We still don鈥檛 have a release date for Stranger Things season three, but we do have a bunch of fun new details from the cast to hold us over, including Winona Ryder鈥檚 confession that she once had a childhood crush on costar Sean Astin.

Astin appeared in the show鈥檚 second season as Bob, an old friend who sweeps Ryder鈥檚 character, Joyce, off her feet 鈥 something the actress once hoped would happen IRL.

According to Us Weekly, Ryder revealed her crush during a chat with moderator Wil Wheaton during the Stranger Things PaleyFest panel in Hollywood on March 25. 鈥淭here were two people I had a big crush on and they鈥檙e both here,鈥 she said, pointing to both Astin and Wheaton. 鈥淚 wasn鈥檛 like a crush kind of girl, and it was Wil and Sean.鈥

Astin, for his part, returned her affection, telling the crowd that his favorite Stranger Things scene to film was a romantic one between his character and Ryder鈥檚. 鈥淚 got to kiss Winona Ryder!鈥 he quipped enthusiastically.

Astin and Ryder first found fame as young actors back in the 鈥80s, when Ryder appeared in 1988鈥檚 Heathers and Astin starred in 1985鈥檚 The Goonies. As Astin said, they kind of 鈥済rew up alongside each other.鈥 And their bond today is stronger than ever. 鈥淲inona kind of reminds me of my mom a little bit,鈥 he said, 鈥渋n the sense of a powerful actress and I always want to hug her and take care of her, and so I feel like there is a Bob inside of me for Winona.鈥
