Memorable Celebrity BFF Moments
These pairs and trios prove that not even the limelight can dull the luster of true friendship
The times have changed. With a full spectrum of messaging, video chatting and dating apps at our convenience, it’s easier than ever to meet and connect with friends. However finding true, time-testing friendships? That isn’t quite as simple.
Thankfully, these celebrities have proven that some bonds can withstand time, distance and the surveilling eyes that come with being thrust into the limelight. Ahead, we recount a few celebrity BFF moments that we couldn’t help but go aww over.
Selena Gomez and Francia Raisa
Actress Selena Gomez has been open about her battle with lupus, bravely taking time away from the spotlight to rest and heal when needed. Last December, Selena’s best friend Francia Raisa gave her the “ultimate gift and sacrifice” by donating one of her kidneys to the singer-actress. The Hollywood sweetheart shared the story to her fans with an Instagram post—a snap of her and her BFF locking hands in their hospital beds.
Big Bang’s G-Dragon and Taeyang
Even the toughest, chicest, most famous icons have a soft side—and G-Dragon’s happens to be for his best friend and bandmate, Taeyang. Taeyang got hitched to his long-time girlfriend Min Hyorin earlier this year, and while he slow-danced with his wife at the reception, G-Dragon was caught blotting away his tears at the sight.
Lovi Poe and Heart Evangelista
Standing by her best friend through thick and thin, Lovi Poe sent fellow actress Heart Evangelista a box of chocolates and words of encouragement upon the announcement of the latter’s pregnancy last month. Pledging to be along for the ride every step of the way, we don’t doubt that Lovi continues to stand by Heart after the unfortunate loss of her twins.
Michelle Williams and Busy Philipps
What do you do when you can’t visit your friend after a sinus surgery? Send her a cardboard cutout of yourself, of course. Cougar Town star Busy Philipps took to Twitter to share a hilarious selfie with her BFF’s 2D twin.
SHINee’s Taemin, EXO’s Kai and VIXX’s Ravi
While it’s no secret that Taemin and Kai have been best friends since their trainee days, it’s a lesser known fact that Ravi of VIXX is also a member of their circle of friends. Recently, Ravi guested on a variety show and opened up about his friendship with the two idols. Admitting that they don’t communicate often, he cleared up that they are in fact, still extremely close. He even teared up while talking about Kai, who suffered the loss of his father early last month.
