Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto are, like, super dreamy. Sure, some would say their attractiveness stems from their indisputable good looks or even their stellar performances as Captain Kirk and Spock the latest “Star Trek” installment, but I contest that our admiration for the newly crowned heartthrobs is intrinsically linked to their — wait for it — bromance. Yes, Chris and Zach are BFFs and, if you, like me, have been obsessively watching the duo’s “Trek” press interviews, you know their witty banter and buddy dynamic makes them even more drool-worthy. The pair’s charismatic back-and-forth has quickly catapulted them into the esteemed company of some other famous best buds.
So here’s a look at our five favorite Hollywood bromances (aside from Chris and Zach, of course).
Brad Pitt and George Clooney
Their bromance basically fueled the entire “Ocean’s” film franchise and, let’s face it — not only are these two ridiculously good-looking, but they are just plain cool. Pair Pitt’s family-man persona with Clooney’s eternal bachelor status and these guys seem to complement each other perfectly. Throw in their respective philanthropic efforts and these two are like the Batman and Robin of Hollywood. Come on guys, make “Ocean’s 14.” We want more Pitt-Clooney shenanigans!
Matt Damon and Ben Affleck
These two are like the godfathers of bromance. Long before the term became the go-to phrase for platonic man love, Affleck and Damon were Hollywood’s favorite friendship. They made the classic “Good Will Hunting” together and went on to prove that bromances are probably the longest lasting relationships in Hollywood. Ben and Matt are now both married and even have two daughters around the same age. Awww!
Brody Jenner and Spencer Pratt
Remember Brody’s short-lived reality show “Bromance” where he attempted to find a BFF to replace Spencer? Well, it’s safe to say the fame-loving duo have had their ups and downs — we’ve watched these two break up and make up, but the lifelong buds seem to finally be back to a happy bromance. All is right with the world again.
Ed Westwick and Chace Crawford
The “Gossip Girl” stars can’t seem to escape the constant rumors that their “bromance” might be an actual romance. They’ve both denied the claims and have since been linked to just about every young actress in Hollywood. Being Chuck and Nate sure doesn’t suck.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire
Contrary to the rest of the stars on this list, these two like to keep their friendship on the down low. They are like the Beyoncé and Jay-Z of bromances. Aside from the occasional sighting courtside at a Lakers game, Leo and Toby don’t really ham it up for the photogs — but the fact that the two former child stars have been best friends since they both appeared on the early ’90s TV show “Parenthood” makes them worthy of a BFF shout-out.
