Ryan Phillippe And Abbie Cornish Break Up: A Hollywood Homewrecker Relationship Timeline

Ryan Phillippe and his girlfriend of more than three years, Abbie Cornish, have broken up—maybe over Phillippe’s alleged infidelities. Which shouldn’t have been too much of a surprise, since Cornish allegedly scored the actor while Phillippe was married to Reese Witherspoon. Cornish moved out while Ryan was visiting his two kids.

Honestly, considering the circumstances of their relationship, Ryan and Abbie lasted a pretty long time. How does their run compare to the rest of Hollywood’s most infamous homewrecking couples? Let’s take a look.

  • The original Brangelina, Elizabeth Taylor and Eddie Fisher, were married for six years—but it kind of overlapped with Eddie’s four-year marriage to Debbie Reynolds. She was left with two kids, including their daughter Carrie Fisher … who’s totally not still mad or anything. [Celebitchy]
  • Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been together for five years, while Brad’s relationship and subsequent marriage to Jennifer Aniston lasted for seven years. Sounds like Brangelina’s got another two years to wrap it up? [People]
  • Claire Danes and Billy Crudup stayed together for almost three years after meeting on the set of “Stage Beauty.” Meanwhile, Crudup left his 7-months-pregnant partner of eight years, Mary-Louise Parker. At least Mary-Louise enacted the ultimate revenge; i.e., being the sexiest weed dealer on TV … and maybe ever. [Whos Dated Who]
  • Mel Gibson left his wife of 28 years, Robyn, and seven kids for Russian singer Oksana Grigorieva, who gave birth to their first child this year. They’ve been together for two years and counting. Isn’t it a little weird that Mel was married for four years longer than his new girlfriend had been alive when they met? [People]
  • It was kind of a big deal to the Lifetime crowd when LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian dissolved their marriages when they fell in love on the set of “Northern Lights.” The couple has been together for 11 months so far and seem to legitimately like each other … at least until Lifetime casts them in another movie.

  • Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid’s 10-year marriage ended around the time that Russell Crowe started dating the rom-com sweetheart. But their love only lasted six months. Now Meg is free to spawn new homewrecker rumors! [Cinema.com]
  • Sienna Miller must have learned a thing or two from Jude Law, because she became the lady on the side to Balthazar Getty, who had been married to wife Rosetta for eight years. Miller and Getty only kept the candle burning for six months and Getty and his wife have gotten a divorce. [People]
