They say a picture can speak a thousand words. Just by looking at someone’s body language, their gestures, or even the direction they are looking in can say a lot about the situation they are in. Or at least, that’s what we can assume. You can be one of the best actors in the world, but when the truth is right in front of you, there’s just no way you can hide it.
With that being said, Hollywood celebrities have been caught in unnerving situations with their spouses in public more times than we can count. At red carpet premieres, they look perfect and head-over-heels in love. But when the cameras aren’t looking, that’s when their true emotions come out: the arguing, the bickering, and the fights they don’t want you to see. Yet, there's always a camera there when they least expect it, catching them in the heat of the moment.
Here are 15 photos of celebs acting like jerks to their significant others. At least that's what we can say based on their body language. From fights at amusement parks to arguments at crowded restaurants, we’ve got the good, the bad, and the downright ugly. Take a look below and let us know what you think.
15 Beyonce And Jay-Z
If there’s one person you don’t want to mess with, it’s the queen herself, Beyonce. Not only will she totally humiliate you in front of other guests at a crowded hot spot, but she’ll write songs about your cheating ways and call out your supposed mistress (who we all know better as Becky with the good hair). In this photo, Beyonce looked like she wasn’t there to listen to any of Jay-Z’s excuses about where he was or what he did the other night.
Plus, you can just tell by Jay-Z’s body language that he look totally uncomfortable. And looking at Beyonce, she’s surely not done with him yet. We all know there’s a reason why she’s called Queen Bey. You don’t mess with royalty, especially if you are married to her.
14 Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt
From the outside, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt looked like the perfect Hollywood couple. Both beautiful, both talented and both very successful, they had it all: a perfect marriage and a perfect family. But it wasn’t until Angelina pulled the plug on their fairytale life back in September of 2016 did the real truth start to come out.
While there’s no doubt that every couple fights and gets into heated arguments (like the one seen her between Brad and Angelina at Legoland in Copenhagen back in 2013) it took a major blowout fight for Angie to call it quits. After an alleged altercation between Brad and the ex-couple oldest son Maddox on a flight from Paris to Minneapolis, Angelina immediately filed for divorce. After that, everything started to come out of the woodwork, including Brad’s alleged substance and alcohol abuse problems. Angie currently has full custody of their six kids.
13 Jennifer Aniston And Justin Theroux
Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are a couple that seem like they are always in their honeymoon phase. That’s because they absolutely love to vacation several times a year. But it looks like Jennifer might have had a thing or two that she wanted to get off her chest in what looks like a heated argument between her and Justin during their vacay in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
Did Justin not slather enough sunscreen on Jen’s back? Was he texting Naomi Watts behind her back again? Or worse, did he accidentally call her Rachel in front of the hotel staff? We might never know. But we do know that vacation fights are the absolute worse. Instead of relaxing under the sun, you are arguing with your significant other. In Jen’s case, she was probably accusing Justin of stealing her favorite eyeliner again.
12 Bradley Cooper And Irina Shayk
When Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk began dating, a lot of people couldn’t help but wonder: wait, what? Bradley and Irina? How did that happen? These two come from totally opposite worlds. But when you are both insanely good looking, that’s all that really matters in the celebrity world.
Yet Bradley Cooper must have said or done something to tick off the Russian-born supermodel so much so that she was left in tears during a game at the Wimbledon tournament back in 2015. Irina just couldn’t hide the fact that she was distraught and there was nothing Bradley could say or do to make her feel better. She couldn’t even watch the match! Luckily these two managed to work out their differences because the next day Irina was in much better spirits.
11 Ben Affleck And Jennifer Garner
For the longest time, no one could figure out why it took so long for Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck to call it quits. They separated back in June of 2015, yet it took two years for Jennifer to finally pull the plug on their marriage and file for divorce.
And while we might never know what went on behind closed doors for these two, one thing is for certain; Ben looked absolutely miserable each time he was spotted in public with Jen. And the worst part was that he just couldn’t hide it. Here it almost looks like Jennifer was chastising Ben. Did he forget to pick the kids from school? Sign his daughter’s reading log? Forget to take the dogs out before they left the house? Whatever the case, he looks like he wants to be anywhere but with Jen.
10 Selena Gomez And Justin Bieber
It’s without a doubt that Selena Gomez’s first love was and will always be Justin Bieber. Call it puppy love, but these two were definitely meant to be with one another. Yet, one bad decision led to another and before you knew it, our generation’s Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton were done.
Selena made headlines in 2016 when she openly criticized her ex on Instagram after he defended his then-girlfriend Sofia Richie from online trolls. One thing led to another and before you know it, Selena was left in tears. She might be dealing with a lot of health issues lately, but if there’s one thing she won’t be able to recover from, it’s her broken heart from Justin Bieber. It's no wonder she hasn't been able to pick her self up again after their break up. Justin could have tried to console her a little bit here, right?!
9 Johnny Depp And Amber Heard
We all know that Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s divorce turned out to be one of the nastiest ones on record when Amber pulled the plug on their 15-month marriage back in 2015. The Hollywood actress alleged that Johnny was both physically and verbally abusive during their short-lived marriage.
And while most of Hollywood was blindsided by the news, many red carpet photos show that Amber looked like she wanted to be anywhere but near her husband at the time. As a matter of fact, many pics reveal Amber either looking in the opposite direction or keeping as much distance as possible from Johnny. Seeing how disheveled and uncomfortable Johnny looks, it’s surprising that no one picked up on these two and their body language before hand.
