When you think about notable celebrity couples whose marriages went down in flames, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie come to mind. Or perhaps Katy Perry and Russell Brand. Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise? But for every celebrity marriage and subsequent divorce, there is a surprisingly long list of famous folks who tied the knot back in the day, called it quits, and moved on without us even remembering they were once husband and wife. Here are 10 surprising – and ill-conceived – marriages that come to mind. 

Will Arnett and Penelope Ann Miller

In terms of relationships, Arnett is best known for his lengthy marriage to Amy Poehler, but several years before he pursued a career in Hollywood, the talented comedic actor married Kindergarten Cop actress Penelope Ann Miller. It took them all of one month to realize maybe they weren’t meant to spend the rest of eternity together. 

Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis

Even before their marriage, it was clear that the two actors enjoyed being together. They first met on the set of the 1985 film Transylvania 6-5000 and went on to co-star in two additional movies: The Fly and Earth Girls Are Easy. They got married in Las Vegas in 1987 but had had enough by 1990. Goldblum is now married to a former Olympic gymnast 31 years his junior. Ah, the advantages of fame and wealth!

Elizabeth Moss and Fred Armisen

Armisen, a Saturday Night Live alumnus and the star of Portlandia was introduced to the two-time Primetime Emmy-winning actress through her Mad Men co-star Jon Hamm when he was hosting SNL. Even with the 16 year age gap, love was evidently in the air. Or not. They were married from 2009 to 2011, and it sounds like it wasn’t a very happy time. Fred has conceded that he was a “terrible husband” while Moss described the relationship as “traumatic.” And “awful.” Oh, and for good measure, “horrible.” 

Kim Kardashian and Damon Thomas

Back in the days when the Kardashians were living the lives of a wealthy family without the cameras tracking their every move – and before that “TMZ wet dream” marriage to Kanye West – Kim had been in a quiet marriage to music producer Damon Thomas. At four years, it wasn’t as long as her marriage to Kanye (that one lasted 7 years) but it was twice as long (and therefore twice as amazing) as her marriage to retired NBA player Kris Humphreys.
