I cannot believe that The Social Network was Dakota Johnson's first acting role...

The year is 2011 and I am but a wee high school student marveling at the brilliant film that is The Social Network.

I wish I was joking when I said that I saw this movie in theaters four times. And this was PRE AMC A-LIST! I paid for FOUR FULL PRICED MOVIE TIX to see this one film. And you know what? I'd do it again. 

Fast-forward to the present day and two of the films' breakout stars have reunited for the firs time onscreen since filming:

Thank you, VF, for this amazing gift that we truly did not deserve. 

In case you forgot, Andrew Garfield played Eduardo Savrin, former best friend of Mark Zuckerberg and co-founder of Facebook:

This has to be the most iconic exchange in cinema. 

And Dakota Johnson played Amelia, a college co-ed who hooked up with Sean Parker of Napster (played by Justin Timberlake) and informed him about "The Facebook:"

Whodda thought that a casual hookup would change the trajectory of Facebook? 

Now, even though they didn't share anytime on screen, their catchup on Vanity Fair still felt like two old friends catching up:

At the very start of the conversation, Andrew and Dakota reminisce about their first meeting — their characters didn't have any scenes together, but Dakota remembered sitting down and having lunch with both him and Jesse Eisenberg one day on set:

"And Jesse didn't acknowledge me," Dakota continued.

Before you write off Jesse for being rude to Dakota, they had an explanation!

Both...are possible. 

Andrew later recalled the next time they met and chatted at length at an industry party, which Dakota said she couldn't remember and Andrew only responded with, "I was sober."

We've all been there, ammirite? 

Whodda thought that after over a decade, these two humans would have formed a beautiful friendship? NOT ME!
