Jacob Elordi refuses to discuss then-girlfriend Kaia Gerber in interview with Esquire

Jacob Elordi declined to talk about his then-girlfriend Kaia Gerber during an in-depth interview with Esquire where he discussed his childhood and career.

Asked if being with Kaia had helped him in his loneliness, Jacob, 24, replied, “Oh no, I don’t really want to talk about my relationship,” before changing the subject.

The interview appeared to have been conducted before news broke that the Australian actor had split with Kaia after a year.

Although Kaia has since wiped every trace of Jacob from her social media, the pair still seem to follow each other.

While he didn’t talk about Kaia, Jacob was generally an open book in his interview with Esquire.

The Euphoria actor discussed the nickname his father bestowed on him as a child, and his role of Nate Jacobs in season two of Euphoria.

The actor admitted that his father called him “Jacob the Champion” because of his relentless drive.

“I would never stop anything, whether it’s running or biking up a hill,” he said. To this day I will never, ever stop. Even when I’m at the gym or something like that, I can still hear “Jacob the Champion”. It’s almost to the point of OCD where I think, “If I don’t do this last push-up…”‘

Jacob also discussed the superhero movie he would be making with Hidden Figures producer Theodore Melfi directing. The film ultimately fell short.

“I was like, ‘Dude, I’ll be flying around and shooting lasers for you every damn day,'” Jacob said. “I don’t know if I can talk about it because it’s gone now.”

As for another role, fans will soon see him back in high school quarterback Nate Jacobs, Jacob said “there’s a lot more time at his house, with his family” in the upcoming second season.

The actor also insisted that his love for the craft was greater than his desire for fame.

“I don’t care enough about being a celebrity to make movies that I don’t really care about,” he said.

Jacob also admitted that he was “very concerned” about what others thought of him and the kind of actor he was becoming, based on the roles he took on.

“I just felt really corny, and I felt like I had to prove to everyone that I was a serious actor. I felt terribly misunderstood,” he added. “I was guarded for a while because I made a teen movie.”

“I don’t want to end my career and I haven’t been candid and said what’s going on and how it feels. So this is the beginning of my openness, I guess,” he said before giving the peace sign and logging out of the Zoom call.
