Celebrities and Their BFFs
Your best friends will always be by your side no matter what. Even though some people in your life will leave you, your best friends will stick with you through thick and thin. They are the ones who have seen you during the ups and downs of your life, remained with you, and have been a pillar of strength and support.
To their credit, celebrities and their BFFs are just the same. They do have one or more people they see as best friends forever. Apart from all the red carpets and flashy lights, celebrity friendships are admirable. Here are a few celebrity BFFs that show you what it is like to have a best friend in the entertainment industry.
Anna Camp & Brittany Snow
Pitch Perfect is not just an enjoyable musical, but it is also the stepping stone for Anna Camp and Brittany Snow to become BFFs. These two played Aubrey and Chloe, who were the co-leaders for the Barden Bellas. Well, it seems that their on-screen chemistry translated into real life. According to Snow, she was the one who asked Camp out to go on a girl date.
Ten minutes into their trip, they realized that they were meant to form a bond. Fast forward to today, Snow got hitched to Tyler Stanaland back in 2020. Of course, her best friend Anna Camp made an appearance at her bachelorette party as well as her wedding. For sure, these two don’t have to worry about personal loans since both made it big in Hollywood.
Anne Hathaway & Hugh Jackman
The friendship between Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman is quite surprising. The actors first met when Jackman was tapped to be the host for the Academy Awards back in 2009. However, it was during the shooting of Les Miserables that their friendship started to form. With these two A-listers giving it all in their performances, it is not surprising that they have formed a bond behind the screens.
The two joined an online reunion for the movie, and they started to joke about each other. Hathaway threw shade at her friend for his hosting job at the Academy Awards, but she praised him for his performance during their rehearsals. One thing is for sure, even if they need loans in the future, these two are guaranteed to help each other out.
Brad Pitt & Leonardo DiCaprio
There’s no denying that Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio are two of the most handsome men in Hollywood. Aside from that, did you know that they both started out in Growing Pains? DiCaprio appeared in the TV show from 1987 to 1989, while Pitt starred in the series from 1991 to 1992. Although it is hard to pinpoint when these two became friends, we all know that they consider each other like best buds.
Perhaps their friendship started out with going with the same social circle where it is highly likely that they became fast friends. Aside from that, these two have worked together, with their latest being Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood. Kudos to them for putting their investments in their friendship off-screen.
Busy Philipps & Michelle Williams
Busy Philipps and Michelle Williams are the sort of besties you want to have. The two met on the set of Dawson’s Creek back in 1998, and they have remained best friends since then. They have shown nothing but love for one another, which endeared them to their fans even more. In fact, these two know how to hype each other quite often. You can feel the love between these two, just like how we are with our own besties.
Last 2020, Philipps gave a shout-out to Williams on her birthday, stating her joy in choosing the actress as the best person in the world. The two have certainly weathered plenty of storms. To their credit, they definitely know how to give each other a leg up in the entertainment industry.
Chelsea Handler & Jennifer Aniston
You don’t have to be the same with your best friend all the time. In fact, Chelsea Handler and Jennifer Aniston have opposing personalities but ended up being best friends. Even though Handler was known to crack jokes pertaining to Brad Pitt, Aniston’s former husband, the two got along pretty well.
However, there were rumors that the two broke off their friendship since they were rarely seen together. Even if this was true, it seems that they have patched things up. To her credit, Handler spoke of it, stating that they were still friends and that she loved Aniston. Breaking off a friendship is not unusual but what is important is that they were able to renew it after some time apart.
Chrissy Teigen & Kim Kardashian
Chrissy Teigen and Kim Kardashian first crossed paths back in 2010 when they went out on a double date with Teigen’s husband, John Legend, and Reggie Bush. The pair bonded in the bathroom while Teigen assisted Kardashian with her dress. This moment was the start of a beautiful friendship that they managed to maintain today.
