The Story Behind ‘To All the Boys’ Star Noah Centineo’s Scar On His Face

Fierce

The Story Behind ‘To All the Boys’ Star Noah Centineo’s Scar On His Face

Netflix

Since it was announced that Netflix would grace fans of the wildly successful To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before with a sequel, we’ve all waited with bated breath. Now the second part of our beloved film is finally here and once again Peter Kavinsky is back on our tv screens.

Speaking Peter Kavinzky and his beautiful face…

The man behind the high school jock, Noah Centineo, has sparked conversations online once again about the scar on his face. Fans of the teen romantic comedy series, have begun to dig into the origins of the tragically beautiful scar that marks the side of his mouth and after some sleuthing, we’ve discovered the truth behind the scar.

Speaking to Buzzfeed in a 2018 interview that profiled the original “To All The Boys I Loved Before” Centineo (who has been described as having Puerto Rican ancestry, explained that he got his famous scar when he was a child. “I got attacked when I was six years old by a Mastiff,” he explained. “He ripped a hole in my face, so you could see my teeth, my gums, and all the way through my tongue to the other side. There was a massive, gaping hole.”

Centineo went onto emphasize his belief that the dog didn’t totally understand what had happened. “I specifically remember him lunging, being pulled away from him, and then looking back and seeing him cock his head like he didn’t really understand what happened. Some people were like, ‘Do you wanna put the dog down’ I was crying, like, ‘No, he didn’t mean to do it!'”

In response to Centineo’s story, Brandi Hunter, Vice President, Public Relations and Communications for the American Kennel Club explained to Teen Vogue that Mastiffs are typically a more relaxed and gentle breed of dog. “Mastiffs are one of the most laidback breeds,” she shared. “They are protective, but they’re a very sweet breed.” Hunter also explained that some dogs became dangerous when an interaction between humans can go wrong. She went onto explain to Teen Vogue that when it comes to interacting with any dog, it’s always best to ensure that a dog feels safe and not threatened by allowing the dog to approach and sniff you first.

More Than 100 New Emojis Are Dropping This Year, And Our Latinx Cultura Is Represented: Meet The Tamale And Piñata Emojis

More Than 100 New Emojis Are Dropping This Year, And Our Latinx Cultura Is Represented: Meet The Tamale And Piñata Emojis

kgun9.com / Twitter

This weekend was special for more than just the Super Bowl, it was Día de la Candelaria (aka. Candlemas). And I don’t know about you, but I stuffed my face with tamales—as is mandatory. Why is that important? Because this weekend, we also found out that more than 100 emojis will be available on Apple this year —and one of them is an actual tamale. Is it a rajas tamale? Or is it filled with mole? We’re not too sure, but what we are sure of, it that a tamale emoji is coming and we can’t wait!

Emoji is the fastest growing language in history. 

Five billion emojis are sent every day, just on Facebook Messenger. And they’re appearing in some places you wouldn’t expect. One court judge in England used a smiley face emoji   in a document to make it easy to explain the court’s decision to children —an actual fact. So it should come as no surprise, that emoji consortiums have formed to keep updating the language and including more and more elements to it.

Starting in the second half of 2020, users can insert a tamale Emoji into any conversation.

Whether you’re including it in a text conversation about making tamales during the holidays, or simply emphasizing your craving for one of the best Latinx dishes around, the option will be there before you know it.

Emojipedia confirmed the introduction of over 100 new emojis this year.

According to Emojipedia, the emoji reference website —yes, it’s a thing—this year we’re getting 117 recently approved new emojis. From a gender inclusive alternative to Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus, named Mx. Claus, to a fondue, a bell pepper and a piñata emoji. 

That’s right, Latinos are getting another emoji that illustrates our culture.

The Piñata emoji is coming in the shape of a Donkey—granted, it’s an old, clichéd reference, but hey, it’s iconic nonetheless. Get ready to dale dale dale because the paper maché burro will be available to add to your convos, this year. 

The Christmas icon is not the only gender-neutral addition, btw.

The new emojis will also include a woman in a tuxedo, a man in a bride veil and a gender-neutral person feeding a baby. All of these emojis are also available in all skin tones.

As reported by Emojipedia, the officially approved Emoji Version 13.0 list was published last week by the Unicode Consortium

And it features 117 new emoji that will be arriving on devices like iPhone, iPad, and Mac later this year. Apple typically adds the new emoji with the next major operating system updates in the fall.

We’ll be getting a wide array of animals, household items and more foods in emoji form!

The list of new emojis also includes other foods like bubble tea and a flat bread, animals like a seal and a cockroach, and household items like a toothbrush.

The new emojis build on last year’s round of more inclusive icons. 

A hearing aid emoji, wheelchair emoji and seeing eye dog emoji were in 2019’s new batch. A gender-neutral couple and various combinations of people with different skin colors holding hands were also made available last year.

Back in February 2019, the Unicode Consortium unveiled 230 new emojis with a majority representing people with disabilities and their needs. 

They included hearing aids, prosthetic limbs and service dogs. It also included the option for interracial couples to mix and match skin tones.

New emojis are now added to the Unicode standard on an annual basis. 

These emojis are proposed by different companies like Google, Apple and Twitter, and finalized by the start of the year. This allows ample time for these platforms to include these in future updates.

The first emojis debuted in October 2010 

10 years ago, Unicode Consortium released 722 different designs, and the genre has come a long way since. In 2015, Oxford Dictionaries’ Word of the Year was an emoji–the Face With Tears of Joy one. There’s also a World Emoji Day celebrated annually on July 17.
