Running into your ex post-breakup isn’t fun. But having to stay acting like you’re crazy after you’ve called it quits? That’s the next level. Joey King, 22, and Jacob Elordi, 24, star of Netflix’s rom-com trilogy “The Kissing Booth,” met and commenced dating while filming the primary film, which premiered in 2018, King confirmed that year to Bello Magazine. Three years and two films later, the 2 have continued to play a few despite their own relationship ending.
“The Kissing Booth 3” arrives Wednesday on Netflix, and prompts main character Elle Evans (King) to form a difficult choice between who she’ll attend college alongside her longtime ally Lee (Joel Courtney), or boyfriend Noah (Elordi). “No one’s thinking to themselves, ‘That was easy,’ because it wasn’t,” King told Cosmopolitan last September of continuous to figure with Elordi. “I’m sure people will analyze every movement and each detail. And you recognize what? allow them to. But at the top of the day, I used to be just thrilled to be Elle Evans again. Elle Evans needs her Noah Flynn, and whatever meaning for my personal life, I’ll do anything to form sure the story of my character who I care about such a lot is complete.”
King and Elordi made it work professionally even through rocky personal experiences. We’re looking back on other famous couples who did an equivalent. Tarek El Moussa and Christina Haack had been married for a couple of years once they began co-hosting the HGTV home renovation series “Flip or Flop” in 2013. Though the 2 called it quits in 2016, they still co-host the show and co-parent their two children, Taylor, 10, and Brayden, 5. “At the start, it had been like pulling teeth,” El Moussa told USA TODAY in 2019 of working together with his ex. “Today, we have an honest working relationship.”
And they’ve both since moved on: Haack is now dating Joshua Hall following her marriage to Ant Anstead ending; El Moussa proposed to “Selling Sunset” star Heather Rae Young last year. JLo and Marc Anthony worked together plenty while they were a few, but the content didn’t stop when their marriage did.
The two briefly dated on and off within the late ’90s and early 2000s and collaborated on the 1999 song “No Me Ames” before tying the knot in 2004. In 2006, they starred in the musical biopic “El Cantante” and went on the road together the subsequent year. They welcomed twins Emme and Maximilian, now 13, in 2008. But in July 2011, the 2 announced an “amicable” separation. Just a couple of months later, the primary episode of their reality talent competition show “Q’Viva! The Chosen” premiered, during which individuals reported Lopez joked that her and Anthony’s relationship was “very Sonny and Cher after the divorce.”
Now, following a split with fiancé Alex Rodriguez earlier this year, Lopez has reignited another one among her famed 2000s relationships: Bennifer is back. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, have us wondering: When is texting your ex an honest idea? Tate Donovan recalled feeling like he was “sort of dying inside” playing Jennifer Aniston’s love interest on “Friends” amid their real-life breakup in 1994.
“I was just happy to get on the team. the sole bummer was Jennifer and that i was ending at the time,” Donovan told Us Weekly in 2018. “And in order that was tricky to kind of act, and act like we are just meeting one another, and falling crazy, or whatever, curious about one another, when we’re kind of ending. That was just tough.” The couple had dated for 2 years, but the connection was coming to an end as Donovan was filming his arc together of Rachel’s personal shopping clients-turned-love interest on the hit sitcom.
“It was just six episodes. I mean, only because we were ending. We were like, ‘Hey, can we not keep doing this? ‘Cause this is often really painful and hard,’” he told the magazine. Milo Ventimiglia vowed he would “never roll in the hay again” when asked about dating a co-star after his high-profile relationship with fellow “Heroes” star Hayden Panettiere came to an end before the show did.
The two began dating in 2007 after meeting on the set of the NBC superhero drama, where they both held starring roles: Ventimiglia as hospice nurse Peter Petrelli and Panettiere as high school cheerleader Claire Bennet. They called it quits in 2009 but remained working together on the show for an additional year.
“There are things that happen to you in your life that shape who you’re,” he reflected on Mr. Porter in 2017. “Everything I’ve been through from jobs to friendships to partnerships, everything has built me to who I’m. You learn from it. You learn a far better way of doing things. It wasn’t until my mid to late twenties that the work wears on you, relationships decline you. But I wouldn’t change a thing. once you get knocked over the top in life, it builds your perspective.”
