It’s time to take a look at the most important relationship in a celebrity’s life, and we’re not talking about their romantic partners. Throughout history, these beloved dogs have been living a lavish lifestyle with their wealthy owners. Basically, they’ve seen them at their best and their worst. No one knows Hollywood’s elite, better than the pups who stand beside them.
That being said, they’re in the fortunate position of being adored by the rich and famous and sharing a special bond like no other. They’re best friends with the biggest diva’s and don’t talk back. At Popular Everything, we’re peeking into the private lives of celebrities and their precious pooches.
A Therapeutic Friendship
It’s no secret that actress Amanda Seyfried is completely obsessed with her hound, Finn. She even opened his own Instagram account for him. With over 80 thousand followers, many people want to stay in the know with his whereabouts. And Amanda doesn’t take her role as a show dog mom lightly.
Amanda brings Finn to most places she goes, even public events. And she even credits the Australian Shepherd with helping her battle her anxiety. “As soon as he was mine, like 24 hours after I got him, I realized something about me needed him. He completely changed my life and helped me find my solitude and my independence,” she asserted.
Rescue and Restore
London-born actor Tom Hardy had an unbreakable bond with his pooch, Woodstock. He was heartbroken in 2017 when he passed away, which led to an emotional tribute from the Venom star. “He was a stray. 11 weeks old,” wrote the actor, who almost ran him over with his car in Atlanta. He decided to take the stray puppy in as his own, “and we rode and took him straight to the pet store to clean him up and buy him things. It was wonderful.”
Tom explained that over the years “Woody” had been on many sets and met many crews. “I don’t normally speak out about family and friends but this is an unusual circumstance. Woody affected so many people in his own right.” He wanted to give her beloved pet his autonomy, but felt he had to write something as he was a familiar face to a lot of people, both personally and over social media. He was, as Tom put it, his “bestest friend ever.”
Speaking for Those Who Can’t Speak Back
Siren of the 50s and 60s, the French former actress and singer Brigitte Bardot has always had a very soft spot for dogs. Today, she’s an animal rights activist who uses her public persona to fight for animal wellness. She is also a vegetarian, refusing to consume the creatures she loves more than anything.
She even started the Brigitte Bardot Foundation for the Welfare and Protection of Animals back in 1986, which she funded herself after auctioning off much of her jewelry collection and personal items. Her activism is loud and unabashed, often personally addressing politicians, ministers, and royal family members to do more for animal welfare.
She Gets It From Her Momma
One of the highest-paid and most famous actresses from India, Priyanka Chopra is an exceedingly proud dog mom. Her obsession with documenting her pup led to the creation of a separate doggie Instagram account, which she calls the “diaries of Diana.” She writes, “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.”
Priyanka wasn’t wrong – Diana’s Instagram account has accumulated a large and loyal following of almost 150k. It seems like the women in that family are just drawn to the spotlight. Luckily, her new husband Nick Jonas is just as fond of Diana as everyone is.
I’m Coming With You
Captain America actor Chris Evans’ best friend is Dodger, a mixed breed boxer dog. Fans will know him already as he’s a regular on the actor’s social media. Chris even managed to cause an accidental rush of concern for Dodger when he wrote: “Really missing this guy right now.” All in vain, as he was talking about being without him for two months during filming for Fantastic Four.
Chris actually found Dodger while filming the movie Gifted, when one of the last scenes to shoot was in a shelter. He struck up an instant connection with the boxer, who “was trying so hard to stay seated even though he desperately wanted to get out.” He recalls that “I knew right away that he was coming home with me.”
Spider-Man actor Tom Holland is obsessed with his blue Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Tessa. He spams his fans with pictures of her on his Instagram and often takes the opportunity to campaign against the stereotype of their breed being especially dangerous. “Staffies are considered to be very dangerous dogs. Which is not true, it’s not the case,” he asserts.
