Hollywood is a very small community — this is why many stars end up dating one another or become star-studded BFFs. While some of these friendships are formed after working together and mingling in the same group of friends, there are a few that pre-date fame and fortune and go all the way back to their childhood! Here’s a list of 15 celebrities you probably didn’t know are childhood friends!
15. Ryan Gosling and Justin Timberlake
Most of the celebrities on this list know each other from their days at school together, but Ryan Gosling and Justin Timberlake crossed paths as co-workers! They were both apart of the Mickey Mouse Club as kids and became fast friends who hung out in between shoots and even lived together at one point when Gosling’s mother moved back to Canada. In an interview with The Jonathan Ross Show in 2013, Timberlake said he and Gosling were partners in crime: “We were crazy. We, like, skipped tutoring. Going to the park, to the Honey I Shrunk the Kids set. We’d have milkshakes. Oh man, we were so gangster.”
