Everyone loves the story of co-stars-turned-famous-flames, and as undeniably swoon-worthy as that is, there’s something arguably more magical about co-stars becoming best friends off the silver screen.
Hollywood is known for its competitive, cutthroat nature, and taking that into consideration, the friendships that transcend the rather unfriendly disposition of the business are something really special. Seeing co-stars’ onscreen bonds carry over into real life adds another layer to the fandom and fantasy that film and TV create — there’s just something about your favorite actors being besties for real that feels warm and fuzzy and right, like their time onscreen together had true, undeniable meaning beyond the act for the show.
Whether they met on set or shared the big screen after meeting, these famous friendships are each adorable in their own right. From Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams’ Stark sisterhood come true to Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson’s wholesome bromance and “friendship tours,” these celebrity comraderies are giving ultimate friendship goals, and we simply can’t get enough. You may even be surprised by a few of these famous friends — who would have guessed Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley would be pals IRL after their portrayal of the Salvatore brothers’ tumultuous relationship in The Vampire Diaries? Certainly not us, but that makes their friendship even more interesting.
If you’re in need of precious besties content and general positivity between people, these celebrity friendships will fill your cup.
