10+ Actors Who Are Super Tight With Their Costars

Hollywood is full of acting duos who work so well together.

Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, Richard Gere and Julia Roberts.

Because of this strong chemistry, a friendship flourishes off-screen, making potential collaborations in the future even more possible.

Here's a modern take on 10+ actor pairings who work so damn well together.

1. Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves

The actors have been friends for over 32 years! So precious!

During this time, they've starred in four movies together: Bram Stoker's Dracula, A Scanner Darkly, The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, and Destination Wedding.

If that doesn't show their love for each other, maybe this will: Keanu once refused to make Winona cry on set.

This took place during their 1992 film, Dracula.

She said that the director wanted the others to make her cry for a scene, but they all refused.


2. Viola Davis and Denzel Washington

While they're most known for their collaboration on 2016's Fences, they actually worked together before then when Denzel directed Davis in the 2002 film, Antwone Fisher.

Washington recalled to People how in the zone Viola was on set. "So I knew what to do. Leave her alone and just watch."

3. Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey

They go together like dynamic acting duos Richard Gere and Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan.

They got their start in the iconic How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and reunited in 2008 to play ex-husband and wife in the movie, Fool's Gold.

Matthew once said that his favorite thing about co-star Kate was how comfortable it was to be around her.

Speaking with E.T., Matthew sang the praises of the then 23-year-old actress.

"She's adorable," Matthew smiled. Aww! We need more movies of them together!

4. Seth Rogen and James Franco

These two go way back. They first shared the screen in the beloved 1999 TV series, Freaks and Geeks.

Since then, they've become a dynamic comedy duo in several films, including Pineapple Express, This Is The End, and the controversial film, The Interview.

Seth once shared one of his favorite anecdotes with Franco while filming *Pineapple Express*.

He had come up with a joke that he thought might be stupid, but in the next take, Franco said the jokes and made everyone on the set laugh.

5. Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson

While you would think Owen would make lots of movies with his brother, Luke Wilson, he prefers Ben. They've starred in 12 movies together!

"We just enjoy each other's company and have fun working together," Ben told IGN.

6. Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore

Viewers fell in love with their chemistry ever since they played romantic interests in The Wedding Singer. Since then, they've reunited on screen for the films 50 First Dates and Blended.

Turns out, these two are super close off-screen, too.

"She's cool [and] solid as rock, just like she is in real life," he told *ET*.

He also said that he's always up to make another movie with her.

"Any time Drew wants to -- she's gotta tell me and then I'll do it. But now she's busy with that show. I love her on the show."

7. Meryl Streep and Stanley Tucci

The pair starred together in The Devil Wears Prada and Julie & Julia.

One time, they even cooked together in preparation for the latter. "I said, "I don't mean to get too methody on you, Meryl, but we need to cook together."

He told *The Guardian* how they went out shopping, then made blanquette de veau and a tarte tatin at her apartment.

He said that Meryl is not unlike her famous cook's character, as she is a wonderful cook.

Are we even surprised?

8. Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig

These comedy powerhouses have been working side-by-side ever since they got their start on SNL.

While promoting their film, The Skeleton Twins, Hader said that playing a vulnerable character next to his dear friend (Wiig) made it easier.

9. Sarah Paulson and Cate Blanchett

The pair first met in the 2015 movie, Carol. At first, Paulson had been incredibly nervous to work with the two-time Academy Award winner.

In the end, it was Cate who put her at ease. "[Sarah's] one of those people in the industry who everyone loves, and [her] reputation just preceded [her]."

10. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler

These two go together like bread and butter. Just utter perfection.

They've collaborated on SNL, Mean Girls, Baby Mama and even hosting duties, such as their recent time co-hosting the Golden Globes. We can always expect a good time with these two.

But as it turns out, these two go way back. Even before *SNL*!

Amy recalled in her memoir that they met in improv class.

"She said there was another new improviser in another one of her classes whom she thought I would really like. Her name was Tina and she was like me but with brown hair.”

11. Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie

Marvel fans will be glad to know that these two are just as close off-screen as they are on!

They've starred in several films together, such as Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, and Avengers: Infinity War.

While on Jimmy Fallon, Mackie shared how he and Stan first bonded.

"[Sebastian] had this awful wig on, and literally in the middle of scenes, they'd have to cut because the wig would fall off," he said.

