Oef, de pijn. Liefdesverdriet is geen kattenpis, maar troost je: deze 39 celebrities hebben ook ooit hartenzeer gehad, en dít is wat ze erover te zeggen hadden.

1. Jennifer Aniston over Brad Pitt

'There are many stages of grief. It's sad, something coming to an end. It cracks you open, in a way—cracks you open to feeling. When you try to avoid the pain, it creates greater pain. I'm a human being, having a human experience in front of the world. I wish it weren't in front of the world. I try really hard to rise above it.' (Vanity Fair)

2. Demi Moore over Ashton Kutcher

'I used to think that what scared me was the idea of being abandoned until someone said to me, 'Only children can be abandoned. Adults can't be abandoned because we have a choice. Children don't have a choice.' So I started to rethink. 'OK, it's not that. What's the underlying thread that really scares me?' I think what scares me is not having the courage to reach my full potential.' (Harper's Bazaar)

3. Sarah Hyland over Matt Prokop

'There are two quotes that I want to say. One is a Dylan Thomas poem 'Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light,' which is one of my favorite poems, it just strikes a chord in me. And also Robert Frost's 'The only way out is through'. People have to go through things in order to become the person that they are today, and that's that.' (The Meredith Vieira Show)

4. Madonna over Guy Ritchie

'What can you say? It was a challenging year. I think work saved me, and I'm very grateful that I had work to do. I may have thrown myself off a building. Life is an adjustment. It's different. My sons aren't with me right now, they're with their father, and I'm not very comfortable with the idea of my children not living together. There are pros and cons, but I feel good now.' (Rolling Stone)

5. Jessica Simpson over Nick Lachey

'It was hard to imagine I would ever walk down the aisle again. It was like a death in the family: You go through the mourning stage, then the rebellion, and then all of a sudden you have to find life by yourself. Once you do that, you feel complete—and that's the only time you can truly fall in love again, and give yourself over completely to another person.' (Glamour)

6. Vanessa Paradis over Johnny Depp

'Love is the strongest and most fragile thing we have in life. Nothing is ever for sure, but when something in love doesn't work from the beginning, it's never going to work. Don't push it.' (Harper's Bazaar)

7. Kim Kardashian over Kris Humphries

'I felt like I was on a fast roller coaster and couldn't get off when now I know I probably should have. I got caught up with the hoopla and the filming of the TV show that when I probably should have ended my relationship, I didn't know how to and didn't want to disappoint a lot of people. I'm being honest here and I hope you respect my courage because this isn't easy to go through. But I do know that I have to follow my heart. I never had the intention of hurting anybody and I accept full responsibility for my actions and decisions, and for taking everyone on this journey with me. It just didn't turn out to be the fairy tale I had so badly hoped for.' (KimKardashian.com)

8. Nicole Kidman over Tom Cruise

'I'm not sure what the future holds but I do know that I'm going to be positive and not wake up feeling desperate. As my dad said "Nic, it is what it is, it's not what it should have been, not what it could have been, it is what it is".' 

9. Uma Thurman over Ethan Hawke

'When I was first going through my separation, someone said to me, 'It will take you half as long as you were in the relationship before you'll feel better.' And I wanted to knock them out cold across the table. Because, of course, I was in agony. And the last thing I wanted to think was that I was going to stay that way for a long time. But interestingly enough, it is over four years later - we were together eight years - and I finally feel like, cool. I feel better.' (Redbook)

10. Kate Moss over Johnny Depp

'There's nobody that's ever really been able to take care of me. Johnny did for a bit. I believed what he said. Like if I said, 'What do I do?,' he'd tell me. And that's what I missed when I left. I really lost that gauge of somebody I could trust. Nightmare. Years and years of crying. Oh, the tears!' (Vanity Fair)

11. Ryan Phillippe over Reese Witherspoon

'Divorce was the darkest, saddest place I had ever been. It was a struggle—there were a good four or five months of not being able to get out of bed. It was the worst time in my life. You get through it. It's a process that's not easy, but I get less and less sad about it every day.' (W)

