Oprah Winfrey & Gayle King

Kendall Jenner & Hailey Bieber

They work out together, party together, and even cook together. Jenner was one of the first guests to star in Bieber’s Who’s In My Bathroom? series on YouTube where they made mac and cheese in the bathroom.@kendalljenner

Mariska Hargitay & Hilary Swank

Though Hargitay will always be close to her Law and Order: SVU costar Christopher Meloni (aka Detective Elliot Stabler), one of her other real-life BFFs is Hilary Swank. The two showed off their mellow sides with a no-makeup selfie back in May.@therealmariskahargitay

Issa Rae & Yvonne Orji

The Insecure stars are both BFFs on-screen and off-screen. To celebrate the end of 2017, Orji shared this photo of the pair hanging out. She captioned it, “Thankful for this one right here! Spa date & bougie dinner...”@yvonneorji

Busy Philipps & Michelle Williams

Jennifer Aniston & Courteney Cox

A true sign she’s your BFF is when you make her maid of honor. Cox was MOH at Aniston’s wedding to Justin Theroux back in 2015 and was even there to support her friend when the couple ultimately split.@courtneycoxofficial

Jada Pinkett Smith & Queen Latifah

The pair’s 30+ years of friendship started when they were teenagers. “Jada and I can have whole conversations where we haven’t really said anything, but we’ve said a lot,” said Latifah to People in 2017. Paras Griffin/Getty Images
