During the chat with Access Hollywood‘s Kit Hoover about his sudden rise to fame, he spoke about the attention he’s getting, as well as his character in The Kissing Booth 2. Taylor also confirmed that he’s not dating his co-star, Joey, despite speculation that the two were more than just friends.

“I know, we went away this weekend…everyone kinda freaked about it. We are not dating. We just became really close during filming, but we became even closer after filming because we literally live close to each other…we were kind of each other’s accountability partners during quarantine,” he explained.

He also revealed his favorite thing about Joey: “She can make me cry laugh. She is hysterical…she just cracks me up, and she has this really funny laugh that makes me laugh even more.”

Plus, he teased what fans can expect from the highly-anticipated third installment of the hit series!

The two made headlines for their hiking trip together. See the pictures!
