If we’re being honest here – ever since To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before came out, there is literally nothing we do more these days other than obsess over it. Who could blame us? A story about a girl whose love letters get leaked out into the world, wreaking havoc on her life? Can’t really ask for anything more in a movie, really. Now, one particular detail about the film that we just learned though is blowing our minds. In the Netflix teen rom-com, Lara Jean Covey and her bae Peter Kavinsky start “fake dating” to get back at Peter’s ex and cover up the fact that Lara Jean might have a crush on her sister’s ex. Can you say drama?
Naturally, Lara Jean and Peter set their lock screen backgrounds on their phones to photos of one another. And Lara Jean’s is a picture of them snuggled up together while taking a nap. Turns out, the picture is actually a real-life photo of leading stars Noah Centineo and Lana Condor taking a nap on set. So yeah, shippers are legit losing their minds. Now join us in swooning over a close-up shot of the phone background:

They even recreated it, making our hearts flutter all over again.
Director Susan Johnson spilled in an interview with ET Online, “That was actually one of our crew members who took that photo. The two of them were in the green room on set at the high school location, in the area where we put the actors. They actually were sleeping on the couch in that room like that, so we just stood over them and took that picture and it’s so friggin’ cute. So yeah, we just borrowed it from our crew member. (Laughs.) There wasn’t [a scene]. I could make something up but I actually think it’s cute that they hang out like that.”
Fans took to Twitter to express just how much this behind-the-scenes tidbit wrecks their hearts.
“so i just found out that lara jeans lock screen photo was actually taken by a crew member BECAUSE NOAH AND LANA WERE ACTUALLY SLEEPING LIKE THAT TOGETHER ON SET, IF THATS NOT THE CUTEST THING I HAVE EVER HEARD IDK WHAT IS,” one fan gushed.

Now, don’t get too excited though. Actress Lana Condor is actually dating actor Anthony De La Torre, not Noah. And Anthony even writes her love letters, like Peter does in the movie. Too. Cute.
It’s safe to say we stan a power couple (even though they’re not dating IRL).
