Interested about celebrity friendships? Just like us, celebrities find comfort in friends who stick with them through thick and thin and who they get to share their personal life and interests with. And in some cases, their closest pal happens to be a celebrity too. Which famous duos are we talking about?
Let’s take a look at Hollywood’s Top Celebrity Friendships
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler
There’s no denying their on-screen chemistry, but did you know that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have been friends for more than 20 years? Yes, that’s right. The two first met in 1993 at an improv class in Chicago. They went on to appear on “Saturday Night Live,” co-anchoring the Weekend Update segment. Then they got into movies and worked together on comedic hits such as “Mean Girls” and “Baby Mama.” And while they eventually starred in individual sitcoms, the pair reunited to host the 2013 and 2014 Golden Globes.
We hope they don’t stop here! If Amy’s wish (that her two sons marry Tina’s two daughters) comes true, then we can expect many more years of laughs from the “Tina and Amy” tandem.
Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore
Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore are as close (and inseparable) as they are on “Charlie’s Angels.” The two knew each other since their teenage years but they never really got a chance to bond until they worked on the film.
Two “Charlie’s Angels” movies later, Cameron and Drew became as tight as ever. Now they are often seen shopping, vacationing and attending music festivals together. Of their bond, Drew says, “We just spend so much time having fun and laughing together. That’s what true friendship is about.”
Brad Pitt and George Clooney
Brad Pitt and George Clooney share more than just good looks. The two are actually very good friends.
Brad and George hit it off right after they met on the set of the first “Ocean’s 11” movie back in 2001. Having shot two more “Ocean’s 11” films and “Burn After Reading,” they grew even closer.
Ever wondered what they bond over? Well, the two have a lot in common. Brad and George are both passionate about philanthropy and social causes. They both love riding motorcycles. And they both enjoy playing pranks on each other.
Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox
Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox became best friends in real life while playing best friends on screen for 10 years. They stayed close even after their sitcom “Friends” ended, standing by each other through their respective divorces.
But just how tight are they? The duo is often spotted going on vacations together. Courteney made Jennifer the godmother of her daughter, Coco. And Jennifer has admitted that she has slept in Courtney’s guest room on a number of occasions. Theirs is truly one of Hollywood’s most famous celebrity friendships.
Ben Affleck and Matt Damon
“Good Will Hunting” introduced Ben Affleck and Matt Damon to the public, but the two have known each other long before their film careers took off. Friends since little league, the two moved to Los Angeles together in hopes of making it big in Hollywood. And so they co-wrote, co-starred and co-directed “Good Will Hunting” in 1997.
Despite the individual fame and success they have garnered since, Ben and Matt remain best buddies and their families often hang out together. Professionally, they are teaming up once again for Project Greenlight, an HBO series featuring first-time filmmakers.
Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts
Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts are called the “Aussie Posse” for good reason: The two Australian actresses have been gal pals for years. They first met at an audition for a bikini ad that neither of them got. From then on, they developed a friendship and have supported each other through the highs and lows of their careers and personal lives.
It’s not every day that you see celebrity friendships stand the test of time. So we tip our hats to these real-life duos and hope that nothing ever breaks their bond.
