Do Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles Get Along Off Screen

As seen from the horses mouths themselves Jared and Jensen have built perhaps one of the strongest friendships off-set on television for characters who play as friends or rather related.

Given their on-screen chemistry, the question about how their relationship off the screen has come up often.

The way they live off camera also led to the question of whether their bromance is actually for real. 

Their friendship off-screen started early when they were still young and new to the show. 

And it is even said that they felt an instant connection and they used to spend all their time together to the point that they also lived together.

Jared and Jensen used to do a lot of things together including watching episodes of the show together. 

Their families are also very close, their wives Genevieve and Danneel also keep a close relationship and they are often seen hanging out together with their husbands.

They consider each other best friends as confirmed by Ackles when he said “We’re best friends, period. He’s my best friend for life. I don’t think it’s that remarkable, but it’s definitely special.”  

He even went on to compare their relationship with that of their characters saying “If you compare our relationship with Dean and Sam’s relationship on the show, there is a huge difference. 

Jared never drives me up the wall. We can talk to each other about anything.” Jared also confirmed this by adding that “Unfortunately for him, he’s stuck with me for life now and that’s important… Between Jensen and me there have never been any issues and I think that’s rather special.”

So, there you have, Jensen and Jared are buddies in real life. We hope that they continue giving us gold!