Teigen did not let Kanye West’s different beliefs stop them from having a good friendship. With their investments in one another, it is clear that Kardashian has found a staunch supporter in Teigen who has been helping her with her personal problems. Kardashian has recently separated from her husband, and Teigen remarked that she was helping her friend get through it, which is sweet of her.
Drew Barrymore & Adam Sandler
You have probably seen Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler in several movies. If you have watched The Wedding Singer, you’ll know that these two have great on-screen chemistry that will make your heart melt. Although many are shipping these two together, they are just best buds in real life. They are known for their support to one another, and they have managed to maintain a platonic relationship over these past few decades.
We are happy that their investment in their friendship has helped them work in tandem in movies like 50 First Dates as well as Blended. These two know how to make hearts flutter on screen with their undeniable chemistry but prefer to keep their off-screen lives as friends forever.
Drew Barrymore & Cameron Diaz
Most people assume that Hollywood stars Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz first met during the reboot of Charlie’s Angels. However, you might be surprised that they knew each other back when they were teens. In fact, it was over a cup of coffee in the same shop where Barrymore worked when their friendship was formed.
Their friendship was only further strengthened when they were cast in the reboot of Charlie’s Angels, and the rest is history. Diaz, who already retired from acting, appeared as a guest in her BFF’s podcast called The Drew Barrymore Show. It seems that these two are as tight as any sisters out there. Diaz gave credit to her bestie by saying that their friendship was extra special.
Emma Roberts & Lea Michele
You’ve probably spotted these two in the show Scream Queens. Well, these two hit it off right from the start, and their bond blossomed into a long-lasting friendship. Several of their fans have spotted them hanging out in restaurants from time to time. In fact, they had sleepovers too. As you can see, they are not so different from us when it comes to bonding with your best friend.
Aside from that, it was reported that these two got pregnant at the same time and with baby boys too. What a coincidence! This was not planned at all, but it certainly adds more depth to their being best friends— just imagine going through pregnancy with your gal pal. Fortunately, they don’t have to worry about applying for loans for their pregnancy as they both have promising careers.
Emma Stone & Jennifer Lawrence
Who would have thought that Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone are BFFs in real life? It is certainly cosmic as these two are exceptionally talented actresses who have made a splash in Hollywood. The credit goes to Woody Harrelson, who worked with Lawrence in Hunger Games. He was the one who introduced these two stars to one another.
Both actresses hit it off right from the start and have remained best friends ever since. They are often spotted having lunch or even brunch. They go to parties together and are just enjoying their days as best friends often do. What’s more, they have already interviewed each other for different magazines. How cool is that? We are confident that these two will go the distance with their friendship.
Eva Longoria & Victoria Beckham
Hollywood star Eva Longoria, and former Spice Girls Victoria Beckham, became really close in 2007. This was the time when the Beckhams moved to LA. The families decided to celebrate Christmas together, and it was during this time that these two ladies bonded. It is not surprising that their friendship turned to a deeper level over the years.
Aside from having sleepovers, it appears that Beckham was also enjoying dressing up her best friend for different award shows. This is not surprising since Beckham has her own clothing line, which she established using her investment money. No wonder the actress looked stunning every time she stepped out on the red carpet. Kudos to these two for supporting one another after all these years.
Jada Pinkett-Smith & Queen Latifah
Jada Pinkett-Smith and Queen Latifah are as tight as sisters even before they became famous. They first met in a club in Baltimore where Queen Latifah was performing on stage. Pinkett-Smith was blown away by the rapping style of Queen Latifah that she convinced the promoter to introduce her to the rapper. The rest, as they say, is history.
These two stars quickly signed up for the movie Girl’s Trip, which included stars like Tiffany Haddish and Regina Hall. They had such a blast during the filming stage, which is also the reason why they got super close. If it wasn’t for Pinkett-Smith’s initiative, things would have gone differently. To their credit, they are still having a good time together.
Jaden Smith & Justin Bieber
The friendship between Jaden Smith and Justin Bieber started in 2011. It was after they collaborated for the Never Say Never track. They got back together to work on Fairytale. Aside from that, Smith also appeared in Bieber’s Purpose World Tour at the Madison Square Garden to perform, you guessed it, Never Say Never.
