Through the opening scenes of episode two, “Stuntin’ Like My Daddy,” we study simply how Nate (Jacob Elordi) got here to be so horribly offended and toxically masculine. Apparently he is so afraid of seeing anybody else’s penis in a locker room that he taught himself to stare straight forward, so cue photographs of Jacob Elordi standing utterly nonetheless, totally clothed, whereas 100 bare boys cheer and shout round him. Apparently the scene initially had a complete lot extra penises, however HBO requested for a few of them to be eliminated.
“For me, it was attention-grabbing as a result of that scene was really very actual, and the look on my face and the best way that I used to be feeling was very actual,” Elordi informed THR. “The power within the room of that many large males leaping and yelling and slapping you—nudity apart—I am nothing like Nate, and it was so intense. I did not notice locker rooms might be so intense, but it surely was really fairly hilarious. I do not care about that type of stuff, and it is humorous studying the entire critiques now—everybody’s like, ‘There’s this many penises.’ However once you’re there, it was simply hilarious. I feel it is a humorous scene, and I am going to positively always remember it.”
