Hollywood Bromances

Iconic Celebrity Male Duos

Hollywood can be a very competitive place. While we’ve become used to celebrities fueding and going head to head in this industry over the years, it’s refreshing to see two male celebrities create a bond that both melts our hearts and entertains us. Ranging from actors to comedians to TV hosts, several Hollywood celebrity male duos have become iconic bromances. Here are 10 of them!

Dwayne Johnson & Kevin Hart

When it comes to adventure, The Rock and Kevin Hart instantly come to mind. This dynamic duo has created quite the bromance while starring in adventurous films like Jumanji and made audiences watch on the edge of their seats and warm our hearts with their hilarious friendship. Their amazing on-screen chemistry makes us believe that this friendship goes way beyond the silver screen.

Jimmy Fallon & Justin Timberlake

The year that Jimmy Fallon made his debut as host for the American Music Awards, was the same year that Justin Timberlake made his debut as a solo artist. Through shared anxiety, the pair connected and formed a long-lasting friendship that keeps entertaining audiences. Fallon frequently has Timberlake on The Tonight Show for rap segments and unforgettable skits on award shows that are simply delightful.

Owen Wilson & Ben Stiller

Meeting for the first time on the set of The Cable Guy in 1996, Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller quickly formed a bond and went on to co-star in several films such as Zoolander and Starsky & Hutch. This iconic duo reminds us of what it really means to be young at heart.

Martin Short & Steve Martin

Following their debut film together, Three Amigos, in 1986, Martin Short and Steve Martin became inseparable. The 35-year friendship between these comedy partners led to several joint projects, their latest being the Hulu original TV show, Only Murders in the Building, where they star alongside Selena Gomez.

Matt Damon & Ben Affleck

Childhood best friends Matt Damon and Ben Affleck first gained recognition when they won the Golden Globes and Academy Awards in 1997 for Best Original Screenplay for Good Will Hunting, which they wrote and starred in. Bonded for life through their mutual affinity for acting and filmmaking, the duo just collaborated once again on The Last Duel, directed by Ridley Scott.

Channing Tatum & Jonah Hill

21 Jump Street and its follow up, 22 Jump Street, feature a truly hilarious and unforgettable “duology,” starring none other than the iconic Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill. Shining through their characters and lasting way after filming, this bromance illustrates the meaning of true friendship.

Adam Levine & Blake Shelton

If The Voice has given us anything, it’s the unmatched friendship between Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. No matter how many times you’ve thought about quitting the show, you always tune in for their amazing chemistry and witty banter. While discovering new talents is the program’s main draw, the Levine-Shelton bromance is surely a very close second reason to watch The Voice.

James Franco & Seth Rogen

After first meeting on the set of the 1999 TV show, Freaks and Geeks, James Franco and Seth Rogen forged an unbreakable bond. Following their success on that short-lived show, they’ve worked together on other projects like Pineapple Express, Knocked up and most recently, The Interview. This is one pair that we don’t get tired of seeing together.

Will Smith & Martin Lawrence

Everyone has a ride or die; Will Smith might just be very well Martin Lawrence’s ride. Through their collaboration on the successful detective franchise, Bad Boys, which made its debut in 1995 and they’ve been inseparable ever since. This twosome has grown together and we’re all for it and for any future projects they may share in the future.

Colin Jost & Michael Che

Saturday Night Live stars, Colin Jost and Michael Che have formed an undeniable bromance that is aspirational. From their Weekend Update segments to moving up the comedy ranks together; they’ve certainly rocked the comedy scene together. This comedic duo is one to look up to for holding on to a dream and never letting go.
