Angeline Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton’s Blood-Vial Necklaces

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly Jolie cleared up the rumors that her and ex-husband Thornton wore vials full of each other's blood around their necks.  “No! It was never a vial anyway. It was like a flower press. It was like from a slight cut on your finger and you press your fingerprint in. It was kind of a sweet gesture. I thought it was kind of romantic!”

Woody Allen Marries His Ex-Girlfriend's Daughter

Talk about keeping it in the family. In 1992 Allen called it off with longtime sweetheart Mia Farrow and jumped into the arms of her 22 year-old adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Pervin.

He’s a notorious bad-boy; she’s notorious for going after bad boys. So when tattoo artist Kat Von D linked up with motorcycle designer Jesse James, they seemed a match-made in rebel heaven.

Tilda Swinton's Love Triangle

The arrangement Swinton has with her, errr, lovers, is quite the unusual one.  "I don't have a husband. I've never been married. I have children with someone else, with whom I'm bringing up my children. And I've lived with someone else, my sweetheart, for the last three years, and maybe it's extraordinary that we're really all friends. We are all a family."

When Richards split from husband Charlie Sheen, she found comfort in the most unlikely of places: her friend's ex-husband. Heather Locklear had already split from Richie Sambora, but still took offense to the coupling and ended their friendship.

I mean, Charlie knew Richie, but it's always the women who get the brunt of it all!  You can't help who you fall for.”