“They are not aggressive. She is the sweetest, most angelic thing you’ll ever meet,” Tom gushes. This image is of the first press event that he ever took her to, revealing that “she got super scared of the cameras at first and just ran away. But then she came back and had a really nice time.”
In this image from 1958, Marilyn Monroe cozies up to a Borzoi Russian sighthound on the set of the Jean Harlow shoot for the “Fabled Enchantresses” series for LIFE magazine. Her affection for dogs was evident even backstage in the dressing room, as we see her squeezing the sizeable animal on her lap.
They chose an equally glamorous counterpart to pose alongside the 50s film siren. With the matching blonde hair and sparkly collar, the two made a striking blonde couple. And luckily, they had more chemistry on the set of the photoshoot than here, where the Borzoi appears to be heavily side-eyeing.
Mickey Rourke’s Life Saver
Actor Mickey Rourke has spoken very highly about the role his dogs have played in his life. During his acceptance speech for receiving his Golden Globe Best Actor award, he said: “I’d like to thank all my dogs. The ones that are here, the ones that aren’t here anymore because sometimes when a man’s alone, that’s all you got is your dog. And they’ve meant the world to me.”
Mickey had even been in a situation where he had lost the will to live. “I didn’t want to be here… I just wanted to push a button and disappear. I think I hadn’t left the house for four or five months, and I was in a bad place… [and] then I looked at my dog, Beau Jack… [he] was looking at me going, ‘Who’s going to take care of me?'” Mickey credit’s his dog for forcing him to make himself healthier, physically and mentally.
The Dogs Come First
Oprah Winfrey’s deep love for her brood of dogs has been under some speculation in the last few years. It came to light that she was leaving $30 million to them in her will, and nothing for her long-time partner for more than 30 years, Stedman Graham. The details of their relationship have long been a mystery and knowledge of her will just increased speculation.
The host of The Oprah Winfrey Show has five dogs in total: Golden Retrievers Luke and Layla, Cocker Spaniel Sadie, and Springer Spaniels Sunny and Lauren. Even her social media profile picture is a photo of her with the beloved pups. Just in case Stedman forgets who the priorities are.
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen look straight out of a magazine shoot in this snap. Pictured sprinting through New York’s East Village, John carries their French Bulldog like a football. And judging from her face, she’s less than amused, unlike her joyful mom and dad.
The power couple are established dog fanatics, owning five at the moment and having even thrown a wedding ceremony for two of them, Pippa and Puddy. And don’t be surprised to see the pooches in vacation snaps on their Instagram accounts, as they usually fly out with the family to holiday destinations.
Fed Better Than Most People
Cinema buffs out there will be all too aware of Alfred Hitchcock’s deep adoration for his Sealyham Terriers and Westies. He even kept adding dog appearances to all his films, although utilizing a larger variety of breeds than in his personal life. His biographer Patrick Mcgilligan even wrote that dogs in his films were “amusing, brave, and intuitive about the distress of their owners.”
This famous photo of Alfred sat with his morning coffee and newspaper alongside his westie bestie went down in history as an iconic image of the mysterious man. While many details about Hitchcock’s life with his dogs are not publicly known. Still. it is understood that he was devoted to them and fed them “better than most people.” He was frequently spotted going to the local butcher to pick up some choice meats for them.
They Need a Second a Chance
Former teen idol and actress Hilary Duff is a real softy when it comes to her pets, she can hardly say no to them jumping on the sofa. You can’t blame her for spoiling them, as she rescued them from euthanasia when they struggled to find people to adopt them. She even prefers to refer to them as her children.
She shared this photo of them curled up on the sofa to promote her auction to help find dogs that were due to be euthanized, a forever home. “I am hosting a special night of cocktails/bites (not by dogs)/doggies/an amazing auction/celebs and all-around good people who care about pups!” she excitedly wrote in September 2019. These days, Hilary sees more benefit in spending her time helping less fortunate animals.
