Sandra Bullock May be Part of the Oscar Curse

If the rumors about Sandra Bullock and Jesse James are true, she will join a long line of women that had relationships end after getting an Oscar. So are these men not “man enough” to handle a woman’s success? I doubt it. I think that these marriages were probably over prior to the Oscars, and the couples stayed together to avoid drawing attention away from awards season. See the unfortunate list below.
