8 Movies That Caused The Downfall Of Real Hollywood Marriages

Hollywood is full of love stories that make people admire and sometimes feel jealous. However, some of these are way messier than we imagine. Hollywood marriages seem to have an expiration date. Many couples broke up because of the busy work schedules that make them be apart for long periods and have to work with others.
Many actors fall in love with others while making a movie. However, what happens when one or both of those co-stars got married to someone else? It occurs more often than you’d think and the results are rarely pretty. Some situations require a lot of emotional work from actors. A pair of actors playing a couple on-screen can easily fall in love with their costar even when the cameras stop rolling.
Below are 8 movies that ruined real-life marriages in Hollywood.
