You might know him best as The Kissing Booth‘s Noah, or perhaps Euphoria‘s Nate. 

But in these parts Down Under, he’ll always be our homegrown Aussie star Jacob Elordi.

The rising star got his big break on Netflix’s The Kissing Booth back in 2018. 

Since then, we’ve seen him go on to make two more sequels for the hit franchise, as well as starring in popular angsty drama Euphoria. 

If that wasn’t enough, the actor has ticked off a slew of other films in the background: 2 Hearts and the Ben Affleck film Deep Water to name a couple.

Here’s everything we know about Jacob Elordi.

How did Jacob Elordi become famous?

Jacob got into the film industry after being cast as an extra in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. 

He obviously got a taste for it there and then, quickly taking on an acting role in Aussie film, Swinging Safari. 

Not long after, he was cast in Netflix’s The Kissing Booth alongside actress Joey King

The star quickly rose from there (his rather good-looking face and undeniable talent were likely contributing factors). 

Jacob recently spoke about his growing Hollywood success to The Daily Telegraph, saying: “I’m not getting spat on or anything, so I think I am doing OK.”

Does Jacob Elordi have a girlfriend?

Short answer: Maybe?

After splitting with model Kaia Gerber in November, Jacob was spotted with social media influencer Olivia Jade Giannulli, daughter of Full House’s Lori Loughlin – and yes that is who was involved in the College admissions scandal.

Nothing has been confirmed as of yet, so we just guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Of course, Olivia and Kaia aren’t the only people Jacob has been romantically linked to

He also dated his Kissing Booth co-star Joey King around the time they filmed the first film in 2017. 

In 2019, it appeared the couple had split after American model Cari Flowers shared a series of cosy snaps featuring the Australian actor, one of them kissing. 

If it was real, the relationship didn’t last long because Jacob was next linked to his Euphoria co-star Zendaya, who is now dating Tom Holland, though that was never confirmed. 

But other-halves aside, there’s no denying Jacob is a rising star in Australia’s Hall Of Fame – whether he’s the next Chris Hemsworth or a Russell Crowe, we’re excited to see his next big gig, whatever that’ll be.
