Here Are 21 Celebrities Who Are Best Friends In Real Life

Everybody needs someone they can talk to in times of trouble or who they can cry with. In other words, everyone needs a best friend. Making friendships is hard in regular life, but what about the Hollywood world? It must be really complicated to establish a new friendship knowing that you’ll barely be able to see him or her because of your demanding schedule throughout the year. But what can be better for a celebrity than having another star as a best friend? Here are the 21 celebrities who are actually best friends in real life!

#21. Bette Midler And 50 Cent

This unusual pair met when they were part of the New York Restoration Project. Both of them shared the passion for making the city of New York a better place to live in by creating more green spaces and restoring old buildings for homeless people. Had they not participated in that project, they probably wouldn’t have met, since both lead completely different kind of lives.

Bette Midler is a singer and actress from the 60s and 70s.

Sometimes, actors or actresses may get competitive when fighting for a role, but this has never been the case for DiCaprio and Maguire! When they were young and both of them were starting their careers, they went to the same auditions several times: sometimes they auditioned for opposite roles, but a couple of times for the same one. The pair quickly became friends and have been very supportive of each other’s career. Luckily, they’ve had the opportunity to work together in The Great Gatsby.

Jay-Z started his singing career before West; in fact, he was already a consolidated singer when West made his first steps into the rap world.
