Jacob Elordi Reacts to People Saying He Was 'Miserable' While Filming 'The Kissing Booth 2'

Fans have been speculating for a long time that Jacob Elordi was “miserable” on the set of The Kissing Booth 2 (and 3) and now he’s reacting to the rumors.

All the chatter started after Netflix released a teaser video for the sequel back in October 2019 and fans thought he looked uninterested in the clip.

Now, Jacob is speaking out in response to people who thought he didn’t want to make the movie.

“No, no. I have a resting miserable face!” he told Access. “You know what it is? It’s because I’m usually thinking a lot, like, an insane amount about something ridiculous. I think also, [my character] Noah is a moody dude, you know? He’s a moody guy. He’s not running around [super happy]. I wasn’t miserable, I was tired but not miserable. I had a blast.”

“It was cool. I came straight from — literally, I finished Euphoria and then got on a plane and flew to Africa [to film The Kissing Booth 2]. So that was a dramatic shift mentally. But there was a nice calm in going back to [The Kissing Booth] and being able to settle into something I knew how to do and knew what to expect and had friends around, you know?” Jacob added. “I was so exhausted the entire shoot because I had just come off of eight months of filming then flew however many hours to Africa — I never really woke up. I just got through it.”

Jacob did have this to say though about playing high school roles at his age…
