Fame, Fortune, Friendships: These Hollywood BFFs Seem To Have It All!
In Hollywood, some stars are naturally put in the limelight more often, while others continue to find their ways to be recognized. One of the ways they continue making headlines is by hanging out with people who can help boost their popularity. Because of this, we sometimes doubt if what we see is real or if there’s more than what truly meets the eye. It is quite hard to keep track of squads and squabbles, but luckily, we have social media platforms such as Instagram to keep us posted. As celebrity friendships come and go, we find out whether these bonds are merely for show or whether these relationships are so real that they constantly have each other’s backs – even in matters as serious as their home loans. We guess it’s safe to say that finding true and long-lasting platonic friendships is difficult to encounter in show business.
Don’t get us wrong, though. There are still some genuine Hollywood friendships worth celebrating— and even ones that we don’t even know existed in the first place! This list is proof of that, so read up if you want to discover a celebrity friendship to root for!
Jessie J And Adele
Another pair who used to belt out their voices on the school grounds were Jesse J and Adele. Adele Took 15 Grammy Awards with the song “Hello” and Jesse J went viral around the world with the song “Bang Bang”. The two singers are now renowned in their own genres and have gigantic fan bases all over the world. However, in spite of their ongoing success, people are unwilling to associate them with each other.
In fact, their longstanding friendship helps them a lot in building their music history. They attended the BRIT School in London, where they learned to sing very skillfully. Now, the schoolmates have remained friends through the fame and fortune that they attained through the years. However, as time goes by, they are not as close as before. But the time they spent together will last forever. Many people hope that one day, they can collaborate together and make a song that can shock the world.
Will Smith And Tom Cruise
For years now, Will Smith and Tom Cruise have been enjoying a Hollywood bromance act. Tom Cruise is 57 years old and always pulling off the most mind-blowing stunts! Will Smith is a little younger than Tom Cruise, but he also attempted to do some Cruise-like stunts. These two have been inseparable for longer than one would expect, and yet surprisingly, not once have they worked together for a movie.
Despite that, we would often see pictures of the two giving each other a hug or supporting one another with their varying degree of achievements. In fact, in 2007, Will Smith was seen supporting his friend when he got a star in the Hollywood walk of fame. Here, he spoke highly of his friend, saying: “When I sit, and I talk with Tom Cruise, he is one of the greatest spirits that I’ve ever met—someone who is committed to making the world better.“ What more could you ask for from a bro?
Robert Downey Jr. And Kiefer Sutherland
Another pair in Hollywood that were already friends way before they were famous is Robert Downey Jr. and Kiefer Sutherland. When they were just starting out with their professions in Los Angeles, the dudes were roommates who shared an apartment to save from making personal loans. Just starting to build their careers, the duo helped each other through simpler times and reached for the stars together as well. They spent three whole years living together sometime in the ’80s.
Decades later, their friendship withstood the test of time. Robert confessed that when he was going through some hard times with Sarah Jessica Parker, Kiefer was the one consoling him. “He was probably staying with us for a while, and then I was having some trouble with Sarah Jessica, and he was looking after her,” Downey Jr. said to Howard Stern, “It was all rather incestuous back then”.
Miley Cyrus And Kelly Osbourne
Miley Cyrus and Kelly Osbourne are both Hollywood royalties, so it was not a surprise that they became close. Both children of known celebrities, they were brought up together and once worked on the same film entitled So Undercover. In turn, their friendship solidified as they got the chance to spend more time together.
Kelly admired Miley a lot. She never had a problem praising Miley. She said Miley is one of the most hard working respectful women she has ever worked with. In one interview with HuffPost Live, Kelly said that she totally loved Miley despite all her quirks. She gave the Wrecking Ball singer credit for being true to who she is. Kelly may not always be in agreement with Miley’s actions, but she admires how genuine the former Disney star is. It seems that despite all the wild headlines and bad rep, Miley has found a forever friend in Kelly.
Lea Michele And Jonathan Groff
Only the best friendships could ever defy the norms. Lea Michele and Jonathan Groff have been each other’s best friends for quite a few years. When Michele got married to Zandy Reich, Lea Michele made Jonathan Groff her maid of honor. The singer slash actress made the public announcement on her Instagram post showing a selfie of them together on a beach with the statement on the caption.
The two performers met on stage when they both starred in the Broadway musical Spring Awakening in 2006. After this gig, they both worked together again on the smash-hit TV show Glee. They didn’t have any more projects together since then, but the duo definitely continued nourishing their talents and, with it, their friendship. It’s safe to say the degree of impact that music had on their relationship is massive, so to speak. Michele is quite grateful for Groff’s presence in her life. She can laugh harder, and cry harder, with Jonathan than she has with anyone else.
Demi Lovato And Selena Gomez
Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez’s friendship is probably one of the most popular ones in Hollywood. They met on the set of Barney & Friends back in 2002 when they were only seven years old. When Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez became teenagers, they were both Disney darlings with their own shows, but they were always together for the channel’s events. When they both left Disney, they grew apart as the pop stars led separate lives and careers.
Nowadays, many people considered that they are no longer friends. However, Gomez posted a photo of Lovato singing to congratulate her at the 2020 Grammy Awards. Whether you’re Lovatic or a Selenator, don’t despair! Sources say that though they don’t hang out as much as before, Demi and Selena still hold each other dear. The degree of closeness may not be the same now that they’re adults, but they’re not on bad terms either.
David Beckham And Snoop Dogg
Snoop Dogg and David Beckham might sound like an unlikely duo, but the guys are actually two peas in a pod. They have been close friends for a full decade. Back in the summer of 2007, David was cast into the reality show where Snoop’s family was filmed in their day-to-day lives. David was brought in as a guest to teach Snoop’s three kids to play soccer. This is where they met and had a chance to get to know each other a little better.
David had just moved into Los Angeles and found friendship with Snoop as well as his family. When they finished filming one day, Snoop apparently called David to listen to his new album. Since then, David has always been one of the few people with whom Snoop would share his music. In 2014, It was reported that Snoop basically wanted Beckham to drop his own album. Who would have thought that the degree of their bond would become this deep and intimate?
Chrissy Teigen And Kim Kardashian
Meeting your best friend on a double date isn’t the most common way to start a story, but this was how interesting the road to the friendship between Chrissy Teigen and Kim Kardashian came to be. Chrissy Teigen was then dating her now-husband, John Legend, and Kim Kardashian was with her then-boyfriend Reggie Bush when the women found that they had a lot more in common than they thought.
Chrissy Teigen revealed that she was so nervous when she met Kardashian at first sight. However, when they were in the bathroom, their relationship became more comfortable. When they both hit the girl’s room at the same time that night, they became instant friends even when Kim and Reggie eventually broke up. They got closer than ever as they were at each other’s weddings and were there for each other’s pregnancies. Eventually, home security systems and parenting styles might have become a part of their conversations with each other now that they’re both certified homemakers.
