The origin and definition of "Eskimo brothers" can be traced back to the early days of FX's The League, which employed the term to describe a pair of men (especially friends) who have both dipped in the same lady pond. The logic behind the phrase is that the two members of the Eskimo brotherhood have both "shared an igloo" with the same lady Eskimo. Despite the term's racist undertones (shouldn't it be "Inuit brothers?"), people still use it today whenever they hear of bros knocking boots with the same gals.
When it comes to Hollywood celebrities, there seem to be new Eskimo brotherhoods popping up every day. Some Eskimo brotherhoods are scandalous (such as when bros knowingly dated their friends' exes), and some are mere coincidences, but most brotherhoods end in a newfound bond between the bros in question.Through extensive research, we have discovered that there are famous Eskimo bros dating back to the first century B.C., and probably even before that. So we have assembled an almost-exhaustive database of past and current Eskimo brotherhoods spanning the centuries. We hope that you enjoy this list of famous men who slept with the same woman, and that you vote up your all-time favorite bros.
Joe DiMaggio & JFK
DiMaggio and JFK were probably the most famous members of the Marilyn Monroe Eskimo Brotherhood. Only one received a super special "Happy Birthday" gift, though.
Leonardo DiCaprio & Ryan Reynolds
They may not share the same level of acting talent, but they do share the same taste in women: Both guys have been with Blake Lively .
Chris Evans & Justin Timberlake
Before marrying Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel got swept off her feet by Captain America himself.
Marc Antony & Julius Caesar
The timeless phenomenon of Eskimo brothers has been occurring ever since the first century B.C., when both Marc Antony and his best bro, Julius Caesar, knocked sandals with Cleopatra. We assume they later high-fived over a plate of Mediterranean olives and a murder at the local Coliseum.
