The world has been buzzing ever since gossipmongers announced that Will Smith and his lovely wife of 14 years, Jada Pinkett Smith, are heading for Splitsville. Sure, the actors have since denied it, but let's face it - we may be living on borrowed time until one of Hollywood's hottest power couples signs a stack of divorce papers and enters a lengthy public battle of He Said/She Said.
It seems like it was yesterday that Will and Jada were making gaga faces at one another on Oprah and gushing about how their love was etched in stone. If these guys can't make it, who can? Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell - sit your butts down and start smooching.
Before you spend the next few hours painting your nails black, layering on the blinc Mascara and throwing paparazzi photos of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie into a makeshift backyard bonfire, reconsider - it turns out there are actually scores of famous duos in Tinseltown who have stuck by each other's side throughout the years. Who needs romance when you have bromances? Here are three that deserve serious recognition.
1. Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. Long before these boys won worldwide acclaim for penning Good Will Hunting, Matt and Ben were simply two whippersnappers tearing it up on the streets of Cambridge, Massachusetts. It was only a short while later that they attended the same high school and starred together in the hit 1992 drama School Ties, allowing their friendship to blossom. Nowadays the A-listers can be seen hugging it out on red carpet events and even vacationing together!
2. Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna. These muy caliente Mexican actors may be best known for costarring in the hit Y Tu Mama Tambien, but it turns out they've been two peas in a pod since appearing on the same telenovela program, El Abuelo y. Recently, the dynamic duo lent their unforgettable talents to the 2009 soccer flick Rudo y Cursi and became the proud CEOs of Canana Productions. Coincidentally (or not?), each of the chiseled actors entered fatherhood months apart. Salud!
3. Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau. The modern day version of Laurel and Hardy is perhaps best knowing for macking it to bunches of beautiful babies in the hit film Swingers, but it's the gaggle of comedies that followed suit (Made, The Break-Up and Couples Retreat ) that truly solidified their status as bros. We're sure the boys are celebrating at the Dresden in L.A. to mark the 15th anniversary of Swingers this year. Yes, a decade and a half later, they're still money.
