LONG-LASTING marriages in Hollywood are difficult to come by.
Being in the public eye means all your dirty laundry gets aired out too—which makes it hard to stay with someone after a big fight or well-known scandal.

A few Hollywood couples have famously split up, only to get back with those same partners years later.

The most recent couple who got back together after a long separation is Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor.
The two tied the knot in 2000 and went on to star in several films together, including Zoolander, Dodgeball, and Tropic Thunder.
They welcomed two children together: daughter Ella Olivia and son Quinlin Dempsey.
After 17 years of marriage, the pair separated in 2017.
In 2022, however, Stiller confirmed that they had rekindled their romance and were living together again.
“It’s been really wonderful for all of us. Unexpected, and one of the things that came out of the pandemic,” he told Esquire.
NENE LEAKES AND GREGG LEAKES

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star also experienced a post-divorce-rekindling with her late husband Gregg Leakes.
The two first got married in 1997, before NeNe was a household name.
In 2011, three years after she first appeared in Bravo’s RHOA, their divorce was finalized.
Less than two years later, however, they were engaged again.
They tied the knot for the second time in 2013, with their ceremony televised for the Bravo series.
Unfortunately, Gregg was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2018, and passed away in 2021—with his wife NeNe by his side.
ELON MUSK AND TALULAH RILEY

The business magnate married English actress Talulah Riley in 2010 after meeting her in a nightclub in London.
About a year later, the two were separated, with their divorce being finalized in 2012.
Although Musk told Forbes at the time that their divorce was the result of no longer being in love, he swallowed his words a year later.
The two got remarried for a second time in July of 2013.
Three years later, however, in November of 2016, they were once again divorced.
PAMELA ANDERSON AND RICK SALOMON

In 2007, the Baywatch star married the man best known for his 2004 sex tape with then-girlfriend Paris Hilton.
Two months after their Las Vegas wedding, Anderson and Salomon annulled their marriage.
In 2014, however, the couple tied the knot again.
That same year, Anderson filed for divorce again but soon told the judge to dismiss her petition as they were going to give it another shot.
The actress called it off for good in 2015.
EMINEM AND KIM MATHERS

The rapper and his ex-wife Kim Scott were originally high school sweethearts.
They got married young, saying ‘I do’ in 1999 after welcoming their daughter together four years earlier.
In 2001, they divorced for the first time.
In 2006, they got married again.
The second go-around would be short-lived, with Eminem filing for divorce three months after their ceremony.
MELANIE GRIFFITH AND DON JOHNSON

The Hollywood power duo first tied the knot in 1976, but quickly called it quits only six months later.
In 1982, Griffith went on to marry fellow actor Steven Bauer—a marriage that lasted until 1989.
The same year her divorce from Bauer was finalized, she remarried her first husband Don Johnson and the two welcomed their daughter Dakota.
Seven years later, in 1996, Griffith and Johnson split for good.
ELIZABETH TAYLOR AND RICHARD BURTON

The legendary actors first met on the set of their film Cleopatra in 1963, while married to other people.
An affair between the two of them began, and they got married in 1964.
After a ten-year marriage, the couple got divorced when Burton had another affair with a costar.
Shortly after, however, Taylor and Burton rekindled their love in 1975 and got remarried that October.
Less than a year later, they were divorced for a second time.
