Joey King says the former was not ‘easy’ to work with Jacob Elordi, but it was necessary for his ‘Kiss Booth 2’ character:
Joey King gave an honest look at what it was like in a new cover story for Cosmopolitan filming Kisses Booth films with his former and co-star Jacob Elordi.
Joey King is revealing what it’s really like to work with his former Jacob Elordi on Kiss Booth movies.
They also shared photos with each other on social media, many of which have since been removed since their breakup.
Raja co-starred with “Kisses Booth 2” (released in July 2020) with Elordi, her on-screen love interest she previously dated. They met in 2017 during the shooting of the first film and it is unclear when the real-life relationship between Raja and Allordy began, but they paired for the red carpet throughout 2018.
The king explained that his obligation to kiss the Booth franchise came first and foremost included any inconvenience he might have to work with Elordi because of this separation. “There’s a lot I want to say,” according to Cosmo, laughing. “Is that the most, um, right way to go about this? Elle Evans needs her Noah Flann, and whatever it is for my personal life, I’ll do anything to ensure my character’s story that I care so much
The 21-year-old actress continued: “I’m sure people will analyze every movement and every detail. And you know what to let them do? But at the end of the day, I was just thrilled again for Elle Evans.”
King also said that he would not let his off-screen relationships be influenced by his character and Allordy (Noah Flynn).
“It was a wild experience, but honestly, it was a really beautiful time because I learned a lot about myself and I grew as an actor, I grew as a person,” he said.
It appears that both Alordi and King are in new relationships after the 2018 split. King is reportedly dating actor-producer Steven Pete, whom he referred to as his “sweet boyfriend” in Instille’s recent essay about quarantine. (Rumors had been dating he kisses Booth 2 co-star (and second love interest) Taylor Zakhar Perez has put the rest.) Elordi was first seen kissing co-star Zendaya in February 2020 in his Euphoria New York City. They are yet to confirm their romance.
