(Newser) – Maybe most Hollywood breakups don't faze you in the least—but even the most cynical did a double take when Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman split up after 30 years of marriage. The Stir rounds up eight more of the most shocking splits of the year:

  • Amy Poehler and Will Arnett: Not only was this breakup shocking, it was a serious bummer. They had been married nine years and have two sons.
  • Heidi Klum and Seal: No one could have seen this one coming, given the couple's penchant for renewing their marriage vows every year.

  • Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes: This divorce itself wasn't so shocking as Holmes' ability to pull it off "with near-military precision."
  • Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis: Could anyone have seen this coming, considering quotes like this and this?
Click for the complete list—which includes a cheating scandal, of course.

I'm sad to see the Arnett/Poehler split, they actually seemed like a genuine couple

People don't seem to understand that actors and celeb's in general are very normal and kinda average people that are good at being entertaining in some way. Why are we shocked when they have marriage problems?
