Noah is featured on Bustle.com with a new photoshoot and article! In the article, Noah talks about his life and his two Netflix projects. You can view the pictures in the gallery and read the full article here.
The first thing Noah Centineo does is take off his shirt. When he visits the Bustle greenroom in September, it’s quite warm — though we’ve set up a small fan to face us — so Centineo is changing out of his jacket and back into his street clothes. It’d only been a few weeks since the world saw him in his standout role as Peter Kavinsky in To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. And just two days after his Bustle visit, Netflix would go on to release its second summer rom-com, Sierra Burgess Is A Loser, starring Centineo alongside Stranger Things star Shannon Purser. But in just the last month, a lot has changed for the young actor, who has been promptly named the internet’s boyfriend and already gained 9 million Instagram followers. And despite it being unbearably hot outside (and in this small room), Centineo is actually pretty chill.
It takes about two minutes of hanging out with him for me to realize that Centineo is the Evolved Male Lead™ come to life. He’s got edge, but is incredibly introspective. He talks about religious texts, but sings along to Nicki Minaj’s “The Night Is Still Young” on set of his photoshoot. He thanks his parents, dark times, and heartbreak for teaching him to respect others. (“You learn from these experiences that can be traumatic,” he tells me.) And now he’s playing characters like Jamey (in Sierra Burgess) and Peter (in To All The Boys), who are not “aggressive” or “hyper-masculine” like rom-com leads from the past (i.e., John Bender in The Breakfast Club), marking a change in what we have come to expect from leading men. “I think what culture deems to be appropriate, acceptable, and attractive in a mate is shifting,” he says when we sit down to talk.
