20 Celebrities Who Stayed Friends After a Breakup
Maintaining a good relationship with your ex sometimes turns out to be an uphill task. The issue doubles when you are a celebrity and your whole life is in the spotlight constantly. Though many Hollywood couples fail to do this, there are still some who’ve managed to turn their love relationship into a friendship.
Today Bright Side is looking back at the celebrity couples who’ve managed to stay on good terms after their breakup.
Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston
After many years of not hearing from these 2 — the former couple seems to have reconciled. The touching moment Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston shared at the recent 26th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards has kept people talking. The ex-couple congratulated each other on winning their awards after which Jennifer left Pitt, while he still held her wrist gently in his hand.
Angelina Jolie And Billy Bob Thornton
The relationship between Angelina and Billy can easily be called the craziest in Hollywood. Though they were only married for 3 years, their fans have seen all of the possible manifestations of their love for each other: from wearing vials of each other’s blood to tattooing each other’s names on their bodies. Despite all the craziness, they’ve managed to stay on good terms after their breakup. Jolie even wrote a couple of pages in Billy’s memoirs called, The Billy Bob Tapes: A Cave Full of Ghosts describing him as the man who “can make you laugh until your face hurts.”
Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony
Out of the 3 marriages Jennifer had, her marriage with Marc Anthony lasted the longest — for about 10 years. Today the couple pal around together and Lopez even called Marc “her best friend.” It seems the former couple is doing their best to show their kids they still have a good relationship and unconditional love despite their separation.
Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr
Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr and actor Orlando Bloom got married in 2010. 3 years later, the couple announced their separation. Nevertheless, they can still be seen together quite often and this fact even caused a wave of tabloid speculations about their possible reunion. The paparazzi turned out to be wrong because soon after that, Bloom started to date Katy Perry — and they even announced their engagement last year.
Heidi Klum and Seal
Each year, while they were married Heidi Klum and Seal renewed each other’s vows in front of family and friends. They still got divorced but managed to stay good friends — they can be seen out for dinner occasionally, and Heidi even invited Seal to take part in her show America’s Got Talent as a judge.
Demi Moore and Bruce Willis
Perhaps it’s because of their 3 kids or their long-lasting marriage (about 15 years) that Bruce and Demi managed to stay good friends. It seems that the ex-spouses are pretty close to each other now because Moore even roasted her former husband on Comedy Central.
Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe
The actors’ marriage lasted for about 5 years. Reese and Ryan have 2 kids together, Ava and Deacon, and are getting along quite well nowadays. It seems that the couple has figured out how to stay on good terms and continues to raise their kids in peace and harmony.
Gwyneth Paltrow And Chris Martin
Gwyneth and Chris, the lead singer of the band Coldplay, were married for a little more than 10 years. The couple has 2 kids together. They called their breakup a “conscious uncoupling” and it seems they were not lying, because these 2 can be seen together often walking, talking, and having a nice time together.
Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake
Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake had been dating for 4 years before they announced their separation. Still, they both agreed to act in the movie, Bad Teacher, where both of them had leading roles and they felt quite comfortable acting with each other. Moreover, Diaz has said that she and Justin are still good friends.
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield
This couple’s split took place in 2015 after 4 years of dating, but they can still be seen hanging out together. When Emma won her 2017 Golden Globe for Best Actress, Andrew gave her a standing ovation. If that doesn’t prove they are still good friends, then what does?
Would you be able to stay friends with your ex or does this sound like part of a fictional tale?
