18 Actors You Didn’t Know Overcame Learning Disabilities

It often seems like the stars lead carefree lives, but they’re more susceptible to human foibles than you might think. Despite the associated shame, learning disabilities are an extremely common occurrence all over the world, and Hollywood is no exception. A reported 2.4 million students have been diagnosed with some form of learning disability.

This list of A-List actors is but a handful of the stars that refused to let a learning disability keep them from realizing their dreams. Among the conditions represented here are Dyslexia (affecting reading, writing, and information processing), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (inhibiting focus and behavior control), and Dyspraxia (causing coordination and language problems).

Despite their prevalence, learning disabilities can feel insurmountable. The lack of support can cause feelings of inadequacy, and hopelessness. But it doesn’t have to be that way. With the help of organizations, tutors, and sometimes in-school resources, LD children can become thriving adults.

In fact, many of these actors credit their brain chemistry for their success. Some even refer to their diagnoses as “a gift”. Perhaps these so-called disabilities only seem that way because society, and particularly the education system, isn’t set up to deal with the brains of these special thinkers.

18 Celebrity Couples That Broke Up For Shocking Reasons

gwen-stefani-gavin-rossdale-tv-appearanceWhen it comes to the dissolution of a celebrity couple, most Hollywood types like to give the press similarly vague and diplomatic causes for their separation. “Irreconcilable Differences” is a popular catchall phrase that serves to describe the impetus for many Hollywood divorces. It can be a stand-in for all sorts of common relationship enders, such as infidelity, physical abuse, and substance issues. Sometimes, it’s as simple as their individual goals and needs changing or their lives taking different directions. But occasionally, the reasons can be a lot more complicated, and every once in a while, the inciting incidents are downright outrageous.

Some of the couples on this list experienced shocking betrayals by their partners, or succumbed to unusual addictions, taking their loved ones down with them. In other cases, they discovered they didn’t really know each other at all and were appalled to discover the truth about who they married. Sadly, children were often involved, either getting hit by the shrapnel of their parent’s explosive breakup, or occasionally even being the catalyst for the relationship’s end.

Whatever the case, buckle up and hang on to your butts as we bring you some mind-blowing revelations about 18 celebrity couples that broke up for shocking reasons!

18 Celebrity Couples You Completely Forgot About

Maybe it’s the nature of the business that causes celebrity couples to burn white hot before blinking out of existence and fading from public memory. When you’re a really, really, ridiculously good looking actor, work often requires you to lay your emotions bare to an equally beautiful co-star. It’s understandable that many stars would find themselves unable to keep their paws off of one another in real life after pretending to do so for hours at a time on the job.

At one time, these now-forgotten duos were head-over-heals, and their escapades were the talk of the town. Not every couple on this list met on set, but most have since been in a more high profile or significant relationship. At times, it can feel like high school, with the constant intermingling and swapping. But when you think about it, you have to kiss a lot of super sexy frogs before finding the true love (that you will later divorce). In some cases, even though both parties were equally successful at the time of their union, only one of them has sustained their grade, or graduated to the A-List. In other cases, they remained equally famous, but had other celebrity waters to traverse.

Whatever the case, take a trip down memory lane with these 18 Celebrity Couples You Completely Forgot About.
