Girl Crushing: 5 Celebrities I’d Love To Call My BFF

Tina and Amy High Five

I’m pretty lucky to have a bunch of amazing girlfriends in my life: you know, the kind of peeps I can laugh with until 3am, watch hours of Cougar Town with (with our own version of Big Karl of course) and that will always tell me if my butt really does look big in that dress.  BUT, just like being married doesn’t mean I can’t peek at a shirtless Ryan Gosling every once in a while, having amazing friends doesn’t stop me from occasionally fantasizing  about all the imaginary friendships I could have with famous people I don’t really know (and that definitely don’t know me).

So, just for fun, I thought I’d share my list of celebrity would-be best friends with you today. And then I thought you could help me feel a little less like a stalker and share YOUR list in the comments section as well. Deal?

♥ Tina Fey

What I love about Tina Fey is that she’s obviously super smart but she’s not afraid to make a complete fool of herself. I also think she’d be the kind of friend who could make any bad situation seem hilarious. She’d invite me over to her house for some take out, teach me how to be awesome and of course she’d invite her other BFF Amy Poehler over as well. Then they’d both laugh at my jokes hysterically.

♥ Jennifer Lawrence

I’m pretty sure every girl wants to be friends with Jennifer Lawrence. She doesn’t give a crap what people think of her (at least she does a brilliant job at pretending not to), she refuses to let Hollywood turn her into a stick insect and she‘s got mad bow skills. I imagine we’d have some pretty fun nights out together; photo bombing people, laughing at inappropriate times and starting up random conversations with strangers.

♥ Zooey Deschanel

I’m not sure if I’m just being fooled by the cute outfits and her innocent ways but Zooey Deschanel just seems like a really nice girl. I could imagine us baking cupcakes or scouring vintage shops together – making up our own mini dance routines as we go. Karaoke nights would also definitely be on the cards and I’d possibly stalk her when she visited Joseph Gordon Levitt.

♥ Sofia Coppola

Sofia would be my classy, worldly friend. She’d invite me over to her Paris apartment and we’d talk about movies for hours while sipping red wine from her father’s estate. We’d also discuss big issues such as this year’s NYC’s fashion week or the fact that you can’t find tootsie rolls in France. Then her husband would come home with his band mates and we’d have one of these chic Parisian parties where you party until the wee hours of the morning.

♥ Oprah

Everyone needs a sensible friend in their life and I think Oprah would fit the bill quite nicely. She’d be the one that keeps me on track in my life and reminds me to ‘go for my dreams’…and I’d be the one telling everyone I’m friends with Oprah. Win.

Other girls I’d love to hang out with: Beyonce, Katy Perry, Madonna, Emma Thompson, Emma Stone, Taylor Swift…

  • You are not alone in this Pearl. My fantasy BFF girl posse grows by the day.
    I definitely have Jennifer Lawrence as my number 1 BFFFFFFF.
    We’d probably hang out with our BFF posse of Emma Stone, Emma Watson, Scarlett Johansson, Kristen Bell and Emilia Clarke – pre drinks at JLaw’s house, Chinese restaurant in town and then to a cool dark club with couches for riotous laughter and dark rum.
    I defs need to get in on the Tina Fey action, and as well as Amy Pohler we NEED to invite Kristen Wiig. She’s wonderful.
    Then, I have a weird geeky fantasy BFF crew, which includes Grace Helbig, Hannah Hart and Mamrie Hart. They are like, MAJORLY YouTube famous, with shows like ‘You Deserve a Drink’ and ‘My Drunk Kitchen’ (plus many, many more) and everytime I watch their channels I feel like they’re missing out on having me in their life and they don’t even know it.
    Love this post!

    • Haha I love your list Sarah! And we totally should invite Kristen Wiig to our imaginary party – you’re right, she is awesome! I feel like I’m missing out on all those awesome youtubers though, I need to check their channels out!

  • Love tis list. Would have to add a french girl of course, that would be Vanessa Paradis for her cool boho fashion style and her ex-husband!!! ;-)

    • Of course, how could I forget Vanessa Paradis?!!! I’m obviously losing touch with my French roots lol. And she can sing too so her and Zooey Deschanel could serenade us together :)

    • lol fair enough Terri – although I do feel we need someone to control this crazy bunch xx

  • Kristen Wiig is my favourite I would love to hang with her so we could act like total dorks together! Jennifer Lawrence & Katy Perry are on my lists too x
