What would Hollywood be without cheating scandals? It is a tale as old as time, and one we have heard over and over again our whole lives. Yet for some reason, the idea of one person cheating on another- especially if we are really invested in their relationship- is so very intriguing. It brings the stars down a notch, makes them seem more human and relatable. Plus, who can resist a little gossip?
Cheating scandals are one of the biggest things that gets stars attention these days, and there is no shortage of them. Many of the people on this quiz who have in fact not cheated have at least been accused of it by someone, somewhere. But the fact is that there are just as many loving, devoted couples in Hollywood as there are the opposite. Most of us would like to believe that our favorite stars can find real and lasting love, and most of us root for them (even though we still love to read the gossip about break-ups).
Being a famous person has its drawbacks, and one of those drawbacks is the intense scrutiny your life and relationship receives, which inevitably makes it harder to live a normal life with your spouse and family. Where marriage is hard no matter who you are, it is doubly hard for the very famous. That being said, we have plenty to work with when it comes to the cheating husbands of Hollywood. Think you know who they are? Take this quiz and put that knowledge to the test.
Tony Parker cheated on Eva Longoria.
The gorgeous Eva Longoria of Desperate Housewives fame has been married three times. Her current husband is Jose Baston, but before him were Tony Parker and Tyler Christopher. Tony Parker, her second husband, is a French professional basketball player, and when he was with Eva, the two were often hard to miss because of their very noticeable height difference of exactly one foot. They were a cute couple from 2004-2010, so what went wrong? Plenty of things could have caused their split, so did one of them cheat, or was it something else?
Channing Tatum cheated on Jenna Dewan-Tatum.
Channing Tatum and his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum are one of those fantasy couples that are successful, talented, and gorgeous to look at. They met while filming the 2006 movie Step Up. They fell in love both on screen and off, and have now been together for almost 12 years. They have one daughter together named Everly, who is four years old. Channing and Jenna were married on July 11, 2009. But has there ever been trouble in paradise? No relationship is 100% solid, 100% of the time. Channing and Jenna may still be married, but did one of them cheat?
Arnold Schwarzenegger cheated on Maria Shriver.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver were a married couple for 25 years, from 1986-2011. Together they had four children. Since the actor and the journalist split six years ago, he has been romantically linked to Heather Milligan as of 2013. Arnold and Maria were always seen as somewhat of an unlikely pair, especially given that they were on opposing sides of the nation's political parties. But 25 years is a quarter of a century, which is quite impressive, and all together they were together for 34 years.
Gavin Rossdale cheated on Gwen Stefani.
As many people know, Gwen Stefani is now dating her The Voice costar Blake Shelton. But before him, she was married to English musician Gavin Rossdale for 12 years. Together, they had three sons named Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo. "Irreconcilable differences" was cited as the reason for the divorce, but that could mean many things, not just necessarily cheating. The two met in 1995 when Gwen's band No Doubt opened for Gavin's band Bush, and the rest was history from there. They wed in 2002 after seven years of dating.
John Legend cheated on Chrissy Teigen.
Lovebirds John Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen have been in the news a lot in recent years because they became parents to a little girl named Luna Simone Stephens (John's real last name is Stephens). John and Chrissy have been together for a whole decade, which is quite impressive in Hollywood. During that time they have worked on their mutual careers (his music, and her modeling, working on a cookbook, and being a television personality). Everyone thinks they are the cutest couple, but everything is not always as it seems when it comes to love... or is it?
Marilyn Manson cheated on Dita Von Teese.
Remember when goth metal rock star Marilyn Manson was married to burlesque star Dita Von Teese? This was awhile ago now, but the two married in 2005 after five years of dating. They had two weddings- one a private ceremony at home in Los Angeles, and the other an extravagant event at a friend's castle in Ireland the next week. Sadly, she filed for divorce just a year later in December 2006. She has said getting married had been the demise of their relationship. But their divorce seemed quite abrupt, so was it because of cheating, or something else?
Jay Z cheated on Beyonce.
First thing's first with these two, and that is to congratulate them on the birth of their twin son and daughter last week. Jay Z and Beyoncé, who also have five-year-old daughter Blue Ivy together, wed in 2008, making 2017 their ninth year together as husband and wife. For some, Jay Z and Beyoncé are role models for how a husband and wife should be. That being said, no one really knows what goes on behind closed doors, so is all as perfect as it seems with this couple and their family of five? Or has cheating been an issue for them?
