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.
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.
Sylvester Stallone and Brigitte Nielsen
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).
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.
Cameron Diaz and Matt Dillon
"A Kiss Before Dying," "Singles," and "There's Something About Mary" are only some of the movies Matt Dillon is recognized for. He might have been happily (or not so happily) married in the movies he starred in, but in real life, the facts are slightly different.
1995 was the year for Matt Dillon and Cameron Diaz, who was at the highlight of her career at the time. The relationship lasted for three years, and the two decided to break up in 1998. Rumors say Cameron wanted to take the next step in life together with Dillon. He, however, was nowhere near.
