Heart Evangelista and Lovi Poe
Friendship blooms in different ways and for Heart and Lovi, their friendship was forged through working together. As a matter of fact, they both came from the same high school but only became inseparable when they became actresses!
It can be remembered that Lovi was one of the people who were very supportive of Heart when the latter had a miscarriage in 2018. Heart, on the other hand, is also very open about how she values her friendship with Lovi. She regularly posts their BFF photos on Instagram and would oftentimes upload “appreciation posts” for the Kapuso actress.

Hindi po papatol ang kapatid ko sa mga sinasabi ninyo ? Pero bilang Ate, hindi ko naman po yata kayang panuorin na patuloy po siyang binabato ng mga masasakit na salita dahil nananahimik siya. ~ this was me and nadz last night, watching how some of us become cruel over untrue statements. ? Initially we all laughed about how crazy the things that woke us up yesterday were, and then…. they started getting out of hand, at di na yun tama.. Ayaw na po sana namin patulan, but we decided to post something because cyber-bullying is not okay, it is never okay. Be careful with the words you say, and things you THINK are true on social media. They're not always the truth. Do not be so quick to point fingers, when you do not have the proper information. #thinkbeforeyouclick ~ We're all okay. Sana po kayo din. Let's respect everyone. ?❤️
Nadine and Yassi first met on the set of the blockbuster movie Diary ng Panget. They got to work together again for another movie, Talk Back and You’re Dead later that year and became inseparable since.
Time after time, these two always prove that their friendship is above intrigues. The most recent one was when Nadine defended Yassi’s sister Issa Pressman after fans accused the latter of being the reason for her break-up with ex-boyfriend James Reid.

Dubbed as “Kuya’s Angels,” Bianca, Mariel, and Toni formed their friendship while working as hosts for Pinoy Big Brother. And while the popular TV show is yet to launch a new season, these three still remain friends and would casually update their fans about their bonding moments—the cutest one being their playdate with their kids at Toni’s home. How adorable!
Erich Gonzales and Enchong Dee
After starring together in a handful of projects, it not surprising that Enchong and Erich have grown to become really good friends. From their first acting stint in Katorse to Maria la del Barrio to The Blood Sisters, these two have become inseparable.
But while many fans still hope for them to be a real-life couple, these two celebrity BFFs prove that their friendship is already beautiful as it is.
