Here’s another example of “conscious uncoupling” at its finest!
In case you forgot, the longtime loves ended their 13-year relationship back in December 2014 and have seemed to remain friends despite the split! Color us impressed!
“I could write a thesis on what’s happened and it is all-absorbing when a relationship breaks down, but I think we’re coming through it. I think we’ll have something very precious still.”
At the time, HBC’s rep noted that the Suffragette star and the famous director:
“…separated amicably earlier in 2014 and have continued to be friends and co-parent their children.”
We had our doubts about their “friendship” since most breakups are difficult to navigate — but the entertainment powerhouses seem to have mastered the whole “friendly exes” situation.
“Our relationship was always somewhat special, and I think it’ll always remain special. We did find each other. And really, the mark of a successful relationship shouldn’t be whether you’re there forever after. Sometimes you’re not meant to be forever together.”
We can dream, right?!
