What would you do without your best friend? You call her after a bad day at work and she immediately recommends you meet up for drinks so you can vent. He waits for you with a smile at the finish line of your first marathon, even though it’s freezing and it took you six hours to finish. Though you appreciate your best friend all the time, June 8 is National Best Friends Day and a chance to really show your favorite person some love. How about a friendship double-date with seven celebrity best friends?
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler
It’s an election year, and we’d like to know what Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin really think about Donald Trump’s baffling road to the nomination, the state of the Republican party and why the hell it’s taking so long for Hillary to bury Bernie Sanders.
Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox
Besties on mega-hit comedy Friends and in real life, Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox have a friendship that’s still going strong more than a decade after Rachel and Monica took a final curtain call. The two are so tight, Cox asked Aniston to be the godmother to daughter Coco. Fun fact: Cox actually initially auditioned for the part of Rachel Green. It went to Aniston, so we’ll always affectionately know her as “Monica.”
Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake
Come 5 o’clock, you just need a laugh. Late night’s hilarious bromance of Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake recently cracked us up over hashtags and the history of Saturday Night Live.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Tracy Anderson
Between Tracy Anderson’s super-effective workout regiments and Gwyneth Paltrow’s fabulously delicious and healthy cooking, the two make the ultimate #fitfam. After a winter of indulging in all the comfort food Long Island has to offer, a night out with the two of them would provide the ultimate kick in the ass.
Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King
Because we need to know what to read this summer.
Ben Affleck and Matt Damon
Staying in touch with your childhood best friend is tough, especially once life gets in the way, but Ben Affleck and Matt Damon provide some inspiration. They lived two blocks away from one another growing up, attended high school together and then went on to claim the Oscar and Golden Globe for Best Original Screenplay for Good Will Hunting in 1997.
Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer
After playing nice all day, sometimes you just want to keep it real. Enter Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer, who exude that vibe with humor to boot in an age where we tend to get carefully scripted stock answers from celebrities.