Nina Dobrev And Julianne Hough
Do you ever feel that two of your friends from separate circles would just click when you introduce them to each other? That’s definitely what Nina Dobrev and Julianne Hough’s hairstylist thought when she was working with the two girls. As you know, Nina Dobrew becomes famous for her role in Vampire Diaries. Meanwhile, Julianne Hough joined the cast of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars as a professional dancer.
When the pair were made to meet each other, they knew that some electricity sparked between them. Nina shared in an interview with Cosmopolitan that though most people think they became friends because they experienced rough breakups at around the same time, but they actually formed a bond that went beyond those heartaches. They liked the same things, which were not usual for most girls in their circle. Julianne affirmed this in an interview with People where she described their friendship as being “yin and yang.”
Justin Timberlake And Ryan Gosling
The award-winning Hollywood artists Justin Timberlake and Ryan Gosling are greatly recognized today for their own hard-earned success. Justin Timberlake is famous for his musical achievements. Ryan Gosling is best known for his roles in The Notebook and La La Land. Although the two aren’t so often associated with each other anymore, they actually have quite a history way back when the popular Walt Disney TV Show The Mickey Mouse Club aired during the early 1990s. During the last two seasons, both of them joined the show. As a matter of fact, this was when an interesting friendship between the two started.
Ryan Gosling is of French-Canadian, English, Scottish, and Irish descent, which clearly makes things more complicated as to where he should obtain benefits like insurance and social security. Essentially, during the early ’90s, he lived with Justin Timberlake to ease issues with his citizenship. This allowed Gosling to continue his work in the show, and, as a great bonus, form a great bond with a fellow cast member.
Drew Barrymore And Cameron Diaz
Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz have known each other for almost 20 years. Although many friendships in the industry are dissipating gradually over the years, they always love each other and support each other. Before our favorite idols took on the limelight, they had rather simple lives. Drew Barrymore was a barista when she met Cameron Diaz, who was a regular customer. The two bonded and became close over coffee before they both made it big in Hollywood.
Soon, they both landed roles in Charlie’s Angels, but this was just an addition to the many experiences they have already undergone with each other. Drew said in an interview with ET that she thought of Cameron as her sister and not just her best friend. Since they have been alongside each other for most of their lives, the degree of love and friendship that they have for each other is a lot stronger than others that you might find in show business.
Kristen Stewart And Dakota Fanning
The Twilight Saga stars Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning definitely hated each other in the movies, but they are actually the best of friends in real life. A public display of their tried and tested bond happened in 2016 at the ELLE Women in Hollywood Awards. Dakota had to book an airline ticket and get travel insurance to make sure she made it to the event to present Kristen’s award. During her speech, she said that Kristen was such a special friend to her because she was always with her when she needed her the most.
Kristen then received the award and said equally kind words about Dakota. Girlfriends really inspired a lot of people back then, and it was also quite obvious how much they missed each other. They shared all their happiness and sadness with each other. Stewart revealed that the friendship between her and Dakota Fanning is the most meaningful of her life. Dakota always be there for her whenever she needs her most.
George Clooney And Brad Pitt
Chemistry works in mysterious ways. The electricity between two like-minded people when they work together or hang out with each other is unmistakable. Because that shared connection is special, we believe it’s hard to find. This was the case when Brad Pitt and George Clooney started working with each other on the sets of Ocean’s Eleven, Ocean’s Twelve, and Ocean’s Thirteen. The bromance between the two has always been the subject of fans’ curiosity and interest.
Mischief is what George like best. He threw away no opportunity to do Brad Pitt a mischief. He once planted a bumper sticker that was read “F the Police” on Pitt’s car and then the move got Pitt into trouble. However, George said in an interview that they don’t see each other often. They’re good friends but aren’t that joined at the hip. When they do see each other, though, the sparks fly just like before.
Busy Philipps And Michelle Williams
Some friendships are just so strong that they convince you that you don’t need anything more in life but a bond as tight as that. Michelle Williams said in an interview with People how much she loved her best friend, Busy Phillips. She said that having her in her life proved that she didn’t need a man to be happy and contented.
Michelle went as far as giving Busy credit as the “love of her life.” This sweet love story began when the two stars met on the set of Dawson’s Creek in 2001. They became good friends and continued to hang out even after the show was over. Not only their charming red carpet moments but also their gorgeous social media posts, they always show us a solid and warm friendship. Over time, they developed a deep bond that would last them the rest of their lives.
Oprah And Gayle King
This long-time duo is definitely the kind of friendship we would credit as the real best friend goals. Oprah and Gayle King have been friends for years and according to Gayle, what brought their relationship to life was the goodness of Oprah’s heart. She recalled that they had met in 1976 while working at a Baltimore TV Station. During that time, she was a production assistant, and Oprah was a news anchor. Gayle recounts that a snowstorm hit their area, and so Oprah willingly offered to let Gayle stay in her house for a while to ensure security.
In 2019, their video series called The OG Chronicles was born. By the show, they had enough time to spend time with each other and share a laugh together. The now-television personality said that their friendship started during the first night of her stay because she finally found someone whom she thought was like her.
Jada Pinkett Smith And Queen Latifah
Hollywood big names Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith have been seen together in blockbuster movies Girls Trip and Set it Off, but they are actually very close friends in real life as well. Their bond is unmistakable in front of the camera, but it goes so much deeper behind it.
In an interview with People, Jada recounted how she met Queen Latifah in a Baltimore club one night. She was trying to get the promoter to allow her to introduce the rapper of the night, and then she met Queen Latifah, who was a performer there. They had a good time that night, and a wonderful friendship of more than 30 years grew from it. The Tinseltown favorites talk about everything – from their deepest and darkest secrets up to serious things like money management. It seems like they’ll never run out of conversation topics, then!
Natalie Portman And Rashida Jones
Not all movie stars are social butterflies. While a lot of them are outgoing and loud, some celebrities are also introverts. Natalie Portman confessed to leading a private life despite her massive success in the entertainment industry. She also said that her closest circle of friends mostly revolve around her high school group and those she spent time with while she was taking up her degree.
The Black Swan actress, however, seemed to make an exception for Rashida Jones. As one of Natalie’s very few close celebrity friends, she managed to win her over and know her for who she really was outside of the limelight. Rashida said that though Natalie was quiet, she was actually a fierce friend who would do anything to protect those that she holds dear. If you can’t count on yourself, the actress is the kind of friend you could count on to lift your head up.
Jennifer Lawrence and Aziz Ansari
They say that real friends would not stop you from doing crazy things, but they would never let you do crazy things alone. Jennifer Lawrence and Aziz Ansari are definitely a wild pair. They were all over social media because after they went to the Saturday Night Live star Amy Schumer’s party, they exited via piggy-back ride. Aziz was riding on JLaw’s back while she was in heels. They were all smiles, and the degree of closeness the two have is evident in their silly antics and their endless laughter.
Other than that memorable night, Jen and Aziz have worked together in a short film called Hi Guys where Aziz co-starred with Chris Pratt and Jen directed. Amy was also in the project as the director of photography. The two have given new meaning to friendship and their friendship has continued to grow over the years.
