It seems everyone in Hollywood has more than one marriage under their belt these days. Here’s a look at some of the most surprising “starter marriages.”

Jennifer Garner and Scott Foley
Before she was Mrs. Ben Affleck, Garner was an up-and-coming star on the hit TV show “Alias,” and married to actor Scott Foley. The couple split in 2003.

Lisa Marie Presley and Michael Jackson
Before the King of Pop married Debbie Rowe, or had a kid named Blanket, he was briefly married to “The King’s” daughter.

Tom Cruise and Mimi Rogers
Before Nicole, before Katie, there was Mimi.

Robert DeNiro and Diahnne Abbott
The actor and actress were married for more than a decade and had a son together.

Charlie Sheen and Donna Peele
Seen here after their 1995 nuptials, the couple called it quits less than a year later because Sheen reportedly said he was “suffocating and had to come up for air.”

Michael Douglas and Diandra Luker
Douglas, who was 32 at the time, married 19-year-old Luker in 1977. Although they separated in the mid-1990s, they weren’t officially divorced until 2000.

Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin
The actors were married in 1993 and had a daughter together, Ireland Baldwin.

Harrison Ford and Mary Marquardt
The couple was married from 1964 to 1979.
