Whatever tabloid we pick up, we always see the famous rubbing shoulders with the even more famous. What we don’t see is the meaningful friendships they have cultivated with their childhood besties, who are neither famous, nor trying to mooch off their fame. YES! Those kind of friends DO exist!
Here are some non-famous celebrity besties that you probably didn’t know of..
- Kendall Jenner & Fai Khadra
The pair took to the spotlight last year appearing at several high profile events, including Justin and Hailey Beiber’s wedding. Kendall joked about starting a family with Fai but, don’t get any ideas, those two are strictly friend-zoned!
- Jennifer Lawrence & Laura Simpson
Laura & J.Law met at an event where neither knew anyone and bonded over their mutual respect for Chandler Bing, according to Laura’s blog. Laura was Jen’s date to the 2014 Oscars and she also introduced her to her now-husband Cooke Maroney!
- Chrissy Teigen & Jen Atkin
Hairstylist Jen Atkin and Chrissy Teigen can be seen on social media hanging out together quite often. Chrissy, John and Luna’s quarantine haircuts were all thanks to Jen, seeing as they are such good friends, spending most of their time together!
- Rihanna & Melissa Forde
Melissa and RiRi have been best friends for 2 whole DECADES! Yes, you read correctly. 20 years is a long time. Melissa wrote about their friendship saying “Hold onto every genuine person you find in this world… It’s almost a real one Birthday @badgalriri 15 years of friendship and counting babe and you know I’m riding faevaaaa! Wishing you continued blessings on blessings in everything you do!!! Love you more than i love chocolate and only you know how deep of a love that is.”
- Selena Gomes & Ashley Cook, Courtney Lopez & Raquelle Stevens
Selena Gomez, although has many a celeb buddy, nothing beats her non-celeb squad. Selena, Raquelle, Ashley and Courtney even paid homage to their friendship with matching tattoos. They also appeared in Raquelle’s “Giving Back Generation” series together!
Don’t these just restore your faith in true honest friendships? God bless such friends!
