The Kissing Booth’s Joey King Reveals Real Reason She’s Against Dating Actors Following Jacob Elordi Split
14 August 2020, 10:40
The Kissing Booth’s Joey King, who has been linked to her co-star, Taylor Zakhar Perez, has revealed she wouldn’t date an actor again following her relationship with her ex-boyfriend Jacob Elordi.
Not only that - but Joey and Taylor have had some serious dating rumours floating around in recent weeks, but now the 21-year-old actress has set the record straight about her plans for future relationships.
Joining the Howard Stern show, in America, Joey revealed that it is ‘really tough’ to date a fellow actor and wouldn’t do it again.
It seemed she has no regrets about having dated Euphoria star Jacob, saying: "I think it’s a good thing we dated in the first place. I learned the most I’ve ever learned in my life from him.”
However, when asked if she would be romantically involved with a co-star or actor again, she said: "No. I couldn’t.
“I think that it’s awesome to date someone who's in your field, who gets it, but doing the same exact thing as somebody is tough. It’s really tough."
Joey revealed that it can sometimes get competitive between actors in a relationship, saying: “You’re not thinking I’m competing with this person, ever. What you’re thinking is I hope that this success that either of us is having, you’re thinking mostly about yourself in the way that you hope this opportunity I’m getting is not hurting their feelings."
“I know a lot of actors who are with actors and married to actors and it works amazing and that’s awesome, but I’ve dated a few actors before,” she added.
Joey dated Jacob after meeting on the set of The Kissing Booth, back in 2017, and called time on their relationship in February last year.
She has since been linked to 28-year-old Taylor after a series of heartfelt posts about each other.
