Heartbreak comes for all of us eventually, but you WILL get through it.
Sandwiches taste better when cut into triangles, red lipstick suits EVERYONE and breakups suck - all universal facts of life.
And it’s not just us non-famous folk who have to go through the hideous, heart wrenching, soul agony that is the end of a relationship - here’s a load of celeb quotes about splitting up to help you through the heartbreak.
Rita Ora on her split from Calvin Harris.
“At the time I just wanted to crawl in my bed and die. But I got out of it the other side, I’m surviving.”
Emma Stone on her first heartbreak.
“I was crawling on the floor. I remember throwing up. I remember being on the floor … I have never felt anything quite like that. It was so visceral. It’s like someone has killed you and you have to live through it and watch it happen. It was awful.”
Justin Bieber on his split from Selena Gomez.
“It was really tough. I don’t know if I’m over it yet. I think that I’m definitely in another place and I think we’ve definitely went our separate ways. I love her and I want her to be awesome, but there are things that remind me of her.”
Jennifer Lopez on ending her engagement to Ben Affleck.
“It felt like my heart had been torn out of my chest.”
Liam Payne on the end of Sophiam, after splitting with Sophia Smith.
“I’m absolutely devastated to have split with Sophia. Being on the tour all this year and being away from her was so hard. We spent so much time apart. But in order to do right by somebody sometimes it’s better not to do what your heart wants, but to do what’s better for them.”
Jennifer Aniston opens up about her divorce from Brad Pitt.
“There are many stages of grief. It’s sad, something coming to an end. It cracks you open, in a way – cracks you open to feeling. When you try to avoid the pain, it creates greater pain.”
Taylor Swift on using music to get through a breakup.
“There’s just been this earth-shattering, not recent, but absolute crash-and-burn heartbreak, and that will turn out to be what the next album is about. The only way that I can feel better about myself – pull myself out of that awful pain of losing someone – is writing songs about it to get some sort of clarity.”
Kim Kardashian on her divorce from Kris Humphries.
“I felt like I was on a fast roller coaster and couldn’t get off when now I know I probably should have. I got caught up with the hoopla and the filming of the TV show that when I probably should have ended my relationship, I didn’t know how to and didn’t want to disappoint a lot of people But I do know that I have to follow my heart. I never had the intention of hurting anybody and I accept full responsibility for my actions and decisions, and for taking everyone on this journey with me. It just didn’t turn out to be the fairy tale I had so badly hoped for.”
Rihanna talks moving on (you will get there).
"Once you're back on your feet - if you ever make it back on your feet - that's the ultimate achievement. I remember I was in New York at the Trump Hotel and I woke up and I just knew I was over it. It was a different day. I felt different. I didn't feel lonely. I felt like I wanted to get up and be in the world. That was a great, great feeling."
Ryan Phillippe on his split from ex-wife Reese Witherspoon.
“[Divorce was] the darkest, saddest place I had ever been. It was a struggle – there were a good four or five months of not being able to get out of bed. It was the worst time in my life. You get through it. It’s a process that’s not easy, but I get less and less sad about it every day.”
Amy Poehler on divorcing Will Arnett.
“Imagine spreading everything you care about on a blanket and then tossing the whole thing up in the air. The process of divorce is about loading that blanket, throwing it up, watching it all spin, and worrying what stuff will break when it lands.”
Lauren Conrad on how to cope.
“There are those breakups that are so bad that you will need a good cry and a pint (or two) of Ben & Jerry's.... Let yourself go and let yourself obsess over every little detail of the breakup and the relationship. You will need to do this for yourself. You will need to allow your mind to take it all in so that by the time you get back up on your feet, you know how you feel."
Alexa Chung on resisting the breakover.
“Hair is so linked to how we feel and everyone goes for something radical after a break-up, but my advice is not to touch your hair. It’s the first thing women do but you’re not in a fit state to make long-term decisions. You’ll have to spend four years growing it out. Buy a lipstick instead. Go and kiss loads of other people, but don’t f***ing touch your hair.”
“Only time can heal your broken heart, just as only time can heal his broken arms and legs.”
