The actress also revealed that she thinks the best way to “maintain a good relationship with your exes” is to be respectful of their current lives, partners and children.

She said People Magazine: ‘I’m still very good friends with Hugh, you know, we’ve been through so much together.

“But I’ve been thinking, one of the most important things about maintaining a good relationship with your exes is to have a lot of respect for their current lives.

“We haven’t been romantically involved in 20 years, I think, even though we have such a strong friendship, but we are always very aware that there are other people in our lives.”

She did add that you must respect each other’s partners and children and that you cannot live in ‘a beautiful, rosy mist of the past’.

The beauty explained that you have to “go with the times” and be “very respectful of the present.”
