That would be all six feet, five inches of Jacob Elordi, not so much a tall drink of water as the entire office water cooler. Despite—or perhaps because of—his gargantuan shades, “James Dean Death Cult” cap pulled low, and zipped-up khaki Saint Laurent jacket, the young actor is unmissable while strolling through the West Village of Manhattan this fall Saturday afternoon.
Even in Sofia Coppola’s fall biopic Priscilla, when he plays Elvis Presley, he adds a fresh side to the King that is both vulnerable and menacing. During their first encounter at a restaurant, “there were some girls there and you could just feel them all turn to him,” the director told me, which is part of the reason she cast Elordi. He’s really impressive—he’s so tall. But he really exudes charisma, and I suppose that he had an Elvis-like influence on women
