Between Best Actress nominee Michelle Williams bringing BFF Busy Phillips and the buzzworthy bromance between The King’s Speech trio Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Tom Hooper (a triangle of man-love, as a friend of mine called it), BFFs might have been the biggest winner of all on Sunday evening.
I love that Michelle took Busy as her date throughout this awards season (they went together to the Golden Globes as well). It makes their friendship seem so genuine in a town when so many relationships might be for the cameras.
The whole thing just makes me want to be in on their BFFdom.
And the fact that this grown-man bromance is one of the great news items to come out of The King’s Speech? Adorable. Oh, to be a fly on the wall of their cute accent-laden dinner dates. Sometimes I wonder if Helena Bonham Carter was sad to be left out of the boy’s club, but mostly I am too busy swooning over Mr. Darcy. The fact that he is a sweetheart who loves to bragging about his bromance? Icing
Says my Colin, about Geoffrey: “I would describe his as my geisha girl.”
And Geoffrey about Colin? “We do tend to refer to each other as Abelard and Eloise or Thelma and Louise.”
Like I said. Swoon.
Who are your favorite celebrity BFFs?

Don’t forget the most famous movie friendship of all time – Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. The bromance that started it all. Not bad eye candy, either 😉
Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox. Now, I know that my ultimate FRIENDS fan-dom does make me partial to those too, but I love how a show about best friends brought together best friends.
I was reading a womens’ magazine a few years ago interviewing Aniston where she said her BFF is someone else (I forgot the woman’s name, but she is not famous .)
When it comes to famous people, we don’t always know who their BFF truly is.
