KJ and his on-screen girlfriend Veronica (Camila Mendes) have had some hot and heated scenes lately. Here's what he had to say according to Cosmopolitan.

On shooting sex scenes:

“It’s weird with someone you don’t know that well. On a movie set, you have time to get to know the person and rehearse before shooting. Camila [Mendes, who plays Veronica] and I just had to dive into it. Now that we’re friends, it’s easier.”

On what it's like to date in New Zealand:

“Guys in the States are a lot more confident than guys in New Zealand. There, if you go out with your mates, you all hang with one another because you’re too scared to talk to the girls. Being in the U.S. has made me way more confident. Also, having a New Zealand accent increases your chances by like 50 percent.”
