won a Grammy then proceeded to break up the marriage of Swizz Beatz and his wife Mashonda. At the time they both denied it, but as true to a cheater, they later married. And again, cheaters remain cheaters and he also cheated on Alicia, who is now the mother of his children. The two are still together.
2. Traci Lynn Johnson
NY Giants star Tiki Barber married Traci Lynn Johnson just eight days after his divorce to his wife of eleven years, who he left when she was eight months pregnant with his twins. To add insult to injury, he left because of his affair with Traci Lynn, a pin-up model for Maxim magazine. Tiki got himself into trouble after stating that his affair in the attic of a friend’s house was sort of an “Anne Frank” thing. He stated Traci Lynn was wonderful and got him through “bad things”. You know, like cheating on his wife in someone’s attic while she sat home alone pregnant with twins, those bad things. She’s such a saint!
1. Khloe Kardashian
As if there isn’t anything that will surprise you about the Kardashians, but Khloe is definitely one hot homewrecker. In a case of cheating on cheaters with other cheaters, Khloe started dating French Montana when he was still living with rapper Trina. This was after Khloe’s husband Lamar Odom cheated on her with multiple women. But, Trina is also known to have cheated on a number of men. Isn’t there enough to go around without having to cheat?
