Noah Centineo revealed he once almost quit acting for a super relatable reason

Thanks to his breakout role in To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, Noah Centineo has quickly become one of the most famous young actors in Hollywood. But Centineo almost quit acting before he ever got to woo Lara Jean as the heartthrob Peter Kavinsky.

According to a profile in The Hollywood Reporter published today, November 7th, there was a period of time when Centineo stopped auditioning for new roles. The actor moved to Los Angeles as a teenager to pursue an acting career, booking audition after audition, until he landed a pilot. However, he told THR that the rules in his contract almost hindered his career.

"I had this six-month contract that didn't allow me to audition for anything [else]," he told the magazine. "My purpose was just to act, and you take away someone's purpose and you kind of deteriorate them."

Centineo was so disheartened by this six-month period of inaction that he considered quitting altogether. Luckily for all of us, he soon got cast in The Fosters—which also allowed him to pursue other acting jobs on the off seasons.

And thank god, because we don’t even want to imagine a world without Centineo.

Since Centineo mercifully didn’t quit acting, he’s gone on to land a ton of exciting roles. Since To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, he’s starred in the Netflix rom-com Sierra Burgess Is a Loser and landed a part in the upcoming Charlie’s Angels reboot. He’s also set to star in an upcoming romance action movie called Valet

And we have a feeling this is only the beginning…
