That's not a picture of Peter and Lara Jean, it's a picture of Noah Centineo and Lana Condor.

It's been a whole week and not a day has gone by where we haven't discovered something new about Netflix's To All The Boys I've Loved Before. Yesterday, it was the fact that Noah Centineo improvised some of Peter Kavinksy's most iconic moments and today, it's the heart-melting story behind Lara Jean Covey's iPhone lock screen.

Yes, friends, there is an adorable story behind the photo used as Lara Jean's lock screen and honest to god, it will destroy you emotionally and physically.

We briefly get a glimpse of Lara Jean's lock screen when Margot manages to successfully get the hot tub video of her and Peter taken off Instagram but the scene in which the photo is taken, never actually appears in the film. Many fans thought it was a scene that ended up getting cut but now, thanks to director Susan Johnson, we know the real story behind the photo.

Turns out, that scene wasn't in the film because it wasn't a scene in the film. It was actually just a photo of Noah Centineo and Lana Condor napping together in between takes.


Speaking to ETOnline, Johnson explained the story behind how that photo came to be Lara Jean's lock screen:

"I can tell you. I don’t think this will blow any magic in telling you what happened with that," said Johnson. "That was actually one of our crew members who took that photo. The two of them were in the green room on set at the high school location, in the area where we put the actors.

They actually were sleeping on the couch in that room like that, so we just stood over them and took that picture and it’s so friggin’ cute. So yeah, we just borrowed it from our crew member. (Laughs.) There wasn’t [a scene]. I could make something up but I actually think it’s cute that they hang out like that."



If you didn't know, Lana and Noah share the purest off-screen friendship. The pair often drop cute comments on each other's Instagram posts and even the story of what happened the first time they met is cute AF.

But that lil' phone screen easter egg? The cutest yet.
