15 Celebrities Who Are Childhood Friends
Hollywood is a very small community — this is why many stars end up dating one another or become star-studded BFFs. While some of these friendships are formed after working together and mingling in the same group of friends, there are a few that pre-date fame and fortune and go all the way back to their childhood! Here’s a list of 15 celebrities you probably didn’t know are childhood friends!
15. Ryan Gosling and Justin Timberlake
Most of the celebrities on this list know each other from their days at school together, but Ryan Gosling and Justin Timberlake crossed paths as co-workers! They were both apart of the Mickey Mouse Club as kids and became fast friends who hung out in between shoots and even lived together at one point when Gosling’s mother moved back to Canada. In an interview with The Jonathan Ross Show in 2013, Timberlake said he and Gosling were partners in crime: “We were crazy. We, like, skipped tutoring. Going to the park, to the Honey I Shrunk the Kids set. We’d have milkshakes. Oh man, we were so gangster.”
14. Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts
Australian actresses Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts became fast friends after they met at an audition for an Australian bikini ad. “We had to sit and wait, both in swimsuits, feeling incredibly embarrassed. And neither of us got the job!” joked Watts in an interview with People. Their friendship blossomed when they starred in the 1990 film Flirting. Kidman’s career took off much faster than Watts, but she didn’t leave her friend behind! “She kept saying, ‘It’s just going to take one thing if you’re in a hit film [then] everything changes,’” said Watts, quoting her old friend.
