Are Ayo Edebiri and Jeremy Allen White Dating?

What Has Ayo Edebiri and Jeremy Allen White Said About The Rumors?

While the two probably aren’t romantically together, they have talked about their “intimate” friendship countless times!

“Work can be a very intimate thing and a very personal thing and a very emotional thing,” Ayo told Vanity Fair in May 2024, explaining why her and Jeremy’s connection plays so well on screen.

“And I think when you’re also in industries that are creative or creative adjacent, I think there’s something that also invokes feelings of passion.”

That’s not all she had to say about her costar! Ayo added, “Also, boy’s got some beautiful blue eyes. You know what I mean? Those are eyes you want to project onto.”

For his part, Jeremy had similar praise for his costar. “We really enjoy each other in life, on-camera and off-camera,” he explained.

“I have a tremendous amount of respect for her as a person, but also as an artist. And so I hope that sort of that kind of thing shines through on camera between Carm and Syd.”

Earlier this year, Ayo further maintained their friendship status when she was asked about Jeremy’s Calvin Klein ad campaign.

To which she replied to Access Hollywood, “I’m happy for him. That’s my boy. I do feel like I want people to understand that he’s my co-worker!”