This duo have certainly come a long way since 2011. But this doesn’t mean that they have forgotten their friendship. In fact, Smith posted a photo of himself holding a mic on his Instagram account. His best friend commented that he thought he was Smith’s boyfriend. The rapper replied that he was. Their investments in their “bromance” are quite amusing to see, plus they still have each other’s backs after all these years.
Jennifer Aniston & Courteney Cox
Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox being best friends is not surprising as these two have worked together on the set of Friends for several seasons. Aside from their sitcom making history on television, their friendship has certainly blossomed over the years. In fact, even though Friends finally bid goodbye in 2004, Cox and Aniston are continuously cheering each other on.
Cox has once stated that she and Aniston are inseparable as they always find time to laugh about the goings-on in their lives. With the kind of investments that they have put into their friendship, it is only logical to see that their off-screen friendship is as successful as in their show. Kudos to these two for keeping their friendship alive.
Jennifer Aniston & Jason Bateman
Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman first met on Simon. Although the actress was not part of the series, they still have a close relationship even today. Aniston once said that the actor had a different attitude towards her back in the day, but this did not stop Bateman from forming a bond with the Friends alum.
As a true testament to their friendship, it was Aniston who gave a speech when Bateman was given a Hollywood Walk of Fame award. With over three decades of friendship between them, it is clear that these two have withstood the test of time. To their credit, they even took their friendship to work as they starred in five films together. How cool is that?
Jennifer Lawrence & Adele
Hunger Games actress, Jennifer Lawrence, has always been a fan of British singer Adele, ever since her song Chasing Pavements came out. Like any fangirl, Lawrence tried to get close to the star back in 2013 at the Oscars. For sure, she managed to introduce herself to Adele and made friends with her because, in 2018, Adele posted a cute photo of her and Lawrence as well as Cameron Diaz on her Instagram. It was a nod to the women who had roles in her life.
This kind of friendship is one that we should achieve. Women empowering other women is such a wonderful thing to see. To their credit, they are definitely showing how much support they are giving each other in their respective projects.
Jennifer Lawrence & Aziz Ansari
Actors Jennifer Lawrence and Aziz Ansari revealed that they have a close friendship after they were spotted hanging out with Amy Schumer and Chris Pratt. These two were often doing things together like writing or taking breaks even. In fact, Lawrence decided to give Ansari a piggyback ride on the way out of a Saturday Night Live party.
Many are wondering if there is anything romantic going on between the two, but they are just two single people who are out to have some fun. In fact, they were seen on a friendly date during Valentine’s Day. Those who saw them said that they looked like they were having fun. These two are known for their investments in their careers, and being friends added another layer of happiness in their lives.
Jennifer Lopez & Jenna Dewan
Imagine what it’s like to be friends with the person you have looked up to ever since you can remember. Well, this is exactly how the friendship between Jennifer Lopez and Jenna Dewan started. Dewan was a huge fan of the singer and said that she looked up to JLo as her role model. For sure, Dewan was ecstatic after getting invited to the reality TV show World of Dance together with Jennifer Lopez.
They certainly formed a bond after the show that strengthened over the years. In fact, it was Lopez who helped Dewan get back on the dating pool after her split with her ex-husband, Channing Tatum. To her credit, Lopez acted as the wingman for Dewan when she became single. This alone is a sure sign that these two will be best buddies for life.
Justin Timberlake & Jimmy Fallon
If you are looking for a “bromance” in Hollywood, then look no further than the friendship between comedian Jimmy Fallon and former NSYNC member Justin Timberlake. The two crossed paths at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2002. Fallon was the host of the awards night while Timberlake was a solo performer. The following year, Timberlake appeared in Saturday Night Live together with the comedian.
Fast forward to today, these two have been friends for more than two decades. In fact, they have used their investment money to travel to Africa together! What’s more, these two were caught dancing to Single Ladies back in 2015 at the U.S. Open. We can only imagine what these two talk about, but we are sure that they’re always laughing their heads off.
