The Sexiest Best Friends in Hollywood
What's better than one hot star? A hot star with a hot friend!
MATT & JOE
The Carnegie Mellon School of Drama classmates reunited when Manganiello made a cameo on Bomer's show White Collar and again when the duo showed off their incredibly buff bods as male strippers in Magic Mike. "Matt is one of the funniest people that I know, so the two of us together, we were just laughing our asses off the whole time," Manganiello told AfterElton about filming with his college friend.
MATT & BEN
Perhaps the most famous of all Hollywood bromances, Affleck and Damon's friendship started when the guys were young. Fast-forward through Good Will Hunting, Sexiest Man Alive titles and more major moments and it's clear they're in it for the long haul. "You're friends when you are young, you have a certain life," Affleck told PEOPLE of their evolving relationship. "Then in your 20s you have a different life. In your 30s you get married and have families." And for these two, always together.
JUSTIN & JIMMY
It's a friendship founded in laughter. The two always cracked up in Saturday Night Live skits, and proved that famous friends come in handy when Timberlake was Fallon's first guest on Late Night. They've rapped together, honored each other at awards shows and when Timberlake wed Jessica Biel, Fallon was among the guests.
BENEDICT & TOM
These two dashing Brits have undeniably great dance moves and are self-proclaimed best friends (they starred together in 2010's War Horse). But as for who is the most charming? "The more charming person is the person that admits the other person is more charming, so Tom Hiddleston is more charming," Cumberbatch joked to MTV.
BLAKE & ADAM
The potty-mouthed Voice mentors couldn't hide their blossoming bromance when the show began — but just don't use that "B" word around Levine. "We're just friends. It's called a friendship!" he told PEOPLE in 2012. Known for their pranks (Shelton once Tweeted Levine's phone number, and Levine sent Shelton a gigantic copy of his Sexiest Man Alive cover), the two like to keep each other laughing, even since Levine's departure from The Voice.
JOHN & GEORGE
MICHAEL & MILES
Three times is a charm! The That Awkward Moment costars had such great chemistry on screen, they were picked to star in The Fantastic Four reboot together and are rumored to share the screen a third time in an upcoming comedy from their That Awkward Moment director. Whether they're taking shoe selfies or showing off their cooking skills on TV, their cool chemistry is palpable.
LEO & TOBEY
The talented two bonded as child actors and spent the next couple of decades dealing with fame and fortune together. "We both were these young, very enthusiastic, ambitious young men that really wanted to get our foot in the door," DiCaprio told the Associated Press. The guys worked together in 1993's This Boy's Life and in 2013's The Great Gatsby, and are regularly seen dining in Vegas and in the front row at Lakers games. "Leo and I have a lot of trust and respect for each other," Maguire told PEOPLE.
DEREK & MARK
The Dancing with the Stars pros' friendship is actually more familial. Hough and sister Julianne lived with classmate Ballas and his family in 1998 when they moved to the U.K. to attend London's Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts. "With Derek, blood couldn't make us any closer," said Ballas, who also played in a band with Hough before starting his solo career. The guys' dreams came true when they both landed on DWTS and their brotherly bond continues to grow.
JOHN & ANDY
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, to Mayer returning the favor by taking over Cohen's Watch What Happens Live for a surprise birthday celebration.
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."
