Tell Us Which Actors Had The Most Exquisite Onscreen Chemistry Of All Time

No one compares to Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez in Only Murders in the Building.

I'm just gonna cut to the chase: One of my favorite things of all time is watching two actors who have truly exquisite onscreen chemistry in movies and TV shows.

And yes, romantic chemistry between two actors is always amazing, but do you know what I love watching most of all? Onscreen chemistry beyond romantic relationships! Whether it's between best friends, enemies, family members, coworkers, acquaintances, or another dynamic I can't think of right now, it's honestly an incredible thing to witness.

So that made me want to ask you, dear reader: Which actors had the best platonic onscreen chemistry in movies and TV shows?

Maybe you believe Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, and Awkwafina were perfect in Ocean's 8, and only they could capture what it means to be part of a big friend group.

Or perhaps you think Chadwick Boseman and Letitia Wright's chemistry as T'Challa/Black Panther and Shuri in Black Panther was truly unmatched, and every scene they're in together was witty, golden, and hilarious.

Or maybe you'll never, ever get sick of Sandra Oh and Ellen Pompeo as Cristina Yang and Meredith Grey on Grey's Anatomy because they redefined what a deep and meaningful friendship truly looks like between two women.
