Oh, celebrity friendships, you never fail to thrill me. Especially when two like-minded stars bond together and elevate each other’s awesomeness. Case in point: As Us Weekly reports, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Garner hung out, posing for photos together at a charity telethon event on September 11. Honestly, though, the fact that they might be friends is not surprising at all. Actually, it makes a ton of sense. And, no, not just because, as Us Weekly points out, that they were both involved with Ben Affleck. (Though I am sure it’s a topic of conversation between them that was sort of unavoidable. Such is life.)
But the whole reason that this potential friendship is oh so perfect is because the two women have so much in common. One of those reasons being that both make an effort to make a difference in a big way by attending the telethon. The charity they were supporting, Think It Up, works on education reform and inspiring young students.
So, yeah, these two are definite #BFF goals in more ways than one. Here are seven reasons why the Jennifer Garner and Gwyneth Paltrow friendship makes so much sense:
1. They're Both Awesome Moms
With five young kids between them, I'm sure they have lots to talk about.
2. They're Both Charitable
3. They're Both Ambitious And Successful
Who run the world?
4. They've Gone Through Similar Hardships
Both women went through very public breakups from fellow celebrities. That will certainly bond two people.
5. They're Both Golden Globe Winners
Talent seeks out talent.
6. They're Both #Flawless
7. They're The Same Age
Well, Paltrow is about to be on September 27th, anyway. Both ladies were born in 1972 and there's nothing like having a same-aged peer to navigate life with.
Hopefully, this is just the beginning of the documentation of these kindred spirits forming a real friendship.
