These Backstage Movie Awards Friends Give Us Serious Squad Goals

BRB, dream casting like 40 movies in my head

The beautiful thing about Hollywood is that it's all just a big group of genetically-gifted people living and working together in the same city. No where else can TK and Robert Pattinson film a movie together, to then say goodbye at the end of the day so Pattinson can get drinks with Vince Vaughn.

You may wonder how these atypical friendships are formed, and a lot of the time it's backstage at awards shows like the MTV Movie Awards. Check out unlikely pairs and triples that met up behind the scenes over a tub of golden popcorn -- and hey -- they may be texting each other right now after meeting up last night. 👯
