Euphoria Jacob Elordi on his unrefined past
Jacob Elordi told GQ: "I had to go through and delete my high school pictures because that was the Instagram that I used for my life. I wish people could understand how drastic that change was."
Jacob also revealed that he lived in his car before he was hired to star in the HBO teen drama Euphoria. In it, he plays "Nate Jacobs", a violent high school jock. "I wasn't booking jobs. I think I had – I don't know, $400 or $800 left in my bank account – and Euphoria was my last audition before I went home for a little while to make some money and recuperate," Elordi recalls.
However, even after he had his big breakthrough, he almost considered quitting acting again: "I might sound quite sensitive and dramatic, but I am sensitive and I’m very dramatic."
Jacob Elordi added: "I hated being a character to the public. I felt so far from myself."
