When Gwyneth Paltrow coined the phrase “consciously uncoupling,” we may have laughed, but we were also shocked by the news of her split from Chris Martin. We can’t help but idolize the picture-perfect relationships between our favorite celebrities, even if deep down we know they’re not likely to survive.
In 2017, celebrity couples have uncoupled consciously all over the place, and it’s left us all with broken hearts. We’ve gathered 15 of the most devastating celebrity breakups of 2017 and crossed our fingers that we don’t have any more to add to the list the rest of the year.
1. Chris Pratt and Anna Faris
When Chris Pratt and Anna Faris announced their split in 2017, it made us question whether love is real. Pratt took to social media to make a statement on Aug. 6, which read:
Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another.
While we’re hoping for a potential reconciliation, it’s probably best not to get our hopes up. At least we had eight years to swoon over their #relationshipgoals.
