Winning the Oscars’ Best Actress award should be a good thing, but it seems like when you bring home Oscar he is the only man you can have in your life. In other words almost all of the actresses who have won the honor in the new millennium have split with the man they took with them to Academy Awards when they accepted the Award.
Here is the breakdown according to MovieLine
: Julia Roberts was the first one to experience the curse after she broke up with Benjamin Bratt just months after winning the award. Next up was Halle Berry who only lasted another year with her then husband Eric Benet. Charlize Theron went the longest with Stuart Townsend, but almost 6 years later they are no more. While Hilary Swank and Chad Lowe survived her first win, they didn’t make it another year after she won her second one. Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Philippe also didn’t make it a year after she won. Last year’s winner Kate Winslet just announced her split from Sam Mendes.
And finally less than two weeks after her win, Sandra Bullock is rumored to have moved out of the home she shared with her husband Jesse James. Earlier today In Touch magazine
reported that Jesse James cheated on Sandra Bullock while she filmed the movie that won her the Oscar. The magazine spoke with Michelle “Bombshell” McGee who claims that she had an 11 month affair with him, and she says he told her that Sandra and him had already split and that is the only reason she had sex with him. Now People
is reporting that on Monday, two days before In Touch came out, that Sandra had already left Jesse James. Speculation of their split was fueled when the London premiere of The Blind Side was cancelled after Sandra Bullock pulled out for an undisclosed reason. Now with People claiming she moved out and no denial from her people that she is still with her husband, it looks like the Oscar Best Actress has struck again.
I am really sad to see them split because whenever she accepted her SAG Award, it sounded like they were a couple truly in love and I was actually envious of their relationship. Guess you never know who is going to make it in this town. BTW it kind of makes sense now why she went to the Razzies solo and did not mention his name in her Oscar acceptance speech, maybe she knew then what we know now. So sad.
Finally there are three actresses who have not bitten by the curse, Nicole Kidman who had already split from Tom Cruise, Helen Mirren who is still married to Taylor Hackford and Marion Cotillard who is still with Guillaume Canet. You know Meryl Streep maybe it is a good thing you haven’t won the honor since 1982!
