Yesterday was the first full day since To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before dropped that neither Lainey nor I mentioned the movie and/or Peter Kavinsky on this site. We are sorry. We’ve seen your feedback and the withdrawal is real. We are your Peter Kavinsky Problem support group and we failed you yesterday. Our days, however, were still TATBILB heavy because I made my 66-year-old mother watch it and Lainey’s Netflix algorithm led her to a sh-tty Noah Centineo movie that she watched while live-texting Duana and me.
I watched the same movie the day before. Netflix knows us so well. The movie is called SPF-18 and it’s HORRIBLE. I’m serious. Don’t watch it. Not even shirtless Peter Kavinsky can’t make up for how bad SPF-18 is. You have been warned.
If you need your daily dose of Noah Centineo and, just as importantly, Lana Condor, I’ve got you covered. In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Lana Condor called us all out for our collective crush on Peter Kavinsky.
“Oh yeah! 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.”
First of all, I feel personally attacked. Second, what PK things are people ordering on Amazon? I want them all.
Lana goes on to call her chemistry with Noah “genuine” and says that she is so happy they are on this “journey” together. She basically spends half of her interview gushing about Noah Centineo. She’s trolling us again.
“… 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.”
I mean, I want them to live their lives and date other people until their thirties and THEN get married. It’s not that unreasonable. While Lana is making us squeal over her relationship with Noah in interviews, he’s about to start promoting a movie where he falls in love with someone else. Sierra Burgess Is a Loser is coming. We’re still obsessing over Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsky but Netflix wants us to move on to Sierra and Jamey. I’m already jealous on behalf of Lara Jean AND Lana Condor.
Here’s how Noah described his connection to his Sierra Burgess Is a Loser costar Shannon Purser (Barb from Stranger Things), which developed as their characters talked on the phone:
“We were both on other ends of the phone, and I was just in a different room. And it wasn't even acting. You're sitting there talking and it's like, someone you have a true connection with. She's just so available to that and open to that and I feel blessed to work with her. She's just this real person. She's present, she's with you when you're with her.”
Cute, right? Not as flirty as “Lana Condor is the love of my life” but enough to make me intrigued by how his on-screen chemistry with Shannon Purser will hold up. I am very excited for Sierra Burgess Is a Loser because, clearly, I’ll watch Noah in everything (I am serious, DO NOT WATCH SPF-18) but I also may need to watch TATBILB again right after to keep the Lara Jean/ Peter Kavinsky dream alive.
Finally, for the Lana/Noah shippers, please watch this sequence of videos of the two of them working out together. Lainey and I occasionally take boxing classes together. This sh-t is HARD. It’s also a good bonding experience. You really get to know someone when you both feel like your limbs are going to fall off and you’re going to puke on your hand wraps.
That last caption? I am dead. You are welcome.
