Since starring in Netflix’s To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, fans have wondered if Lana Condor and Noah Centineo dating. The truth is they’re not, but they do have a super cute friendship that rivals Lara Jean and Peter’s.

It’s no secret that Centineo and Condor have amazing chemistry, which is how viewers fell in love with their characters. With the success of TATBILB and its sequels, it’s understandable why fans would be interested in Centineo and Condor’s dating lives—and if they’ve ever had feelings for each other. In an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in 2019, Condor revealed that she and Centineo made a no-dating pact when they filmed the first TATB movie.

“I did [set early boundaries with Noah,]” she said “We had just come back from a hot yoga class and went to his apartment, and we ordered pizza, and it’s kind of like, ooh, hot yoga, pizza, what’s happening? It was right before we shot the movie, just getting to know each other. And I felt something. And then so we went like this, and I looked at him and I went, ‘Noah, it’s not going to happen between us.’ Yeah, because I felt, for the show to do well, we had to be best-friend professionals.”

She continued, “And so I was like, ‘it’s just not going to happen.’ And he was like, ‘Yeah, it’s not going to happen.’ And I was like, ‘Great!’ So we kind of did what we did in To All the Boys the movie, we kind of made a contract and set boundaries and then I’m so happy that we did that because the movie turned out great and now we’re doing a sequel. So I have to work with him again so imagine!”

Condor, for her part, is now in a relationship with musician Anthony De La Torre, while Centineo has had several public romances too. Though the Lana Condor and Noah Centineo aren’t dating, they still have had many cute moments over the years to fan over. Relive their best BFF moments in honor of the TATB trilogy.

When Lana Turned Down Noah at Their Audition

In an interview with MTV News, Condor talked about how she turned down Centineo at one of their first auditions. Both actors found themselves waiting to audition when Centineo sat down next to Condor and asked if she wanted to read lines with him. “I look up and I see this gorgeous, tall, beautiful man that is Noah walk through the door, and I was like, ‘Not today!’ And I kept reading,” Condor said. The actress turned him down, but the two met again when Condor was cast for the role was doing chemistry reads with possible Peter Kavinskys. From that point on, their friendship bloomed and here we are today. “To this day, I think he’s the greatest guy ever, so it was not hard being his costar at all. I have a crush on him. I like to think he has a crush on me, but, you know, whatever,” she said.

When Noah Called Lana the “Love of My Life”

After his appearance at VidCon 2018, Centineo took to his Instagram story to thank AwesomenessTV (the production company behind TATBILB), Netflix and the movie’s fans for the opportunity and success. He also snuck in a compliment for Condor. “Lana Condor, you are the love of my life. You did, we did, you did, we did, all of us,” Centineo said.

When Noah Said He Could Watch Lana “All Day”

In an interview for Netflix promoting TATBILB, Centineo waxed poetic about Condor’s acting, both dramatically and comedically. Specifically, he talked about his love for her “isms” and “facial expressions,” which he said he could watch “all day.” “Lana Condor, god damn! I don’t know what we can say,” Centineo said.

When Lana and Noah Flirted on Instagram

It’s hard not to ship Condor and Centineo when they do stuff like this. In August, Centineo posted an Instagram of him and Condor, with the caption, “Aren’t we adorable?” Condor commented back, “Yes. Lemme get them digits, ya feel me?” Of course, had to respond with this comment, putting fans into overdrive: “I’m floored. You have me. It’s over.”

When They Looked at Each Other Like This 

In an interview promoting TATBILB, Condor and Centineo looked at each other with dreamy eyes for a hot second, and it melted the entire internet. Of course, the moment was captured by fans.

When Lana Called Noah a “Nugget”

A year before TATBILB came out, Condor instagrammed this picture of Centineo resting on her lap and her playing with his hair. In the caption, Condor called Centineo a “nugget” and asked fans “who couldn’t love that face?”

When Fans Found Out That That Cuddling Photo Was Real

TATBILB fans might remember a sweet picture of Lara Jean and Peter cuddling on the characters’ lock screens. Turns out, the picture was a real candid of Condor and Centineo cuddling on a break. “He was napping, and he took over the couch. And I was like, well I want to nap too. And there was only one couch,” Condor told People. “We’ve had chemistry since day one and we were just connecting and that just felt really natural to us.”

She added, “I mean, it was a great cuddle.”

When Noah Said He Wants to ‘Propose’ to Lana

Wait, what? In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Centineo teased fans when he joked that he might “propose” to Condor because of how much fans ship them. The actor was asked about how there are just as many fans that ship the two actors as there are that ship their characters. “It’s all the same to me! I’m not upset about it,” he said. “I may propose to Lana later this year, who knows? You heard it on Cosmo fucking first.”

When Noah Said Lana ‘Melts My Heart’

A couple weeks after TATBILB‘s debut, Centineo teased fans again by instagramming a picture of him and Condor from their Teen Vogue photoshoot. The picture featured Centineo’s arms around Condor, as she looked back at him. “She melts my heart,” he captioned the picture.

When Lana Avoided Noah on the Last Day of Filming

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight in 2021, Condor revealed that she avoided Centineo on the last day of filming for the final TATB movie, To All the Boys: Always and Forever, because it was too emotional to say goodbye to him.

“I kind of just avoided him throughout the day,” she said. “Like, 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.”

To All the Boys: Always and Forever is available to stream on Netflix. Jenny Han’s To All the Boys books are available on Amazon.
