Star couples that we admired 20 years ago: what became of them

Star couples that we admired 20 years ago: what became of them 1

Some are still together, others have managed to change several spouses, and are still lonely.

These stars made an unreal sensation on the red carpet: the current Instapars never dreamed of this. Beautiful, young, and madly in love – what happened to the most famous couples of the early noughties 20 years later?

Jennifer Lopez and Chris Judd

With Ben Affleck, the star began dating only 17 years ago. But in 2001, her lover (and then-husband) was Chris Judd. This couple at first made us believe that social status was not important for love – after all, Chris was a simple dancer in Jennifer’s group.

In 2001, the couple got married, but a year later divorced. Judd complained about the employment of his wife, and she hinted that he had turned into Alphonse. Be that as it may, soon Jay had an affair with Affleck, and Chris a few years later married again (and no longer a star, but an ordinary girl) and is happy in his second marriage until now.

Uma Thurman and Etan Hawke

In the early noughties, the acting couple was considered an exemplary family. They did not hide their feelings for each other, despite the fact that they were already married and had a daughter, Maya. But in the end, the career prevented Uma’s personal happiness. She was much more popular than her husband. And while Thurman went to the next shooting, Athan cheated on her with her daughter’s nanny, Ryan Shohuse.

This was followed by a divorce. Hawke eventually married the same nanny. And Uma hasn’t been married since. But one star doesn’t remain: She’s now dating 51-year-old Bloomberg Media Group CEO, Justin B. Smith.

Tom Cruise and Penelope Cruz

Many now will not remember that these stars met: Penelope has long been happily married to Javier Bardem. Cruz finally hit Scientology, but he does not forget about his personal life: he recently broke up with another beloved. But in the early noughties, this pair was considered one of the most beautiful on all red carpets. Before the wedding, to the disappointment of fans, never came: in 2004, the stars broke up, remaining friends.

Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake

In the early noughties, Justin and Britney were idols for teenagers around the world. Their relationship seemed cloudless: young, happy, famous Spears and Timberlake embodied a real dream. But in 2002, everything collapsed. What exactly happened between the celebrities, fans never found out, but there were rumors of mutual betrayal. 

It is said that it was after this separation that Britney’s life went downhill: a little more than a year later, her marriage with Jason Alexander, which lasted only 55 hours, followed, then with Kevin Federline, but after the second divorce, the star earned a nervous breakdown and came under the care of her father.

Justin after Britney for about three years dated Cameron Diaz, and then met Jessica Beale, to whom he is happily married until now.

Billy Bob Thornton and Angelina Jolie

Thornton and Jolie knew how to attract attention. Now, looking at Jolie, it’s hard to believe that they were considered one of the most outrageous couples of zero. The stars gave each other bottles of blood, made huge tattoos with each other’s names, changed underwear, and calmly admitted to reporters that they had just slept in a car on the way to the red carpet.

Angelina and Billy Bob met on the set of the film “Controlling Flights”. They were married in Las Vegas in May 2000. And in the summer of 2002, they announced a divorce. “I don’t think any of us know why we broke up. It was like going to a nightclub with friends one night and you’re standing in line and then all of a sudden there are guys with helicopters and there’s machine-gun fire and you don’t know what happened. That’s something like our breakup,” Thornton later said in an interview.

Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston

And Jolie’s future second husband, Brad Pitt, was happy with Jennifer Aniston at the time. In 2000, they became husband and wife. This wedding turned out to be one of the most luxurious ceremonies of the beginning of the zero: 50 thousand fresh flowers, fireworks, a choir of musicians. According to the most conservative estimates, the celebration cost a million dollars – space money at that time.

Gisele Bündchen and Leonardo DiCaprio

The supermodel and the famous actor met from the beginning of the zero until 2005. Fans hoped that the Brazilian beauty will be able to take the star womanizer down the aisle. But it didn’t work out. Later, in her memoirs, Giselle veiledly admitted that Leo was not ready to change his life. As a result, the model met her true love – Tom Brady, with whom she is now raising two children. DiCaprio is still single and true to himself – meets exclusively with young models. His last passion was Camila Morrone.

Victoria and David Beckham

But this couple is one of the few who went through all the obstacles. For 20 years of marriage, they were “bred” a thousand times. They have four children and a fortune of millions of dollars. But all this did not prevent them from maintaining romance, as on the first day of dating. They are still together and happy – and look as impressive as they were in the early noughties. By the way, then they were considered the most stylish couple in Hollywood.

Ryan Gosling and Sandra Bullock

These rom-committee stars had an affair in real life. After meeting on the set of the series “Murder by numbers” they began to meet. We went out together on the red carpet, publicly confessed to each other in feelings. But in 2003, they broke up, and everyone went their own way. Ryan now has two children with Eva Mendes, even though they are not married. Bullock then breaks up, then converges with his boyfriend Brian Randall.
