Celebrity Exes Who Have Stayed Friends

Although these days it seems like everybody and their dog has a reality show, when it comes to the real rich and famous, they're still a select few -- far too small a group to hold a grudge. No one knows this better than these ex-couples. Whether it was a summer fling gone sour or a decade-plus long marriage gone awry, these celebs have managed to keep their cool long after they've signed on the dotted line.

A few feuding couples -- we won't mention names -- should definitely take note of these mature break-up tactics.

Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspooon and Ryan Phillippe found young love in 1999 before welcoming a son and daughter. But things weren't a typical Hollywood ending for the pair -- they split eight years later. The duo is still more than amicable as they co-parent their two children.

Demi Moore and Bruce Willis

This power couple married in 1987 and welcomed three daughters before calling it quits in 2000. But the happy family is still very much a unit -- Bruce even poses with the kids, Demi and Demi's new husband, Ahston Kutcher, on the red carpet!

Orlando Bloom and Kate Bosworth

Orlando Bloom and Kate Bosworth made quite an attractive pair and got pretty serious with their relationship before calling it quits. Maybe with their incredible looks combined they were just too hot to handle. But you can still catch the duo hugging it out when they run into one another in Hollywoodland.

Jack White and Karen Elson

After Karen Elson appeared in The White Stripes' music video "Blue Orchid," the chemistry was undeniable. The pair tied the knot in 2005 before calling it quits six years later. But they definitely ended on an amicable note -- they even threw a divorce party!

Penn Badgley and Blake Lively

They were the couple to beat on the Upper East Side but their on-screen "Gossip Girl" drama between Blake Lively and Penn Badgley seemed to spill off-screen into their real-life romance. But the show must go on! The pair still remains friends on and off set.

Miley Cyrus and Nick Jonas

The collision of the prince and princess of teen pop came when Miley Cyrus and Nick Jonas made sweet music on and off the stage. But the teen popstar world is too small for any hard feelings -- the pair is still more than friendly on the red carpet. How mature!

Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz

This rockstar and pop princess collided in 2008 before calling off their whirlwind romance three years later. But the pair did get one thing out of their short-lived union -- baby boy, Bronx. The couple still remains close in an effort to make things as normal as possible for their young son.

Courteney Cox and David Arquette

Courteney Cox and David Arquette tied the knot in 1999 before separating 11 years later. But the two actors are both fully supportive of each other and Arquette isn't shy about voicing his desire to get his wife back. We hope it works out for the pair!

Fran Drescher and Peter Marc Jacobson

Fran Drescher and Peter Marc Jacobson were married for 11 years before Jacobson admitted that he was, in fact, gay. Although shocking at first, Drescher finally got over her ex-husband's confession and now admits that they are the best of friends.

Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake

The ultimate fun couple may have split after dating for three years but that didn't stop them from still having a ball. The pair even starred together in "Bad Teacher" and played each other's love interests -- and apparently it wasn't awkward at all!

Kendra Wilkinson and Hugh Hefner

This playmate and her Lothario lover, Hugh Hefner, made good TV while it lasted on "The Girls Next Door." But there were definitely no hard feelings for this ex-couple -- Kendra married Hank Baskett at the Playboy mansion!

Deryck Whibley and Avril Lavigne

After three years of marriage, these punk rockers called it quits -- but Avril still insists that they remain quite close.
