You've got a famous friend in me: stars and their best pals

Even the biggest stars need a shoulder to lean on or a partner in crime. Whether they have known each other for years or met while working on a new project, celebrities like Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio are there for each other through it all. They offer their best buddies plenty of support during personal difficulties and cheer each other on at premieres and award shows.

Kate and Leo's friendship began when they played young lovers in 1997's Titanic, which launched both of their careers.

"We both started when we were young and have always been great friends ever since Titanic," says Leo. "We have always been there for each other."

The two returned to the big screen together in 2008's Revolutionary Road, for which Kate won a Golden Globe. Leo was one of the first to congratulate his friend with a big hug, while she acknowledged him on stage, saying, "Leo, I am so happy I can stand here and tell you how much I love you"
