Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Channing Tatum (which JGL mentioned on "SNL" the night he did the Magic Mike monologue)


Matt Bomer and Lee Pace (they've been best friends since high school, having gone to the same high school together)


Zoe Kazan and Carey Mulligan (I found this out after researching Ruby Sparks, which Kazan wrote and and that featured her boyfriend Paul Dano. I also found out that Paul Dano loves Crispix, which actually ended up in the script for Ruby Sparks)


Justin Long and Jonah Hill (this makes sense because they were in Accepted together, but they were also college roommates)


Joshua Jackson and Scott Foley (these two started paling around because they were both teen stars around the same time with "Felicity" and "Dawson's Creek," and Jackson's relationship with J.J. Abrams through Scott Foley was actually helpful in Jackson landing "Fringe." I don't know why they're hanging out with the guy from "The Office.")


Charlie Hunnam and Jamie Bell (they became close friends during filming for Nicholas Nickelby. In fact, they are also maintain close friendships with Anne Hathaway and Romola Garai).


Jesse Eisenberg and Justin Bartha (they met a decade ago on a movie audition for a movie neither got and became great friends; they were in a play together in 2011).


Robert Downey, Jr. and Matt Damon (no idea how these guys became friends except that they're both amazing, but apparently they have couples dinners together).


Kyle Chandler and Lorenzo Lamos (I could find no pictures of them together, but Chandler is the godfather of Lamos' son. That is just bizarre).


James McAvoy and Benedict Cumberbatch (this is probably common knowledge in the UK, and wouldn't seem out of the ordinary for anyone who has seen Starter for 10)


Jon Hamm and Sarah Clarke ("24") (these two actually went to prom together in high school)


Ed Norton and Mark Ruffalo (no idea if that made Ruffalo's decision to take The Incredible Hulk awkward)


Clint Eastwood and Brad Pitt (who knew?)


Anna Kendrick and Adam Lambert (he was in "American Idol," right? Oh, Anna. You get a pass because you're adorable.)


Liam Neeson and Helen Mirren (they used to date)


Connie Britton and Lauren Graham (again, no images available, but they've been friends since rooming together in their early acting days. BEST. PILLOW FIGHTS. EVER.)


Sam Rockwell and Justin Long (Long is also friend with Rockwell, which is why they appear together in Movie 43)


Steve Buscemi and Mark Boone, Jr. (been friends since working stand-up together at the beginning of their careers)


Christain Bale and Winona Ryder (been friends since Little Women; in fact, Ryder introduced Bale to his future wife)


Jessica Chastain and Michelle Williams (former roommates and good friends (Williams is also close to Busy Phillips from her "Dawson's" Days)
