3. Justin Timberlake & Ryan Gosling
After becoming castmates on “The Mickey Mouse Club”, the pair were actually brothers for a while! Ryan's mum was still working in Canada when he was offered the role located in Florida so Justin's mum volunteered to be Ryan’s legal guardian in the meantime. Now that’s a bromance and a half.
4. Adele & Jessie J
Jessie J recalls jamming with Adele while they were students at The Brit School in the UK: “We were in the same year. We used to hang out at lunchtimes and have a little jam. We’d sing songs we’d written or perform whatever we were working on.” Oh what we’d do to hear some of those old school duets…
5. Cameron Diaz & Snoop Dogg
Calvin Broadus (AKA Snoop Dogg) and Cameron both attended Long Beach Polytechnic High School in California. She revealed: “He was a year older than me… I remember him, he was very tall and skinny. He wore lots of ponytails. I'm pretty sure I bought weed from him.” Did she sample his gin & juice though?
6. Taylor Lautner & Victoria Justice
Taylor and Victoria were friends ever since they were little and still remain close to this day - so much so that people like to ship them as a couple. Well, they do make the most beautiful pair…
7. Leonardo DiCaprio & Tobey Maguire
Leo remembers REALLY wanting to be friends with Tobey when the 12-year-olds met at acting auditions… and he was right. From living next door to each other, to Leo becoming a godfather to Tobey’s daughter, to even co-starring in “The Great Gatsby”, their friendship has spanned actual decades. Friendship goals.
8. Lady Gaga and Nicky Hilton
Back when she was Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, Gaga was school pals with Nicky. She spoke about her celeb links with Paris and Nicky, saying: “They’re very pretty, and very clean. Very, very clean. You know, I never saw Paris, she was older than me, and it’s funny that the press always write that I went to school with the Hilton sisters, but I actually only went with Nicky.”
