Many years after Jennifer Lopez's relationships with Ben Affleck and Marc Anthony ended, her exes still only have good things to say about it. They were interviewed in a cover story for InStyle about the star, to whom Affleck was engaged and Anthony married, and they both praised Lopez's work ethic. 

Anthony spoke about her ability to visualize and perfectly execute ideas, and how she's always working the hardest out of everyone. "When we were together, it was quite the opposite for me," he said. "That has changed since. I learned so much from her. She's the original!"

Affleck shared a similar sentiment: "I thought I had a good work ethic, but I was completely humbled and blown away by what she was committed to doing day in and day out." He added that, "She remains, to this day, the hardest-working person I've come across in this business. She has great talent, but she has also worked very hard for her success, and I'm so happy for her that she seems, at long last, to be getting the credit she deserves."

The actor also commented on her agelessness, asking, "Where are you keeping the fountain of youth? Why do you look the same as you did in 2003 and it kind of looks like I'm in my 40s … at best?" 

Ending a relationship is never an easy ride, and it can get even more complicated when it's under the gaze of the whole world. Nevertheless, many celebrity exes still somehow remain on good terms afterwards. Click through this gallery to check out other famous former couples who managed to stay friends.
