Surprisingly, the pair weren’t set up to live together by the Coen Brothers. In fact, they were assigned to live together while studying at Yale. Later, the two rented an apartment together in the Bronx.

Wes Anderson

The pairing that launched dozens of careers and even dozens more Halloween costume ideas for those who stray from the traditional or tacky! Wilson and Anderson lived together while studying at the University of Texas. During that period, they wrote Bottle Rocket, which also starred Owen’s brother Luke.

Lots of dog-care grooming products, if you are a fan of Best in Show. Ha, no, it was actually...

Sherry Stringfield

Be still my late '90s heart! The Christopher Guest/ indie film goddess and ER star were roommates at SUNY Purchase. Though Stringfield was the only one to graduate, both have enjoyed successful acting careers.

Tommy Lee Jones

Never before this fact have I considered, “Al Gore was definitely the life of that party.” But, there you have it! Former VP-turned-environmental-spokesperson Al Gore and actor Tommy Lee Jones roomed together during their Freshman year at Harvard University and later as upperclassmen. The two remain good friends — Jones (sans grumpy face), spoke at the Democratic National Convention in support of Gore when he ran for President.

Because there is never enough Connie.

Prior to playing some of TV’s most powerful and memorable mothers, they shared a house before they made it big. I like to imagine it was during this period that they both realized that wearing cowboy boots as often as possible on screen was a really strong career move.

They were both rising young stars when they met on a fashion shoot. Neither went to college, but they wanted the roommate experience, so they decided to move in together.

Meryl Streep!

Hah! I wish. Though similar to Meryl, Tucci’s actual former roommate was powerhouse actor Ving Rhames. They lived together while studying at SUNY Purchase.

Ever wondered what the dreamiest flat in all of the British Isles would be? There you have it. While living together, the young actors founded the production company Natural Nylon. Do you have a map, gentlemen? I just got lost in those eyes!

All of our dreams, of course.

Justin Timberlake

Hey girl, I really like it when you wear a suit and tie, it shows you’re not scared of the gender binary in fashion. These two dreamboats lived together when they were both stars on the Mickey Mouse Club. Timberlake’s mother was Gosling’s legal guardian during filming since Gosling’s mom had to return to Canada. Adorable, eh?

Conan O’Brien and...

It's not Andy!

Jeff Garlin

These funny fellas lived together in Chicago, sharing deep dish and cheering for the Cubs. They started a pet-care service together, where I’m assuming they walked and cleaned animals while testing out their newest material.

Jon Stewart and...

Thankfully never Chris Matthews.

Anthony Weiner

Yep! This political mash-up was brought to you by Dewey Beach, Delaware. The two shared a shore house in the summer of 1987 and met when Weiner was an exchange student at The College of William and Mary. If Weiner only knew then just how many puns Stewart would serve him in the future...
