Jules LeBlanc and Jayden Bartels Play 'How Well Do You Know Your Co-Star'

The stars, who play besties on Nickelodeon's Side Hustle, are just as close off-screen.

Jules LeBlanc and Jayden Bartels don't just play best friends on TV, they really are inseparable besties in real life. Don't believe us? Just watch Marie Claire's latest installment of "How Well Do You Know Your Co-Star," where LeBlanc and Bartels, who play Lex and Presley, respectively, in Nickelodeon's newest show Side Hustle, prove how close they are.

"Being on set together is a dream come true," Bartels says about working with her co-star on the comedy about two BFFs who have to find creative ways to earn cash to pay back a neighbor. "It's a lot of work—we love our job, but it's a lot of work—and we need each other. We're just perfect for each other in every sense. The show is so much easier when we're together."

"I don't think I could do it with anyone else," LeBlanc adds.

During the game, the teen stars reveal their first celebrity crushes, relationship deal-breakers, and even where they plan to move together one day (which is, apparently, also news to their parents).

Watch LeBlanc and Bartels absolutely own our trivia challenge, and then catch Side Hustle Saturdays on Nickelodeon.
