Day in and day out, you work alongside the same group of people. It's not unusual for co-workers to become fast friends, and celebrities are no different. From Zoë Saldana to Eva Longoria, these 10 Latinas all became best friends with their co-stars:

The Devious Maids are best friends -- on and off screen.
Ana Ortiz told us that the ladies are practically family. “I thought that after Ugly Betty I would never find another family [among a cast]. It’s a rare thing. And I come to this set and see these women that have been auditioning against each other for years, and now we get to share a project,” she said of Edy Ganem, Roselyn Sanchez, Judy Reyes, and Dania Ramirez. “It gives it a grounding that I love. These are my comadres. I love them to pieces, and I lean heavily on them.”
3. Cameron Diaz

Cameron Diaz and her bestie, Drew Barrymore, met while they were both young actresses in Los Angeles. However, the two didn’t really bond until they were both cast in the action film Charlie’s Angels. Ever since, the two have been inseparable.
“Cameron Diaz is one of the greatest friends anyone can ever have,” Barrymore said. “She has so much love to give. We also support each other through the bad times. I’ve always felt like she’s my big sister, but at the same time, I know that sometimes I’m wiser and a bit less naive than she is. We just spend so much time having fun and laughing together. That’s what true friendship is about.”
