Jacob Elordi Is So Dramatic

Jacob Elordi Is So Dramatic

In Euphoria, Australian actor Jacob Elordi’s character, Nate, is a case study in American teenage toxic masculinity, a complete 180 from the more conventionally romantic role in his breakthrough film, The Kissing Booth. Off-screen, however, the 23-year-old embodies something of a new type of masculinity unbothered by convention. Perhaps it’s because he spent parts of his childhood dressed in a curly wig and wearing red lipstick. For W’s annual Best Performances issue, Elordi, who is set to appear in the upcoming Deep Water, discusses his first kiss, audiences’ reactions to his role as Nate, and his early crush on Orlando Bloom in The Lord of the Rings.

Have you wanted to be an actor your whole life, or was that a sudden desire?
I think subconsciously, my whole life I wanted to be an actor, because I demanded all the attention from my parents and friends and people around me. Probably from when I was 12, I started doing musical theater. I did Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Seussical. From there I took drama classes. And then from about 15, there was not much else for me to do.

Were you a dramatic child?
Yeah, still am. I still am a dramatic child, for sure.

You’d start singing in the middle of public places?
No, I don’t think I would call myself a theater kid necessarily, who just starts whooping out ballads and songs. I’m more dramatic like in a drama movie. I’ll make everything 10 times more intense, serious, or heartbreaking than it needs to be.

You’re the baby of a large family. Did your sisters dress you up like a doll?
I think it was all of us dressing up. My mom has videos of me with this great ginger curly wig, with red lipstick on, and my sister’s purse. I don’t remember ever resenting it or putting up much of a fight.

“2 Hearts” Lands UK Release Date

“2 Hearts” Lands UK Release Date

From Yahoo! Movies:

2 Hearts is the upcoming romantic drama from The Kissing Booth and Euphoria star Jacob Elordi. Riverdale star, Tiera Skovbye will play Elordi’s love interest.

The movie looks at different moments in time and will also tell the story of another couple, played by Narcos star Adan Canto and Man on Fire star Radha Mitchell.

Inspired by a true story, 2 Hearts is a personal love story that will be available just in time for Valentine’s Day. It’s set for release via digital download on February 8.

2 Hearts is based around the love stories of two couples from different decades and different places. However, through a mysterious connection, the couples will come together in an unexpected way.

One love story is based around Chris Gregory (Elordi), a college student who falls in love with one of his caring classmates named Sam (Skovbye). The second love story is about a Cuban exile named Jorge (Canto), who falls in love with a flight attendant named Leslie (Mitchell).

The film is based on a book titled All My Tomorrows: A Story of Tragedy, Transplant and Hope by Eric Gregory.

The book is about Eric’s son Chris, who was a college student with his whole life ahead of him. One night, during a conversation, Chris’ parents found out that he opted in to become an organ donor after he passes away.

Unfortunately, Chris then collapsed and died of an aneurysm unexpectedly, which left his parents devastated. Eric wrote this book to share the stories of the people he’s met who were recipients of his son’s organs.

2 Hearts will be available for digital download on February 8, 2021.
