Forget FaceTime and Zoom — the celebrity group chat is where it’s at. Whether it’s Taylor Swift’s squad or the cast of the Avengers, these are the famous text chains every fan wishes they could be a part of.
Luckily, Hollywood’s biggeststars often give fans a bit of insight at what it’s like inside these never-ending conversations with their close pals and costars. Riverdale star Madelaine Petsch described her cast’s group chat as “lit,” while the Dawson’s Creek WhatsApp is more exclusive than you might imagine — just ask Busy Philipps.
The Cougar TownExclusively told by alum Us Weekly she was surprised to hear that her former costars — Katie Holmes, Joshua JacksonAnd James Van Der Beek — were constantly keeping in touch without her. “I was like, ‘Oh, wow. OK, well, that’s cool,’” Philipps said in 2018, before joking, “I have everyone’s number individually. Should I just text them all together, like, ‘Hey, guys. Want to include me in?’”
Not everyone agrees that there should be more text messages. One reason Philipps wasn’t that upset about being left off the Dawson’s Creek phone tree is because she has “enough group texts that drive me insane.”
The Freaks and Geeks alum told Use, “I truly cannot stand a group text. Because when people get going, and if you’re in a meeting or you’re doing something and then you get to your phone and you have like 40 missed texts, and you have to weed through.”
Fans might be willing not to pay for the numerous notifications if they have the chance to get in on the action Dune, BridgertonOr the Big Little Lies cast’s star-studded text chains. In 2019, Nicole Kidman revealed that the HBO show’s message group was no boys allowed — and very light on emojis.
Some TV shows even allow multiple conversations to be going at the same moment, such as One Tree HillThis chat is for dads only. As sweet as it may sound Sophia Bush swears that the girl’s online hangout is where you want to be — it includes every former female cast member from the show, including Hilarie BurtonAnd Bethany Joy Lenz.
Candace Cameron-Bure UseThere are two threads to choose from Full HouseAnd Fuller House — but only a handful of cast members have access to both. No surprise, she’s one of the lucky ones.
