This article is not about establishing some perplexing connections between Oscars and broken marriages, but one coincidence happens this many times, one is compelled to raise an eyebrows:
Once upon a time the inamoratas of Sam Mendes, Kate Winslet divorced him in 2010 after 7 years of marriage – soon after she won Oscar for The Reader. What tore into the fibre of their marriage isn’t exactly known.
Hillary Swank’s Oscar for her role in Million Dollar Baby upstaged her marriage with Chad Lowe, who apparently could not handle the ever-mounting fame his wife was being bestowed upon. They were together for 13 years. Phew!
One of the most suave and beguilingly beautiful star of Hollywood, Gwyneth Paltrow parted ways with Ben Affleck an year after she received the Oscar for Best Actress for her role in Shakespeare in Love
Halle Berry’s Oscar for Monster’s Ball in 2002 hit rock bottom when she found out that her husband of four years, Eric Bent was cheating on her.
Sandra Bullock won herself for best actress for her role in the movie The Blind Side. Soon after she lifted the trophy, she filed for divorce from her husband Jesse James. Unlike her role in the movie, the scheme of things surrounding their divorce was eventful as Sandra caught Jesse cheating on her.
The marriage of Julia Roberts and Benjamin Bratt was going steady when Julia Roberts grabbed herself the Best Actress Oscar for her role in Erin Brokovich in 2001. Hardly 3 months after the Oscars ceremony, the couple announced their divorce.
Call it an Oscar curse if you must, to us it seems like the marriages of few celebrities stagger under the weight of their embroidered persona.
