7. Kim Kardashian and Nicole Richie
Kim and Nicole were among the brightest of Hollywood's "golden youth." Nicole is the daughter of legendary singer Lionel Richie, and Kim is a reality TV star. They became friends when they were 12 years old, and since then they have been best friends, despite periodic reports in social media about their arguments and quarrels.
8. Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato

9. Robert Pattinson and Tom Sturridge
Tom and Rob have been good friends since school. Neither fame nor the rumors about a love triangle with Kristen Stewart could ruin the guys' friendship. Paparazzi often shoot the celebrities walking together in the park or sitting in a bar.
10. Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds
Though fans of these two actors really hoped that after starring in the film The Proposal (2009) Sandra and Ryan would tie the knot in real life, the celebrities announced that they were "just good friends." Sandra is often present at Ryan's movie premieres to support her dear friend.
