Taylor Zakhar Perez isn’t keeping his feelings in the booth.
“I thought it was a shame because to my knowledge, everybody else had such a wonderful experience,” Taylor told Variety Nov. 16. “It’s a shame that was his experience on the set. Especially when those movies came out, it was a time when we really needed something like that.”
The 31-year-old went on to explain his experience with the trilogy, noting: “I know from our fan interactions, getting stopped everywhere I go, what Kissing Booth means to people and what it brought them during such a dark time. I guess the silver lining is he still made people laugh and feel good.”
“I didn’t want to make those movies before I made those movies,” he told GQ in an article published Nov. 13. “Those movies are ridiculous. They’re not universal. They’re an escape.”
