year ago

We really didn’t see friendships like Kris Jenner and Jennifer Lawrence coming, but the stories of how they met are even more interesting. From hilarious feuds to sticking up for each other, these celebrities show us the real meaning of camaraderie.

1. Ariana Grande and Jennifer Coolidge

A few years ago, 29-year-old Ariana Grande released her thank u, next music video, where Jennifer Coolidge, 61 made an iconic appearance. The pop star called Coolidge for the recreation of a Legally Blonde scene. When talking in an interview about how her life and career have grown, Coolidge said to Ariana Grande, “I think if you hadn’t put me in thank u, next and done that imitation, I don’t think I would be here where I am.”

2. Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey

The co-stars of the TV Show The Last of Us became close after working together. Pedro Pascal, 47, and Bella Ramsey 19, make a mismatched friendship since there is a huge age gap between them. In an interview, Ramsey talked about being non-binary and having conversations with Pascal about gender and sexuality. According to her, he was super supportive on the set of the TV Show.

3. Courteney Cox and Ed Sheeran

Courteney Cox, 58, and Ed Sheeran, 32, became best friends despite their big age gap. They met at a party at Cox’s house in L.A., and since then, Sheeran has stayed at her house whenever he’s in L.A. In 2014, the Shape of You singer played cupid by introducing Cox to her fiancé, Johnny McDaid.

4. Drew Barrymore, Gwyneth Paltrow, Cameron Diaz, and Nicole Richie

A while back, Drew Barrymore posted a picture on her social media where you could see some familiar faces like Gwyneth Paltrow, Cameron Diaz, and Nicole Richie. Barrymore and Diaz have one of the cutest friendships ever, and their group just keeps growing. According to Barrymore, Diaz brought her and Richie together because the 2 are sisters-in-law.

5. Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair

Despite the fact that Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair met as co-stars in a movie called Cruel Intentions, no one would have thought that this pair would be best friends even through their hardships. Sometimes, when bad things happen in our lives, some friendships tend to drift apart, but not with these 2.

After Blair was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, Gellar got closer to her. “She was my biggest supporter to get me through and feed me, and do things when I was going through a really, really bad time physically and emotionally,” said Blair about her long-time friend.

6. Kris Jenner and Jennifer Lawrence

Never in a million years would we think that this crossover would happen. Kris Jenner and Jennifer Lawrence met at Lawrence’s birthday party. The actress’ team asked Jenner to surprise The Hunger Games star by arriving with the cake since Lawrence is a fan of the Kardashian-Jenner family.

Jenner even said some nice words about the actress. “She’s like one of my kids. I’m so blessed to have her in my life.”

7. Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson

Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson have an out-of-the-ordinary friendship in Hollywood. The pair are always finding ways to be super hilarious with their mocking of each other, and we can’t get enough of them. Even though they’ve starred in many films together, their sense of humor and difference in height are what makes them stand out from the rest.

8. Paul Rudd and Jeffrey Dean Morgan

According to actor Morgan, he and Rudd have known each other for a while since they are basically neighbors. Although their bromance is not that strange, what we find fascinating is how the pair decided to buy a candy store together.

In an interview, Morgan said, “We know the guy that started the store 25 years ago. He passed away suddenly, and we didn’t want the store to be anything else than what it was, so we decided to step in and buy the candy store.”

9. Ryan Reynolds and David Beckham

This duo met in a comical way after Ryan Reynolds made a joke about David Beckham in one of the Deadpool movies. A few years after the movie aired, Reynolds decided to apologize to Beckham. The actor and the former soccer player appeared in a commercial where Deadpool asks for Beckham’s forgiveness, and we couldn’t stop laughing after watching it.

10. Sarah Jessica Parker and Andy Cohen

Parker and Cohen might be one of the sweetest friendships in Hollywood, and it was pure luck that they found each other. The pair met while Cohen wasn’t known in the industry yet. He worked backstage as a producer for a TV Show.

The dynamic duo is so close that Cohen is Parker’s plus one to the Met Gala every time, and the Sex and The City star is there for Cohen whenever he needs parenthood advice.

11. Dakota Johnson and Gwyneth Paltrow

Some people might question why this relationship is weird since both women are famous Hollywood actresses, but there is always more to the story. It turns out that Dakota Johnson is the new partner of Paltrow’s ex-husband, Chris Martin.

Paltrow and Martin finalized their divorce in 2016 but decided to remain friends for the sake of their kids. Now, both couples have been seen spending time together as a big family. When the Shakespeare In Love star was asked about Johnson, she said, “I love her. I can see how it would seem weird because it’s sort of unconventional.”

12. Meryl Streep and 50 Cent

Back in 2014, actress Meryl Streep and rapper 50 Cent attended a basketball game and the news became viral. However, their meeting was completely random since the stars didn’t arrive together. Streep was actually accompanied by her husband. Despite all that, Streep and 50 Cent had a great time and even bonded after the game alongside Kobe Bryant.

13. Matthew McConaughey and Guy Fieri

Actor and Hollywood star Matthew McConaughey was a big fan of TV host Guy Fieri. In 2019, Fieri received his Hollywood Walk of Fame star, and his buddy McConaughey gave a tender speech about how the 2 met. “I came across this show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, and it quickly became my favorite show,” said the actor.

The How to Lose a Guy In 10 Days star invited Fieri to his house in LA and spent the day with him. “This is a guy I met who was curious and was also dealing with some newfound fame and wanted to talk about how best to navigate it,” said McConaughey about his dear friend.
