While at the height of his “Rocky” fame, Sylvester Stallone left his first wife to marry Brigitte Nielsen, a model, and actress whom he had only known for a few months. Nielsen was only 22 when they married and recently talked about the experience with Oprah, saying, “The biggest misconception, while I was with Sylvester, was the fact that everybody thought I married him because of money. They didn’t understand that he begged me to marry. He begged me!”
However, the two couldn’t manage to make it work and got divorced just two years later. The divorce turned ugly, and Nielsen was forced to move back to Europe to find work. Since then, both she and Stallone have found love again and have been married to their latest partner for over a decade.
Burt Reynolds – Loni Anderson
Back in the 1980s, Burt Reynolds and Loni Anderson were one of the most glamorous couples in Hollywood. They dated for six years and then married in 1988 in an intimate ceremony with five media helicopters trying to get some footage. They had one son, and for a while, things seemed to be going well. However, just five years later, they filed for divorce.
The whole thing became a media circus, and it took them over two decades to finish sorting out their finances. Accusations were lobbied by both sides, and Reynolds summed things up by telling People that he shouldn’t have married an actress, saying, “That was a really dumb move on my part.” Sadly, Reynolds passed away in 2018.
Colin Firth – Livia Giuggioli
Beloved British actor Colin Firth was sitting on the steps of an old church in Columbia when he saw Livia Giuggioli walking through the crowd. He said it felt like “...a bolt to the heart.” She had never heard of him before they met that day. They married in 1997 and have been together ever since.
The couple has two sons, Luca and Matteo, and Firth has an older son named Will from his five-year relationship with actress Meg Tilly. Firth is still an in-demand actor and won an Oscar for his performance in 'The King’s Speech,' and Livia is a documentary film producer and environmental activist.
Chris Pratt – Anna Faris
Despite the fact that they grew up only 20 minutes from each other, Chris Pratt and Anna Faris only met for the first time in 2007, on the set of "Take Me Home Tonight." She was married when they met but separated shortly after, in 2008.
From that point on, Anna and Chris became inseparable. They tied the knot in 2009 and have a son together named Jack. The whole world was saddened by their split in 2018, but they are still close and have made co-parenting their priority. Pratt has since married Arnold Schwarzenegger’s daughter, Katherine, and Anna is dating Michael Barrett.
Johnny Depp – Lori Anne Allison
Johnny Depp’s love life has always been a media obsession, but his first marriage to makeup artist, Lori Anne Allison, took place in 1983, when he was just 20 and not yet famous. Allison, who was 25 then, helped Depp get his first big role in "A Nightmare on Elm Street." The marriage lasted for three years, and Depp’s next marriage, to Amber Heard, took place nearly 30 years later.
However, despite all the time that had passed and the fact that the end of their marriage was described as a catastrophe when Heard claimed that Depp was violent with her, Lori Anne spoke out. She told journalists that he was a “gentle guy” and that he never laid a hand on her and went on to say she didn’t believe the allegations.