Keira Knightley And Sienna Miller
When we share the same interests with another person, the tendency is that we spend more time with them. If girls share the same preferences in fashion, beauty, and coffee, though, a much tighter bond would be expected to form. The two girls met when they worked together on the film The Edge of Love. Ever since then, they have been two peas in a pod who were always spotted shopping endlessly or hanging out in a cafe.
Sienna Miller always trusts Keira Knightley unconditionally. When she asked to give suggestions on motherhood, Sienna Millker said that Keira doesn’t need any advice and she believed Keira would be amazing. Sienna also said in an interview that she finds Kiera one of the most beautiful people she’s ever met both inside and out. It is hard for most people to praise someone unreservedly. However, Sienna Miller told us if you admire someone indeed, you will not try to stop telling the world how excellent she is.
Ariana Grande And Liz Gillies
It is not easy to maintain a childhood friendship. Great singers Ariana Grande and Liz Gillies have been friends since their teenage days. Although both of them are busy with their work, their friendship remains the same. Most people think that they met on the set of the Nickelodeon show Victorious, but they actually met on Broadway when they were just 14 years old.
When the musicians both got cast into Victorious, their friendship expectedly got tighter. One trivia that most fans may not know about this musical duo is that the two used to split their home security allocations and lived together. On top of everything, they built their dreams hand-in-hand and went to Hollywood for the first time together. It is quite lucky of both of them to meet each other from a very young age. Plus, their friendship continues to grow over the years. They are certainly the ultimate friendship goals!
Leonardo Dicaprio And Tobey Maguire
A deep friendship that has remained amidst all adversities — impressively standing firm through status and popularity over the years in Hollywood— is that of actors Tobey Maguire and Leonardo DiCaprio. Tobey Maguire is best known for playing the role of Spider-Man. Almost everyone knows the name of Leonardo Dicaprio but not much about his personal life.
The companionship between the two began when they auditioned for the same role in a TV show in 1990. From thereon, both had agreed to help one another especially on matters concerning the industry, and until now, their bond stays strong. During an interview with the Associated Press, Leonardo gave credit to Tobey for his help. He said that each decision he made, he consulted with Tobey and the other way around. The Titanic star also shared how the pair had a lot of conversations with each other about the projects they participated in. Sometimes they argued, but all the time, they had each other’s backs.
Jessica Biel And Jennifer Garner
Sometimes, the people who end up becoming our best friends are just the ones who come out of nowhere. Hollywood celebrities Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel only met on the set of Valentine’s Day because they were cast together in the movie. They didn’t think they would leave the location with a great friendship in tow! Because they found that their personalities clicked and they shared common interests, the girls decided to make an investment in quality time with each other.
During the 4th Annual Power of Women Gala of Variety, Jennifer had a chance to present the Tiffany Luminary award to Jessica. At that moment, they showed their lovely friendship to the public without hesitation. When they were asked about their personal life, Jessica said that, when she looked at Jennifer, she was a bit in awe. She felt like all her seconds were full all day long.
Carey Mulligan And Marcus Mumford
Celebrity couple Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford may now be officially together, but their great love for each other started out pretty differently. The two were very good friends ever since they were kids. In fact, they were penpals who sent each other letters regularly for years.
They met at a church camp when they were about 12 years old. After the summer of fun and lots of bonding, Carey and Marcus continued to keep in touch by writing to each other. They lost touch after a while, but the long-time friends both became famous and successful in their respective careers. They met once again as adults at an event where Marcus was playing. Moving forward, the pair began writing to each other again and, after a while, started dating. They must have felt the electricity instantly because five months later, they got engaged.
Millie Bobby Brown And Maddie Ziegler
This pair of cute teenagers have stolen the hearts of many fans. Dance Moms star Maddie Zeigler and Enola Holmes lead Millie Bobby Brown went to the Teens Choice Awards together as each other’s date. They were obviously having a lot of fun as they were giggling the entire night. Although both of them are still at a young age, they are quite successful in their respective fields.
In an interview with People, Maddie said she met Millie when the young actress visited the set of So You Think You Can Dance? where Maddie was performing. Apparently, Millie was a huge fan, but when they started to talk, the pair instantly clicked and began hanging out. Maddie and Millie were spotted having fun at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, drinking Butterbeer together. They also did a lot of normal teenage stuff like having slumber parties, texting, FaceTiming, and using their credit cards to go shopping.
Meghan Markle And Serena Williams
Sometimes, the best friendships just happen when you least expect them to. World-class athlete Serena Williams and actress-turned-royalty Meghan Markle have been best friends ever since they met during the Super Bowl in 2010. They were introduced to each other by a mutual friend, and their relationship just clicked.
During Meghan’s royal wedding with Prince Harry, Serena was one of the few celebrities invited to support the actress. She also posted a video on Instagram that day just like any other besties. In 2014, they were also spotted playing flag football together in Celebrity Beach Bowl by DirectTV. A fun and quiet relationship is always one that will stand the test of time-take theirs, for example. Although it is not highly publicized, the degree of their closeness is still apparent in their pictures and in their Instagram stories of one another.
Reese Witherspoon And Mindy Kaling
Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling first met on the set of A Wrinkle in Time, and since then, their friendship felt like it was fate in the works. The women felt electricity between them when they were filming the movie together. They were really in sync to the extent that even after the movie, they spent a lot of time together.
As a result of this chemistry, they traveled together to New Zealand to go sightseeing and hang out. The actresses also made Christmas wreaths for each other’s houses. On top of this, they created nicknames for each other: Reeses Pieces and Min Diesel. On social media, they are both active, and they try to insert each other in different, creative ways when they post something new. Their Instagram feeds are now almost identical as they both dominate the other’s feed.
Brad Pitt And Christina Applegate
Back when Brad Pitt was not that big of a star as he is now, he was very close friends with Christina Applegate. Back then, Christina was a rising celebrity for her TV credit on Married… With Children. Stardom truly does come with mind tricks as the two teenagers started dating, but when Christina brought Brad along as her date in the MTV Awards in 1989, she ditched him for another boy! During an interview, Applegate admitted that ditching Brad Pitt for other dude is the dumbest thing she ever did.
The two have known each other well for a long time, and reports say that they still get together from time to time even after that catastrophic night. True friends will remain friends even when they are tested by challenges. It’s a good thing that they got over their blunder when they were kids!
Justin Timberlake And Jimmy Fallon
Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake are known to have a bromance thing going on because of their antics on SNL, but before they were both cast into the show, they already bonded over backstage jitters. They met during the MTV Video Music Awards in 2002, where Jimmy was hosting for the first time, and Justin was performing solo for the first time. They were both nervous about going out on stage, so they took comfort in each other and gave one another credit for being the other’s “good luck.” A beautiful friendship grew from then on.
As coincidence would have it, in 2013, Jimmy had the opportunity to present the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award to Justin back in the MTV Video Music Awards where they first met. For now, they have been BFF to each other for almost 20 years. The lovely friendship between them continues to grow.
