During an appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show, the young star explained: "We were always able to kind of connect with each other."

However, she maintained: "It's so platonic, which is so beautiful," and Drew quickly resonated with their friendship, referring to hers with frequent co-star Adam Sandler, stating: "Same with me and Sandler. Never dated, never kissed…"

Still, Millie admitted that her boyfriend caught on to just how well she gets along with her co-star, and made quite the bold statement about it.

There's no doubt the two co-stars have a blast together

"Jake, who is my boyfriend, when we first met he was like, 'You guys are in love,'" but still the Enola Holmes lead insisted: "But it's in the most platonic way."
