Stars - they're just like us! Famous or not, everyone needs a shoulder to lean on, especially when times get tough. There are the celebrity friendships we all know about, like Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams, Cara Delevingne and Kendall Jenner (otherwise known as CaKe), Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift... Then there are the A-listers you didn't even know were friends. Read on to find out more about the BFFs that fly under the radar: 

Courteney Cox and Ed Sheeran

It turns out the Friends star has quite the group of, well, friends. Courteney Cox and Ed Sheeran began their unlikely friendship way back in 2013, and the British crooner even crashed at Cox's house for three months so he could focus on his music. "There was no rent, but I made the bed and cups of tea and things like that," said Sheeran of his time with the actress. Of course, he quickly paid back the favour by introducing Cox to her long-time partner, Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid. 


What would you do if you found out you had the same stalker? Become friends of course! The two talented actresses might have a very unusual "love story", but there's no stopping these BFFs.

Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning

Although the former child stars can't remember exactly how they met, their bond of friendship was definitely strengthened on the sets of Twilight and The Runaways. "I can honestly say that my friendship with Kristen is one of the most special bonds in my life. She has held my hair back and talked me through heartbreak. She has always been there for me when I have needed her most and most of all she taught me the power of being one hundred percent yourself one hundred percent of the time," gushed Dakota Fanning of Stewart.
