8 Surprising Celebrity Friendships Will Make You Do A Double Take

While most celebrities are bound to cross paths on the red carpet or at other industry events, it’s no surprise that some stars become friends with each other. But some famous pals form the most surprising friendships that nobody could have expected, many becoming BFFs over the years. Often, opposites attract, and these iconic duos prove it.

Jennifer Lawrence and Adele

This unexpected (and hilarious) duo are secret besties. While the Oscar-winning J-Law is known for her quirky sense of humour, Adele is the queen of ballads – but what exactly do they have in common besides their talent? Based on clips of the two together, quite a lot! Often seen having epic nights out on the town, the most famous video of the two together is at an NYC bar where they played drinking games and hung out with drag queens. In an industry where appearances are everything, we adore the genuine friendship between these two.

Serena Williams and Meghan Markle

These two powerhouses met in the mid-2000s but majorly bonded in 2014 at the DirectTV Celebrity Beach Bowl. Both royalty in their own right, Serena attended Meghan’s wedding and hosted her baby shower. Apparently, “girly stuff” is at the heart of their friendship. Despite being iconic entrepreneurs and American personalities, the duchess and the tennis star can still connect over a fabulous pair of heels or that new shade of lipstick they’re obsessed with.

Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King

These TV legends have been best friends for ages, but how exactly did Gayle and Oprah connect? It all boils down to fate. It all started during a blizzard when the two were working at the same news station years ago. Oprah, a news anchor at the time, offered production assistant Gayle a place to crash on her couch so she wouldn’t have to brave the winter storm. Since then, it’s been road trips, deep talks with a glass of wine, and making each other laugh non-stop. After 46 years, this friendship is going strong – their catchphrase is, “No matter what, I’m here for you.”

Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway

Although these two personalities seem very different from a distance, they seem to have more in common than you’d think. Wilson asked Hathaway for a spontaneous selfie at the 2013 Critic Choice Awards, and they’ve been friends ever since. From rap battles to red-carpet mischief, Rebel and Anne show that opposites really do attract. The authenticity of their friendship gave them incredible on-screen chemistry for their hit movie, “The Hustle.”

Jennifer Aniston and Selena Gomez

We’re here for this intergenerational friendship! Jen and Selena met through their manager, whom Jen called “extremely supportive and wonderful.” Jen said of Selena: “She’s just like a little cherub that I feel like I wanna take care of.” People saw the depths of their friendship at the 2015 Golden Globes when they danced together at an after-party. Although their friendship has been kept primarily private, their rare selfies prove how accurate this friendship is.

Ayesha Curry and Lindsay Lohan

The friendship between “Mean Girls” star Lindsay Lohan and Food Network celebrity Ayesha Curry is a surprising one that no one expected, but their bond runs deep. They met long before co-starring in “Irish Wish” on a trip to Dubai many years ago. They’re so close that Ayesha and her basketball star hubby are the godparents to Lindsay and her husband Bader Shammas’ son.

Taylor Swift and Lena Dunham

If you’re wondering how a glam country queen and the controversial creator of “Girls” got together, you’re not the only one. Taylor sees herself as a good girl, but Lena provides her with feistiness, resulting in a balanced dynamic filled with good-natured shenanigans. The friendship began on Twitter, where Swift responded to Dunham praising her music, saying she loved “Girls” on HBO. After that, Dunham slid in her DMs, saying how excited she was to become friends with the singer.

Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer

Long-time best friends Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer have been close for over 20 years, and there’s an IG photo to prove it. They met in the 90s when Melissa and hubby Ben Falcone performed with an LA comedy group called The Groundlings, which Octavia would regularly see. The stars of the action comedy “Thunder Force” couldn’t be more different – Melissa rules the comedy world, while Octavia tends to pursue more serious roles. Still, their friendship has endured over the years, and it’s beautiful.
