A lot of child actors keep acting for the wrong reasons.
– Nicholas Hoult
I don’t want to share my worries – that’s for me to know.
The paparazzi don’t care about me.
I won’t eat veal, and my mum won’t eat lamb, because she thinks it’s a bit harsh to eat cute things.
I don’t mind my eyebrows. They add… something to me. I wouldn’t say they were my best feature, though. People tell me they like my eyes. They distract from the eyebrows.
I always like to keep busy, otherwise my brain starts ticking.
I’ll eat anything. I ate antelope once in Swaziland. I didn’t know what it was until I’d started chewing it. Everything tastes like chicken though doesn’t it? It wasn’t bad.
I want to get more muscly.
I can be a bit grumpy. I’m full of angst, and hormones.
I think all teenagers feel alone, and that nobody else knows what they are going through and all that sort of stuff.
I’m not scared of growing up, but it just happens, doesn’t it?
If you’re out, and starving, and need a bite to eat, then you need fast food.
I try not to be too optimistic or pessimistic. If you’re a pessimist then that’s depressing all the time; if you’re an optimist and things don’t work out then that’s depressing, too.
I don’t really have disappointments, because I build myself up for rejection.
As you’re growing up, it’s odd, because directors don’t expect you to grow up. They think you’ll be young forever, but as an actor, there is an awkward period when you’re too young for old or too old for young, and it can be an odd time.
Nowadays we have so many things that take our attention – phones, Internet – and perhaps we need to disconnect from those and focus on the immediate world around us and the people that are actually present.
Long-term boredom can’t lead to anything good.
Other people’s success spurs me on to do well and gives me motivation.
Life’s too short for regrets.
Occasionally people will look at me and do a double take and they’ll look at me like they’re trying to think where they know me from.
I’ve got a really great family round me, two sisters and an older brother and my mum and dad. Everybody’s equal.
When you’re on TV and in people’s houses – it’s great that anybody watches anything you’ve done, but you feel as though you’re being watched by Big Brother sometimes. Even if people have no idea who you are, you get the feeling you’re being watched.
Supposedly I’m impossible to talk to. But it’s honestly not me being difficult. Sometimes you just don’t have a lot to say.
I’m kind of feeling ashamed now that I never get bullied. Everyone keeps asking me, but I don’t, and it’s kind of annoying. I wish I could say I did get bullied, because then everyone would feel sorry for me.
I’ve realized why I don’t tell the truth in interviews. It’s because they’re printed months later, and you change so quickly – you have new thoughts, new everything – so people are reading an old version of you.
I think if you set yourself specific goals, that’s quite a lot of pressure.
