7 Pairs of Celebrities Who Don’t Need Romance to Have Sweet Bonds
Just because 2 people of the opposite gender have a deep admiration for one another doesn’t mean they’ll automatically hit it off as a couple. Moreover, sometimes Hollywood co-stars have really strong chemistry and need to constantly ward off rumors that they’re more than just pals. And the good thing about this kind of relationship is that we don’t have to worry about them ever calling it quits.
At Bright Side, we believe that the strongest bonds are forged in friendship, and decided to show you 7 of the most adorable platonic relationships in Hollywood.
1. Charlize Theron and Keanu Reeves
Rumors that the 2 gorgeous stars may have been more than just friends have been swirling since they starred together in Sweet November. And the gorgeous pair have remained close for more than 2 decades.
While the 2 have never spoken publicly about any relationship rumours, Charlize Theron wasn’t afraid to publicly declare her affection for Keanu Reeves tweeting, “I love this handsome human so much... You’re just the best!” Of course, they’re just good friends, as The Matrix star has been officially linked to someone else.
2. Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio
Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet starred in the 1997 hit movie, Titanic, and their chemistry was quickly noticed by moviegoers. And as much as we would love DiCaprio and Winslet to ride off into the sunset together, we’ll just have to settle for their incredible friendship. DiCaprio has been dating model Camila Morrone since 2017, while Winslet married Edward Abel Smith in 2012. In fact, at Winslet’s wedding, it was DiCaprio who walked her down the aisle.
3. Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper
The pair first appeared on-screen together in the 2012 romantic comedy-drama, Silver Linings Playbook, and even though rumors started jumping out of the woodwork, 4-time co-stars Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence denied they had any romantic attraction toward one another and claimed to be nothing more than close friends.
4. Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler
Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler were 2 of the ’90s staples that fans could always turn to for a good laugh. They’ve starred in a handful of truly classic films together, dating back to the late ’90s with The Wedding Singer, which served as the start of a friendship that spanned over 2 decades and counting.
In fact, their friendship is built on mutual respect and admiration for one another.
Moreover, Barrymore’s memoir, Wildflower, has a chapter dedicated to Sandler, where she acknowledges the massive impact the actor had on her personal and professional life and talks about her long-time friendship with him, saying, “I thought Adam had a goodness that was so unique. I could tell that he possessed something different, and I was drawn to his light.”
5. Julia Roberts and George Clooney
Though George Clooney and Julia Roberts seem like career-long friends, they didn’t meet until they both did Ocean’s Eleven in 2001. And ever since, they have had an unshakable bond, and the superstar is so close to Roberts that he considers her part of his extended family, and the affection naturally extends to their spouses as well.
6. Jodie Foster and Mel Gibson
The pair have been close friends since they met on 1994’s Maverick. In fact, the actress admitted that the minute she met Mel Gibson she knew that she would love him for the rest of her life, and she considers him to be warm, affectionate, loving, and a really good friend. As a result, Jodie Foster never hesitated to stand by him during his worst moments of struggle.
7. Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling
Young stars Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling have appeared in 3 movies together, Crazy, Stupid, Love, Gangster Squad, and La La Land. And it’s hard to deny the amazing chemistry they have on-screen.
Moreover, Stone didn’t hesitate to express her deep admiration for Gosling as she said, of her “dear, wonderful” friend, “I can’t even imagine what my life would be without Ryan.”
