Long hours on set can lead to plenty of time for bonding, and that can lead to lifelong friendships. Here, 30 celebrities who've found their BFF in tinseltown and gotten the chance to work alongside them.

Cara Delevingne & Rihanna

Delevingne and Rihanna met at a fashion event five years before they shared the screen in Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Apparently, when they first met, Rihanna walked up to Delevingne and "slapped [her] on the bum." While their relationship has included fun and games here and there, the women also have a close bond: "No matter where either of us are in the world, we know we can just pick up the phone and unload on each other, and that we are always ready to listen or offer advice," Delevingne shared.

Jennifer Aniston & Jason Bateman

These two keep their friendship low-key, but they've worked together on five different movies!

He always gives you deep connection, full attention, authenticity, and some of the deepest belly laughs that I can remember. We are so very proud of you."

Jimmy Fallon & Justin Timberlake

This bromance began in 2002 when Fallon hosted the MTV Video Music Awards, and it was basically love at first sight for the pair.

Their relationship developed when Timberlake hosted SNL a few years later and the duo created the recurring sketch "The Barry Gibb Talk Show." Timberlake and Fallon have since become seemingly inseparable in the media, and Fallon even presented Timberlake with his MTV Video Vanguard Award with a speech so sweet, it'll give you a toothache.

The relationship between these two has been a rollercoaster ride since they met as writers for The Office. They've dated, broken up, made up, and established themselves as Just Friends in the 15 years since they met. "We kind of fell in love through [writing for the show], and then dated on and off for a couple of years, and now we are just, like, best friends," Kaling told Vulture. "Like, real best friends. It's the kind of friendship you have when you are embedded with someone, that you can only get by putting in that insane amount of time with people."

Brad Pitt & George Clooney

We love a bromance! These A-listers have starred in several movies together, including the Ocean’s movies and the Coen Brothers’ comedy Burn After Reading.

This girl gang starred together in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, and their sisterhood extended off screen, too. They’ve been in each other’s weddings and celebrated each other’s pregnancies. Amber Tamblyn shared the key to long-time friendships with MTV News: “The four of us are so vastly different that [it] kind of brings us together, in a weird way, because we learn so much from each other, and we're constantly checking in and texting each other for different types of advice. That's what makes really good friendships, when you have key principles that connect you, but then at the same time, you have somebody that can teach you,” she said.
