Celebrity friendships seem odd, don’t they? The other day I saw a picture of Billie Piper, Dominic Cooper and Lily James having a drink in the park and I could help but wonder how any of them met.

I guess that sort of makes a bit of sense since they’re all actors, but every now and then you get two chums who have absolutely no business being mates and you can’t help but wonder.

Only recently it transpired that Kanye West and Elon Musk are mates and that seemed pretty strange – I suppose they are both rich oddballs – and it got everyone thinking ‘who else out there likes someone they shouldn’t?’

Well, these lot…

1. Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart

2. Meryl Streep and 50 Cent

5. Kris Jenner and Jennifer Lawrence


This one apparently started when Kris showed up to Jennifer’s birthday party and presented her with her cake. They then became best friends…

The two bonded as Pitbull would send Travolta pictures of what he would look like bald and in a twist, Travolta then shaved his hair off.

Thanks, Mr Worldwide!

7. Ed Sheeran and Courteney Cox

The Friends star let Sheeran live in her beach house while he was writing music. That’s how close the two are.
