He also wrote an adorable tribute to her on Instagram for her birthday, 'Honestly I could write about this woman all day.'

'She is the reason I joined the KB2 family, she welcomed me with open arms and love, she supported me, she pushed me, she made me laugh (like pee my pants laughter and had to check my underwear), she inspired me to be a bettter actor, she shared her family with me, THE LIST GOES ON. Grateful for you forever.'

And she replied, 'Can’t imagine my life without you. I heart you T'

Taylor insists they're just friends

Taylor told Access during a Zoom interview this week that they're not dating.

He explained, "We just became really close during filming."

Taylor said she's only a three or four minute drive from him so they've been hanging out during quarantine.

"So we just became a lot closer!"

The Marco actor also pointed out that they've been doing a lot of press together for the movie so that's another reason they're so close.

Meanwhile, Joey's ex and onscreen boyfriend Jacob Elordi has responded to claims he looks miserable in the movies.
