Early life

Centineo was born in Miami, Florida, and raised in Boynton Beach, Florida.[4] He has said he is half Italian, Dutch, "a little bit of Native American" and "there's Puerto Rican somewhere in there."[5] He has an older sister, Taylor.[6] He attended BAK Middle School of the Arts,[4][6] and then Boca Raton Community High School for ninth and tenth grade, where he played soccer.[7] In 2012, he moved to Los Angeles and attended Agoura High School.[7]


In 2009, Centineo starred as the lead, Josh Peters, in the family film The Gold Retrievers. He then had small roles in the Disney Channel sitcoms Austin & Ally and Shake It Up. Centineo subsequently co-starred as Jaden Stark in the Disney Channel Original Movie How to Build a Better Boy (2014).[8] That same year, he was cast as Ben Eastman in the Disney Channel comedy pilot Growing Up and Down, but the project was not picked up to series.[9]

In 2015, he took over the main role of Jesus Adams Foster in Freeform's drama series The Fosters.[10] He made his first appearance in season three's episode "Lucky", which aired on August 17, 2015.[11] In 2017, Centineo was nominated for the Teen Choice Award for Choice Summer TV Star: Male for his performance.[12]

In 2017, Centineo began starring as Hawk Carter in go90's teen drama-thriller series T@gged,[13] which ended in 2018, and portrayed surfer/artist Johnny Sanders Jr. in the coming-of-age romantic comedy film SPF-18.[14] That same year, he appeared as Camila Cabello's love interest in the music video for her single "Havana."[15]

Centineo starred in three Netflix original teen comedy films in 2018. In the first to release, he portrayed Peter Kavinsky in the adaptation of Jenny Han's romance novel To All the Boys I've Loved Before.[16] For the role, he received positive viewer and critical notices, breaking him out as a teen idol.[17][18][19] He also starred as Jamey in Sierra Burgess Is a Loser[20] and Lance in Swiped. In 2019, he played the lead role of Brooks Rattigan in another Netflix romantic comedy film, The Perfect Date, which was released in April,[21] and had a supporting role in the Charlie's Angels reboot film, which was released in November.[22] In 2020, he returned as Peter Kavinsky in the sequel To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You.[23]

He will be returning as Peter Kavinsky in To All the Boys I've Loved Before - - Always and Forever on Netflix on 12th February, 2021. He is also set to portray He-Man in Masters of the Universe, a film based on the franchise of the same name, to be released by Sony Pictures.[24] Noah is also set to appear in the DCEU movie Black Adam, in which he will portray the character Atom Smasher.[25] It has been announced that he is negotiating taking part in a movie about the GameStop short squeeze.[26]

Charity work

Centineo co-founded Favored Nations[27][28] with his friend Josh Heller, a Los-Angeles-based actor and lifestyle photographer,[29] where Centineo serves as CEO and Heller serves as CMO.[30] The nonprofit 501(c)(3) produces for sale a variety of merchandise in collaboration with celebrities and influencers[27] and then works as an intermediary between donors and charities, where each donor can contribute to a charity from the list of nonprofit organizations including Black Lives Matter, Policing Equity, Know Your Rights Camp, Color of Change, The Bail Project and the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition among others.[31] In the recent years, the organization gained media attention and attracted a number of celebrities and influencers to philanthropic activity.[32][33] In 2020, Centineo also engaged Favored Nations in a collaborated effort for voter registration campaign to encourage Americans to vote in 2020 US Presidential elections.[34][35] Centineo and Heller also opened a voting-themed art house and virtual tour to increase voter participation.[36]

Personal life

In February 2020, Centineo revealed in an interview with Harper's Bazaar that he has been sober for the last couple of years. He experienced a turbulent period that started when he was 17 and ended the day before his 21st birthday and describes that time as “a really dark time in my life.”[37][38][39] Also in February 2020, he launched Favored Nations, a nonprofit initiative that will utilize his social media range and influence to raise money for charity. The idea was sparked after Centineo teamed up with Omaze on a contest, which ultimately raised $280,000 for charity, offering a fan a chance to go on a hike and share a meal with him.[37][39] Centineo has been in a relationship with model Alexis Ren since April 2019.[37][38]
