Yes, it is common knowledge that Hollywood's elite gravitate towards one another. After all, only another A-Lister can really understand what's it's like for a celeb to constantly be hounded by paparazzi and what it's really like to see camera flashes everywhere. Typical celebrity friendships are not what we're really here to discuss, though. We're not here to talk about how Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner are ultimate friendship goals, or how Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox have been the best of friends since they started filming Friends. No, we're here to talk about who Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston are friends with that Hollywood doesn't really bother to talk about... Well, them and 13 other famous faces.
If you're tired of always hearing about Hollywood's usual celebrity BFFS, and which besties are #FriendshipGoals, then it's time for you to scroll through our list of unlikely celebrity friendships that Hollywood doesn't even bother to tell us about.
15 Kim Kardashian & Kelly Osbourne
We know it seems a little odd to most, given that Kelly Osbourne is nowhere to be seen on Kim’s social media accounts, but don’t let IG or Snapchat fool you, as these two women are said to be pretty close (or used to be, at least).
In fact, Kim invited Kelly to her Bridal shower, but the only reason Osbourne was not in attendance that day was because of the passing of her good friend, Amy Winehouse.
14 Kanye West & Kristen Stewart
From Kim K to her hubby Kanye, we don’t know for sure how Kanye feels about the Osbourne family, but what we do know is that Kanye is also friends with an unlikely celeb (a vampire, actually), Kristen Stewart.
The two were spotted chilling during Paris Couture Fashion week in 2015. Kristen walked the Chanel runway that year, and we’re guessing Kanye was impressed. After all, we all know how fashion-forward Kanye is (or thinks he is).
13 John Mayer & Bob Saget
This one definitely seems a little odd, but singer John Mayer has been friends with Full House star Bob Saget for over 13 years. We all know how close Saget is to his former co-star John Stamos, but it looks like nothing could come between Saget and Mayer, not even Stamos.
When Bob Saget tied the knot in October 2018, John Mayer was actually the one to give a speech at his wedding. It was said that Stamos was a little angry about that in the moment, but we’re sure the two were able to work things out.
12 Robert Pattinson & Vince Vaughn
We talked about one vampire earlier in the article (Kristen Stewart), but she’s not the only Twilight star to have an unusual celebrity friendship in Hollywood, as her co-star and ex boyfriend, Robert Pattinson is said to surprisingly be friends with funny man Vince Vaughn.
The two were spotted hanging out a few times, most notably on a random boys night out in LA in April of 2013. As if the two together wasn’t random enough, spotted with them was also Joaquin Phoenix.
11 Ed Sheeran & Courteney Cox
"No one told us life was gonna be this way"; and no one bothered to tell us that Friends star Courteney Cox is close friends with “Shape of You” singer Ed Sheeran. The two met through Cox’s husband, Snow Patrol singer Johnny McDaid, and it looks like they really hit it off.
To be fair, we can’t imagine anyone not hitting it off with Sheeran, but just seeing these two together is pretty awesome. We wonder what Jennifer Aniston has to say about this duo.
10 Mark Wahlberg & Jimmy Butler
Mark Wahlberg may have portrayed a skilled boxer in the 2010 movie The Fighter, but one thing Hollywood forgot to mention is how Wahlberg and professional basketball player are actually pals in real life. It makes sense given that the two are from Boston, but the two actually met while Wahlberg was in Chicago filming Transformers 4.
We wonder if Jimmy has ever encouraged Mark to take on a role as a professional Basketball player.
9 Kanye West & Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
Kanye West makes his second appearance on our list, but this time, it’s not for his unlikely friendship with a Twilight star, but for his relationship with child stars Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Of course, the Olsen twins need no introduction, but what we are curious about is how this friendship came about. We have to assume the twins became friends with Kanye due to sharing a love for Fashion. Nevertheless, Mary-Kate and Ashley were in attendance for Kanye’s 34th birthday.
8 Justin Bieber & Jennifer Aniston
Now this one is definitely odd, and actually a little awkward, if only for the fact that Friends star Jennifer Aniston is super close to Justin Bieber’s ex girlfriend, Selena Gomez.
We can’t say we’re surprised that Bieber showed off a selfie he took with Aniston in 2015 (who wouldn’t be proud of a selfie with Aniston?), but we’re sure that selfie caused quite a stir, most notably between Aniston and Selena Gomez.
7 Caitlyn Jenner & George Lopez
We already know that the Kardashian/Jenner clan know literally everyone in Hollywood, but this one still managed to surprise us. When Caitlyn Jenner (Bruce Jenner) took part in the 12th Annual Celebrity Golf Classic earlier this year in May 2019 (which was hosted by George Lopez), Jenner wasted no time in expressing her feelings through a post on her IG. On a selfie she posted with Lopez, she wrote: Really enjoyed playing in the George Lopez Classic for an amazing cause!
6 Dwayne Johnson & John Krasinski
This one is definitely random, but we’re loving this celebrity friendship. The Office star John Krasinski and Dwayne Johnson were spotted indulging in a feast in Hawaii. We don’t know if The Rock “was cooking”, but the two looked like they were enjoying each other’s company. In fact, the two have become so close that John dished all the details about their training sessions when he appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. We wonder how Krasinski manages to keep up with Johnson, though.
5 Emma Watson and Nina Dobrev
We’re not surprised when we hear that someone has a crush on Emma Watson, but we think it’s awesome that Nina Dobrev talks about how Emma Watson “is a dream”. The two co-starred in Perks of Being A Wallflower, and apparently, they really hit it off.
Dobrev has even mentioned how down to Earth Watson is, and that just makes us ship this friendship even more.
4 Snooki & Kevin Jonas
Looks like Gym, Tan, Laundry (GTL) brought this unlikely celebrity duo together. It’s no secret that Jersey Shore’s Snooki (Nicole Polizzi) has been hitting the gym hard since appearing on the popular MTV show, but what is pretty low-key is who Nicole has been pulling a sweat with!
She posted a video to her IG account of her workout with Kevin Jonas and trainer Anthony Michael, and she captured the post: “Gym Sqaud”.
3 Jonah Hill & Adam Levine
Superbad and The Wolf of Wall Street actor Jonah Hill, and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine are not only pals, but they’re actually childhood friends. This celebrity friendship might be a little more obvious than some of the others on our list, given that the two are often spotted attending Lakers games together, but Hill and Levine are so close that Jonah officiated Adam’s wedding to now-wife, Behati Prinsloo.
2 Jake Gyllenhaal & Jonah Hill
Adam Levine isn’t the only Hollywood celeb that Jonah Hill is close to! We know that Jake Gyllenhall has a slew of famous friends, but we could add Jonah Hill to that list.
Although it might be a little difficult to imagine what these two talk about when they hang out, we can’t help but to be a little curious (and a little jealous). In the photo above, Hill and Gyllenhaal were spotted hanging out and chatting in New York. City.
1 Ben Affleck & Anna Kendrick
We all know that Ben Affleck’s one and only best friend is Matt Damon, but that doesn’t mean Affleck doesn’t have any other celebrity friends! Ben Affleck and Anna Kendrick both starred in the 2016 film The Accountant, and it looks like a bond was formed between the two!
In fact, Kendrick has even jokingly admitted that she would have wanted to play the role of Robin to Affleck’s Batman. One thing’s for sure, that would be awesome.
