Kate Winslet On Her Divorce

Kate Is A Hero
Kate Winslet rescues woman from fire. Read More »

“There’s a scene where Mildred and Bert are divorced and they sit down together, because they’ve got to settle on a cause. The first stage of my divorce with Sam came through on the very day that we were shooting. So that scene is nothing to do with acting … As a woman, especially when you have children, one gets so good at soldiering on – almost too good. Because you know what it’s like – as soon as you open that can of worms, it’s so f***ing big, you wish you’d never taken the goddamn lid off. I’ve had to remind myself to have those moments of being able to have a f***ing good cry, but it did take someone putting their hand on me – a gay male friend, actually, who put his hand on my shoulder and said: ‘It’s OK, you can cry about this, and maybe you should.’”

Kate Winslet opens up to Harper’s Bazaar UK about her divorce from director Sam Mendes last year and how life was very much imitating art as she was filming “Mildred Pierce” for HBO. On a side note, who knew Kate dropped so many f-bombs? [ONTD]

A Divorce Ring?

From the land of trends we hope won’t catch on, we bring you the latest piece of bling bling from jeweler Spritzer and Furman. What is this, you ask? Well, it’s a divorce ring and it will cost you a cool $3200 to wear this golden heart, which has been symbolically broken by a wedge of diamonds. I’ve been hearing about divorce parties for years and have mixed feelings about the concept—on the one hand, I like the idea of someone going through a divorce turning to their friends for support, while on the other, it seems like a strange thing to celebrate. But a ring you wear every day on your wedding ring finger to remind you of partnership that didn’t work? I just don’t know about that. Luckily I don’t have to object to this on philosophical grounds. Because, man, is that thing ugly as sin. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: I’m Divorced, Get Over It

This month marks the six-year anniversary of my divorce. A lot has changed since then. I’ve lived on my own (no parents, roommates, boyfriend, or husband). I dated again for the first time in a long time (how long? there was no internet the last time I dated). I changed jobs, got another degree, changed careers, moved across the country. Fell in love again.

I’m happy, extremely so. So why do people still act sorry for me when they hear I’m no longer married and the reason why? Keep reading »

Marc Anthony Erases The J.Lo Stain, Metaphorically And Literally

We were surprised when Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony announced their split on July 15th. We were almost equally surprised when we learned that Marc had a “Jennifer” tattoo on his wrist. Not that it’s such a crazy thing to do, if tattoos are your thing, but we just never noticed the ink. And now we never will. Anthony had covered it up — and quickly, too. The pictures of his new cover-up tattoo are a bit fuzzy and partially obscured by his sleeve, but you can definitely make out that it does not say “Jennifer” anymore. It kind of makes us wonder if things were as amicable as their PR people would like us to believe. We understand wanting to get your ex’s name removed from your body, but within two weeks?

Ryan Reynolds “Came Down With A Slight Case Of Divorce”

“The following month, it snowballed. My hotel room flooded, my dog got sick, I came down with a slight case of divorce, and I broke my pinky finger. I was begging to get out of Atlanta at that point. No offense to Atlanta—it’s a fantastic place—but it really wants my blood.”

Ryan Reynolds talks to Jay Leno about his terrible luck filming “The Change Up” in Atlanta, Georgia. A slight case of divorce? That reminds me of a substitute teacher I had in the fourth grade who referred to the Civil War as “The Unpleasantness Between The States.” Yes, that really happened.

Jennifer Lopez Says She Loved Herself Enough To Leave Marc Anthony

“Sometimes we don’t realize that we are compromising ourselves. To understand that a person is not good for you, or that that person is not treating you in the right way, or that he is not doing the right thing for himself—if I stay, then I am not doing the right thing for me. I love myself enough to walk away from that now … I will always respect Marc as a singer and performer. We work great together, and he was always very supportive. Together we could make magic—and we did. He will always hold a special place in my heart as the father of my children.”

Jennifer Lopez grants Vanity Fair her first interview since splitting with Marc Anthony, and sort-of-kind-of explains what stopped working for her. In the article, she also opens up about her breakup with Ben Affleck. And Diddy. And her first two husbands. But she swears she isn’t getting skeptical about love. More on that, after the jump.

Olivia Wilde Says Her Divorce Has Made Her A Better Actress

“The trauma of the whole thing has been humbling, and for the first time, I’m a little bit wobbly … It makes you a more empathetic person, and I think it’s made me a better actress. Weakness is something we don’t like to admit we have. We hold it against people, until we experience it, and then we feel more compassion for it … ["House" creator David Shore] said ‘You should get divorced every year; your acting’s never been better!’”

—Olivia Wilde talks at length about her divorce in the new issue of Marie Claire and says that while she and ex Tao Ruspoli are on great terms, their breakup has been rough on her. But it she sounds like she has good perspective on things and has been able to make lemonade out of these lemons. And that’s pretty cool. [Marie Claire] Keep reading »

You Are Cordially Invited To Jack White And Karen Elson’s Divorce Party

“We remain dear and trusted friends and co-parents to our wonderful children Scarlett and Henry Lee. We feel so fortunate for the time we have shared and the time we will continue to spend both separately and together watching our children grow. In honor of that time shared, we are throwing a divorce party. An evening together in Nashville to re-affirm our friendship and celebrate the past and future with close friends and family.”

— I will never understand why celeb couples feel obligated to release public statements about their breakups. At least Karen Elson and Jack White are (amicably?) going out with a bang. Does a couple get to register for a divorce party, too? [Pitchfork] Keep reading »

Betty White Gave Up After Two Divorces, But The Third Time Was The Charm

“I’ve had two bad marriages, and I don’t like to think of them as good mistakes. They were traumatizing to go through. You really feel like a failure when your marriage doesn’t work. But they did make me appreciate it when the perfect one came along… [Allen Ludden] was enthusiastic about everything. He was intellectually wonderful. He was silly. He was romantic. He knew how to court a lady. Eventually, he wouldn’t even say hello—he’d say, ‘Will you marry me?’ And I’d say, ‘No way!’ He was hosting the game show ‘Password’ in New York and I was living in California, and I said, ‘No way will I get married again.’ I kept saying no for a year… Even long after we were married, he’d call me up during the day and ask me out on a date. He’d barbecue a chicken. We’d have a glass of wine, put on a stack of records, and dance.”

Betty White writes in Newsweek that she felt like a “failure” after getting divorced twice and had vowed never to do it again. Apparently, with her first husband she moved to a small town in Ohio where she was responsible for killing the chickens. Her second marriage broke down because he wanted her to stop working. Betty is proof positive that you always get another chance at love. [The Daily Beast] Keep reading »
