Sexy and Divorced Celebrity Women

Scarlett Johansson
Scarlett Johansson

It's not shocking when celebrities get divorced, and by the minute it seems. At the current divorce rate, including non-celebrities, you'd think it was in style. Although I'm not trying to glamorize divorce, I am trying to make another statement. Divorce is a part of our American society and effects many lives very personally. A woman should no be ashamed of being divorced because she was strong enough to end a bad marriage.

When a friend of mine recently got divorced, I realized it can happen any time to anybody. My friend is beautiful, but has a hard time believing that fact after the end of her marriage. Realistically, a woman is left feeling undesirable and often with children in tote. I'm paying tribute to the beautiful women on this page who are divorced, desirable, and proof that even sexy women get cheated on, dumped on, and ditched. We tend to admire celebrities and their stellar looks, but they are not immune to love's challenges.

Scarlett Johansson- recently divorced Dec. 2010

#1 Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett, the woman of men's fantasies, is available again and newly divorced from People's Sexiest Man Alive 2010 winner, Ryan Reynolds. They were able to have a fairly private marriage by Hollywood's standards. Maybe because they weren't together very often in the short 2 years they were married- a typical Hollywood split. They blame distance and extended time away from each other as a culprit to their demise.

#2 Sandra Bullock

Sandra has starred in major movies beginning in the 90's, such as Speed, While You Were Sleeping, Miss Congeniality, and more recently The Proposal and The Blind Side. She is one of my favorite actresses and seems like the sexy girl next door so it was a surprise to me in 2005 when she wed infamous bad boy Jesse James. It was not a surprise, however, when she divorced him for being unfaithful in 2010. He had at least one ongoing affair just within the time span of his marriage to Sandra for 5 years.

I certainly hope she is on the right track now with an adopted baby and rumored to be dating Ryan Reynolds. Seems like we just heard his name. Oh yeah! He was just Divorced from Scarlett Johansson. What a small world Hollywood is.

Elin Nordegren
Elin Nordegren

#3 Elin (Woods) Nordegren

Elin is a former Swedish model, but probably more notable and famous for the poor girl who got the brunt of Tiger Woods' cheating antics. No Tiger didn't cheat at his golf game, as far as we know, but he cheated numerous times on Elin with girls who meant nothing, low standard, strippers. Elin immediately took action and filed divorce. Their divorce was finalized in 2010.

Tiger Woods has lost his family because he acted so out of context as a sports super star and role model and as a man with a family. Elin has been a protective mother throughout the fiasco and has custody of their two young children. Good for her for not tolerating Tiger's behavior.  

Denise Richards
Denise Richards

#4 Denise Richards

Denise is remembered most for her sexy roles in Starship Troopers, every young man's fantasy girl, and Wild Things, possibly every man or woman's fantasy. She is a bombshell beauty who had a very rocky relationship with Charlie Sheen. They were married in 2002, had 2 daughters, and were finally divorced in 2006. They briefly reconciled in between those years, but apparently Charlie's death threats to Denise, cheating, prostitutes, erratic paranoid behavior, restraining order filed by her, and his drug and alcohol abuse finally made her draw the line and go through with a divorce.

#5 Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer was married to Brad Pitt and still remains single while her ex is married to Angelina Jolie and a father to their almost dozen kids. THe divorce between them was one of Hollywood's most public. There were rumors about Jennifer becoming too successful, she didn't want kids, Brad cheated on her with Angelina or Angelina stole him away. The tabloid and magazine spread on this were exhausting. Jennifer maintained a stone face through it all and was tired of the publicity about it. She has since been in a couple of relationships, but no marriage for her.

#6 Kate Winslet

You almost wouldn't think Kate could fail at anything. The actress is the youngest person to accrue six academy award nominations and is the third person to get two Golden Globes in one year. She's a phenomenal actress starring in Titanic, which put her on the map to stardom. She's a gorgeous classic beauty with a stunning English accent, brave enough to remain at a healthy weight despite the pressures of Hollywood. She has one daughter with a director she married in 1998, but divorced in 2001. She later married in 2003, had a son with Sam Mendes (also a director), but has since announced a separation with this current bloke.

Jessica Simpson
Jessica Simpson

#7 Jessica Simpson

Jessica Simpson's marriage to Nick Lachey fell prey to the reality TV show curse in their show, Nick and Jessica. Jessica has had a similar career life as Brittney Spears, who is also divorced. Both were good country girls bred to be stars (and bleach blonds). Jessica was married to Nick in 2002 and divorced in 2005. The Dukes of Hazard Daisy Duke girl is now engaged.

