Platonic guy friends in pop culture

We hear a lot about bromances in popular culture and female BFFs are everywhere. Genuine male-female friendships, however, are harder to come by. If you believe When Harry Met Sally there is no such thing as just friends, but dig beneath the surface and they do exist.

We've scoured the world of cinema and TV to find the very best of platonic guy friends; the kind of charming but low-profile blokes who negotiate their female friendships without even a whiff of romance. From loyal work colleagues to devoted childhood mates and fashion-savvy shopping buddies, give it up for our favourite platonic guys in pop culture...

Do you have a favourite platonic guy pal? Or have we missed one out? Let us know in the comments below or on Twitter
