Nicholas Hoult is the cover of AugustMan’s new issue (#146). The photoshoot used was taken by Rachell Smith.

NICHOLAS Hoult calls me right on the dot at 9pm, Singapore time. Stellar punctuality from a Hollywood star is something I never expected. And unlike many other celebrity interviews I’ve done, Hoult isn’t accompanied by his agent or minder. It’s just myself and his British accent.

The Young Veteran

Hoult tells me he had just wrapped up filming for The Great, a Hulu exclusive drama series that details Catherine the Great’s rise to power in the 1700s. In the movie, Hoult plays Catherine’s husband Peter, who was Emperor of Russia for six months before being overthrown by his wife. It’s not new territory for the British actor. 

Prior to putting on a wig for Peter, Hoult had also played the statesman Robert Harley in the historical period comedy-drama film The Favourite. “I put on a wig for that one too, and it was surprisingly quite comfortable even though it was massive. The only problem was that it was full of hairspray and there were many candles on set; they wanted to light the movie naturally. So I was a bit of a walking fire hazard,” says Hoult, chuckling on the phone.

“I have a fairly manageable level of fame. But grappling with fame is something I had to learn. Someone once told me that you have to learn to be famous and that’s true. It feels unsettling to be walking out and about, and have people look at you with a formed impression even before they get to know you. It’s a bit like being an animal in a zoo.”

The Favourite, which is slated to come out in the local cinemas in February, has already won multiple awards – Grand Jury Prize and Volpi Cup for Best Actress at the 2018 Venice International Film Festival, five Golden Globes nominations, top 10 films of 2018 by the American Film Institute, etc.

But Hoult has never been the sort to chase awards or to choose a role based on the probability of being on stage to deliver a heartfelt thank you speech. It’s an attitude that was wrought by close to two decades of being in the industry. Hoult was a child actor who made his screen debut at age seven in a film titled Intimate Relations.

“You can’t modify your experience you had on a film based on the end result,” says Hoult. In this case, the actor is referring to both awards and box office results. Hoult has starred in numerous critically acclaimed and commercially successful films. But, he has also starred in a couple of flops. 

The Briton admits that it used to bother him. Not any more. “As an actor, you have to learn to deal with that. Acting is quite an odd game in the sense that there are waves. You catch a wave for a minute and everything goes well. But then, the wave stops and it feels like you’re back to square one. So, that’s something I’ve had to learn along the way.”

Nicholas Hoult is the cover of Style Magazine Italia’s new issue (January/February). The photoshoot used was taken by Michael Schwartz.

Nicholas Hoult is The Favourite. He’s also the hero of the cover of the January/February issue of Style. He provides a fresh new face with which to start 2019: the actor, who began his film career with Hugh Grant in About a Boy, isn’t yet 30 years old.

Sixty, on the other hand, is the number of years in the career of Flavio Lucchini, the creative founder of numerous fashion magazines. These 60 years are the subject of a conversation with Michele Ciavarella which, with the help of iconic photos and covers, sheds light on the (not always positive) evolution of society and language in Italy. Contemporary male fashion, particularly free “zero ties” formalwear, is the subject of a feature by fashion director Luca Roscini. It’s set in an amusement arcade and has the title “Las Vegas Show.”

Other, older, metropolises provide parallel entertainment in the new Style. In the Far East, a spectacular Tokyo is presented as a contemporary labyrinth, in the contrast between the great architectural and urban experiments and the randomness of its endless “non-places” and hidden corners. And in the West, Berlin is revisited, with the help of films, music and TV series, revealing its ability to reflect history from the start of the 20th century up to the present day.

And a Berliner by adoption, the 32-year-old German-Canadian actor Nolan Funk,is the star of our Menstyle section in which he gives his take on men’s fashion (which this year features trendy trench coats, utility ties, camouflage and a military look).

And another actor, Italy’s Alessio Lapice, helps close our fashion portfolio in style. He is also very much under 30. He’s young and dynamic, like this year’s first issue of Style, which is on sale with the Corriere della Sera on Wednesday January 9th.

Nicholas Hoult is the cover of Esquire Singapore’s new issue (november). The photoshoot used was taken by Michael Schwartz.

Nicholas Hoult doesn’t have much time.

