Jacob Elordi recently made a surprising statement—he never wanted to make the Kissing Booth movies that started his career in 2018! These feelings made him sound like Robert Pattinson who made fun of the Twilight saga.
Did Jacob Elordi’s Even Watch the Movie?
Elordi, whose recent movies include indie favorites like Priscilla by Sofia Coppola and Saltburn by Emerald Fennell, claimed in 2020 that he hadn’t even watched The Kissing Booth—but costar and ex-girlfriend Joey King suggests otherwise!
While he’s welcome to criticize his own work, we do wonder whether this is the best approach for winning friends in the industry!
Pattinson’s Hate for His Movies
It is not so bad for Elordi and Pattison to jump on their work. Pattinson spent plenty of time publicizing his dislike of the Twilight series of movies, but his stance appears to have softened since.
Robert Pattinson ended his battle with Twilight at some time around 2019. The actor then understood the second wave of fans was actually cool the whole time! Pattison liked that people came up to him and shared great memories of the saga. The actor was only scared when the craze was at its peak. After the madness had gone, only warm memories remained.
Will Elordi End His Battle With The Kissing Booth?
Perhaps the same fate awaits Jacob Elordi, and one day he will be able to look back at The Kissing Booth that made him famous, with better feelings. This, however, remains to be seen.
Netflix’s At Home With the Furys has garnered millions of viewers and widespread fan appreciation within a week of release. The series made its debut on the streaming platform recently and revolves around the life of professional fighter Tyson Fury as he contemplates retirement once again. It provides a unique perspective into the lives of the Fury family, featuring Tyson’s wife, Paris, his brother, Tommy, and Tommy’s partner, Molly-Mae Hague.
Tyson Fury Disliked Making a Reality Show
Interestingly, the show almost didn’t come to fruition, as Tyson Fury contemplated canceling it during filming, believing it to be a mistake. During an interview, The Gypsy King disclosed that he even sought legal advice to determine if he could terminate the Netflix contract he had signed. Paris, Tyson’s wife, also shared a story, explaining that they went halfway through filming when the fighter wanted to cancel the whole show.
Tyson elaborated on his initial hesitation, saying that he wanted out. A couple of weeks in, he said, he was really looking for a way out of it. Apparently, he didn’t know what he’d signed up for and had made a mistake. It’s unsurprising that future seasons of At Home With the Furys are not currently in the pipeline.
No Hope for a Return
Reportedly, Tyson has declined a substantial offer for a second and third season of the Netflix show. Originally planned as a 10-episode series, it was later reduced to nine episodes. It seems that after retiring, Tyson saw the Netflix show as a lucrative opportunity instead of the money he would have earned from a fight.
Apparently, the filming process was too stressful for Tyson Fury and didn’t go well, coupled with his return to active boxing after coming out of retirement. So, Fury decided to put a hold on a second season for the foreseeable future.
