"I think that it’s awesome to date someone in your field, who gets it, but doing the same exact thing as somebody is tough. It’s really tough."
Ever since The Kissing Booth 2 dropped the personal lives of its stars Joey King (Elle Evans), Jacob Elordi (Noah Flynn) and Taylor Zakhar Perez (Marco Valentin Peña) have been put under a microscope.
From rumours Joey King and Taylor Zakhar Perez are dating (they're not, FYI) to the drama surrounding a tweet Joey sent about Jacob, the internet is just lapping up all the Kissing Booth tea right now.
Well, in the latest turn of events, Joey has just said that she's not down for dating another actor following her split from Jacob. As you know, the couple quietly dated after meeting on the first Kissing Booth movie and split in 2018. While it definitely hasn't effected their work, and there's absolutely no bad blood between the pair, another romance with an actor still isn't on the cards for Joey anytime soon.
"I think it’s a good thing we dated in the first place. I learned the most I’ve ever learned in my life from him," she said in an interview on SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show.
When asked if she would ever date another actor ever again, she replied: "No, I couldn't. I think that it’s awesome to date someone in your field, who gets it, but doing the same exact thing as somebody is tough. It’s really tough." Whew, sorry Joey and Taylor shippers.
Fans have been speculating if Joey and Taylor were a thing after they appeared to grow close during coronavirus lockdown. Taylor has previously stated that him and Joey are not together, but he would "love" to date Joey.

She is the reason I joined the KB2 family, she welcomed me with open arms and love, she supported me, she pushed me, she made me laugh (like pee my pants laughter and had to check my underwear), she inspired me to be a bettter actor, she shared her family with me, THE LIST GOES ON. Grateful for you forever. #tbt
