Have you ever seen one of your exes on the street and just wanted to dive into the nearest shop so you didn’t have to walk past them?

No? Oh. Me either.

Yeaaah me either ha ha. Source

Well, you can imagine how awkward would it be to have to work with them and have to act like everything’s okay. Depending on whether or not you’re a professional, and how it ended, it can either be super awkward or super chill. Many of our favourite celebs have had to deal with this less-than-ideal situation and here’s how they handled it.

Here are a few exes that we didn’t know had to work together after calling it quits!

5Jenny Slate and Chris Evans

These two lovebirds met on set while they were filming their new film ‘Gifted‘. They got together after the film ended, but Slate couldn’t handle the pressure that came with dating Captain America. So, they called it quits. Doesn’t mean they still don’t have to do promo together! Awkward.

4Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco

These two met on the set of the smash hit TV series ‘The Big Bang Theory‘. Despite the pair deciding to call it quits in 2010, they’ve still had to work alongside each other and date in the show. They also got ‘married’ in the show in the tenth season. No thanks!

3Sofia Bush and Chad Michael Murray

If you weren’t a fan of TV series ‘One Tree Hill’ growing up, you probably have no idea who these people are. Sofia Bush and Chad Michael Murray played love interests on the show and eventually got married in 2005. Cute, right? It was until they broke up because Murray was apparently sleeping with EVERYONE. They starred alongside each other for four more years (YEARS!) until Murray left the show in the seventh season. Bet Bush was thanking the stars that he decided to leave!

2Blake Lively and Penn Badgely

These two lovebirds met on the set of another incredibly popular teen TV show, ‘Gossip Girl’. The pair started dating in 2007, throughout the first season of the show. They broke up in 2010, but the show continued on until 2012, where the on-screen couple got married for the show. I’m sensing a theme here. The pair aren’t as friendly as Kuoco and Galecki are now though, as both are now married to other people.

1Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake

These two beautiful people met back in 2003 and dated for about four years, which was a shock to the celebrity world then. However, they called it quits in 2006 and the rumours went wild about Diaz being jealous of Scarlett Johansson who starred in the film clip for Justin Timberlake’s song ‘What Goes Around’. However, the duo reunited for the comedy ‘Bad Teacher’, and worked well together despite rumours that they wouldn’t. Unfortunately, they no longer speak and Timberlake is now married to Jessica Biel.

I couldn’t imagine working alongside one of my exes but that’s because my career doesn’t rely on me being beside them. Thank god, right?!
