It’s fun to watch inseparable best buds grow and support each other throughout their Hollywood careers. Here, we’ll take a look at the top five celebrity bromances.
Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have been Boston-based best buds since they were ten years old. The two wrote the screenplay for Good Will Hunting together in the late 90’s, and have watched each other’s careers skyrocket ever since. Both Matt and Ben cite one another’s support as the reason they’ve been able to keep moving forward in Hollywood, despite difficulties and setbacks.
Lenny Kravitz and Jason Momoa are an unlikely bromance, as Momoa was married to Kravitz’s ex-wife, Lisa Bonet. From riding motorcycles together to supporting one another at family movie premieres, Kravitz and Momoa have said that they feel like brothers. Jason and Lenny got along right away, bonding over shared interests. Jason publicly praises Lenny’s parenting skills, saying that Lenny is able to keep his cool over difficult teenage issues better than he can. Lenny and Jason both say that a deep feeling of family and love for their kids keeps them focused on putting love first.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire became friends when they used to run into one another at auditions in the 80’s, before anyone knew that they’d both grow into the Hollywood giants that they are today. Leonardo acts as “Uncle Leo” to Toby’s two kids. Both Leonardo and Toby consider themselves to be competitive people, and part of the reason they believe their friendship works so well is their different paths in the acting world. Leonardo sees himself as the next Jack Nicholson, while Toby tends to see himself as the next Tom Hanks, according to sources.
Zach Braff and Donald Faison are known for their BFF-chemistry on Scrubs, and it turns out their brotherly love extends into their real-life relationship. After starring on the show for nearly a decade together, the two have an unbreakable bond. Zach is the godfather to Donald’s son, and Donald was at Braff’s wedding to celebrate alongside his long-time pal. The two host a podcast entitled “Fake Doctors, Real Friends with Zach and Donald” where they unpack a Scrubs episode each week.
Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul are known for their killer banter and brilliance in the lab on Breaking Bad, and it turns out their friendship has long outlasted their hit show. The two currently run a liquor company together–Dos Hombres Mezcal. While their friendship has grown over the years, the two state that Bryan served as Aaron’s mentor in the Breaking Bad days, similar to the way their characters Walter and Jesse related to one another. The two are thrilled to be able to work together once again.