Amanda Seyfried And Mae Whitman
Another celebrity friendship that dates way back to their childhood years is Amanda Seyfried and Mae Whitman’s. It is considered that their friendship is the most unexpected friendship in Hollywood. Although featured in different movies — Amanda is known for movies like Mean Girls, whereas Mae is best known in Good Girls, the two have actually walked red carpets together. These girls have made investments in acting for most of their lives, so it’s just right that they become friends as familiar faces of the industry.
Despite the three-year age gap between them, their friendship remains strong up until now. As a matter of fact, in 2015, Mae found an older picture of the both of them wearing similar denim looks and quote-tweeted it with a caption, “Canadian Tux!” It’s great to hear that they treasure their memories together, after all these years.
Brooke Shields And Matt Dillon
It was a few decades ago when a lot of dating and romance rumors were spread about Brooke Shields and Matt Dillon. The two were inseparable and they have been photographed a couple of times, going on parties and adventures. With their coziness, it could definitely be mistaken for something more by the public.
When asked about the spreading news, Matt would always be quick to deny the rumors and explain that Brooke was simply a very close friend of his. In the course of their friendship, Matt had almost starred with Brooke in the successful and equally-controversial movie Blue Lagoon. However, Matt did not want to take any kind of credit from the film because of certain requirements for his supposed co-starring role. They must be the most important person to each other after having been friends for decade years.
Jay-Z And Busta Rhymes
Our favorite idols now are super talented, but these skills did not just happen overnight. Talents are honed over the years, and the people who have been around to see these artists grow are the ones who are most important to them. Hip-hop artists Jay-Z and Busta Rhymes are known legends in the music industry right now, but years ago, they took their verses to the cafeteria. They both went to George Westinghouse Career and Technical Education High School, meeting each other as sworn rap rivals.
In an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Jay-Z recounted how he battled and even beat Busta Rhymes during their lunch break rap sessions. It seemed like the degree of competition back then was really high – but look at where it got them today! Guess this competition really influenced the two rappers a lot not only in ability but also in their rap career.
Sandra Bullock And Ryan Reynolds
The 2009 film The Proposal was such a big hit that a lot of people wished Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock would get together in real life. Though not a couple, they have been great friends who hold each other up in every milestone. Sandra even admitted to having attended Ryan’s movie premieres to be a good friend and show her support.
They’re not likely to get married, unlike the characters in their romantic comedy movie, but their friendship will surely endure the seasons. They both lead their own lives, yet they still have nothing but good words about each other. Ryan even considered Sandra as a member of “his family”. During a interview, he revealed that If it’s the right, they’ll do it because it’s like working with family. The electricity between them was really great on-screen, so we’re hoping they get to do another film together soon!
Drew Barrymore And Courtney Love
The interesting friendship between Drew Barrymore and Courtney Love kicked off during Drew’s younger days. The actress was just nineteen years old, still caught up enjoying the most out of life, and stuck in her party girl phase as a young adult – free from responsibilities such as paying bills and insurance experienced in adulting.
During this time, Courtney Love recalls being in a club and finding Drew Barrymore in the bathroom. She explained that this was where and when they officially met and became good friends. Despite the big age gap, the two immediately clicked and maintained their friendship. Much later, Drew Barrymore managed to clean up her act and even had Courtney to be the godmother of her daughter. However, Drew admitted that they haven’t seen each other in a while, but she really hopes to reconnect with Courtney.
Tina Fey And Amy Poehler
We give credit to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler for changing the game of comedy and for just being the most hilarious duo in Hollywood. They brought joy to countless people though their perfect cooperation. These women first met in the year 1993 at Chicago’s ImprovOlympics and were introduced to each other by Charna Halpern, who was a theater co-founder. Upon meeting, the two immediately became the best of friends.
After years of friendship and collaboration in their work, we simply can’t deny the fact that Amy and Tina are the cutest and most dynamic pair there is. Their relationship is on another level as they ultimately lifted each other up. As explained by Kelly Leonard, the two were joined at the hip, and they kept trying to work together on the same projects. Double the fun, we dare say! Nothing can destroy their friendship!
Jennifer Aniston And Chaz Bono
Artists make their way to the top and become recognized only after years and years of training. Along the way, they meet people who have the same passion as them, and these people become their friends. One example is long-time high school buddies Jennifer Aniston and Chaz Bono.
These two did not only think of performing as a passion and a hobby. For them, this was going to be their lifelong career. Hence, they made investments in their talents. For this reason, they hung out a lot in high school, given that they attend the same performing arts school in New York. In 2011, the website of the school even posted an image of the pair way back in 1987. During an interview, Aniston recalled that every day a group of them would go to Chaz’s house after school. Are we going to expect a homecoming or reunion anytime soon?
Maya Rudolph And Gwyneth Paltrow
Former Saturday Night Live host Gwyneth Paltrow and comedian Maya Rudolph have a friendship that dates way back to their childhood. It officially began when their dads met at university for their college degree and eventually became friends. The two grew up together and attended the same school in LA.
They once recalled their years of friendship on an episode of SNL, when Gwyneth initially gave a congratulatory monologue for Maya. Here, she said that the week’s happenings had been close to her heart because one of her closest friends joined her in the show and that she was very proud of the achievement. The Goop founder gushed on about how talented Maya is and how happy she was to be working with her buddy. Having been BFF to each other for decade years, they might be the people who knew each other best in the world.
Spike Lee And Samuel L. Jackson
Filmmaker Spike Lee and famous actor Samuel L. Jackson have had many projects together, so even though they aren’t spotted hanging out off-cam a lot, it’s safe to say that they have shared great experiences and a few laughs together. In the 2019 Academy Awards, the duo was spotted giving each other big hugs as if they were old friends. This confused quite a lot of fans to a certain degree, but the two actually know each other quite well.
They both went to school at Morehouse College, Atlanta, before they made it big in Hollywood. When they started pursuing their careers in entertainment, Spike cast Samuel in some of his films like Do the Right Thing and School Daze. During an interview with Playboy, Jackson revealed that their cordial relationship had lasted for quite a few years. Besides, their wives are friends as well. Their relationship is strengthened by dinners and conversations over and over.
Katherine Heigl And T.R. Knight
Grey’s Anatomy stars Katherine Heigl and T.R. Knight have been friends ever since the hit TV show premiered more than a decade ago. In Knight’s wedding, all of his castmates were invited, but only Heigl canceled all her plans to make sure she was present on his special day. Everyone else was very busy with their equally successful careers. Since the whole cast is close to each other, those who couldn’t make it sent him their love, though.
As Dr. George O’Malley and as Izzie Stevens, the two celebrities rose to fame and built their friendship through the show. When Knight left the show after the fourth season, though, their degree of closeness did not diminish. Knight posted a photo with Heigl on her Instagram and said that she was just happy they met when they were fetuses. The actor was caught up in Broadway, but the two always made time for each other.
Emma Roberts And Lea Michele
Scream Queens created a great friendship between actresses Lea Michele and Emma Roberts. When the two girls met on set, they clicked right away. Not only did they show great chemistry on-screen, but they also formed a connection that transcended beyond their work. Michele always stayed with Roberts to help her find herself. During an interview, Roberts revealed that Michele is the one who can make her keep calm when she starts to get overwhelmed by the responsibility.
