Celebrity exes who are still friendsExes who are still friends
Breaking up is hard to do. There's even a song about it. You'd think it would be even harder to be friends with your ex, but some celebs -- like actor Eddie Cibrian and country-pop darling LeAnn Rimes, who made peace with his ex-wife, Brandi Glanville -- count their exes among their amigos.
David Arquette and Courteney Cox
Happily by each other's side at the premiere for their newest movie, both stars have talked openly about Arquette's personal struggles and how they affected their 11-year marriage. They're still separated, and the jury is out on whether they'll reunite.
Demi Moore and Bruce Willis
The twosome divorced in 2000, but Willis has great things to say about the younger man who stole her heart.
Will Smith and Sheree Zampino
It's hard to believe, but there was a woman before Jada. Smith shares a son with former flame Zampino, who recently remarried. But even Will and Jada talk about how they are all one big family.
Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee
They divorced in 1998 and reunited in 2008, for about a year. Anderson married another musician during their 10-year break but insists that she and the rocker are best friends and are a family for their two sons.
Elizabeth Hurley and Hugh Grant
Together for 13 years, Hurley and her man stood side by side during a scandal, before the two broke up in 2000. She recently filed for divorce and has hinted at reconciliation with Grant.
Janet Jackson and Jermaine Dupri
The two split after seven years together but reunited for work on an album. Jackson recently made this declaration about Dupri, so it wouldn't be a surprise if the two kept working together as friends and business partners.
Richie Sambora and Heather Locklear
After being married for 13 years, the two split in 2007. Sambora still has his day job, and though the divorce was a surprise to him, he supported Locklear during a rough patch and the two parent their daughter together.
Avril Lavigne and Deryck Whibley
Married for three years, the two rockers parted ways in 2009. Lavigne recently was linked to a new beau but maintains that she and Whibley are good friends.
Kate Hudson and Chris Robinson
Together for seven years, the pair shares a son. These days, Hudson has baby No. 2 on the way with her new rocker beau, but she and Robinson parent together and remain friends.
