Celebrity BFFs Revealed
June 13, 2006

Okay ladies, we all know men come and go, but girlfriends are forever. And in Hollywood, there are some best friends that truly stand out. Only "Extra" has your BFF guide.

First off, there's Oprah and Gayle King. The dynamic duo's secret? "She wants the best for me, and I want the best for her," Oprah said.

"We've been friends since we were 21 and 22," Gayle revealed. "Now we're 51 and 52."

But with Gayle and Oprah's friendship comes some misconceptions. "Most people don't understand it," King said. "They think there must be something more to it; there's really not."

"There's never been a moment of jealousy, except one time," Oprah revealed. "When I got to sing onstage with Tina Turner."

Another pair of true BFFs is Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox Arquette, who bonded from day one on the set of "Friends."

The duo has stuck together through breakups and new loves, even going arm in arm to lavish Hollywood events to support one another: "Look at my date, is she a hottie?" Jen joked of Courteney at one of their girl's nights out.

The newest pair of best friends to hit the town -- Paris and Kim.

When Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie's friendship became complicated, the "Simple Life" star was linked immediately with a new best friend, beauty Kim Kardashian.

And like true BFFs, they share more than friendship -- they share their precious designer duds. "It's actually my girlfriend's dress," Paris replied when someone asked her the designer of her dress. "I don't know."

Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts have been best friends since starting out as young actors in Australia. "People tend to see our friendship because of the work element," Naomi revealed. "And we were friends way before Hollywood came into the picture."

Meanwhile, for PenÚlope Cruz and Salma Hayek, sometimes best friends off-screen try their hand at working on-screen.

The sassy Latin beauties spent four months in Mexico together making the movie "Banditas," which they told "Extra" made their 8-year friendship even stronger. "We have had something together since the day we met," Cruz revealed. "We have total trust in each other, and we love each other."
