    Michelle Williams and Busy Phillips, who famously attended the 2012 Oscars together, became friends after Phillips joined the cast of "Dawson's Creek" in 2001. "We shot that television show in a small town in North Carolina," Phillips told the Wall Street Journal of filming the WB drama with the actress, "so it’s a very heightened experience when you’re away from all of your actual friends and family. We became each other’s everything in that time." According to Pop Sugar, Phillips is the godmother of Williams' daughter Matilda Rose.

    Tina Fey and Amy Poehler formed a friendship in 2001 when Poehler joined the cast of "Saturday Night Live" while Fey was the head writer for the sketch comedy series. Fey later praised Poehler in her bestselling autobiography "Bossypants" for helping her feel comfortable in the male-dominated environment. “Amy made it clear that she wasn’t there to be cute," Fey said of Poehler's stint on "SNL." "She wasn’t there to play wives and girlfriends in the boys’ scenes. She was there to do what she wanted to do and she did not [bleeping] care if you like it,” she wrote in the bestseller.  “With Amy there, I felt less alone.” The duo, who starred in the comedies "Mean Girls" and "Baby Mama," are set to host the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards next year.
