Oh noes! Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds are getting a divorce! Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens have broken up! Those two actors from Dexter who got married are splitting! Where will it all end? And at the holidays, no less! So sad!
Why are people so invested in the love lives of celebrities? Is it a kind of escapism? Is it about fantasizing oneself in a relationship with someone famous? Is all the gossip and glee over breakups then merely continuation of the fantasy: Hey, Scarlett is free! Maybe she’ll marry me next!
I never understand why stuff like this is news.
Are there any celebrity breakups we actually need to know about?
I can’t think of any…
