10 Pairs Of Surprising Former Celebrity Roommates

Do famous people know they’re going to be famous before it happens? Do they know to gravitate to one another’s orbit in advance of their big breaks? Or is it just a lucky coincidence that so many celebrities happen to have known one another before they made it big? Even more shocking: The huge numbers of them who actually roomed with each other on their way to the top.

We’ve rounded up ten sets of surprising celebrity roommates, many of whom have actually managed to stay friends with each other after living with one another (which is more than we can say for some of our ex-roommates).

1. Jude Law and Ewan McGregor 

These two didn’t just share a house, but they allegedly were so poor they shared a room. They later, obviously, went on to become wildly successful, and founded a production company together called Natural Nylon.

2. Connie Britton and Lauren Graham

Weirdly, these two have both played our favorite cool moms ever, and they used to live together! “We lived in an empty house that we weren’t supposed to be living in,” Graham, said of their former cohabitation. “We had no furniture and all we ate were Rice Krispies Treats.”

3. Jax Taylor and Channing Tatum

Though many of us would be hardpressed to call “Vanderpump Rules” star Jax a “celebrity,” he is on one of our favorite reality TV shows. The Bravo personality reportedly lived with fellow beefcake Tatum when the two were struggling models in New York in early 2000s.

4. Wes Anderson and Owen Wilson

It’s no coincidence that Wilson is always in Anderson’s movies: The pair became college roommates after bonding during a sophomore playwriting class at the University of Texas-Austin.

5. Matt Damon and Ben Affleck

These two lived together while they wrote the screenplay to “Good Will Hunting.” Guess that living situation worked out pretty well.

Long and Hill’s roommate situation didn’t last long: Hill was reportedly way too messy for Long’s type A ways.

7. Amy Smart and Ali Larter

It totally makes sense that these two would be roommates—we’re always confusing the two of them for each other, anyway. They met while both modeling in Italy, and became quick friends, so when they moved back to the states, decided to room together.

8. Raven-Symoné and Lindsay Lohan

Hard to believe, but these two were once roommates. Raven has said she hardly ever saw LiLo, though (blame the Chateau Marmont.)
