Ask them how does it feel to meet each other again for the first time after ending their two and a half years romance. Hilary Duff has the answer. "It was so, like, nerve-wracking," when she met Joel Madden for the first time since their split last November.
"I just did TRL today and Joel was there, and it was the first time we'd seen each other. I knew that he was going to be there and he knew. It is what it is. I mean, what am I going to do? It's life," Duff said on their March 26th meeting. "It was a little strange at first, but I wish nothing but good for him and I know that he wishes the same for me. I'm happy and he's happy and I think that's all that counts."
Madden himself spoke with People later on, saying "Every girl I've ever dated I have respect for, and I always try to leave them in good terms. I don't see the necessity to be friends with anyone you've dated but definitely out of respect of the time, you have to be kind of respectful and that's what I try to do."
A Good Charlotte singer, Joel has been dating socialite Nicole Richie since the split. Duff, on the other hand, is enjoying her being single.