12. Reese Witherspoon over Ryan Phillippe

'Divorce is very humiliating and very isolating... But, by the way, if it's not painful, maybe it wasn't the right decision to marry to begin with. Those are the appropriate emotions. When people get in your face and say, 'This will pass,' you think, Are they crazy? I'm never gonna feel any better than I feel right this minute. And nothing's ever gonna make sense again. And I still have moments where I'm like, 'Nothing's ever gonna make sense again.' (ELLE)

13. Kevin Federline over Britney Spears

'It's hard enough to be in a marriage, and then have a kid, then kids, it changes everything. For me, I'd become more concerned with my children. Not that I ignored Britney, but my kids are always most important ... I mean, we were having complications. I didn't give her an ultimatum, but I was trying to work stuff out with her, and she didn't even talk to me or anything and went behind my back and filed for divorce. I was completely blindsided.' (People)

14. Jennifer Lopez over Ben Affleck

'It felt like my heart had been torn out of my chest.' (In haar memoir True Love)

15. Ben Affleck over Jennifer Lopez

'I think I just ran away. You can only handle so much. I moved for a while to this place in Georgia that I have, was able to get away, by and large, from stuff. Come up with a plan for how to do something with my life that doesn't put me in the crosshairs of this sort of thing.' (GQ)

16. Robert Pattinson over Kristen Stewart

'Shit happens, you know? It's just young people… it's normal! And honestly, who gives a shit? The hardest part was talking about it afterwards. Because when you talk about other people, it affects them in ways you can't predict.' (Esquire UK)

17. Billy Bob Thornton over Angelina Jolie

'Oh yeah, yeah, yeah. Absolutely. We've always been friends. See in the press, ladies and gentleman, sometimes if you get a divorce everyone assumes it was nasty and it's not always. It's not that I haven't had a couple of nasty ones, but this was not one of them. Angie and I are great friends, we always have been and we talk on a pretty regular basis. I blew it because I didn't think I was good enough for her. She has one way she wanted to live her life and I had another way to live mine. I was just too insecure.' (Anderson Cooper)

18. Miley Cyrus over Liam Hemsworth

'I was so scared of ever being alone, and I think, conquering that fear, this year, was actually bigger than any other transition that I had, this entire year.' (Barbara Walters)

19. Sienna Miller over Jude Law

'A huge part of my life and his life and it ended in a way that was awful. When something ends in a way like that, it's important if you can, in a way, go back and revisit it and either shut that door or create a new room. So it was a very healthy, cathartic experience.' (Esquire UK)

20. Amy Poehler over Will Arnett

'Imagine spreading everything you care about on a blanket and then tossing the whole thing up in the air. The process of divorce is about loading that blanket, throwing it up, watching it all spin, and worrying what stuff will break when it lands.'

21. Halle Berry over Gabriel Aubrey

'It's just that you realize you are not meant to go the distance with everybody. We were meant to bring this amazing little person into the world. And I think that's why we came together. And because of that, we are going to be together, forever, all three of us. And while it was not a love connection for us, he was absolutely the right person to have this child with because she is going to have an amazing father. And that was really important to me.' (Vogue)

22. Kris Jenner over Caitlyn Jenner (destijds Bruce Jenner)

'We have children together, and we have families and memories and holidays and traditions. I don't want to give that up. I don't want him to take that away from me, and I don't want to take that away from him. We work together to make sure that we're both happy. We are well-rounded human beings that are going through a tough time. You just do the best that you can.' (People)

23. Cameron Diaz over Alex Rodriguez

'When I was going through a bit of a heartbreak a little while ago, I said to a friend: wow, this really hurts! And he said to me, "That just shows you what your capacity for loving is." I would rather have my heart broken a thousand times than never to love at all. I have so much love to give — I'm not empty of love, I'm full of love.' (InStyle)

24. Katie Holmes over Tom Cruise 

'I don't want that moment in my life to define me, to be who I am. I don't want that to be what I'm known as. I was an actor before, an actor during and an actor now.' (People)

