Celebrities understand how valuable it is to have insider connections in Hollywood. These best friends can assist each other win jobs, defend against gossip mags, and even fluff one other’s red carpet gowns.
You’ve probably heard of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s long-lasting connection, and you’re also aware that “Friends” co-stars Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox are closest friends in real life, but there are a few friendships you’ve probably never heard of. Here are some celebrity couples you probably didn’t realize were best friends.
1. Matthew McConaughey & Guy Fieri
When famous chef Guy Fieri was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, McConaughey delivered a speech. The Oscar winner revealed that he became infatuated with Fieri’s Food Network TV show “Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives” roughly 15 years ago.
Later, he phoned Fieri for a restaurant recommendation, and the rest, as they say, is history. The two men are now great friends who share a passion for living life “authentically.”
2. Katy Perry & Allison Williams
They not only attend award presentations together, but singer Katy Perry and “Girls” actor Allison Williams claim to have best-friend telepathy.
In 2017, the pals even turned blonde on the same day by mistake.
“I was emailing her and saying, ‘I’m going to be blonde the next time I see you,'” Williams explained to People. “‘Me too!’ she said. It was just funny.”
3. Jennifer Lawrence & Emma Stone
Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence have been friends for a long time, ever since their common co-star Woody Harrelson introduced them.
“We both truly love and care for each other as humans, aside from being actors,” Stone told Vanity Fair in 2016. “I absolutely support her in her profession, and she does the same for me, but I know we’d be friends even if we didn’t have the same job.”
They’ve interviewed one other twice since, once for W Magazine and again in August 2018, when Stone asked Lawrence to conduct her cover interview for Elle.
4. Selena Gomez & Jennifer Anniston
The two stars met in 2014 through their shared management business and quickly clicked when Aniston invited Gomez over to her house.
“We’ve known one other for years,” Aniston told Gomez in January while guest-hosting The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” “You’ve visited my home. We’ve eaten pizza. Isn’t she a girl after my own heart when it comes to pizza? We adore pizza.”
“Yes, we do,” Gomez said.
Gomez also stated that Aniston provides her “maternal advise,” and the two have exchanged a few affectionate Instagram images.
5. John Travolta & Pitbull
Pitbull and actor John Travolta are buddies who, like many others, share SMS, images, and jokes. Pitbull (real name Armando Perez) would send the “Grease” star photoshopped images of himself as a bald guy.
Travolta eventually chose to follow in Pitbull’s footsteps and embrace the no-hair style.
