Not every celebrity split is as convoluted and acrimonious as Christie Brinkley's with Peter Cook. The Stir rounds up ex-couples who remained friends:

  • Ryan Phillippe took care of his kids with ex-wife Reese Witherspoon to make sure they weren't affected by her disorderly conduct arrest, and he's also hung out with Witherspoon and her new husband, Jim Toth.
  • Billy Bob Thornton has said that he and Angelina Jolie are still in each other's lives, even after divorcing, and that he and his "amazing" ex often check on each other.

  • Not only are Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake still friends, they made Bad Teacher together after breaking up. Diaz has said she's friendly with all her exes.
  • Joe Jonas talked about Demi Lovato in an essay for New York magazine after they broke up, but Lovato forgave him and now says she considers him family. They sometimes appear together at concerts and sing duets.
  • Demi Moore didn't do so well with Ashton Kutcher's romance with Mila Kunis at first, but apparently she and Kutcher are on good terms now. She was reportedly one of the first people Kutcher told about Kunis' pregnancy, and Moore attended the baby's Kabbalah blessing.
