The Most Memorable Breakups In Hollywood History

Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston

Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were Hollywood's hottest couple in the late '90s and early 2000's after being set up on a date by their agents in 1998, according to E!.

They were much talked about as Aniston was a TV darling on "Friends" and Pitt was just hitting his stride as a major movie star, and when they got engaged in 2000, the tabloids went crazy. 

They were married on July 29, 2000 and after their wedding they were seen everywhere together. But rumors interrupted their wedded bliss, with many reporting that Pitt wanted children while Aniston did not. 

They split after five years of marriage after Pitt reportedly had an affair with his co-star Angelina Jolie while filming "Mr. and Mrs. Smith," a rumor that spawned a million "Team Aniston" and "Team Jolie" shirts. 

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner seemed like a couple who would truly go the distance. They met in 2000 on the set of "Pearl Harbor" but fell in love on the set of "Daredevil" in 2002, Affleck told Rolling Stone. He was still with Jennifer Lopez while Garner was married to Scott Foley at the time. 

Garner split from Foley in 2003 and Affleck called off his engagement to JLo in 2004. Affleck and Garner didn't waste much time after that and appeared as a couple for the first time later that year. 

They were engaged in April 2005 and married in June while Jen was four months pregnant with their first child. They had three children together, Samuel, Violet, and Seraphina Rose, and they constantly gushed about their wonderful life together. 

But like all good things, it couldn't last. They announced their split in 2015, with many blaming Ben's alleged affair with the couple's nanny, Christine Ouzounian, which Affleck denied. 

They were frequently seen out and about together, leading many to believe that they might reconcile, but they officially filed for divorce in 2017. Affleck is now reported to be dating "SNL" producer Lindsay Shookus. 

Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling

Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling stole America's hearts playing a couple in "The Notebook," so you might be surprised to hear they hated each other when they met on the set of the film. 

Director Nick Cassavetes revealed that Gosling wanted to kick her off set because they didn't get along, but things apparently changed quickly, as the two began dating shortly after the film wrapped in 2004. 

They famously shared an epic smooch on the 2005 MTV Movie Awards stage and captured everyone's hearts. But they broke up in 2007 because they got into an epic fight, Gosling said. They briefly rekindled their flame in 2008, but split again for good. We'll always have the rain scene, I suppose.
