Celeb Exes Who've Had to Work Together After Splitting Up

People Logo By Grace Gavilanes of People | Slide 1 of 15: Johnson and his producer ex have continued to collaborate on blockbusters since their 10-year marriage ended in 2007. "It's not [easy]," he told E! about working together post-breakup at the premiere of Hobbs & Shaw, which Garcia executive produced. "For everybody out there, relationships aren't easy, marriages aren't easy, you gotta work at it."

"You never sign up for divorce … And we started out as friends and through divorce we still remain friends, but that kind of stuff takes a lot of work," the actor continued. "A lot of times you see the glitz and the glamour of here in Hollywood and it’s a big premiere, but that's the kind of sludgy stuff that everybody goes through. You gotta get your therapy and you got to go through it. But I always tell people and I always tell couples who are going through it — especially the dudes who seek out my advice who are like, 'How did you do it?' — I always say, 'You gotta put in the work, and just remember that you were friends beforehand.' Like, try to think about things like that, and think about your goals."

Garcia and Johnson are parents to 17-year-old daughter Simone Alexandra Johnson.
