Peter Kavinsky — err, Noah Centineo, — stopped by TheWrap last week to talk the phenomenon that is his new Netflix film “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.” The actor, who is also starring in the streamer’s upcoming flick “Sierra Burgess Is a Loser,” told us all about his adorable on-screen relationship with co-star Lana Condor. Including the moment he thinks Peter first falls in love with Lara Jean Covey.
“From the beginning, Peter is interested, like from that first remark about her shoes,” Centineo told us in the interview above. “In his first scene, we meet Peter, I think he’s interested. But I think he really, really realizes this is the girl for him in the kitchen scene when they’re at Peter’s house and they’re kind of just opening up their family history to each other.”
Centineo also told us he was “absolutely” a Peter and Lara Jean shipper from the very beginning.
“I think they’re great for each other,” Centineo said. “And I think Peter’s ex girlfriend needs to skedaddle,” he added, referencing Gen (Emilija Baranac), Lara Jean’s old BFF and the girl Peter starts the movie off dating — but doesn’t end up with.
As for whether or not the already-beloved Netflix adaptation of Jenny Han’s popular YA novel — which just premiered last month — will get a followup film, Centineo says the cast is lobbying for it as much as you are. After all, there are two more books in the series.
“I know that everyone that was involved wants there to be a sequel,” Centineo said, adding that he’s seen the online petition and signed it. Wait, no, Centineo says he “lied” — he forgot.
“I saw it, clicked it, got distracted. I need to do it. I’ve been intending to do it,” he admitted. OK, so if there is no sequel, Centineo says you can blame him.
Centineo also told us about filming the hot tub scene, how he was recently compared to a young Benicio Del Toro, and that time he went bungee jumping during production — and, well, you’ll see.
Watch the full interview above.
“To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” is available for streaming now on Netflix, and “Sierra Burgess Is a Loser” drops Friday.
