Oh, the wild world of celebrities and their ever-changing relationship statuses. As many of us know, they don't usually end well. But when celeb exes stay friends, we take note. Let's take a gander at the couples who leave us all saying, "Awww, good for them."

Despite their public divorce and messy end to a 22-year marriage, Caitlyn Jenner and Kris remain friends... or so some sources claim. Their joint statement is: "We will always remain best friends and, as always, our family will remain our number one priority."

Hadid and The Weeknd may have called it quits in 2016, but the two definitely seemed friendly at the Victoria's Secret Fashion show in Paris in 2016 after their split. Bella strut proudly down the runway while The Weeknd serenaded her. If that's not friendly, I don't know what is.

Paltrow and Martin may have been the cutest couple on planet earth once upon a time, but now they have the sweetest friendship. So, at least we still have that? The two even bought houses next to each other in Los Angeles. I guess their "conscious uncoupling" is working.

Paltrow mentioned on her website Goop.com, "We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate." The love is real; the relationship... not so much.

Comedic dream team and The Office co-stars Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak may have broken up but they're definitely still buddies. In 2015, Kaling told InStyle: “My relationship with B.J. Novak is weird as hell. He is not my boyfriend, but he is not my best friend. I guess you could describe our relationship as a 'romantically charged camaraderie with loud arguments,' but I don't think Facebook would accept this as a new status."

Good for them.

This charming couple didn't last long (the two broke up in January 2017) but the exes are still pals. Slate and Evans even joked on the red carpet at the premiere of their film, Gifted, by shaking hands and posing for photos. It might've been awkward, but we couldn't tell.

Beautiful couples may look good together, but they don't always feel good together. Bosworth and Bloom broke up in 2006 after three years together. The two have been spotted in LA since and appear to be friendly, happy, and NOT awkward. That's true friendship.

When a notorious diva and Latino superstar get together, we all hope for the best... but assume the worst. This dynamic duo surprised us all by appearing together at the Q'Viva! The Chosen Live concert in Las Vegas in 2012 after breaking up their marriage of 11 years.

As heartbreaking as their split was in 2016, the two have been spotted together hugging, laughing, and acting like BFFs. Good for them, sad for us.

In 2006, the superstar couple officially called it quits, but that didn't stop them from co-parenting and staying close. Hudson has said: "Kids just want to see their parents be cool. Everybody's cool; everybody's good."

In 2011, the couple divorced and the entire world kind of fell apart over it. Luckily, they're still close friends and continue to run their production company, Coquette, together.
