Celebrity best friends: stars reveal the friendships that get them through thick and thin

In the words of Audrey Hepburn, true friends are families which you can select.

Our girlfriends are the leading ladies in our lives, whom we confide in, celebrate with and grow old with. She's the one person you can be yourself around with zero worry of pretension and feeling embarrassed. 

When we're not around her, we get that horrible empty feeling and if for some reason we haven't spoken in weeks, nothing changes. We pick up right where we left off.

A relationship like this is worth celebrating, which is why we turned to our favourite stars to find examples of great female friendships.

Even the most famous stars need the support system of a best friend and that person is often another well-known a-lister. Whether it's fighting off the paparazzi or preparing for the red carpet, they're able to relate to each other such as Friends duo Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox or fashionistas Victoria Beckham and Eva Longoria.

But surprisingly, a lot of these friendships didn't bud as a result of fame. In fact, some of these celebrity friendships go as far back as days at school. Take a look at these wonderful stories of friendships among some of the most recognisable women in the world.
