There are many interesting things that happen on the set of movies. Some actor’s lives come into danger because of stunts. Others end up of falling in love and at the same time, ruining their current relationships. We have seen a lot of celebrity relationships end on bad terms because of this. So which ones crashed and burned due to a movie role? Here are 10 couples that called it quits after an on-screen affair.
1. Billy Bob Thornton and Laura Dern
Back in 1998 the two actors were engaged, but they never made it to the aisle. One reason why is because they both went off to work on different movies. But only one ended up finding someone else on set and getting married. That would be Billy Bob Thornton who was working on Pushing Tin with Angelina Jolie. During filming, the two got serious with each other which was a surprise to Dern.
“I left our home to work on a movie,” Dern told Talk magazine “and while I was away, my boyfriend got married, and I’ve never heard from him again.”
Thornton and Jolie got married in 2000, and the couple made headlines for wearing vials of each other’s blood as a necklace. They did that to keep each other closer while working far away from each other, but it didn’t work. Part of that had to do with the actor’s insecurity. “Angie,” the actor told Nightline “I felt, was definitely too good for me and at some point, if you believe somebody’s too good for you, you’re going to mess it up.”
