If you’ve watched To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, then there’s about a 99.9% chance you totally fell for Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsky’s love story – and are now on the hunt for your own Peter. He’s easily one of the top fictional boyfriends of all time, and the world has since fallen in love with the actor who pays him too, Noah Centineo. Noah is a total gem IRL, and his co-star Lana Condor completely understands why we’re all obsessed with him.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Lana explained how she knew everyone would be obsessed with Noah – and she gets it. She has said she has a crush on him too, like the rest of us! (But she has a super cute boyfriend, so don’t get too excited.) So yeah – Lana knows people of the Internet are thirsty AF for Noah, and she’s all about it.
“I’ve read that he is the Internet’s boyfriend. People are ordering Peter Kavinskys on Amazon. Just the thirst for Noah is just… It’s a desert out there and everyone’s so thirsty for him, and I love it,” Lana said. “I’m not surprised. The moment I met him, I was like, ‘Yup, that boy’s gonna be a star,'” she said. “We all knew as we were shooting the movie that he was just going to break literally 15 million hearts. So I’m not surprised at all. Of course, I want to protect him but I don’t really have anything to protect him against because it’s all love. People just genuinely, are thoroughly are in love with him.”
OK, can we talk about the fact that Lana feels protective of Noah? How adorable is that? Their friendship is just goals all around. Lana went on to say that she’s really just happy people have connected with the story she and Noah got to tell – and she can’t imagine doing it with anyone else. She is super aware of the fact that they have this undeniable chemistry, and that’s part of what makes Lara Jean and Peter’s connection so strong on-screen.
“You hope that people will fall in love with your characters and I think they have. It’s been great because I know both Noah and I feel the same way, in the fact that I’m so happy that Noah is on this journey with me and it’s Noah who I have as my partner through all of this because our chemistry is genuine,” Lana said. “Like, it has been since Day 1 and I’ve never felt chemistry like this ever before with any other actor that I’ve worked with. I think we both know that it’s special and I’m just happy that it’s him that I’m going through all this with. We make a really, really good team. It’s been crazy. People truly want us to get married.”
Umm yeah, we can’t deny that fact. Everyone is shipping them! But hey, knowing that Lana and Noah’s bond will last forever is enough to warm fans’ hearts up. They’re always speaking so highly of each other – and as Lana explained, she really is nothing but proud of all the success her on-screen bae is having.
“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,” Lana said
Is somebody cutting onions in here? We’re sobbing over these two…
