7 sweet things celebrities have said about their real-life BFFs
Get ready to tag your BFF, because today is National Friendship Day! How it doesn’t coincide with National Pizza Day, we’ll never know — but it’s still exciting because BFFs are what make this whole life thing worth living (pizza also does that, but you get what we’re saying).
Hollywood is filled with celebrity friendships, but it’s sometimes hard to tell which ones are temporary friendships that are basically publicity stunts for upcoming movies, and which are the real ride-or-dies.

Raise a glass to solid friendships, and enjoy these adorable quotes celebs have said about their IRL besties.
