Blast From The Past: Former Celebrity Couples

The sweetest couple- Kristen and Jake


Kristen Dunst and Jake Gyllenhaal were America’s sweethearts from 2002 to 2004. The couple was quite young, Dunst was a mere 22 and Gyllenhaal was just 23, though despite their age they shared a million dollar L.A. home and a German Shepherd named Atticus. After their breakup, Kristen said in an interview that the two didn’t stay close which many interpreted it to mean the two ended on bad terms, but we’d like to think that’s just healthy boundaries. In case you are wondering, after their split it’s Jake that kept the dog.

Sean Penn and Madonna


Sean Penn and Madonna met in February of 1985, and by August of that year, the two got married. Their relationship was a rough one though- Penn assaulted photographers while they were together and even spent 33 days in jail because of it. Madonna also filed an assault complaint against Penn that she was beaten in her Malibu home by her estranged husband, though she retracted the charges. In 2015, Madonna said the allegations were outrageous and false.