8 Simon Cowell And Lauren Silverman
Simon Cowell is undisputedly the king of reality television competition shows. As a matter of fact, you can also call him the king of the music industry as he has a knack for discovering the best talent and making them into overnight stars.
And while there’s no doubt that Simon’s personal life has been pretty messy (his baby mama Lauren Silverman left her husband for Simon when she discovered that she was pregnant with the music mogul’s baby) it looks like Lauren doesn’t care who might be watching or listening in to their heated arguments. Simon might be lacking that X Factor when it comes to keeping his baby mama happy. We all know what kind of insults Simon likes to give onscreen. Here’s hoping he doesn’t say the same things offscreen, too.
7 Jennifer Lawrence And Nicholas Hoult
For the longest time, Jennifer Lawrence held the title as America’s Sweetheart thanks to her goofy yet sexy girl-next-door persona. The Oscar-winning actress managed to win fans with her onscreen talent and her down-to-earth approach to her career and fame.
Yet her relationship with her ex-boyfriend Nicholas Hoult came to a screeching halt when the couple was spotted having a huge hardcore fight at Comic-Con back in 2015. If that weren’t enough, things escalated to an all-time high when Jen yelled at him at an upscale restaurant later that night. Nick was visibly agitated and embarrassed by his girlfriend’s behavior. He then started yelling at her too, causing a major scene inside the restaurant before she stood up and walked out on him. The couple ended up splitting a few months later.
6 Kim Kardashian And Kanye West
There’s no doubt that being married to Kanye West sometimes feels like a full-time job. You are constantly having to take care of Kanye’s every little need, both physically and emotionally. And we know that Kanye is the kind of person who needs a whole lot of attention. Surely, Kimmy knew what she was getting into when she signed up for this.
Back in 2013, Kanye was visibly upset with the paparazzi hounding him and his then-pregnant girlfriend so much so that he bumped his head into a street pole when he wasn’t looking. You could almost see the veins pop from his forehead as he was trying to contain his anger. Kim was doing everything she could to calm him down. The last thing she needed was for him to attack the paparazzi then and there. Talk about drama!
5 Janet Jackson And Wissam Al Mana
Janet Jackson recently pulled the plug on her marriage to her soon-to-be ex-husband Wissam Al Mana earlier this year. Many fans were surprised as Janet had just welcomed the couple’s first child, a son named Eissa, a few months before their separation. Rumor has it that Janet was done with Wissam’s controlling ways and that their might have been a huge culture clash that caused trouble for them in their relationship, too.
Judging by this photo, you can tell that Wissam likes to keep his family close, but his wife even closer. While we don’t know what actually happened between Janet and Wissam, reports indicate that the couple is trying to settle their differences without any drama. But knowing Janet Jackson the way that we do, there’s a good chance that she’s got this under control.
4 Prince William And Kate Middleton
They might be the future King and Queen of England, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t get into a tiff from time to time. Prince William and Kate Middleton might look like the perfect royal couple, but some photos tell a different story about their marriage. As a matter of fact, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge often look tense while they are with each other, signalling that something might be going on behind palace doors.
After all, Kate has a lot of things to be concerned about, especially when it comes to Prince William’s behavior. He was caught drinking alcohol with topless models and making a fool out of himself at a ski resort in Switzerland earlier this year. If that weren’t enough, he once abandoned Kate and the kids to attend his ex-girlfriend’s wedding in Africa. Who wouldn’t be upset at that?
3 Gwyneth Paltrow And Chris Martin
When Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin announced their separation, it was a shock to the entire entertainment industry. These two were made for each other – a beautiful actress born into Hollywood royalty and the talented rocker from one of the biggest bands on the planet. Yet, many reports indicated that before their separation, Chris quickly grew tired of Gwyneth’s controlling ways and wanted out of their marriage as fast as possible.
Knowing how obsessed Gwyneth is with her health and appearance, there’s a strong possibility that the Hollywood actress tried to control everything that Chris did, drank, and ate. And as this photo shows, the couple also argued a lot as well (they could have been fighting over Gwyneth’s ultra organic dinner plans, as far as we know!) It wouldn’t be surprising if Chris ran to the nearest McDonalds after their divorce was settled, just to spite his ex-wife.
2 Liev Schreiber And Naomi Watts
For the longest time, Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts did look like the perfect Hollywood couple. They often enjoyed riding their bikes or simply going for family walks with their two young sons while they lived in New York City. And while things looked great from the outside, many reports indicated that Naomi couldn’t take Liev’s rumored anger issues and worse, reports of his infidelity.
That’s why many people weren’t surprised that the couple split up in 2016 after being together for nearly a decade. And while the ex-couple continue to co-parent their two children together, it looks like there might still be some bad blood between them. Naomi looked anything but pleased when Liev dropped by her New York City apartment after what looked like a very tense and awkward exchange between them.
1 Halle Berry And Oliver Martinez
For some reason, drama just loves to follow Halle Berry around everywhere she goes. Of course, that’s not to say that she’s asking for it, but it’s doubtful that the Hollywood actress has ever been in a relationship that hasn’t involved anger, outbursts, and broken cameras.
With that being said, no one is surprised that Halle’s marriage to French actor Olivier Martinez didn’t last very long. Both are rumored to be very difficult behind the scenes. Fans can only imagine what kind of fireworks went off with these two together. It’s clear that both Halle and Olivier want to be in charge of every situation they are in. You can clearly tell by this photo that Halle was standing her ground and showing Olivier that she wasn’t about to stand in the shadows for him. It’s a good thing these two broke up when they did, right?
