Hollywood is a fascinating mystical place. Though it may seem vast and mysterious, it’s obvious that everyone is somehow connected to everyone else. Though some celebrities are often seen together — i.e., Taylor Swift and her entire crew of ladies — we would have never guessed that some of our favorite stars know one another, let alone that they have a tight bond.
From unexpected pairings like Martha Stewart and Brendan Fraser, who enjoy luxurious horseback rides, to Blake Lively and Beyoncé ,who send each other the sweetest birthday messages, here are the most surprising and unexpected friendships in Hollywood.

Lady Gaga and Barbra Streisand
Both Lady Gaga and Barbra Streisand are icons, so it makes sense that they would mesh well as friends. Gaga posted a stunning photo fo the pair with the caption, “Barbra and me. What a completely amazing woman. #Funnygirls.” How legendary.
