During the 1980s, Sylvester Stallone and Brigitte Nielsen were one relationship that was always starring at the top of the headlines. Most of the gossip around them was based on rumors, but plenty of it was based on real-life issues the couple went through.
Nielsen, a Danish actress who appeared on the UK “Big Brother Show,” and Stallone managed to preserve their marriage for less than two years, and in 1987 the two went their separate ways. Today they are both happily married — Stallone to Jennifer Flavin (third and current wife) and Nielsen to Mattia Dessì (fifth and current husband).
Drew Barrymore and Edward Norton
Everyone says I love you, and everyone loves Drew Barrymore. How could you not? She has "adorable" written all over her face. Drew Barrymore and Edward Norton starred together in "Everyone Says I Love You" but only started to date a few years later. In 1999, Barrymore escorted Norton to the Acadamy Awards, and the stars were glowing for the two.
Their relationship didn't survive the welcoming of the new millennium, and before 2000 burst into the world, the two went their separate ways. Norton's way has led him to marry his current wife, Shauna Robertson, and Barrymore's way led her to two marriages and two divorces.
Kristen Johnson and Ryan Reynolds
Between 1999 and 2000, the sun shone for Kristen Johnson and Ryan Reynolds. Back then, Reynolds was making it big on "Two Guys and a Girl," and Johnson was doing the same while starring on "3rd Rock From the Sun". For a while, these two had it going.
People are always looking for spicy or interesting relationship stories but they won't be getting them from these two, who seem to have ended things on good terms. In recent interviews, both couldn't come up with any juicy stories about their past, but Kristen did say that Reynolds was a one-of-a-kind kind of guy, just not suited for her.
Winona Ryder and Johnny Depp
The indie couple of the early 90s, Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder were the black sheep of Hollywood. Both dark-haired beauties that took on some quirky films (to say the very least), their love seemed like a match made in heaven. The two met in 1989 at the premiere of Ryder's film "Great Balls of Fire!" — the classic biopic of the late Jerry Lee Lewis.
By the time they co-starred in "Edward Scissorhands" in 1990, the world was enamored by them. Constantly overwhelmed by the press, the public pressures weighed on their relationship. Eventually, they gave in and, by 1993, decided to end it.
Heather Locklear and Tommy Lee
If you're from the 1980s', you probably remember Heather Locklear from "Dynasty". If you're from the 1990s', you are obviously a "Melrose Place" lover. Either way, Locklear was on top of the list, making her an icon of those decades. Tommy Lee was the Mötley Crüe drummer, and in 1996 they both tied the knot.
After him being unfaithful to her, they divorced in 1993, which allowed her to marry Richie Sambora, and allowed him to marry Pamela Anderson (and later Britney Furlan). It looks like Locklear has a thing for musicians, and Tommy Lee, for sure, has a thing for blondes.
