August 17, 2021
No, like, his literal drawers.
When Taylor Zakhar Perez, the 29-year-old star of The Kissing Booth 2, showed up on your screen as (v hot) new guy Marco Peña, you may have thought, Noah Flynn whomst? Now, The Kissing Booth 3 has solidified him as everyone’s favorite celeb crush. I called Taylor to ask him some very important questions, and he told me all about the essential, you know, dude stuff.
Where are you doing this interview rn?
My favorite room, the kitchen. I like to cook. I just made myself some Korean short ribs, rice, and broccoli on the grill.
And you’re also, like, really into skincare, right?
My mom’s an aesthetician, so she ingrained that into me. But my younger brother is always asked if he’s my older brother. He’s like, “Taylor, what do I need to put on my face?” I say, “Sunblock, for starters.”
What’s your bedroom like?
I have this big chart on the wall with hundreds of squares going from my first year of life all the way to 100. It puts perspective on how much time you really have left.
Whoa. Does it make you fear the passing of time?
No, because I’m not past the halfway mark yet.
Kinda dark, but fair. What’s in your drawers?
My passport, sexual things probably, dude stuff.…On top is a picture of me as a kid. A friend told me you’ll be less hard on yourself if you have a picture of yourself by your bed. Like, “Would you say the things to your young self that you’re saying to yourself right now?” If the answer’s no, don’t say them.
Amazing. How do you fall asleep?
I don’t know if I can tell you.…I mean, in California, things are legal, so…that could be the start of winding down.
Okay, yes, I’m picking up what you’re putting down.
