In Hollywood, some pretty steamy onscreen relationships have led to rumors swirling that the actors dated in real life. But, more often than not, these stars are just friends when the cameras stop rolling.
Fans have “shipped” stars like Milo Manheim and Meg Donnelly after their roles in ZOMBIES, Mitchell Hope and Dove Cameron from the Descendants series, Ashley Benson and Tyler Blackburn after #Haleb made waves in Pretty Little Liars, Millie Bobby Brown and Finn Wolfhard for their romance in Stranger Things and more. As it turns out, nothing romantic ever went on between these BFF duos.
After the first To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before movie hit Netflix in 2018, fans hoped for Lana Condor and Noah Centineo to date in real life, but it never happened. In fact, the actress has spoken about the fan reaction to her onscreen love with the heartthrob.
“I think we both know that [the movie is] special, and I’m just happy that it’s him that I’m going through all this with,” she told POPSUGAR in September 2018. “We make a really, really good team. It’s been crazy. People truly want us to get married.”
Lana and Noah’s close bond was reflected once more when To All The Boys: Always and Forever premiered in February 2021. Following the final film, the actors spoke about playing Lara Jean and Peter K for the last time.
“I kind of just avoided him throughout the day,” Lana recalled to Entertainment Tonight in February 2021 about her last scene with Noah, who wrapped before she did. “I didn’t want to look at him. I didn’t want to talk to him. I was like, ‘No, this isn’t happening,’ and that was pretty rough. I just feel very grateful for everyone on the cast and I feel very grateful that I got to work with Noah because I think our relationship really stood the test of time in these movies. I really enjoy him as a scene partner and as a person, so saying goodbye to him knowing that we were going to keep going, but that was his last day, really, really sucked.”
