To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is getting a whole lot of buzz, thanks to Netflix. But so many fans have been stanning the Jenny Han books for quite some time. Whenever there’s a book-to-movie adaptation, sometimes it could be tricky to get all the fans on board – considering the fact that everyone has their own idea of what the characters and scenes are like in their heads. However, with this one – it’s safe to say fans overall seemed quite pleased. Come on, how could you not be obsessed with Noah Centineo and Lana Condor‘s on-screen chemistry? It was just so perfect and genuine.
In a recent interview, Noah actually explained that he and Lana were hesitant at first to film one particular scene differently from how is it in the book – considering the fact that there’s pressure to make the readers happy. Yep, we’re talking about Lara Jean and Peter’s first kiss.
“I understand the reader perspective fairly well, and you just want people to be happy. You know, there are some differences, for sure, in our film versus the book – and Lana and I maybe fought for as much as we could. But at the end of the day – when you’re making a film, some things just don’t translate and you have to be okay with that,” the actor said during the BUILD Series.
The actor added, “Our first kiss on the track, when she pulls me down and forces me to kiss her,” Noah explained. “In the books, she jumped into my arms and kisses me. But when you’re filming that, to make that work is a little difficult for angles and also maybe I wasn’t strong enough – could’ve been a reason. I don’t know.”
So there you have it! They changed it for a pretty legit reason, and it turned out totally swoon-worthy – so no complaints here!
