Sad and Shocking NewsFans were shocked to hear the news that Chad Lowe, 37, and Hilary Swank, 31, decided to split after eight years of marriage. Is it really another celebrity breakup or are they just taking some breathing room? Find out the latest scoop right here.
One Major OversightChad and Hilary famously supported each other's acting careers through many highs and lows. When Hilary won her first Oscar for Boys Don't Cry, she forgot to thank Chad in her speech. People immediately began to speculate on the state of their marriage.
Lightning Strikes TwiceWhen she won her second Oscar for Million Dollar Baby, she repeatedly thanked Chad during her speech. The overly enthusiastic display of thanks left people wondering why she felt the need to publicly defend her appreciation for her husband.
Living in the ShadowSome feel that the breakup may be a result of Hilary's star shining so much brighter than Chad's. Her career has been going through the roof, while his has been on a steady decline for years. When questioned about her single status on the Golden Globes red carpet recently, Hilary was less than pleased with the question. She quipped back that she and her husband were working hard on their marriage. It sounds like there may still be hope for this Hollywood couple but only time will tell.
