Nicholas Caradoc Hoult was born on 7 December 1989, in Wokingham, England, and is an actor, model and sometime voice artist, perhaps best known for starring in such films as “X-Men: First Class”, “X-Men: Days of Future Past”, “About a Boy” and “Warm Bodies”.
So how rich is Nicholas Hoult? Although still very young, but becoming known worldwide, Nicholas’ net worth is already estimated to be $4 million, the aforementioned movies having benefitted his wealth in particular.
Nicholas Hoult Net Worth $4 Million
Nicholas Hoult was still at school when he took his first film role, in 1996`s “Intimate Relations”. About this time, Nicholas even tried ballet dancing with his sisters, being involved in “Swan Lake” and “The Nutcracker”. However, Nicholas didn’t feel that he was good enough and subsequently dedicated himself to acting, mostly on television, performing roles in episodes of “Casualty” (1996), “Silent Witness” (1998), “Magic Grandad” (2001), and “Waking the Dead” (2001) among others. Thus, Nicholas started accumulating his net worth successfully at an early age.
At the age of 13, Hoult appeared in “About a Boy” (2002), for which he was nominated for three awards, although he won just one of them – Best Performance by a Youth in a Leading/Supporting Role – so this was obviously another successful beginning, in the film industry, with his net worth growing too.
Probably Nicholas’ longest performance on television was in the British teen drama “Skins” (2007-2008), performing in 19 episodes as Tony Stonem, for which role Hoult was even nominated for a Walkers Home Grown Talent Award. We may just guess how much it added to Nicholas Hoult’s net worth.
Together with Colin Firth and Julianne Moore, Nicholas appeared in the 2009 drama “A Single Man“ directed by Tom Ford. Further developing a business relationship with Tom Ford, one year later Nicholas signed a contract with Ford, which made Hoult a face of the eyeware company. Such a deal also helped Nicholas to increase his net worth. The year of 2010 was even more successful for Nicholas, as he was nominated for the BAFTA Rising Star Award.
As already mentioned, Nicholas Hoult became mostly notable for his roles in “X-Men: First Class” and the newest sequel to this film “X-Men: Days of Future Past” released on 23 May, 2014 and directed by Brian Singer. Hoult also appeared as the main character in the 2013 American romantic zombie comedy “Warm Bodies” directed by Jonathan Levine. For this role Nicholas received an award called Teen Choice Award for Choice Breakout.
Nicholas Hoult has also contributed as a voice-over in the video game “Fable III” (2010), and in the animated film “Once Upon a Time in the Kitchen” (2014). However, nowadays Nicholas stands out from others also because of his appearance as one of the most stylish men in Hollywood.
As regards his personal life, Nicholas Hoult apparently has an on-again-off-again relationship with actress Jennifer Lawrence. Together they performed in the “X-Men” series.
Admitted on Top Gear (2002) that while wearing his full costume as Beast from X-Men, he ran onto a golf course, gave the golfers advice on their swing, and then simply ran away again, with no explanation.
Gabriel Byrne gave him a watch at the end of filming Wah-Wah (2005), engraved with his name, just as his character did in the film.
Was given a PlayStation, one of his character's jackets and his character's hamster by directors Chris Weitz and Paul Weitz after filming of About a Boy (2002).
Had to attend an audition for About a Boy (2002) wearing his school uniform but, unfortunately, he forgot his shoes. He told reporters that be borrowed his mother's white shoes and coloured them in, however, the colour came off!
Was hit by a bus during filming of a TV stunt. The stunt called for Nicholas to be tied to a chair and suspended 20ft off the ground when he was struck by the double decker which was supposed to stop inches from him. He escaped with a bruised head.
Was a choir boy.
Used to play the trombone.
All of his three siblings have had some acting experience.
At one time, he was rumoured to be Eoin Colfer's favourite to play the lead role in the proposed "Artemis Fowl" film adaptation of Colfer's fantasy novel. However, as time passed and there was trouble producing the film, Nicholas grew too old for the role and, finally, the project was cancelled, altogether.
Has three siblings: Clarista Hoult (b. 1992), James (b. 1977) and Rosie (b. 1984).
Will attend Farnborough Sixth Form College, located in Hampshire, in September 2006 where he will sit his AS and A-Level exams.
He is the son of Glenis Hoult (née Glenis J. Brown), a piano teacher, from Rochford, Essex, and Roger K. Hoult, a pilot, from Birmingham, in the West Midlands. His patrilineal ancestry can be traced back to his four times great-grandfather, Joseph Hoult, who was born c. 1815, in Staffordshire, England.
He used to attend Sylvia Young Theatre School, a prestigious stage school in London.
Distinctive "vulcan" eyebrows
[on training to play "R" in Warm Bodies (2013)] We had zombie classes. So there are some very strange videos out there of me and Rob Corddry and a few other people walking around studios. They'd say, "There's food over in the corner. You can smell brains", and we'd walk toward the corner like we were hungry for them. And, after a while, it became quite normal.
In real life you get out of the shower naked, so why wouldn't you do it on screen? It's just a normal thing.
I'm just a normal bloke!
It's always a bit overwhelming when you arrive on set and everyone's new, but you soon become a big family. I find the hardest thing about acting is that you have to say goodbye to everyone at the end of a shoot.
I've seen kids who only care about performing; it's their life and it's all they have, and it's not a nice thing to see. It's unhealthy and if you're surrounded by showbusiness, that's what can happen to you.
[about continue acting]"Yes, definitely, I love it. I'd like to stick to comedy as it's great fun, or an action movie like "Lord of the Rings"."
I don't like watching myself. I get embarrassed.
[on being asked what it was like working with Hugh Grant] "Hugh was brilliant. He helped me a lot by giving me ideas and teaching me something new every day. He really helped me get into my role. He's my idol now. Him and Jim Carrey - I'd like to work with him one day".
