So sweet! Everyone needs friends like that! Especially when you’re going through what Natalie sadly had to go through…

As you may recall, reports surfaced last May that the Star Wars actress’ then-husband Benjamin Millepied cheated on her with a 25-year-old. At the time, word was that Benjamin was “doing everything he [could] to get Natalie to forgive him.” And for a while, it wasn’t clear if she was going to stick with him or leave his ass since they’d been married for over a decade and share two young children. But she finally came to her senses and put herself first, opting for the latter and filing for divorce last July! And back in February of this year, they officially finalized things, leaving Natalie a free woman! In March an insider told People:

“[The split] was initially really tough for her, but her friends rallied around her and helped get her through the worst of it. Natalie is coming out of a really tough and painful year but she’s come out the other side of it stronger and is finding joy in her family, friends and work.”

And now, yeah — thank goodness for friends!! With them by her side, the Where the Heart Is star seems to totally be living her best life now! Good for her! Happy birthday, Natalie!
