20 Stars Who Married The Same Person Twice

marshall-kim-mathers-robert-wagner-natalie-wood-rodney-dangerfieldThese days, marriage is a fragile institution. Hollywood stars know this better than anyone. But every once in a while, a famously separated couple will decide to give their love another go. Maybe they were too young the first time. Sometimes, one (or both) of them cheated or had a substance abuse problem. Maybe it just wasn’t the right time.

Multiple marriages are not at all uncommon in Hollywood. The stars on this list have all been married more than once – and at least two of those marriages were to the same person. For some, they realized their mistake after a short time apart and quickly reconciled. Some of those couples even managed to stay together for the long haul. For others, it was the second marriage that was the mistake.

In a couple of cases, these celebrities re-married more than one former spouse. A few of these stars have so many marriages on their resume that it practically became a hobby. It’s quite possible that a few of these crazy kids will never quit each other. Who knows? They might even take the plunge a third time!

Here are 20 Stars Who Married The Same Person Twice.

15 Stars Who Were Unfaithful To Their Pregnant Wives

Infidelity is always painful for the betrayed. But when there’s a baby on the way, it makes the sting that much worse. It’s cheating for two!

Unfortunately, it is not at all uncommon for husbands to stray from their pregnant partners – and not just in Hollywood. According to psychologist Robert Rodriguez, 10% of fathers-to-be cheat on their baby mamas.

What would drive a man to commit such egregious treachery? Some men blame their adultery on a feeling of being usurped by the baby. Others say they were looking for an escape from the stress of impending fatherhood. A few men admit they felt repulsed by their partner’s changing physique or were turned off by the idea of their baby being “involved” in their intimacy. Occasionally, the pregnancy was poorly timed, as the relationship was already as good as over.

Ashley Madison founder Noel Biderman posits that in many cases, it’s simply a matter of the pregnancy having led to “a period of abstinence” for the couple. Then there are those men that are going to cheat no matter the circumstances. Their wife’s pregnancy is incidental.

Whatever their reasons, none of the celebrities on this list are going to win Husband of the Year.

17 Stars You Had No Idea Were Blackmailed

celebrities-blackmailed
Renowned celebrity publicist Michael Levin has said that he doesn’t “know any celebrity in America that isn’t shaken down for money, blackmailed, extorted.” Blackmail can happen to anyone, but Hollywood stars and celebrities are especially ripe for the picking because their lucrative careers depend on the purity of their image. Plus all that money!

If a celebrity has a skeleton or two in their closet, they will sometimes acquiesce to outrageous demands to keep the door closed.

If it works in the extortionists’ favor, chances are the general public will never even hear about it. On the other hand, Richard Hilton imparted some excellent advice to his daughter, Paris, in regard to the practice: “As soon as you pay somebody, then you’re gonna be paying for the rest of your life. My dad always taught me. They’ll keep the tape anyway.”

Many of the stars on this list were hiding something truly shameful. It couldn’t have been easy for those who chose to come clean to the public rather than give in to the blackmailer’s demands. In some cases, the blackmailers wanted revenge. Most just wanted to get paid.

Film Review: Clara’s Ghost

All that most moms* really want is to feel appreciated. Of course, everyone has a different metric for what that entails. But for the most part, it doesn’t mean gifts or grand gestures. It definitely doesn’t mean homemade coupons for foot massages. Just a simple “thank you” every once in a while, would suffice. They want someone to notice (and care) that they did your laundry or stayed up late cleaning the kitchen. After all, “Somebody has to do it.” But being a mom is practically the denotation of a “thankless job”. And when someone spends 20–odd years getting shit done for their family, the lack of appreciation can take its toll. That’s what happens to the titular matriarch in Bridey Elliott’s wonderful debut, a gothic black comedy called Clara’s Ghost.

16 Stars Who Refused To Take Photos With Fans

ian-somerhalder-jennifer-lawrenceWhile there’s truth to the notion that fans make the stars, celebrities are still human beings. They don’t deserve to be treated like a commodity. We may feel that we know them, but they don’t know us.

There are a few stars who are more than happy to accommodate fans. Actors like Elijah Wood, Tom Hanks, and Cole Sprouse have even turned the celebrity photo into an art form. But there are others who just aren’t that into it.

It doesn’t matter how much money we’ve contributed to their box office earnings. Stars don’t owe us anything. Most have perfectly reasonable explanations for refusing a photo. Some just want a day to themselves or with their family. Maybe it’s just not a good time.

More accommodating celebrities have even offered an alternative interaction like a handshake, a hug, or a Q&A session, but they say that people rarely take them up on it. For this reason, several celebrities have pointed out the distinction between true fans and people who just want the bragging rights of having a photo with anyone famous.

If the stars are just like us, they deserve human decency.

Here are 16 Stars Who Refused To Take Photos With Fans.

18 Actors Who Left Their Normal Spouses When They Got Famous

It’s not always the star that pays the price of fame. Sometimes, when an actor climbs the ladder of success, they have to leave their old lives on the ground. Unfortunately, that can include their non-celebrity spouses. After all, aren’t actors always saying that only other actors can truly understand the lifestyle?

Of course, starter marriages aren’t just for the rich and famous. In this day and age, it’s not at all uncommon for couples in any profession to get divorced. It’s especially prevalent among couples who married young. Not that normalcy makes it any easier on the people who get left behind. It can be harder still if there are children involved.

The celebrities on this list had a variety of reasons for leaving their first loves. At times, they were seduced by the glamor of fame and wanted a shiny new spouse to match. A few felt they could no longer relate to someone who wasn’t in showbiz. Others simply fell in love with their co-stars. But one thing they all have in common is that their divorce just happened to coincide with their success.

15 Child Stars Who Lost Their Jobs For Growing Up Too Fast

soliel-moon-frye-malcolm-david-kelley-shirley-temple
Hollywood is a tough place to grow up – especially when you consider that the commodity child actors are selling is really childhood itself. If an actor is hired because of their ability to exude innocence, then the normal process of maturation can make it hard for them to do their job.

Frankly, producers and directors are asking a lot of children. Even with union laws in place, the hours on set can be grueling. Some roles can even take an emotional toll on the actors. When you think about it, the very concept of child actors is rather cruel. But anyone who watched the original Beverly Hills 90210 knows how the alternative of hiring adults to play kids can lend a certain insincerity to the project.

Many of the kids on this list got the boot from their jobs simply because their bodies were following the course of nature. Others were sacked because they picked up adult vices in their off time. A scant few made the personal choice to move on in order to live normal lives and salvage what remained of their childhood. In a couple of tragic cases, losing their jobs utterly destroyed their careers and even their lives.

Here are 15 Child Actors Who Lost Their Jobs For Growing Up Too Fast.
