Teyonah Parris (Survivor’s Remorse, Love Under New Management) and Corey Hawkins (Straight Outta Compton, 24 Legacy) are two of Hollywood’s most promising and brightest new stars. They’re also self-proclaimed best friends. So what do you do when your bestie scores his first Tony nomination? You surprise him with balloons, a happy dance and an even bigger smile.
Hawkins earned the coveted Best Leading Actor In A Play nod for his role in Six Degrees of Separation. Parris and another friend surprised the 28-year-old with balloons after he wrapped the hit Broadway show this week.
While we know the two are only friends and refer to each other as brother and sister, we can’t help but wonder if, in this case, best friends would truly make the best lovers. Only will time will tell if the two Juilliard classmates will ever cross that line, but until then, check out a few cutesy moments of the two over the years.
TELL US: Can friends be better lovers or are you against mixing the two?
