In an age of social media, it is rare to find out about a surprising celebrity friendship. But the world deserves to know that Nicole Kidman and Elle Fanning are basically BFFs! The two stunning actresses were all smiles and hugs at this year’s Cannes film festival where they saw each other. Luckily, the cameras caught some photos for us to enjoy.

The closest we have gotten to a surprise celebrity friendship lately has been the Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal bromance. While that was pretty epic, we are super interested in hearing just how Nicole Kidman and Elle Fanning fell in friend-love with each other.

Maybe it’s because they basically look like sisters?

Seriously. We know that they are not really related. But for a second…don’t they look like they are?! Even their dresses compliment one another!

We know they are the best of friends because of this one photo…

That is the look of someone who just spotted their best friend across the room. In Nicole Kidman and Elle Fanning’s case that room just happens to be a red carpet in the south of France.

Obviously, we have no idea what the two are talking about or what secrets they are trading.


We can pretend that they are giving each other tips on how to take care of their beautiful blond hair. Seriously, how the heck does that shade exist?

The two talented ladies just completed work on Sophia Coppola’s latest feature The Beguiled. The movie features a lot of talent and looks pretty interesting from its trailer.

The two must have really jived with one another on the set of the movie.

They shared all sorts of hugs and sweet, supportive smiles while rocking the red carpet together.

Since the film doesn’t come out for a little while, we’ll just need to hope that more photos with the two of them surface because they are seriously giving us hope.
