Romantic love seems to be a wonderful mystery we can never explain. Although poets and songwriters can put many of our romantic thought and feelings into poems and songs, love is so inexplicable we need the help of science to explain it. That’s why two people of opposite gender have a deep admiration for each other and have a sweet bond even when they are not officially a couple.
And Hollywood co-stars sometimes have really strong chemistry and need to constantly ward off rumors that they are more than just friends. In other words, they can feel each other’s love and don’t need a romantic relationship. The couples themselves are already romantic.
We think that the strongest bonds are forged in friendship, and compile a list of the 7 most adorable platonic relationships in Hollywood.
