In an episode on “The Graham Norton Show,” Tom Hiddleston admitted to playing the elephant leg of actor, Eddie Redmayne. As confusing as it sounds, it is the literal truth. Hiddleston and Redmayne attended Eton College. Though Redmayne is the younger of the two, it was Redmayne who took the role of the lead character in the school play.
Hiddleston had to make do with the role of the front right leg of Redmayne’s elephant. While the two probably got up to plenty of antics in their schooling days, the pair have had quite a laugh about their rendition of E.M. Forster’s “A Passage to India.” While we don’t have any doubts that Hiddleston would have made a fine elephant leg, we’re glad he’s moved on to other projects.
Paris Hilton & Nicole Richie
These two had plenty in common so it was only a matter of time before they were friends. Both were born in 1981 to wealthy dads, grew up in the same area and, as girls, attended the same schools. It was only a matter of time before they were doing everything together: shopping, slumber parties, and gossiping.
They continued as friends into their teens and early adult years, but during early adulthood, cracks in their relationship appeared. And these weren’t just small cracks. They were big enough that even when Richie tied the knot to Good Charlotte singer Joel Madden in 2010, her ex-bestie wasn’t there for the ceremony. Apparently, these two silver-spoon queens still chat but it’s not the same as their childhood days.
Mila Kunis & Ashton Kutcher
Did you know that Mila Kunis’ first kiss was with Ashton Kutcher? Of course, we’re speaking about an onscreen kiss, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it too was the Ukrainian-born actress’s first kiss too. The said kiss occurred in the popular sitcom “That’s 70’s Show.” It was also how Kunis and Kutcher met.
Kunis was only 15 when she first laid eyes on Kutcher while the actor was in his early 20s. So, technically Kutcher wasn’t a kid. The two have been friends ever since the sitcom. They’ve both seen each other get hitched and have other romances, but eventually, their friendship blossomed into romance. Now, if there isn’t a better Hollywood friendship story than this pair falling in love and tying the knot.
Matt Dillion & Brooke Shields
There are plenty of photos in the archives of these two hanging out, so they know each other and have known each other for a long time. However, there have been many speculations that their relationship has not always been platonic. Like the time when Matt Dillion took Brooke Shields out for a date to the Roxy roller disco in the Big Apple.
As they both hail from the state of New York and were both in the entertainment industry from a young age, sooner or later the two would cross paths. While Shields was filming “The Blue Lagoon” and Dillion “My Bodyguard” in 1980 it was believed that the two were dating. Things did not work out but the two continue to be friends.
Tommy Lee Jones & Al Gore
If you traveled back in time to Harvard in 1965, you’d find the strangest thing – former Vice President Al Gore and actor Tommy Lee Jones were roommates. The two were roommates during their freshman year in Dunster House. Before Al Gore decided to study politics, he studied for his Bachelor of Arts in English.
While it might sound like we’re speaking about another Al Gore – not that there are many people with this full name – we’ve definitely got the right person as Al Gore was campaigning to be on the student council on his very second day on campus. Some things never change – including the friendship between the two. In 2000, at the Democratic National Convention, Jones nominated his former roommate to be the Democrat candidate.