25. Katy Perry over Russell Brand

'Sometimes you can be blinded by your extreme emotions. I definitely was looking for answers during that time I wrote that song ["The Grace of God"]. And yeah, I was depressed, and it was sad, and there were thoughts, but there were never actions, thankfully.' (The Project)

26. Russell Brand over Katy Perry

'It's a difficult situation…I was really, really in love with her, but it was difficult to see each other … We were together when it was right to be together, and when it wasn't we worked it out … It was a lovely relationship…it mostly didn't work for practical reasons … We did work it out, she's happy, I'm happy.' (Howard Stern)

27. David Arquette over Courteney Cox

'In the negotiating process of a divorce, we did it with a mindful head: 'What are you cool with?' 'OK, I'm cool with that, too.' There it is. There was no hair pulling.' (Watch What Happens Live)

28. Courteney Cox over David Arquette

'We love each other. And when you love someone, you want them to be happy, even if it's not with you. You can love somebody so much, but it's not the life you should be living together. I think David and I are supposed to be the way we are now. In divorce you always have regrets. We were married for a long time, so it's not like we didn't try.' (More)

29. Rihanna

'Once you're back on your feet - if you ever make it back on your feet - that's the ultimate achievement. I remember I was in New York at the Trump Hotel and I woke up and I just knew I was over it. It was a different day. I felt different. I didn't feel lonely. I felt like I wanted to get up and be in the world. That was a great, great feeling.'

30. Taylor Swift

'There's just been this earth-shattering, not recent, but absolute crash-and-burn heartbreak, and that will turn out to be what the next album is about. The only way that I can feel better about myself — pull myself out of that awful pain of losing someone — is writing songs about it to get some sort of clarity.' (Vogue)

31. Jennifer Lawrence over Nicholas Hoult

'I wake up earlier in the morning when I have new sponges. That counter doesn't even see it coming. [My ex-boyfriend] would never wring them out. We were in the kitchen once, and I picked up the sponge, and it was soapy and wet, and I was like, 'See? These are the kinds of things that make me think we are never going to work.' (Vogue)

32. Tina Fey

'I should have known he and I weren't going to make it when for my seventeenth birthday he gave me a box of microwave popcorn and a used battery tester. You know, to test batteries before I put them in my Walkman. Like you give someone when you're in love.'

33. Debra Messing over Daniel Zelman

'I am at peace with the journey we've had. I feel like the 20 years we had together has been a huge success. And despite the fact that everything is changing, I think everyone is thriving.'

34. Marilyn Monroe

'I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.'

35. Sophia Bush over Chad Michael Murray

'We were two stupid kids who had no business being in a relationship in the first place. At the end of the day we're grownups, and I actually think it's interesting that when people split in a way that's unpleasant, they usually just go on quite literally hating each other—or the person in my situation hates the other person, whatever—but when you have to work with somebody for another half a decade, you kind of have to deal with it. Because for me, at the end of the day, my job is my priority. And so I think at the end of it, it really let me just let go of it. To all the other costars who've worked it out, more power to you.' (Watch What Happens Live)

36. Emma Stone over haar eerste break-up

'I was crawling on the floor. I remember throwing up. I remember being on the floor... I have never felt anything quite like that. It was so visceral. It's like someone has killed you and you have to live through it and watch it happen. It was awful.' (Interview)

37. Lauren Conrad

'There are those breakups that are so bad that you will need a good cry and a pint (or two) of Ben & Jerry's. Let yourself have what you need. (Note: Hanging with Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha and Miranda will help too.) Let yourself go and let yourself obsess over every little detail of the breakup and the relationship. You will need to do this for yourself. You will need to allow your mind to take it all in so that by the time you get back up on your feet, you know how you feel.' (LaurenConrad.com)

38. Eva Longoria over Tony Parker

'The truth is, I should be angry, resentful and disillusioned about relationships. But I'm not. Love did not work with that person. But it can work with another.' (Vanity Fair)

39. Usher

'Breaking up is a natural evolution when you try to figure out what you want in life. If you're with an individual who isn't moving in the same direction and at the same rate that you are, it ain't going to work.'