Sacha Baron Cohen cheated on Isla Fisher.
They are somewhat of an odd couple, to be sure, but they are also a cute couple. Controversial comedian Sacha Baron Cohen and his wife, actress Isla Fisher, have been married since 2010, and they have largely managed to stay out of the Hollywood rumor mill, at least when it comes to their relationship. But they have had their hard times too, such as the lawsuits relating to his movies like Bruno and Borat. But their love seems to be true, as Isla even converted to Judaism to be able to marry her husband. Now they have two little girls together, Olive and Elula.
Tiger Woods cheated on Elin Nordegren.
American pro golfer Tiger Woods and Swedish model Elin Nordegren are divorced now, but they were married for six years, from 2004-2010. During that time, they had two children. Their wedding was an extravagant affair, as it was in Barbados at a resort that Woods had rented out for an entire week. It costed him nearly two million dollars, and in the end he wound up divorced from Elin. She won $100 million in the divorce, and purchased a $12 million home in Florida where she now lives with her son and daughter. She and Tiger coparent well, according to her.
Hank Baskett cheated on Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett.
Former NFL player Hank Baskett and reality star Kendra Wilkinson married in 2009 and have two children together, Hank IV who is five, and Alijah, 13 months. They are no strangers to scandal, rumors, and drama, but do any of the above include cheating? And if so, it is the truth or merely more Hollywood gossip? Whether there was cheating or not, both Hank and Kendra attribute the fact that they are still married to going on the show Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars.
Ashton Kutcher cheated on Mila Kunis.
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are among everyone's favorite Hollywood couples. Even though Ashton married the much-older Demi Moore first, he ultimately wound up with his That 70's Show co-star and best friend, Mila. They began dating in 2012, and got engaged in 2014. Having married in 2015, the two have now become a family of four. Their children are daughter Wyatt, two, and son Dimitri, seven months. There is no doubt that the lovable American actor and his gorgeous Ukrainian wife are the cutest couple ever, but have either of them cheated?
Josh Duhamel cheated on Fergie.
Josh Duhamel and his wife Fergie (Stacy Ann Ferguson) met on the set of his former show Las Vegas in 2004 when her band The Black-Eyed Peas made a guest appearance. They had a two-week rule for themselves stating that despite their individual busy schedules, they would never go more than 14 days without seeing each other. They said their relationship was their number one priority, and so after three years of dating they got married in 2009. Now they have been a married couple for eight years. Has there been any cheating between these two?
Romain Dauriac cheated on Scarlett Johansson.
Romain Dauriac was Scarlett Johansson's second husband. She was married to Ryan Reynolds from 2008-2011, and then married to Frenchman Romain Dauriac from 2014 to March 2017. Together they have a child, Rose Dorothy Dauriac, who was born in 2014. Since the divorce from Dauriac is so recent, ScarJo fans everywhere want to know what went wrong. Considering that (especially when compared to many Hollywood starlets) she is a relatively private celeb, there is not much to know, although it has been confirmed that she is fighting for primary custody of little Rose.
David Arquette cheated on Courteney Cox.
Everybody loves the love story of David Arquette and Courteney Cox, which began when they met on the set of the horror movie Scream in 1996. Obviously, beginning your relationship on the set of a serial killer movie will turn out one of two ways: it will be a super cool story to tell the grandkids one day, or it will end up being somewhat of a bad omen for the marriage. In the case of David and Courteney, who are amicable and share custody of their 13-year-old daughter Coco, unfortunately it was the latter, and they have been divorced since 2013.
David Beckham cheated on Victoria Beckham.
Most women consider former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham the luckiest woman ever, because she is married to smoking hot soccer superstar David Beckham. But there is a chance that his delicious body comes with a price. Since so many women would kill to be with him, it is not unfathomable that he would have a weak moment... but has he? David and Posh Spice are still married, and have been since 1999. For 18 years they have been husband and wife, raising their three sons and one daughter together. They live between England and America.
Mel Gibson cheated on Robyn Moore.
Married for an impressive 31 years (1980-2011), Mel Gibson and Robyn Moore had seven children together. The "last straw" for their marriage, according to Robyn, was Mel's August 2006 DUI. Mel and Robyn managed to keep their marriage, separation, and divorce relatively private. But things got very public (and messy) for Mel later on when he was dating a woman named Oksana, because she was the victim of domestic abuse at his hands. Robyn defended Mel, saying he had never hurt her in their 31 years of marriage. That may be so... but did he cheat?
