Talk about successful co-parenting!

Though they’ve been divorced since 2013, Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli were nothing but smiles while on vacation together over the weekend — and PEOPLE has exclusive images from their time at the Dreams Playa Mujeres Golf & Spa Resort in Cancún, Mexico.

But it wasn’t a rekindling, romantic trip. The former couple was joined by their two younger daughters — Lola, 14, and Fiona, 10 — Garth’s husband Dave Abrams, and Facinelli’s girlfriend Lily Anne Harrison. (Garth and Facinelli’s eldest daughter Luca, 19, is away at college.)

“The group seemed happy, like a modern family,” an onlooker tells PEOPLE. “The adults would look to each other to provide cover for one another when the kids were plunging into the pool and gleefully splashing them.”

“There was a lot of laughter and they seem to be having a ton of fun,” continues the onlooker.

Adds the onlooker: “As a whole, the group was very playful, and especially seemed to have fun playing on the beach, kicking around a ball, playing music and just all around entertaining one another.”

Emma Thompson has no tolerance for body shaming.

The Saving Mr. Banks was discussing the pressure for actresses to be thin in Hollywood while on the Swedish talk show Skavlan last week, and revealed she once threatened to quit a production when a producer asked one of her costars to lose weight.

“There was a wonderful actress in a film I did called Brideshead Revisited,” she remembered of the 2008 film. “The producer said to her, ‘Will you lose some weight?’ And she was absolutely exquisite!”

That’s when Thompson decided to intervene. “I said to them, ’If you speak to her about this again, on any level, I will leave this picture. You are never to do that,’” she revealed.

For Thompson, the incident was emblematic of a larger problem in show business. “It’s evil what’s happening and what’s going on there, and it’s getting worse. The French fashion industry said they would get rid of size zero and then, you know, they didn’t,” she said.

“The anorexia — there’s so many kids, girls and boys now, and actresses who are very, very thin into their 30s, who simply don’t eat. They don’t eat … Sometimes there are just some subjects that you absolutely have to make noise about because it’s so tedious and it’s gone on and on,” she added.

After years in the business, Thompson said she has a comeback reserved for any filmmaker who criticizes her appearance: “Sorry, do you want me to be an actress or a model?”

Luna Lovegood and the Weasley twins are no longer barred from entering the Forbidden Forest.

The now-grownup actors who played the fan-favorite characters — Evanna Lynch, Oliver Phelps and James Phelps — reunited for the star-studded opening of the Forbidden Forest, part of the Warner Bros Studio Tour in London on Monday.

Oliver and James played Fred and George Weasley, respectively, the quirky older brothers of Harry Potter’s best friend Ron, while Lynch played the etherial Lovegood.

The trio were joined at the event by Warwick Davis, who played three characters at different points in the franchise, including, Professor Filius Flitwick, the Gringotts bank teller in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, and he provided the voice of Griphook (played by Verne Troyer) in the same film.

The Harry Potter theme parks have been prime real estate for cast reunions. Just a few months earlier, Jason Isaacs paid a visit to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at the Universal Orlando Resort in Florida and reconnected with Tom Felton, who played his onscreen son Draco Malfoy, and Matthew Lewis, who portrayed Neville Longbottom.

The Forbidden Forest leg of London’s Warner Bros Studio Tour opens on March 31.
