    19 Movies That Resulted In Major Celebrity Break-Ups

    These high-profile couplings couldn't survive these film shoots...

    As we all know, there's an entire business run on the backs of Hollywood power couples, from tabloid journalism to social media fan pages to branding empires with the power to touch millions.

    Yet as much as we love to see the wonderful people of show business get together, there's just as much (if not more) interest in seeing our favorite celebrity couples fall apart, whether it's from a scandal, an explosive falling out, or even a film shoot that drove the final nail in their relationship's coffin.
