Celebs who are best friends in real life



What’s better than one celebrity? Two celebrities who are best friends! This phenomenon is entirely real in Hollywood and it crosses gender, genre and age lines. Look at Taylor Swift and her million and one Hollywood ‘best friends’, also known as her ‘squad’. T-Swift has an enormous amount of famous friends (and ex-boyfriends) who are all documented on her social media platforms. In addition to Swift, there is an incredible amount of celebrity best friends and we couldn’t be happier about it.


The most famous besties of Hollywood are probably Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox. They met on their breakout and hit show Friends, so it was inevitable and serendipitous. The two go everywhere together and defend one another in the media spotlight and in the shadows. There are other celebrities who are also very good friends in real life. The common denominator of these friendships usually comes down to costars or mutual friends. 

Models like Kendall Jenner and Cara Delevigne have each other’s backs, rappers Kanye West and Jay Z are bros, and Titanic duo Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet show that male and female friendships are actually a thing, even when you played lovers on-screen. There are certain celebrities who ended up in the same industry and as famous as can be but actually knew each other when they were in high school! It’s very cool to be reminded that these famous people are just that – people. They went to high school and exam periods, just like us, and had friends and braces too! 

Going through this article and seeing how many incredible friendships there are in Hollywood is heartwarming and endearing, not to mention it makes the gap between them and us that much smaller since we all have a tendency to put them on a god-like pedestal.
