Divorce rates continue to skyrocket around the world. While couples take vows to spend the rest of their lives together, some of these vows are broken and marriages fall apart. Certainly, the marriages of Hollywood celebrities are not as perfect as what is depicted in the happily ever after movies. In fact, divorces are quite prevalent in Hollywood. Many of the Hollywood celebrities, while successful in their careers, continue to fail miserably in their marriages. Here are five celebrities in Hollywood that have been divorced several times.
1. Billy Bob Thornton
Billy Bob Thornton is an American producer, director, writer, singer and actor. He has acted in a number of movies including The Man Wasn’t There, Armageddon; Monster’s Ball and Alana. An Academy Award; Golden Globe Award, Edgar Poe Allen Award and the Independent Spirit Award are just a few honors that Thornton has received. Just as his career has been in the spotlight, so has his personal life. Thornton has been married on six occasions. He divorced his fifth wife, actress Angelina Jolie in 2003. He married Connie Angland, a special effects artist, in 2014.
2. Martin Scorsese
Martin Scorsese is an American film director, screenwriter, producer and actor. For his outstanding work, he has received numerous accolades such as an Academy Award, a Grammy Award, three Primetime Emmy Awards and three Golden Globe Awards, to name a few. While he was successful in his career, the same cannot be said regarding his marriages. Scorsese has been divorced on four occasions. At present, he is married to Helen Schermehorn Morris. Hopefully for Scorese, the fifth time’s a charm.
3. Liza Minelli
