The 14 Hottest Best Friends from Chick Flicks

Updated June 14, 2019 1.8k votes 219 voters 444.4k views14 items

There's nothing more important to a leading woman in a romantic comedy than her best friend, because she sees her through the toughest of times -- but the lead woman herself is a terrible friend. The best friend is usually not only less neurotic, more down to earth and a little more "alt" looking; but generally more understanding and, realistically, more of a dream girl than any lead in most chick flicks. So, in honor of the girls in all the movies we always watch to try and get laid, here are the hottest best friends in the history of chick flicks.

Who are the hottest best friends in chick flicks? Take a look at these 14 ladies and see for yourself. You got some excellent choices on here. These are the hottest best friend characters from the sexiest chick flicks of all time.
  • Played the best friend: Clueless

    Brittany Murphy played one of the most hotly-turned-around and amazingly madeover women in romantic comedy history: Tai. She was a girl who had the awesome, one-of-the-guys mentality who was turned into one of the "queen bees" and then once they realized they were all being bitches, settled comfortably in the middle where she ended up being pretty much any straight dude's dream girl.

    Sure, she was a little rough around the edges at first, but Tai from Clueless (that I watched in the '90s much more than any straight man with an incurable crush on Alicia Silverstone should have) is one of the greatest dream girls in the history of comedies revolving around women learning something about themselves and then making it so that the dudes that they're interested in can handle them.

    Played the best friend: Can't Hardly Wait

    Playing the best friend of Seth Green's ultimate douche, Scumbag Steve-like character "Kenny" in Can't Hardly Wait really does put her on this list because not only is she a slamming ginger (click on the picture to the left to enlarge it... she really get's THAT hot) but she's really one of those girls whose career doesn't allow her true hotness to really come through... which means that the character she plays, theoretically, are ostensibly AMAZING in bed. That's just how the works. Deal with it.

    She plays the best friend to a lead in the romantic comedy Can't Hardly Wait who ends up settling for a total loser (much like most women on this list) yet ends up making a better choice in the end, actually (by dumping that total loser.)

    Lauren Ambrose, if you saw her at a party and not on a huge HD screen, is one of the hottest girls on this list and deserves a spot if not for the fact that she went through an entire season of Six Feet Under playing a character most big named actresses would've given up on after season 1.

    Krysten Ritter Played the best friend in: She's Out of My League, Confessions of a Shopaholic, What Happens in Vegas

    Any movie you haven't really wanted to see, all those movies that you complain about Ashton Kutcher just making for the money (that you end up getting forced to pay to see anyway,) this girl is in it. Not only is she in it, but she basically takes over where Zooey Deschanel left off in her "best friend" career and wears it proud.

    THIS girl's been at it for years and she works more steadily than any actor you know (personally,) so naturally, she's recognizable. Most likely, you know her as that one sort of Suicide Girls looking chick that you saw in Confessions of a Shopaholic that never looked quite right wearing any of that light blue "high fashion" stuff. Or as that shining oasis in the middle of a sea of crappy jokes, superficial plots and chicks you know wouldn't be underdogs, but underwear models in real life.

    Here are some great examples of why she's something to look forward to on "date night":

  • Anna Faris is listed (or ranked) 4 on the list The 14 Hottest Best Friends from Chick Flicks

    Played the best friend: The Hot Chick

    Anna Faris played Rob Schneider/Rachel McAdams's best friend in this movie and slowly fell in love with Rob Schneider, which means that she adheres to the rules of this list in that she 1) is the lead girl's best friend before she finds her true love and 2) decides to settle for a guy waaaaaaay below her league just because he happens to show her more attention that anyone ever has.

    The fact that a girl as adorable as Anna Faris would ever "settle" for anyone is absurd, but the fact that her, as a funny and awesome chick, would ever do this for you, the common man, is an awesome concept.

    And these lingering thoughts, as well as the score in whatever game's currently playing, what you need at the grocery store, or what 15 second clip is going to get you through the night, are what gets most men through romantic comedies. Having someone as hot as Anna Faris doesn't hurt either.