Even after the show ended, the ladies made time to hang out and get together to do Pilates, go to the salon, or just talk about life. Emma even gave Lea credit for being the reason she stays grounded when the craziness heightens. She also gives acting advice and shares the things she has learned from Glee and from Broadway, which Emma finds very valuable, especially when she is feeling particularly lost.
Naomi Watts And Nicole Kidman
Knowing people from school really creates a bond like no other. Australian actresses Naomi Watts and Nicole Kidman attended North Sydney Girls’ High School together and knew each other since they were only 13 years old. It was then no surprise that they instantly became best friends when they met on the set of the 1991 film Flirting.
Naomi told people that she and Nicole have been through so much together, and their friendship only grew tighter in time. They also gave a lot of credit to the history they had with each other. To celebrate Kidman’s birthday last year, Naomi wrote that growing up with Kidman, having her close, has been one of the more meaningful aspects of this journey. They and their friends had banana split sundaes and huge smiles on their faces – a simple but golden way to celebrate a golden year!
Ben Affleck And Matt Damon
Growing up with a friend can be an amazing experience because we get to see each other develop into all of our phases. We find friends from where we live, and we find people with the same interests as us. This is what happened with Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, who both hail from Boston. The friends were exposed to the industry after starring with Robin Williams as well as collaborating in screenplay writing for the 1997 hit Good Will Hunting.
Among the bonds in Hollywood, Ben and Matt’s consistently stayed solid. Affleck told Parade that no one understood what he was doing before he met Matt. Matt was the person who gave him confidence to do what he really wanted to do. Indeed, one should give credit where credit is due; and rightfully so, we should acknowledge their long-lasting friendship, which has in one way or another, created entertainment in the form of film.
Kate Winslet and Reese Witherspoon
Neighbors usually have a unique bond with each other. From secret recipes to home insurance, friendly conversations are what strengthen their friendships. It was back in 2007 when Titanic actress Kate Winslet moved into the neighborhood where Legally Blonde star Reese Witherspoon lived. The bored Kate went up to Reese’s house and asked to spend some time together. That night, Kate was alone with her children, so she brought them to Reese’s to play with her kids. They also opened a bottle of wine and enjoyed it together.
From then on, the actresses’ friendship then bloomed. It was really their proximity and convenience that gave them ample opportunities to hang out together. A lot has happened since then, and the celebrity moms have done lots under the sun together. The longstanding friendship between the two actresses has continued to grow over the years.
Nicolas Cage And Sean Penn
Now equally famous, actors Sean Penn and Nicolas Cage tried to make it big in Tinseltown together. The chums met at a time when they were both busy auditioning here and there, trying to get into the Hollywood circle. Sean and Nic became friends as they were both experiencing the same things, and it was helpful that they had each other through those trying times. As we now all know, the duo both became successful eventually.
In 1984, they both got cast in Racing with the Moon. This gave them not only the chance to get a great credit on their resume finally but also the fun opportunity of working together. Before they both the fame and fortune, they had friendship – and it is easily detected in their platonic on-screen chemistry! After having been friends for decade years, they might be the people who understand each other most.
Lauryn Hill and Zach Braff
Artists Zach Braff and Lauryn Hill basically grew up together. They were high school friends in Maplewood, New Jersey, where they graduated from Columbia High School. This was way back in the 1990s when online classes weren’t a thing yet, let alone a concept. Surely beause of this, the bond of the two was more than mere high school acquaintances.
In the Jane magazine, Braff recalled how his friend even came to his bar mitzvah. He and Lauryn were even paired up for a party game called Coke and Pepsi. For the game’s mechanics, you had to assign among each pair who’s going to be called Coke and the other, Pepsi. If the DJ said either of the two nicknames, the other partner had to run and sit on that person. We don’t know if they won, but we sure do think they had a blast!
Robert Pattinson and Tom Sturridge
Hollywood A-listers Tom Sturridge and Rob Pattinson went to school together back when they were kids. They knew each other when they were only 12 years old. School life is the beginning of their longstanding friendship. It’s no wonder that the paparazzi would always catch the duo strolling around the city together or hanging out in a bar.
The two obviously have a very solid bond because even when rumors came around that involved Rob’s then-girlfriend Kristen Stewart and a love triangle between them, the bros were still spending time with each other unfazed. The degree of trust and respect between the two men is really evident, and this is probably brought about by their history. Of course, nothing could stand in the way of Tom and Rob’s shared experiences since their pre-teen years. The bromance between the two handsome actors has continued to grow over the years.
Cameron Diaz and Snoop Dogg
Another pair who surprisingly attended the same school is actress Cameron Diaz and rapper Snoop Dogg, who both went to Long Beach Polytechnic High School. They became close back when they were still in school, only thinking about classes, their social circles, and their young dating lives. As they grew up, they both got out of their shells and made it big in their respective fields. They even showed proper money management skills as they both have substantial net worths thanks to their careers.
Although they don’t hang out as often after high school, the two still embrace each other when they meet. From then until now, these prominent figures haven’t forgotten about their shared history. In separate interviews, they each spoke fondly of their teenage experiences together. Diaz revealed that when they see each other, they were always like, “Poly Jackrabbits!”
Lisa Kudrow and Conan O’Brien
Given credit for helping Friends star Lisa Kudrow get a breakthrough in her career, Conan O’Brien was more than just a boyfriend to Lisa. Though the two comedians used to date, they decided early into their relationship that they were better off as friends, according to Lisa. They were in-sync with each other and their senses of humor. On top of that, the duo knew each other very well. They might be the people who understand each other most. Of course, this means that Lisa and Conan also worked great together, so their relationship was very special nevertheless.
According to the actress, the The Late Show host pushed her to continue her career in acting when she started second-guessing her path after a devastating improv class. We would never have had the iconic Phoebe Buffay without Conan cheering her on, apparently!
Connie Britton and Lauren Graham
Building dreams and plotting out plans together will surely create an unbreakable bond between two people. This was the case with the friendship that bloomed between Lauren Graham and Connie Britton. The now-successful actresses were then taking up a degree in school when they decided that they wanted to pursue a career in show business.
To save up, the girl friends became housemates back when they were just shaping their careers. It seems like they were inseparable at that point because the BFFs went to the same acting classes and ultimately dreamed together. They both soared together as well when they eventually landed big roles and progressed with their respective professions. While Connie and Lauren took their chance on LA in separate paths, they never forgot about each other. After all, all they had back then were each other. The solid friendship between them touched us deeply.
Angelina Jolie and Gwen Stefani
Actress Angelina Jolie and singer Gwen Stefani have an interesting bond. For some reason, they always got pregnant at around the same time. The two met through their former spouses Brad Pitt and Gavin Rossdale, who were close friends. When their kids Shiloh Pitt and Kingston Rossdale were born just one day apart, the couples’ friendship only became stronger! They always hung out along with their kids’ playdates, which was a conscious but exciting decision that they always planned together.
