Hollywood romances gone wrong are, eventually, made right

There was much ado about a break-up in the office today—and it wasn’t even a break-up involving my staff. The yelping, wild theorizing and celebrating was a reaction to the Ryan Reynolds/Scarlett Johansson divorce. Are you shocked? I am shocked! I don’t know why, but I usually think that these Hollywood marriages will last. Maybe it’s the hopeless romantic in me, or maybe I’ve just watched too many Meg Ryan movies…

Anyways, this break-up reminded me that even when these high-profile couples split, they usually move on to find happiness with someone else. Maybe it’s because they’re extremely good-looking, wealthy and can have their pick of partners, or maybe it’s because of something more than that. Maybe it’s because everyone deserves a second chance… at love, at happiness, at whatever.

Look at Angelina and Brad! The same problems that plague other Hollywood marriages (ego, time apart, admirers, ego, love scenes, did I mention ego?…) plague these two, even more so than usual. But they’ve been together for years and years, not married, sure, but with six kids, they might as well be. And how about Jada and Will Smith, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes (okay, we’ll see how that one goes)? These couples have made it after other relationships have gone wrong. So don’t lose faith in Hollywood love stories, everyone! When one ends, another’s just around the corner. 😉