Kate Hudson & Liv Tyler
Kate Hudson and Liv Tyler are more than friends. In fact, they are practically sisters since they have known each other for a very long time. They were at the Crossroads School for Arts and Sciences, and after getting their degree, the two became fast friends.
Even though they have different social circles, it did not diminish their friendship at all. In fact, they are keen to show how their lives as BFFs evolved over the years by uploading their videos and old photos on their Instagram accounts. Among their videos were them dancing to Aerosmith’s songs. If you scroll through their Instagram accounts, you’ll find pictures of them back in the ’90s too. There’s no doubt that these two can rely on each other in the long run.
Kendall Jenner & Hailey Bieber
Supermodels Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber are BFFs in real life. You can easily see this based on their social media photos. Hailey was actually BFFs with Kylie Jenner before Kendall. Either way, the Jenners found a staunch friend in Bieber. The models created a bond at their first-ever New York Fashion Week. From there, they were often photographed together.
In fact, Bieber and Jenner got matching tattoos which they may have paid with their credit cards. What’s important is that these two got each other’s backs. Jenner even played host to Bieber’s bachelorette party back in 2019. It doesn’t matter what event they go to or what runway they’ll walk on; these two are definitely best friends for life.
Kim Kardashian & Paris Hilton
Before even Kim Kardashian and the rest of her family became household names, she already forged a close bond with socialite Paris Hilton. During the first years of their friendship, she was Hilton’s stylist. Their friendship can be partially credited for putting Kardashian into the spotlight in the mid-2000s. Based on public photos, the two were quite a common sight in various red-carpet events in Hollywood.
However, as the years have passed, their relationship sort of drifted away, which can be attributed to their extremely separate lives at this point, including having respectively successful careers and family duties. They seem to meet each other from time to time, proving that their close bond in the past pretty much exists until now.
Kris Jenner & Jennifer Lawrence
The friendship between Jennifer Lawrence and Kris Jenner became possible because Lawrence was a big fan of the uber-hit reality series Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Given her immense fandom to the series, Lawrence was surprised by Jenner and her team with a birthday cake during the actress’s birthday back in 2015.
Since then, the two have been pretty much best buds. Based on their social media posts and interviews, their friendship has been quite tight as the years have gone by, with even Jenner calling her best bud her “favorite daughter.” One big moment of their friendship was in 2017 when Lawrence gifted Jenner a Porsche as a Christmas gift. Having a highly expensive car as a gift, which can cost many people so many cash loans, is pretty much an undeniable sign that they are friends.
Kristen Stewart & Dakota Fanning
While many people may not associate Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning as long-time friends, it may come as a surprise that these two actresses have been friends ever since childhood. In fact, their relationship had lasted for so long that even they do not know anymore when was the first time they met after being asked during an interview in 2016 with Elle magazine.
Throughout their friendship, the two have managed to work together on a number of films. Perhaps their most notable joint credits were Twilight and The Runaways.

With regards to their friendship, DiCaprio said that he loved Winslet not only for her exceptional talent but also for her great personality. Given the backgrounds of the two, having grown up in the acting industry, it is no surprise that the two hit off as they grew up. The two have regarded their friendship as more of being siblings.
Leonardo DiCaprio & Tobey Maguire
While both Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire may be seen as quite contrasting to many, it is quite surprising that the two have been very close for a long time. Both of them go way back to their time as child actors. Apparently, DiCaprio made the first move by randomly approaching Maguire and asking to be friends with him, which he accepted. A big factor of their friendship is their shared background of growing up in quite dysfunctional families.
Initially, the two competed fiercely on whoever gets more lucrative acting roles. Eventually, the two managed to appear together in several films. It culminated in 2013 with their joint credit in The Great Gatsby, where the two saw themselves as part of the main cast.
