The Oscar Curse

What was once Hollywood's biggest honor is now deemed a curse. Following their wins for Oscar's best actress title, these Hollywood lovelies have seen their love lives falter. Is success and jealousy to blame or is it pure coincidence?

2002: Monster Ball's Halle Berry, the first African American woman to win a best actress Oscar, divorced husband Eric Benet following reports of infidelity.

2003: Nicole Kidman may have expressionless yet ecstatic as she won the best actress Oscar for The Hours, but she was still reeling from her 2001 divorce from Tom Cruise.

2004: Charlize Theron award-winning Monster transformation was not enough to save her long-term relationship with Stuart Townsend, which fizzled in 2010.

2005: Second time best actress winner, Million Dollar Baby's Hilary Swank, divorced substance-abusing husband Chad Lowe.

2006: Southern belle on-and-off screen, Walk the Line's Reese Witherspoon divorced husband Ryan Phillippe amidst allegations of on-set cheating with co-star Abbie Cornish.

2009: Kate Winslet finally won the Academy's accolades for The Reader, but it was not enough to keep husband Sam Mendes by her side.

2010: America's sweetheart Sandra Bullock was ever so gracious as she accepted her best actress Oscar, but her sweetness seems to run motorcross hubby Jesse James right into the arms of a tattooed mistress.