In a lofty downtown Manhattan studio on a grim, leaden Saturday, we’ve been photographing him for over six hours, and he’s got a flight to catch. Yet even as the clock runs out, he’s a consummate professional. Hoult cycles through a carousel of outfits with a natural ease, even when we come to a thick, tartan suit patterned with funky appliquéd squirrels—a suit that would send a lesser man running for the hills. After we’ve wrapped, he makes the rounds saying goodbye to the entire crew with a graciousness and gratitude uncharacteristic of actors with his star wattage. He’s shaking hands, he’s slapping backs, and although his time is tight, he’s hesitant to leave until he’s connected with everyone. When we settle into a pair of armchairs to chat, there’s a boarding pass burning a hole in Hoult’s pocket, yet still he has a miraculous way of making you feel as if you’re the only thing on his agenda.

At just 28 years old, British-born Hoult has built a fruitful career on defying expectations, pinballing from big-budget blockbusters to indie romances to pedigreed biopics and back again. His appetite for newness is voracious, but as he stares down the next decade of his life, both professionally and personally, Hoult is ruminating on the path he’s walked thus far, looking ahead to new frontiers and reflecting on his craft.

You and I are stuck under the umbrella term of a ‘millennial’, something which we proudly brag about, and other times conveniently discard to ignore the perception attached with it. So the world of the internet has opened new doors for everything and that also includes a new way of dating. In the age of dating apps and speedy romance, ‘Newness’ is a movie which looks extremely relatable at many levels. Two people, meet through an app, and sparks fly quickly.

But love is not always enough, right? They end up in an open relationship and while they think it’s all chill, it’s actually not because insecurities crawl in. Martin (Nicholas Hoult) and Gabi (Laia Costa) try hard to understand that it’s pretty screwed up for them.

The director of the movie is the same man who gave us ‘Like Crazy’, a movie about distant lovers and the problems they face. Drake Doremus seems to have done a great job in showing the reality.

From writer/director Danny Strong, the biographical drama Rebel in the Rye is a fascinating look at the life of legendary writer J.D. Salinger, one of the most renowned and enigmatic authors or our time.
by Christina Radish for Collider

As a young Salinger (played brilliantly by Nicholas Hoult) struggled to find his voice, a failed love affair and his experience fighting on the frontlines of World War II helped inform the creation of his masterpiece, The Catcher in the Rye, but that also came with overnight fame and notoriety that lead him to withdraw from the public eye for the rest of his life.

During this phone interview with Collider, filmmaker Danny Strong and actor Nicholas Hoult talked about the influence of The Catcher in the Rye on so many millions of people, figuring out how to understand someone so mysterious, the importance of casting, reworking the film after screening it at Sundance, and why this movie would never have been made while Salinger was still alive. Hoult also talked about working with Simon Kinberg, who’s gone from producer to director for X-Men: Dark Phoenix, while Strong talked about the challenges of making the TV series Empire, which he co-created with Lee Daniels.

Danny, you’ve talked about seeing a J.D. Salinger biography in a book shop and buying it to read it, but did you have any interest in him, as an author and as a person, prior to that moment?

DANNY STRONG: Well, I loved The Catcher in the Rye in high school. It had been very influential on me, the way the book is influential on millions and millions of people. Also, when I was in high school, he was a major American mystery. There was no internet, and there was this big mystery of, where’s J.D. Salinger? What’s J.D. Salinger doing? What is her writing? So, when I saw this biography, I very naively was surprised that there was even enough information publicly known about him to write a whole biography. I was like, “What is this about? How did this guy do that? I’ve gotta read that! That sounds interesting to me!” That’s exactly why I bought it.

Nick, what was your first experience with J.D. Salinger’s work?

NICHOLAS HOULT: My first experience was with The Catcher in the Rye, as well. I hadn’t read many of his other works before researching for this, but I read the script and just loved it. The insight that Danny provided through that, but also the connection to the character and an understanding of him got me intrigued. I wanted to learn more, so I went back and read all of his other works and re-read Catcher. I studied biographies about him and tried to learn as much as possible.

It seems like a dream role for any actor, but what were the biggest challenges and what were your biggest fears, in playing J.D. Salinger?

HOULT: The biggest fear is that everyone has an idea of J.D. Salinger in their mind, even though there’s not really any videos or recordings of him. It’s this strange thing where you’re creating a character that people have very strong feelings about. You can’t prove to be right or wrong through impressions or things that people actually know exist. It’s about getting a real understanding of who the person was and what they stood for. With Salinger, it was his honesty and his dedication to not compromising with this art, and then how the war affected him. I just loved getting an understanding of him through learning about him, and then trying to translate that into the character.

