Ever since The Kissing Booth hit Netflix in May 2018, we’ve all been dying to know if there’s going to be a sequel. And while we don’t have any confirmation as of yet about whether or not it’s happening, what we do know is that Joey King desperately wants another movie too.
“I want to know too!” she said. “I can’t really say anything, because I don’t know yet. I know I would love to be part of something like that, but you know, my fingers are crossed.”
That’s not all the actress revealed, though. She also addressed those Jacob Elordi breakup rumors. Well, kind of. Rather than giving a straight answer about whether or not the onscreen couple are still dating IRL, she decided to get honest about how strange it is that people actually care about what’s going on in her love life.
“It’s bizarre that people are intrigued about an aspect of my life that’s something that you usually only talk about with family,” the 19-year-old said. “I’ve kind of learned to not let it bother me so much, because when people ask those questions, it becomes overwhelming and you’re like, ‘I just want to experience what I’m experiencing privately, because whether it’s hard for me or not, I just want that respect and space.'”
Mostly, however, she says she’s flattered by the fan questions about her personal life because she knows it’s coming from a good place.
“These people invested themselves in a performance of mine, and it really touched them,” the actress said. “And now they really want to know what I’m up to, personally. I’ve learned, and this comes with accepting self-happiness, to just be flattered by it.”
So, about that Kissing Booth sequel…
