Nicole Richie and Christina Aguilera 1 of 10We always think of Nicole Richie and Christina Aguilera as making up the coolest mommies group in Hollywood. Though both have fallen away from their hard-partying lifestyles since becoming moms, they often enjoy a night off from mom duty together. Christina even helped throw Nicole a bachelorette party after her engagement to Joel Madden!

Nicole and Jennifer 2 of 10Nicole seems to be gaining lots of mom friends these days and has been spotted out and about with Jennifer Meyer lately. It makes sense the two would be friends, considering they have similar style, two young kids at home, and a love of jewelry design. We see the makings of a BFF kind
of mom bond.

Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek 3 of 10These two bonded through a love of adventure, dedication to their acting dreams, and shared native Spanish language. When filming the movie Bandidas together, Penelope and Salma’s plane almost crashed on the way to set. Penelope said, “We almost died. At that very moment a thought came across my mind that if I were to die at that moment, at least I’d die with my best friend.”

Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts 4 of 10These celeb besties met in Australia and moved to Hollywood to pursue careers in acting. While success came pretty quickly for Nicole, Naomi struggled through five years of auditions and no substantial roles. It was Nicole who encouraged her not to give up on her dream, and Naomi returned the favor later by helping Nicole through her first pregnancy.

Leah Remini and Jennifer Lopez 5 of 10J. Lo and talk-show host Leah have been joined at the hip for years — they shop, they giggle, they lunch, they talk scientology. It’s no wonder their daughters Sofia and Emme are becoming

Liv Tyler and Kate Hudson 6 of 10Liv and Kate became fast friends while filming Dr. T and the Women in 2000, and they've stayed close, perhaps bonding over the fact that they're both working moms in New York City and the daughters of super-famous parents. They even get ready for events together. Liv told Us Magazine, "We have this little ritual where we meet at 2 or 3 o'clock and we drink champagne and do hair and makeup and take pictures."

Mariska Hargitay and Hugh Jackman 7 of 10We wonder if Mariska sought the Aussie’s advice when she was going through the process of adopting Amaya since Hugh’s two tykes, Ava and Oscar, are also adopted. Either way, their first playdate was a hit, and we’re sure they’re on the road to becoming even better friends.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Stella McCartney 8 of 10These might be the most fashionable friends on our list. Gwyneth and Stella often hold playdates — usually joined by fellow British ex-pat Madonna and her kids. We like to imagine that their kids play the most stylish game of dress-up ever while their moms lounge around with glasses of wine.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler 9 of 10These famous, funny moms share everything from TV shows (SNL) to movies (Baby Mama) to — as we like to imagine — potty-training tips. When asked about the moment they met in 1993, Amy said, “I was like, I finally found the woman I want to marry,” to which Tina quipped, “And then I had to break it to her that that's not legal.”

Reese Witherspoon and Kate Winslet 10 of 10At the BAFTA Britannia Awards, Reese explained how her friendship with Kate started, saying: "Imagine my good fortune when Kate Winslet moved into my neighborhood, rang my doorbell and said, 'Dahling, Sam [Mendes, Kate's now ex-husband] is off shooting, and I believe our children are the same age. Could they possibly have a play date, and oh, by the way, it's almost 9 o'clock and I've had nothing to drink, do you have any wine?'"
