At this point, we're all in a polyamorous relationship with To All The Boys I've Loved Before star, Noah Centineo. But it's not our fault, I MEAN:

As we're getting to know our boyfriend and future husband, one question has been on everyone's mind: How did he get that scar on the left side of his face?

Well, ironically, during our Puppy Interview with the actor, Noah revealed the scar was the result of a dog attack when he was six years old:

BuzzFeed: How did you get your scar?

Noah: I got attacked by a dog [laughs]. I got attacked when I was six years old by a Mastiff. He ripped a hole in my face, so you could see my teeth, my gums, and all the way through my tongue to the other side. There was a massive, gaping hole.

Noah, being the perfect human being that he is, went on to explain how he didn't blame the dog for the attack and refused to let the dog be put down:

Noah: The dog didn't know what it was doing. I specifically remember him lunging, being pulled away from him, and then looking back and seeing him cock his head like he didn't really understand what happened. Some people were like, "Do you wanna put the dog down?" I was crying, like, "No, he didn't mean to do it!"

Shortly after the incident, Noah's parents got him a dog, and now he thinks "the bigger the dog, the better":

Noah: My parents got a dog for us — a black lab german shepherd rottweiler mix — named Mackenzie, six weeks after the accident. Getting a dog, a bigger dog, after that was great. And now, the bigger the dog, the better.
