With President Obama leaving the White House, we also have to say goodbye to one of our favorite bromances of all-time.
Yup, you know what we’re talking about. The leader of the free world and his “brother” Vice President Joe Biden.
Remember that time Biden made a friendship bracelet for Obama?

Or when their selfie game was on fire?
To honor the iconic White House friendship, we pulled together seven of our very favorite Jewish bromances.
Jonah Hill and Adam Levine
The actor and the Maroon 5 frontman have been best bros since childhood (they even carpooled to school together). In 2014, Hill officiated Levine’s wedding. #FriendshipGoals.
Seth Rogen and James Franco
Often a bromance is just hinted at: a longing glance here, a hug there, the rest is left to our (juicy) imagination. But not when it comes to best buddies Seth Rogen and James Franco. In a parody of Kanye West’s video “Bound 2,” they gifted us with a full blown make out session on a motorcycle.
Zac Efron and Dave Franco
James is not the only Franco brother who’s got some bro-loving. The bromance between Dave Franco and his “Neighbors”-co-star Zac Eforn is so real that tabloids even regularly announce that the two are dating. This was spurred on by a sarcastic Instagram post of James congratulating his little brother on the relationship with Efron. Sadly not true. A girl can dream, though.
Donald Faison and Zach Braff
Donald Faison and Zach Braff are one of the most iconic TV bromances, but their love extends from the set of “Scrubs” out into the real world. The two tweet at each other, spend birthdays together, and Braff even took over an AMA that Faison was doing on Reddit.
If this isn’t the picture of love, what is?
Ansel Elgort and Nat Wolff
“Divergent” star Ansel Elgort and “Paper Towns” lead Nat Wolff met on the set of “The Fault in Our Stars.” Since then the two have become inseparable and even tag their Instagram pictures with #bff. But the ultimate proof of their bromance was when they recreated this alternate “The Fault in Our Stars” movie poster pictured above.
Fans love their love so much that they create a celebrity couple nickname for them: Nansel.
Dave Coulier, John Stamos and Bob Saget
What’s better than two guys celebrating their bromance? Three!
Dave Coulier, John Stamos and Bob Saget met on the set of “Full House” in the 1990s, and have been friends since. They got to rekindle their guy love when Netflix rebooted “Fuller House.”
Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert
All I want in life is for someone to look at me the way Jon Stewart looks at Stephen Colbert.
Stewart gave his Colbert his start as a correspondent on “The Daily Show” and the two men continue to be close long after leaving the show. Stewart even used to have a bobble head of his friend in his office.
After all that Jewish bromantic love, its time for a celebration!
Variety released a breakdown of the highest paid actors and personalities on television and the results are, for lack of a better word, staggering.
Judy Sheindlin, otherwise known as Judge Judy, racks up $47 million a year, making her the highest paid personality on television. Other Jewish stars headlining reality and talk shows are collecting sizable yearly pay checks as well, with Adam Levine making $13-15 million for “The Voice,” Chelsea Handler clocking in at $10 million a year for her Netflix show “Chelsea,” and Andy Cohen, the host of “What What Happens Live,” pulling in $4-5 million.
Television actors are also racking up sizable pay checks. Jonah Hill pulls in $350,000 per episode on the Netflix show “Maniac,” Sarah Jessica Parker makes $275,000 for each episode of her television show “Divorce,” and Mandy Patinkin gets $150,000 per episode on “Homeland.”
Well done, everybody. Well done.
We’ve just discovered a Jewish bromance for the ages.
Jonah Hill stopped by “The Howard Stern Show” yesterday to promote his new film “War Dogs” and (as all Stern celebrity interviews tend to go) dropped some delicious gems along the way.
Turns out the 32-year-old actor has been friends with Adam Levine since childhood and was even asked to officiate the singer’s wedding to model Behati Prinsloo.
Hill recalled terror hitting when he realized that his speech might have to be funny.
“I’m writing all these things and then I realize I have no jokes because I’m just trying to be thoughtful and respectful and loving,” he told Stern. “And then the fucking sick egomaniac inside of you says ‘Well I gotta kill a little bit too.’”
In the end, though, Hill went for sweet. “I just talked about what they’re both like, they’re very easy to say nice things about,” he said. “Some weddings you go to, you’re like these fucking people are going to get divorced. They love each other and they match each other.”
He did go in for one joke though, chiding his friend for all the famous people in attendance.
“Adam and I grew up together,” Hill recalled saying. “It’s so nice to see all the people we grew up skateboarding together growing up. Stevie Nicks, Robert Downey Jr.”
Jokes aside, the question on Stern’s mind was whether or not Hill made the moves on any of the many models attending the ceremony.
The answer, much to the shock jock’s chagrin, was a hard no.
“Afterwards I finished and I was fucking drained,” he said laughing. “I left the party after like 30 minutes.”
Singer-songwriter Adam Levine is paying for the funeral of a 22-year-old “Voice” contestant who was shot to death on Friday.
Christina Grimmie’s brother, Marcus, wrote Sunday on Facebook that he was “blown away” that Levine had called his mother and offered to shoulder the cost of the funeral and travel arrangements.
Levine, who coached Grimmie on “the Voice,” shared a photo of himself and the singer in a tweet, writing that he and his wife Behati Prinsloo were “devastated” by the young woman’s death.

Grimmie was shot in Orlando by 27-year-old Kevin Loibl after a performance. Police did not offer the gunman’s motive, although a spokesman said Loibl had traveled to Orlando to commit the crime in question, CNN reported.
On Sunday, violence again shook Orlando when a gunman killed 49 people at a gay nightclub in the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

Adam Levine just proved he’s more than just your fantasy Jewish boyfriend.
In an appearance on “The Tonight Show,” the “Voice” coach and Maroon 5 lead singer played a round of “Wheel of Musical Impressions” with Jimmy Fallon.
The rules are as follows: Each participant must impersonate a singer interpreting a random song (not from their repertoire} — think Frank Sinatra singing “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes.”
Fallon’s Bob Dylan singing “Rude” almost won our hearts but Adam Levine really takes the prize with his impression of Michael Jackson belting out the “Sesame Street” theme song.
Since no words can adequately describe the performance, check out the segment for yourself:
