There’s an idea flying around that relationships between Hollywood stars don’t last long. But believe or not celebrity friendships can sometimes be immune to the test of time. They plow through all the struggles our regular normal people friendships have to plow through, and they make it out a lot stronger than they were before. The celebrity friendships below are a prime example of that.
Liv Tyler and Kate Hudson
Because having celebrity parents means you get to meet other celebrity kids, these two have been friends pretty much since birth.
Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift
You’d think being musicians that cater to the same audience would cause some animosity, but not between these two!
Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox
They met on the set of Friends, where they played best friends, so now they’re actual best friends. Such friendship, much appreciation, wow!
Justin Timberlake and Ryan Gosling
They met in the Mickey Mouse club and have been friends since. Gosling even stayed with Timberlake’s family for some time when he had troubles with his citizenship.
Kim Kardashian and Nicole Richie
Two people that became famous for no actual reason (sex tape, daughter of Lionel Richie), so it was pretty much bound to happen they’d become friends sooner or later. They also occasionally argue on social media, because bad publicity is still publicity!
Cara Delevigne and Rihanna
Apparently they’ve been friends for a few years now. They both like clubbing, big parties, and haute couture modeling shows. Rihanna, being the grown up in this relationship, is sort of a mentor for lil’ Cara, helping her with career choices and any other problems she may have.
Kanye West and Jay Z
While it might seem hard to be friends with Kanye, Jay Z managed to pull it off. These guys are some influential BFFs! We hope the recent bad blood is forgiven soon!
Keira Knightley and Sienna Miller
They met on the set of The Edge of Love (it’s probably a chick flick), and they’ve been friends ever since.
Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner
They met on the set of Game of Thrones, playing sisters, and now they’ve become best friends. And despite all the assassin training and being thrown around Westeros, they’re still besties. Do we still use the word “besties”? I’m getting old.
Katy Perry and Allison Williams
These girls met a couple of years ago and, according to Allison, they just clicked. They’ve been homegirls ever since.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire
These guys met over 25 years ago and they’re still talking. I saw Tobey play Spider-Man a few years back and I want nothing to do with that guy. I guess Leo’s a more patient man than I am.
Mel Gibson and Robert Downey Jr.
True friendship is standing by your pal even when his drugs and/or divorce shenanigans are ruining his public appeal. These guys embody that loyalty perfectly.
Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds
They met on the set of The Proposal back in 2009 (that’s when America having a black president was still somewhat new) and they’ve been good friends ever since.
Ben Affleck and Matt Damon
Ben and Matt didn’t meet during a movie production. Ben was 8, Matt was 10, and they were both in Little League. Not too long after that game, they discovered they had a lot in common and became besties, just like the rest of the celebs on this list. You may have seen at least 20 movies starring both of them. That’s their thing, and we love it!
