As a dude, it’s definitely not uncommon to have a man crush. We all know what one is, so there’s no reason to deny you’ve got one. There’s always a bro out there that you hope to emulate just a little bit, steal some fashion tips from, or just wish you were nearly as hip as.
While it’s totally cool to have one as an Average Joe, we find it a little weird when it’s two big-time celebs that happen to focus a bit too much on each other. It’s one thing to have a friend or colleague in showbiz, but to be associated with a dude over a mega-hot chick is a mistake some of these guys seem to have made. Luckily for them, it hasn’t bruised their egos too much.
Kanye and Jay-Z
For as long as he’s been around Ye’s always wanted to be HOVA, and thanks to his pretty much owning the rap scene for the past decade or so, Jay finally took him under his wing and recorded a full album with him last year (Watch the Throne), which is still getting played out by college kids and radio stations alike. Their newest single “Clique,” is an absolute hit, meaning this crush isn’t going away anytime soon.
Clooney and Pitt
It’s not shocking that two of the biggest (and most successful) actors in the past 20 years would develop some sort of relationship, but these guys are a little insane. We’ve seen friends do some big things in Hollywood, but when you seemingly only work with the same director and cast in every movie, it’s pretty weird. We mean, did they really have to make all three Ocean’s movies, or did they just want an excuse to hang out?
LeBron and D-Wade
Much like the Kanye/Jay-Z friendship, this one was like pupil wanting to team-up with teacher – which all Cleveland fans are well aware Bron did a couple years ago. And though they came into the league in the same draft class (2003), LeBron never seemed comfortable being “the man.” The two got a title this past summer, so whoppity do, y’all are champs now, congrats.
John C. Reilly and Will Ferrell
They love each other so much, they even played step brothers in a damn movie before. When you add in being paired-up in movies like Ricky Bobby and done numerous skits for Funny or Die, and you can tell these guys like to do more than just see whose jokes are funnier in an email chain like your friends and you do.
Paul Rudd and Judd Apatow
After starring in a number of Apatow flicks already, Rudd and Judd are teaming up again in this year’s “This is 40,” which is a spinoff from another Apatow flick, “Knocked Up.” It’s safe to say if Apatow wants someone to be married to his real-life wife Leslie Mann in a movie, you can bet your ass he’s dialing Rudd’s number. Makes you wonder if they share her in the bedroom off-screen too?
