The Best Actress Oscar Curse: Fact Or Fiction? (PHOTOS)

Oscar-winning actresses Sandra Bullock and Kate Winslet are currently in the news for their crumbling marriages and it has brought back talk of the rumored "Oscar Curse." It goes like this: when a female actress wins an Oscar, her marriage or relationship will fall apart within the next few years. The Curse is infamous around Hollywood and is almost as feared by actresses as visible signs of premature aging.

Reasons for the splits vary: from the male significant other's jealousy (we're looking at you, Ryan Phillipe) to simply growing apart. We weren't sure if we believe that the Oscar Curse is really true, but there are a surprising number of famous Oscar-winning women whose relationships broke up in the wake of their Oscar win. Spooky.

    They are a very beautiful couple. Hopefully things will work out for them and all of the 4 children.

    Look at their body language: heads tilted away from one another is a bad sign. People do these subtle things without even realizing. I'm afraid it was in the cards and you can use this technique to analyze almost any couple. I feel terrible for her, but she is pulling away as much as he is.....she will find better.
