Top Ten Tuesdays: Ten Celebrities I Wouldn't Mind Being Friends With

Admit it. You've thought about it. You've thought about being famous and having famous friends from Hollywood. Not the friends you see at awards shows or parties, but the ones that you'd invite to spend the weekend on your yacht in Crete. If you haven't thought of it, I'm guess I'm the only one who has. Here are my Celeb BFFS. This list could also double as celebrities I would want to meet.


1. Miranda July

We could become creative partners and make adult-sized footie pajamas while writing stories about our childhoods and our lost loves on the bottoms of shoes.

2. Natalie Portman

Besides the whole making-out-by-the-wailing-wall thing in 2005, she seems like a really cool person,. She's a Harvard grad and I really enjoy that she uses her power as a celebrity to be a spokesperson for humanitarian groups such as FINCA International and Do Something and animal rights.

3. Claire Danes

Maybe it's the teenage connection to her when she played Angela in My So-Called Life. I feel that she still has a little bit of that awkward, introspective poet in her, and I also think if we were BFFs I could talk her out of being a Latisse spokeswoman.

4. Juliette Lewis

If you haven't noticed, Juliette Lewis is kind of fucking awesome. She'd probably ask me to play the tambourine in her punk band and braid her hair backstage in the VIP lounge while we drink PBRs after our shows.

5. Amanda Bynes

Even though these days she's been getting a lot of flack for her Twitty Tweets, if Amanda were my BFF she would tweet me something like this: "OMG @JennaBFF! Haha girl you can have my chocolate."

6. Shirley Manson

"If you have any opinions at all or if you're even remotely verbal then they're going to call you fiery. I don't think they can deal with someone being complex and contradictory; it's not acceptable, you have to be a cartoon, a stereotype. I am a contradictory mess but I see it as my prerogative to change my mood like the weather. And nobody's going to make me do otherwise. I've been like this since I was born. You could go back to Edinburgh and ask anybody and they'll tell you that I've always been the same." - Shirley Manson (The Minx, January 1999)

7. Cindy Sherman

Cindy and I would take pictures of each other dressed as female bowlers with matching league polos. And then we would have a beer afterward and she would judge me with her artist snob.

8. Kelly Clarkson

"You have one message. From: 'Kelly Clarkson' Time: 5:38 PM Message: 'OH SINCE YOU'VE BEEN GONE...I'VE BEEN MISSING YOU OH SO MUCH! Jenna, it's Kelly, you should come over and eat ice cream on my couch with me and watch 'From Justin to Kelly' again and we can laugh at my horrible acting."

9. Alecia Moore AKA Pink

As my best friend I could deliberately pick fights and KNOW for a fact that the other bitch was going down because Pink was on my side, and she has brass knuckles surgically implanted into her hands. Well, not realy, but we'd win the fight and then ride off on her BMX bike into the sunset.

10. Zooey Deschanel

If Zooey and I were BFFS we would mostly hit karoke bars and sing 50's tunes and then she would let me borrow all of her clothes in her closet.
