Why Jacob Elordi Calls This Bag His “Hermione” Tote

GQ’s September cover star walked us through his 10 most essential items.

As he grows into one of Hollywood’s most talented young actors, Jacob Elordi has found a few items working themselves into his daily essentials. Like a leather folio to hold scripts, and a black cap for going undercover. Other goods—like a travel-sized watercolor set and a deck of cards—are less obviously crucial, though no less essential. “I don’t know anything about cards,” Elordi admits. “I don’t know how to handle them. I don’t know how to shuffle.”

Elordi houses his items in a tote bag. “It’s kind of like Hermione’s bag. You know, in Harry Potter, when she pulls a tent out of it,” Elordi says. “You just keep digging and you will find everything you have ever lost.” Also inside that never-ending tote: up to five books at a time, ranging from a collection of Tennessee Williams plays to novels and travel journals. “My theory is, you never know when you are going to end up in a hospital waiting room,” he says. 

Gum is essential for non-actors, too, but Elordi finds a specific use for his Mentos Pure Fresh beyond just minty breath. “When you find yourself in uncomfortable social situations… you look busy when you are chewing,” he says. Rounding out the essentials: pens, fountain pen refills, and a vintage blue bandana. And no matter how deep his magical tote bag, Elordi’s most important essential doesn’t fit—a one and a half year old golden retriever named Lyla. “She is my best friend, she is my confidant. I run lines with her,” he says. “That dog is my rock.”
