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