Gone are the days when people flocked to cinemas to watch films about epic romances. Everyone knows that it’s all about the bromance now!
We’ve already talked about our favorite Bollywood bromances, but Hollywood isn’t far behind. In fact, George Clooney and Brad Pitt practically invented the concept! And now, duos like Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill are carrying the torch. But The Man From U.N.C.L.E. co-stars are not the only ‘boyfriends’ in Hollywood. If you love the adorable bromantic moments that metrosexual man brought with him, you’re in the right place. Here are 10 off-screen Hollywood bromances that we just can’t get enough of:
George Clooney and Brad Pitt
The bromance to shame all other bromances. George Clooney and Brad Pitt might be poles apart in some ways, but they’re just the same in others! From the Ocean’s Trilogy to playing pranks on each other, there’s so much we love about them. In fact, they might just be Hollywood’s hottest bromance!
Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen
Age is no bar for a good bromance, and this duo is living proof of that! Though they play nemeses on-screen, Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen are known for their shared love of Twitter, Shakespeare and sci-fi! McKellen even performed Sir Patrick Stewart‘s wedding ceremony… Aww!
James Franco and Seth Rogen
Move over, Kimye! You may have good chemistry, but it isn’t as amazing as James Franco and Seth Rogen. Their bromance has remained #Unbroken, right from 1999’s Freaks and Geeks to The Interview in 2014. The only thing funnier than their movies? Their recreations of music videos and magazine covers!
Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg
When two guys are comfortable enough together to star in skits like Motherlover and *%ck in a Box, you know they’re best buds! Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg have made SNL a real delight. We live for the times that JT features on The Lonely Island‘s works, and we know you do, too!
Jay-Z and Kanye West
Success attracts success. Jay-Z and Kanye West are the perfect example of this. The two rap moguls’ record, Watch the Throne, was one of the biggest albums of 2011… And for good reason! Ye and Hov are a winning combo, in every sense of the phrase!
John C. Reilly and Will Ferrell
Just thinking of Step Brothers makes us LOL. John C. Reilly and Will Ferrell‘s rapport made them the perfect picks to play brothers. And boy, the product was hilarious! But that’s not all. They’ve also cracked us up with their amazing Funny or Die videos. If you still had any doubts about their bromance, the duo actually kissed at a Lakers game! OMG!
Matt Damon and Ben Affleck
Matt Damon and Ben Affleck aren’t just an ordinary bromance. They’re an Oscar-winning bromance. How many others can say that? The actors, who have both been proclaimed People Magazine’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’, are one of Hollywood’s original bromances- from before bromances became fashionable.
Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller
Humor is the foundation of every true bromance, which certainly works in this duo’s favor! Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller, who won us over in Zoolander, are all set to return in the sequel to the smash-hit. They have also charmed us with blockbusters like Starsky & Hutch, Meet the Fockers and Night at the Museum! Need we say more?
Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire
We’ve all bonded with our best friends over sporting events, and celebrities are no exception. Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire, who frequently attend basketball games together, are one of our favorite bromantic couples. The only thing more adorable than their rapport in This Boy’s Life might be their courtside pictures!
Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman
Though fans have gotten a little too carried away, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are the perfect bromance. After all, you can’t play Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson without being great friends!
