They point out fashion blunders, and won’t nick your shoes. Ahlan!’s loving the ‘boy bestie’ trend

The Ex

Liz Hurley and Hugh Grant
“I love HUGH. I absolutely adore him. We speak every single day. He’s my best friend; he’s like family. We’re absolutely aware that we both have other people in our lives. We’re respectful and sensitive to that. But it would be absurd not to talk to him.” Hope hubby Arun Nayar doesn’t mind your ex hanging around, ElLIZABETH?

The surrogate brother

Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliff
“You can’t explain to someone what this experience (Harry Potter) is like. I would have been so lonely [without Daniel]. When I was younger, he used to tease me. Now he’s quite protective.” We love Harry Potter, Ems, but we’re not sure Dan’s protective bro act would scare anybody!

The mane man

Jessica Simpson and Ken Paves
“I first met Ken in 1998 on the set of one of my first music videos. I knew right away that Ken had an amazing talent and an amazing heart.” Plus, discount haircuts never hurt, right Jess?

The mentor

Renee Zellweger and George Clooney
“He doesn’t even know how important his opinion has been. George is such a confident director, he has no idea. And he’s a nice person.” Renee’s got a bad case of hero-worship for her bestie George.

The designer

Victoria Beckham and Marc Jacobs

“Marc is a genius. I completely trusted his vision. You can’t be afraid to experiment with fashion.” There’s not many men we would trust to dress us, so Posh should hang on to boy pal Marc.

The co-star

Katherine Heigl and T.R Knight

“T.R is my best friend. I will throw down for that kid. I will beat you up. I will use every ounce of energy I have to take you down if you hurt his feelings.” Okaaay Kath, we won’t mess with your ‘bridesman’ T.R!
