Prior to her marriage to musician Ben Harper in 2000, actress Laura Dern was engaged to Billy Bob Thornton. The couple dated for three years after guest-starring on an episode of "Ellen" (via InStyle), before their relationship came to an abrupt end in 1999. "I left our home to work on a movie, and while I was away, my boyfriend got married, and I've never heard from him again," Dern told Talk magazine in 2000 (via Honey Celebrity). "It's like a sudden death. For one has there been any closure or clarity."
