Millie Bobby Brown, 18, and her Stranger Things co-star Noah Schnapp, 18, have such a close friendship that even her boyfriend Jake Bongiovi, 20, noticed it right away. The actress recently revealed the son of Jon Bon Jovi knew she and the actor were “in love” the first time he saw them together, but it’s all “platonic.” She sat down with Drew Barrymore on The Drew Barrymore Show when she gushed over both guys.
“Jake, by the way who is my boyfriend, when we first met, Jake was like, ‘You guys are in love,'” she told Drew in the interview. “But it’s in the most platonic way.”
Millie and Noah grew up together while working on Stranger Things, which they both started in 2016, so it’ not too surprising that they have built a connection that hasn’t wavered. “We were always able to kind of connect with each other,” she added about her and Noah’s friendship. “And it’s so platonic, which is so beautiful.”
This isn’t the first time Millie mentioned her bond with Noah in an interview. She and the fellow teen revealed they made a pact to get married to each other if they hadn’t found someone by the time they’re 40-years-old, in an interview with MTV News. “We said if we’re not married by 40, we’ll get married together. Because we’d be good roomies,” Millie said before Noah agreed by saying, “We would.”
“No kids, though, cause I could not deal with a child of yours,” Millie added. “That’s my dealbreaker. No kids,” Noah responded.
In addition to discussing her friendship with Noah and her relationship with Jake, whom she started dating in 2021, Millie talked about her turn offs when it comes to dating. “Men with umbrellas. It’s also an ick but a super red flag. Don’t hold an umbrella, I can hold my own,” she said.
Millie and Noah are set to appear in the fifth and final season of Stranger Things, which just started production. You can check out Millie’s full interview with Drew above.
