These are the celebrities from the inner circle of Craig Ferguson.

It’s hard not to love Craig Ferguson. There is something so sincere about the way he behaves, especially in an industry filled with fake people. Because of the clarity of Craig’s gentlemanly image, this man got away with a lot. His jokes could be on the verge of insult, and he could make statements without being crucified in the press for doing so. In addition, there have been instances of him shamelessly flirting with his female guests on Late Late when he hosted it between 2005 and 2014. However, most of the women with whom he was unashamedly attached were his friends.

Although he is far from Hollywood type and does not spend much time with the rich and famous, Craig has a few celebrity friends. Many of the people on this list entered Craig’s life through his late night show. He met others while climbing the career ladder as a comedian and actor. But each of those icons (dead or alive) spent time with Craig when the cameras were off. This is who was part of Craig’s inner circle …

15 Kristen Bell

Few celebrity actors have appeared on The Late Show with Craig Ferguson as many times as Kristen Bell. The two built a strong friendship after spending so much time together on the show, and their bond extended to their partners, Craig’s wife Meghan and husband Kristen Dax Shepard.


14 Gerard Butler

Craig and Gerard share Scottish bonds. The couple spent a lot of time together on Late Late and in the films How to Train Your Dragon. Thanks to all this, they became “good friends.” Their chemistry is truly addictive.

“Carey! You’re fired!” was Craig’s catchphrase when he played the comedian boss on The Drew Carey Show. This show made Craig famous, but it also brought him and Drew together. Their friendship continues to this day, and Drew was even asked to replace Craig on The Late Late Show when he had to take a vacation.

12 Stephen Fry

Craig adores the actor, comedian, writer, and famous philosopher Stephen Fry so much that he completely changed his show to interview him. However, his hour-long conversation with Stephen was far from the only time they spent together. Stephen and Craig did know each other when Craig was a “sad drunkard,” climbing the ladder as a comedian.

eleven Peter Capaldi

“I did take acid with my next guest,” Craig said, introducing Doctor Who, Suicide Squad and Tolstoy star Peter Capaldi.

But so much of Craig’s relationship with Michael was revealed during a heartbreaking tribute to the Daredevil star after he passed away. It is clear that Craig simply adored him.

eight Katie Lee Gifford

After hosting the Today Show with Katie Lee for a week, Craig Ferguson became loyal friends. They even decided to star in a movie called Then Came You.

I cannot explain our friendship any more than she can. But I think so: if you adore someone sincerely, you just love. “
