We’ll be honest:
As a celebrity gossip website, we like it when couples break up and hurl insults at each other and act all immature and petty and bitter.
But it can also be refreshing to see stars as like fully-formed, fair and reasonable adults.
Just consider the amicable terms on which the following stars split from each other:
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner
Affleck and Garner split in June of 2015, but kept hanging out together. She finally filed for divorce nearly two years later, but it was so amicable, the pair aren’t even using attorneys.
Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney
Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney cooled their relationship off when it became apparent that their rigorous schedules were becoming a bit much. Gaga also said she wanted everyone to root them on. Something tells us they will be back together at some point.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin
Gwyneth likes to imply that she can do things better than everybody else, so it came as no surprise that she and Chris parted amicably. She wanted to prove that she’s above all petty nonsense.
Hillary Duff and Mike Comrie
Hillary and Mike called time on their relationship in 2014 and have remained close ever since.
Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton
Their relationship coming to an end was hardly shocking, but they were surprisingly amicable about all of it.
Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfedlt
Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfedlt kept it classy when they parted ways in September 2016.
