Lana Condor and Noah Centineo made a no-dating pact

Condor said her 22-year-old co-star mimicked her sentiments.

"And it was kind of like, 'Oh, hot yoga, pizza, what's happening?'" she told Jimmy Fallon on Thursday's "Tonight Show" episode. "And I felt something!"

The pair agreed to be professional about the whole thing, or as she coined it "best friend professionals".

Condor reasoned that for To All the Boys I've Loved Before to succeed, she and Centineo needed to be simply professionals, which meant no IRL dating, despite their obvious chemistry. "And so I was like, 'It's just not going to happen.' He's just like, 'Yeah, it's not going to happen.' And I was like, 'Great'".

Centineo is set to play "an enterprising young man who, to make money for college, creates a dating app and stands in for non-existent boyfriends", according to Netflix's description.

She continued: "And so I was like, 'It's just not gonna happen.' And he was like, 'Yeah it's not gonna happen.' And I was like, 'Great.' So we kind of did what we did in To All the Boys movie". Fallon and Condor tackle the fact that because they are a jock and a cheerleader, they also have other interests; it's a cheesy "Don't judge a book by it's cover" analogy. "We still have the spark, yeah, absolutely", Condor said".

"We were just on the phone the other day, just talking about the sequel", she said. Because she values her career over her personal life, and yes, you read that right.

We all might really want Lana Condor and Noah Centineo to end up together, however, it's just not in the cards. Here, Condor is pictured attending The Hollywood Reporter TV Talks presented by 92nd Street Y on January 9, 2019, in New York City.
