Jennette McCurdy and Ariana Grande play best friends on their hit Nickelodeon show Sam & Cat, but they’re just as close off the set, too. In a recent interview with E! News, Jennette talked about how she and her BFF “share everything,” especially when it comes to advice on their love lives.
“We share everything. We always go through, like, boy situations at the same time, so we both had new kind of romances over our break, so we’ve just been kind of catching up on those,” Jennette said.
The former iCarly star explains that they try to keep their work and personal lives separate. “We keep each other on track, we don’t really talk much about work stuff, because I feel like we talk about that so much with other people that we like to keep it to family, and just personal stuff,” she said. “It’s all completely personal, what we’ve done with our friends lately, where we’re going, what we’re getting into, clothes.”
The 21-year-old says she looks up to Ariana and admires her determination. “She’s extremely strong-willed and she will do whatever it takes to get what she wants if she really believes in something,” Jennette continued.
“I think that’s such an admirable quality to have and I look up to her for that. And I think that’s something, working with her now for a year and a half, that hopefully I’ve adopted a bit of and I hope to get more of it as time goes on.”
