Joey King recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote her popular new series “We Were the Lucky Ones,” which is currently streaming on Hulu. During the interview, King shared some insights into the show and her personal life.

“We Were the Lucky Ones” is a true story based on Georgia Hunter’s novel about a Polish Jewish family who was separated during the Holocaust but miraculously survived. Filming such an emotionally heavy subject took its toll on King, but she felt honored to be a part of this incredible project.

King explained that while filming, she had a rare break of three days and decided to take a romantic getaway to Barcelona with her husband. As self-proclaimed foodies, they made a reservation in one of the best restaurants in the world. However, the excitement quickly turned into disappointment when they realized it was a 28-course meal. King humorously recounted how each dish looked like a work of art but tasted completely different from what they expected. Despite feeling full after course 17, they pushed through, not wanting to disappoint the hardworking chef. Unfortunately, this gastronomic adventure took a toll on King’s stomach, and she ended up spending more time with the toilet than enjoying the sights of Barcelona.

However, King remained positive, jokingly mentioning that her husband had a great trip watching Seinfeld while she dealt with the unfortunate consequences of the extravagant meal. Reflecting on the experience, she admitted that it had ruined fine dining for her and she would now prefer a simple hamburger over any foam-covered dish.

Throughout the interview, King’s lighthearted and relatable storytelling left the audience entertained and empathetic towards her misadventure in Barcelona. Despite the unpleasant experience, King is thriving both professionally and personally, as she recently got married. Her grandma, who was present during the interview, couldn’t hide her pride and happiness for King’s accomplishments.

“We Were the Lucky Ones” continues to captivate viewers with its poignant and inspiring story. New episodes premiere on Hulu every Thursday, and fans can look forward to more remarkable performances from Joey King.

In conclusion, Joey King‘s appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live was filled with humor and insights into her new series. From surviving the emotional toll of filming “We Were the Lucky Ones” to her memorable dining experience in Barcelona, King proved she can handle anything that comes her way, both on and off the screen.
