13. Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire

These two have one of the most well known childhood friendships that goes way back! They first met in the late ’80s when they both auditioned for the same role. In the ’90s they collaborated on the film Don’s Plum and became members of a young pack of actors who were notorious for their romantic lives. “We were these young, very enthusiastic, ambitious young men that really wanted to get our foot in the door,” said DiCaprio in an interview with the Associated Press. Their friendship has continued on into adulthood. “Every project we do, we talk about. Every single choice I’ve made, I’ve talked to Tobey about and vice versa. We’ve had endless conversations about certain projects and argued with one another and supported one another along the way.”

12. Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie

Many of us know them as co-stars on the reality series The Simple Life, but their friendship goes way beyond that. They grew up in the same neighborhood in Bel-Air. In 2014, in an episode of Watch What Happens Live, Richie explained how her friendship with Hilton works: “Paris is somebody that’s been in my life since day one. I haven’t spoken to her in a while technically, but, if you really want to get into it, my view of a friendship is someone that you don’t necessarily have to talk to every day.”
