Make ‘Em Eat Their Heart Out: Stars Who Were Back And Better After Divorce

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

Going through a divorce can take anyone through an emotional tailspin, but just imagine dealing with heartbreak when you’re a public figure. And while people have every right to lie low and deal with what is happening in their personal lives, some people are able to bounce back better and faster than many may expect — at least on the outside.

#bradpitt So frail, so sad, so handsome, so beaten down. Poor Brad. #mattdamon should share some of his food with him. #goldenglobes I’ll get #stoned in your honor Brad.

Just look at Brad Pitt. The actor was reportedly blindsided when Angelina Jolie filed for divorce last September following a midair clash between Pitt and the couple’s oldest child, 15-year-old Maddox. The divorce proceedings have played out publicly, so it makes sense that you haven’t seen either party out very much since. But a svelte Pitt had everyone talking when he appeared at the Golden Globes last night proving what a good haircut and well-placed facial hair can do. Everyone’s been buzzing since and many women say he’s looking pretty hot.

He’s not the first star to bounce back from a surprising split in a big way. Check out 9 stars after divorce who came back looking better than ever.