In 2008, the two women got pregnant again. Angie gave birth to twins Vivienne and Knox Pitt while Gwen had Zuma Rossdale – the children were born only a month apart from each other. Naturally, the play dates continued. Then, the birthday parties and all the events kept coming. With their growing families, they probably talked a lot about home security systems and parenting styles as well!
B.J. Novak and John Krasinski
We know both John Krasinski and B.J. Novak from the popular TV show The Office, but the two actors already knew each other ever since they were kids. Both hailing from Newton, Massachusetts, the pair met through Little League. They played together as kids and grew up close to each other. Even when they both landed their roles in the same series, fate still made sure they stayed together.
In fact, Novak was the first person to tell Krasinki that he should consider acting. During an interview, Krasinski heaped praise on Novak. He said, “such a great writer and actor and standup.” who Life really just has a way of bringing two people together, even in the most bizarre of places. The electricity between the two is apparent in how they work together on-screen. Most probably, that kind of magnetic vibe is due to the fact that they have grown together and on each other throughout the years.
Matthew Morrison and Kristen Bell
In this long list of friendships, a lot of secret love stories have been revealed as well. Another hush-hush we will share with you is the brief dating game of Kristen Bell and Matthew Morrison. Back when they were just taking up their degree at New York University, Kristen revealed that they saw each other for a while. In a 2010 interview with US Weekly, she even admitted that Matthew was her favorite part of the hit TV show Glee. She told Us Magazine, “We actually dated very briefly, so I’ll have to say maybe Matt Morrison is my favorite part of Glee for various reasons.”
Since they had a short but impactful history with each other, fame brought them back together. They have been good friends, even as their individual careers took shape. Though Kristen and Matthew haven’t been on the same projects together, they keep in touch and have nothing but praises for each other.
Lenny Kravitz, Nicolas Cage, and Gina Gershon
Who would’ve thought that going to school together could help form a connection that lasts for a lifetime? Lenny Kravitz, Gina Gershon, and Nicolas Cage apparently attended the same high school and even worked together on a school production of Oklahoma! Early on, the three budding performers discovered their love for show business together, and eventually, they all made it big.
Lenny shared in an interview on Late Night with Seth Meyers that he played the drums during the school play while Nicolas and Gina acted. Back then, he said that their teenage selves didn’t think that they would all be famous someday, but it was wonderful to see all of them succeed in their careers. We give credit to their campus production because without it, our trio wouldn’t have bonded and decided to reach their Hollywood dreams.
Jennifer Lopez and Jenna Dewan
We all have our idols to look up to and just people we wished we hung out with. Jenna Dewan always dreamed of being Jennifer Lopez’s friend, so she decided to act on her dream and joined World of Dance. Contact Music said that the reason Jenna really wanted to be on the show was so that she could get close with J. Lo and hang around her role model.
The Step Up star certainly won the Latina pop star over because as soon as Jenna was on the set, she and Jennifer started to get to know each other. They spent a significant amount of time together and eventually became close. It’s a good thing Jenna wasn’t the type of fan to break through Jennifer’s home security system because she would have made a bad impression. She didn’t only get screen time on the reality show but also won a friend in the process.
Penélope Cruz and Salma Hayek
Girlfriends for more than two decades, celebrities Penélope Cruz and Salma Hayek have been gracing not only our screens with their acting skills but also each other’s lives with their friendship. The duo has been known to play pranks on each other and always having a good laugh. Paparazzi shots have stolen photos of them hanging out and enjoying each other’s company a lot.
To add, the BFFs are also very vocal on social media about their love for each other. They fondly call each other “huevos” or eggs as a way of teasing each other about being lazy. Penélope and Salma said they have had so many sleepovers and have woken each other up several times over. Salma even gave Penélope the credit of being her hero as she really made a huge impact in her life. Talk about chicas for life!
Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale
High School Musical stars Ashley Tisdale and Vanessa Hudgens might have been sworn enemies in the popular Disney Channel franchise, but they are actually the best of friends in real life. Though not known to many, the two girls met a year before the movie. They worked together in a Sears commercial and became buddies since then. Their bond definitely went a degree further when they both did HSM, but they already arrived on set as gal pals.
The two celebs haven’t had a chance to work together recently anymore, but pictures of them together still pop up every now and then. They’re always mentioning each other on their social media accounts and are spotted hanging out around the city. On Tisdale’s 35th birthday, Hudgens posted a photo on Instagram, saying that, “Now in our adulthood we busy helping each other decorate and renovate our houses. Lol so happy I have your fun loving spirit by my side in all walks of life.”
Eva Longoria and Mario Lopez
Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria and Dancing with the Stars contestant slash TV personality Mario Lopez are very good friends. They have known each other for a long time, so it was a special moment when Eva decided to make an appearance on the reality show to support Mario. She arrived with a black bedazzled t-shirt that said “Vote for Mario” hidden under her blazer since these were not allowed in the audience area. Sitting next to Mario’s mom, the actress watched the whole thing and cheered him on during his performance.
According to Mario, Eva was like his sister, and that it meant so much to him that she finally had the time to come over and watch him despite her busy schedule. We wonder if Eva gets through Mario’s home security system as well as she did through the show’s!
Lance Armstrong and Matthew McConaughey
In a lot of friendships, heartbreaks are often forces strong enough to make people bond and ultimately be closer to one another. Lance Armstrong broke up with his ex-fiance, singer Sheryl Crow, around the same time Matthew McConaughey broke up with his ex-girlfriend Penélope Cruz. They probably bonded over some tears and nights at the bar because it was from this experience that the two became best buds.
They did everything together, like going to parties, biking or running around the city, and even discussing money management goals. Lance and Matthew said they have a brotherhood that is strong and that their personalities complement each other. In effect, they helped each other through tough times and are still hanging out through the better days. When talked about Lance Armstrong’s doping admission, McConaughey said, “I’m happy for him now. Despite all this outside conflict, he doesn’t have this inner conflict anymore.”
Kate Beckinsale and Victoria Beckham
Posh Spice Victoria Beckham and actress Kate Beckinsale are best buddies who are often seen going out to eat. On top of that, fellow actress Eva Longoria is also one of their gal pals. During Victoria’s 34th birthday, Kate was around to bond with her and her family. Photos were posted that showed they were having a blast celebrating with their husbands, David Beckham and Len Wiseman.
The duo was also spotted attending an LA Galaxy soccer tournament together. Kate was accompanying Victoria as she supported David, though he didn’t win the game. The spouses are obviously close and are spending a lot of time together lately. With a friendship as deep as theirs, Victoria and Kate probably share their experiences on investments, luxurious vacations, and parenting, among other fun adulating stuff! A few years passed, their friendship still remains the same.
Ed Westwick and Chace Crawford
The heartthrobs of Gossip Girl, Chuck Bass and Nate Archibald, were the best of friends in the hit TV series. As it turns out, in real life, actors Ed Westwick and Chace Crawford are actually good friends as well. Back when the show was relatively new, Ed and Chace even shared a place. They became roomies until the series became a hit, and they both got a bigger paycheck.