Martha Stewart & Snoop Dogg
Everyone never thought that Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg would become close friends. After all, one is more of a family-friendly television personality while the other has been associated with a mature theme. It turned out they became friends after Snoop first appeared on Stewart’s show in 2008. Many thought it was a short-lived kind of bond, but the two had a surprise reunion during the roast of Justin Bieber on Comedy Central about a year later.
Moreover, the two got along together in a number of ways, such as their shared love of movies and constant support for their respective careers. Their friendship became more well-known when they started their own cooking show in 2016. In addition, both have made investments in establishing several business ventures together in recent years.
Matt Damon & Ben Affleck
Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have undeniably created one of the greatest partnerships in modern Hollywood. The two have been very close friends since childhood. However, they only started to collaborate seriously during their days studying for their college degrees. Their first collaboration, a script Damon wrote while in Harvard, eventually ended up being adapted into the film Good Will Hunting, which is regarded as one of the greatest films of the 1990s.
Since Good Will Hunting, the two have seen success after success in their collaborations over the years. Outside of their works, they have been known for their constant lighthearted and comedic jabs at one another. From various talk shows to interviews, the two are never shy about showing the status of their relationship to the public.
Melissa McCarthy & Octavia Spencer
Actresses Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer have been very close friends since the 1990s. During the first time they met, Spencer was a regular watcher of the L.A. comedy group The Groundling, for which McCarthy’s husband Ben Falcone was part of the group. This event was when the two started to establish their friendship. Eventually, they’ve gotten close as friends over the years. However, the two never had any collaborative credits, as the two went on to have separate careers.
Eventually, the two actresses did their first collaborative work in 2021 when they appeared together in the Netflix film Thunder Force. The film became an ode to their friendship, given its premise of two best friends getting superpowers through being injected with a serum.
Millie Bobby Brown & Maddie Ziegler
While Mille Bobby Brown and Maddie Ziegler are not seen together these days, they have been pretty much the best of friends for years now. The two first met each other in 2016. Brown’s fascination with Ziegler, who was a judge on So You Think You Can Dance, can be credited for the start of their friendship. After Brown met Ziegler for the first time, the two quickly established a friendship.
Since their first meeting, the two became the best of friends. One big highlight of their friendship was a sleepover that they had after Ziegler found out that Brown never went to one. Today, despite their hectic and busy schedules, the two still manage to find ways to meet up and bond together.
Mindy Kaling & B.J. Novak
While many people assumed that Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak were meant to be, this was not the case, much to the disappointment of the fans of The Office¸ where they first met on set. Despite this, the two have remained very close friends, even after The Office ended more than ten years ago. During their time on the series, the two developed both on and off-screen chemistry while writing and acting in the show’s episodes, with their work credited for adding spice to their relationship.
Today, the two have been extremely supportive of each other. When Kaling gave birth to her children, Novak became one of the godparents. It seems that in spite of them not being a couple to last, they remained quite close, with their bond ever-strong.
Naomi Watts & Nicole Kidman
Fellow Aussies Naomi Watts and Nicole Kidman have been friends for more than three decades now. The two met in high school when they were attending the Philip Street Theater. During Kidman’s publicized breakup with Tom Cruise, Watts was right alongside her for support. In 2013, in an interview on CBS Sunday Morning, Watts credited Kidman for helping her in her darkest moments throughout her life. She said that without Kidman’s unending support, her career might have been put to a sudden halt in the 1990s.
Today, the two still love each other. Recently, Kidman wished Watts a happy 53rd birthday on social media, celebrating their friendship of 35 years. Despite their closeness, they have never collaborated on work so far.

Since then, they have stuck to each other’s side. According to them, they have the same vibe and energy, which greatly aided in making them closer.
Throughout their relationship, they have never been shy about displaying their affection for one another. While their friendship is quite strong, it also led to them venturing on the business front. The two are joint owners of the winery Fresh Vine Wine, which recently went public on the stock exchange some time in December 2021. Overall, their friendship not only brought them happiness but also a great investment in their business.
