Celebrity Break-Ups That Broke Our Hearts

It’s no surprise when celebrity couples break up, but it still makes us sad. We only know them in our imaginations, after all, and their imaginary relationships are so ideal and fun for us.

What do I know about their personal trials, their level of commitment, and the stress of being in the public eye? Nothing. But I still cried when I found out about the divorce of Amy Poehler and Will Arnett. That was a sad day, my friends.

  • Courteney Cox and David Arquette 3 of 10

    These two. I thought they were going to hang in there for Coco. David Arquette and Courteney Cox maybe aren't the soulmates I thought they were?

    Married: 1999

    Divorced: 2013 (but separated since 2010) 

    Cause of divorce: They're still in love, but Courteney was tired of acting like David's mother and nagging him all the time.

    It's not like we ever thought Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy would make it, but it would have been so refreshing if they had.

    Divorced: 2013

    Cause of Divorce: Bethenny states the marriage made her feel like she was a bad person and dysfunctional.

  • Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard 6 of 10

    I mean, if she can't be with Nick in real life, I'd love to see Zooey Deschanel happily settled with a sensitive-rock-star-type like Ben Gibbard, lead singer for The Postal Service and Death Cab for Cutie. They were just too adorable.

    Married: 2009

    Divorced: 2012

    Cause of Divorce: Spending time apart made it hard for them to stay married.

  • Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz 7 of 10

    I know it's been 20 years since these lovebirds were even together. But I will always think of them as married because they are the hottest celebrity couple that has ever not made it. Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet forever!

    Married: 1987

    Divorced: 1993

    Cause of Divorce: Married too young? But the two are still good friends.

    It just would have been so cool if Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson could have made something that lasted. What are the odds! Obviously, not good odds.

    Married: 2008

    Divorced: 2011

    Cause of Divorce: Irreconcilable differences for these two.

  • Emma Thompson and Kenneth Branagh 9 of 10

    Remember when Emma Thompson and Kenneth Branagh were married? It was a wonderful time. They were classy and British. They made movies—nay, FILMS—together, and it was awesome. I wanted them to live happily ever after (together). They didn't (together, at least). It broke my heart.

    Married: 1989

    Divorced: 1995

    Cause of Divorce: It's been speculated that Branagh had an affair with Helena Bonham-Carter.

  • Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore 10 of 10

    It was weird. But it made sense. We liked it. Bruce Willis seemed pretty happy about it as well. Even though they are 15 years apart in age, everyone was on board with Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore.

    Married: 2005

    Divorced: Separated since 2012, but their divorce is still not final. 

    Cause of Divorce: Ashton's cheating pushed Demi away.
