Hollywood’s First Wives Club: The Women You Forgot Were Once Married To A-Listers

Multiple marriages are common in Hollywood. It’s not out of the ordinary for celebrities to have two, three or more spouses over the course of their lives. Many A-list celebs marry their first wives as their star power is rising. Over time, a lot of these relationships fail and the men move on, sometimes marrying women who are famous in their own right. Check out some of these women you may not remember were married to some of Hollywood’s most famous men. We’ll learn all about Robert De Niro’s recent breakup.

Oscar-nominated actor Bradley Cooper has dated several famous women, including actress Zoe Saldana and English model Suki Waterhouse. He’s also been married once, and not to his current flame. His first (very short-lived) marriage was to actress Jennifer Esposito. The couple wed in December 2006 and finalized their divorce just 11 months later.

The relationship was just not meant to be. Bradley’s second most serious relationship to date is with Russian model Irina Shayk, with whom he has a daughter, Lea. The pair has been together since 2015. Esposito married British model Louis Dowler in 2014 and filed for divorce two years later.