"So, I'd make fun of his wig and he'd make fun of my calves. Once I realized I could give him junk and he could give me junk and we were cool, it was great."

12. Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson


Thanks to their work together in Thor: Ragnarok, Men In Black: International, and the upcoming film, Thor: Love and Thunder, these two are slowly becoming more of a dynamic duo.

While speaking to Refinery29, Tessa even compared their friendship to other iconic Hollywood pairings (like many on this list).

13. Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Kevin Hart

Ever since first appearing in Central Intelligence alongside one another, Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart have been practically attached at the hip.

Their relationship is playful, self-deprecating, and downright hilarious. I could watch these two insult one another all day long.

14. Donald Faison, Zach Braff, and Sarah Chalke

Zach and Donald gave us one of the most memorable TV bromances of all time during their unforgettable tenure as John Dorian and Chris Turk on Scrubs.

A quick scroll through Zach's Instagram page reveals just how much he truly loves Donald and vice versa.

15. Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore

Cameron and Drew forged their forever bond while they were filming the high octane action/comedy Charlie's Angels.

The best friends and former co-stars recently revealed on The Drew Barrymore Show that they even have a cute nickname for one another — Poo Poo.

16. Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner

The Stark sisters first met while they were still young girls on the set of Game of Thrones.

Since filming has wrapped, Sophie and Maisie have been constant fixtures in each other's lives. Sophie even asked Maisie to be her Maid of Honor.

17. Adam Sandler and Chris Rock

Chris and Adam were castmates on Saturday Night Live together and quickly forged a friendship that has stood the test of time.

During an interview with Extra, Chris proudly admits that Adam has kept his counsel for most of their professional lives.

18. Brad Pitt and George Clooney

Brad and George stole the screen in the classic crime caper Ocean's Eleven. They remain friends to this day and have what appears to be a brotherly kind of affection for one another.

George has admitted that one of his favorite pastimes is pulling pranks on Brad.

19. Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, and Lisa Kudrow

The Friends stars have never strayed from one another and do all that they can to keep their friendship alive and well.

The starlets are billiards fans and enjoy nothing more than a riveting game of pool with one another.

20. Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio

During an interview with Glamour, Kate revealed that she and Leo still talk on the phone all the time.

Kate revealed, "We’re very, very close and sometimes we do quote the odd Titanic line back and forth to each another[sic], because only we can, and we find it really funny."

21. Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston

Adam and Jennifer make quite the comedic duo. They first appeared on-screen together in Just Go With It and more recently in Murder Mystery.

What many fans don't realize is that Jen and Adam have been best friends since they were 14-years-old.

22. Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson

Woody and Matthew first met on the set of the reality TV rom-com, EdTV and reunited years later for HBO's True Detective.

During an interview with Howard Stern, Matthew admitted that Woody is just one of a handful of actors he's remained friends with over the years.

23. Norman Reedus and Jeffrey Dean Morgan

While Daryl Dixon and Negan may have absolutely despised one another (and for good reason), Jeffrey and Norman are the best of friends as friends can be.

The Walking Dead co-stars bonded immediately over their shared passion for motorcycles.

22. Penélope Cruz and Salma Hayek

Penélope and Salma became best friends while they were filming the action/western Bandidas back in 2006.

During an interview with Vogue, Salma said humor is what helps their friendship thrive: “The best thing about Penélope’s sense of humor is that it’s primarily about herself," Salma joked.

23. Ben Affleck and Matt Damon

Matt and Ben first appeared on-screen together in the coming-of-age sports drama, School Ties — but they'd been friends for years prior.

The Good Will Hunting stars grew up just mere blocks away from one another and even attended the same high school.

24. Tobey Maguire and Leonardo DiCaprio

Leo and Tobey started off as rivals and would often compete against one another for roles as teenagers.

Their first film together was Don's Plum, back in 1992. Leo and Tobey haven't appeared on film together since their polarizing performances in The Great Gatsby.

25. Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak


After introductions were made on the set of The Office, Mindy and B.J. entertained a short-lived romance. It turns out Ryan and Kelly aren't meant to be.

In real life, however, B.J. is the godfather to Mindy's daughter Katherine.

26. Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans

For years, rumors have swirled that Scarlett and Chris were more than just friends — a claim that both actors refute wholeheartedly.

According to Scarlett, she regards Chris the same way that she would her own brother.
