He’s come a long way! Noah Centineo was immediately dubbed the “internet’s boyfriend” and became an overnight sensation in August 2018 after starring as Peter Kavinsky in Netflix’s hit movie To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. Two sequels later and the actor is a household name, but it took a lot of hard work to get to where he is today.
“The following is overnight,” he told The Hollywood Reporter in November 2018. “The career is not.”
Before nabbing his title as a Hollywood heartthrob, the actor guest-starred in multiple Disney Channel shows, including Austin & Ally, Jessie and Shake it Up. In 2015, he took over the Fosters role originated by Jake T. Austin, and from there was cast in multiple Netflix rom-coms.
“It’s more of a blessing than a curse,” Noah said about fame during a February 2020 Harper’s Bazaar interview. “But ask me again in five years when maybe I’m boxed into it and can’t get out. If that’s my path, I might have a different answer for you, but at this point in time, I’m trying to enjoy every single moment of it.”
Now that the actor has officially made a name for himself in the entertainment industry, there’s a lot of roles on the horizon for our favorite curly-haired cutie. So, don’t worry To All the Boys fans, the series is officially over, but there’s plenty more Noah to go around! In fact, the actor is set to appear in the upcoming superhero film Black Adam set to hit theaters in July 2022. He’ll be playing the role of Atom Smasher, and totally transformed for the role! Per a February 2021 interview with Australian radio show Smallzy’s Surgery, Noah works out for “two hours every day” in order to bulk up for the upcoming role.
He also revealed that he was set to start shooting the movie in two months, which at the time would be April 2021. “Hopefully if all goes to plan, which I hope it does,” Noah said. “I’m very excited to do that, be a superhero which I’ve never done before, which should be fun.”
Noah will be starring alongside Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who the actor said he his “homie.”
“I met him once, via Zoom, and I told him that I was coming for his squat game and I mean it,” Noah said during a February 2021 interview on Stir Crazy with Josh Horowitz. “I’m gonna put him to shame, alright? I’m gonna tell you what … You don’t see how much weight he’s squatting in his videos and that’s because he’s afraid.”
