My BFF 4eva Emma Stone: 15 Celebrity Figures I Wish Were in My Life

By Nadia Chaudhury | Celebrities Are Better than You | May 2, 2014 | Comments ()


It’s an established fact that we all love Emma Stone. She’s intelligent, funny, she doesn’t pander to the paparazzi, and she can sure as hell lip sync. Who wouldn’t want her as a best friend (with benefits?!)? I like to pretend we’d go out for dinner, talk about politics, get hella drunk, sing karaoke, stumble home drunk, and text each other as soon as we woke up the next afternoon. It would be simply perfection.

Now that I’ve established my pretend best friend, here are the other celebrities who would satisfy the various roles of my perfect alternate universe:

The Parental Figures
Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton

The duo seem pretty much as close as possible to the fictional Taylors. Kyle’s rougher around the edges than Coach, and Connie’s a bit more laid back than Tami, but the wisdom they both have is priceless.

The Cool Aunt and Uncle
Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman

Megan would take me out for sushi and sneak me drinks (because in this specific scenario, I’d be underage). She’d listen to all my boy tales and give me tips on seducing crushes. Nick and I would build boats in his shop and talk about the best kind of wood for planing.

The Siblings
Lupita Nyong’o and Matthew McConaughey

Lupita would be my eager, super-good-at-everything younger sister and Matthew as the way laid back older brother. I’d love them…but also kind of hate them.

The Best Friends from Elementary School and High School, Respectively
Mindy Kaling and Zooey Deschanel

We would have a clothing swap night and watch ridiculous movies on cable TV while messing around with makeup and fall asleep with candy strewn everywhere.

Tina Fey

It might be because I’ve been on a 30 Rock kick lately, but Tina seems like the kind of mentor who’d be encouraging and ass-kicking all at the same time.

The Best Guy Friend, Straight
Jake Johnson

We’d drink all the beer and eat all the sandwiches and dance ridiculously when the occasion called for it, like weddings and birthday parties.

The Best Guy Friend, Gay
Zachary Quinto

After wandering the city with his puppy and catching something on Broadway, we’d travel to exotic cities and take artsy photos.

The Perfect Boyfriend
Joseph Gordon-Levitt

He’s the kind of guy who’d dress up without being asked to. Make of that what you will.

The Rugged Boyfriend
Zach Gilford

Zach Gilford may have played heart-on-his-sleeve Matt Saracen, but did you know he’s a big outdoors guy in real life? Nothing makes me swoon more than a man who knows how to climb mountains in foreign countries…and worked at the Alamo Freeze.

The One Night Stand
Michael Fassbender

Need I say more?

The After-Work Drinks Co-Worker
Lizzy Caplan

With her snark, Lizzy’d be great at bitching about everyone from the office over sloppy after-work drinks, especially about the overly chatty salespeople.

Music Buddy
Aziz Ansari

Anyone that crowdsurfs during the last LCD Soundsystem show is A-OK in my book.

Party Girl Friend
Jennifer Lawrence

I wouldn’t be afraid to throw up in front of her.

Cashew the Guinea Pig


Nadia Chaudhury dreams about a world where she could go camping with Nick Offerman and Zach Gilford.
