Life is filled with regrets, and so are relationships. Whether it is saying a ‘yes’ too early, dating the wrong person or saying a ‘no’ to the right person, everyone has been there at one point in their life, and that does not exclude our perfect fairytale celebrities. They have had their fair share of regrets and are not afraid to talk about it.
RJ researched and compiled a list of 15 stars who have openly admitted their relationship regrets:
Kris Jenner regrets ending things with Robert Kardashian
Living life in the public eye like the Kardashian-Jenner clan can lead to a life of regret, and entrepreneurial matriarch Kris Jenner is no exception.
Kris has had some failed relationship, but of all her failed relationship, her biggest regret was her failed marriage to the father of the first four kids, Robert Kardashian.
She revealed that if she had to undo any decision, it would be divorcing Robert.
Jennifer Lopez still hurts about her divorce from Marc Anthony
Despite the norm of broken relationships in Hollywood, it’s hard sometimes to not cry over the one that got away, especially when kids are involved. Jennifer Lopez’s marriage to Marc Anthony was one of those.
Although she’s happily dating former baseball player Alex Rodriguez at the moment, the mother-of-two revealed that her divorce from the father of her kids was the biggest disappointment of her life. Fortunately, she is in a great place now.
Jay-Z laments over cheating on Beyonce
It’s no news that the power couple Jay-Z and Beyonce faced some tough times in their fairytale relationship. However, with all that drama behind, Jay-Z still feels bad about cheating on the love of his life.
“The hardest thing is seeing the pain on someone’s face that you caused, and then have to deal with yourself.”
He also explained that his infidelity stemmed from his inability to connect with his wife as a result of the trauma he suffered as a child.
Nicole Kidman wishes she gave marriage some time
A lot of people have fallen victims to the plight of marrying too early or marrying the wrong person, and one of these people is our beloved Nicole Kidman.
Although she’s happily married to her country artist husband, Keith Urban, the actress regrets her first marriage to famous actor Tom Cruise.
“You look at Taylor Swift, I mean, how old is she? She’s 26. I had two kids by the time I was 27, and I’d been married for four years. But that’s what I wanted.”
Nevertheless, she learned through it all.
Aaron Carter can’t seem to get over his first love Hilary Duff
The first love is the hardest to get over, and former teen sensation, Aaron Carter, can relate well to those words.
Aaron became famous not only for his music but for his relationship with two of the hottest women in the 2000s: Lindsay Lohan and Hilary Duff.
Surprisingly, Aaron still has a soft spot for the Lizzie McGuire star, Hilary Duff, and once tweeted:
“I’ll spend the rest of my life trying to get better myself to get back to her. I don’t care what ANY of you think. I would sweep her off her feet if I ever got the chance to again and fix what I did wrong.”
Hugh Grant regret’s one of his playboy moves
Hugh Grant is one of the biggest players in Hollywood, but it seems the star actor overdid himself on the playboy thing when he cheated on Elizabeth Hurley.
“People have given me tons of ideas for excuses on this one… I was under pressure, I was overtired, or I was lonely… But I think it would just be bollocks to hide anything like that. I did a bad thing.”
At least he admitted his fault.
Melissa Joan Hart wishes she gave Ryan Reynolds a hance
Everyone knows Ryan Reynolds is a catch, but Melissa Joan Hart didn’t realise that truth on time when they were younger.
Way before Ryan became the hottie that he is now, Melissa had the chance to date him, but she refused blatantly. Now she wonders if she should have said ‘yes’.
Success is not enough to get Amanda Seyfried over someone special
Amanda Seyfried has over the years built for herself a successful career. However, it seems she can’t seem to feel the void left by her ex, Dominic Cooper. Although Amanda is not one to dish on her personal life to the media, in 2013, she dropped some hints about herself and Dominic.
“He’ll always be in my life regardless of what his girlfriends or future wife think. I’m never going to be with a guy that can’t deal with my friendship with him.”
Ben Mckenzie wishes he was a better listener in his relationships
Actor Ben Mckenzie had regrets about not listening to his partners. He said:
“It’s a bit of a cliché, but basically I wish I’d listened more. Get over your ego a bit. Listen to a different perspective and you almost always modify your position and realize you’re probably too dogmatic, too competitive, too jealous, too frustrated. I love women for being able to knock that s— out of you.”
On the positive side, Ben made the decision to grow and learn from his mistakes. Kudos, Ben!
Calvin Harris hates that things turned out so messy with Taylor Swift
When music couple Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift split up, it was all over the news. However, Calvin doesn’t necessarily regret his relationship with Taylor, his only regret was that he didn’t do enough to keep their relationship troubles as private as it should have been.
“Now I see that Twitter thing as a result of me succumbing to pressure. It took me a minute to realise that none of that matters. I’m a positive guy. For both of us, it was the wrong situation, it clearly wasn’t right. So it ended.”
James Franco regrets not taking his girlfriend to the hospital
Unlike other Hollywood men, James Franco’s regret wasn’t cheating or divorcing. His one regret was not taking his girlfriend to the hospital when she needed him.
Franco confessed that the moment haunted him so much as he thought of himself as a selfish and self-centered partner.
Kristen Stewart condemns herself for betraying Robert Pattinson
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson’s fairytale love came crashing down when Kristen cheated on Robert with director Rupert Sanders.
Although the Twilight stars have moved on from each other and remain, friends, Kristen still regrets that she betrayed Robert’s trust.
Britney Spears is unhappy about her marriage to Kevin Federline
Britney Spears regrets her marriage to dancer Kevin Federline. She revealed that she only married Kevin for the idea of marriage and not because she was following her heart or truly in love with him. Hopefully, Britney has learned her lesson from the whole ordeal.
Jude Law remains forever sorry about ‘the nanny incident’
Some cheating scandals are too heavy to recover from, and this is the case of Jude Law. He cheated on his betrothed Sienna Miller with the nanny of his kids. As devastating as the situation was, Jude was able to take the high road and sincerely apologize to Sienna for the way he hurt her.
Kim Kardashian wishes that she married Kanye sooner
Not all regrets are about marrying the wrong person or cheating on someone you love. For some, it’s not getting what you wanted early enough. An example is the famous Kim Kardashian and her marriage to rapper Kanye West.
The social media queen regrets that she didn’t get married to Kanye sooner. Luckily, all things worked out great for these two as they have three beautiful kids together.
