Some of the media has a bad habit of trying to pin one celebrity against another... especially female celebrities. It is fun for them to make it appear as if women are in competition with one another, even if they're not.

Sometimes, these feuds are real. Think Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall, Gwenyth Paltrow and Martha Stewart, or Lisa Vanderpump and the rest of the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Occasionally, these relationships are irreparable.

Other times, friends argue, or even fight, but are able to make up and repair their relationships. This has happened with Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry, and Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera.

But, more often than not, women tend to form close bonds with each other. They have friendships that last years, sometimes even lifetimes. This is true of "regular people" as well as celebrities. Friendship at all ages, is always nice to see.

Drew Barrymore And Cameron Diaz's Friendship Began When They Were Teens

Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz are lifetime besties. They met when they were teens, over 30 years ago.

"We met when I was 14 and she was 16. I was working at a coffee house and she was a junior model," Barrymore told People. "She's still my bestie and sistie — sistie?"

They starred in the mega-hit, Charlie's Angels, but that was their only movie together. You can feel the love between them and see the fun they have together.

Drew said, "The thing that I love about our friendship is that we have been there in all the big and important moments, we've also been there in the small moments and the casual moments and the reason we are such good friends is because it's real and we go through real stuff with each other. It's not a Hollywood fairytale."

Selena Gomez And Taylor Swift Have Been Friends Since Dating The Jonas Brothers

The Jonas Brothers brought Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift together. "We actually dated the Jonas Brothers together! It was hysterical," said Gomez in a 2017 interview with KIIS FM UK. She was dating Nick and Swift was dating Joe. She went on to say that her friendship with Swift was "the best thing we got out of those relationships."

Since then, they have performed on stage together multiple times, and have supported each other through personal struggles, as well as in their careers.

Taylor said about Selena in an interview with ELLE Magazine, “There has always been this quality of sisterhood, and I don’t say that in a basic way,” she said. “I knew from when I met her, I would always have her back. In my life, I have the ability to forgive people who have hurt me. But I don’t know if I can forgive someone who hurts her.”

Emma Stone And Jennifer Lawrence Met Through Woody Harrelson

Interesting enough, Woody Harrelson introduced Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone after working with both of the two stars.

Their friendship began as just texting each other every day for a year. Lawrence told Vanity Fair, "I feel like it was our version of The Notebook — 365 texts."

When they finally met in real life, they hit it off instantly, and they created a beautiful friendship.

Stone said she thinks of Lawrence as family, "You realize that your friendships, the people who go with you into these next phases of your life— you're choosing your family." She also told her bestie, "You've been one of my most loyal friends for years. And I think knowing that you can laugh together and that not everything has to be such a big deal."

Jennifer Aniston And Courtney Cox Are The Best Of Friends

Monica and Rachel have nothing on Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox. The two stars of Friends may be even closer than their fictional counterparts. The two met when they starred on the hit series, but their friendship continues long after Friends ended.

The two have vacationed together, even sometimes with other bestie, Lisa Kudrow. Courtney served as maid of honor at Jennifer's wedding to Justin Theroux, and they have each supported the other during their divorces. Aniston even has the honor of being Godmother to Cox's daughter, Coco.

This friendship is going strong.
