Kim Kardashian, Kanye West As 'Star Wars' Characters In 2008 (PHOTO)

Kim Kardashian is always going on about how her longtime friendship with Kanye West is the reason their relationship works.

The reality star and the rapper were friends for a decade before they took things to the next level this past April, and now Kim has been digging through their past to share evidence of their friendship with her Twitter followers.

On Thursday, the 32-year-old posted a photo from back in 2008 of the pair dressed as "Star Wars" characters. In the photo, Kim is dressed as Princess Leia, while Kanye is dressed as a Stormtrooper.

"Throwback Thursday me & Yeezy 2008," she tweeted along with the photo.

Just why were the then-pals dressed up? The photo was taken on set of a skit filmed for a pilot that didn't get picked up Comedy Central back in the day.
