Famous Best Friend Celebrities Who Rule Hollywood
The famous 1994 sitcom Friends gave many of us an example of true friendship. Good friends can challenge us, support us, make us better. The people, whom we invite in our lives can teach us how to forgive, make conversations, and how to laugh like nothing matters anymore. They are the ones who push us out of our comfort zones and open their arms to catch us when we fall.
Although having good friends is important, sometimes it’s very hard to keep them. It’s especially hard for those, who have been under the spotlight for a big chunk of their lives. But despite all of the nasty rumors and big scandals, these starts managed to keep their bonds as tight as ever.
While many of theese duos make sense, some of them seem quite bizarre. Well, Hollywood is a strange place. Check out the famous friends below.
1. Patrick Swayze and Christopher Howell
Christopher Howell and Patrick Swayze worked together on three films but it’s not the only thing that made them bond. Christopher revealed that their mutual passion for horses made the friendship blossom. After Patrick Swayze’ death in 2009, Howell said in his interview with AS magazine:
I have always had a special place in my heart for Patrick.
2. Dolly Parton and Porter Wagoner
In 1967 Dolly Parton was invited by Porter Wagoner to co-host his TV show. With time, they gained a lot of success and popularity for their duets. When Parton decided to leave, she wrote a touching song in order to show him how much she appreciated the time they worked together, titled “I Will Always Love You”, which became a huge hit, and later, Whitney Houston’s signature song.
3. George Clooney and Brad Pitt
Ocean’s Eleven was a great movie, but for George Clooney and Brad Pitt, it has a special meaning. It is on the set of that film when their bromance started. They both are known to lovingly prank each other every time they work together.
4. Matt Damon and Ben Affleck
These two are not a surprise. Damon and Affleck became friends when they were growing up in Boston. After winning two Oscars nearly 20 years ago for Good Will Hunting, which they both co-wrote and starred in, the two are still very close. They have set up a production company together and created their own TV show, Project Greenlight.
5. Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon
Jimmy Fallon always seems like such a nice guy who has lots of friends. He surely does, and one of them is Justin Timberlake, who’s been on his show numerous times. They often do comedy sketches together, make the History of Rap songs, and even created their own #Hashtag video that went viral.
6. Beyoncé and Gwyneth Paltrow
Gwyneth Paltrow met Beyoncé at a benefit in New York back when she was still married to a Coldplay leading singer Chris Martin. And even though, the marriage between Paltrow and Martin came to an end, her friendship with Beyoncé is still going strong.
7. David Beckham and Snoop Dogg
Who would have thought Snoop Dogg and David Beckham are friends! But they are actually pretty close. The rapper revealed that Beckham is one of the first people who gets to listen to his new records before the label gets it. They became friends after starring together in an animated short film based on A Christmas Carol. Snoop once commented on their bond:
Me and him came together on one night and we just became friends and we’ve just been friends ever since.
8. Hillary Clinton and Meryl Streep
The Oscar-winning actress and the Secretary of State met each other at the Kennedy Center Honors gala where they posed for a mutual selfie.
Streep even compared herself to Clinton saying:
I find a lot of similarities. We’re roughly the same age, we both have two brothers — mine are annoying — we both grew up in middle-class homes with spirited, big-hearted mothers who encouraged us to do something valuable and interesting with our lives. We both went from public high schools to distinguished women’s colleges ... We both went on to graduate school at Yale.
In turn, the former First Lady said she’s “always admired” the actress and joked:
I’m just glad she didn’t do a movie called The Devil Wears Pantsuits.
