If you are at least a bit curious about celebrities personal lives (and this is not about paparazzi style interest in the latest divorce or the future cheating adventure) you may have wondered a few times what do these people do in their spare time, except for showing up in the news for all sorts of sordid reasons? Who are they friends with? Who are they spending time with? What are their hobbies?
Of course, if you are young, hot and famous, the media probably will be interested more in who you’re dating than who is your best buddy (and occasionally follow you in the park while you have a hot – dog), so this time we will take a look on some celebrity actors who share a true bromance with other actors and have what we might call a “normal” life which includes best friends and sports games buddies.
1. Ben Affleck & Matt Damon
Now this is not a new one. They are friends from childhood, attended college together (though in different grades, as Matt is two years older than Ben), shared an Oscar Award and international fame and glory and it seems that they are best buddies, while their true bromance looks like being strong and never fading. Of course, Matt Damon was spotted having couple dinners with Robert Downey, Jr. + One and while nobody managed to accurately trace back the beginning of their beautiful friendship, we just hope that Ben is not jealous.
2. Patrick Stewart And Ian McKellen
Ahhh! Captain Picard and Gandalf are the Internet’s favorite true bromance, as these two are just hilarious and incredibly close. And when you see them wearing those hats, your faith in humanity must get restored in an instant. Apparently these two bundles of awesomeness and immortal friendship and love call each other “Sir”, while having no trouble in pulling pranks one on the other or sharing a few bags of garbage to prove that being together with your best buddy is more important that the landscape you found yourselves into.
3. George Clooney and Brad Pitt
This is not that kind of close, tight, “call me every evening to tell me goodnight” type of relationship, but they do share a close relation and apparently, a lot of affection and the constant need to pull pranks on each other. George and Brad see each other as often as their schedules allow them to, but maybe this is that type of friendship when you don’t need to hold each other every day to still have that spark and keep the romance going for decades.
4. Great Gatsby and Spiderman: True Bromance for 25 years
Of course we are talking abut Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire, two actors who not so long ago shared the silver screen in Leo’s Great Gatsby, but who also share a personal story, as they know each other for 25 years. They met at an audition and starting then, they came a long way to fame and fortune, only to share that special relationship only guys can have: chat about basketball and look to each other for advice, while Leo seem to play the “awesome uncle” to Tobey’s kids.
5. Benedict Cumberbatch and James McAvoy
The U.K. media knows this even better than us, these two share quite the friendship, to the extent that Cumberbatch, England’s sex symbol and one of the hottest, most talented actors of his generation declared that his friend James McAvoy is far better looking and even “gorgeous on screen.” Ah, a guy’s honesty when complimenting another guy… priceles…
We also heard that Ed Norton and Mark Ruffalo share more than a Incredible Hulk costume, they also share a great friendship. So wasn’t it odd to have Mark take over the Hulk and turn it into a smashing hit? How did Ed feel about this? Intriguing… However, If you have knowledge of other examples of true bromance, don’t be shy in sharing, we always love a good story.
