Despite the presumption that it’s truly impossible to find genuine and lasting friendships in the exciting yet complicated world of showbiz, not to mention that it’s easy for some people to just come and go in every relationship, these celebrities prove that their friendships are indeed forever!
And in this Kapamilya gallery, let’s meet the celebrities who are actually ultimate best friends off camera!
Liza Soberano and Michelle Vito
Low-maintenance friendships are just really one of the best – even though you don’t get to spend much time together, the friendship remains strong – and Liza Soberano and Michelle Vito prove just that. They are actually both part of Star Magic Batch 2013 and over the years, they have become family and witnessed each other’s ups and downs and even romantic lives!

In their interview in Magandang Buhay last year, Liza imparted how grateful she is to the unconditional friendship she has with the Bagong Umaga star as Michelle still sticks by her despite not seeing one another often. She also imparted how they enjoy attending concerts and watching movies together, especially in times of sadness. And who could ever forget that the two were roommates five years straight for the Star Magic Ball?
Angel Locsin and Dimples Romana
Dimples considers Angel as her real-life superheroine. It’s because she was the one who advised her to wisely invest her money and there are also times when Angel would babysit Dimples’ kids every time she’s busy with her commitments or having date nights with her husband. But what the Viral Scandal lead actress appreciates more is the fact that the Iba ‘Yan host was there also during the difficult times of her life, such as when Dimple’s husband got hospitalized for a throat operation.
The two actresses met on the set of Lobo back in 2008. Since then, they have celebrated many milestones together. When Angel finally tied the knot to Neil Arce, Dimple was one of the few guests present. On the other hand, before Dimples announced her third pregnancy to fans, Angel was one of the first people to find out the big news.

In a birthday message for Dimples in 2019, Angel said, “Ito ako, kaibigan mo. Forever number one fan, number one basher. Lagi kitang ipagtatanggol, lagi akong magho-honest sa’yo, nasa likod mo lang ako kahit na anong mangyari. Pasensya na, andito ako sa buhay mo, wala ka nang magagawa. Dito lang ako, ‘di mo ako mapapaalis”.
Kathryn Bernardo and Ria Atayde
Staying true to their roles, Kathryn Bernardo and Ria Atayde kept in touch and would hang out whenever their schedule was free after working together in the 2019 top-grossing film “The Hows of Us.” They go on trips together and have heart to heart talks about life, such as when they went to Siargao along with a few of their close friends like Dominic Roque, Patrick Sugui, Joe Vargas and his non showbiz girlfriend Bianca Pauline Yanga. The two were also spotted enjoying each other’s company in the Pure Magic New Year’s Party in 2019.

Besides, they also never fail to support one another in their respective projects, such as when the Queen Of Hearts made sure to be present in the premiere night of Ria’s iWant Originals digital series “Manillenials” last year!
Julia Montes and Shaina Magdayao
Julia Montes and Shaina Magdayao may have played enemies-turned-long-lost sisters in the 2018 afternoon soap opera Asintado, but in real-life, there was never any question that they would be best friends. They even watched “Goyo” together, top-billed by their co-star Paulo Avelino.

“Rare sincere friendships you stumble upon *and choose to keep* in this showbiz worrrld of ours,” Shaina Magdayao wrote on the caption of one of her posts on her Instagram story showing her friend-slash-adopted baby sister Julia.
Sofia Andres and Kathryn Bernardo
Not many might remember, Sofia and Kathryn worked together early in their careers. Sofia’s first television role was on Princess and I (2012) as the sister of Kathryn. Later in 2014, they worked together in the movie She’s Dating the Gangster.
Behind the cameras, Kathryn and Sofia are close friends who sometimes go on double dates with their boyfriends. Kathryn, Daniel Padilla, Sofia, and Daniel Miranda go on bike rides together. They also celebrated Valentine’s Day 2022 together in an out-of-town camping trip. On top of all this, Kathryn is the sweetest tita to Sofia’s daughter.
Enchong Dee and Erich Gonzales
Fans have been surely hoping for Erich Gonzales and Enchong Dee to become a couple in real life ever since they starred opposite each other in the 2009 controversial series Katorse. However, the two emphasized that they are only best friends through thick and thin. “We both knew that our relationship can’t evolve past being more than friends. I consider him as my guy best friend; we can talk about anything,” Erich said in a magazine interview.
But in order to give back to their loyal fans, the two not only feature one another in their respective vlogs, but also agreed to put up the YouTube channel EnRich Originals, wherein they would post episodes of the series they personally created and headlined, with “You.Me. Maybe” being their first-ever entry.
