Relationships in Hollywood don't often last, but when it comes to best actress winners, there may be one man to blame: Oscar. Post-Oscar scandals like Jesse James's cheating on Sandra Bullock — which broke just weeks after her golden moment — and the divorce of heartthrob couple Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe are just a few of heartbreaks that have hit Hollywood soon after the acceptance speech. Although everything happens for a reason, here are eight talented women whose love lives have been cursed by Oscar himself.
The Oscar winner, who had been married since 2003, made headlines when she announced her split from husband Sam Mendes in 2010.
Three months after winning for Erin Brockovich, Julia Roberts's relationship with Benjamin Bratt ended.
Word is that soon after Halle won in 2002 for Monster's Ball, her husband started cheating on her. Divorce came in 2005.
While Nicole and Tom were divorced by the time she won, their split came right as she started to receive critical acclaim, and Oscar buzz, for Moulin Rouge.
