We love finding out that some of our favorite celebrities are best buds. What we love even more, is learning they were best buds BEFORE they had paparazzi following them and Twitter followers hanging on their every character. From Gwyneth Paltrow and Maya Rudolph to Tyra Banks and Kimora Lee, you probably never would have guessed that some of these superstar best friends have been confiding in each other since before they were ever in the limelight.
Do you want to know who did Madonna‘s makeup before she made it big? Or when John Cusack and longtime pal Jeremy Piven first started hanging out? Some of these stories of accidental college roommates, high school pals and young starlets struggling to make it will warm your heart, and may even have you reaching out to your own bestie for a cuddle. These stories of longstanding friendship prove that the ones who are there for you from start always will be, no matter what fame and fortune has in store.
