From John & Andy to Justin & Jimmy: Hollywood's Most Enduring Celebrity Bromances
Rob Lowe & Chris Pratt
The Parks and Recreation alums have kept their bromance going years after the show came to a close in 2015. Lowe and Pratt's favorite bonding activity seems to be golf based on their Instagram accounts.
"Literally- the best day ever on the links with #ChrisTraeger himself @robloweofficial," Pratt captioned a shot from one of their golf get-togethers.
"Rolo and I got the album cover. Now we’re going offline for a while to focus our music. Stay tuned. Big things coming," Pratt jokingly captioned another photo of him and Lowe out on the golf course with a beautiful sunset in the background.
This summer, however, the two decided to switch things up. Lowe and Pratt were spotted paddle boarding in Santa Barbara, California, with Pratt's wife Katherine Schwarzenegger. The group seemed to be in great spirits, seen laughing and chatting in between time in the water.
May the adventures of Chris Traeger and Andy Dwyer live on forever!
John Mayer & Andy Cohen
The singer and late-night TV host have been nurturing their bromance for years, from a 2015 road trip to see the Grateful Dead's last live shows, to celebrating Mayer's 40th birthday in Brazil last year, to Mayer returning the favor by taking over Cohen's Watch What Happens Live for a surprise birthday celebration.
"It is so hard to go dark on Andy because we talk so constantly. I couldn’t give away that I was in New York. It was the hardest 12 hours of my life," Mayer said of keeping his appearance on the show a secret.
Cohen admitted in Entertainment Weekly that while their friendship may seem "unlikely," their bond is strong.
"John Mayer and I have what some would consider an unlikely friendship. He’s one of our greatest living guitarists, and I’m regarded as the dude that stirs the s— on late-night TV," Cohen wrote. "We do have one thing that bonds us: our love of the Grateful Dead. So when the band did five shows this summer — their last ever — we used their Santa Clara, California, gigs as an excuse to take a road trip and bro it up."
Matt Damon & Chris Hemsworth
While the actors' recent outing to Monaco with their families was news to fans, Damon and Hemsworth's bromance is nothing new. Back in 2014, the Thor star waxed poetic about Damon: "We became friends around the time I started to work, and I've really benefited from watching how he handles himself," he told GQ. "Matt's just a normal guy who has the movie-star thing figured out."
Hemsworth has even said that Damon taught him a thing or two. "I learned everything there is about being sexy from Matt," the PEOPLE Sexiest Man Alive alum said on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that same year. The pair even embark on double dates together, with wives Luciana Barroso and Elsa Pataky in tow.
Matt Damon & Ben Affleck
Matt Damon & Jimmy Kimmel
Damon sure loves his bromances! Aside from his long-lasting friendship with Ben Affleck, The Martian actor is also known for his 12-year faux rivalry with late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel. The stars have attended couples therapy together, roasted each other in different interviews and, of course, have those famous songs.
Justin Timberlake & Jimmy Fallon
Timberlake and Fallon first met backstage at the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards, back when Fallon — then a Saturday Night Live cast member — served as the award show's host for the first time, and Timberlake was making his performance debut as a solo artist. "I remember talking backstage during those VMAs. I was totally nervous and you were nervous and we both ended up having good night," Fallon told GQ in 2011. "We're good luck to each other — like each other's rabbit foots."
Ryan Reynolds & Jake Gyllenhaal
The Life costars shared an instant connection on the set of their film. "He's a wonderful man," Gyllenhaal said of Reynolds during an appearance on BBC's The One Show. "It's rare in our industry to meet someone, a contemporary, and there's no competition … There are just some friends you meet at a certain time in your life."
Blake Shelton & Adam Levine
After 12 seasons on The Voice together, Shelton and Levine have formed an unbreakable bond. "I remember when I saw him at the meeting at NBC, I was instantly very taken by him ’cause he was definitely not your typical country artist," Levine told PEOPLE. "He was not a cookie-cutter guy, and the second we met, we were friends. All of the bulls--- that we do comes from a place of love."
George Clooney & Rande Gerber
While Clooney has no qualms about third-wheeling on Gerber and wife Cindy Crawford's dates, the two do enjoy some alone time when working on their joint business venture, Casamigos Tequila.
Patrick Stewart & Ian McKellen
Quite possibly the most enviable bromantic pair in Hollywood, the actors have remained close through the years. McKellen — pictured here dressed-up to perform alongside Stewart at the 62nd London Evening Standard Theatre Awards — even officiated Stewart's 2013 wedding.
Tobey Maguire & Leonardo DiCaprio
Before starring in 2013's The Great Gatsby, DiCaprio and Maguire were 12-year-old child actors. "When I want someone to be my friend, I just make them my friend," DiCaprio told Esquire of the pair's on-set meet-cute. "I literally jumped out of the car. I was like, 'Tobey! Tobey! Hey! Hey! And he was like, 'Oh, yeah — I know you. You're … that guy.' But I just made him my pal."
