Lively and Blunt are friends separately, and the two went to Michael Kors’ fall-winter 2018 fashion show together in February. But the friendship extends to their spouses as well. Reynolds and Lively showed up to the premiere of Krasinski and Blunt’s “A Quiet Place” to support the couple’s latest movie. This was their second time spotted out together in recent weeks.

As neighbors, a prank war erupted years ago between the two couples around Christmas. On a 2014 episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Kimmel explained that the pranks had started three years prior after Blunt and Krasinski broke into his and McNearney’s home to put up some light-up decorations. The pranks have hilariously escalated through the years.

Blackstock, a music manager, actually manages Blake Shelton, so the two couples are now close. Clarkson told “E! News” that the couples double date.
“You know, we’ve already [double dated] at her house, which is magnificent,” Clarkson said. “And [Stefani’s] family was there. It’s a real testament of how she’s such an awesome girl – it’s ’cause of her family. Her family was super rad and down to earth. They’re really, really cool.”
Clarkson also revealed that they have a group text.
“Gwen always starts this sweet, and positive text and Blake and I always take it somewhere else,” she said. “Him and my husband have that boy humor going on.”

“[Kutcher and Shepard] fell in love and they remained friends, and I was just lucky enough to work with Mila on [‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’],” Bell said. “We became great friends and that contributed to ‘Bad Moms,'” Bell said. “But yes, we love [each other]. It’s a very nice foursome, and we have kids the same age. They’re good people.”

Chopra presented Armie Hammer and Elizabeth Chambers with the NextGen Philanthropic Leaders award at the Learning Lab Ventures gala in February 2019 and spoke about the first time she met the couple.
“It was surely destiny that one magical night at the Met Gala, at the same table where I met my husband Nick, that I also met these two warm, dynamic people I am lucky enough to call my friends,” Chopra said. “What connected us on a deeper level is that we understood we have a responsibility as individuals to leverage our position and our privilege to give back – because we can.”