Danny, at what point in the process did you realize that Nicholas Hoult was your J.D. Salinger?

It’s been ten years since his wide-eyed days playing a teenage tearaway in Skins, and now Nicholas Hoult is eyeing up a role to play a young Tolkien in a biopic of the author.

Tolkien, which will be produced by Chernin Entertainment for Fox Searchlight, will document the life of the iconic author who penned the Lord of the Rings novels, which were reimagined by Peter Jackson as a film trilogy.

Rather than focusing on his illustrious writing career, Tolkien, the movie, will document the young author during his orphaned school years, as he discovers artistic inspiration from friendship and love.

At school, Tolkien and friends formed a secret society of creatives which continued after his school years.

However, the film is set after Tolkien leaves school at the beginning of World War 1, as the writer’s formative years were torn apart, a harrowing experience which later influenced his famous novels.

Deadline have exclusively revealed that David Gleeson and Stephen Beresford will pen the script, and that filmmakers were inspired by Holt’s work in The Favourite and The Current War, as well as X-Men: Apocalypse.

Variety put up an article in which Nicholas’ co-star Kristen Stewart talks about working with him on “Equals”. Nicholas also comments on playing his character.

Drake Doremus’ sci-fi romance “Equals,” which follows two forbidden lovers on their journey to find freedom in a futuristic society that prides itself on having eradicated emotions, had its emotional L.A. premiere at ArcLight Hollywood on Thursday night.

The film, which stars Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult, along with Jacki Weaver, Aurora Perrineau and Tom Stokes, bowed at the Venice International Film Festival last year.

“I was never really a sci-fi nerd, but I was always fascinated with the genre,” Doremus said. “I thought it was an interesting landscape to set a love story and try to doing something warm. Most sci-fi films to me are very cold and very distant and I wanted to make something that was the opposite of that.”

Stewart and Hoult complimented Doremus on his unique approach to helping spark chemistry between the onscreen lovers during rehearsals. “It wasn’t about learning lines,” Stewart said. “It was about breaking down barriers and getting to know each other.”

Hoult still found many complexities in playing a character that “isn’t meant to feel” and “understanding how that changes throughout the movie.” “It’s kind of like these characters have been alive and know how to do everything a human knows how to do, but they don’t feel,” he said. “So, it’s like a baby feeling emotions for the first time, but not knowing how to process them.”

A24 and DirecTV acquired U.S. rights to “Equals,” which is set for a July 15 theatrical release.

At 25, English actor Nicholas Hoult has streaked across the pond, pouring gas on a promising ignition [he starred opposite Hugh Grant in 2002’s About A Boy…], blazing past his prepubescent “pudgy-face” phase [HuffPo highlighted his marked transformation while covering 2009’s A Single Man], burning through enviable social fiber [he amicably parted ways with former girlfriend Jennifer Lawrence], finally harnessing his 6’3 Adonis physique [he deftly portrays Young Hank McCoy/Beast in the latest X-Men trilogy and Nux, the frenzied War Boy, in Mad Max: Fury Road] only to blister through the incestuous stratosphere of celebrity/nepotism towards rare, exalted terrain, that of true Hollywood star [he’s starring in six major films this year, including George Miller’s new masterpiece]. Yet, arcing across this elevated trajectory, Hoult’s decidedly humble, even comfortably awkward over sandwiches and coffee.

EXT. THE GARDEN AT CHATEAU MARMONT – LUNCHTIME
“Do you think we can move to another table?”

Nicholas Hoult is wearing a t-shirt, windbreaker, ball cap and casual tennis shoes. He’s not sure about this cramped table deep in the patio. I’m not sure if this is a Hollywood star who’s too tall for the ride, or a man lost partway between Dave and Buster’s and the mall. Hoult’s a buck though, swiftly owning our situation. “What about that one?” Hoult points. It’s unoccupied.

An irony surfaces: I’m the one gathering evidence for the court of public opinion. Shouldn’t he be concerned about me?

Hoult deliberates the situation and we’re moved to the other table. We introduce ourselves with a quick, firm handshake. It’s like we’re members of a populous fraternity, where it’s unreasonable to know everyone by first name.

When the waitress appears, Hoult asks if I want to eat. “Yeah, let’s do food.”

“Can I get the grilled chicken avocado sandwich please?” he requests.
