Jacob Elordi Was "Really F*cking Bothered" By The Attention on His Body in the First "Kissing Booth"

Jacob Elordi fans may have finished The Kissing Booth 2 disappointed about one thing in particular: there were no Noah Flynn shirtless shots. While the first movie was overflowing with them, Jacob was fully clothed during all of his scenes for TKB2. And actually, there's a reason for that.

In an interview with Men's Health, Jacob explained that it was hard for him when everyone was discussing his body after the first movie came out in 2018.

"At the time, I was super young and got thrown into a world where everyone wanted to talk about my body…it really f*cking bothered me," he said.

Apparently, while filming the first movie, Jacob worked out seven days a week, twice a day to get the body we see in the movie. For the second time around, though, he chose not to train at all. He wasn't happy that people were talking more about his body than his acting skills.

"I was trying to prove myself and be known as an actor," he said. "It was so much working out and I hated every second of it."

It seems like the decision worked out for him since we don't get any ab shots in TKB2 and instead, we can focus more on Noah's dialogue and journey throughout the movie. Besides, we already know that Jacob was so exhausted when he was filming The Kissing Booth 2, so adding in a crazy, 14-times-a-week gym routine on top of that would have been near impossible.