When they both had enough investment money to buy their own places, the on-screen leading men parted ways and saw each other on set only. Though they are no longer as close as their characters anymore, Ed and Chace still see each other from time to time after the show was over. In 2015, they were spotted together on the red carpet and had a reunion photo taken. The friendship between them can stand the test of time.
Eva Longoria and Victoria Beckham
As mentioned before, Eva Longoria is also one of the best friends of Spice Girl Victoria Beckham. They have shared a lot of memories with each other, including the growth of their own families. In fact, Eva is the godmother of Harper, Victoria’s daughter. Posh Spice, now a fashion designer, is the one who created Eva’s wedding dress. Deeply immersed in each other’s lives, the pair still have slumber parties and even gossip like teens.
They talk about their love lives, family lives, and even adult matters like mortgage rates, house upkeep, and parenting styles. Originally, the pair became friends when the Beckhams moved to America permanently. Ever since then, their bond has just strengthened even more. Victoria revealed that she received a gold and diamond evil eye bracelet from Eva which can protect her from any wrong-doing. Just like the rest of you, we look forward to more updates online about their adventures!
Jenny McCarthy and Chelsea Handler
Some friendships are quiet bonds, but Jenny McCarthy and Chelsea Handler love to talk about each other! In an interview with HuffPo, Jenny recounted one of her favorite stories about Chelsea. The actress fell pretty badly in front of everyone one time in a show, but Chelsea came to the rescue and told everyone that she dared Jenny to do it in exchange for a big amount from her credit score to donate to charity.
It was such a superhero moment, and Jenny could not thank her BFF enough for doing what she did. Only a real friend would ever do such a thing. The pair continues not only to entertain people through the work that they do but also to inspire a lot of friendships around the world. To think that this all started with a quirky accident! They seem destined to meet each other.
Taraji P. Henson and Mary J. Blige
Being there for your friend means acting as the shoulder she could cry on, being there to celebrate her victories with her, and stepping up to give moral support when she needs it the most. Mary J. Blige was around to hype up her BFF Taraji P. Henson when she finally received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last year. Blige spoke great things about her friend during the event. She said that Taraji was the light that she needed when her days were nothing but dark.
A huge source of support, Taraji was always one call away from Blige, so Blige had to be on this occasion to celebrate a win with her too because she deserved it. Taraji also told Oprah Mag that she credits Just Fine, Mary’s hit song, as her life’s inspiration. They will never let slip a chance to make their friendship deeper.
Tyra Banks and Kimora Lee Simmons
When two people come from a place that is similar to each other’s experiences, it is not surprising that their bond would be powerful. Tyra Banks and Kimora Lee Simmons met when they were both just aspiring models who longed for a great career in the fashion industry. When they were both just starting out, the hopeful ladies became friends. As new models, they helped each other get better in both their careers and their personal lives.
Now both successful, the pair haven’t let go of the special bond that they have created back when they were still young. Tyra even considers Kimora to be like family. Besides, Tyra was the maid of honor in Kimora’s wedding. Things have changed, and they both definitely have a higher limit on their credit cards now, so their shopping dates could last so much longer!
Sanaa Lathan and Regina Hall
Great friends for more than two decades, Regina Hall and Sanaa Lathan prove that real friendships can stand the test of time. The two have been buds ever since they were just starting to bloom into their respective careers. A little competition even happened here and there between the two girls as they have auditioned for the same roles several times already. This did not get in the way of their relationship with each other, though, as they have always been supportive of each other.
In 2013, they both got film credits in the movie The Best Man Holiday, where they played two friends. Although Regina always pushes herself to try harder, she once told Sanaa that she was planning to become a nun. It’s safe to say that these roles paved the way for greater feats, though, because their bond in real life is definitely just as strong.
Andy Cohen and Sarah Jessica Parker
Fashion icons Andy Cohen and Sarah Jessica Parker don’t only look to each other for fashion advice but also hold each other dear as close friends. In one interview, Andy spoke lovingly about SJP. He said that she is one of the best people he has ever met in his life because she never forgets you and is always there for you when you need her.
The pair met when Andy was a producer on The Morning Show. When they first spoke, they instantly fell in love with each other platonically and decided to see each other more. Even during current pandemic, Cohen and Parker’s friendship is as solid as before. Their friendship is now a lot about fashion, but they also share everything else that is happening in their lives, from their love lives to their home security secrets.
Priyanka Chopra and Meghan Markle
Meghan Markle might have had her royal duties as the Duchess of Sussex for a while, but before she married the prince, she and Priyanka Chopra were co-actors in the hit TV series Suits. They met on set and eventually got very close with each other. Ultimately, the pair started to hang out and do girl things like talk about anything and everything under the sun, go on spa and shopping dates together, as well as speak good words about each other.
Priyanka was even gushing over how perfect Meghan would be as a royal when she was just about to marry Prince Harry. Despite their busy separate lives, the co-actors turned buddies support each other to a massive degree. Though life is tough as public figures, it’s reassuring to know that they have each other’s backs all the time. Having been friends for quite a few years, they might be the people who can understand each other most.
Sofia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon
Stars of Hot Pursuit Sofia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon got more than just great film credits from the movie that they starred in together but also a friendship that would last them a lifetime. After the filming of the movie, they found themselves looking for each other’s company a lot, so they ended up bonding over the usual things two girlfriends would do.
They are very active on social media, and they both talk about each other too. They have posted instances where Sofia made Reese try Columbian coffee and do a Latin dance. The on-screen twosome also does each other’s hair and makeup for events sometimes. Seemingly joined at the hip, Sofia and Reese come in coordinating outfits, take selfies, travel around the world, and even post Dubsmash videos together. They always share smiles with each other. They are true friends in all senses of the word.
Mariska Hargitay And Hilary Swank
Being friends for years means being comfortable doing silly things with each other. Celebrities Mariska Hargitay and Hilary Swank have been besties for over a decade. The two actresses surely did not hold back when they were being photographed during the Hamptons Magazine event. They posed on the red carpet, but they didn’t leave the photographers with just the standard smile and hand on the hips. They did wacky poses and even staged a jump shot together.
The long-time BFFs were really having fun, the athleisure line that Hilary put up with her own investment money. They are usually spotted together, chuckling at the most ridiculous things, in A-list Hollywood events and in the big basketball games they watch. Besides, they not only share smiles with each other but also sadness. In 2006, Hilary ended her marriage to Chad Lowe. After that she had gone through a very difficult time. Without Mariska Hargitay’s support, her life would be quite different from now.
Scarlett Johansson And Jack Antonoff
The Secret high school sweethearts Jack Antonoff and Scarlett Johansson used to attend the same high school. Scarlett was already exposed to the entertainment world as a child star, but when she entered high school, she started dating Jack. The two even went to the prom together! How sweet they were! Soon, they lost touch because Scarlett’s career was taking off. Scaelett Johansson was nominated for two Oscars for two separate films this year. Jack Antonoff began to focus on producing. He also became a member of the band Fun. They both have risen to the top of their fields.
