Actor and director Bradley Cooper and “NCIS” star Jennifer Esposito were married in the south of France in 2006, and Jennifer filed for divorce only four months later. They had dated for a year before getting engaged and got married two months later.
Jennifer released a tell-all book titled “Jennifer’s Way” in which she had a few choice words for her ex. She stated that she didn’t find Cooper to be very attractive, but that he was funny, cocky, arrogant, and fun to be around. She also called him a “master manipulator”, which made headlines in all the tabloids. Yikes!
A Bad Attempt at Humor
Movie star Dennis Hopper has one of the strangest short marriage stories in the history of Hollywood. In the early ’70s, Dennis was living the hippie lifestyle in a compound in Taos. Singer Michelle Phillips of the Mamas and Papas came for a visit, and the two decided to get hitched then and there.
When Dennis woke up the next morning the drug haze had worn off and he didn’t even recognize his new wife! The couple was married for eight days and when Michelle filed for divorce.
It Wasn’t Funny
Famous comedian and actor Eddie Murphy married producer Tracey Edmonds on New Year’s Day 2008, in a sunset ceremony on a private island off Bora Bora in French Polynesia. Their married bliss was short-lived as the couple called the whole thing off just two weeks later.
The honeymoon was apparently no picnic with reports of Murphy raising his voice and embarrassing his new wife in public. When the couple returned to the states, they were happy that the ceremony wasn’t legally binding and went their separate ways.
A Missed Step
Multi-talented actress, dancer, and singer, Jennifer Lopez met Cris Judd when he was working as a backup dancer in her “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” music video. Cris, a professional dancer, and choreographer, danced his way into her heart and they were married only a few months after that first meeting. The couple’s timing may have been off because J-Lo had only recently ended her engagement to rapper and music producer Sean Combs.
After only seven months the couple called it quits and filed for divorce. There are no hard feelings between them, and Jennifer has called Cris a “great guy”, and Cris, while talking to People magazine, said that Jen still “looks fantastic”, but their marriage “just didn’t work out.”
Not Mad About You
This celebrity couple was together for five years before tying the knot, but their marriage was not as long as their courtship. Hollywood power couple Helen Hunt and Hank Azaria had a simple wedding with a traditional Jewish ceremony, at their California home on July 17, 1999.
Although the couple had been together for years, it turned out that married life was not for them. After only a year of marriage, Hank moved out of their shared home. Six months later, Helen filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. The divorce was finalized on December 18, 2000, only a year and a half after the wedding.
