AceShowbiz - Not all love lost is followed by a feud. Even though we may be too familiar with celebrities having a bitter relationship after they end their romance, some of them are giving hope in humanity and true friendship by maintaining a good bond with their exes.
Instead of throwing shades at each other, these stars show support and love to their former lovers, proving that an amicable split does exit and is not entirely impossible. Some of them even have no problem in having a double date with their respective new love interests, while some of them are kind enough to hang out with their exes' kids. What a good thing to see!
Among so many celebrity vicious breakups, let's take a look at the celebrity friendly exes!
When we're talking about friendly exes, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are definitely among them. Following their "concious uncoupling" in early 2014, the "Iron Man" actress and the Coldplay frontman are co-parenting their two kids, Apple and Moses Martin, with zero problem.
They continue to amaze people with their great bond when Gwyneth revealed that Chris and Brad Falchuk, who is now her husband, enjoyed friendly brunch together by posting a picture of the two men looking happy with broad smiles on their faces while sitting side-by-side at a table. Making their relationship even more beautiful, Gwyneth publicly gave actress Dakota Johnson, who is currently dating the singer, a birthday shout-out in October. "Happy 30th birthday to this absolute gem," the "Avengers: Endgame" star said of the "Fifty Shades of Grey" actress.
B.J. Novak and Mindy Kaling found love when they starred together on hit NBC sitcom "The Office". The stars, who played Ryan Howard and Kelly Kapoor respectively, had a romantic relationship briefly back in 2005, though it didn't last long. However, the former couple didn't see any reason to be bitter to each other despite their failed romance.
Even after so long, B.J. and Mindy flawlessly maintained their friendly relationship as the 39-year-old actor was seen "carrying" and "kissing" Mindy's baby daughter in September 2018. Along with Mindy, the trio were snapped walking through Soho House. The "Ocean's 8" actress gave birth to her baby in December 2017 while the identity of the father has yet to be revealed.
Another legendary friendly exes are Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck. The "Alias" alum and the former Batman depicter tied the knot on June 29, 2005 before they decided to split in 2015. Despite their divorce, there is no bad blood between the pair as they are doing exemplary co-parenting of their three children, Violet, Samuel and Seraphina.
Jennifer also played a big role in Ben's newly-celebrated sobriety with her staging an intervention at his home back in August 2018, prompting the actor to agree to enter rehab facility in L.A. County. Most recently, Ben, who seems to be still struggling with his addiction, was pictured taking their kids for some trick or treating with Jennifer to celebrate this year's Halloween.
When Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber announced their split, it was arguably a nationwide sadness. Thankfully, the former couple, who shares sons Sasha and Kai together, ended their romance with no hard feelings for each other and continued co-parenting their kids amicably.
In an August interview, the "King Kong" actress didn't hesitate to gush over her ex. "We're doing things very differently. I'm pretty proud of us, corny as that may sound," she said. "We've made it our absolute priority to be good and kind to each other and we're absolutely committed to that."
Anna Faris and Chris Pratt were one of the couple goals until they shockingly announced their split in August 2017 following eight years of marrige. Fortunately, the pair are commited to have a civil relationship for the sake of their son Jack. The "Mom" star even proudly said in a May interview with Marie Claire that they have "a great friendship."
Anna showed that when she sincerely congratulated her ex-husband for his engagement to Katherine Schwarzenegger earlier this year. "I'm so happy for you both!! Congratulations!" Anna wrote underneath the "Guardians of the Galaxy" star's post about him taking his relationship with the eldest daughter of actor/politician Arnold Schwarzenegger to the next level.
Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick are one of the chillest exes in Hollywood. In addition to having no problem co-parenting their three children together, the former couple is professional enough to keep working together by starring on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians".
Following their split, both Kourtney and Scott have been exploring their love lives with others. Kourtney used to date model Younes Bendjima and Scott is romancing Lionel Richie's daughter Sofia Richie, who joined Kourt and Scott's family trips with their kids multiple times. In one episode of "KUWTK", Khloe Kardashian even praised her sister for inviting the 21-year-old blonde stunner to their vacay since it might not be easy for any of them. However, the trip proved them wrong when the "Flip It Like Disick" star shared a photo of them lounging under the scorching sun.
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield brought their on-screen romance as Gwen Stacy and Peter Parker in "The Amazing Spider-Man" to real life for about four years, making them one of Hollywood's hottest young couples at the time. But just like their characters' fate in the movie, the pair called it quits in 2015.
Despite their failed romance, they remain friends and keep supporting each other. They didn't even hesitate to show that when they shared a warm hug at a pre-party for the 2017 BAFTAs in London in addition to the "Hacksaw Ridge" actor giving Emma a standing ovation when she received her Best Actress Golden Globe a month before. Speaking on Variety's podcast, Andrew shared, "There is so much love between us and so much respect. I am her biggest fan as an artist."
Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama were in a romantic relationship for six years before calling it quits in 2016. The former lovers remain close even though they ended their romance. The "Sorry Not Sorry" hitmaker even called the 38-year-old actor her best of friend "no matter what" in a July 2018 post on Instagram.
They indeed have strong bond since Wilmer was one of the people who rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in the same year when Demi was hospitalized over an apparent overdose. "He visits Demi every day he can, and has spent hours with her and her family. Wilmer and Demi have always shared a strong bond, and Wilmer knows Demi better than anyone. He's seen her highs and lows, and has always been there for her, and he knows she needs him now more than ever," a source said of the exes.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon got married on her private island in the Bahamas in April 2008 after only six weeks of dating. However, their whirlwind romance didn't make their bond any less stronger than others. If anything, the pair are doing a good job co-parenting for their twins Moroccan and Monroe after separating in 2014.
Although Mimi is now happily dating Bryan Tanaka, some people seem to be still hoping for the "All I Want for Christmas Is You" hitmaker to reunite with the TV host. Nick further added hope for a reunion when he said he wouldn't marry again if it wasn't to Mariah. Mimi, though, jokingly said that Nick was just being "silly."
Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz might get divorced way back in 1993, but no one could argue that they're closer than ever. The pair, who share daughter Zoe Kravitz, were even friendly enough to hit the red carpet together at the 2015 Met Gala.
As if that wasn't enough to make them one of the celebrity friendly exes, Lenny is also a good friend with Lisa's current husband Jason Momoa. In a July interview with the U.K.'s The Times, Lenny gushed over the "Aquaman" star, saying, "I love her husband--he's like a brother to me."
