‘Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants’ Is Still a Good Fit, 12 Years Later

It’s hard to believe 12 years have passed since Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants hit the big screen and simultaneously created the Blake Lively/America Ferrera/Amber Tamblyn/Alexis Bledel girlfriend group of our dreams.

Over the past decade, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants stars have appeared alongside one another as businesswomen and more recently as mothers but always as the best of friends. For this #ThrowbackThursday, let’s take a closer look at their bond to see exactly what it takes to maintain years of squad goals.

They have grown up together.

They’re my girls, three of my best friends to this day,” America Ferrera told Us Weekly in 2015. “I was 20 when I met them, I am 30 now, and they are still three of my best friends and supporters. Why I love that movie so much was at that time there wasn’t a lot of sisterhood and stories of young girls being supportive of each other.”

They can be silly together without judgment.

“I remember specifically taking Alexis and forcing her to come to this club with me in Vancouver,” Amber Tamblyn told Entertainment Weekly in 2013. “I think I made her take shots. I made her enter a break-dancing competition. Not even a joke. And she did it! It was the cutest thing ever; she was like a tiny turtle that was upside down in her shell and she was spinning around. I was like, ‘Oh my God, I love you. I love you, you’re amazing.’ She won a T-shirt.”

They make time for one another.

This flight and trip was a very special and sacred day for me. I love this photo so much,” Amber Tamblyn posted on Instagram. “Surround yourself with good women in your life. It means everything. Love my sisters.”

They show up for one another’s big life events.

“We’ve been a part of each other’s lives in really meaningful ways that go beyond making a movie together,” America Ferrera told Entertainment Weekly in 2013. “We almost forget that we made a movie together because our friendship was created from so many other experiences. The fact that our friendship started in this beautiful film that was so meaningful to all of us and to our lives and our careers and to our friendship, we are always so grateful for it.”

They help one another dress for success.

“She didn’t have a steamer, so I told her just to turn on the shower for 20 minutes and lock her shirt in the bathroom,” Blake Lively told Vogue in May, describing the styling trick she offered Amber Tamblyn before the red carpet premiere of Paint It Black, Tamblyn’s directorial debut.

They understand the importance of maintaining friendships.

“We definitely love each other a lot and we don’t get to see each other enough,” Amber Tamblyn revealed to Marie Claire in May. “But I think that as we all start to have kids, it’s now gonna happen more than ever, because we have to get our kids together.”

They celebrate one another for their strength as women.

Sister for life. For real. Forever,” Amber Tamblyn wrote on Instagram after joining America Ferrera at the Women’s March in Washington, D.C.

They don’t compete with one another.

“What’s wonderful about these girls in my life is, people expect girls and women to be competitive, and we made a decision to love and support each other offscreen and onscreen,” America Ferrera told Us Weekly.

They support each other’s careers.

Can you see my heart bursting out of my body? I love being with my sisters especially when it’s to celebrate the badassery of the pants. @amberrosetamblyn directed her stunning first film, Paint It Black. … The Sisterhood came out last night to celebrate her enormous talents. We are beyond proud and glowing for her.” America Ferrera wrote on Instagram.

They also want to see a third ‘Traveling Pants’ movie.

There’s a strong chance there might be a third,” Blake Lively told People magazine last summer. “The four of us are still best friends. To be able to create something together again has always been a dream of ours.” It’s our dream too, Blake.
