Celebrities That Were Friends Before They Were Famous

Celebrities tend to socialise in the same circles as they all often attend similar events and functions. Some times a friendship can be formed through filming a movie together or being introduced by a mutual friend. Take Taylor Swift’s Girl Squad – a perfect example of friendships formed within the entertainment industry.
