There are people who have sworn off dating their friend’s exes because sometimes it never ends well. However the stars we are about to discuss are proof that it can be done and it does not have to end in enmity.

Although Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner reportedly only dated for about three months, according to Us Weekly, their relationship made it on the big screen in the rom-com hit, “Valentine’s Day.” Lautner and Swift broke up in December 2009. The same year, Gomez and Lautner were also romantically linked after they both filmed projects in Vancouver. Sadly, things ended before it got too serious. Selena partially blamed the paparazzi that were constantly hounding them. Despite all that, Gomez and Swift’s friendship stands strong.

Nikki Reed and Nina Dobrev — Ian Somerhalder

Before marrying Reed in 2015, Somerhalder was in a relationship with Dobrev. They eventually broke up in 2013, and in the years that followed, Reed, a mutual friend of Somerhalder and Dobrev’s, became the target of backstabbing rumors. They continued until last February, when Reed finally hit back at the media for building up a fake feud between her and Dobrev. She posted an Instagram photo with Somerhalder and Dobrev and wrote a lengthy caption that included: “So here’s to putting an end to all those fake stories of on set jealousy, betrayal, made-up-friendships, and women hating women.”

Gwyneth Paltrow and Drew Barrymore — Luke Wilson

Paltrow and Wilson got together in 2001 after costarring in “The Royal Tenenbaums.” However, prior to that relationship, Barrymore and Wilson dated for almost two years before splitting in 1999. Years later, the actresses are still good friends. Paltrow even invited Barrymore to talk at the Goop summit in January, which Barrymore commemorated with a joint selfie.

Beckinsale and Sheen dated for eight years and welcomed a child before their separation in 2003. However, when Sheen and Silverman got together in 2014, Beckinsale became friends with her, too. “I don’t know why everyone was so surprised. Sarah’s such a fantastic woman, I love her, and Michael and I have gotten on for years now,” she said two years ago. Sadly, Silverman and Sheen parted ways in February 2018.

Reynolds and Taylor were involved in one of Old Hollywood’s biggest love triangles. Reynolds married singer Eddie Fisher in 1955, welcoming two children, Carrie and Todd, but then he had an affair with Taylor after her husband, producer Mike Todd, died in a plane crash. Fisher went on to marry Liz in 1959, but they parted ways in 1964 after she had an affair with “Cleopatra” costar Richard Burton, whom she married soon after. Reynolds was able to forgive Taylor after they ran into each other on a ship to London after they’d remarried. They remained in close contact afterward until Taylor passed away in 2011.

The actresses seemingly got caught up in a feud after dating two of the same men. Their beef reportedly began in 2010 when Diaz started dating Alex Rodriguez, who previously dated Hudson. (They broke up in 2009.) Things get more complex when a source revealed that Diaz only pursued the A-Rod romance to get back at Hudson for getting with her ex, Justin Timberlake, in 2007, shortly after they broke up. The feud stretched on until 2012, when they appeared to make up at an Oscars party, embracing each other warmly.

The SNL alum started dating Moretti in 2012 despite his romantic history with her good friend, Barrymore. But the Santa Clarita Diet star did not mind and was totally supportive of Wiig’s relationship with her ex. “It seems fitting that they would find each other. I was like, ‘Right, of course, that makes perfect sense,’” she told Allure in 2012. Wiig and Moretti ultimately broke up in 2013.

However, before the fan-favorite romance kicked off, Paltrow was with the actor from 1994 to 1997 and even got engaged to him in 1996. Jen has been known to praise Paltrow in the past, and their friendship remains strong even today.
