Working together is a serious test for any couple, especially when both are actors. Being under stress all the time, with almost no sleep and specific roles that need to be performed – all this can destroy even the healthiest relationships. Actors break up like all ordinary people sometimes do, but unlike us mere mortals, they can’t just drop the movie to get away from the ex-girlfriend or ex-boyfriend. Here are a few couples whose relationships ended after working together.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt (By the Sea)
Angelina Jolie confessed that it was tough during the movie, where she and her on-and-off screen husband had to scream at each other all the time. Yet she stated that their love only grew stronger because they had to fight on screen so much. Was it true or not? We’ll probably never find out. Soon after the movie was finished Jolie filed for divorce and now the famous Brangelina is no more.
Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman (Eyes Wide Shut)
The two met on set of Days of Thunder and completely fell for each other. Back in the day Tom Cruise was still big on scientology and his new affection for the daughter of a psychologist wasn’t approved of. The first years of their marriage the couple was happy, yet it all came to an end after the filming of Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut. Many people blame the movie, others believe that the divorce has something to do with the Church of Scientology. We’ll probably never know for sure!