Oprah Winfrey & Gayle King
Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King are not only household names on television but also have been very close friends for the past 45 years. Their friendship started in their early 20s when both were employed at WJZ station in Baltimore. Winfrey worked as a news anchor while King was focused on production. As fate had it, the two struck their friendship after a snowstorm hit the area, which necessitated many to use gas to heat up. Winfrey offered King a place to stay in the meantime, which led to them becoming friends.
Throughout their friendship, they have greatly supported each other through their highs and lows. King appeared several times on Winfrey’s show since her first appearance in 1986. In addition, the two have often vacationed together whenever they have time to spare.
Reese Witherspoon & Mindy Kaling
The friendship between Mindy Kaling and Reese Witherspoon began recently, but it seems that they have been quite close now. Their friendship began when they starred together in the movie A Wrinkle in Time. Before that, they had starred in a couple of movies together. They both have had an appearance on each other’s shows, with Witherspoon guest-starring on The Mindy Project and Kaling making an appearance on The Morning Show.
In recent years, their joint credits have expanded. In 2020, the two announced that they are to work together in Legally Blonde 3, with Witherspoon reprising her main role while Kaling is writing the screenplay. While their movie is still in production, it is an addition to the growing list that the two have appeared together on-screen.
Rihanna & Cara Delevingne
While Rihanna and Cara Delevingne have been besties for years, their relationship started out in a rather risqué way. While the two were quite familiar with one another, their relationship began after Delevingne slapped Rihanna’s bum during a fashion show. Despite the naughty and silly display Delevingne made, Rihanna did not mind and began talking great with Delevingne. Eventually, the two became friends.
Today, the two are still good friends. Their various Instagram posts and joint red-carpet appearances are testaments to the closeness of their relationship. The two have stated that they have supported each other considerably whenever they face a problem. In addition, they had a joint acting credit after starring in the sci-fi movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.
Salma Hayek & Penélope Cruz
Actresses Salma Hayek and Penélope Cruz have been besties for quite some time now. They first knew each other in the late 1990s over the phone. Shortly thereafter, they met face-to-face for the first time and hit it off. They appeared in one movie together in 2006 titled Bandidas, which is credited for solidifying their relationship to being the best of friends.
Over the years, the duo’s bond has been stronger than ever and shows no signs of falling apart. At one point, Hayek considered Cruz as her “soul sister.” In early 2021, Hayek left fans wild when she posted a selfie with Cruz. She shared a side-by-side snap with her best friend, for which they used a filter that complemented their accessories and added a touch of lightness to their eyes.
Selena Gomez & Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez have been great friends since the very beginning of their careers. The two first met in 2008, and the commonality they had at the time was that they were dating the Jonas Brothers. Swift was dating Joe Jonas, whereas Gomez was dating Nick. While the two girls eventually called it quits with the brothers, they agreed that the best thing to have come out of those relationships was the friendship that they developed.
The duo was first captured together at the premiere of Another Cinderella Story. In August 2015, Gomez performed alongside Swift on the latter’s 1989 tour. Since then, the two have been quite loving to each other. Often, they have been supportive of one another and have credited each other for helping in both career and personal problems.
Shay Mitchell & Ashley Benson
While Pretty Little Liars (PLL) has been wrapped up in 2017, most of the cast have maintained a friendly relationship. However, co-stars Shay Mitchell and Ashley Benson had a much closer relationship than most of their castmates. They play characters Hanna and Emily on-screen. Thanks to their close friendship, the two were branded as “Hanily” by the show’s fans. They’ve also been dubbed as “ButtahBenzo”— Buttah for Mitchell (a wordplay on “Shay Butter”) while “Benzo” is for Benson.
While the two have been pretty busy in their respective work, they surprised their fans when they appeared together in a 2020 TikTok video. Since then, the two, along with their PLL castmates, reunited in a live stream in 2021 to raise money and investment for the COVID-19 relief effort.
