Joey King Says Jacob Elordi Approved THAT Tweet, Explains Why She Deleted It

Joey King is opening up about that viral tweet she posted last week in response to her The Kissing Booth co-star and ex-boyfriend Jacob Elordi saying he didn’t watch the sequel.

The 21-year-old actress made a virtual appearance on SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show on Tuesday morning (August 11) and opened up about the film.

Howard is actually a massive fan of The Kissing Booth film franchise and says that Joey is his favorite actress!

After Jacob claimed he hasn’t seen The Kissing Booth 2, Joey tweeted, “Jacob watched it. He’s capping.” The tweet was deleted shortly after and she’s explaining why.

“I said, ‘Jacob watched it. He’s capping.’ Which, ‘capping’ means lying. I head the term ‘capping’ on like Tik Tok and Twitter and Instagram, through friends, and I was like ‘I guess this is the new thing.’ Apparently its not. It’s something I should not have used as a white person. I took it down… two accounts on Twitter called me out for it, that’s why I deleted it. People thought it was because I was like ‘oh no I shouldn’t have said that about him’ so I deleted it because of that,” Joey said.

She continued, “The tweet was a jovial thing. It wasn’t to be mean—it really wasn’t. I know the The Kissing Booth fans they are always so curious about that tension of sorts and so I was like I’m just going to, I know they will appreciate it and that’s who it was for.”

“I did get his permission to tweet it so that was fine,” Joey added. “He had a good sense of humor about that tweet, for sure.”

Jacob recently opened up about what bothered him about the first Kissing Booth movie.

FYI: Joey is wearing a SAVÀ skirt, a Princess Polly top, Jennifer Zeuner earrings and colored rings, a Versace chain necklace and Stella Bow’s I Am A Voter pendant necklace.

Jacob Elordi Shares Thoughts on Ana de Armas' Viral Fan Account

Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas met on the set of the upcoming movie Deep Water, which also features The Kissing Booth actor Jacob Elordi.

In a new interview, the 23-year-old actor was asked about working with Ben and his thoughts on the fan account that Ana has blocked on Twitter.

Jacob says being on set with Ben was “like a dream. It was the most ridiculous thing ever. At first I just knew that Ben was in it. In my emails, it’s Ben Affleck, do you know what I mean? He’s one of the performers of my childhood, and just one of the all-time greats. We would do scenes from Good Will Hunting in acting school. I’ve seen every single movie that man’s made.”

Ana has a fan account that posted some witty commentary on the constant photos of her and Ben walking their dogs amid quarantine. She eventually blocked the account and it went viral.

“I feel like the Internet is dedicated to that,” Jacob told Variety. “I feel so bad for them. Let them walk their bloody dog.”

Joey King Reacts to Jacob Elordi Saying He Didn't Watch 'The Kissing Booth 2'

Jacob Elordi claims that he hasn’t watched the new movie The Kissing Booth 2 and his co-star Joey King says that’s not true!

The 21-year-old actress took to Twitter on Thursday night (August 6) to rebut what Jacob said in a new interview.

“I haven’t seen it. You’ve seen more than I have. I don’t know if I’m allowed to say that, but I haven’t,” Jacob told Variety.

Joey tweeted, “Jacob watched it. He’s capping.” For those that don’t know, the expression “capping” means lying or faking.

Soon after that tweet went out to her fans, Joey posted a GIF of Benedict Cumberbatch sipping tea.

One of the other stars from The Kissing Booth 2 just responded to rumors that he and Joey are a couple.

Jacob Elordi Admits He Hasn't Watched 'The Kissing Booth 2'

Jacob Elordi has admitted something that may or may not surprise fans of The Kissing Booth film series.

The 23-year-old Aussie actor, who plays Noah Flynn in the Netflix movies, says that he still hasn’t seen The Kissing Booth 2, despite it being the number one film on the streaming service for weeks.

“I haven’t seen it. You’ve seen more than I have. I don’t know if I’m allowed to say that, but I haven’t,” Jacob said in a new interview with Variety. He then asked the reporter if she honestly liked the film.

“Yeah, it was cute… I thought it was better than the first one,” the reporter said. Jacob replied, “That’s so kind of you.”

A lot of fans were under the assumption that Jacob was “miserable” while making the sequel and he recently responded to those reports.

Jacob Elordi Reveals What Bothered Him About the First 'Kissing Booth' Movie

Jacob Elordi is getting candid about his experience after filming the first The Kissing Booth movie.

In an interview with Men’s Health, the 23-year-old actor admitted that he didn’t like the attention surrounding his body.

“At the time, I was super young and got thrown into a world where everyone wanted to talk about my body… it really f–king bothered me,” Jacob said. “I don’t identify with that whatsoever. I was trying to prove myself and be known as an actor. It was so much working out and I hated every second of it.”

“I trained extensively for the first film, because it said it in the script,” he remembers. “I was so terribly nervous that I wouldn’t be what the script wanted me to be.”

Jacob added that his fitness regimen for the first film had him in the gym seven days a week, twice a day. He also admitted that he didn’t train for the TKB2 at all.

In case you missed it, see what Jacob said about the claims he was miserable in The Kissing Booth 2, AND see him shirtless in the first look clip at The Kissing Booth 3!

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…
