Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling and More Celebs Who Have Been Friends Since They Were Kids

If you're a Hollywood star, your childhood friends usually have a limited number of roles available to play. They can be a loyal sidekick, your crew's comical mascot, or maybe the personal assistant who will eventually take you down in a bloodless celebrity coup.

But for a lucky few stars, the people they grew up with became celebrities themselves, with their own fans, their own love interests and their own trending topics.

It must be a welcome surprise. After all, it's lonely at the top, but it's a little less lonely when your childhood friends are there, too.

In honor of International Friendship Day – commonly celebrated on the first Sunday in August – we're rounding up the celeb pairs who have known each other since before they were famous.

Cher Heading to DWTS: I'm Singing, Not Dancing

Originally posted 10/28/2013 08:15PM

No one was more stunned than Cher when she recently found out Dancing with the Stars will pay tribute to her decades-long music career on the Nov. 4 show.

"It's always strange when people do something like this. You're not thinking about those kinds of things," she tells PEOPLE. "It just always takes me by surprise. It just does."

Cher will sing her hit "Believe" and her new song "Closer To The Truth" on the show, as well as serve as a guest judge, but won't be dancing because of a foot injury she sustained years ago. "I am waiting to have an operation," she says. "The doctor got a little crankier and said I have to do it."

Even if she could dance today, you won't find Cher dancing on DWTS as a contestant. "Aren't I old enough now not to be a contestant anymore?" the singer, 67, says. "Haven't I got past the contestant part?"

How does Cher keep up with her demanding schedule and still manage to look so good at 67?

"I kill myself!" she told PEOPLE at a recent party to promote Closer to the Truth, her 26th solo album, at Tao Downtown, where she caught up with old friends and posed for pictures with some of the many drag queens in attendance.

The singer, who recently went blond, spent a whirlwind week promoting the album in New York City, including a stop by Late Night with David Letterman, and plans to embark on her 49-city Dressed to Kill tour in March, at the age of 67 years young.

"I think I'm some freak of nature," she joked. "I'm starting to believe it myself."
