If you have siblings, you know all too well that sibling rivalry is real. But you also know that siblings make the best friends — and a ton of celebrities clearly feel the same way. Some of these stars with built-in BFFs won’t come as any surprise. Like, c’mon, has anyone managed to miss the one million Instagram posts from the Kardashian-Jenners reflecting what a tightknit crew they are (sans the occasional spat between Kim and Kourtney). Did you realize Jessica Alba’s brother is her bestie, though?
It actually makes a lot of sense that celebrities might lean on their siblings more than most. Fame can be a weird world to navigate. There’s intense scrutiny. Stars undoubtedly feel like they always have to be “on.” Having someone in their corner who understands all the quirky, more personal parts of their personality — the ones they’re able to keep out of the public eye — must be comforting. And for some celebrities, they have the added benefit of having a celebrity who also understands the business.
Maybe Liam and Chris Hemsworth vent to each other during their downtime back home in Australia about having their love lives dissected in headlines. Kate and Oliver Hudson launched a podcast together. Solange Knowles and Beyoncé won’t let anything come between them. Zooey and Emily Deschanel have shared the screen, and hopefully will again soon.
Whether their siblings are also famous or are vital links to life outside of Hollywood, the stars in this gallery enjoy having their brothers and sisters in their social circle.
