Both Aniston and Bullock have been working in Hollywood for almost 30 years, so it is believed that they met each other simply by being in the same circle of celebrities.

And, interestingly enough, they both used to date Tate Donovan in the 1990s. Bullock dated him first in 1992 after they both met on the set of the film Love Potion No. 9. The two of them got engaged before calling it quits in 1994. Aniston and Donovan, then, began a relationship together in 1995. However, they broke up three years later.

It’s not clear if there was any bad blood between Aniston and Bullock at the time, but even if there were, the two of them are definitely over it now.

Are Jennifer Aniston and Sandra Bullock friends?

According to reports, Aniston and Bullock really connected with each other several years ago. Both ladies were at a house party hosted by Gwyneth Paltrow and a source shared that they became close there.

“They got to talking and everything just really clicked,” an insider told Us Weekly. “…They had similar outlooks on life and the same dry sense of humor. They bonded over where they were in life and what it was like to be a woman in Hollywood.”

Since then, Aniston and Bullock had kept in touch and often would hang out with each other, according to the source.

When Aniston was still with Theroux, the couple also went on double dates with Sandra Bullock and her man Bryan Randall. Moreover, when Bullock’s father passed away last year, Aniston was there for her. “Sandy and Jen have sat up into the night talking, sipping wine, commiserating,” an insider revealed to RadarOnline. “They’ve really bonded and now consider themselves best friends.”

What other celebrities are Jennifer Aniston and Sandra Bullock friends with?

Since they have been working in Hollywood for a long time now, it’s not surprising that both Aniston and Bullock have many celebrity friends.

Aniston and Ellen DeGeneres’ friendship, for example, is a pretty famous one. DeGeneres often likes to bring it up on her talk show and Aniston has been a guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show numerous times.

Additionally, Aniston is also known for being extremely close with fellow actress Reese Witherspoon. The two of them are even working on a show together, called The Morning Show, that will premiere exclusively on Apple TV.

Witherspoon even once said that Aniston had an “incredible combination of sex appeal and complete lovability. You just want to get your nails done with her and you want to make out with her—at least I do.”

Meanwhile, Bullock is great friends with actor Keanu Reeves, who she had acted in two movies with. Their friendship began in 1994 and has continued to this day. Both of them even shared that they used to have crushes on each other.

Another star that Bullock is close to is George Clooney. They, apparently, met even before they even began acting in Hollywood, but their friendship is so strong that they are still close. Clooney has even acted as Bullock’s wingman once, getting her together with a man she was going to be with for four years.

With show business being a harsh world to survive in, we have no doubt that these celebrities are grateful for the enduring friendships they have with each other.
