Sometimes, a 33-year age difference just can't be overcome. Billy Joel and Katie Lee threw in the towel in June after not quite five years of marriage ... Colin Farrell works fast. He began dating Polish actress Alicja Bachleda in early 2009. They welcomed son Henry in October ... The "Heroes" set probably became a mite uncomfortable in February. That's when age-mismatched lovebirds Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia called off their coupling of more than a year ... James Van Der Beek didn't want to wait for his life to be over before he experienced bachelorhood again. In November, the "Dawson's Creek" alumnus filed for divorce from Heather McComb after six years of togetherness.
