Jacob Elordi recently opened up about being labeled as gay while pursuing the arts. Before his breakout role in the 2018 Netflix movie The Kissing Booth, Elordi was a student balancing sports and theater.

From the age of 12, his peers constantly made assumptions about his sexuality for his distinctly different passions. The straight actor shared his comments as the cover star for GQ's September 2022 “Hype Issue.” “From the moment I did a play I was called gay at school,” the Euphoria star told GQ.

Elordi, however, was unaffected by his critics. “But I had this abundance of confidence in myself because I could do both: I was quite good at sport and I think I was quite good at theatre,” he said.His self-assurance helped mature him at a younger age. “I was never worried that my peers would think I was less than a man,” he shared.
