I have the best friends in the world, and they’re all so different from each other! I have the tough girls (Shelley and Holly), the gorgeous jokesters (Laura), the eco-conscious hipster (Courtney) and the fashionistas (Lucy and Jas). But once in a while, when I’m watching TV or a movie, I’ll see a celeb I think would make a wonderful make-believe best friend. Here are 7 celebs who’d make fabulous best friends!
1. Keira Knightley
Keira Knightly and I would be fantastic BFFs because we have so much in common — our last names both begin with “Knight” and we’re both flat-chested and fine with it. I love her class and sophistication, and I know she’d keep me on the righteous high road, rather than in the low-brow trenches with the common ignorant folk. Plus since we’re the same size, we could share clothes.
2. David Sedaris
I love him for his snark, and I just know he’d be a lot of fun to people watch or boy shop with. We’d go to an outdoor mall wearing dark sunglasses and quietly tear the ill-outfitted people walk by. Oh, we’d be discreet, but very, very mean! Then we’d obsess over our own physical short-comings.
3. Taylor Swift
Could anyone be sweeter than the lovely Taylor Swift? It’s just not possible. She’s also got great fashion sense, and is so forgiving and polite (ala the Kanye West at the Grammy’s episode) I know she’d be a wonderful bestie.
4. David Boreanaz
David Boreanaz (aka Special Agent Sealy Booth or Angel) would make a great BFF because someday, perhaps in a moment of drunkenness or extreme, unwarranted generosity, we could become best-friends-with-benefits. What? It could happen. And even if it didn’t, he’d still make a fantastic fake high-school reunion date.
5. Angelina Jolie
My friend Holly is gorgeous, and is the only girl in my circle of friends who still gets into scraps at the bar. She’s tough, tattooed, but so strikingly pretty she’s disarming… just like Angelina. If I needed a friend to help me kick someone’s ass, it would be her… Holly, that is. And if Holly wasn’t available, I’d want Angelina from the Tomb Raider movies.
6. Zooey and Emily Deschanel
Zooey and Emily Deschanel are both gorgeous, brilliant, and talented, and they would make marvelous BFFs for my sister and me. My sister would pair up with Zooey, and they’d go off and be gorgeous fashionitas while Emily and I would sit and drink tea and talk about brain things while still looking very pretty in our own rights.
7. Jane Austen
I’m not sure Jane Austen would count as a celebrity, but why not? I’d love to have Jane as a BFF… she’s wicked smart, a touch cynical, with great taste in men. I’d run all of m boyfriends by her for approval, since I don’t know anyone better at ferreting out a cad.
I can’t imagine having better friends than the ones I have in real life, but don’t these celebs make great make-believe besties? Which of these celebrities would you want as a friend, and why? Or is there another celeb you think would be a better friend? Please share!
