Everyone needs a good best friend (or friends); singers, actors, models and of course, us regular folks. Sometimes the grind of making your way through several superficial relationships seems rough, but if you persevere long enough, you may just find those true kinds of friends that you know will be with you forever. Those friends that will support you through thick and thin, through all the break-ups and loss and will be there to laugh with you in the happy times.
There have been several hot Hollywood friend pairings that have gone on to create great music or movie collaborations that we all know and love. Some friendships are even born out of working together in the movies or music. In some cases of male and female working friendships, the public may even be fooled into thinking they’re dating.
Even celebs need a good, solid shoulder to lean on from time to time, and we’re free to sit here and wish we were part of their friend circle. We’ll explore the realm of celebrity BFF relationships that have stood the test of time. So let’s take a look at some of the hottest celebrity best friend pairs of recent note.
12 Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale
These two were BFFs since their Disney days. They both starred in the High School Musical series of movies, and fans should be pleased to hear that they are still friends to this day. "We all went through something together that was pretty amazing and life-changing," Tisdale revealed in Us Weekly. "We weren't really prepared for all of the things that happened, so it bonded us forever — we're family." In fact, Tisdale recently introduced Hudgens and the rest of the cast of Gigi at the Tony Awards. It’s good to know fans can take some comfort when they queue up the old soundtrack all over again.
11 Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill
Funnyman Jonah Hill might not exactly be someone you’d expect to see hanging out with a notable A-list celebrity like Brad Pitt, but hey, Brad Pitt’s a nice guy. In fact, it all started with their movie Moneyball, in which Hill starred right alongside Pitt. Hill even crashed at Brangelina’s pad for 4 months while he was filming a movie in New Orleans. On The Daily Show, Hill said about Pitt, "I was shooting [21 Jump Street] in New Orleans, and he let me live in his house. He said, 'Go live there!' I said, 'I'm there for three-and-a-half, four months," and he said, 'That's cool. Live at my house.' Like, he's the nicest guy."

2 Tobey Maguire and Leonardo DiCaprio
Spider-man hangs out with Gatsby it turns out. Tobey and Leonardo have starred side-by-side in a few different projects and have gone on to be good friends in real life. It turns out that they’ve actually been friends for almost 25 years. I guess DiCaprio needs a bro shoulder to cry on every time he just narrowly misses that Oscar. The two have been photographed together at clubs as recently as this year. When they were in their teens in the ‘80s, they both auditioned for the same roles and became industry amigos, trying to help each other land parts in movies and TV.
1 Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez
One of the hottest young friendships of the day has to be Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift. Possibly the biggest pairing of the moment, these girls are both in their own rights, incredibly talented and popular singers of the moment. The fact that they are friends just feels oh so right. They actually first started hanging out in 2008 after it just so happened they were both dating Jonas brothers. They had their first public appearance together at the red carpet event for Another Cinderella Story in 2008, and the rest is history. They often refer to each other as “sisters” and can almost always be seen out together and hanging out together at Awards ceremonies.