Ryan Reynolds cheated on Blake Lively.
Hollywood sweethearts Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively got married in 2012, just three months after becoming engaged, and just 11 months after first beginning to date. Now they have two daughters together, two-year-old James, and nine-month-old Ines. For Ryan, this is his second marriage after Scarlett Johansson, but it is Blake's first marriage, although she previously dated Leonardo DiCaprio, Ryan Gosling. Penn Badgley, and Kelly Blatz. Ryan and Blake seem to have one of the most idyllic relationships in Hollywood (or ever), but as we know, things are not always as they appear.
Will Smith cheated on Jada Pinkett-Smith.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith have been married for 19 years, since New Year's Eve 1997 when they wed in a secret ceremony. Over the years they have admitted to attending couples counseling. They have had two children together, and been very successful in their careers during this time. They originally met in 1995 when Jada was auditioning for the role of Will's girlfriend on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. There have always been rumors that the two are in an open marriage, so what does that mean in terms of cheating?
Ben Affleck cheated on Jennifer Garner.
Ben and Jen have been all over celebrity gossip circuits in recent years due to the fact that they were getting a divorce after more than 10 years of marriage and three children. But they are still married, and have been since 2005 when they wed in a private ceremony in Turks and Caicos. They announced their divorce in 2015, then there was a lot of back and forth over whether they would actually go through with it, and although they are still legally married, in April of this year they filed legal documents seeking joint legal and physical custody of Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel.
Ethan Hawke cheated on Uma Thurman
They are not the biggest names in Hollywood these days, but there was a time when Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman were everywhere on the big screen. Their careers are by no means over (both have several works in progress), but their days as husband and wife definitely are. They were together for eight years from 1998-2004, six of which they were married. Together, they had two children. Interestingly, Uma was seven months pregnant with their first child when they got married, and before that she had twice turned down proposals from Ethan, whom she co-starred with in the movie Gattaca.
Jesse James cheated on Sandra Bullock.
Sadly for beloved actress Sandra Bullock, her divorce from Jesse James in 2010 was very public. They had only been married for less than five years. Luckily, she came out looking graceful as always, and he came out of it looking kind of like a jerk. That is not to say that he cheated, but something definitely went down, cheating or otherwise. Sandra has dated some pretty big names both before and after Jesse, such as Ryan Gosling, Hugh Grant, Matthew McConaughey, Keanu Reeves, Tate Donovan, and several other Hollywood hunks. Looks like she would have been better off with one of them.
Kanye West cheated on Kim Kardashian.
Nothing would surprise us to hear about Kimye or any of their brood, especially when it comes to scandal of any kind like cheating, drugs, plastic surgery, etc. They are just a melodramatic family. When Kanye entered the Kardashian clan as Kim's husband in 2014 after one year of dating, his antics only upped their level of drama. Now the two lovebirds have a young son and daughter with questionable names, and a whole lot of rumors and controversy surrounding them at all times. Is cheating one of them?
Justin Theroux cheated on Jennifer Aniston.
Jennifer Aniston thought she had found her "happily ever after" when she married Brad Pitt in 2000, and by all rights, they were America's sweethearts. But Brad had to go and mess things up by falling for his Mr. and Mrs. Smith co-star Angelina Jolie, leaving poor Jen single yet again. But finally, she found Justin Theroux, and the two dated for a year, became engaged, and married three years later in 2015. Going on their second wedding anniversary, rumors are always flying about the state of their relationship (especially now that Brad is single again).
Brad Pitt cheated on Angelina Jolie.
We know the way that Brangelina fell in love with Angelina was kind of shady since he was still married to Jennifer Aniston at the time, but that does not mean his shady ways are still a part of his life (or are they)? After divorcing Jen in 2005 after five years of marriage because he fell in love with Angelina, Brad began a long relationship with Angelina that would last nearly 12 years. Although neither felt the need to marry, they eventually did marry after nine and a half years together, and six children. But they divorced last September.
Joe Manganiello cheated on Sofia Vergara.
As with many of the wives on this quiz, there are a great many men out there who would die to date or marry Sofia Vergara, the Latina sex symbol. She chose actor Joe Manganiello to be her husband, though, so hopefully he realizes what he has and keeps it in his pants. Joe and Sofia, who is from Colombia and became famous on her hit show Modern Family, got married in 2015 after just over a year and a half of being together. Hey, when ya know, ya know, right?
