The Word: What if these celebs were BFFs?

Whaddya say Weezy, wanna be friends with Zac Efron?

Hollywood is already filled with weird best friends. You don’t think so? What about Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna, Katie Holmes and Victoria Beckham, Rihanna and Katy Perry, Kanye West and Jared Leto? But hey, if you’re super rich and can’t have normal friends for fear they will sell all of your information to Us Weekly for a nice payday, I can see how you will cling to whomever. Here are a few more couplings we’d like to see happen:

Zac Efron and Lil Wayne
What better way for Efron to show the world that, yes, he can tap dance, but also that he has mean street cred?

Helena Bonham Carter and Rhianna
If you think about it, their closets are probably similarly mad-cap?

Ricky Gervais
and Justin Bieber
Because someone needs to show Bieber what it’s like to have a sense of humor.

Tyra Banks and Kristen Stewart
If anyone is going to teach Stewart how to stand up straight and smize, it’s Banks.

John Malkovich
and Anne Hathaway
Hathaway needs another thespian to whip the annoying out of her otherwise formidable performance skills. Calling John Malkovich!

Drew Barrymore and Lindsay Lohan
Barrymore can show Lohan it’s possible to overcome addiction while still retaining a sense of fun and a career. Wouldn’t that be nice?

Jake Gyllenhaal and James Franco
Because. Wow. Imagine the gay rumors on that one.

Jeff Bridges
and Taylor Momsen
Maybe all Momsen needs to do to chill with this insane angst she’s sporting is to drink a few domestics with The Dude in some California dive bar? I know it’d make me feel better about my daddy issues.

Sarah Jessica Parker
and Dee Snyder
Because, when you think about it, they really might be long-lost twins.
