Hollywood is full of scandals that keep us entertained on a weekly basis. For people who are often put up on a pedestal due to their fame and fortune, they often can’t get their crap together any better than the rest of us can. When it comes to being in the public eye, celebrities want to try to keep their personal lives private, and they try to keep the skeletons locked safely away. You would think because of their obsessive need to be in the best light possible that they might refrain from certain scandals for fear that they would look like trash. Fear not, though these celebrities have gone and done the unthinkable without a care as to what people would think.
Stealing someone else’s man is one of those things that is frowned upon worldwide. After all, why do you need to take another’s spouse when there are plenty of fish around for everyone. Celebrities though appear above the rest but also have no qualms about dipping into someone else’s pool, if you know what I mean. Wink! Wink! If you have a good man or woman in Hollywood, hold on to them tight because it’s likely that there is a roving eye looking at them right now. These 15 celebrities are all balls and brass when it comes to swooping in and stealing any man they want. Hang on tight to your men ladies, especially if you see any of these famous celebrities around.
15. Angelina Jolie – Laura Dern
You may think that Brad was the first man that Angelina went after, but this woman has no qualms about going after and claiming anything that she sees in her path. She was once known as one of the sexiest women in Hollywood, and it seemed as if any man she came into contact with just bowed to her every whim. When Billy Bob met Angelina, he was in a three-year relationship with Laura Dern and at the time they owned a home together and were even discussing the possibility of getting married. Enter Angelina and everything changed. Laura Dern once said in an interview, “I left home to work on a movie, and while I was away, my boyfriend got married, and I’ve never heard from him again.” It just goes to show the character of Billy Bob Thornton, and when it comes to Angelina, it’s just best to keep a tight hold on your man.
14. Gisele Bundchen – Bridget Moynahan
You would think that someone that looked like Gisele would have no problem landing a single guy of her choice. After all, she basically has the whole world to choose from so why bother with a married man? In the case of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, when Gisele saw him she knew she just had to have him whether he was single or not. At the time he was dating actress Bridget Moynahan, famous for her role in Coyote Ugly and I Robot. She dated Tom for two years when Gisele came into the picture in 2006. Gisele swooped in and took Tom from Bridget even though Bridget told him that she was pregnant. He dumped her right away and announced that he was with Gisele all in the same month. Funny enough Gisele wasn’t sure that she wanted to stay with Tom after she found out about the baby, probably because it cramped her style of the life she imagined with her new man.
13. Angelina Jolie – Jennifer Aniston
The surprising part about the fact that Angelina Jolie always ends up with another woman’s man is that she has spoken publicly about the fact that she hates infidelity. She has stated in the media that she could never date a married man, and that’s probably why Brad and Angelina kept insisting that they did not get together on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith. In one interview Angelina stated that she could never be “intimate with a married man when my own father cheated on my mother…” Okay then, maybe she has a different version of what infidelity is. Although there have been a few different versions of how Brad and Angelina got together, she did admit that she would always be able to show her children the movie they were in as the time that their parents fell in love. Well, we all know that Brad was certainly married to Jennifer Aniston at that time.
12. Denise Richards – Heather Locklear
Denise Richards used to be best friends with Heather Locklear before she started getting cozy with Heather’s husband, Richie Sambora. The Wild Things star got a little too close to Richie causing a very ugly and public split between Heather and Richie in 2006. When the two divorced, Denise and Richie began publicly dating immediately. Obviously, their union ruined the friendship that Denise had with Heather. Not to mention, Denise and Richie eventually broke up anyways. These days the rocker from Bon Jovi has said how great Heather Locklear looks to this day so maybe he’s having a few regrets of his own. He gushed to People magazine about how amazing she looks these days, “She looks better than ever, she’s still hot!”
