Relationships are hard to maintain, even for a person with minimal distractions. However, most people take pride in their ability to sustain long-lasting and healthy romantic relationships. For celebrities; however, keeping a relationship afloat is often extremely difficult. With millions of people willing to throw themselves at a moment’s notice, many celebrities are often tested on a daily basis. While, many are able to exercise self-control, others find themselves in between a rock and a hard place. Even single celebrities are often forced to make a decision about whether or not to pursue a love interest who is currently seeing someone else. Unfortunately, those who succumb to the temptation are often left picking piece of their reputation up off of the ground. Here are 10 of Hollywood’s most famous home wreckers.

Actress Sienna Miller made headlines for all the wrong reasons back in 2008 when her affair with Balthazar Getty was made public. Although Miller was subsequently dubbed a home wrecker, the affair did not actually wreck Getty’s home. During an interview in 2010, Getty stated that the affair was “It was a very challenging time for everybody involved. But I loved and missed my family too much not to make it work. Rosetta is understanding enough and spiritual enough to let us try.” This year marks 15 years of marriage for Getty and his wife, Rosetta Millington.

Evan Rachel Wood has found great success in her career over the last 20 years. The 27 year-old North Carolina native has become a fan favorite for her role in TV shows such as Once and Again and films such as The Ides of March. However, Wood’s life off-screen hasn’t been so picture perfect. In 2007, at just 19 years-old, Wood was labeled a home wrecker when she began dating dark musician Marilyn Manson. As their relationship unfolded, many cited Wood as the cause for Manson’s divorce from Dita Von Teese. Although Manson and Wood eventually got engaged, the two never married and their relationship ended in 2010. Wood has since spoken out against the allegations, stating that she is not a home wrecker.

Gabrielle Union seems like one of the sweetest women in Hollywood. Unfortunately, her reputation took a hit when news began to surface that her relationship with NBA all-star, Dwayne Wade, was the cause of his divorce from his previous wife. According to sources, Wade’s ex-wife even filed a suit against Union, stating: “Me and Dwayne at that time had talked about reconciliation, going back and forth. I was still even intimate sometimes with my then husband. So, does that constitute sleeping or having an affair with somebody’s husband?” However, both Wade and Union, who were married 2014, have defended their relationship.
