There are loads of famous friends in Hollywood that we are all too familiar with. Think from Matt Damon and Ben Affleck to Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz, but there are some little known friendships that will surprise you.
Here’s a list of celeb pals we didn’t see coming:
Jennifer Lawrence, Adele and Emma Stone
They’ve hung out a few times and, honestly, it just makes sense since they’re all super famous and talented women. It’s like a girl gang of excellence.
Beyoncé and Blake Lively
Beyoncé asked Blake to make a cameo in the video for her and Jay Z’s Part II (On the Run) and we were all like “but how do they know each other?” Turns out Bey and Blake were both involved in Gucci's Chime For Change initiative along with other celeb names. It was at the 2010 jewellery collection launch hosted by Beyoncé and designer Lorraine Schwartz that we first saw them pictured together though.
David Beckham and Snoop Dogg
The pair first became friends in 2008, not long after The Beckhams moved from London to LA. David even appeared in an episode of the reality TV show Snoop Dogg’s Father Hood. And Snoop told the UK Mirror that David is “like a brother” and that he’s going to show him how to rap.
Jay Z and Chris Martin
While most us know that Beyoncé is friends with Gwyneth Paltrow, it’s not really as well known that Chris Martin and Jay Z are also firm friends. They met in 2006 and Chris collaborated with Jay on his comeback album Kingdom Come. They have also performed together a number of times.
Serena Williams and Colton Haynes
The pair have been friends for quite some time now, but it’s unclear how they first met. But they often post pictures of their awesome vacations and fun times to Instagram.
Courteney Cox and Ed Sheeran
These two were introduced by a mutual friend in 2013 and not long after that Ed reportedly spent three months living at Courteney’s beach house while writing music. And Ed introduced Courteney to her fiancé, Johnny McDaid.
My friend Courteney is nominated for a People Choice Award for favourite cable tv actress. She's never won one before and she lets me live in her beach house, so how's about we all vote for her and win her the damn thang eh? Safe. Vote here please kind people - http://www.peopleschoice.com/pca/vote/votenow.jsp
Chris Hemsworth and Matt Damon
They are such good friends, they actually spend vacations together. They were spotted in Chris’s native Australia soaking up the sun in April 2017 before they went off to Monaco with their wives.
Mariah Carey and Will Ferrell
We so did not see this one coming! The Elf actor recently supported Mariah during one of her Las Vegas shows and the singer took a pic of them afterwards posting to her Instagram "Shake and bake!! Thank you for coming to my show last night !! #elf forever!!"
50 Cent and Bette Midler
They made friends when they worked together on the New York Restoration Project.
Helen Mirren and Russell Brand
They became friends on the set of Arthur and have remained close ever since.
Eminem and Elton John
They performed together at the 2001 Grammys, but have since stayed in touch and remain friends. When Eminem was struggling to get sober, he called Elton and asked him for advice.
Kim Kardashian and Mel B
They became close friends after Mel moved to LA back in 2012 and Mel was even at Kim’s wedding to Kris Humphries and she got an invite to Kim’s baby shower when she was pregnant with North West.
Emma Thompson and Arnold Schwarzenegger
They met when they filmed Junior in the early ‘90s and have stayed friends since.
Kate Hudson and Fergie
They might seem like an odd pair, but these two love to walk red carpets together and they go to parties together and everything.
Jim Parsons and Rihanna
They met when they were recording voice overs for the animated film, Home and have been close ever since.
