We never thought that this day would come…
All hopes are lost when we found that Angelina Jolie filed for divorce with Brad Pitt this morning. And here we thought that Brangelina would last forever with their rainbow United Nations family, but turns out, love was never enough! *insert broken hearts emoji*
Here are the other dream couples that have broken up in the past that have left us just as devastated:
Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin
Everybody thought that the Iron Man star and Coldplay’s front man would last forever since their marriage was super private with no tabloids after 13 years of marriage. Nope, it didn’t turn out that way. The couple announced their split early 2014 on Gwyneth’s lifestyle website Goop with inventing the term ‘conscious uncoupling’… whatever that means. The pair finalised their divorce last month this year, but still remain a good relationship with each other for their kids. Good on them!
Miranda Kerr & Orlando Bloom
One of the hottest young couples in Hollywood, you wouldn’t think this beautiful pair would go south after three years of marriage. Still remain in good terms with each other for the sake of their only son, Flynn Bloom, but Miranda has moved on by being recently engaged to co-founder and CEO of Snapchat!
Britney Spears & Justin Timberlake
This is the millennial IT couple. The power pop couple of the early millennium. The Princess and Prince of Pop. We can go on and on of how bummed we were when they announced that they’ve split up after three blissful years of being together from a rumoured cheating scandal. Remember their iconic matching denim ensemble? Truly iconic. RIP Brit + Justin.
Freida Pinto & Dev Patel
The world first discovered them when they starred as love interests in the Academy Award winning ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ ever since then the adorable couple were inseparable. But good things must come to an end when they broke up after six years together and our dreams of seeing the perfect Hollywood Indian couple is no more :(
Rachel McAdams & Ryan Gosling
The first time when we watched The Notebook, we instantly fell in love with Noah and Allie. Then after we found out, Rachel and Ryan were actually dating off screen our hopeless romantic hearts fluttered in delight! The IT couple were seen canoodling in public and who could forget their famous re-enactment of their kiss in The Notebook at the MTV Movie Awards! Sadly, the pair split after their fluctuating relationship in 2008.
Winona Ryder & Johnny Depp
If the millennials have Britney and Justin as their dream couple, then the 80’s kids have Winona and Johnny as their dream couple back in early 90’s. The two famously began dating after meeting at the New York premiere of Great Balls of Fire! in 1989 when he was 27 and she was 18. The bad boy and the good virgin girl’s relationship was so intense that Johnny decided to have a tattoo of ‘WINONA FOREVER’ but sadly, the dream team split in 1993 and called their engagement off.
Nicole Kidman & Tom Cruise
Though Tom Cruise has divorced his second wife, Katie Holmes, it seems that his first divorce with first wife Nicole Kidman had a much bigger impact since they were the ‘It’ couple of the ’90s. Nicole and Tom met while filming Days of Thunder in 1990, and got married that same year, starred opposite each other in Far and Away in 1992, and thereafter, in sexually-charged Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut in 2001, before calling it quits two years after. Maybe married couples shouldn’t star in movies together…
Heidi Klum & Seal
Many noted this couple as ‘Beauty & the Beast’ but we beg to differ, because this pair looks gorgeous together! Married in 2005 when Heidi was heavily pregnant from her ex, the couple has three children together. Seal officially adopted Heidi’s first-born while Heidi officially adopted Seal’s surname and became known as Heidi Samuel. What’s more, they even renew their vows every year! The couple seemed like what happily ever after would look like, but sadly, their divorce was finalized last year. :'(
Jennifer Aniston & Brad Pitt
Yes, we know we started this list because of Brangelina but you have to admit that Jennifer and Brad made a stunning couple too! They were the quintessential girl-next-door and hot guy couple, and when Brad guest-starred on Friends with Jennifer, we thought they were meant to be… until Brad starred in Mr & Mrs Smith with Angelina and the rest is history!
Now that Brad has lost girl-next-door Jennifer and hot vixen Angelina, we don’t know who else will be a suitable match for Brad. What do you think?
