You know that feeling when you watch a TV show, movie or YouTube video and think “wow, these guys are having so much fun” and you wonder whether they are acting or actually really having that much fun? Well here’s your lucky day. Below we’ve listed 10 celebrity duos that you may not have known are real life best friends. These duos range from Hollywood celebrities, American socialites, TV hosts etc. They are literally the very best of friends and some have even been in each other’s lives from before they were famous!
Now I know that celebrities are really just like us, except they have a butt load of money and have the coolest lives… I digress. But celebrities are just normal people. They have a family, a hatchback, maybe a goldfish or two. They go to each other’s holiday parties, grandmother’s birthdays and watch each other’s dogs. They are truly normal people living a public life.
Yet, what fans love to see is who they hang out with or who they are dating. We yearn to know whether relationships are fake or if they are real. We want to know if that romance on camera is genuine and if that hilarious scene was well scripted or done on the spot. We want to know if the things we see in tabloids or movies are accurate or telling us a completely made up story.
Though usually it is all hearsay, below is a list of very REAL best-friendships.
10. Kylie Jenner & Jaden Smith
As the “youngions” on this list, having grown up with celebrity families its no wonder that these two became quick friends. Close in age, Kylie Jenner and Jaden Smith have become some of the most stylish teenagers around have have collectively introduced and re-vamped new styles and trends to the younger demographic. They are hip, cool and are seen as part of the “IT” crowd of their age because of their massive following on social networks. They are who young people aspire to be these days. Not only that, but their friendship circle extends to other famous musicians such as Justin Bieber and Pia Mia. Seems like a pretty cool group, eh?
9. Salma Hayek & Penelope Cruz
Probably the most exotic and classy on this list are none other than Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz. These beautiful Latinas have had an ongoing love affair with each other for over a decade. Having been best friends for what seems like forever, these two are notably some of sexiest females in Hollywood and are genuine friends. As both of them are over the age of forty, they have known each other for over a decade and consider one another part of their inner circle. Though they are no strangers to the limelight, they do prefer not display their private life.
8. Ashley Benson & Shay Mitchell
These stunning stars of the hit HBO show Pretty Little Liars are not only on screen best friends but real life best friends. These two gals, though friends with the rest of the cast, admitted to being a little bit obsessed with each other. They even have nicknames for each other like “boo” and “ButtahBenzo.” Dubbed as some of the prettiest (little liars…) and humble emerging stars of 2015, it is no surprise that these two are super down to earth and get a long so well. So well in fact that they regularly take vacations to Hawaii and Milan with each other.
7. Kanye West & Jay Z
Notably, these two are most definitely the most powerful best-friend duo in the music industry. Having been friends for ages, these two have dominated the rap scene and have continued on producing hit music, clothing lines, music labels and they are even married to the most beautiful women in Hollywood, Beyonce and Kim Kardashian. These two literally have it all and suffice to say they have an amazing friendship with each other. With talent like these two have, what I really want to see is another collaboration between them. Hey- maybe they’ll do a part 2 of “N***as in Paris”!
6. Kendall Jenner & Gigi Hadid
These Californian babes are one of the coolest duos on this list. Hey, every brunette needs a blonde best friend right?! Considered as the “IT girls” of 2015, these two have taken the modelling and fashion industry by storm. Having both been part of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show 2015 they have instantly turned into international sensations (not that they weren’t before) and have traveled literally the world together. What’s really cool about these two is that they both reached success at the same time, they’re the same age and they get to experience it all together. Nice work, ladies!
5. Nina Dobrev & Julianne Hough
These two are so fun. These beautiful, girl next door type of gals are consistently seen together doing cool, hip and trendy things, laughing, site seeing, hiking and even traveling. They’re always dancing, or smiling and as a fan its very refreshing to see. They see to be completely down to earth and sincere. And not only that they are huge humanitarians and have taken loads of trips to impoverished countries to help the poor. They are super contagious if you know what i mean, once you see them together you always want them to be together. They are just straight up good people.
4. Tina Fey & Amy Poehler
Hands down the funniest female best-friend duo ever! With over 20 years of friendship, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler who coincidentally became two of TV’s most loved comic actresses, have written and produced some of the most hilarious scripts and movies together. From the very beginning at a writers class in California (before they were famous) the two instantly clicked and have since starred in Mean Girls, Baby Mama and Parks & Recreation together. I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait to see their latest movie Sisters. It should be a complete riot. Love love love these two.
3. Justin Timberlake & Jimmy Fallon
These two have a serious bromance going on. They are constantly on Fallon‘s show doing hilarious skits and intense rap battles. They have this uncanny ability to make you want to know them. Just think… imagine them acting out their skits in each other’s homes with a 6 pack and hip hop playing in the background. Hilarious, right? They must have a blast together. All they ever seem to do is have a laugh! They even have coffee mugs with the other’s face on it, I don’t even have that with my best friend! Though no future collaborations have been announced, I can still silently dream of a movie starring these two. Fingers crossed!
2. Taylor Swift & Selena Gomez
These two are just cute. Both having been in the spotlight at an early age, they have grown up together. Famously known for their “girl group” they are also friends with stars such as Demi Lovato, Lorde and Cara Delevingne. These down to earth girls are apparently avid bakers and hold regular dinner parties and baking sessions. Who wouldn’t like to be part of this girl group?? To be honest, they probably only discuss boys (probably as inspo for Taylor‘s songs… kidding) but nevertheless they have an extremely close nit friendship which is great to see, especially since they are some of the most popular celebrities right now. All jokes aside, these girls are good natured, humble and sweet and we love that they are genuine and best friends.
1. James Franco & Seth Rogen
Probably the most amazing/hilarious best-friend duo in Hollywood is none other than James Franco and Seth Rogen. You all know the movies Pineapple Express, The Interview and This Is The End, right? Well you know the relationship that these two on camera? It’s real. In real life they are actual best friends that absolutely adore each other, which we find pretty cute. They are constantly pictured together and are open about their smoking and drinking habits, which makes them even more chill. Remember their version of Kanye West’s video of the song “Bound 2”? Only a couple of best friends/stoners would think of that. These two are literally your average guys who are known for being able to kick back, relax, have a beer and play video games. They are my absolute favorite!
