The entertainment industry can be ruthless. One minute, you're rich and famous and the next, you're clamoring even just for a split second of screen time. It's a dog-eat-dog world out there that's for sure. That's why it's great to have a bro whose got your back.
Beyond Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, we look at the hottest celebrity bromances from Hollywood and beyond.
Justin Bieber & Jaden Smith
When you share the same first letter and a killer sense of style, how can you not feel bromantic towards each other? Justin and Jaden are reportedly pretty tight, with a friendship spanning four years (and counting). The two are often seen playing basketball and making music together. In between, they like taking selfies-or should we say brofies?
Brad Pitt & George Clooney
This is one annoyingly handsome bromance we just can't get enough of. They've been best mates for over a decade and have certainly saw each other through every role and every woman each has dated (and married). Remember that time Brad sat George down and told him to settle down in Ocean's 13? Well, it turned out to be real-life advice the silver fox took seriously.
Leonardo Di Caprio & Tobey Maguire
Way before The Great Gatsby film adaptation saw the light of day, Leo and Tobey have been best of friends. After meeting Tobey in an audition, Leo felt that he wanted him to be his friend. The Wolf of Wall Street star recalls: "I remember driving back from school and he was doing Hot Rod Brown Class Clown with Whoopi Goldberg outside Hollywood High. It was a high school. And I jumped out of my car in the middle of the scene, as they were shooting, practically. I was like, 'Tobey! Tobey! Tobey! Give me your number.' He was like, 'Yeah, who are you again?'"
Ed Sheeran & Harry Styles

It only makes sense that the most famous lads of the music scene be best mates. Sure, Harry dated Taylor before and Ed is very good friends with her too but no woman will ever get in between these two pop giants. Their friendship blossomed from Twitter mentions to real-life hangouts. Do we smell a collab anytime soon?
Casey Affleck & Joaquin Phoenix
These two aren't just bros for life. They're brothers-in-law too. After meeting for the first time on the set of the 1995 thriller, To Die For, the two hit it off and became good friends. Casey even directed the mockumentary comedy film, I'm Still Here that starred Joaquin and followed his life from the announcement of his retirement down to his transition as a hip hop artist.
Channing Tatum & Jonah Hill
Their chemistry in 21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street was undeniable. Perhaps it's because the two's on-screen bromance blossomed into a real one. Their bond is reportedly unbreakable, with Channing summing up their friendship perfectly: "If I wasn't with my wife and Jonah had lady parts, I would probably ask him out." Sounds like a good plot for their next movie!
