Meryl Streep and 50 Cent were laughing, holding hands and hamming it up for the cameras at the Knicks-Lakers game Sunday!

The unlikely (but undeniably awesome) BFFs were having a grand ol' time courtside in NYC—so much so, in fact, that they hung out after the game, too.

Mr. Cent, 38, Instagrammed several pictures of himself and the Oscar winner, 64, getting "a little gangsta" after the Knicks' win. (BTW, no need to start any 50 Streep romance rumors—Meryl's hubby Don Gummer was sitting right beside her, too.)  Lakers player Kobe Bryant joined in on the fun postgame and was all smiles in a shot Fiddy captioned, "Best ball KOBE, Best Rap 50,Best Actress Meryl Streep. TOP THAT."

Yeah, no one can top that—ever. Then again, this isn't the first friendship 50 has struck up with a woman a bit older than him. Back in 2011, he and Goldie Hawn met up for lunch to chat "about philanthropy in education and how to give back to help kids in schools succeed."

Mr. Cent and Kate Hudson's mom, 68, both raved about each other on Twitter, with Goldie writing that his "smile lit up the room" and 50 calling her "a complete sweetheart."

That 50 must be a real charmer! He realizes, too, he's got some pretty cool pals. He Instagrammed one smiling pic of himself and Meryl, writing, "Man I got a good life man lol."

Yup. Go shorty!
