    In an interview with Variety, Jacob Elordi says he's kept journals just to establish who Nate is — but he's not sharing them with anyone.

    “There are a plethora of things," he explained, "but if I shared them you’d know what goes on behind Nate’s eyes, and I’d ruin it for myself."

    Jacob also responded to a question about Nate's sexuality, saying that he doesn't necessarily think about it while acting as the character.

    “I never really approach it in terms of sexuality. I always approach it in terms of family," he explained.

    “I think the sexuality thing is born from his not having a relationship with his father, or not having the relationship he thinks he should have with his father and mother."

    "The birth of everyone’s sexuality, in a way, I think, is based off of one’s relationship with their parents," Jacob also claimed (despite not being based in scientific fact).
