Jacob Elordi fans lose it over Brisbane-born star's Aussie accent: 'WTF'

The Saltburn star left fans surprised after using his Aussie accent on Saturday Night Live.

Jacob Elordi fans have been left shocked after the Brisbane-born star appeared on Saturday Night Live and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last week and used his Australian accent, with many thinking he was American or British.

The 26-year-old rose to fame in 2018 in The Kissing Booth and found success the following year in Euphoria, with the star using an American accent in both projects. In 2023, the star appeared in Saltburn and Priscilla, where he used a British and southern/midwestern American accent, respectively.

"Say what [you] will [about] Jacob Elordi but that Aussie can pull off an American and an English accent like it’s nothing," another said.

Some were also left annoyed that the star didn't get to use his real accent for any of the skits on SNL, with one fan writing, "@NBCSNL let Jacob Elordi talk in his accent!!! We are BEGGING."

"Why is #SNL making Jacob Elordi do an American accent in every skit?" another said.
