10 Photos That Prove Ben & Christine's Love Definitely Died

Ben Stiller and his wife Christine Taylor shocked fans on Friday when they made the announcement that they were calling it quits on their marriage after two children and a whopping 17 years together! In a joint statement, the pair said,“With tremendous love and respect for each other, and the 18 years we spent together as a couple, we have made the decision to separate. Our priority will continue to be raising our children as devoted parents and the closest of friends. We kindly ask that the media respect our privacy at this time.” While the majority of Hollywood is totally thrown off guard by the split, what if the duo’s failed marriage wasn’t such a shock after all, but was rather, a long time coming? OK! Magazine dug up several photos of the pair throughout the years that could quite possibly show that Ben and Christine may have actually been miserable in marriage together. Click through and let us know what you think!

The funnyman and comedic actress may play happy-go-lucky characters onscreen, but the pair looked far from joyous here as they posed together at the 21st Annual Hamptons International Film Festival on October 13, 2013.

What’s that over there, Taylor? The 25-year-old blonde beauty appeared completely distracted by something else rather than accompanying her hubby as he gave an interview.

Next, they posed for a pic sans their normally toothy grins. Fake smiles?

Here they are almost a year later on on June 19, 2014 at the Taormina Film Festival. And whatever Christine is telling her hubs, based on what this photo tells us, he’s definitely not listening.

We have no idea what’s going on here while having dinner together in the eternal city of Rome, Italy in May 2015, but with a face as grumpy as Ben’s it DOESN’T look good.

Isn’t Rome supposed to be romantic? Not for these two!

Aren’t sporting events supposed to be full of fun and excitement? These two look like they’d rather be ANYWHERE in the world but watching the matches on center court together at Arthur Ashe Stadium during the 2015 US Open.

This photo was taken in February of 2016, back when rumors were rampant that Stiller was a “horrible person” behind closed door, having made the list of one of Hollywood’s most hated celebrities. Pictured together again, without their typically toothy grins. at the Germany premiere of Zoolander No. 2 at the CineStar Sony Center in Berlin.

And here they are on March 2016 looking positively peeved. Christine attempted to take on the role of a doting wife as she accompanied Stiller on set of The Meyerowitz Stories in NYC. We don’t even want to know.

Lastly, here’s Ben out just a few short months ago in February in West Hollywood for a guys night out. He was photographed looking solemn at Craig’s where he was meeting pal, Adam Sandler. His once-doting wife wasn’t anywhere in sight.
