These days, we know everything there is to know about our favorite stars' love lives -- but that has not always been the case! Once upon a time, certain celebs -- like Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Garner, Johnny Depp, and Eva Longoria -- managed to fly under the radar, and their romances were either so short-lived or so ancient that we have completely forgotten about them now. We are taking a look back at some of Hollywood's most surprising forgotten marriages


Angelina Jolie & Johnny Miller

Did you remember Angelina Jolie's first marriage to Jonny Lee Miller? The duo met on the set of 1995's "Hackers" and tied the knot in 1996 when she was just 21 years old. They divorced in 1999, and she went on to have headline-making marriages to Billy Bob Thornton and Brad Pitt, though she's now single.

Helen Hunt & Hank Azaria

Helen Hunt and Hank Azaria wed back in 1999 after a five-year romance, but they separated after just a year of marriage and were divorced by December 2000. Helen never remarried but Hank wed Katie Wright in 2007.

Bradley Cooper & Jennifer Esposito

Before he was an A-list star, Bradley Cooper was just that lame guy from "Wedding Crashers." In 2006, he secretly tied the knot with his girlfriend of one year, "Spin City" actress Jennifer Esposito. But it was a short-lived marriage: They split after just four months. Bradley eventually moved on with A-list actresses Renee Zellweger and Zoe Saldana before having a baby with model Irina Shayk, whom he later split from. Jennifer went on to marry again, tying the knot with model Louis Dowler in 2014 before divorcing him in 2016.

Jeff Goldblum & Geena Davis

Here's a surprising pair -- Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis! This forgotten couple met on the set of their film "Transylvania" and went on to star opposite each other in "The Fly" and "Earth Girls Are Easy." If you forgot their union, it might be because it lasted less than three years. They wed in Las Vegas in 1987 but split by 1990. Jeff went on to wed Emilie Lingston, a former Olympic gymnast, in 2014 and went on to have two children. Geena wed plastic surgeon Reza Jarrahy in 2001, welcomed three children with him and divorced him in 2018 -- though she contended they were never legally married, amounting to a nasty split.

Julia Roberts and Lyle Lovett

Julia Roberts and Lyle Lovett wed on June 27, 1993, shortly after meeting on the set of "The Player." But their marriage never played out in full: They divorced in March 1995, less than two years after tying the knot. Julia's now married to Danny Moder, while Lyle never remarried.

Jennifer Garner & Scott Foley

When Jennifer Garner won the role of Scott Foley's former flame on "Felicity," she also won the role of his girlfriend in real life. The duo dated for two years before tying the knot on Oct. 19, 2000. They called it quits in April 2003 and she went on to marry and divorce Ben Affleck while Scott exchanged vows with Marika Dominczyk.
