Feb. 1 (UPI) -- Busy Philipps had a friendly reunion with ex-boyfriend Colin Hanks this week.

"He was my college boyfriend. We went to Loyola Marymount University together in Los Angeles," Philipps shared.

"We are very, very close friends now. His wife [Samantha Bryant] and I are very tight. He and my husband [Marc Silverstein] hang out. We go on vacation together," she added. "But yeah, we dated for a long time, actually."

"I was a jerk. We were young. We were babies," the star explained of their split. "It's our 20-year friendship anniversary. We met 20 years ago this year."

Philipps tied the knot with Silverstein in 2007, and shares daughters Birdie, 8, and Cricket, 3, with the Never Been Kissed screenwriter. Hanks, meanwhile, shares daughters Olivia, 6, and Charlotte, 3, with Bryant, whom he married in 2010.

"We got our first movies within the same week. We were able to go through these really special moments in young actors' lives together. Now we also get to do morning school drop off together! Our kids are in the same school," the actor shared.
