Friendship often leads to the best relationships, as these stars know all too well. Before dating and becoming involved in some of the most high-profile romances in the world, these famous significant others were just platonic pals.
From Prince William and Kate Middleton to Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, here are 15 celebrity couples who started out as friends.
1. Prince William and Kate Middleton
The royal couple were friends for many years before becoming the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. As Vanity Fair once recounted, the pair lived in the same dormitory at University of St. Andrews in Scotland. As undergrads, the two had mutual friends and were interested in several similar activities.
It wasn’t until their sophomore year though that things took off. The two have been together ever since, with the exception of a brief breakup in 2007. They got married in 2011 in a lavish, internationally watched ceremony at Westminster Abbey and have two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
