Fans were super surprised when Nina Dobrev revealed that she used to clash with The Vampire Diaries co-star and BFF Paul Wesley. The two have remained super close since Nina left the show after season 6 and even after the the show ended 2 seasons later. However, Paul says that they really didn't get along during the earlier seasons.
"I think the point that Nina was making, and I’ll totally back her up on this, is that we totally clashed [the] first couple years in terms of just getting on each other’s nerves, and then developed this wonderful friendship," he said at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, according to Us Weekly. "So it’s like this nice, happy ending."
Paul says that while things were super bumpy between them at first, things got better are the worked together more and more.
"I think sometimes when people work together nonstop, do press nonstop for years and years on end, you’re just — you don’t appreciate the person that’s in front of you. You’re like, 'Oh, you know, I’m exhausted and tired.' And I think now, it’s such a nice sort of story because we’re such good friends now," he continued. "I think it was a cool lesson to learn. It’s like the people that kind of maybe you don’t get along with in the beginning later surprise you, and I think a lot of my friendships are like that."
He even revealed that they text each other once a week and often hang out with each other. Paul also mentioned that their age difference might have had something to do with their friendship not working out at first.
"We were both kids. She was, you know, couldn’t even legally drink. I was, like, 24 or 25. … We were both on this big show. … It’s like high school. It’s kind of like being at summer camp."
