Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston Plus 10 Other Celebrity Couples Everyone Thought Would Last

Love hurts. No one knows that better than fans of celebrity couples who split up after years of seemingly endless happy times. Ahead, see which celebrity couples including Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston we thought would be together forever. 

Chris Pratt and Anna Faris

Chris Pratt of Jurassic World and Anna Faris were a match made in comedic heaven. Both had backgrounds in comedy (Parks and Recreation for Pratt and Just Friends for Faris) and they became one of Hollywood’s cutest couples.

Seemingly out of nowhere, they announced their split in 2017, which devastated fans. Pratt has since remarried (he and Katherine Schwarzenegger tied the knot earlier this year). Today, Pratt and Faris co-parent their 6-year-old son, Jack. 

Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe

The divorce of Reese Witherspoon, 43, and Ryan Phillippe, 44, is another celebrity split that stung when they divorced after eight years of marriage in 2007. Both Witherspoon and Phillippe have attributed age to the reason why they divorced.

They started dating in their early twenties and had two children together by the time Witherspoon turned 27. Today, Witherspoon is married to Jim Toth

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck

Actors Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck were the picture of the Hollywood couple perfection for years. They married in 2005, had three kids together, lived a seemingly great life together, and announced they were separating in 2015.

It took them three years to finalize their divorce because the couple wanted to deal with Affleck’s addiction issues before splitting up. They remain good friends today and take family vacations together. 

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan

In April of 2018, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan shocked fans when they released a statement they were ending their marriage after nine years together.

The couple welcomed a daughter named Everly in 2013 and now co-parent her side by side. As of late, Dewan has been reportedly enjoying the single life and Tatum has been dating Jessie J, who bears a striking resemblance to his ex.

They broke things off in 2008 and Gosling went on to fall for another co-star, Eva Mendes
