Celebrities Who Prove That It’s Possible To Be Friends With An Ex


There are some of us who don’t like the idea of sharing the planet with our ex, and then there is a handful of celebrities who prove that miracles do happen and not every relationship has to leave a sour taste in our mouth.

The whole world was shocked to see an end to Chris Martin‘s and Gwyneth Paltrow‘s marriage. However, the biggest surprise wasn’t their split, but how they split up. While the mean part of the world was expecting to hear the juicy details and learn all about the bitter reasons for the crash of what seemed one of the most stable marriages in Hollywood, the couple simply ‘consciously uncoupled’. Ever since, they’ve remained friends, united in the task to raise their children together – having family dinners, and even going to vacations together. A big clap for Chris and Gwyneth, please!

Just like her friend Gwyneth, actress Kate Hudson too managed to remain on good terms with her ex-fiance, singer Matthew Bellamy. Despite ending their three years long relationship, the former couple has continued to spend holidays together and go to family trips with their son.

Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet got married a long time ago, in 1987, and during their marriage, which lasted 6 years, they had a daughter together – actress Zoë Kravitz. Bonet has since married actor Jason Momoa and got two more children with him. However, despite their lives taking different turns, Lisa and Lenny still remain close friends and Lisa’s current husband allegedly gets on really well with her ex.

Among celebrities who prove that exes can be perfectly good friends, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore can serve as a book example. After 13 years long marriage, they remained so close that many thought they would remarry.

Who else proved that exes can stay great friends?

These are, however, not the only admiring examples of celebrities who prove that exes can be friends. Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom, Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie, Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas, Courteney Cox and David Arquette, Madonna and Sean Penn, Justin Timberlake and Cameron Diaz, Caitlyn and Kriss Jenner, Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillipe, Bianca and Mick Jagger all belong to the long list of celebrities who prove that break ups don’t need to be   a bitter experience.
