Running into an ex can be tricky. Spending a few months filming a summer blockbuster, with them, even more – unless you are Dominic Cooper and Amanda Seyfried.

That’s because the former couple, who a few years after meeting on the set of ‘Mamma Mia!’ in 2007, was never to let their past get in the way during the filming of the sequel to “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” last fall.

“She is a friend,” Cooper, 40, told the BRITISH Attitude magazine. “It was always OK. You just have to be delicate with those situations.”

It probably helped that both actors have moved on with their lives since calling it quits for good in 2010, Seyfried. Last year the actress, 32, married to Thomas Sadowski and got the couple a daughter.

“She is now married and has a beautiful child,” Cooper told the magazine. “We knew that we were going to work together [again] on a set, to go back to a part that was definitely going to remind us of 10 years earlier, but I know her family, I know that her mother, who was there a lot.”

Or one of those old feelings came back, it sounds like Cooper had a good time together with his old flame.

“It was a pleasant atmosphere,” he added. “It was really interesting to see how different our lives are after 10 years. It is a long time and it was nice to spend time [with her].”

The experience of working with an ex could prove to be useful for the Cooper, too. In April, he and “Preacher” co-star Ruth Negga broke up after eight years together.

Although the series has yet to be renewed for a fourth season – the third is currently on the air AMC has not announced any plans to cancel it.
