Famous twosomes are all the rage right now. We mere commoners love getting a glimpse of the rich and famous as they publicly develop bonds with other elite members of Hollywood. Let’s be honest, when you’re a somebody, being seen with your BFF is like a pastime for celebrities. Whether they met on the set of their latest film or have known each other from the very first project that kick started their careers, Hollywood is infamous for celebrity pairings. Sometimes those pairings are platonic, sometimes romantic, and sometimes just plain fun. Celebrity best friends are often a pleasant reminder that the A-list scene can be full of meaningful bonds and hopefully steamy ones too (at least that’s what we’re going for here). Okay, we admit it, we added that one in there. Whether it’s girls getting Platonically chummy with guys or lovely ladies who cozy up to their fellow females these friendships are real. Going to the gym? Bring your bestie! Going to the store? Bring your bestie! Going to the club? Bring your… well, you get the point.
It seems that if you’re a star in the limelight you can’t go anywhere without the paparazzi snapping a photo of you- all the more reason for you to be in good company during those digital ambushes! But c’mon now, we’ve all seen a high-profile dynamic duo out in public and thought, “Man, I wish they were dating!” There are so many down-to-earth, sexy, or funny pairs out there- why shouldn’t they be couples? That’s why we’ve compiled a list of all the celeb pairings we wish weren’t so platonic after all. You know what we’re talking about- the hope that a famous friendship that will turn into the next L.A. love story. Hey, you can always make a new friend, but having a grand romance– come on, nobody should pass that up. So here’s those celeb BFF’s we think would make great lovers.
15. Cara Delevingne and Nat Wolff
Paper Towns stars Cara Delevingne and Nat Wolff may have played lovers on-screen but as far as the public is concerned these two are not romantically involved in real life. But shouldn’t they be??? How adorably handsome are these two? If their on-screen chemistry didn’t convince you of their apparent non-platonic love for each other, then their best friend status should be the determining factor. We mean, aren’t all great love stories built on a foundation of a great friendship? We rest our case.
14. Ashley Benson and Shay Mitchell
These “Pretty Little Liars” have been BFF’s since before we can even remember and though they don’t seem to play for the other team, we think that perhaps they should. Not only do these two look smokin’ hot together, but they seem like they would be the most random, quirky, oddly wild couple in Hollywood. Who says you can’t marry your best friend and kiss them on the lips sometimes? No one. Ha. But really, Buttah and Benzo have got our vote for Prom Queens.
13. Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio
These two have been best friends since their Titanic days, and boy do we still wish they were an item in real life. Once you plunge to your death for the woman you love in a blockbuster hit it’s kind of hard for people not to think you’re totally whipped in real life too. Despite the time that’s passed since Kate and Leo filmed this epic movie, we still not-so-secretly want them to end up together. Rose and Jack forever! We mean, Kate and Leo.
12. Katy Perry and Robert Pattinson
Alright, so normally we’re not huge fans of Robert Pattinson. The whole sparkling milky- white skinned vampire role kind of did us in. But… w are fans of this twosome. They might seem an unlikely pair, platonic or otherwise, but we think this could work. Katy Perry is hot, out there, and whimsical. And he’s a bit timid, broody and chill– these two could really balance each other out and create some fireworks of their own. Did you see what we did there? Did you?
11. Jennifer Lopez and Leah Remini
These famous ladies are what we like to call the lustful and funny gals. They seem like they would be super hilarious in bed together discussing how Jenny ain’t chillin’ on the block no more. Ha. Sure Leah Remini has had her ups and downs (need we remind you about the whole Scientology debacle and her writing a book about it) but all the more reason for her to settle down with someone who actually has her shit together. And have you seen JLo lately? She’s 46 and she’s still sportin’ a rock hard body– if Leah isn’t down to make her her new boo– sign us up!
10. Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence
OK. So these two have been rumored, by multiple sources, to be dating each other, but we don’t think it’s ever been officially stated that these two were an item. Well, we’re officially stating that these two should cut the crap and become an item already. Not only do they continue to star in movies together (damn good movies we might add) but they just have this insane friend bond that seems to be the perfect foundation to develop a whirlwind romance.
9. Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox
Lezbehonest. Ever since Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston kissed in that episode of Friends way back when (yes, we’ve been holding out for this long) we have been wanting these two ladies to become a thing. We’ll even settle for a random hookup that they own up to on the Friends Reunion DVD. Yes, we’re that desperate. But really, if you can’t see how hot they’d be then you need to get your eyes checked– or possibly watch that episode of Friends we was talking about earlier. You’ll thank us later.
8. Natalie Portman and Rashida Jones
Does this pairing even need an explanation? They’re Harvard girls! You’ve got Natalie Portman who is drop dead gorgeous, and you’ve got just as smokin’ Rashida Jones. Both ladies are A-listers and have been best buds in the public eye. Why would anyone object? Unless you’re still rooting for Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis to be a thing because you saw Black Swan (that scene… are we right?) and were like DAYUM. But don’t hold your breath, that was work. This? This is a true bond that developed between two leading ladies. And what could be more romantic than that?
7. Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph
Fun city. That’s what these two best friends turned lovers would be. We mean, they don’t even have to be committed to each other– they could paint the town red (no really, we can picture them literally painting things on a night out) and just have a blast doing it. When you mix two of the funniest women in the entertainment world you’re bound to get one helluva headline.
6. Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock
These two are another unlikely pair. We can’t exactly explain why– call it intuition- or chalk it up to Ryan Reynolds being this quirky heartthrob and Sandra Bullock being… well, she’s just a national treasure, that’s what she is. Truth be told ever since we saw The Proposal and these two mushed their bodies together (We’re sure it wasn’t really their naked bodies… but maybe, just maybe it was!) we were like yup. These two need to get married in real life and live happily ever after. We’re still waiting for that. Or for a second installment of The Proposal. Either will do.
5. Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez
T.Swift and SloGo. Can it get any better than this? Although we’re not too keen on Taylor (we know, we’re in the minority here) we think that these two are the most adorable thing to hit the internet since those fainting cats. Taylor Swift is probably the last person anyone wants to get involved with… considering she turns every failed relationship into a hit song, but Selena Gomez has experience with Justin Bieber so we think she can handle herself. Let’s make it happen!
4. Taylor Swift and Emma Stone
OK, so when Taylor is done with Selena Gomez (we know it’s bound to happen, and she’ll go on to write some hit song about her first lesbian experience with the former Disney star) then she can definitely move onto Emma Stone. Emma Stone seems like she’s just this regular gal except, you know, super freakin’ famous. But she doesn’t let that determine what she does. So, blonde… redhead- let’s make it happen!
3. Nina Dobrev and Julianne Hough
From slaying (okay, maybe not slaying but dating) vampires to slaying on the dance floor, The Vampire Diaries and Dancing With the Stars stars sure do make a smokin’ hot couple. These besties are super sexy and sweet and we wouldn’t mind them dancing their way into our hearts. We mean, aren’t they there already anyway?
2. Eva Longoria and Mario Lopez
Ding ding ding, we have a winner! This spicy duo would make for an even spicier romance. We know that these two might not make it in the long haul but wouldn’t you love to see these friends have a torrid affair with each other and just really blow the media out of the water? No? It’s just us? Oh, come on! You know you can’t resist Eva Longoria’s charm or Mario Lopez’s charismatic hunkiness.
1. Jaden Smith and Kylie Jenner
The youngest of this bunch, Will Smith’s tiny tyke is all grown up and he’s been spotted with Kylie Jenner. Now, normally we’re like Kardashians… nooooo! Stay away, stay far, far away. But Jaden Smith seems to be listening to the sound of his own drums. He’s got this super innovative outlook on life and maybe he can knock (well, kiss) some sense into the youngest of the Kardashian clan. “Date! Date! Date!”
