Celebrities You Could Be Friends With?

Don't you just feel like there are some celebrities you could connect with if you knew them personally?  Feel like you could have them over for a backyard cookout and just chill?  Split a gut at their sheer brilliant hilarity?  Chat with about serious issues?  Get the kids together (not that I have any, but you know what I mean)?

First of all, who hasn't wanted to be friends with Sandra Bullock?  Her and I go way back to the While You Were Sleeping days (still my favorite movie by her).  And a huge congratulations for her adoption!  I'm sure great things are in store for this big-hearted and always classy lady.  

Jennifer Garner... how can you not watch an interview with her and think, Wow...  she's SUCH a real person!  She seems like so much fun.  She has spunk!  I want to be friends. Don't you?

Hubs and I have a guilty pleasure TV show: Tosh.0.  It's on Comedy Central.  It's often not stellar content, but Daniel Tosh... oh how funny you are.  His personality (and the fact that his face is IDENTICAL to one of our friends) makes us feel like we want to hang out with him.  I'm positive I'd pee my pants, but it would be worth it.

Bonnie Hunt!!  She is brilliantly funny, an incredible writer (Return to Me... HELLO!), great actress, and she's from Chicago, which basically means we have to be related.  I'm so sad that her talk show was canceled for next season, but hopefully this means she'll get back to movie making!

Ryan Seacrest... what a goofball.  Despite his many jobs in the spotlight, I'm pretty sure he'd be a lot of fun to hang out with.  His quick wit would certainly keep you on your toes!!

Ellen!!  What a talent.  So quick on her feet with the funny.  She just seems like a genuine person, with a big heart for helping people.  We could be friends.  For sure.

Amy Poehler... one of the best SNL cast members to date.  Her show Parks and Recreation is laugh out loud funny.  Hubs and I are definitely fans of this princess of comedy.

These are just a few of the celebs I could be friends with (there may be a future installment!).  What about you?  While watching TV, do you ever think, Hey... I could totally be friends with them! ?
Tell me who!


  1. John Krasinski!
    And I have to second Ellen and Tosh!

  2. ugh, of course as soon as you ask, i can't think of a single one.
    I think everyone is friends with Bonnie Hunt

  3. I love Sandra, Ellen and Amy. While you were sleeping is my favorite movie of hers too!

    But I think me and Pam from the Office would be great friends!

  4. I also love Sandra. When I read about her pain, I want to send her a letter of support. Now, I want to send her a letter of congrats on the baby! I also like Ellen and Bonnie. I'd love to have dinner with Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Tom Hanks, Kevin Spacey, and Robin Williams. Of course, with Robin there, we'd be laughing too hard to eat.

  5. I must admit I've never heard about half of these stars :)
    I could be the "bestest" of best friend :) with Wentworth Miller. And then with Cate Blanchett, Catherine Zeta Jones, Kate Winslet, Toni Collette, Karl Urban, Gerard Butler, Judi Dench, Celine Dion ....

  6. I totally agree about Ellen. She's hysterical and seems so real. I'd have to add Taylor Swift to the list because she also seems genuienly nice, no matter how bad her acting skills are. ;)

  7. You've already said my favorite!!! Sandra Bullock all the way!! Oh and I love Jen Garner and Ellen D.!!! They are awesome!!

    Go ahead and add Julia Roberts, Emily Blunt, Steve Carrell and John Krasinski! I could go one forever it seems, LOL

  8. Can I pick someone fictional and say Stefan or is that shallow? Haha. Ok, I'll be serious and say that if I had to pick a celebrity I would want to be friends with I would agree with you on Jennifer Gardner, she seems really nice.

  9. My list is way too long to list here. It seems I want to be friends with all celebrities. LOL. :)

  10. Me and Kelly Ripa could be total buds. :)

  11. is challenging to think about which celeb I might want to be friends with, Jennifer Garner is a good one, so personable, who couldn't be friends with her?

  12. I want to drink spiked sweet tea with Bonnie Hunt ;)
