STAT: According to the University of Toronto, at least half of these women will get divorced


Sudden success seems to shorten the marriages of female — but not male — actors, according to research led by Tiziana Casciaro of the University of Toronto. Best Actress winners at the Academy Awards face a 63% chance that their marriages will end sooner than the marriages of nonwinners, according to the study of nominees from 1936 to 2010. The median marriage duration for Best Actress winners was 4.3 years, compared with 9.5 years for non-winners. There’s no such effect for Best Actor winners.

Here are this years nominees.  Any predictions?

  • Annette Bening
  • Nicole Kidman
  • Jennifer Lawrence
  • Natalie Portman
  • Michelle Williams
