When we normal people break up, one thing we all try to avoid is running into our Ex. For celebrities, this becomes a more difficult task as even though they are no longer together they still have to attend awards or some other functions where it's really hard to avoid the other. But this gets really really awkward when they have to work together and continue to ACT as couples.
Here are some real life celebrity couples who did not let their breakup affect their work no matter how difficult it would have been for them.
