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.
