Even since meeting in the 1990s making Dawson's Creek, neither member of our favorite mutual appreciation society has ever had to worry about being dateless at an award show or without a wingwoman any other night.
"When I met her, she was the coolest girl I had ever seen," Williams told Entertainment Weekly about Philipps in 2018. "She had a nose ring. She wore her hair in braids. She wore overalls. And she had this attitude like, 'I know who I am and don't cross my line.' I just thought, 'I want to be this person when I grow up.' She was my first real friend I ever had."
Added Philipps, "It was like, you know, how people say love at first sight? We had that thing. We had that friend connection. It was just an immediate: 'Of course we're drinking wine and smoking cigarettes and getting in bar fights.' We just had an immediate love for each other that's continued over the years."
