Noah Centineo's First Kiss Was Rom-Com Worthy

I dropped out of school when I was 13, in eighth grade,
00:41
to come to LA for pilot season
00:44
and auditioned like, two to three times every single day
00:47
for three or so months and got nothing,
00:51
not even a call back.
00:52
And they were like, he's green,
00:53
he just needs more seasoning,
00:55
and I was like, I don't understand.
00:57
I decided to move to LA when I was fifteen.
01:01
And I looked at my parents and I said
01:02
I wanna move to LA, I wanna do this,
01:04
I will be successful, I wanna make a life
01:06
and a career outta this.
01:07
And, as they always have, they supported me.
01:10
To All the Boys I've Loved Before is one of the films
01:14

01:16
Another one is Sierra Burgess Is a Loser.
01:19
Both young adult, rom-coms,
01:23
romantic comedies.
01:25
Cinematic crush?
01:27
The woman that played Trinity in The Matrix.
01:31
Carrie Moss.
01:32
Yeah, I've seen The Matrix maybe a hundred times,
01:36
if not way more. Really?
01:37
[Interviewer] Did you ever go as Neo for Halloween?
01:39
No. [woman laughs]
01:41
Been as the green M&M though.
01:42
It's just, your head sticks out
01:44
and then it's a circle
01:45
and your feet stick out.
01:47
[Interviewer] Where was your first kiss?
01:49
I was staying at this hotel, in Century City,
01:52
and there's a dance convention
01:55
and I saw this girl, her name's Mackenzie,
01:59
and I was like, wow, you're pretty.
02:00
I went up to her and I asked her
02:02
if she wanted to go to a movie with me. She was like, yes.
02:05
I said, great, meet you here in the lobby at seven.
02:09
She was like, cool.
02:10
So went to the movie, Cowboys Versus Aliens, Daniel Craig.
02:13
I remember vividly, you know when you're on like,
02:18
your first date, maybe your first date ever,
02:20
you're at the movies sitting next to the person,
02:23
and you're young and you're innocent
02:25
and you wanna hold their hand
02:27
but you don't quite know how to instigate that.
02:30
But you put your arm on the armrest.
02:34
First base.
02:35
[woman laughs]
02:38
and then they put their arm on the armrest and you're,
02:40
but you're still not sure if they're like,
02:42
did they just do that because it was comfortable
02:44
or are they trying to like.
02:46
And so you're, then you're like, kinda move your hand
02:47
a little closer to theirs and then
02:49
they, like, move their hand a little closer to yours
02:51
and you're like, then your heart starts going
02:53
'cause you're like, oh my god, this is happening like,
02:57
I'm about to, this is, I'm gonna hold her hand.
02:59
[laughs]
03:00
and then your pinkies touch
03:02
and then you just kinda hold each other's hand
03:04
and hers are just as sweaty as yours are.
03:06
[laughs]
03:08
and then you just, but now you can't move,
03:10
it's 20 minutes into the film
03:12
and you have an hour and a half left
03:14
and you do not let go of that hand, so it's just weird
03:18
and clammy and sweaty and hot and,
03:21
but so nice, you know,
03:22
it's so great that you've finally done this, this thing.
03:27
'Cause now it's like, oh, you do like me.
03:30
So then the movie ends.
03:32
Get up, leave the theater.
03:33
Hold hands, we walk all the way back to the hotel
03:35
and I walk her to her hotel room.
03:37
She, it's not knocking, she does her thing,
03:39
she gets in the room and
03:41
right before I'm like, goodnight kiss?
03:47
And she goes.
03:50
[Interviewer] Aw.
03:52
And we pecked, it was like, less than a millisecond,
03:57
and she closed the door and that was that.
04:00
But I never saw her again.
04:01
[Interviewer] Oh.
04:02
[laughs]
04:04
It was probably a terrible peck,
04:05
probably a terrible millisecond kiss.
04:07
Anyway.
04:08
[Interviewer] Okay, so this is,
04:10
Fortune.
04:10
[Interviewer] Yeah.
04:11
This is fantastic, this is wild.
04:15
I've never heard of this.
04:16
Oh I love that.
04:18
It says, fall in love, not in line.
04:22
That's tight, that's beautiful, can I keep this?
04:25
[Interviewer] Yes, absolutely.
04:26
Fall in love, not in line.
04:29
[laughs]
04:29
so dope.
04:30
Fall in love, not in line, motherfucker!
04:33
[laughs]
04:34
[Interviewer] Okay, so now we are going to have you
04:36
open a bottle of champagne.
04:37
Can I shake it?
04:38
[Interviewer] You can shake it.
04:39
And, like, have it explode?
04:40
This is insane, I'm so excited.
04:42
[laughs]
04:44
[grunts]
04:46
[champagne bottle pops]
04:48
[excited laughing]
04:52
