Our culture has some serious stalker tendencies when it comes to celebrities. Think about it. If we’re really honest about things, our world of entertainment revolves around knowing some very personal things about people we don’t even really know. People we have never crossed paths with or spoken to, yet we still care to know odd details of their lives. We want to know where celebrities shop, where they eat, what they do in their spare time, what brands they wear, what beauty products they use, and who their friends are. While some celebrities do their best to keep their lives private, there are others who are all about flaunting their squad. Social media platforms like Instagram and Twitter have made it incredibly easy for celebrities to share aspects of their lives in an instant (meaning; before their PR can advise them not to.) They keep us informed of their parties, special events, and intimate gatherings….while also mentioning exactly who in Hollywood was there with them. So who does it better? We’ve got a few celebs in mind.
12 Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer Aniston has some of the most famous and powerful friends in the business. Most people know that she is besties with Courteney Cox but do you know her other close friends? Ellen Degeneres, Meryl Streep, Chelsea Handler and Lisa Kudrow rank among Aniston's closest pals. Don't forget she is also buddies with Adam Sandler, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Elton John!
11 James Franco
Some of the funniest guys in Hollywood are part of Franco's squad. These guys are in most of each other's films and if they are not acting in front of the camera together, they most often are a part of the film's production. One of Hollywood's most epic bromances belongs to Seth Rogan and James Franco, the pair met back in 1999 on the set of the show Freaks and Geeks. Since then they have remained close and even express their love for one another in the roles that they play. Among Franco's famous circle of friends is Danny McBride, Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill and his famous brother Dave Franco.
10 The Kardashians
Either you love them or you hate them. (Or you secretly love them while pretending to hate them.) Either way, this family has made a name for themselves. Literally. Simply known as “The Kardashians,” this family unit has taken the world by storm by turning their name into brand. A reality TV show, a steady flow of business deals, and constant press makes them some of the most recognizable people in the industry. Their squad also includes a couple of Jenners (Kendall and Kylie, of course), a few childhood best friends (we see you Malika!), and now, future presidential candidate, Kanye West. Like it or not, “The Kardashians” are everywhere seemingly doing everything. And they don’t intend on leaving the limelight any time soon.
9 Kendall Jenner
Kendall may be one piece in the Kardashian squad, but this beauty has stepped out on her own. Not only professionally, but also out into the world. And because of this, she has created a squad of her own. Kendall runs a crew of mostly gorgeous, young models. Like… legit, runway, high fashion models. Members of the KJ squad include Cara Delevingne, Joan Smalls, and Gigi Hadid. Can you imagine how many heads must turn when these ladies go ANYWHERE together? Two things Kendall has in her own personal squad that is lacking in the Kardashian squad; her two hunky brothers Brandon and Brody Jenner.
8 Amy Schumer
Funny lady Amy Schumer’s career has skyrocketed. And she has certainly received a lot of attention for her relatable (and oddly enough, sometimes controversial) remarks lately. But in all honesty, this down to earth blonde seems like she would be an awful lot of fun to just hang with. Who wouldn’t want to spend the day laughing with her?! Another reason Amy made this list? Her squad contains every (yes, EVERY) girl’s pretend bff: Jennifer Lawrence. When you have J-Law in your squad, you don’t really need to name drop any further.
7 Once Upon a Time Cast
Any fan of SciFi/Fantasy will tell you how big of a deal the show Once Upon a Time is. But series success aside, this cast seems to have gone from strictly co-workers to friends for life. Practical jokes, teasing, hanging out off set, and lots of laughs are all a part of being in this squad. Follow Sean Maguire on Twitter and you will see all of the shenanigans for yourself. After seeing all of the fun and sibling-like love, it makes you wonder how they are able to keep it together during tense scenes on set. Plus, who wouldn’t want to be friends with Captain Hook?
6 Pretty Little Liars Cast
Like the Once Upon a Time crew, the lovely ladies of Pretty Little Liars seem to take interactions beyond the realm of the workplace. Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell, Ashley Benson, and Troian Bellisario may have tons of drama, betrayal, and deception to deal with on screen, but it seems their off screen friendship plays a very different tune: One of love, support, and fun.
5 Lil Wayne
Someone (Jenna Marbles) once made a reference that avocados are the Lil Wayne of the food world: They’ll work with everyone. The reason why this reference works? Because it’s true. Lil Wayne seems to somehow be featured on every track on the radio. No matter the genre, Lil Wayne will come in, make it work, and leave us all with a track we are sure to hear played in the club for the next 10 years. So who is in this hit maker’s squad? Drake (duh), Nicki Minaj, DJ Khaled, Eminem, Chris Brown, and, recently added, Christina Milian. Old school favorites like Juvenile, Snoop Dog, and Sean Combs (aka Puffy, Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, Diddy) are also members of Lil Wayne’s squad. I’m sure if we included everyone Wayne has ever worked with as well, we’d have a list that was made up of most of the music industry.
4 Tina Fey
Not only does Tina Fey have a reputation for being one of the brightest and most talented women in Hollywood, she also has a team of comedic ladies by her side. It’s no secret that she and Amy Poehler are partners in crime. But two ladies you may not have realized are also her gal pals? Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig. Looks like the ladies of SNL stuck together all of these years. What makes this even better is that they have taken newbie Cecily Strong under their wings.
3 Beyonce and Jay Z
When Beyonce and Jay Z said “I do,” they not only joined two lives, they also joined their social circles. This ended up creating one of the most influential squads in Hollywood today. Can you imagine it? Rihanna, Kanye West, David and Victoria Beckham, Pharrell, Nicki Minaj, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Jennifer Hudson all hanging out, chatting it up over some drinks and eats at the Carters’ house. Of course, those drinks will be top shelf and the eats are probably catered or prepared by a personal chef. But still… all of these A-listers hanging out together paints quite the picture.
2 Cameron Diaz
Cameron may not have as many ladies in her crew as number one on our list (it's almost impossible), but she does have a squad made up of much more recognizable, household names. Reese Witherspoon, Drew Barrymore, Leslie mann, Jennifer Aniston; All of these ladies are strictly A-list stars who have paid their dues, proved their worth, and made it clear they are not just a flash in the pan. And, you guessed it, they are all also members of Cameron’s squad. If you’re looking to party with some rom-com beauties, this is the squad for you.
1 Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift’s squad is the definition of squad goals. Not only does it seem to multiply by the second (seriously, girl. How do you make bffs so quickly?!) , it also contains some of the most beautiful women in young Hollywood today. Selena Gomez is Swift’s right hand lady, but who else has joined the squad since these two became besties? Well… for starters, Lorde, Jaime King, Lena Dunham, Martha Hunt, Gigi Hadid, Hailee Steinfeld, Serayah McNeill, and Cara Delevingne. She seems to have created the ultimate girl clique. Not only that, she pulled the “go with your girlfriends instead of a date” move when attending the VMA’s; something that received a lot of press…and it wasn’t even her entire squad!
