Good friends are hard to find, right? Fortunately for some female celebrities, they have found lifelong companions in other A-listers. Here’s some of the most touching celeb BFF stories in Hollywood. We push each other. And we’ve had the majority of our lives spent side by side, really going through what real life is … we just have each other’s backs Drew Barrymore on Cameron Diaz Tina Fey and Amy Poehler met at a Chicago improv club in 1993 Back when Poehler and Fey were cutting their teeth in the improv circuit, they met at Chicago’s ImprovOlympic theatre (now known as iO). In her biography Yes Please , Poehler recalls meeting Fey for the first time. “[ImprovOlympic co-founder Charna Halpern] said there was another new improviser in another one of her classes whom she thought I would really like. Her name was Tina and she was like me but with brown hair,” she wrote. The two had their own show at ImprovOlympic for a bit before joining the legendary Second City improv troupe. Since that fateful meeting more than 25 years ago, the duo has gone on to host the Golden Globes, star in the film Sisters together, and has created some of the most beloved SNL skits in recent history. Meet Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s millionaire sons, Brandon and Dylan Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz’s sisterhood started when they were teenagers More specifically, it started over a cup of coffee. Back in the 80s, Diaz, 16 at the time, grabbed a cup of joe from the coffee shop Barrymore worked at. According to E! Online , the two maintained a low-key friendship until 2002, when Barrymore offered Diaz a role on the Charlie’s Angels reboot she was producing. Since then, the two have developed an unbreakable bond, with Barrymore telling Entertainment Tonight ’s Lauren Zima in 2018 that she considers Diaz her sister. “We have much more of that kind of relationship, we’re very honest with each other,” Barrymore told ET . “We push each other. And we’ve had the majority of our lives spent side by side, really going through what real life is, which is an everyday high and low and we just have each other’s backs.” In September 2020, Barrymore invited Diaz and fellow Charlie’s Angels star Lucy Liu to be the first guests on her talk show, and they spoke about their relationship over the years. “The thing that I love about our friendship is that we have been there in all the big and important moments, we’ve also been there in the small moments and the casual moments and the reason we are such good friends is because it’s real and we go through real stuff with each other. It’s not a Hollywood fairy tale,” Barrymore said. 7 things to know about Brad Pitt’s rumoured girlfriend, Lykke Li Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox are the best of friends in real life, too It’s a bit serendipitous that Aniston and Cox met on the set of Friends . After acting alongside each other for a decade, the two developed a special bond that has only strengthened throughout the years. Aniston is the godmother of Cox’s daughter, Coco, and when Aniston married now ex-husband Justin Theroux in 2015, Cox was her maid of honour. Aniston then returned the favour and was Cox’s maid of honour in 2018. Aniston told More in 2014 that she and Cox have experienced the highs and lows of life together. “I’ve slept in her guest bedroom a lot,” Aniston told the outlet. “Without giving away too much of my private stuff, all I can say is she’s been there for me through thick and thin.” Who is Hannah Quinlivan, Jay Chou’s pregnant Taiwanese-Australian wife? Penélope Cruz and Salma Hayek had a near-death experience on a plane together … while dressed as clowns While flying to Mexico to film the film Bandidas in 2004, the actresses’ plane had to make a pretty serious emergency landing that involved depressurising the cabin and wearing oxygen masks. Even worse, the flight was on Halloween, so, naturally, Cruz and Hayek were dressed as clowns. “I’ve never liked clowns, even as a kid, but after this experience [I like them] even less,” Cruz told People in 2017. In the years since, the two have embarked on one of the most adored friendships in Hollywood. They even have a cute nickname for each other, which Cruz explained to Allure in 2014. “She’s one of my best friends. We call each other ‘huevos’ [eggs]. It was because when we were working together, we didn’t have children yet, so we used to sleep much more than now. So it was a way to call each other lazy. We slept in the same bed so many times, and it was like she was always trying to wake me up and call me ‘huevos’.” Who is Tracy Romulus, and why is Kanye blaming her for the Kim K divorce drama?

Remini remembers being wowed the first time she met J-Lo. “He was like, ‘She’s the love of my life, blah, blah, blah,’” Remini recalled in a 2018 Los Angeles Times interview. “As I was walking up to the table, I was like, ‘Ugh, God, you’re even prettier in real life.’ She started laughing, and I was like, ‘Ugh, and you have a sense of humour even?’” Are Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly the new Angelina and Billy Bob?
