Netflix thirstily dropped To All the Boys I've Loved Before 3 into our laps on Valentine's Day weekend (February 12, to be exact), which is great news for those of us who are in an imaginary thrupple with Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsky. But just to clear up any potential confusion: no, Lana Condor and Noah Centineo are definitely not dating in real life. Noah is currently in a relationship with Kylie's best friend Stassie, and we're here today to talk about Lana's sweet 'ship with Anthony De La Torre. Ready? KAY!
They've been dating for...ever.
Specifically, for over five years—which, as anyone who followed Bachelorette stars Clare Crawley and Dale Moss' relationship knows, is pretty much a lifetime for people in the spotlight.
Psst: Lana actually told Cosmo all about how she and Anthony met during an Emmys party. His pickup line? "Hi, I'm Anthony. I thought I would make a friend."
He's a musician.
See? Here he is soulfully holding a guitar:
In fact, Anthony and Lana recorded a song together and made a YouTube video, the cuteness level of which will make you forget Peter Kavinsky ever existed.
But he's also an actor.
Here he is as a young Jack Sparrow in Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.
(He's also been in other things, but this is clearly the most important.)
He had a hard time with those Lana and Noah rumors.
Lana's amazing chemistry with Noah is obviously a big reason TATBILB was so successful—but people assuming that they were dating IRL was hard for Anthony. Especially when fans started trolling him. Here's what Lana told Cosmo:
"It was so hurtful for both of us. This is supposed to be a good thing. Why are you coming for someone who has no part of this story? If you say you support me, why would you hurt someone I love?"
But things have gotten better, with Lana saying, "People are starting to understand that you're not necessarily the person you play onscreen."
He's totally in love with Lana.
Honestly, the vibes on social media speak for themselves:
Please watch this if you A. want to find out who initiated their first kiss, and B. want to find out who said I love you first:
Also, I may or may not be having a breakdown over this:
Me pretending to be asleep for the cuddles... ????? No Way - Anthony de la Torre & Lana Condor
When your girlfriend asks you questions about things you know nothing about ????? original sound - Anthony De La Torre
In conclusion: FIND SOMEONE WHO LOVES YOU EVEN WHEN YOU'RE DRUNK ON TEQUILA CUTTING YOUR OWN BANGS.
