6 Celebrities Who Are Best Bros For The Duration Of Their Project’s Publicity Tour
There’s nothing like the glow of a newly-discovered friendship between two previously-unlinked co-stars to help boost the box office of the latest Hollywood blockbuster. The same can be said about vanity restaurants, musical collaborations, and court-ordered community service initiatives. When famous folks get friendly, everybody wins – as long as you have points on the back end, of course.
Let’s take a look at 6 celebrities who are best bros for the duration of their project’s publicity tour.
Marilyn Manson and Taylor Swift
Manson hasn’t had a hit in over a decade, but that didn’t stop him from courting controversy with the last remaining shreds of his audience via a full-on Taylor Swift cover album. Sensing the chance to tap into the underserved ‘men who have been living in their parent’s basement since 2002’ demographic, as well as appear dangerous in a completely safe and accessible way to her current fan base, Swift has been seen arm in arm with Manson on a fully-sponsored tour of Coldstone Creameries across the country.
Ben Affleck and Bernie Sanders
Affleck’s personal politics are no secret – and neither is his willingness to spend 6 hours in the makeup chair each morning and dwindle his Batman-esque physique down to a meager 120 lbs so that he can play fellow New Englander Bernie Sanders in an upcoming biopic. Sanders, on the other hand, has been burning away his post-election blues by telling anyone in the media who will listen that ‘Affleck was the bomb in Phantoms,’ while simultaneously wearing an ‘I’m with Ben’ shirt that’s two sizes too big for him.
Hulk Hogan and the Ghost of Ronald Reagan
These two have been seen palling around at séances and ouija parties for the past couple of months as Hogan weighs his chances of gaining a senate seat in Florida. After his recent settlement with Gawker, he’s certainly got the cash for a post-ring political career, but without Ronnie Raygun calling the shots as a strategist, he knows he doesn’t stand a chance. Reagan, meanwhile, is still dead, and plans to remain dead for the foreseeable future, no matter how much money Vince McMahon throws his way to slap on the spandex one last time.
