17. Natalie Portman and Rashida Jones
Black Swan star Natalie Portman and Parks and Recreation actress Rashida Jones have largely kept their longstanding friendship out of the spotlight. However, the fellow Harvard graduates have occasionally appeared together in videos for the comedy website Funny or Die. And Jones has even admitted to turning to her pal for acting tips – in particular, for scenes in Our Idiot Brother in which she had to lock lips with co-star Zooey Deschanel.
16. Kimora Lee Simmons and Tyra Banks
Catwalk queens Kimora Lee Simmons and Tyra Banks go way back. In fact, the two models have been friends since their teens, when they both scored contracts with Chanel. Plus, Banks is godmother to Simmons’ daughter Ming. Still, that bond doesn’t mean that there haven’t been sticky situations along the way, like when the pair met then-Senator Barack Obama in 2005. Banks later told Harper’s Bazaar, “Kimora starts talking crazy, just totally embarrassing me. She walks away, and I’m like, ‘Senator Obama, I have to apologize for my friend.’”
15. Robert Pattinson and Tom Sturridge
English actors Robert Pattinson and Tom Sturridge have been best buds since they were schoolboys at the Harrodian School in London. And it’s clear to see they still enjoy hanging out together nearly 20 years later – most recently, they were photographed with arms around each other’s shoulders at a Van Morrison gig in Belfast.
