Incredible Off-Screen Friendship Of Our Favorite 'Criminal Minds' Duo A.J. Cook And Matthew Gray Gubler

Date July 13, 2018

One of the reasons we love Criminal Minds is the show's beautiful friendships. We have Garcia and Morgan, JJ and Spencer, all of which have amazing chemistry and make us swoon every time these characters are on the screen together.

The reason for such amazing dynamic among the characters is the real-life friendship among the actors. We know how close Shemar Moore and Kirsten Vangsness are, but did you know that A.J. Cook and Matthew Gray Gubler are also best friends off-screen?

We've seen A.J. and Matthew grow up on the show together as well as their characters. Spencer Reid, played by Gubler, is godfather to Cook's character JJ's son. They have been through thick and thin together, so the actors became very close working on dramatic storylines of the show.

Fans love watching Cook and Gubler on the screen, but their photos off the set are even cuter.

Partners in crime

A.J. Cook and Matthew Gray Gubler have been working together on Criminal Minds for over 13 years now. Although Cook took two breaks off the show to give birth to her two sons, they never lost friendly connection and are now going into season 14 stronger than ever.

A.J. doesn't post on her Instagram very often, but she never fails to wish her dear friend a happy birthday.
