Love hurts — even in Hollywood.

Sadly, the fairy-tale, happy endings often featured in blockbuster films don’t often hold true in real life for celebrity couples.

Whether the breakup was unexpected or long overdue, stars endure heartache just like the rest of us.

No matter which way you look at it, a broken heart’s a broken heart, right?

Take it from the queen of broken hearts: Taylor Swift, who found out about her ended romance with Joe Jonas via a 27-second phone call in 2008.

Flash forward years later, T-Swift hasn’t let relationship troubles defeat her as she found the ultimate form of therapy: outing her past loves through song.

When it comes to love triangles, no other trio comes to mind other than Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

Although their relationship was already on the rocks, Pitt and Aniston’s five-year marriage soured even further as things reportedly heated up between the actor and Jolie, his leading lady in 2005’s Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Shortly after his divorce with Aniston, Pitt and Jolie went public with their newfound romance.

From surprise divorces to amicable splits and everything in between, heart break knows no victim when it comes to Hollywood’s hottest celebs.
