A horny woman once said, "the quickest way to get over someone is to get under someone else." Well, these famous ladies actually took that advice and proved that when a Hollywood marriage goes wrong, the quickest fix is to engage in some sloppy PDA with the nearest beefcake you can find. It proves two things: 1. you're still sexy AF, and 2. you're totally over your ex. Here are five celebrity moms who healed their broken hearts by hooking up with a hunk.
1. Jennifer Lopez
Jenny from the block has been married and divorced three times, so she knows a little something about rebounds. A few months after her seven-year marriage to singer March Anthony ended, J Lo got freaky with choreographer Casper Smart. Lopez said the dancer, who's 18 years younger, helped her heal. Yes, six pack abs on ripped hotties are very healing. In case bedding a young stud wasn't enough, she went on to shame her ex and the father of her twins by saying that dancers are better in bed than musicians. “Musicians are too self-absorbed. They are too concerned with themselves to be great in bed," she said.
Dang, that's how it's done. Here's a picture of Casper's bod incase you're in need of a little healing yourself:
2. Kate Winslet
Kate Winslet rebounds like she's in the NBA. Shortly after splitting from her husband, director Sam Mendes, the mother of two began publicly dating a 6-foot tall British beefcake, model Louis Dowler. Rebound love is often fleeting, and no one learned this faster than Dowler. The poor hunk accompanied Winslet to Richard Branson's vacation home in 2011, and then watched Kate leave the party with a different dude, Branson's nephew Ned Rocknroll. (Sick name, bro.) Winslet went on to marry and have another kid with Rocknroll, and Dowler went on to keep being hot. The Burberry model later told London's Daily Mail that he didn't appreciate the way Winslet dumped him. "I don't think Kate behaved well and it is still very raw for me," he said. Hey, at least she didn't leave him freezing to death in the ocean.
3. Reese Witherspoon
Shortly after Reese's 2006 split from husband Ryan Phillippe, the Oscar winner and mother of two was gettin' hot and heavy with her hunky Rendition costar Jake Gyllenhaall. The rebound lasted an impressive three years before the celebrity couple inevitably ended up in Splistville. Reese went on to marry Jim Toth in 2011, and Gyllenhaal went on to allegedly take T-Swift's V-card and inspire her song, "We are never ever ever getting back together."
4. Rachel Weisz
Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig were photographed together holding hands just one month after the actress split with her husband, director Darren Aronofsky. After nine years of marriage and a son with her husband, Weisz fell hard for her rebound lover, Dream House costar, Daniel Craig, AKA James Bond. At first the couple denied rumors of a real-life romance, but then proved the gossip mags right by getting married shortly after wrapping their movie in 2011. Rachel and Daniel are still married, giving hope to rebounders everywhere.
5. Gwen Stefani
Speaking of rebound couples we hope make it, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton's public rebound romance is going strong. When the mother of three's husband cheated on her with the nanny, Gwen found comfort in her The Voice costar, country singer Blake Shelton. In an interview with USA Today, Gwen revealed her 20-year relationship with her husband, singer Gavin Rossdale began to crumble the day after the Grammys, in February 2015, she filed for divorce that August. Three months later, a rep for Gwen confirmed the rumors that she and Blake (also on the rebound) were dating. Neither one of them have been able to shut up about it since.