Kendra Wilkinson
Kendra Wilkinson

#8 Kendra Wilkinson

Kendra Wilkinson is best known for being one of three Playboy Bunnies living in the mansion with Hugh Hefner as his girlfriend. This fiasco was a reality TV show called, "The Girls Next door". She has since one on to star in her own TV show about her life and relationship with Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Hank Bassett. The curse of reality TV couples did not pass up on these two and after the birth of their son in 2009, she has sought counsel with a divorce lawyer in 2011 and is announcing the end of their marriage.

#9 Liv Tyler

Liv Tyler has been beautiful since she was a child, starring in her father's (Steven Tyler- Aerosmith) rock videos. In 2003 she married musician Royston Langdon of the music group Spacehog and had a son in 2004. She was in an on and off again process of divorcing him for several years, but finally split in 2008. She states she does not fall in and out of easily and has certain standards against casual dating.

#10 Shania Twain

Shania, born Eilleen Edwards, is a Canadian born country pop singer who has boasted some daring and sexy outfits on stage and in music videos, but let's admit it, she has the body for it. She had one son with ex husband Robert "Mutt" Lange whom she married in 1993 and divorced in 2010. He cheated on her with her best friend- yes, the kind of stuff made for a Jerry Springer show. She is number 10 on our list because she just remarried January 1, 2011. Maybe she'll have better luck this time.

Notwithstanding the "eye candy," Interesting article. Divorce "R" Us... Sadly 50% of us experience this "process." Given the 50% who do not get a divorce, most are not "happy." It reflects life.. Life is a teeter-totter. We must learn life skills to be resilient... from the mouth of a divorced man...

Thanks Kamran.

dallas93444~ It's one of those things not taught in school- how to married, and then to be happy is a whole other issue. I'd say many married couples stay together for practical reasons, like kids and financial, more than for love and happiness. The whole ordeal still perplexes me. Thanks for the comment.

Given, "marriage" is not taught in schools (perhaps due to the shortage of qualified happily married instructors)... would you not agree the institution of marriages provides a stable environment to raise children.

"Happiness" is subjective. I have experienced the full range of life's experiences in terms of emotional and financial. I have remaind "happy" through out my life's journey.

Perhaps the key is to find the door that fits the frame (old Chinese proverb). A happy person must find a compatible "happy" person. The challenge is the dynamics of life creates uncertainities whereby the happy person now is unhappy... and cannot, or chooses not to be happy again.


I am getting old, you are getting old, "nowadays, things are not as good as the old days..." Music is terrible... The food is too spicey and etc... You are too fat, too skinny, bla, bla, bla...

As you know, happines is a state of mind that must be nurtured...

The "ordeal" of marriage has cost me millions, yet I have no fear of the social, physical, emotional, or spiritual "arrangment."

Perhaps marriage is not for everyone. Why be "perplexed?" Given this statement, I am certainly not rushing into another "marriage!" I want to make different mistakes and achieve different results! :-)

dallas93444~ marriage is a decision- to like/love each other during rough times, to be happy, and to honor the institution. You can decide to be happy or not and if you aren't, well, that's when it can get ugly, especially when one partner is negative and the other positive or have other polar opposite situations that make the marriage intolerable.

Marriage perplexes me because so many seek it out and do so much for it, but most end up unhappy- it's the strangest form of gambling known to mankind. The odds are stacked against us yet people go to great leangths to be in that situation.

Good article ahhhhh...makes me weary to get married,but no one goes into marriage expecting divorce. I will have to be 100% sure it will last before I would accept a ring. Not that anyone has offered LOL

b4murray~ marriage is a 50/50 gamble nowadays. Heck, arranged marriages have a better success rate. Do any of us know how to pick the right person? And what if that person changes throughout many years together anyway? Good luck with that. I was engaged twice, and married once, still am, but there are always ups and downs.

Naim Hasan~ thanks for stopping by.

Thanks izettl very interesting hub again (scribbling names into me little black book as I'm typing lol :P )

Please keep it updated and if Julia Roberts hits the list i may vanish for a while (don't take that wrong ill prob arrested is what i meant just trying to get to the US lol)

Unfortunately picking the rite person isn't necessarily the problem the problem is A might be the rite person for B but is B the correct person for A How many of us have been head over heals in love found are soul mates only felt complete when there with that person etc etc only to find its one sided and you being a Muppet or worse erm being taken for a mug and used because you in love and they need something (not going to define the something) then someone opens your eyes or you wake up yourself.

