10 Celebrities We’d Like To Have As Best Friends

Life would be so much better if you could have a celebrity for a best friend. They’d take you to the best restaurants, help you shop at the best stores, and you’d always have the most recent iPad. But we don’t want the friendship of just any famous person, so we went one step further and chose ten people who we think would be particularly awesome to know. Check out who made our list, and don’t forget to check out the premiere of “BFFs” on April 4th. (Sponsored by Best Friends Forever, premiering next Wednesday at 8:30/7:30 on NBC)

1. Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling got his start on television, and appeared on “The Mickey Mouse Club,” “Are You Afraid Of The Dark?,” and “Goosebumps.” That information (combined with the above photo of intense inter species bonding) indicates that Gosling believes bedtime stories are a non-negotiable, and that drooling when we haven’t even been to the dentist is no biggie.

2. Susan Sarandon

When Susan Sarandon isn’t acting, she’s playing ping pong at one of her various SPiN establishments around the country. Her interest in intramural sports suggests she’s the one person in the world who’s going to make us work for a win in flip cup.

3. Betty White

Betty White has been in show business since 1939, which is absolutely incredible. Her dedication and hard work are inspiring, and even though hanging out with her would mean just standing next to her while she continued to be the best, it’s really appealing.

4. Zooey Deschanel

Zooey Deschanel is musically gifted, so you’d never want to invite her to karaoke night. But you could definitely call her when that baby across the hall won’t stop crying, or when you to manufacture one of those stuffed animals with the belly that lights up while it hums a lullaby.

5. Alec Baldwin

Alec Baldwin is an esteemed New Yorker, so his friendship would mean access to the best spots and sporting events in the city. But it would also mean relaxing on a rooftop every Wednesday in terrycloth robes and wondering why it’s not free to spay and neuter your pet, and what color the Empire State Building should be on your birthday.

6. Jennifer Lawrence

Before Jennifer Lawrence was an actor she was a cheer leader and played field hockey and softball, even though she didn’t want to. But she fulfilled her commitments, which is impressive because we’re much older than she is and we don’t even pick up our dry cleaning when we’re supposed to.

7. Bill Murray

Bill Murray wanted to be a doctor before he became an actor. He even took some premed courses at Regis College in Denver before he dropped out and went on “Saturday Night Live.” But more importantly, the stitches they teach you to do in Bio I aren’t that different than the kind they actually teach you in medical school, right?

8. Meryl Streep

Look at this regal creature— it’s no surprise she initially wanted to have a career in opera. But if she were our friend, she’d help class ourselves up a bit. She might even be able to convince us to spend our money on art that will enrich our minds instead of on impulse buys, like cobras or guinea pigs.

9. Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Joseph Gordon-Levitt falls on our radar because he doesn’t believe actors should be celebrities. He’s said numerous times that he thinks teachers and scientists should be famous instead of entertainers, and this suggests he’s someone who will talk to you about anything… including why dimes are smaller than pennies.

10. Jessica Paré

You should know Jessica Paré because she performed that “Zou Bisou Bisou” routine on “Mad Men” last Sunday. But we’d like to be her BFF because she doesn’t believe nudity should be reserved for classy movies (since she was topless in “Hot Tub Time Machine”). Obviously, going on a bender with her would result in either dual arrests or the renaming of an entire district.