Ellen and Portia’s Handful
It was Ellen DeGeneres’ dream to work with animals when she grew up. She ended up becoming one of the most successful talk-show hosts in America instead, sharing her life with animals in other ways. Here, her wife Portia can be seen dozing off with Ellen’s beloved canine family.
Ellen’s three dogs Wolf, Augie, and Kid, are shared with her wife Portia de Ross. They usually join her for her morning horseback-riding sessions. But their presence is just as felt every night where they share the bed with Ellen and Portia. “It’s more like they let us sleep in bed with them. Portia and I are allowed about one-third of the mattress, and they have the rest,” she admits.
Joan Crawford’s Silent Stalker
Classic Hollywood actress Joan Crawford reads to her miniature pet poodle, Cliquot, in this vintage snap from 1953. Pictured on set, Cliquot was one of the few dogs allowed to come to the studio with his mistress as he was especially quiet. It worked in his favor, as he became her constant companion.
Here, Joan brought Cliquot to the set of The Damned Don’t Cry, but that wasn’t the only film he turned up to. But he wasn’t her only dog. Nonetheless, all that time spent together gave them an extra special connection, making him her lap dog in the truest sense.
Adopt, Don’t Shop
While Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus have officially chosen to part ways, they continue to share their love of rescue dogs. HereLiam is pictured with Dora, a shelter dog he and Miley picked up in 2015 who he calls “awesome. She’s the perfect dog.” She just so happens to be named after the children’s cartoon character Dora the Explorer.
He wants his followers to jump on the “adopt don’t shop” bandwagon, too. I’m a big advocate of pet rescue. Especially in California. If you’re going to get a dog, get a rescue,” he says in earnest, hoping that with enough celebrity publicity and advocacy, people look to rehome those who need it most.
His Love Wasn’t Only for the Ladies
In 1965, Frank Sinatra let a photographer into his home to snap intimate photos of him with his dog, Ringo. He allegedly wasn’t allowed a pooch when he was growing up, so he made up for it in later life by acquiring many. He grew especially close to them when he was sick in bed, having them lie beside him for company.
Frank’s daughter Tina remembers the touching words her father would say when they talked about death and the afterlife. “Heaven is where all the animals go,” he would reply. Pictured at his home in Palm Springs, California, he coos Ringo in a soft, loving manner. It seems the influential singer didn’t just have a soft spot for ladies.
Logic Flies out the Window for the Prince of Darkness
Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne and his wife Sharon have six dogs in total; Bella, Rocky, Alfie, Charlie, Flick, and Moe. They have a reputation for being “dog daft” – in other words, spending unthinkable amounts on them.

He’s so dog-crazy, he allegedly planned to open up a doggie daycare on his
$6.4 million country estate a couple of years ago. Wanting to utilize their sizeable estate, they saw their property as a good opportunity to “create a central facility where dogs will be collected in the morning, spend the day in the countryside, in the safe and secure environment of the field.” As of yet, we are still waiting to hear more details about this passion project.
Best Friend to the Stars
In 2012, this adorable fur-ball was found alone, wandering the street of Connecticut by Animal Control officers. Now, Marnie’s a huge Instagram star. Despite being 18-years-old, she doesn’t show signs of slowing down her celebrity engagements any time soon. Her characteristic tilted head and hanging tongue are caused by her vestibular syndrome, which she suffered from before being rescued.
She was adopted as a senior dog too, at the age of 11. Her owner Shirley Braha took to having her picture taken with celebrities and using her growing social media presence to bring awareness to adopting senior dogs, as well as giving Marnie a chance to dance with the stars. Better late than never!

Audrey is said to have fallen into a spell of depression after Mr. Famous passed away, but luckily the new little man in her life helped to bring her back.