According to a classmate of theirs, Jack Antonoff and Scarlett Johansson broke up after graduation, but they stayed friends even when they both became renowned. Jack and Scarlett may have their own lives, own houses, and their own financial advisors now, but their high school romance made them closer friends as adults.
Madonna And Debi Mazar
Madonna and Debi Mazar have been best friends with each other for almost 30 years even before Madonna cut a record. Madonna and Debi Mazar met in a nightclub elevator. Among a series of random encounters, theirs was a pretty important one as that moment led to a beautiful friendship. Sometime in the ‘80s, the two celebrities were on the same building in New York. They weren’t big-time stars yet as Madonna was just starting to build her career while Debi was working as a makeup artist.
In an interview with Huff Post Live, Debi said that she and Madonna were very close friends even before they had to deal with paparazzi and home security systems. For more than three decades, they have been sharing their successes with each other. After Madonna’s meteoric rise to fame, they no longer had enough time to meet each other and share their life with each other. However, true friendships stand the test of time.
Mel Gibson And Robert Downey Jr.
Sometimes, people come into our lives for a reason. Though the meeting might be spontaneous, it doesn’t make the impact any less meaningful. The friendship between actors Mel Gibson and Robert Downey Jr. is one to look up to. They met on the set of Air America back in 1990. In the movie, they played as best buddies but when it ended, they became real friends too.
The pals have been very reassuring towards each other, especially through the darkest days that they both went through as public figures and as people. They both had to deal with lawyers at a certain point in their careers, but they were always one call away for support and encouragement through all the trials that they had to face. It’s quite comforting to know that you have someone to lean on even as the cameras turn off.
Cara Delevingne And Rihanna
Both respected stars in their own fields, singer Rihanna and supermodel Cara Delevingne have formed a strong bond. The girlfriends have been BFFs since they met at a fashion show. Since then, they have always been there for each other, no matter where they were. In one of Rihanna’s interviews, she said that Cara was the kind of friend who was ready to listen anytime and anywhere with no questions asked. She was always ready with sound advice as well, according to the RnB star.
The pair’s friendship went a degree farther as they both starred in Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. When Rihanna turned 30 years old, Cara even posted pictures of them together on her Instagram and captioned it with a sweet greeting. The lovely friendship between them has continued to grow over the years.
Wes Anderson And Owen Wilson
When movie legends Owen Wilson and Wes Anderson were just taking up their degree at the University of Texas, Austin, they shared a dorm room together. Ever since they shared bunk beds, their lives and profession led them to meet all the time. They helped each other build their careers, and the duo launched each other into superstardom just the same.
The first acting role Owen had was in Wes’ film Bottle Rocket, which got recognition for being one of the best films of the ‘90s, according to Martin Scorsese. After that, Owen was also cast in other successful Wes Anderson films like Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, Rushmore, The Darjeeling Limited, The Royal Tenenbaums, and The Grand Budapest Hotel. This is not an uncommon thing for directors to cast the same person in most of their filmography, though! Muses and long-time collaborators make up the industry, and we guess Wes has found his inspiration in Owen.
Beyoncé And Kelly Rowland
Before Beyoncé became the queen that she is now, she was a part of the iconic Destiny’s Child, which she formed with her best friend, Kelly Rowland. The two were inseparable during and after work. They clearly had a great relationship with each other, and it was their friendship that urged them to pursue their dreams together. Originally called Girls Tyme, their girl group became a big hit during the ‘90s. Soon, the group disbanded, and Beyoncé pursued a solo career.
They have spent most of their lifetime with each other. Although they are not a team anymore, the feelings they shared together will never fade. After so many difficulties and hardships, they must be the best reader of each other’s heart. When both of them at a very young age, kelly had lived in the Knowles for a while. During that time, Beyoncé and her family influenced Kelly a lot. They taught Kelly to embrace her beauty, which made her become more confident.
Regina King And Gabrielle Union
Some friendships stay afloat superficially with some gossip or common interests, but Regina King and Gabrielle Union became closer than ever because of a near-death experience. Regina King is best known for her role as Mary Jenkins’s daughter in 227. Gabrielle Union is not only an actress but also a voice artist, activist, and author. They were both in Bermuda to spend some quality time with each other when they met an accident at sea. While snorkeling, Gabrielle almost drowned, but Regina was quick to jump to her rescue. Eventually, this saved her life.
The two women have been friends for a while now, but this dramatic experience is definitely one for the books. An incident like this has just locked their link with each other forever. Even though they’re both covered by insurance, we’re glad that the celebrities had one another for safety. That’s what friends are for, after all.
Judd Apatow And Adam Sandler
As we have learned in various sitcoms, roommates always share the best bonds with each other since they go through crazy antics, memorable experiences, and important milestones together. When Adam Sandler and Judd Apatow first moved to Los Angeles, they shared an apartment as they were just building their careers. Before moving to Los Angeles, Judd Apatow had gone through a difficult period.
In an interview with 60 Minutes, Judd shared about how he and Ad m used to fight over who gets to use the bathroom first and about who is more good looking than the other. Although this was a tough period for both of them, they didn’t feel frustrated because they were not alone. Not only happiness, they also shared their sadness with each other. Both actors were trying to make it big in comedy so they wrote jokes together and did stand-up comedy at night. As a matter of fact, they became famous from then on.
Liv Tyler And Kate Hudson
Daughter of Aerosmith member Steven Tyler, Liv Tyler, and daughter of actress Goldie Hawn, Kate Hudson, have been friends since they were just toddlers. Their parents were good friends, so they became best buds as kids. As they grew up, Liv and Kate became closer and closer. Up to date, they are still one of our major #bestiegoals inspiration.
The BFFs shared important milestones together as they both went to Crossroads School for Arts & Sciences in Los Angeles, and both rose to fame when they earned their film credits in Dr. T. and the Women in 2000. During an interview, Tyler revealed that she and Hudson always meet at 2 or 3 o’clock. If there is a big event, they will drink champagne and do hair. More than two decades of friendship has been shared by these two celebrities. Without a doubt, they share everything with each other – from secrets down to shopping decisions!
Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly
Famous Hollywood actors Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly may be regulars on our favorite comedy shows and movies, but they also have their own thing going on behind the scenes. They have been best friends for years, and the friendship really shows through all the projects they have done together. The chums have worked together in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, and Step Brothers.
Before doing comedy, John used to be cast in dramas. When he made the gradual switch, however, he was welcomed with open arms by Will. This might be one of the reasons why he loves Will to the degree of calling their partnership the reason “why we were put on this Earth.” They has passed happiness not only to their audience but also to each other over the years.
Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox
The Friends stars Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox are known to be besties even behind the camera. They always speak fondly of each other in interviews and on social media. The BFFs are also often seen bonding over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. They became close while they were doing the smash-hit TV series Friends, but even after the sitcom ended, they still got together and hung out a lot.
The friendship between them has continued to grow for decade years. When Jen celebrated her 50th birthday, Courteney posted a sweet message saying that things got “brighter” the day she was born into the world. The degree of friendship that the actresses show oozes with love and a deep sisterhood. They continue to inspire people even after their roles as Rachel and Monica have ended.
