Friends come in all shapes and sizes! Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg are among two of the many celebrities who have proven that stars don’t have to be alike to become close friends.
The lifestyle guru and lead singer of “Drop It Like It’s Hot” began a lifelong friendship in 2008 after Snoop appeared on Stewart Martha’s show. Their chemistry was easy to see and later gave birth to their cooking show, Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party.
“This is magic right here,” the rapper told Us Weekly exclusively in April 2019 of his dynamic with Stewart. “It’s a complex world we live in, but at the same time we love being able to do what we do, like being able to get out of my mind, join Martha’s hands and bring people together.”
Other unlikely duets began in childhood, such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Maya Rudolph. After their fathers became friends in college and the actresses attended the same elementary school in California, their bond was cemented forever.
“This week has been really special to me because one of my best friends is on the show now and I’m so proud of her,” Paltrow said of Rudolph while presenting Saturday Night Live in 2001. “It’s super fun and talented, and I’m so happy he’s in the cast.
The friendship between seven-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams and actor Colton Haynes has been well documented on social media. The two dressed up together for fun parties and supported each other during the big moments in life.
“My favorite songbird welcomed her first baby in the world today,” Haynes wrote via Instagram in September 2017, after Williams became a mom. “I am so proud of you my love @serenawilliams. Uncle Coco shows up for duty 😍😍😍 You always continue to amaze me. I love you.”
As of 2012, the relationship between John Mayer and Andy Cohen has caused many to wonder if they were more than just friends.
“I think I’m not surprised because we also have great love for each other,” the host of Watch What Happens Live in 2018 told CNN. “So, it just seems like an obvious hypothesis.”
Friends, who have vacationed together in Montana and celebrated their birthdays over the years, agree that their relationship is special… but it’s platonic.
“In conclusion, I love you and you are such a special person that I am sure you are known throughout the universe,” Mayer wrote in June 2018 in honor of Cohen’s 50th birthday.
