25 celebrity duos you may not have known were BFFs

From Matt and Ben to Taylor and Emma.

IF YOU KNOW who Rita Ora and Cara Delevingne are, you probably know that they’re best mates.

Seriously, they won’t stop going on about it.

If you don’t know who they are, firstly they’re a pop star and a model “of the moment”, and secondly, you may be interested to hear about some other famous pairings.

From ones we all knew about like Matt and Ben, to ones we really didn’t (Taylor Swift and Emma Stone?), here is a rundown of celebrity BFFs…

    ZACH BRAFF AND DONALD FAISON: Maybe it was method acting, maybe it was bromance, but these onscreen besties took it offscreen in a major way and have been hanging out all over the place ever since. Donald even had his wedding at Zach's house. YouTube/zachndonald

    TIFFANI THIESSEN AND JENNIE GARTH: This is almost too perfect for words. Kelly from 90210 and Kelly from Saved by the Bell - best mates? Well it's true. According to Jennie, after some initial bad blood on the set when Tiffani joined the cast of 90210, they became best friends and have been ever since. YouTube/sexiilexxie

    BUSY PHILLIPS AND MICHELLE WILLIAMS: These two have been matesos since Busy joined the cast of Dawson's Creek. Busy was constantly at Michelle's side in he aftermath of Heath Ledger's death and has said she loves her "...deeply. Almost as much as I love anyone. But we don't do it." That's cleared those lesbian rumours up so! AP Photo/Chris Carlson

    SANDRA BULLOCK AND RYAN REYNOLDS: Rumours flew when these two were at each others' side in the aftermaths of their respective divorces, but they insist they're always been just good friends. We love the idea of them LOLing it up together. AP Photo/Matt Sayles

    TOBEY MAGUIRE AND LEONARDO DICAPRIO: These two became mates from meeting each other at auditions, and made a pact to try to help each other get parts in things they were cast in. Thus, they are often seen in each other's film/television work. Isn't that sweet! AP Photo/Kevork Djansezian

    NICOLE KIDMAN AND NAOMI WATSON: These two became friends as young actresses in Australia and have stuck together ever since. Just last week Naomi credited Nicole for her support before her career took off, “She kept saying, ‘It’s just going to take one thing, one thing, Nay, and you know, if you’re in a hit film…then everything changes.” AP Photo/Chris Weeks

    BEYONCÉ AND GWYNETH PALTROW: This duo were introuced by their husbands and became firm friends straight away. Just last week Beyoncé said this about Gwyneth "She is incredible, she's a great friend on every level." Are we wrong in saying there's something slightly unseemly about this pair?

    KATE WINSLET AND REESE WITHERSPOON: According to Reese, they became friends when Kate moved into the neighbourhood. "Imagine my good fortune when Kate Winslet moved into my neighborhood, rang my door bell and said, 'Dahling Sam [Mendes] is off shooting, and I believe our children are the same age. Could they possibly have a play date and oh, by the way, it's almost 9 o'clock and I've had nothing to drink, do you have any wine?'" Amazing. AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill

    JESSICA BIEL AND JENNIFER GARNER: Apparently they haven't looked back since the bonded during the filming of Valentine's Day, with Jennifer even joking about swapping partners during a Marie Claire interview.

    PENELOPE CRUZ AND SALMA HAYEK: Salma and Penelope's friendship started on the set of Bandits, where they were almost in a plane crash. Penelope said, “We almost died. At that very moment a thought came across my mind that if I were to die at that moment at least I’d die with my best friend.” Aaaaaaaaaaaah... AP Photo/Dario Lopez-Mills
  • 25 Celebrity BFFs

    KATY PERRY AND ALLISON WILLIAMS: When Katy took Allison as her date to the Grammys last week lots of people were surprised but apparently they've become really close over the past year after being introduced by their boyfriends. Katy is apparently not so close to Rihanna, her former celebrity partner in crime, anymore because of the whole Chris Brown debacle. We can understand that. Photo by Jordan Strauss/Invision/AP

    MATT DAMON AND BEN AFFLECK: Childhood friends who made it big, we love Ben and Matt. If you need a reminder of why they're great, just google their 1998 Oscars acceptance speech. Peter Jordan/PA Archive/Press Association Images
  • 25 Celebrity BFFs

    NATALIE PORTMAN AND RASHIDA JONES: Both actresses and Harvard graduates, we suppose they have a lot in common. Natalie says of Rashida, "She would fight beasts 10 times her size to protect the people she loves. She is the kind of friend who can sub in and love you through the times when you can't necessarily love yourself." Sure that's what you want, isn't it? YouTube/churrinfu
