Tom Cruise and Will Smith have more than talent and great smiles in common. They’re both devoted dads – and best friends even when the cameras aren’t turned on them.
They attend each other’s premieres, and the families often hang out together – Will with wife Jada Pinkett Smith and their children Jaden and Willow, Tom with wife Katie Holmes and their daughter Suri. And when Tom was taking a drubbing for his controversial belief in Scientology, Will stuck up for him. “When I sit and talk to Tom Cruise, he is one of the greatest spirits that I’ve ever met – someone who is committed to making the world better.”
Tom has said, “We share that same level of reality and commitment that we have to our craft and our family. It’s fun. Wherever Will Smith is, that’s where the party is!”
There’s nothing like a good friend. And when your friend is a fellow parent, the bond becomes even closer because you can share all the triumphs, laughs and frustrations that go with having kids.
We rounded up some of the best celeb-dad friend-pairings for your enjoyment. Some of them might surprise you!
