Love is brutal, especially when you're an A-list, in-demand, jet-setting star.

We've learned over the years that Hollywood is notoriously bad for marriages and dating — in 2017, we witnessed the downfall of powerhouse couples like Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney, Chris Pratt and Anna Faris (the worst! We're still crying over this one) and Olivia Munn and Aaron Rodgers (by the way, did you know he has a new famous GF?). Well, so far, 2018 hasn't spared many beloved celebrity couples from experiencing that same heartbreak. We're just entering March, and already the list of Hollywood couples calling it quits is stacking up. 

Sure, there is still hope. New Hollywood couples are always popping up and stealing our hearts — but that doesn't make breakups any easier for anyone. The only thing that does is realizing that hotties like Justin Theroux and Amber Heard are single again, and who knows, maybe they'll want to date an everyday person with a not-so-glamorous life next... Ah, we can dream.

Scroll through our slideshow to see which celeb couples have ended their relationships so far this year. Warning: You might want to grab some tissues. This is a rough one.

I always had this idea that no matter what you did, no matter how you act, as long as you’re true to yourself and act in good conscious, your path would lead you to the one person on this planet you’re meant to be with. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned that although everyone DESERVES love, it’s not something we’re entitled to. Love takes work. Love is compromise. Love is earned. I still have a lot of work to do on myself, a lot to prove to myself, before I’m ready for something like that."
