Hollywood Truth or Myth: Is There a Best Actress Oscar Curse?
There has been a lot talk from others, including myself, about a Best Actress Oscar curse. I have done my research, and I am here to tell you that there isn’t one. In the past ten years, six out of ten Best Actress Oscar winners have split with their husbands shortly after winning the award. Is 60% really a curse? Here is the list of winners that did not have relationships end after winning the Oscar: Nicole Kidman; Charlize Theron; Helen Mirren; and Marion Cotillard. Also, let’s not forget when Sean Penn and Robin Wright Penn announced their divorce shortly after he won the Oscar for Milk. That proves that this is not some insane curse meant to punish successful women.
