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.”
