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.

Meet the BEGOTs: These Actors Are Going for Gold at the BAFTAs

Originally posted 02/13/2014 06:00PM

If an EGOT – the elusive combination of Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony that only 11 individuals have ever claimed – is one of Hollywood's highest honors, then it stands to reason that a BEGOT (that's an EGOT plus a BAFTA, and yes we did just make it up) is an even more impressive accomplishment. It's one better, is it not?

By our count, a mere four people have ever completed a BEGOT, and shockingly, only two of them were Brits: Audrey Hepburn, John Gielgud, Mike Nichols and Whoopi Goldberg. Still, nearly every artist in Hollywood should aspire towards a BEGOT (once they hear about it, that is), and Sunday night's BAFTA Film Awards offer a number of artists the chance to check off the next box in the BEGOT checklist.

Below, see the five stars working on their BEGOTs at the 2014 BAFTAs. Only one of them is British, which just goes to show you that the BEGOTs belong to us all, guv'nah.

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck: best friends – or frenemies?

The childhood pals jokingly infer the latter in this chuckle-inducing video that's a case study in one-upmanship.

The Oscar-winning duo are auctioning off a double date with themselves on Omaze.com to raise money for Affleck's Eastern Congo Initiative and Damon's water.org. The winner gets an all-expenses-paid trip to Los Angeles to see whether these two are really as insecure and bumbling as they seem here.
