9. James Cameron and Linda Hamilton
Canadian movie director, James Cameron is a box office technocrat. He’s known to create movie franchises that endure the test of time and bring in immense success and money. From Avatar to Titanic, Cameron has created some of the hugely successful movies of all time. That’s why it’s a no surprise that it was in the movie Terminator that he crossed paths with American actress Linda Hamilton when she portrayed Sarah Connor in the movie.
So when they got divorced in 1999 after only two years of marriage, the tabloids had a real field day as they swirled everything around regarding the divorce. Hamilton received $50 million as part of the divorce settlement, an amount that could only be considered loose change given Cameron’s immense wealth.
