Justin Timberlake, Aaron Paul & More of Hollywood's Best Bromances

'Tis the season for summer love, and not just in the Nicholas Sparks film adaptation kind of way. Bromance is blooming, and brand-new celebrity bro-couples are springing up all over the place. The celebrity bromance isn't a new phenomenon: timeless tales of mythical celebrity bro-love have been around since the dawn of power-bro-couple Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. But with the arrival of warm weather comes the sprouting up of new conscious bro-couplings and the formation of new celebrity bromances, like the quickly-blossoming friendship of Aaron Paul and Justin Timberlake, that are making us really, really happy right now. If gushing over the Twitter exchange between these two is wrong, I don't want to be right.

Summer isn't just the season for pool parties and pit stains, it's the time to celebrate bromances and celebrity bros. Celebs probably aren't "just like us," but they do a lot of stuff that we normal people like to do, like cultivating a possibly unhealthy admiration of Aaron Paul from afar, tweeting about our overwhelming desire for pizza, and just generally bro-ing out, like bros do.

Fresh new bromances are popping up like little bro-daisies. Here are some of our favorites:
