1: C, Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter! Burton and Depp have worked together on seven films, most recently 2010's Alice in Wonderland. In 2003, these dudes turned their work relationship personal when Burton and Helena Bonham Carter asked Depp to be the godfather to their son, Billy.

2: B, Gwyneth Paltrow and Drew Barrymore! Paltrow's father, Bruce, was BFF with Spielberg, who cast a young Gwynnie as Wendy in her first film, Hook. Spielberg officially took Drew Barrymore under his wing in 1982 during the filming of E.T.

3: A, Sting and Trudie Styler! For better or worse, Sting and Trudie are responsible for introducing fellow Brit Guy Ritchie to Madonna during a party at their home in 1999. A year later, when Rocco was born, Madge and Guy repayed Sting and Trudie for the setup by making them their son's godparents.

4: B, Jake Gyllenhaal! Jake costarred alongside Heath and Michelle in 2005's Brokeback Mountain, and the three became very close friends. But Jake has his own set of famous godparents, as well: Jamie Lee Curtis and Paul Newman!

5: C, Drew Barrymore! Both Frances and Drew know what it's like to grow up in the spotlight with often-MIA parents. A music and fashion lover herself, Frances takes right after her famous godmother, Drew.
