Joey King has opened up about what it was like working with her ex-boyfriend Jacob Elordi on the Kissing Booth series. She revealed it all on the cover of the September issue of Cosmopolitan.
King and Elodie met in 2017 while working on the first Kissing Booth movie. The film followed their characters, Elle Evans and Noah Flynn, as they found romance against all odds; the two quickly bonded off-screen and began dating. However, fans thought their relationship might have ended by the end of 2018. It didn’t take long for the film to get a sequel and to herald the good news in 2019, King and Elodie are teaming up again.
What did King have to say about working with her ex again? The actress says it wasn’t easy. She trusted people to analyze every move and every detail and said that everything would be fine and they just had to let go. She said at the end of the day she was happy to play Elle Evans again.
The Emmy-nominated actress explained that she has a lot to say, but in a nutshell, Elle Evans needs her Noah Flynn, and she’s willing to put aside her personal feelings and do what it takes to complete the story of a character she cares about.
In any case, the two stars have moved on. Earlier this year, King sparked rumors of an affair with Stephen Peet, the executive producer of her series The Act. Meanwhile, Elordi was also the subject of speculation with actress Zendaya, and the two have been busy working together – King has his hands full with new projects with Kaitlyn Dever and Margot Robbie, while Elordi will be seen by fans in the movie 2 Hearts.
If you think The Kissing Booth 2 is the last we’ll see of King and Elordi together, you’d be wrong. The cast has already revealed that there will be a third sequel to be released in 2021. They have already finished filming it. We’ll likely see more of them next year.
