Jacob Elordi on being “surrounded by men” in THAT ‘Euphoria’ locker room scene

THR asks: You have some intense sex scenes and a locker room scene where you’re surrounded by naked men. How was that to shoot? And how did having an intimacy coordinator on set impact the situation?

Yeah, I think she had to review every single penis before putting it on the show. For me, it was interesting because that scene was actually very real, and the look on my face and the way that I was feeling was very real. The energy in the room of that many big men jumping and yelling and slapping you — nudity aside — I’m nothing like Nate, and it was so intense. I didn’t realize locker rooms could be so intense, but it was actually quite hilarious. I don’t care about that kind of stuff, and it’s funny reading all of the reviews now — everyone’s like, “There’s this many penises.” But when you’re there, it was just hilarious. I think it’s a funny scene, and I’ll definitely never forget it.”— Actor Jacob Elordi to The Hollywood Reporter. Head here to read the full interview.
