Okay, these two were not exactly friends before as there is an age difference of almost four years. But these actors definitely knew each other because Chloe Sevigny used to babysit Topher Grace. For any aspiring actor, it must have been a dream to have Sevigny as your babysitter considering that she has become one of the most critically acclaimed actresses.
But becoming an accomplished actor was the last thing on Grace’s mind at that time. In fact, Grace had developed a crush on his babysitter. When he was interviewed on “The Jess Cagle Show” he let it drop that he used to blow Sevigny kisses, but only when she was not looking.
Brenda Song & Ashley Tisdale
Though you’d never say that Disney actresses, Brenda Song and Ashley Tisdale, from “The Suite Life of Zach and Cody” are actually real-life buddies. And they were friends before joining the cast of “The Suite Life.” Though she had been accepted the role in “The Suite Life of Zach and Cody,” Song was even more excited when she discovered her friend, Tisdale, was also one of the main cast members.
It was during this time that their friendship really took off. After the actresses gave birth, they became even closer. Of course, nowadays, they don’t quite have as much time to hang out – even if they live 11 minutes away from one another – but they make sure they meet up once a year.
Leonardo Dicaprio & Tobey Maguire
You can’t help watching “The Great Gatsby” (2012) and think to yourself that Tobey Maguire and Leonardo DiCaprio look like they really get on well. And you wouldn’t be wrong for thinking so. Every time, Maguire or DiCaprio are in each other’s company during the film, their eyes light up, faces glow, and smile so genuinely.
That’s because they are real-life friends and have been since age 12. The two men were child actors and met during auditions. It took more than one audition for the friendship to develop, and as kids are prone to do, they just chose to be friends and that was that. Proof that the two are really true friends is that during the production of “The Great Gatsby,” Maguire lived right next door to DiCaprio.
Blake Lively & Penn Badgley
While most viewers were secretly hoping and praying for their onscreen personas, Serena and Dan, to not only get back together but stay together, few viewers knew that the actors behind the scenes were actually friends long before being cast on “Gossip Girl.” One bit of gossip viewers probably know is that the TV show brought Lively and Padgely closer, much closer.
For three years while the series was on the air, the two dated. After three years, their relationship ended. Even if their relationship was over, the two were still friends and used to hang around together on the show’s set. And though they both have since married, the two remain on good terms.
Vanessa Hudgens & Ashley Tisdale
You’d never believe that these two “High School Musical” stars were really friends. Their performances were so convincing. The two Disney stars were not only real-life friends but had been buddies even before the Disney hit. A year before, the two actresses met during a Sears commercial.
Though they were already friendly, being cast together in “High School Musical” just cemented their friendship. In fact, no friendship was easier to cement as the two actresses were cast in the next two films. And cemented it has been. They two are still tight. In fact, when Tisdale tied the knot with Christopher Fench in 2014, Hudgens was one of her bridesmaids. That must have been a real Disney princess affair with two Disney stars at the event.
