When you star in one of the most binge-watched Netflix shows of the year, it's a no-brainer that fans want to know who you're dating (or if you're dating anyone at all). Even if you're only 15. But Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard is playing super coy when it comes to his relationship status, despite a massive shipping movement from fans calling for him to date his on-screen star Millie Bobby Brown — who plays Eleven to his Mike Wheeler.
"Yeah, that's crazy," Finn told TMZ when asked if he knew he was Millie Bobby Brown's first kiss. "And I had my first kiss — I don't think it counted — but I had my first kiss when I was in kindergarten when I didn't know what it meant."
"Yeah, a little bit," he said when asked if Millie was kind of like his first kiss, too. "It was good. It was a good experience. Everyone was supportive. It wasn't too crazy. It was fine. It was just a job. It was like, three takes. It was totally fine at the end."

But though Finn is totally fine talking about his on-screen kiss with Millie, opening up about his personal love life isn't something he's interested in. In fact, whenever he's asked about who he's dating, Finn tends to play it off with a joke. "I do not have a girlfriend," he tweeted in 2016. "I'm only a baby boy!"

Minutes later, he came back on Twitter to amend his statement with a plug to his most recent project, the horror movie IT. "Jk this is my GF (sic)," he wrote and attached a photo of the titular clown from the film.

Hardcore Stranger Things fans, of course, ship his fictional relationship with Millie, 13. Millie, too, has talked about her kissing experience with Finn, stating that though Finn claims she wasn't his first smooch, she thinks otherwise.
"He says I wasn't [his first kiss], but I definitely think I was," she told People. "I think he was just trying to be cool."
"It was a strange experience," Millie continued. "Having 250 people looking at you kissing someone is like, 'Whoa!'" she added.
Looks like Millie and Finn aren't interested in each other romantically and for the time being, their relationship is strictly platonic and professional. They're simply good friends.
