1 Michael C. Hall & Jennifer Carpenter
Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter were co-stars on the hit series Dexter. In fact, they played siblings on the show. Then the actors started dating in real life and things started to get pretty serious between them. At one point they were even planning to run off and get married in secret. But then things got messed up, although thank goodness it wasn’t Dexter style messed up. It turned out that Hall had cheated on Carpenter with several women. That was a surefire way to end the relationship, but they still had to play siblings on Dexter. Talk about the ultimate awk-sauce. They were able to do it because hey, they’re professional actors. Still, it was a bit hard to watch for some people, and the show was just never the same after that. You can’t really be friendly with someone who cheated on you multiple times, you know?
