Jacob Elordi Talks Zendaya, Possibility of 'Kissing Booth 4,' & Dating in the Public Eye

Jacob Elordi is getting very candid in his latest interview.

The 23-year-old actor chatted with Vanity Fair about his first big movie, The Kissing Booth, as well as his HBO series Euphoria and working with now ex-girlfriend Zendaya, plus what it’s like to date in the public eye.

Jacob says that when he landed The Kissing Booth, he was studying Noah Baumbach movies at home in Australia and it was a “moral battle” to take the role.

“I’m a purist and love the movie theater, so I had this weird moral battle of ‘What am I aiding and abetting? Am I the face of this robotic, terrifying new age? Am I murdering this thing that I love?’ But there was this mentality of, ‘I’ll do whatever the f–k I’ve got to do to get to the United States and do what I love,’” Jacob said about taking the role in the Netflix movie.

On the possibility of a fourth Kissing Booth movie, he said the upcoming third film “is really the last kiss.”

When asked about Zendaya, he said, “She’s a power unto herself and so talented, such a sweetheart.”

Jacob, who is currently dating Kaia Gerber, was asked about his perfect date, which he said is “a night in Paris with wine, and you’re dressed to the nines.” On dating in the public eye, he said, “You want it to be genuine and real and have all the feelings of what you read in 1920s literature, but when people are watching and talking about it, it makes it a little bit difficult.”

A couple weeks ago, Jacob went shirtless while spending time with Kaia in L.A.
