Is there anything more entertaining in Hollywood than the bromance?  Seriously, I think a good bromance is healthy and sweet and fun…and hysterical.  In fact, I love them so much that I’ve posted on them before (see The Best BROMANCE on TV)

Here are a few of the best bromances in Hollywood.

THE FRAT PACK

Back in the 90’s Hollywood opened its doors to a slew of new young up-and-comers including Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, my boyfriend Cole Hauser, Rory Cochrane, Vince Vaughn, and Chris O’Donnell, to name a few.  This group of guys rotated in the same circles, same movies, and even same homes, often sleeping on each other’s couches off and on for several years.  Most of these guys are still good friends and still pop up in each other’s films.

Check out this episode of Dinner for Five with Jon Favreau, Vince Vaughn, Cole Hauser, Rory Cochrane, and Brian Cox (a bit of an oddball choice here) and make sure you watch “The Phone Booth” at 19:15 for some laughs.

 

SIR IAN MCKELLAN and SIR PATRICK STEWART

Bros hold hands

These two are acting royalty and they have had an ongoing love affair, bromantically, for years.  They have appeared on screen together numerous times (obviously including all the X-Men movies), as well as on stage.  Their friendship is one of longevity, laughter, and love.  We can all strive for this kind of affection.

Watch the Sirs play the Newlywed Game.  Too funny!

It’s like everything they do is perfection.

MICHAEL FASSBENDER AND JAMES MCAVOY (and HUGH JACKMAN)

Speaking of the X-Men movies, let us not forget the most recent bromance from that franchise.  That being Michael Fassbender (playing young Ian McKellan) and James McAvoy (playing young Patrick Stewart).

(Fun fact:  Patrick Stewart has two roles in common with James McAvoy: McAvoy played Macbeth in ShakespeaRe-Told: Macbeth while Stewart played him in Great Performances: Macbeth and Stewart played Professor Charles Xavier in X-Men, X-Men 2, X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The Wolverine, and X-Men: Days of Future Past, while McAvoy played him in X-Men: First Class, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and X-Men: Apocalypse.  They also each share the role of Macbeth with their respective Magnetos, Ian McKellan and Michael Fassbender (IMDB).

The most epic of bromances!

Apparently, James and Michael have a huge fan-base for their bromance.  People have dedicated fan-art and fan-fiction to the friendship between these two.  It’s not hard to see why, they do seem to have that..spark.

So sweet…so touching

19 Times McAvoy And Fassbender Were The Definition Of Friendship Goals

Hugh Jackman (newest future husband!) sometimes seems like a third wheel but, watch the threesome’s appearance on the Graham Norton show and you can see why he is included in this as a trio.  Like Dinner for Five, I have watched this interview over and over.  It is hilarious!  It actually makes me want to be part of a bromance.

*sigh* Again, #goals.

HUGH JACKMAN and ANY Co-Star!

It is no secret that Hugh Jackman is one of the nicest, most charming men in Hollywood. And it seems all of his co-stars fall madly in love with him too.  Aside from the trio above, Hugh is loved by many:

HUGH JACKMAN and Patrick Stewart

Here’s that X-Men connection again.  These two have appeared onscreen together a bazillion times and it seems like their friendship just.might.last.

Hugh and Ryan

Although they totally troll each other on social media and in interviews, these two seem to have a fun bromantic chemistry.  The two have been friends for years (having worked together on X-Men: Origins – Wolverine) and like to pop up in each other’s lives here and there.  Ryan even hijacked Hugh’s interview while he was doing press for Eddie the Eagle (a great movie, btw).

It seems that these two good ol’ boys do have a sweet affection for each other.  One that almost borderlines…Single White Female.

This isn’t creepy.  Not.At.All!!

Wouldn’t the world be such a better place if we could all love our co-workers as much as all of these mates seem to.

#friendshipgoals

It’s My Boyfriend’s Birthday!

Okay, not my real boyfriend. It’s my Blair-gives-me-permission-just-like-Rachel-gave-Ross-permission-in-that-episode-of-Friends-with-Isabella-Rossellini-pretend-boyfriend.

Today is Cole Hauser’s 40th Birthday.

This guy who I’ve fantasized over since I was 15.

via my dreams

And I haven’t been 15 in a very, very long time (*ahem* although I am still claiming I’m 23 so, y’know, just for shits and giggles let’s all keep that between us, shall we?).

And the first thing I saw him in (when I was 15) was School Ties when he looked like this:

It's that red hair.....

It’s that red hair…..

I’ve supported his career since day 1 – which included (Tanya R., I’m soooo sorry to admit this/disappoint you) boycotting FRIENDS (oh, the horror!) because it was up against Cole’s show High Incident and I really wanted the ratings to pull through.  I did my best, Cole. I.Did.My.Best.

Look at that adorable little face in the center.

I’ve even blogged about him in the past: for instance, here and here.

I’ve watched his “Dinner for Five” appearance a dozen times (which, frankly, was a great little show and you should YouTube the episodes)….the Rory Cochrane story at the end of the episode is hilarious! – check it out: .

And I was super elated to find out he was in Halifax – a mere hour away from me – this past fall filming The Lizzie Borden Chronicles.  How I did not know this information BEFOREHAND pissed me off….Blair and Stephanie (who has been by my side since School Ties) did their best to console me.  Clearly, I was devastated but here’s hoping he comes back to Nova Scotia to make it up to me film again.

Now that I’ve professed my undying and long-lasting love for this guy (one of the longest relationships I’ve ever had), here’s to wishing him a happy birthday.

40Cheers
