Hollywood may have some schemers and back-stabbers, but it also has its fair share of celebrity best friends. Biography.com rounds up seven pairs of famous BFFs:

  • Zach Braff and Donald Faison: They've been going strong since they started co-starring in Scrubs. Braff was a groomsman in Faison's wedding.
  • Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart: "Magneto" and "Professor X" are far from arch-enemies in real life. They often post adorable pictures together that go viral on social media, they've starred on Broadway together, and McKellen officiated at Stewart's wedding.

  • Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz: They've known each other since they were kids, but got really close while co-starring in Charlie's Angels. Nowadays, they even go on vacations together.
  • Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire: They've been friends since they were teens, and got close co-starring in This Boy's Life in 1993. More recently, they starred in The Great Gatsby together, and they often go to Lakers games together, too.
