The Kissing Booth 2 is out! It’s just as cringe as the first but somehow, it’s prominently featured in everyone’s ‘Watch Again’ on Netflix. Some things have definitely changed since the first instalment hit our screens, but the most notable is the relationship breakdown of The Kissing Booth co-stars Jacob Elordi and Joey King.
If you’re a stan of The Kissing Booth, you’d know that Jacob Elordi and Joey King – who portray the lead characters – dated back in 2018, after meeting on set and then promptly broke up. As you can imagine, reuniting for The Kissing Booth 2 would’ve been pretty awkward.
At the end of The Kissing Booth 2, there’s a cute blooper reel of sweet moments from set. Fans spotted one scene from the reel in particular where Jacob Elordi is getting into character. When someone asks Jacob to describe what he’s doing and he says: “Yeah yeah, it’s me. I’m playing a slideshow. Just getting in my emotions. Pardon me.”
The slideshow in question turned out to be one of those iPhone auto-generated slideshows with sad music that included real photos of when Jacob and Joey were together.
Actors do a lot of odd things to get into character but, uh, maybe someone should check on Jacob Elordi because I don’t know how healthy that is.
