Having a best friend is really about having a partner in crime who totally gets you. A best friend likes you despite your imperfections, always stands up for you and is there to comfort you when things go wrong. So, when we spot these lovable qualities — along with lots of others — in a strong female celebrity friendship, we can’t get enough of it. It’s especially rare to see celebrity BFFs showing love for one another IRL, we definitely think it should be highlighted.
Celebrity besties like Jennifer Lopez and Leah Remini, Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King, and even Game of Thrones stars Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams are currently setting the tone for what a modern, supportive, strong celebrity friendship between women really looks like. On their own, these women are dynamic, intelligent, driven and we love watching their careers take them to exciting places. But together, BFF duos like these are unbeatable — and we love it so much. The fact that famous actresses, models and singers actually share super close bonds with each other warms our hearts because we can relate.
While some famous gal-pals are pitted against each other and touted as rivals, these best friends walk the red carpet together, share silly moments on Instagram and have become like family. These women have helped each other stay strong even in trying times.
Here are our favorite celebrity BFFs who continue to surprise and inspire us. And then maybe call your own BFF and catch up with them.
