5 Celebrities Who Struggle With Relationships

Categorized as Gerard Butler

Struggling with maintaining or even finding a steady relationship, these 5 stars have all revealed that they find the whole process quite hard. Some are just too dedicated to their work to have enough time to give to someone else, or they move around too frequently to make it work in one place. Others have other issues with relationships and fall hard for people or just don’t know how to behave as a healthy couple.


Ashley Greene


Ashley is often too busy for relationships: “I’m always here and there – everyone in my industry is – and that’s why a lot of relationships are fleeting. I’ve gotten very good at detaching whenever I have to go away for three months, which I realise is hard on friends and kind of selfish… You go on a couple of dates, and then someone ships off to do a movie. It’s not like you’re going to fly out and see them, because it’s not serious enough for that.”

Drew Barrymore

Drew has had difficulty with relationships because she’s never seen a healthy one: “I’ve never really understood how I should feel or behave in a relationship. I didn’t have the kind of childhood which would have given me any perspective on what a happy home life or relationship would feel like. My father was literally out of his mind and my mother was more like a friend. She’d take me out to clubs and I wound up feeling like part of this very unreal kind of world, although that was the only world I ever knew growing up.”

Gerard Butler

Gerard is never in one place long enough: ”It’s hard when you are leaving all the time. I’m not in Australia. Who wants to put up with that? But who says life has to be just one relationship? Maybe it’s meant to have many short relationships?”

Harry Styles

Harry thinks being in the spotlight makes relationships hard: “I think relationships are hard enough, so I think you have to completely ignore everything from outside. When you’re in the opening stages of a relationship as it is, you’re still under the pressure of getting to know everything about a person. If you have a lot of people from outside telling you what it is and they don’t even know you, telling you what your relationship is, that’s weird. So I think you sort of have to block it out and just have the relationship rather than think – we’re having this relationship play out on magazine covers.”


Rihanna says she often falls too hard for people: “I have been conservative in my love life… it’s pretty much nonexistent. If I come across someone who I find really cool, I’ll hang out. But the minute I find that we’re getting too close I just – I don’t let people in. When I was in love, I fell so hard… The way it made me feel was priceless. And in a blink of an eye my whole life changed. Everything that I knew was different. I never thought I’d feel that pain in my life. I’m afraid of feeling that again.”
