The only thing more intense than a Hollywood divorce is a bestie breakup. Maybe it’s the lack of money, kids, and property involved. They don’t hold back when they’ve got nothing lose. Whatever the reason, many stars aren’t afraid to burn a friendship bridge.

Losing friends is an unfortunate part of life for everyone. But for celebrity friendships, the feuding parties are losing some of the few people in their lives who genuinely understand the extremely strange and surreal experience that they share: being admired and judged worldwide by people who don’t even know them.

These days, it seems apropos that BFF is so close to “beef”. For some of the former celebrity BFFs on this list, their issues have been marinating for years. Sometimes they stew in silence until something triggers them to boil over. Other famous friends like to keep the drama fresh and public.

With the advent of social media, a great many of these bestie breakups played out on Twitter or Instagram, giving fans front row seats to every sling of mud or toss of shade.

Here are 20 Celeb Enemies Who Used To Be Best Friends.

20 Things You Didn’t Know About Leonardo DiCaprio’s ’90s Boy Gang

Once upon a time, Leonardo DiCaprio was a fringe child actor known for his precocious performances in indies like This Boy’s Life, The Basketball Diaries, and What’s Eating Gilbert Grape. Then that little scamp boarded the Titanic and became the King of the World.

When DiCaprio became a bona fide heartthrob for drawing Kate Winslet like one of his French girls, he was officially a grown man of 23. But something happens to a person who has had a job since the age of 5. Their transition into adulthood is corrupted. Leo was suddenly the most desired young actor in Hollywood, with piles of disposable income. He surrounded himself with a posse of other young male actors. Though they were at various stages of success, they shared their fierce loyalty to Leo and a penchant for going buck wild.

Nancy Jo Sales introduced Leo’s boy gang to the world via 1998’s “Leo, Prince of the City”. The now legendary NY Mag piece details some of their more infamous antics. The internet is rife with the finer points of their often-horrifying shenanigans. This list covers the most egregious moments of their privileged antics.

24 Stars You Had No Idea Were Roommates

Whether we had the time of our lives or the experience was the stuff of nightmares, we never forget the people we’ve called our roommates. The same is true for celebrities, who, believe it or not, were once regular people with a financial need to share living expenses.

Most of the pairings or trios on this list were living together when they were just starting out in showbiz. A few of them were already famous but there were special circumstances that led to them sharing a residence. In some cases, living together allowed them to support each other in their fledgling career, and cemented a lifelong bond between them. In other cases, it ended their friendships and marked the start of a bitter rivalry.

Which famous actors always left dirty dishes in the sink? Which star stole a script and subsequently an Oscar-winning job from their so-called best friend? What celebrity paid rent but almost never slept in the apartment? Who was the famous avant-garde director who kicked out his roommate for being too weird? Which teen heartthrobs would compete to see who could go the longest without showering?

Find out all this and more on our list of 24 celebrities you had no idea were roommates!

15 Stars Who Had To Work For A-Listers Before They Made It Big

We’ve all had that fantasy about telling our bosses to stuff it and quitting our day jobs to follow our dreams. But in Hollywood, sometimes your boss just happens to be a big star and working for them is an important step on the road to success. Maybe one day, you can cash in on the fact that you babysat one of the Jolie-Pitts or picked up Bradley Cooper’s dry cleaning.

Before they hit it big the stars on this list were workaday stiffs just like the rest of us. Okay, so some of these stars had connections and opportunities that weren’t open to the average Joe or Josephine. Maybe some of them didn’t even really need the work for, say, monetary purposes. The important thing is that these celebrities spent time working under someone else before they found success and became their own bosses.

Plus, the struggle is relative. Kim Kardashian’s early employment probably seemed really hard to her. Maybe Allison Williams is extra nice to her personal assistant because she’s been on the other side of things. Aspiring young actors take note: babysitting child stars and famous offspring is a perfectly legitimate jumping off point for a career in the entertainment industry.

Here are 15 Stars Who Had To Work For Other Stars Before They Made It.
