Ariana Grande and Jennette McCurdy are total BFFs these days. And that's great practice for their roles as best friend babysitters on Sam and Cat! But were these gals pals from the very start? In an interview with Just Jared Jr., they talked about their impressions of each other the first time they met on set!
So what was Ariana's very first thought about Jennette? "'Wow, she's the coolest,'" Ariana said. And Jennette felt the same. "I thought Ariana was so fun and so friendly to people," Jennette gushed. "It was at a promo shoot and Nathan [Kress] and I were hanging out, and she came right over, gave us hugs, and was like, 'Hi! I watch iCarly.' I told her I looked up one of her songs, 'Stick Around.' I told her she had an amazing voice. We started talking about iCarly and we found out we have the same birthday, we were singing 'Jingle Bells' together." Wow. Is that a match made in heaven or what?!
This duo got along so great, in fact, that Ariana gave Jennette a new nick name within seconds of meeting her! "You called Nathan and I 'babies,'" Jennette said to Ariana. "That was my thing back then. I called everyone 'babies.' Like, 'OMG, that's babies,'" Ariana replied. Well, maybe Ariana was seeing into the future, 'cause there's about to be a LOT of babies around her and Jennette! But hopefully, they won't be crying.
