Phoebe Buffay once said, “Boyfriends and girlfriends will come and go, but this is for life,” thereby coining the catchphrase for friendship for years to come. Phoebe was right. Friendships are the breath of fresh air that we all require when the world becomes far too suffocating. Although the celebrity world is usually stereotyped as a place of fleeting connections, the truth is that there are several friendships that have sustained the transience of the spotlight. Let us take a look at a couple of long-standing friendships in the industry that are just goals.
Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox
Who would have thought that Monica and Rachel, who were on-screen best friends, would turn out to be real-life best friends as well? They met each other for the first time when the shooting of Friends started in 1994. Over the years, their bond only grew stronger. It is said that the two were really supportive of each other when their lives were haunted by personal problems. The best part of their friendship is that Jennifer Aniston is Courtney Cox’s daughter’s godmother! How cute is that?
Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez
How can we forget the absolute pride in Taylor’s eyes when Selena was giving her speech at the AMAs? The best friend duo never misses a chance to show off the amazing friendship they share. They met through the Jonas brothers when Taylor was dating Joe Jonas and Selena Gomez was dating Nick Jonas. Eventually, both of their relationships ended, but the friendship between Selena and Taylor stayed and became stronger. Taylor has stated that she will take any opportunity to speak about her best friend, Selena.
Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin
How can two best friends be so perfect together? And how can they have such good pictures together? Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber have been friends for over ten years now. The two models have been seen having fun with each other, attending parties, walking red carpets, and traveling together. When Hailey Bieber started dating Justin Bieber, there were rumors about the different ways in which the relationship could affect their friendship because of Kendall’s history with Justin. However, what unfolded was an even cuter version of their friendship, as Kendall became the third wheel in their relationship.
Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton
Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton go way back. In their interviews, they both stated that they have known each other since they were in preschool together. They’ve known each other since they were children. After the robbery incident, when Kim was mentally shaken, Paris stood by her, helping her overcome the tough phase. And when Paris Hilton was trying to have a baby, it was Kim who walked her through the IVF procedures and introduced her to her gynecologist.
Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio
Titanic, the epic love story, left us bewitched and heartbroken, thanks to the mesmerizing chemistry between Jack and Rose.
