They say good friendships last a lifetime and looking at some celebrity friends makes you believe that statement thoroughly. The Hollywood celebrities we’ve listed below have been friends since childhood and continue to be best buds even now. To think that they were together even before they could have dreamt of becoming Hollywood stars really puts a smile on your face. Without wasting any more time then, let us tell you which Hollywood celebs have been friends since childhood.
John Krasinski and B.J. Novak
Both these stars who rose to fame with the American adaptation of The Office hail from Newton, Massachusetts and in fact, Krasinski remembers Novak as their town’s ‘home run king’ from their Little League days. And upon growing up, Novak was the one that indirectly led to Krasinski to become an actor. He had cast Krasinski in a play written by him and that’s when the acting bug bit him.
Elijah Wood and Macaulay Culkin
The two were already child stars when they met on the sets of the 1993 movie, The Good Son. Their friendship has stood the test of time, since Elijah is known to have helped Culkin during the 2000s when he was going through a rough patch in his life. Culkin has since gotten rid of his troubles and is back in the acting game again.
Leonardo Di Caprio and Tobey Maguire
Often seen at basketball games together, these two stars had become kids in their childhood days when their parents were taking them to various auditions in Hollywood. They finally got to collaborate in 2013’s Baz Luhrmann adaptation of The Great Gatsby, which also starred Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Isla Fisher, Jason Clarke and Elizabeth Debicki.
Kim Kardashian West and Nicole Richie
Kim Kardashian West and Nicole Richie had met when they were preteens and there’s even a photograph to prove it. Kim had posted it on her Instagram with the caption, “#ThrowbackThursday @nicolerichie and I being oh so cool at 13 years old.” Kim has also said that the two had once stolen lipsticks from a drugstore together when they were kids.
Matt Damon and Ben Affleck
These mega-stars had met during a Little League baseball game and have been friends ever since. And in fact, they both went to the same school as well. They’ve known each other since more than 35 years now and Matt has even claimed that they’ve fed on each other’s obsession with filmmaking and acting. They have worked together on various projects, the most famous among them being Goodwill Hunting.
Justin Timberlake and Ryan Gosling
Timberlake and Gosling, like many other pairs of friends in Hollywood, met on sets in the 1990s and instantly bonded. The show was The Mickey Mouse Club and it also featured other biggies like Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears. But the friendship that lasted was between these two stars. Gosling is even known to have spent about a year living with Timberlake and his mother.
