Are they or aren’t they? The cast of Netflix’s The Kissing Booth 2 are young, hot and have surprising romantic histories. Joey King, Jacob Elordi, Joel Courtney turned into major breakout stars since the first film premiered in 2018. Newcomers Maisie Richardson-Sellers and Taylor Zakhar Perez will be making a splash during the 2020 sequel. Learn more about the cast and who they’re dating off-camera.
Costars Joey and Jacob, who play Shelly and Noah, had a longtime relationship in the spotlight after working together during the first Kissing Booth movie.
“Was it love at first sight? Well, I thought he was very cute when we first met, but it started as a friendship,” the Act star told Bello during their romance. “Right away we were talking about gross things with each other. But before long I started to realize, ‘Hey, I think I kind of like this person!’ It was such an interesting experience meeting your boyfriend on set because you spend so much time together and become so close so fast.”
By early 2019, the duo split and speculation from fans about their relationship made things even harder. “All you can really do at that point is shut your phone off and crawl into your sister’s bed and watch Friends with her, because when you’re going through something and the world wants to go through it with you or [wants] to get every piece of detail from you about it, it’s really difficult,” she told Refinery29 at the time. “I think that the best way to make it go away is to just not acknowledge it.”
While working with your ex could be potentially awkward, Joey took it all in stride during the latest sequel. “I am very much, like, a frickin’ huge fan of The Kissing Booth,” she said during an appearance on the “Mood With Lauren Elizabeth” podcast. “I’m a fan of how it resonated with the world and it resonated with me. So going back, and doing that, and making the sacrifice, obviously, what everyone is thinking about. I’m not outwardly addressing, but what I’m kinda on the sly addressing, making those sacrifices was totally worth it.”
