Tina Fey and Amy Poehler met a long time ago, way before SNL. When the talented improv artists were introduced at the ImprovOlympic in Chicago at a 1993 theater class, Amy said Tina was just like her “but with brown hair.”
Since then, they’ve been like two peas in a pod.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire
Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire bonded around their similar backgrounds when they were 12. They grew up in the Hollywood acting scene and were raised by single moms in Los Angeles.
The friendship endured. Naturally, it was a no-brainer portraying the friendship of Jay Gatsby and Nick Carraway in The Great Gatsby.
Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King
Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King’s relationship is legendary. They went from being colleagues to best friends overnight. They were working at a local TV news station when a snowstorm hit.
Oprah invited Gayle to stay for the night, but they didn’t sleep much. Instead, they pulled an all-nighter, not a wink, chatting into the wee hours of the morning. That was back in 1976 and they’re still BFFs to this day.
Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams
Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams don’t just play sisters on Game of Thrones, in real-life they are inseparable. Maisie calls it “the purest form of true, true friendship.”
They grew up together on the set, and behind the scenes, the Stark sisters practically lived together. At New York Comic Con, Sophie spilled, “We just used to sit there and eat and watch stupid videos.”
Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz
Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz have been best friends since teens. They met at a coffee shop that 16-year-old Cameron worked at. “We’re like more than best friends, she’s my sister,” Drew told ET.
“We’ve had the majority of our lives spent side by side, really going through what real life is, which is an everyday high and low and we just have each other’s backs.” In Charlie’s Angels, the two genuinely brought that dynamic to the screen.
