Jamie Kennedy, 38: Hewitt's Ghost Whisperer costar has made her "the happiest I've ever been," she said.
David Spade, 44: He was at Locklear's side after her divorce from Richie Sambora, and the pair remain friendly. He was spotted smooching Sheridan after her split from Michael Bolton.
Justin Long, 30: Barrymore called the relationship "full of humor and a lot of fun" – and the friendly exes, who were seen slow-dancing in January, are back together to film a movie.
Vince Vaughn, 39: In 2005, he found romance with Aniston when they played an unhappy couple in the movie The Break-Up.
