The Oscar-winning actress and Lowe met in 1992 on the set of Quiet Days in Hollywood, and wed in a lavish ceremony in 1997.
They announced their split in 2006 and the former couple has since moved on - Lowe welcomed his first daughter with girlfriend Kim Painter in May (09), while Swank is now dating her agent, John Campisi.
But the Million Dollar Baby star still cherishes the time she spent with her ex-husband.
She says, "It's really such a part of the past, it's over now, so there's no sense in diving back into that. He'll always be one of my best friends. You know, you can't spend 14 years with someone and not carry them in your heart forever."
Newly single actress Hilary Swank has confirmed she is dating her agent John Campisi.
The Oscar-winning star filed for divorce from her husband of nine years Chad Lowe in May.
Swank says, "I'm dating a great guy. You rely on your friends when you go through something so big. My friends are my family."
Swank: 'Divorce Is Not the End of the World'
Hilary Swank believes her pending divorce from Chad Lowe is "not the end of the world" because couples separate all the time.
The Million Dollar Baby star filed for divorce from Lowe in May, and is pleased to be getting on with her life.
She says, "That's life. Millions of men and women fall in love, get married and then get divorced.
"If what happened to me helps someone realize they're in a great relationship and to hold the person closer, then do it.
"If it makes someone realize they're in an unhealthy relationship that is making them both unhappy, then it's not the end of the world."

Oscar winner Hilary Swank has found love again with top Hollywood agent John Campisi, according to reports.
The actress split from husband Chad Lowe last year and filed for divorce earlier this year, but she isn't planning on being single for long if romantic pictures of Swank in Rome are anything to go by.
According to Life & Style magazine, the man romancing Swank on vacation in Italy is Creative Artists Agency (CAA) boss Campisi.
The couple was spotted kissing and holding hands while taking in the romantic sights of Rome on Aug. 27.
Despite the photographic evidence, Campisi is adamant his relationship with the actress is all about business and friendship.
His lawyers state, "Mr. Campisi has a strictly platonic relationship with Ms. Swank."
An insider tells Life & Style that Campisi has been helping Swank through her heartache and the two are more than friends.
One pal says, "Hilary cried on his shoulder when she and Chad split. He comforted her through that intensely difficult period."
Campisi was Swank's date to the Academy Awards in March and the couple has been together ever since.
