George Lopez, Sandra Bullock Friendship Among Many in Hollywood

By on
  • George Lopez
    In 2000, Bullock approached rising stand-up comedian Lopez and asked him to produce and star in a sitcom that featured Hispanics. ABC picked up the “George Lopez” show, which ran for six seasons. Lopez credits Bullock with helping him in his rise to fame. "She invested in me, and she wouldn't take no for an answer. And with that, and just who she is, she has my undying love, and my undying loyalty," he told People magazine after his talk show was cancelled. "Every day I thank her for believing in me." REUTERS
  • Leonardo di Caprio
    The “Titanic” and “Spiderman” superstars go way back. Dicaprio and Maguire met when they were just a couple of barely pubescent actors looking for work. They would wind up going to several of the same auditions and even end up on the same movie and television sets. The two have gained international fame since then, but they remain steadfast friends. Dicaprio and Maguire will soon star in Baz Luhrmann’s film adaptation of “The Great Gatsby” as Jay Gatsby and Nick Carraway, respectively. Reuters
  • Tim Burton with actor Johnny Depp
    Here is another friendship that goes way back. Depp and Burton first worked together when Depp starred in Burton’s film “Edward Scissorhands.” The film became one of Burton’s most famous works, opening new doors for Depp and leading to future collaborations. Other Burton-Depp movies include “Ed Wood,” “Sleepy Hollow,” a remake of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” “Corpse Bride,” “Sweeney Todd,” and “Alice in Wonderland.” Reuters Photo
  • Anne Hathaway
    Beauties Blunt and Hathaway did some serious bonding on the set of “The Devil Wears Prada.” The weight they had to lose for the movie made them turn to each other for comfort. “I basically stuck with fruit, vegetables and fish,” Hathaway reportedly said. “Emily and I would clutch at each other and cry because we were so hungry.” Hathaway even reportedly set up Blunt with her future husband, actor John Krasinski.