11. Evan Rachel Wood – Dita Von Teese
Everyone knows that Marilyn Manson and Evan Rachel Wood had a scandalous relationship. When they got together, she was quite young and fairly new to Hollywood. It seemed to be love at first sight except for the fact that he was already married to the sexy Dita Von Teese. Evan Rachel Wood met Marilyn when she worked on his horror film Phantasmagoria: The Visions of Lewis Carroll. He also hired her to be involved in his music video Heart-Shaped Glasses. The two of them started hooking up, and eventually, Dita got wind of it and wanted out of the marriage. She claimed that it was due to his substance abuse as well as his infidelity. “I get the impression he thinks I was unsupportive, but the truth is I wasn’t supportive of his lifestyle, and someone else came along who was.” Although Evan and Marilyn started off hot and heavy, their relationship was never stable, and it too eventually ended.
10. Khloe Kardashian – Her Friend Trina
Khloe used to be pretty tight with Trina; they were often photographed going to parties and just generally spent a lot of time together. You know you have a tight friendship when you go everywhere with one another. But when it comes to liking the same guy, it can be the very thing that breaks up a friendship. During this period of friendship, Trina dated both French Montana and James Harden, both of which ended up in Khloe’s home-wrecking hands. Doesn’t she know anything about the girl code? Well, it’s the same as the bro code: you stay away from your friend’s boyfriends! It shouldn’t be that hard to do. She certainly wouldn’t be the first Kardashian to steal someone’s man. There is no surer way to ruin a friendship than to steal your best friend’s, man. Trina got her revenge when she posted on Twitter saying that Khloe was always picking up her “sloppy seconds.” Eww!
9. Julia Roberts – Random Woman Named Vera
It’s true even America’s Sweetheart has trampled on marriage in her day. When it comes to such a high profile celebrity as Julia Roberts, there aren’t too many celebrities that have bigger careers than she does. So you can imagine she can probably grab onto any guy that she wants. While filming The Mexican with Brad Pitt, Julia met Danny Moder, a cameraman that was working on the set. He was married at the time to a woman named Vera. It was love at first sight for Julia, and she decided that she was “born to be the wife of this man.” While divorce proceedings were going on, Julia often said her relationship to Moder was complicated and even wore a T-shirt in public that read, “A Low Vera,” because she felt like Vera was holding up the divorce proceedings a little too much. She was determined to get her man at any cost, the two have now been married for fifteen years and have three children together.
8. Mia Farrow – Dory Previn
She is no stranger to scandal due to the weird marriages she has had in the past. In this case, she is being accused of stealing her best friend’s man and sometimes you have to wonder if there is anything quite lower than that. Mia Farrow has always been known to be a mysterious creature that can draw the eye. In the 60’s, Mia was best friends with songwriter Dory Previn who was at the time married to musician Andre Previn. At that time Mia was a beautiful young woman that stole Andre out from under Dory, she eventually learned of their affair when Mia became pregnant. She was served with divorce papers in 1970 and later wrote a song called “Beware of Young Girls” based on what happened to her. The whole situation was so upsetting for Dory that she was institutionalized and even underwent shock therapy.
7. Meg Ryan
Meg Ryan was always considered as a good girl in Hollywood; she was loved by all and could really do no wrong. That was of course until she met Russell Crowe. At the time she had been with her long time love Dennis Quaid, the two had been married for what seemed like forever and had children together. They seemed to have the perfect marriage and no one ever thought that anyone could break them up. That’s why it came as quite a shock when Meg Ryan strayed and continued on an affair with Russell Crowe when she was working with him in Proof of Life. They carried on together in a very public way, and Quaid eventually got sick of it and announced that the two were going to get divorced and go their separate ways. Ryan tried to defend her actions by saying that Quaid cheated on her throughout their marriage while Quaid thanked Russell for taking her off his hands.
6. LeAnn Rimes – Brandi Glanville
LeAnn Rimes shocked Nashville when it came out that she was having an affair with a married man. She had that good girl image that no one thought she could ever tarnish. What made it worse was LeAnn was also married to Dean Sheremet at the time. She had her eyes set on Eddie Cibrian who was married to a reality star at the time named Brandi Glanville. The foursome actually used to hang out together before the affair started. The affair came out, and a war started between Brandi and LeAnn as they threw insults at each other and Dean said this about finding out about the affair. “There was this bar that everyone hung out at after set, and I remember coming down the stairs and seeing the two of them shooting pool together. I could just tell by the body language that everything had changed. She’s shooting pool, shooting tequila, in a tight tank, tight jeans, over the knee boots and she’s standing across from him, playing with the pool cue. All of a sudden, there was a huge shift. My stomach dropped. I literally felt like I got hit.”
