14 Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake
Certainly putting the romance in bromance, Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake have often poked fun at their loving and close-knit relationship.

13 BJ Novak and Mindy Kaling
Proving that exes can indeed be best friends, BJ Novak and Mindy Kaling have an odd yet fascinating relationship. Originally hitting it off while writing for the successful and extremely funny The Office, the pair dated for a while, mirroring their own characters relationship on screen. Seemingly still best pals, the pair are no longer an item, however, they are often pictured hanging out and having a good time like any old young couple in love. Constantly seen gushing over one another, the two are extremely nice when referring to the others work, with Novak recently stating, "A friend of mine who doesn’t know Mindy told me that for a year she considered Mindy’s book one of her closest friends. People really respond to her voice. It’s extremely intelligent without being the least bit pretentious." Fiercely knocking the 'men and women can't be friends' mantra out of the park, Novak and Kaling continue to make us all envious with their close and loving bond.
12 Michelle Williams and Busy Phillips
Acting more like a couple then a pair of best friends, Busy Phillips and Michelle Williams are the epitome of female friendship. Meeting on the set of Dawson's Creek, during the late nineties, Williams and Phillips have continued their love affair, both at awards shows and on social media. With Williams often inviting Phillips as her plus one to a number of showbiz events, the two have seemingly stirred up a number of rumors with regards to their actual status. In fact, with the two openly affectionate, the steamy friendship has often led a number of people to believe that the pair are actually an item, however, it seems nothing more than just a Hollywood folklore, or is it? Nevertheless, as well as being a good friend, Phillips was also a leading figure in helping Williams during the death of ex-husband and father of her child, Heath Ledger. Now, that's what best friends are for.
11 Matt Damon and Ben Affleck
Again, one of the biggest bromances to have ever graced the wonderful world of Hollywood, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are the epitome of best friends forever. And not a bad looking pair at that! Growing up together, the pair have been best pals for over 35 years, meeting when Damon was just ten years old. Recalling their initial bond, Damon was quoted as saying, "we were both in love with the same thing, acting and film making. I think we fed on each other’s obsession during really formative, important years and that bonded us for life." Shooting to fame after writing and co-starring in the immensely successful Good Will Hunting in 1997, the pairs careers seemingly took different paths, with Affleck having a somewhat difficult relationship with the media. However, above it all, the two have remained the best of pals, recently seen together laughing it up on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
10 Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore
Best pals for over 15 years, Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore have not only worked together on a number of projects but also stuck by each other through thick and thin. Speaking of her friend, Diaz stated, "she has the most amazing heart. She is one of my closest girlfriends, but the way she loves the people around her is really special. She is so giving of herself and so accepting of others. She has created this community for herself". Returning the favor, Barrymore seems just as smitten, claiming that Diaz would even break into jail for her, stating, "she would, like, get in there and get you out". With Diaz also acting as one of Barrymore's bridesmaids in 2012, the pair became close during the filming of cult classic Charlie’s Angels.

Famed for not being the friendliest of people, Chelsea Handler has often admitted her dislike for a number of celebrities across the circuit. However, with Jennifer Aniston seemingly not one of them, the pair have openly admitted their fondness for one another. With the two exceptionally different with the way they handle the media, the usually quiet and tranquil Aniston is something of a great difference when compared to the bold and blunt Handler. However, with Handler most definitely having Aniston's back with regards to the press and her previous ex-husband Brad Pitt, Handler has spoken out a number of times with reference to her hatred towards Angelina Jolie. Quoted as saying, "I just don't like Angelina Jolie. I don't think she's a girl's girl. I like girl's girls!", Handler also recently referred to the movie star as a "f*cking lunatic". Well, what's a friend if they aren't gonna stick up for you?
8 Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio
Again, proving that guys and girls make just as good best pals as those of the same gender, Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio are the ultimate Hollywood BFFs. Friends for almost 20 years, the pair originally met on the set of the extremely successful sobfest Titanic, in which the two play tragic lovers, Jack and Rose. With their love for one another translating off-screen as well as on, the pair became inseparable, and have remained extremely close ever since. With DiCaprio seemingly able to hold down a friendship rather than that of a relationship, Winslet has been a stable part of DiCaprio's life and career, with the two showcasing some serious chemistry on screen. Often heard whispering sweet nothings about one another to the press, DiCaprio recently called Winslet, "the best actor of her generation", with Winslet returning the favor stating, "he's my closest friend in the world", awwww.

