10+ Celebs Who Were Lucky Enough to Find True Friendships in Hollywood

Maintaining friendships can be difficult, especially with long-term friends, because with conflicting schedules we can’t seem to meet up as much as we’d like. In this respect, celebrities are no different. But when you’re really great friends, it doesn’t matter how often you see each other, only that when you do it feels as if no time has passed at all.