Marriage great institution i recommend it but don't rush it is my recommendation .. You wouldn't lend a stranger your car would you ?? so if you expecting it to last a life time isn't it worth waiting to get to know them a while ... if things are iffy before the i do's trust me saying the words cure nothing at all the real honeymoon ends when you sign on the dotted line think about it first..

(Sorry if that sounds cynical as i said i do agree with marriage but once bitten get checked out for rabies OK )

I think none of these women/nor their hubbies have read my hubs :-)

There are several kinds of poverty in this world and the worst of its kind is the feeling of being unwanted or lonely.

Thank You for the nice hub.

surlyoldcat 6 years ago

Good hub. Lots of lovely faces that would be turned up at the common guy. ;)

I disagree with one - Kendra Wilkinson. I don't know what is wrong with her face, or the fact she does that idiot reality show, but I just don't think she's that attractive, as a person or aesthetically. I'd actually rather throw a brick at her. Other than that, great and well written! :)

Chanel the Writer 6 years ago

Kendra is not divorced. She lives in L.A. while her husband lives in another state. You forgot Eva Longoria :)

izettl profile image

izettl 6 years ago from The Great Northwest Author

surlyoldcat~ thanks for the comment- Kendra is sexy because she was a playboy bunny, but otherwise I agree with you- not so hot!

emdi~ I bet celebs feel lonliest of all. Doubt they've read my hubs either so we're in the same boat. Just good ol fashioned entertainment.

Thanks for the comments: Rudolfo and Mrahsea.

Chanel the writer~ well you make a good point, I did remember Eva, but forgot to put her in my final hub here. I think I might have confused her with Kendra's situation, only sought legal counsel but not divorced and for some reason I thought Eva was in the same boat, but she is actually divorced. I'll have to put her on the next list because you know there will be more couple casualties this year. Thanks so much for reading

You have done a great job. This all totally great review. How did you find all these news? I just wonder why these beautiful celebrities were divorced. Whereas most of these women are my favorite. I wish I could meet one of them in person. Wow..... they all very beautiful indeed. But unfortunately they aren't lucky in their relationship. I wish I can fill a little of their heart. Thank for writing this. I give my vote special for you.

Blessing and hugs, Prasetio

Kimberly~ There's plenty of fish in the sea for HOllywood beauties so I guess they don't settle for anything and most of them explain that working for extended times away from each other for movies, etc is hard on the marriage.

prasetio30~ A lot of women got divorced recently and I couldn't believe how many of the beautiful ones were cheated on. You are so sweet and they aren't lucky enough to meet a true kind hearted gentleman like you. Thanks for commenting prasetio.

sure all these women were hot but-Iz,

i gotta say- that some of these gals weren't the sharpest arrows in the quiver.... so their hotness diminishes reatly-I dated a really hot girl but she was so dumb... (** how dumb was she?**) she was so dumb she would have made Kendra wilkenson or Jessica Simpson feel smart...some people you have to date just for fun.... and it especially works others you have get along with and that connection can trump everything and you can know you will marry thrm after 3 weeks granted you only tell them that once you are engaged especially if they are 9 yrs older... but what would I know about that... *snicker* *tee-hee* so how about that-hol

TH~ you make a great point. I think people need to pass an IQ test beore getting married. And how smart do you think the men are for marrying a ding bat? The guys aren't very smart either it seems. Like you said, the dumber ones are for fun, not marrying perhaps.

THanks for the comments! I know a lot of women who eventually come out of a divorce better- and sexier! Here's to looking on the positive side, I guess.

David99999 5 years ago

This is interesting. Your commentary, however, appears to be a bit biased. Remember...these are screen divas. People like them are often emotionally unstable. Also, they tend to ingest chemicals which, studies show, cause them to become even more unbalanced.

In my experience, there are always two (2) sides to a break-up/divorce. Many of the causes you mention are cliché. In other words, divorced women almost always claim that their exes cheated on them. Though...this is not always true.

I realize that you have received your information from media sources... However, remember, that celebrities (even women) often can't handle fame. They let it go to their heads, and, they - themselves - succumb to the seduction of admirers.

Keep an open mind...and, think critically!

izettl 5 years ago from The Great Northwest Author

David~ Not sure what you mean by biased. And not sure how to think critically about a piece like this. But thanks for your comment.

1. divorce can not happen without marriages. if u want to avoid divorce, avoid marriage.

2. u will never know who cheated whom, there is no evidence

3. celebrities are human beings, it doesn't matter whether they r male or female the percentage of cheating is always same
