Yep, J Law is as big a fan of Keeping Up With The Kardashians as the rest of us. When she made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel, the Oscar winner spoke at length about the night she drunkenly had dinner with the Kardashian-Jenner mom saying: "I drank five martinis and wound up naked in her closet. I'm dead serious.”

2. Jennifer Garner and Chelsea Handler

The pair have had a fair few girls dates and nights out over the years. Jen and Chelsea seem quite happy keeping their friendship on the down low, but it’s been thought that the comedian was particularly supportive during Garner's "Year of Wine" when she spilt from Ben Affleck.

3. Jon Hamm and Paul Rudd

Jon Hamm and Paul Rudd have been friends for over 30 years – but things didn’t start off so well. When Rudd was in college, he used to go to St. Louis with his roommate (who was a childhood friend of Hamm's) to hang out. Paul used to bring his girlfriend along, who also happened to be an ex of Jon’s, so things were a little awkward at first!

4. Amy Schumer and Ronda Rousey

When Rousey announced that she was going to take a break from UFC fighting back in 2016, long-time pal Amy was at her side – literally. She spent some quality time with the fighting queen on the same day the news was announced, and the pair posted on Instagram to celebrate. And their friendship is still going strong all these years later.

5. Alexander Skarsgård and Jack McBrayer

As bromances go, this one is up there with the best of them. The 30 Rock star was grinning ear to ear at the table next to Skarsgård when he nabbed yet another award for his role in Big Little Lies in 2018, but it turns out they were hanging out together for a whopping five years before that. An unlikely but beautiful friendship!

6. Michelle Williams and Selena Gomez

Michelle Williams and Selena Gomez are a solid unit. While they’ve kept their friendship under wraps for the most part, Selena brought Michelle along to a few red carpet outings in 2015. The singer had recently lost her friend and make-up artist Jake Bailey to suicide, and Michelle was there to support the young starlet.

7. Zendaya and Kerry Washington

Zendaya and Kerry have been working the red carpet together for years. With a ton of killer outfits behind them, they’ve cleaned up at the GLSEN awards, and have supported each other during the times they’ve been subjected to racist remarks on the internet. Girl power forever.

8. Jane Fonda and Lena Dunham

We never saw this one coming. The multiple Oscar winner is a fierce feminist just like Lena, so the pair hit it off when they both ended up interviewing for Paper magazine at the same time. Lena said: "I think you've completely redefined the essence of what it means to age. It's funny, every stressful thing you've done in your life has paradoxically made you fierier and look younger, so I'm hoping that will happen to me."

9. Jennifer Lopez and Lea Remini

We absolutely love these two. Jennifer and Lea have been BFFs forever, and have made tons of appearances together at events as well as talk shows. They’re all over each other’s Instagram too!

After meeting on the set of The Tempest, these two have hit it off big time. Their friendship has been described as a ‘platonic’ love affair, despite their 30-year age gap! When asked to describe his friendship with Helen, Russell said: “It's complicated. It's an unconsummated love affair. An erotic, intellectual tangle of emotions between a Dame and a vagabond. I really love her and I respect her tremendously.”

13. Pamela Anderson and Julian Assange

This is a bit of a weird one. The Baywatch star is apparently super tight with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, and has visited him repeatedly at the Ecuadorean Embassy in Knightsbridge, London, where he has been holed up since 2012 to avoid extradition to the U.S. She’s also spoken at length about him to the press, and has even pleaded on his behalf for a presidential pardon.

14. Kourtney Kardashian and Justin Bieber

These two have caused some serious tabloid frenzies over the years. While some insist they’ve been dating on and off on the down low, the pair say that they are firm friends.

Uh oh.
