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

Originally posted 08/03/2014 07:00AM

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.

PHOTOS: Neil Patrick Harris and More Stars Posing with Their Gender-Bending Selves

Originally posted 06/06/2014 10:00AM

Hedwig and the Angry Inch's Neil Patrick Harris isn't the only big TV star up for a Tony Award Sunday night, but give him credit – he is the only TV star nominated for playing the role of a transgender East German glam-rocker.

In honor of Harris's transformation, we've decided to see what the How I Met Your Mother star looks like posing with his gender-flipped self, along with an octet of actors who – whether they played trans characters, or just cis folk forced to cross-dress by the demands of plot – also became their own personal Orlandos.
