Best friends usually have some awesome story about how they met. Usually even better than the stories about how couples met. I’m telling you, ask someone how they met their best friend and it’s always going to be something like, they were in the same math class and liked the same guy and hated each other and then bonded when the hot guy wound up dating the most popular girl in school. ANYWAY!
“We’ve known each other so long. We met when she was 14 and I was 16. We met at a place that we both used to hang out in… when I was modelling and she wasn’t acting. She was working at this coffee shop or this soda shop, and I used to go hang out there and we became friendly. Once I started acting, she said, ‘Oh, I remember you!’ and we used to hang out and we became friends.”
How cute, right? A little 16-year-old Cameron Diaz kicking it at a coffee shop with a 14-year-old (and probably strung out) Drew Barrymore? I think it’s KIND OF crazy that any Barrymore would have to work the counter at some Beverly Hills coffee shop (I mean, is it even legal to work at 14?) but I guess that speaks to how down to earth and “over it” Drew’s always been.
How’d you meet your best friend? Don’t you agree that these stories are so much better than how someone met their boyfriend/girlfriend?
