He started his career as a cute little weird boy in About A Boy with Hugh Grant and now he’s the Beast in the new X-Men film, Days of Future Past. There’s absolutely no doubt that this actor has been making a huge splash in the acting world.
Twenty-four-year-old British actor Nicholas Hoult has got brains, oodles of talent, good looks and, not to forgot, an amazing set of eyebrows. With so many good traits, we couldn’t resist naming him our Man Crush Monday of the week! For you skeptics who don’t know much about him, these points should have you drooling her Nicholas Hoult in no time.
He was Tony Stonem in Skins
This GIF more or less summarizes the amazing sex-drugs-party British teen series, Skins. For the first two seasons (or series if you’re British), Nicholas Hoult was Tony Stonem, the leader of a ragtag gang of misfits who were always on the lookout for a good party. He seemed to accomplish the impossible by giving the manipulative Tony lots of heart, especially near the end of the first season. I like to think his work on the show opened a lot of doors for this young actor.
He’s a badass
Aside from playing the badass Beast in the X-Men series, you can say he’s a “beast” in real life too — kind of. With his fellow X-Men co-star James McAvoy, Hoult took this flaming shot. I could barely watch!
JLaw & NHoult
Hoult and his girlfriend Jennifer Lawrence are one of my favourite Hollywood couples as they compliment each other in every aspect.
Except for a brief period last year, the two have been together ever since they met on the set of X-Men: First Class.
“It’s fun because in this business you are away from one another for long periods of time,” he said of their working relationship. “So when you’re on set together it’s a brilliant thing, because you actually get to spend time together.”
“[My boyfriend] is honestly my best friend, and hopefully I’m his best friend too,” Lawrence told Elle Magazine. “He’s my favorite person to be around and he makes me laugh harder than anybody.”
“We can eat Cheetos and watch beach volleyball and we turn into perverted Homer Simpsons, like, ‘Oh, she’s got a nice ass,’” she added. “I never thought we’d have such different opinions on asses.”
His take on love is so beautiful and makes me believe it was said about a certain someone… *wink* JLAW *wink*
Despite how you first discovered Nicholas Hoult, you must’ve noticed his beautiful blue eyes. His piercing gaze is so mesmerizing that we can’t help but fall into a spell while looking at him.
So Nicholas Hoult…
