That intensity did occasionally spill out into arguments, however. In September 1994, Johnny was arrested for criminal mischief for allegedly trashing his hotel room. Police found him in "a state of possible intoxication" while Kate was uninjured. A judge dismissed the charge on the condition that the actor stayed out of trouble for six months – which he did.

"I have been so stupid because we had so much going for our relationship. I'm the one who has to take responsibility for what happened - I was difficult to get on with, I let my work get in the way and I didn't give her the attention I should have done.

Kate and Johnny were also rumoured to be engaged

"The whole thing was crazy because I should never have got so worked up over what people had to say about my work," he said. "Sure I should care about my movies, but when I get home I should try to leave that stuff behind. I couldn't do that and I was horrific to live with. Trust me, I'm a total moron at times."

Kate said she 'cried for years' after their split

Kate, who is notoriously private, later admitted to Vanity Fair that she had cried "for years" following the split.

"There's nobody that's ever really been able to take care of me. Johnny did for a bit. I believed what he said. Like if I said, 'What do I do?' he'd tell me," she shared.

The former couple are thought to be on good terms

"And that's what I missed when I left. I really lost that gauge of somebody I could trust. Nightmare. Years and years of crying. Oh, the tears!"

While not much is known about the couple's relationship today, it is thought they remain on good terms and that Kate will testify in Johnny's defence.
