Friendship is a bond of great strength and love between two people. It isn’t a big thing. It’s a million little things. A true friend is a friend who stands by you when the world is against you. They are probably the only people who will understand the depth of our silence than our words. They may not be the person who walks with us our whole life but they are one of our best memories.
In Hollywood, we also have many duos that we call “platonic soulmates”. Having time working with each other in one or two films, they have many good times together and continue to keep in touch. After the film’s shooting, these friends can help each other land roles, defend against gossip magazines, or go to the same events. How nice it is to have someone you call “best friends” in a competitive place like Hollywood. Here, we’ve compiled a list of acting couples who proved that platonic soulmates do exist and are ready to show you!
