While it isn't always easy to look a former lover in the eye, there have been plenty of examples when it comes to actors (and other Hollywood types) who've successfully worked with their exes. Dwayne Johnson consistently works with his ex-wife behind the scenes of his latest blockbusters. Jennifer Lopez recorded an album with her ex-husband, Marc Anthony, years after their breakup. Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder managed to carry on as the leads in The Vampire Diaries after splitting in real life.
Sometimes, you've just gotta work with a former flame. Each example below is proof that a broken heart can be mended enough to work with the one who broke it.
