Staggering alimonies, custody battles, salacious scandals. Hollywood marriages are tricky, and their divorces even trickier. Apart from the latest divorce news of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, here are five other couples that are left without their fairy-tale ending.
One of this year’s Tribeca Film Festival standouts is Katie Holmes’ directorial debut All We Had, in which the former Dawson’s Creek actress directs herself as a homeless mother struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. As Rita Carmichael, Holmes’ character lives out of a car, suffers a bad streak with men, all with her teenage daughter Ruthie (Stefania Owen) in tow. Her tribulations are set against the Great Recession. Rita’s life turns for the better after landing a job in a diner and meeting Lee (Luke Wilson), a former addict.
Deadline: Stefanie Owen has joined Katie Holmes’ directorial debut, All We Had, set to play the daughter of the main character, portrayed by Holmes. Based on the novel by Annie Weatherwax, the coming of age story set during the worldwide financial crisis of 2008 concerns a single mother and her teenage daughter, who find a new home and hope for their future when they move to the small town of Grand River, Ohio.
