5 Celeb Cheaters Who Shocked Us

These are the significant others who we never thought would stray.


Tiger Woods recently blew the public's image of him as a squeaky-clean "good guy" by admitting that he's cheated on his wife Elin. While we're usually not too surprised when rich and famous men have affairs, there have been a few fellas whose unfaithfull ways we never saw coming.

1. David Letterman - The late night funnyman was never really the subject of tabloid fodder, and he was never exactly a sex symbol. So with a wife and young son at home—and a new lease on life some years after having heart surgery—we were astounded to discover that he had fooled around with a former assistant.


2. Brad Pitt - When Brad married Jennifer Anniston, it was like the celeb world equivalent of the football captain marrying the prom queen. They were America's sweethearts, so when we learned that Brad was sneaking around on Jen with his Mr. and Mrs. Smith co-star, Angelina Jolie (the "girl who smokes behind the bleachers"), our collective heart broke for our favorite Friend. And Brad found himself tossed off a lot of "sexy" lists.

3. Morgan Freeman - Perhaps the most shocking of all was the discovery that universally beloved Morgan Freeman was splitting from Myrna, his wife of 24 years, following a car crash that revealed another woman in the passenger seat. Supposedly, Morgan and Myrna had an "open marriage," which meant that Morgan was stepping out with a lot of different ladies. But the craziest discovery was his decade-long affair with his step-granddaughter, who was underrage when their relationship began.


4. Ethan Hawke - Ethan and ex-wife Uma Thurman seemed like the opposite of your typical dramatic Hollywood couple. Both were often regarded as intelligent and grounded people, so many fans expected their marriage to go the distance. However, when Uma's star began to rise and Ethan's was fizzling, things started to fall apart. Jealous of her fame, Ethan convinced himself that his wife was having an affair with Quentin Tarantino, which he used to justify his own affair.

5. Hugh Grant - No woman wanted to believe that dashing, charming Hugh was really a cad. And no woman wanted to believe that any man would step out on Elizabeth Hurley, because then what hope was left for us normal chicks?? Not only was it an arrow to our hearts to discover that he was a cheater, but we also had to deal with the news that he cheated with a prostitute.
