Geena Davis and director Renny Harlin were married in September 1993. Though sparks reportedly flew in the bedroom, their cinematic collaborations received mixed reviews. The big budget Cutthroat Island (1995) (starring Geena as a pirate) flopped, as did the thriller The Long Kiss Goodnight (1996). "If it isn't a success," Geena joked before the premiere, "that still wouldn't be grounds for divorce."
The couple broke up six months later and divorced in 1998.
[Geena's second marriage, to actor Jeff Goldblum, also ended in divorce shortly after the production of Thelma and Louise. The film's tagline? "Somebody said get a life... so they did."]
