A broken heart/relationship often leads to two things: it either makes a person go batsh*t crazy, or it can help one build themselves up.
Kathryn Bigelow- a movie director and producer- faced a similar fate with her former marriage to Avatar’s director, but she chose to go with the latter than become desperate.
After being legally divorced from James, Kathryn made a film called The Hurt Locker in 2008- which made her the first women director to win the Oscar award. Interestingly, she took that award by beating her ex-husband, James, in the same category.
