The showbiz industry may seem pretty cutthroat and competitive, but it's not impossible to forge genuine bonds with fellow artistas, especially because they're the ones who can understand each other's struggles the most. Below, we list down a few celebrity friendships we've adored over the years.
1. Sue Ramirez and Kristel Fulgar
From celebrating each other's birthdays to attending their favorite K-pop group's concerts together, Sue Ramirez and Kristel Fulgar are your typical BFF duo. Having worked for the same network over the years, the two have often crossed paths during guest appearances and acting projects, but their friendship initially began because of their common love for singing.
2. Kathryn Bernardo and Gabbi Garcia
Kapuso star Gabbi Garcia and Kapamilya star Kathryn Bernardo are actually childhood friends! In an interview, Gabbi explains that she and Kathryn have been friends ever since they modeled for a clothing line together when she was just four years old.
3. Gabbi Garcia and Julia Barretto
Despite being under different networks, Gabbi Garcia and Julia Barretto have remained good industry friends. They've also known each other since their teens because they attended the same high school.
4. Cruz sisters and Bektas sisters
Sunshine Cruz's three daughters—Angelina, Sam, and Chesca—are good friends with the daughters of Ruffa Gutierrez—Lorin and Venice. The two sets of sisters often post photos of each other on social media. Their moms, Sunshine and Ruffa, are also good friends and go way back. They both appeared on the variety show That's Entertainment.
5. Andrea Brillantes, Seth Fedelin, Francine Diaz, and Kyle Echarri
These four go by their squad name The Gold Squad, inspired by the teleserye they all acted in, Kadenang Ginto. While their characters are sworn enemies on the show, the teen stars actually get along pretty well IRL. They even have a YouTube channel dedicated to their squad where they vlogged together while filming for the show.
6. Loisa Andalio, Maris Racal, and Sue Ramirez
This trio is known for their viral-worthy shenanigans (like this rampa tweet that garnered 13 million views as of writing), but their friendship is no joke. Their first project together was the Double Hearts online concert in 2016 where they appeared with Kristel Fulgar. In 2017, the four had their first major concert together called 4 of A Kind. While they may have had personal issues in the past, the three stars prove that real friendships can get past any obstacle.
7. AC Bonifacio and Darren Espanto
Aside from their usually LOL-worthy comments on each other's Instagram posts, AC Bonifacio and Darren Espanto's friendship is note-worthy and precious. The two first met on a reality dance show called Dance Kids where AC won as part of the duo Lucky Aces. They also share a common connection: Both are from Canada, which makes their bond extra special.
