If you looked in a dictionary for “friendship goals,” you might find an image of Tom Holland and Jake Gyllenhaal. The duo has been an unstoppable force of chaotic energy and laughter ever since they became fast friends on the set of Marvel’s 2019 blockbuster Spider-Man: Far From Home.
The pair starred together in 2019 film Spider-Man: Far From Home, striking up a close bond in the process.
Throughout the film’s press tour, videos of the two interacting with one another routinely went viral. Now, Gyllenhaal has rekindled fan interest in their friendship with a birthpay message he sent to the Peter Parker actor, who turned 25 on Tuesday (1 June)
The actor, who played the villainous Mysterio, shared a behind-the-scenes photo of the pair in between filming a fight scene, captioning it: “I miss ussss.”
The duo’s back-and-forth birthday interactions have slowly become a standing tradition between the best friends. It’s a tradition that was technically started by Holland; his first birthday wish to Gyllenhaal dates back to December 2019.
But that doesn’t mean that birthdays are the one day out of the year the friends can post about each other. On the contrary, this bromance is open to any and all holidays, like Valentine’s Day
At one point during the photo shoot, Holland inched closer and closer to Gyllenhaal’s face as they gazed into each other’s eyes and almost touched lips — before they both broke
The moral of the story? Find someone who looks at you the way Spider-Man looks at Jake Gyllenhaal … or is it find someone who looks at you the way Jake Gyllenhaal looks at Tom Holland? Either way, it’s guaranteed to be the kind of wholesome celebrity friendship that we all love to see.
