From Lady Gaga and June Brown to Helen Mirren and Russell Brand, we reveal the most unlikely celebrity friendships

IT’S fair to say they mix in very different circles.

One is more likely to be found gossiping in TV’s Albert Square launderette while the other rubs shoulders with ­Hollywood’s A-listers.

But EastEnders legend June Brown revealed this week that she and Lady Gaga clicked as mates after a chat show appearance – in what seems like the least likely friendship ever.

The actress, 92, who plays Dot Cotton, said that Oscar winner Gaga, 33, even asked if she wanted to go clubbing with her. June said: “Lady Gaga invited me to go to Annabel’s, but unfortunately I had to be up early in the morning – and I thought to myself, ‘I can’t go clubbing’.”

Well, they do say opposites attract in romantic relationships – so why not in friendships, too? And clearly it must be true because June and Lady Gaga are not the only unlikely showbiz pals.

So here, we bring you some of the other unlikely couples in the ­celebosphere.

Helen Mirren & Russell Brand

Dame Helen, 73, and Russell, 43, have been BFFs since making 2011 comedy Arthur.

The comedian even tweeted a photo of Helen giving him a bath before handing her a pair of his pants.

Elton John & Eminem

They met in 2001 when they sang together at the Grammys.

Elton, 72, helped Eminem, 46, get off drugs and revealed the US rapper sent him two diamond-encrusted sex toys as a wedding gift.

Kim Jong-Un & Dennis Rodman

One is North Korea’s dictator, the other is an NBA basketball star, but Dennis, 58, and Kim, 35, bonded over sport.

They met watching America’s Harlem Globetrotters play a North Korean team.

Sigourney Weaver & Martin Clunes

Alien star Sigourney, 69, hit it off with Martin, 57, on the Jonathan Ross Show in 2014.

She said she had “watched every episode” of his TV show Doc Martin and even landed a cameo in it the next year.

Mark Wright & Millie Bobby Brown

Former Towie star Mark, 32, and Stranger Things’ Millie Bobby Brown, 15, became good pals after he interviewed her in the US.

She had a night out with his parents when they visited LA last year.

Harry Styles & Cindy Crawford

It’s strictly platonic between One Direction star Harry, 25, and supermodel Cindy, 53.

The two have been friends since 2014 after the pop star popped round to see Cindy’s son Presley.

Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher & Princess Beatrice

Beatrice, 30, reportedly met Hollywood couple Mila, 35, and Ashton, 41, through her ex-boyfriend Dave Clark, who worked for Uber, which Ashton has invested in.

The trio are now such good mates they have been snapped on hol together in St Tropez and on a pub crawl in London.

Adele & Sid Owen

Singer Adele, 31, and former EastEnder Sid, 47, met through Adele’s now ex Simon Konecki, 45.

The two men met at a time when former banker Simon liked to party in celebrity nightspots.

Ed Sheeran & Courteney Cox

Brit singer-songwriter Ed, 28, met Friends star Courteney, 54, through a mutual pal in 2013 and shortly after he moved into her Malibu beach house.

Despite being a millionaire, he lived there – rent free – for three months with his only payment being making “cups of tea”.

He did help to return the favour though by introducing her to partner Johnny McDaid, the lead singer from Snow Patrol.
