Rita Rudner once said, "In Hollywood, a marriage is a success if it outlasts milk". Time and again, we see two stars coming together, building a bond on the grounds of love; only to later separate due to various reasons.
There have been several reasons behind such divorces. Some wanted space, some wanted more time together while some cheated on their partners. The divorces are the reality check that love is the very fundamental root of any relationship.
Though it's heartbreaking to see our favorite stars part, but everybody must get a chance to start over. We list down the most heartbreaking and high-profile divorces of Hollywood.
Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt
Undoubtedly, they were America’s hottest couple, with Aniston becoming a star with her role in TV show Friends and Pitt continuing with his glory ride in Hollywood. After being married for five years though, they filed for divorce in January 2005. It was one of the most controversial divorces that the world still has not been able to bury in the past.

The couple’s on and off relationship has been one of the most dramatic ones. Starting their romance on the sets of Cleopatra, they went through two marriages, and a lifelong friendship.
After five months of their second marriage in 1975, the couple separated, which reportedly is said to be because of Burton’s affair with a co-star.

Before Aniston and Pitt, this was the ‘it’ couple, both young and stunning Hollywood stars. Tom Cruise was a 23-year-old and Nicole a teenager when they got married. They adopted two children – Connor and Isabella – together. Nicole admitted that their relationship was a romantic one but the couple separated in 2001.
