    Isn't there a supposed curse for women who win the Best Actress Oscar to split with their signficant others within a short period of time?

    Reese Witherspoon did....Hillary Swank split with her hubby...Halle Berry...Julia Roberts...Gwyneth Paltrow and I think Helen Hunt.

    Sandra Bullock better watch out.

    I think Paltrow is still with Chris Martin.

    I thought it was just actresses who were married to actors and won the Oscar before their spouses did.

    She wasn't with him when she won. She was with Ben Affleck then wasn't she?

    I thought Hilary Swank did not split with Chad Lowe until after she won her 2nd Oscar

    Too bad. They made a nice couple. Two failed marriages for each of them too.

    Oh, yeah, probably. Wow time flies, she won in the '90s.

    Maybe she got saved from the first run of the curse because she forgot to thank him when she won that one.
    Rex and (deleted member) like this.

    That must be it! It's like tempting the skategods -- never mention any names around the Oscargods.

    Of course, Sean Penn deliberately didn't thank his wife when he won his Oscar, but he fell prey to it as well (yes I know the myth is for Best Actresses, just sayin'...)

    Wow, that's sad--especially for their son. I love Kate (but am not really a fan of Sam's movies), so I hope that this works out for them.

    Um, he won his Best Director Oscar before she won her Best Actress Oscar - didn't he win for "American Beauty"?

    While I am sad for the split, is anyone else kind of hoping that Leonardo DiCaprio now ditches the supermodels and he and Kate finally get together?

    I don't think Leo D wants to get married and he would be the stepfather to two small kids. Usually confirmed bachelors aren't too keen on that.

    Whos to say they have similar interest too.

    Was Brad really a confirmed Bachelor? He was married to Jennifer Aniston previously, and was known more for his high profile relationships than being a free-living guy. (Gwen, Juliette Lewis, etc.)

    Leo may come out of confirmed bachelorhood soon, as he isn't exactly Clooney's age, but I doubt Kate would be his woman of choice. He seems to follow in George's footsteps of being a brilliant actor, great philanthropist and big on women who look better than they think. :p

    People can change and grow up, though.

    I don't think that it will happen, to be honest, but it would definitely fulfill all of my Titanic fantasies if Leo and Kate got together in real life :)

    "Confirmed bachelor" used to be a euphenism for gay, right? In Leo and George's case, maybe "deliberately single" would be a better phrase. Unless they're actually gay. In which case they should hook up with each other and be the world's most ridiculously smoking couple.

    Yes! They need to knock Ben Affleck and Matt Damon out of that long held top spot. :lol:

    I suppose it may have been when applied to some people -- I knew a few "confirmed bachelors" who definitely were not. :shuffle: And I suppose Hugh Hefner could be gay, despite his obvious attempts to prove otherwise by his behavior the past 60 years. :lol:

    nooooooooo I love them as friends, wouldn't want them to be romantically involved.

    huge pet peeve of mine to imply that anyone who isn't interested in settling down and/or having kids isn't a grown up.

    Oooh, good point. Especially considering some "settled" folks with kids aren't always grown up. :shuffle:

    Yes, in England. It is/was much less commonly used in the US.

    no!!!! I hope that's not true. I adore Sandra Bullock (even if I think the Blind Side is a meh pile of dreck) and love that she found this total biker dude as her soulmate etc etc. If he did her wrong he's gonna have a huge bunch of bad karma coming his way :lynch:

    Good point. Sad to say but I think you have too many unfit people having kids because they think they "have to".

    Too bad about the split, especially when there are kids involved.