A Goodbye Kiss
For some people, this photo might be a bit too much. But for pup lovers out there, it’s hard not to feel your heart swell. While actor Tom Hardy might appear less than pleased in this snapshot, he was simply caught off guard by Zora the pitbull during the premiere for his movie The Drop.
It’s impressive that Zora wasn’t fazed by the bright lights and numerous cameras, not to mention the noise on the night. But ever the professional showbiz hound, he simply played up for the cameras by smooching his British co-star.

Here, the Hollywood bigshots look over the script for their screwball comedy The Awful Truth in 1937. He was so sought after that he took home a far larger salary than that of his canine counterparts, earning on average around $250 compared with the $3.50 of other dogs in Hollywood.
Martha Stewart as You’ve Never Seen Her
In this image, American actress Jennifer Garner cuddles up to Martha Stewart. Yes – the labrador she’s holds here is named after the television personality and lifestyle expert herself. Jennifer shares a particularly strong bond with Martha, frequently bringing her to the studio set. Interestingly, Jennifer only really uses her full name when she tells her off. “She knew that if I called her Martha Stewart she’d better get off the couch,” the actress reveals.
She explains her unusual name choice: “When I was a young actress starting out and I would have auditions in the morning, I would come back and make myself lunch and watch her first cooking show. Back before she had a talk show or anything like that and it was just in the kitchen with Martha.” It was Jennifer’s positive association and nostalgic feeling towards the TV personality that made her want to name the labrador after her.
He’s Got a Lot to Smile About
Meet Hugh Jackman’s French bulldog Dali, the happy little hound that completes his family. Adopted in 2010, he can’t stop sharing sweet snaps of him and Allegra (his other pup) on social platforms. The corners of his mouth are naturally turned up, giving him a particularly sunny disposition.
While he lives at home with his family in Sydney, Australia, it’s not unusual to spot the pair out together on the streets of New York City. He revealed that his apparent “smile” or upturned moustache (depending on how you view it) is the reason they named him Dali, after the eccentric painter.
Her Dog Brought out Her Anxious Side
Marilyn Monroe has been known to have had her closest friendships and “real best-friends” with the animals in her life. Judging by her ease around them it appears she did have a soft spot for them. “If you talk to a dog or a cat, it doesn’t tell you to shut up,” she famously quipped.
In this photo from 1957, Marilyn is playing around with Hugo, the Bassett hound that stole the heart of Marilyn and her third husband, the playwright Arthur Miller. He lived with them in Amagansett, New York, and shared a deep and protective love for him. As biographer Sam Shaw put it, “She worried about her basset hound, especially by Hugo’s peculiar doggie hazards.”
Thank Goodness for Angels
It’s no secret when it comes to Shay Mitchell being the perfect fur-baby mom. Shay opened up about her doggo and his newfound life when she decided it was time to give a homeless dog a new home. She viewed over 4000 shelter dogs and finally found the ‘one,’ a relaxed, calm and loving dog named Angel.
According to Shay, Angel seems to have costly taste in shoes. Just like her mama, Angel picks out the most expensive pair of shoes on display. The only difference is she chews on them. Other than that, she’s a beautiful addition to the family. The Pretty Little Liars Star mentioned that Angel will be making an appearance on her new docu-series.
He Left His Footprint in Her Heart

Sadly, Chelsea’s fur-baby is no longer with us. On January 19, the one and only Chelsea Handler announced that her beloved baby, Chunk, had passed on. “Chunky Monkey” was loved dearly by Chelsea, who had saved him previously from a kill shelter. Fortunately for Chelsea, she still has two dogs at home to keep her spirits up and give her all the love she could ever need.
Chelsea’s favorite memory with Chunk was when she went paddleboarding upstate on the Hudson River. She was out in the water and saw him trotting along beside her by the shoreline and trees. Eventually, he couldn’t take it anymore. He jumped into the water and swam a quarter of a mile to get on the paddleboard with her. Isn’t that a precious memory to keep with her always?

Integrity is a big thing for him.”
