Most celebrities are pretty cool, at least compared to us normals. It comes with the fame, fortune, and career success. But some celebrities just seem cooler than the rest. You know, the ones who would be voted prom queen or king, or would nab the "most popular" title in the yearbook. Who, you ask? Basically everyone on this list of celebrities who would sit at the popular table. 

Being popular now-a-days isn't about being mean. As Taylor Swift's squad has proven, it's all about lifting people up instead of knocking them down... unless you're being shady (ahem, Katy Perry). It seems that the celebrities with a lot of friends are also the ones who are the kindest and funniest - like Anna Kendrick, Hugh Jackman, and Amy Schumer. In the new Hollywood, it may just pay to be nice. Just ask the most popular of popular celebrities like Justin Timberlake and John Legend.

So take a look at this list of celebrities who would sit at the popular table and fantasize over which celebs you wish were in you squad.
