Woody Allen and Mia Farrow. Though they weren't married, Woody and Mia had been together for ten years and cared for several biological and adopted children. Their union was destroyed when it came out that Allen was having an affair with their adopted daugher, Soon-Yi Previn, saying "The heart wants what it wants." In the aftermath, Farrow got custody and Allen married Previn and adopted two more daughters. [People]
Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling. After watching them fall in love over and over again in "The Notebook," their union was met with joy by fans. But after two breakups, it looks like we might have to wait for dementia to set in before the couple re-unites. They still speak fondly of each other, but Ryan says that his fans weren't so pleased with him: "Women are mad at me, a girl came up to me on the street and she almost smacked me. Like, 'How could you? How could you let a girl like that go?'" [People]
Pamela Anderson and Kid Rock. OK, so they had a tumultuous relationship from the beginning, but when they finally got married in 2006, they did it at least three times! First, they got married on a boat in France, at a courthouse in Beverly Hills, then on a bar in Nashville (maybe?). The couple dated for about six years and got divorced after four months. This one was shocking just because they made a perfect little white trash couple, but now Pam's just dating a guy she met in the trailer park. [Associated Content]
Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. This one's an oldie but goody. Tom and Nicole were married for ten years and adopted two kids before divorcing in 2001. Tom says the marriage was a "passionless hell" while Nicole said, "I felt it was my job to put on a beautiful dress and be seen and not heard." It's hard to remember the '90s, but they were the power couple at the time—for them to have such awful things to say about their relationship is kind of heart-breaking! [Mirror]
Barbie and Ken. Those guys at Mattel are total jerks! In 2004, they announced that after 43 years together, Barbie and Ken were splitting up and there might be an Australian boogie boarder named Blaine to blame. The couple's business manager Russell Arons blamed "reluctance on Ken's part to make their union official," but apparently the couple parted on good terms. They had no comment. Obviously. [Life123] Seriously?! As if it isn't bad enough enough to be young these days. Why don't we tell the kids that Santa was murdered and the Easter Bunny got caught smoking crack, too?
