There’s nothing like sharing a pint of beer with your buddy or bonding for hours playing the latest game of World of War Craft together. In the spirit of the brotherly love, here are 10 top celebrity bromances that will make you want to pick up the next tab at the bar.

Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen

They may be arch nemeses on the movie screen but they’re BFFs when not playing the characters of Professor Xavier and Magneto in X-Men; we’re talking about the fun loving bromance shared between Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen. This British duo’s love of Shakespeare, bowler hats and frolicking on the streets of New York City has been well documented via selfies on Instagram. Any sci-fi fan would want be the third wheel on their man dates.

Arsenio Hall and Earvin “Magic” Johnson

Bromance can be akin to a marriage it’s for rich or for poor, in sickness and in health and ‘til death do you part. The friendship between Arsenio Hall and Earvin “Magic” Johnson has spanned decades and survived the darkest moments when the basketball superstar announced that he contracted HIV in 1991. When many of Johnson’s friends turned their backs on him in the 90s Hall stayed true and firm. Today, they’re friendship still going strong; Hall recently made a comeback to late night TV and had his BFF appeared on the show as a guest.

Adam Levine and Blake Sheldon

Adam Levine and Blake Sheldon first got together on the TV series The Voice in 2011 and a bromance of epic proportions soon developed. Levine and Sheldon banter like an old married couple and are not shy of showing their mutual affection for each other. We’ve witnessed endless hugs, duets and pecks on the cheek which spawned the celebrity couple name Shevine. Kimye better look out!

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck

The world was first introduced to Matt Damon and Ben Affleck in 1997 when they wrote and starred in the Oscar award-winning movie Good Will Hunting. Many blockbuster movies, stints in rehab and girlfriends later the friendship between these two is still going strong; both are now married with kids, but still know how to have fun together.

Jay-Z and Kanye West

Jay-Z and Kanye West first hooked up in the recording studio in 2000, when West was producing beats for artists on Roc-A-Fella Records. Many albums and millions of dollars later, the rappers joined forces to record and release the highly regarded Watch the Throne (2011), considered one the best hip-hop albums of all time. Both are now hooked to super star wives and have been seen going on many double dates together.

George Clooney and Brad Pitt

Friends who ride motorcycles together stay together. Brad Pitt and George Clooney go way back; appearing alongside each other in three Oceans movies and gushing about the other’s accomplishments. Clooney has given numerous interviews unabashedly sharing about his love for Pitt saying to The Advocate in 2012 “Not only do I enjoy him as a person and respect his talent, but I also love what he does in the world. I can’t speak highly enough about how hard he works… I’m very proud to call him my friend.” Can we get a fist bump for their brotherly love?

Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon

He’s late night talk show host and the other is a pop singer but Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake share a mutual love of music, so much so that they’ve recorded numerous late night medleys together. Cue their viral hits “Sexy Back” (the barber shop version) and “The History of Rap” parts one, two, three and four – these white boys know how to throw down a rhyme!

Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel

Matt Damon is a popular guy appearing twice on our top 10 list of Hollywood Bromances. However, unlike his friendship with Ben Affleck Damon has a raucous bond with late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel; both relentlessly poke fun at each other like it’s an Olympic sport. Since Kimmel started his show he has closed nearly every episode with the phrase, “Apologies to Matt Damon, we ran out of time.” This culminated in Damon tag teaming with Kimmel’s then girlfriend Sarah Silverman in 2008 to produce and perform the hit song “I’m F*cking Matt Damon.” A year later, Jimmy penned his response in song titled “I’m F*cking Ben Affleck.”

Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson

Mullet hair, heavy eye makeup and even a three-piece, snake skin suit have helped to forge the friendship of comedians Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson. They first joined forces in for the movie Meet the Parents (2000) and their on screen chemistry proved so potent that they reunited for Zoolander (2001), The Royal Tenenbaums (2001), Starsky & Hutch and Meet the Fockers (2004), and both Night at the Museum movies (2006 and 2009).

Seth Rogen and James Franco

You know Seth Rogen and James Franco are home boys when they look totally comfortable sitting on top of each other spoofing Kanye West’s music video “Bound.” In the hilarious stunt, Rogen played Kim Kardashian and sat topless on Franco who mimicked the bike riding rapper. Watching the two of them stare deeply into each other eyes affectionately while riding through CGI mountains gave everyone a good laugh for months.
