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.

The Spoils of Babylon Review: Epic Nonsense Starring Tobey Maguire & Kristen Wiig

The Spoils of Babylon, premiering Thursday on IFC (10 p.m. ET/PT) and produced by Funny or Die, is more correctly titled – with a significant loss of magnificent pretentiousness – Eric Jonrosh's The Spoils of Babylon.

It also bills itself as an “epic television event,” but in truth boils down to a mere six half-hour episodes.

And although Babylon boasts a cast that starts somewhere in the A-list (Tobey Maguire, Kristen Wiig, Will Ferrell), it stoops a little to accommodate a few highly respectable character actors (Tim Robbins, Michael Sheen). Then it improbably winds down to Haley Joel Osment, the former child star of The Sixth Sense, and Val Kilmer.

Mr. Rogers Headed for the Big Screen: Who Could Play Him?

It won't be an easy sweater to fill.

"There's only one person in this whole world like you," Fred Rogers liked to say on his long-running children's TV show. But now the difficult task begins of finding someone just like Mr. Rogers – or who can at least capture his essence – for an upcoming biopic.

A film about Rogers, who died in 2003 at age 74, is in the works at Treehouse Pictures based on a script by Alexis Jolly, a staff writer on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Deadline.com reports.

Two longtime, famous-name pals are back together.

After a two-year professional break to spend more time with his family, Tobey Maguire returns to the big screen by teaming up with his longtime pal Leonardo DiCaprio for director Baz Luhrmann's new 3D adaptation of novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1925 classic, The Great Gatsby, opening May 10.

"We are like any other buddies. There's a lot of laughing and chatting between us," Maguire told PEOPLE at the film's New York City premiere on Wednesday. "We enjoy doing a lot of things we have in common, like basketball. We like to play and talk about basketball."

Best friends for nearly 25 years, Maguire, 37, and DiCaprio, 38, first met in 1990 during the casting for Parenthood, a one-season TV spin-off series based on director Ron Howard's movie starring Steve Martin (before it was revived for TV – successfully – in 2010). At the time, DiCaprio landed the lead teen role, while Maguire was handed only a couple of lines.