7 Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King
Originally meeting in their early twenties, Gayle King and Oprah Winfrey immediately hit it off. Best friends for life, the gal pals are so close, that a number of rumors have circulated with regards to the exact nature of their friendship. Referring to the tabloid tales themselves, Winfrey stated, "I understand why people think we're gay, there isn't a definition in our culture for this kind of bond between women. So I get why people have to label it, how can you be this close without it being more than that?" You tell them! With King now the editor of Winfrey's extremely successful magazine O, the two ladies friendship seems to be as strong as ever. Proving you are never too old to party, the twosome were recently spotted living it up in Ibiza, in which the pair were photographed with a number of famous celebs. Oh, how the other half live.
6 Kanye West and Jay Z
With their relationship often the subject of debate, it can be difficult to clarify whether or not the pair actually do like each other at all. However, you don't have to like someone to love them, with the bond between the two extremely evident. Originally working together during the production of Jay Z's eleventh album, Blueprint 3, in which West had a huge contribution, the two began to work together more closely. Never shy from criticizing one other, the pals have often publicly slated each others work, however, that's what friends are for right?! Yet, underneath it all, there have been a number of classic best friend moments between the pair, with Jay Z ready to support his friend even when making stupid decisions, Tidal anyone? From publicly displays of affection to not attending wedding ceremonies, this friendship will always be confusing, but at the end of the day, what kind of relationship isn't?
5 Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake
Much like BJ Novak and Mindy Kaling, these two prove once again that exes can be besties, with Justin Timberlake and Cameron Diaz showcasing what it is to be an adult. Originally meeting in 2003, the couple dated for 3 years, quickly becoming one of the most loved romances in Hollywood history. However, seemingly putting all that behind them the two have since got married, to other people, with Timberlake having a son early last year. Ever the mature adults, the two recently starred together in comedy flick, Bad Teacher, in which the pair even got romantic with one another. Admitting that it was initially extremely awkward, the two outrageously attractive stars instantly swept it under the rug, creating one of the funniest on-screen pairings in a long time. Discussing their great partnership, Diaz stated, "It's great. Justin and I have always had a good laugh together, and to make a movie where we get to have a laugh together, and there really was no one else who was more perfect for this part, we were just two people who were working together, who just so happened to have gone out with one another at another time in our lives,"
4 Tina Fey and Amy Poehler
Probably one of the most envied female friendships on the list, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler not only make us so desperately want to hang out with them, but also kinda want to be them. That's right, both equally hilarious, the pair have a certain kind of chemistry only visible in the bestest of best friends. Originally meeting at the ImprovOlympic in Chicago in 1993, the pair instantly hit it off. Recalling her first experiences with Fey, Poehler stated, "she was sharp, shy, and hilarious. We took classes together and sat in the back". Going on to both star in the popular comedy show Saturday Night Live, the two were instant fan favorites, becoming the first co-female anchors on the weekend update segment. From starring together in two highly successful movies, to killing it each year hosting the Emmy's, the pairs friendship only seems to get stronger, as well as incredibly funnier.
3 George Clooney, Matt Damon, and Brad Pitt
When photos emerged of Brad Pitt, George Clooney, and Matt Damon all seemingly hanging out on a boat with their famous pals, the whole world went a little crazy. Displaying an A-lister friendship that only the super elite of Hollywood were invited to, the group even saw Julia Roberts and Jennifer Aniston all get involved at one point. With the trio's original friendship blossoming on the set of Oceans Eleven, the three were famed for being the ultimate pranksters, something that has continued since. Speaking of the pranks, Clooney recently stated, "my friends are rough on me. Brad Pitt's brutal, and Matt Damon. My friends used to change my outgoing phone message all the time. This was the old days when you had a phone machine. They would change the message to something horrible and there was nothing I could do to change it back. That was always brilliant." Ugh.
2 Taylor Swift's Girl Squad
Not only did Taylor Swift coin a new term in which women will be using for years to come, but the word 'girl squad' automatically brings up images of Swift's famous friendships and will probably continue to do so until the end of time. Love her or hate her, Swift herself acts as the ringleader, with the squad full of women throughout the wonderful world of Hollywood and a number of other showbiz enterprises. With members ranging from musician Selena Gomez, actress and writer Lena Dunham, super model to the stars Cara Delevingne and Gigi Hadid, to the Haim sisters and a number of Victoria Secret models, the squad even as mascot in the form of Swifts cat Olivia. Constantly gushing over her love for women and her female friendships, Swift famously included her girl squad in the now famed Bad Blood music video, in which a number of her friends are seen as action heroes. That's some serious squad goals right there.
1 Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox
You know we had to leave the most famous friendship duo for the number one spot! Spending ten seasons and most of their twenties and thirties working together, Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox quickly became firm friends, just as their on-screen counterparts so famously did. Usually pictured showing public displays of affection together, the two are said to be inseparable, often declaring their best friend status to the world. In fact, the two are such BFF's that Aniston was once quoted as saying, "there’s absolutely no judgment in Court. You’ll never feel scolded. She’s extremely fair, ridiculously loyal and fiercely loving. I’ve slept in her guest bedroom a lot. Without giving away too much of my private stuff, all I can say is she’s been there for me through thick and thin". Godmother to Cox's daughter Coco, Aniston recently revealed that she often babysits, giving her goddaughter first dibs on her jewelry box. Sweet!
