Culture: Apparently, winning a Best Actress Oscar ruins your marriage

  • Sandra Bullock is going through hell right now. She’s been married to Jesse James, West Coast Choppers CEO and stuntman, since 2005, but it appears her marriage is publicly falling apart. As far as Best Actress Oscar winners go, she’s not alone. Here are a few examples of the Best Actress Oscar curse:
  • Halle Less than a year after winning for “Monster’s Ball,” she divorced from singer Eric Benet, who reportedly had a sex addiction.
  • Reese The “Walk the Line” star didn’t make it past seven years marriage with her husband, Ryan Phillippe, separating months after she won her Oscar.
  • Hilary The “Million Dollar Baby” star, was married to Chad Lowe for 11 years; they divorced soon after she won. (She also won for “Boys Don’t Cry.”)
