Lana Condor Says ‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’ Fans Attacked Her Real Boyfriend Online
It didn’t take long for a strong fandom to form around To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. The fans then followed stars, Lana Condor and Noah Centineo closely when it comes to their real lives. Find out what Condor had to say about the negative affects of fame and more.
Lana Condor and Noah Centineo previously encouraged dating rumors
Many fans loved Peter and Lara Jean so much that they really wanted the actors to be a couple. There was a time when they encouraged the dating rumors even though they were just friends.
“Noah and I definitely encouraged the speculation,” Condor admitted to Cosmopolitan. “But it’s because we believe in the story and the characters and we genuinely love each other. You can truly love someone in a very platonic way.”
She went on to talk about how her fans weren’t happy to find out she was dating Anthony De la Torre. “It was so hurtful for both of us,” she said. “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?”
The actors said goodbye to their roles
The actors are done playing the beloved characters. They posted their goodbyes to them on social media.
“Tonight was my last night as Peter Kavinsky. I hope you all love these last installments as much as we do. Forever grateful for the opportunity to be yours Thank you Lana, thank you Michael, Thank you Matt, Thank you Netflix, grateful to every person who told this story with us,” he tweeted.
Condor also posted a picture of herself being in Lara Jean’s room. She wrote in the caption, “It’s been 16 days since the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before franchise wrapped shooting movies 2 & 3. I’ve been really struggling how to put into words my feelings towards this ending… words will never be able to describe my love for Lara Jean. Her family, her friends, Peter.”
It continued, “Words will never be able to describe the long nights on set, where it would suddenly hit me, like a ton of bricks, that I was getting the honor of portraying a girl so fiercely determined in love, who represents strength in softness.”
However, it’s not all over yet. Two movies have yet to be released and that means the stars are still talking about what it’s been like to play the characters.
She said fans attacked her real boyfriend online
There is a downside to having fans deeply invested in your work. Condor talked about that in a recent interview with Teen Vogue.
“I love Noah with all my heart, but the switch was when people started attacking Anthony online,” she said. “That was when I realized as much as I can show my love and my friendship to Noah… I can’t be that private with Anthony, because people are starting to be really hurtful to him.”
She continued, “He’s been by my side through everything. He’s such an amazing person and has been an integral part of me staying literally sane.”
The actresses added that her co-stars have hung out with the real man in her life. “It was so funny because Noah and Jordan [Fisher] met Anthony both at the same time,” she said. “They came over to my house. It was so cute.” Condor later added it felt “Like my three boyfriends all meeting each other.”
Fans will soon get to see what Fisher’s character, John Ambrose McClaren will bring to the table in To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You. The movie will be available on Netflix on Feb. 12.
