If you’re itching for more details on that lock-screen photo of To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, which director Susan Johnson revealed was actually an unscripted moment between the two lead actors, read on.
When asked by ET to explain how they could fall asleep like that, Noah Centineo dished: “Because we love each other! Duh!” Oh so casually, he further explained, “I was just laying there because I sleep a lot. If I’ve got five minutes, I’m out. And I think one of those times, Lana was just like, ‘I’m going to sleep with you!’ And I was like, ‘Alright cool,’ and she cuddled in.”
The actor also elaborated on his on- and off-screen chemistry with Lana Condor. Responding to the director’s observation that he is “a natural flirt” he said, “I think that that goes both ways for both of us. It’s not just like I’m the flirt and she’s the romantic and she’s the flirt and I’m the romantic. It’s all of it.” He added, “I would say it’s a little bit to do with how amazing of an actress she is—hat’s a really big part of it—and it’s really easy to react and listen to her when she’s ‘acting’ because she’s so natural. Another part of it is we just have similar perspectives on life. Our outlooks are similar and we just really like to talk and communicate. We got to know each other really well, so that made it really easy.”
Lana has equally nice things to say about her on-screen partner: “I’m honored to be on this journey with him and watch as he’s growing and blowing up. He deserves all the recognition that he’s getting and I think he’s handling it really, really well. He deserves it,” she continued. “Noah’s been acting forever. He’s been in the game way longer than I have, so he’s put in the work and he deserves everything that’s coming his way.”
While their chemistry is off-the-charts, the two remain platonic. When asked if he would ever make a marriage pact with Lana, Noah replied no, because “She’s boo’d up,” referring to Lana’s boyfriend, actor Anthony de la Torre.
If you’re heartbroken by that news, don’t be. Their friendship is still something to root for. Here’s a clip of the two being sweet to make your day.