5. Tony Parker – Teammate’s Wife
It’s not just ladies out there that are going after their friend’s spouses; men can also be guilty parties to the deed. Tony Parker is a San Antonio Spurs player, and at the time he was married to Desperate Housewives Eva Longoria. The fact that he was already married to such a sexy woman makes it that much more surprising that he would cheat on her. He didn’t cheat with just any woman either, but he started up an affair with his buddy’s wife. He went after his teammate Brent Barry’s wife, and the two started getting together after they started sexting. The sexting, however, was Tony’s downfall because he forgot to delete the messages and Eva ended up coming across them on his phone. It was quite the scandal, and a lot of friendships were lost over the whole incident which must have made it really awkward when it came to game time.
4. Claire Danes – Mary Louise Parker
When it comes to the Hollywood movie set, it can be a breeding ground for infidelity. If you don’t have a solid foundation in your relationship, it can be easy to stray or fall in love with your co-stars because you are spending so much time with them when you’re not able to see your loved one. Many affairs have started on the Hollywood set. On the set of Stage Beauty, Claire Danes met Billy Crudup, and at the time he was in a relationship with Mary Louise Parker for almost a decade. Claire wasn’t even single at the time; she was also in a long-term relationship with Ben Lee. The affair was discovered, and Claire and Billy got together officially. In an interview Claire explained her choice to have an affair, “That was a choice I made to fall in love. It’s unpleasant to be cast in such an unflattering role, but I just had to remain steadfast…I was living with the same kind of integrity that I had always lived with.”
3. Britney Spears – Shar Jackson
Britney Spears is another celebrity that saw a man that she wanted and took him regardless of the fact that he was with someone else. In this case, it turned out to be one of her backup dancers. Kevin Federline was part of Britney’s tour in 2004, and he started an affair with Britney even though he was with Shar Jackson, who starred in the show Moesha. Britney was relentless when it came to claiming Kevin as her own. Shar and Kevin had a family together which included a child, not to mention the fact that Shar was pregnant with their second child when she found out about the affair. Shar had no problem speaking her mind about what she thought of Britney and the fact that she stole her man out from under her. She stated that it “wasn’t like just breaking up a relationship. It was like breaking up a family.” Kevin and Britney got married and had a couple of children, but they too eventually broke up in 2006.
2. Paris Hilton – Sophia Bush
Paris Hilton is no stranger to scandal, and she’s been in and out of the gossip columns for years. She is one female that has no problem feeling entitled to anything she wants in life. It might be due to the fact that she’s been given everything she’s wanted her entire life. If you were a fan of One Tree Hill, you probably know that two of the main characters, Sophia Bush and Chad Michael Murray dated for two years and eventually got married in real life. Their marriage only lasted a sad five months, however, when Chad went to work on the movie House of Wax and he met Paris Hilton, and the two started hooking up. Sophia Bush was crushed over the affair and stated in an interview: “It devastates me now that I have been reduced to a Hollywood statistic, another joke marriage. I never expected to be married more than once…because I knew what I was getting into and will always believe in love.”
1. Amber Heard – Vanessa Paradis
Johnny Depp is probably having some serious regrets about getting involved with Amber Heard at this point considering the very public and embarrassing divorce he just went through. Prior to Amber, Johnny had been in a long-term relationship with Vanessa Paradis for a whopping fourteen years. The too had been long time lovers who shared children together. When they were in public, they always seemed so in love and in tune with one another. During the filming of Rum Diary in 2009, Johnny got involved with his co-star Amber at the time. Their affair broke up him and Vanessa, and he eventually married Amber. As we all know now that marriage hardly lasted any time at all and ended abruptly and horribly. It’s a great example that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. It’s sad that Johnny gave up such a long relationship for one that wasn’t worthwhile.
