  • The “Oscar Curse”: Hollywood myth or unfortunate reality?
    Posted by on 9 Jun 2011
    We have all heard of the so-called “Oscar Curse” in which successful actresses reach the top of their game and win an Oscar, only to announce the end of their marriage or long-term relationship shortly afterwards.

In Australia, we have seen the recent demise of Delta Goodrem and Brian McFadden’s relationship (just as Delta’s ‘star’ was rising in the US), rumours of trouble in Danni Minogue and Kris Smith’s relationship, and the end of other high-profile relationships with the demands of time spent apart, distance and hectic career schedules publicly blamed.
