"We just became kind of like the best of friends", he explained.

If you've loved The Kissing Booth 2, then it's nearly a mutually exclusive feeling that our current celebrity crush is none other than Taylor Zakhar Perez, who played Elle Evans' (Joey King) swoon-worthy new classmate Marco.

Elordi, 23, who starred alongside King, 21, in the Netflix hit, recently said in an interview that he's yet to watch the film that led to his celebrity status. According to him, theirs is a very, very strong friendship that is not of the romantic kind. Aw.


Joey and Jacob dated for a year after filming the first movie, splitting at the end of 2018 but clearly remaining on good terms as they've managed to continue working with each other. He also said that the two of them instantly hit it off. "When we were in South Africa, we had dinner together", he recalled. Perez is very open about his feelings toward King, but he made it clear that they are not dating. "I don't know if I'm allowed to say that, but I haven't", Elordi told Variety. "To all my unread text messages: I'm sorry", she tweeted. "And so me being this new castmate and Joel Courtney being there and Meganne Young we kind of just all meshed really well together".

Manufacturing on Euphoria season two has been delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic, however will resume when safely capable of movie. Perez claimed they lived nearby each other, so it was easy to build their trust for each other. One of the pictures shows Perez and King hanging out under a waterfall.

Sharing his thought on the rumors in an interview published on Wednesday, August 5, the 29-year-old actor opened up to Entertainment Tonight that he "loves her dearly" and "would do anything for her". I'd do anything for her", he added, before stating, "We're not dating.


When asked about the ending of the movie, he said, "I haven't seen it".

During the chat, Taylor also pointed out that he got closer to "The Act" actress partly because she had to work with her ex-boyfriend Jacob Eroldi, who still portrayed her love interest in the sequel.

According to Refinery29, their friendship is just pure.
