Netflix star Jacob Elordi has opened up about his issues with fans focusing on his body after appearing often shirtless on “The Kissing Booth,” which came out in 2018.
Elordi, 23, said he “trained extensively” for the Netflix franchise’s first film because he thought the producers wanted his character, Noah Flynn, to be in tiptop shape.
“At the time, I was young and I was thrown into a world where everyone wanted to talk about my body. It’s really in the king I thought,” he told Health Men.

Elordi added: “I didn’t identify anything with all that. I was trying to show myself and be known as an actor. He worked hard and I hated him every second.”;
The player revealed his fitness scheme that he was working out seven days a week, sometimes twice a day.
“[Getting ready for The Kissing Booth] it was all about the sculpture and making sure I had this figure that I thought the character needed, ”he said.
The “Euphoria” star continued: “Now, it’s more functional. I wanted to be a blank canvas and be more concerned with my strength. I wanted to be able to walk and go with my grandchildren when I’m 80-something, you know? It’s more about being functional as opposed to actual aesthetics. “

“Let’s be honest – I have no interest in going to the beach and looking like The Rock,” he added jokingly.
Following Elordi’s decision to modify his health scheme, producers “The Kissing Booth” made him do less shirtless scenes in the second film, which came out last week. His character also gained further character development.
