Jacob Elordi wanted his character to smoke in “The Kissing Booth.”

Elordi played Noah in the “The Kissing Booth” movies.

The movies were based on the books written by Beth Reekles.

Netflix refused Elordi’s request for Noah to hold a cigarette.

He indicated the area in the book where the character was depicted smoking.

Elordi said acting was like breathing for him.

Joey King said she would never regret being a part of the movies.

Colin Farrell, who played Penguin in “The Batman,” said he fought Warner Bros. for a cigar.

Emma Stone also said Disney declined her request to use a cigarette holder.
