10 Pairs of Celebrity Best Friends That Met on the Set of a Nickelodeon TV Show
You can thank Disney Channel for a bunch of celebrity friendships, including Vanessa Hudgens & Ashley Tisdale (High School Musical), Bella Thorne & Zendaya (Shake It Up!) and Demi Lovato & Nick Jonas. And, apparently, you can thank Nickelodeon for even more.
While there are a heck of a lot of Nick co-stars who didn’t get along in real life, like, at all — last year, Alexa Nikolas said of Zoey 101 co-star Jamie Lynn Spears, “We share the same bday but not the same personality…thank God. #meanie #rude #sucks so glad those days are over 🙂 #notbffsinreallife.” Yikes — there are far more who became close, courtesy of the network. So, without further ado, here are 10 pairs of celebrity best friends that met on the set of a Nickelodeon television series:
Jennette McCurdy & Miranda Cosgrove
Nearly 4 years after the series finale of iCarly, and its leading ladies still make up the perfect pair.
In May 2016, on Miranda's 23rd birthday, Jennette posted, "We met when we were just two little beans. She was sipping Coca Cola from a bottle and I was wearing camouflage zip-off pants from Limited Too (see: "Unapologetic" — Rihanna). . . Needless to say, I thought she was the coolest person ever. 10 years and a million memories later, and I still think Miranda is the coolest person ever. You'll never find anyone with a bigger heart, a sharper sense of humor, or a better sense of authenticity in a sometimes bulls*it world. (Jk the world is perfect! Peace! Love! Daisies!) ... Miranda is the best, and if there was a government-recognized legal union for friendships, I would enter one with her."
Then, this past June, on Jennette's 24th birthday, Miranda posted an Instagram, along with the caption, "The apple of my eye, the peanut butter to my jelly, the cheese to my crackers, the protective screen to my iPhone 6s, the cowboy with a mustache to my idiot farm girl! I love her and so does everybody else. She's been making life better since I met her over 10 years ago. She's honest and hilarious and she makes me wanna be as funny and perfect as she is!"