Sofia Vergara & Reese Witherspoon
Sofia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon would immediately come to mind when talking about celebrity friendship. The two beautiful and talented actors first met when they filmed their movie, Hot Pursuit. Since then, they have already shown the world what real friendship looks like. They have cultivated an equally beautiful friendship to the degree that they introduced each other to exciting new things like Columbian coffee and Latin dance. They also filled each other’s glam squad, mastered coordinating outfits, and became the best travel buddies.
Sadly, their movie Hot Pursuit flopped at the box office. Nonetheless, the two actresses turned this into a funny brutal blame game. Witherspoon jokingly complained about Vergara’s accent, while Vergara complained about Witherspoon’s lack of physical appeal.
Sophie Turner & Maisie Williams
When auditions for Game of Thrones took place, Maisie Williams was only 12 years old, and Sophie Turner was 13. The series was both of their first big breaks. They had the unique experience of only being a year apart in age and living out their teenage years on screen.
Game of Thrones lasted for eight years, and it was evident that some friendships were built between cast members. The most notable mention goes to Turner and Williams. Their friendship brought them to the degree that people thought they were in a romantic relationship. They celebrate “friendiversary” and even got the date inked onto their arms to remember forever. Alongside their matching inks, they also have a nickname for their friendship.
Spike Lee & Samuel L. Jackson
Samuel Jackson is an A-list actor and film producer. His breakthrough role was the struggling guy Gator in Spike Lee’s Jungle Fever. He also appeared in some of Spike’s movies, including School Daze, Do The Right Thing, Mo’ Better Blues, Oldboy, and Chi-Raq. Evidently, these projects led them to become so close. The two also earned their degree from Atlanta’s Morehouse College, with Lee graduating in 1979 and Jackson in 1972.
It was reported that some issues between the two caused them to stray away far from each other for a while. Thanks to their lovely wives, who were also close friends, they slowly repaired their relationship. That was the time when Lee offered Jackson a new project on his then-upcoming movie, Oldboy.
Taraji P. Henson & Mary J. Blige
Isn’t it lovely to know that two of your favorite celebrities are friends? Well, Mary J. Blige and Taraji P. Henson are just like that. Henson has been a Hollywood veteran for over 20 years and has come a long way since she debuted in the 1998 film Streetwise. Meanwhile, Blige is an R&B legend who landed her first record deal in 1992 and released her debut and now classic album, What’s the 411?, the following year.
According to Billboard, Henson and Blige’s friendship began when they worked together on the 2009 film I Can Do Bad All by Myself. Since then, the two superstars have supported one another in their careers, giving credit to each other. Whether it’s having fun, working together, or supporting one another’s events, these two Hollywood heavy-hitters always have each other’s backs.
Tina Fey & Amy Poehler
Amy Poehler and Tina Fey first met in 1993 in a class at the legendary Chicago comedy location, iO Theater (formerly known as ImprovOlympic). We should give credit to the theater’s co-founder, Charna Halpern, who introduced them to each other, as this marks the beginning of the duo’s friendship. Through the years, their friendship grew, and they became closer to each other, almost inseparable.
The two remarkable comedians and actresses starred in Saturday Night Live. They also shared the big screen in movies like Big Mama and Sisters and became the first female co-anchors of Weekend Update. From 2013 to 2015, they co-hosted the Golden Globes. Fey and Poehler’s almost 30 years of friendship is indeed what each one of us dreamed of having.
Vanessa Hudgens & Ashley Tisdale
Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale have been good friends for almost 15 years. They first met in an audition for a TV commercial as kids. Their friendship solidified when they co-starred in High School Musical and have been through a lot since.
In the musical, Tisdale starred as the sassy Sharpay Evans, who is the rival of the sweet girl-next-door, Gabriela Montez, played by Hudgens. Their on-screen feud left the fans believing that it is not possible for them to get along in real life. The two actresses proved them wrong. Behind the cameras, their bond is a whole lot different from shopping, touring the world together, and having long nights of gossip. They also might be using their credit cards a lot when they are together.
