The cutest local celebrity BFFs who have taken friendship goals to a whole new level
You’ve got a friend in me
Everyone needs a friend, celebrities are no different. While it might be tricky to maintain a solid friendship in show business, there are some famous buddies like Chen Hanwei and Zoe Tay who have managed to keep their friendship strong through the years. Scroll through the gallery and take a look at some of the famous faces who can’t seem to get enough of each other.
Rui En knows that she can count on Dennis Chew to have her back no matter what. Their friendship blossomed while filming the 2013 Channel 8 drama, The Dream Makers, where Dennis played Rui En’s older brother. They reprised their roles in the second instalment, which aired in 2015. Since 2013, their bond has only gotten stronger. In an interview with The New Paper, Dennis revealed that the duo has very good chemistry and they text each other every day and say things like “I love you”. The two are so close, they even took a trip together to New Zealand. The actress planned and paid for a five day, four night trip to New Zealand to celebrate the 43rd birthday of the radio deejay. The charismatic actress even made arrangements so that Dennis could look out at New Zealand’s most beautiful lake when he opened the windows in his hotel room. How thoughtful is that?
Carrie Wong and Hayley Woo are always supporting each other, whether it is giving each other shout outs on Instagram, or showing their support for each other at stage performances. Talk about #FriendshipGoals! Carrie shared this sweet snap of her making an appearance at Hayley’s musical with the caption, “She is my pride”.
These BFFs go way back. The two were first competitors at the inaugural talent show, Star Search, organised by then Singapore Broadcasting Corporation. Zoe was the winner of the competition while Chen was a finalist. The highly successful talent competition kickstarted their acting careers. We loved their on-screen chemistry in Mediacorp dramas, By My Side, Devotion and The Dream Makers. Judging by this adorable snap Ah Jie, Zoe, posted on Instagram, we’re pretty sure their off-screen friendship is still going strong. Along with a throwback picture, Zoe wrote this moving caption in Chinese, “We have known each other for 29 years. We didn’t see eye to eye initially, but with time I saw the real you (Hanwei). I feel like you grew on me. You are like an angel sent from heaven. I am so blessed to have you as a friend”.
This pair of good-looking besties have one serious bond. Felicia posted this cheeky picture of her together with her Life Less Ordinary co-stars, Jeffrey Xu (whom she is dating) and Romeo Tan with this caption, “Two male actors (Jeffrey and Romeo) whom I really like, for different reasons. Almost half way through filming Life Less Ordinary. Sometimes it feels like less of work but more of play with this group of actors”.
It seems like this pair of gorgeous besties have a still-budding friendship. They are currently working on a Malaysian production, Gifted, starring alongside each other. Dawn shared this chummy snap on Instagram with this lovey hashtag, #dowhatloversdo.
There is some serious bromance going on between these two. Initially at least, Jeffrey and Ian did not hit it off. In an interview with Toggle, the duo claimed that a malicious rumour put pressure on their friendship. Thankfully, Ian Fang was able to clear the air through an hour long phone call. Over the years, the pair continued to work together and developed a close friendship. When Ian held a mini concert in Chinatown, Jeffrey Xu showed support for his BFF by enlisting the help of his famous pals like Rebecca Lim, Romeo Tan and Ya Hui to promote Ian’s concert.
These days, former Mediacorp sweetheart, Yvonne Lim, who is based in Taiwan with her husband and son, AJ, has been spending time catching up with her bestie, Fish Leong. Having known each other for 17 years, these celebrity mums certainly share a friendship that withstands the test of time.
