Jacob Elordi leaves fans baffled after hearing his real accent

After Jacob Elordi hosted Saturday Night Live, fans have been left baffled by his real accent.

He's quickly becoming one of the biggest names in Hollywood, but fans have been left baffled by Jacob Elordi's accent.

The 26-year-old, born in Brisbane, Australia, rose to fame as Nate Jacobs in HBO's Euphoria.

Elordi is the talk of Hollywood at the minute, with his recent starring role in Saltburn captivating fans - though some got in a bit of trouble for picking it as their family film over the Christmas period.

As well as starring as Elvis Presley in Priscilla, the Aussie actor is clearly living the dream right now - and it was all topped off as he hosted Saturday Night Live for the very first time this past weekend.

Of course, being an actor involves using a bunch of different accents - ones that are very different from your own.

As a result, many have not heard Elordi's 'true' accent before, but that all changed with Saturday Night Live as he hosted the show in his natural voice.

Well, it appears that many expected the actor to sound American, but that certainly wasn't the case.

Jacob Elordi recently hosted Saturday Night Live.

Many flocked to social media while watching the show to express their shock after hearing Elordi's real accent.

Taking to X, one person wrote: "Watching SNL and why did no one tell me Jacob Elordi has an accent Oh."

A second added: "I forget Jacob Elordi has an accent."

And a third asked: "Did we all just collectively forget Jacob Elordi has an Australian accent."

Others commented on how they thought the actor's Down Under twang was a 'performance'.

"Jacob Elordi sounds like he's faking his accent," another person on X quipped.

It comes as Elrodi issued an hilarious update on filming for Euphoria season three.

Before hosting Saturday Night Live, Elordi stopped by The Tonight Show to chat with Jimmy Fallon about Euphoria.

The second series dropped in 2022 but sadly, there's been quite the delay in filming for season three - something Fallon decided to bring up with the actor in person.

Fallon asked Elordi when filming for Sam Levinson's series would resume, to which Elordi cheekily asked: "I don’t know, do you know?

"I hope it’s soon, or they’re going to have to Benjamin Button me or something.

"I’m going to have a bad back walking down the hallway, you know?"

HBO confirmed in November that the third season of Euphoria is excepted to air in 2025.

But with the second instalment releasing two years ago, it’s been rumored that season three will take place after a time jump.
