Here are 20 world famous celebrities you might not know used to live together.


Ryan Gosling and Justin Timberlake
At just 11 years old, the two met and became roommates while filming Mickey Mouse Club. Timberlake told Ellen “We were probably a little closer than the rest of the kids that were on the show just because we had to share a bathroom. The singer told Ellen “We used to do terrible things. We thought we were so cool… We stole a golf cart.”


Lea Michelle and Diana AgronThe Glee co-stars joked about being rivals on the show, but were actually BFF’s while living together! Lea told New York Magazine “We have these smackdowns at work and come home and are like, ‘Wasn’t it so funny when we were fighting today? Let’s make cookies!’


Matt Damon and Ben Affleck
The childhood best friends moved in together while filming “Good Will Hunting”, and have remained friends ever since.”We rented this house on the beach in Venice and 800 people came and stayed with us and got drunk,” Ben told Playboy in 1999. “Then we ran out of money and had to get an apartment.”


Robert Downey Jr. and Kiefer SutherlandThe Hollywood actors shared an LA apartment for 3 years while jumpstarting their careers. The two have been caught by paparazzi recently going antique shopping like an old married couple.. so sweet!


Michael Douglas and Danny DeVito
Back in the 1960’s, the pair’s long-time bromance blossomed when they shared a house in Hollywood, and 50 years later, the pair are still BFFs! They have acted in a number of movies together over the years.


Luke Brooks, Mitchell Moses and James Tedesco
The former West Tigers teammates now all play for different teams and love playing against each other for eternal bragging rights.


Andrew Garfield, Jamie Dornan and Eddie RedmayneBefore their worldwide fame, the 3 struggling actors met at auditions and decided to shack up together in Hollywood. They’d sit around complaining about all the rejections they received. They had a similar experience to many young people, living off minimum wages and ramen noodles.


Marilyn Munroe and Shelley Winters

The Hollywood starlets shared a home in the 1940s while the pair were searching for their first roles. Winters taught Munroe how to be “sexy” by tipping your chin, lowering your eyes and parting your lips slightly.”


Brad Pitt and Jason Priestly

Despite the pair’s current successes, starting out was tough. “We lived on ramen noodles and generic beer – the kind that came in white cans labeled BEER – and Marlboro Light cigarettes … We were all broke,” Priestley wrote. The two struggling actors shared an apartment in the late 80’s, and would have competitions to see who could go the longest without showering or shaving….”Brad always won” Priestly said in his memoir. Having to go on an audition meant cleaning up, which is what usually put an end to the streak.”
