How They’re Still Friends!?
Tony and Eva
Despite being in the midst of a potentially nasty divorce battle, Eva Longoria and her basketball player husband, Tony Parker have kept things amicable. The couple, who married three years ago, shocked fans when they announced in November they were both filing for divorce. And although the reason for their separation might be grounds for an all out war, Eva has chosen to remain friendly with her soon-to-be-ex husband.
And while all fingers have up until now, been pointed at cheating Tony, it’s Mrs Parker who’s causing a stir with new accusations suggesting she too has been unfaithful. With sources citing Lance Armstrong as a potential fling, Tony’s philandering ways suddenly don’t appear so bad which could explain Eva’s recent friendly lunch date with Tony.
Courteney and David
He may have shared too much information on their split, but David Arquette has managed to remain friends with his wife of 11 years, Courteney Cox. The couple announced their trial separation in October and despite David’s public revelations about their sex life and his countless extra-marital conquests, Courteney has maintained they’re still good friends and are dedicated to staying close for their six-year-old daughter, Coco.
In a statement to the public, the pair insisted, “We remain best friends and responsible parents to our daughter and we still love each other deeply.” Proving true to their word, they couple have since been spotted enjoying a game of bowling together and also sharing a “cordial” family lunch at a local steakhouse. The pair even greeted each other with a kiss on the cheek.
Jude and Sadie
They may have split in 2003, but Jude Law and Sadie Frost maintain a fairly close relationship for the sake of their three kids, Rafferty, 14, Iris, 10, and Rudy, eight. The couple who wed in 1997, are dedicated to raising their offspring together. Which means while Jude has rekindled his romance with Sienna Miller, he continues to visit his ex wife and kids regularly, attending school events, birthdays and family holidays. Even their friends admit the relationship is unique – “It’s different to most divorced parents.”
Demi and Bruce
If there’s one celebrity couple that proves you can stay friends after divorce, it’s Bruce Willis and Demi Moore. The Hollywood stars ended their 13 year marriage in 2000 but have remained surprisingly close ever since, with Bruce even welcoming Demi’s new (and much younger) husband Ashton Kutcher into his life. With three daughters between them, Demi and Bruce, along with Ashton, are the picture-perfect family spending holidays together and appearing at events arm-in-arm. Now that’s what you call an unconventional Hollywood family!
