Nicholas Hoult for Flaunt Magazine

Posted on May 14, 2013

This is more your Purty of the Day, rather than your Pretty of the Day. The layout’s a bit on the dull side to excite anyone, but he sure is purty.


In the latest issue of Flaunt magazine, Nicholas Hoult discusses his work in Warm Bodies and Jack and the Giant Slayer, and his role in the upcoming X-Men sequel.  Photography by Thomas Giddings.

Is it us or does he actually photograph better than he looks in the movies?

The clothes are nice enough, but it’s all a bit on the pedestrian side of things.

        Um and what does this have to do with THIS WEBSITE? Get off please.

  • AllForUSophia

    The one where he sits on the bonnet of the car. Yum!

  • Cz

    From “About a Boy” to “How about THAT Boy”!

    This man exemplifies why you should never discount that kinda weird, funny-looking kid who mumbles a lot in middle school. Him and that dude who played Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter series.

    • jennifervney

      Seriously! I can’t get over him or Neville! ;D

    • Allison Drury

      It is such an unbelievable transformation. He is just beautiful to look at and was completely the opposite in About a Boy. But great acting chops in that film.

    • Rand Ortega

      OMG, Right???? My coffee exploded through my nose when I saw recent pics of that kid. I could go to jail for what I wanted to do to him.

    • Coleen

      It’s really making me have uncomfortable feelings about my Feelings, if you know what I mean.

    • lovelyivy

      OMG- I just did a quick google stalk on Neville Longbottom. WOW. Wow I did not see that coming at ALL. How the hell did he get that hot?

      • Cz

        Growing into his limbs and good dental work. 😉

        • lovelyivy

          That is some PRIME orthodontia right there.

      • Derek_anny

        Did you see that pic where “Neville was the hot one?” It’s got the 4 male not-teen leads at what looks like a party, and a bad picture for them all, except Matthew.

        • lovelyivy

          Ha! That was perfect.

    • Penny Eager

      YES! Fantastic child-star transformations from both!

  • StellaZafella

    I haven’t seen eyes like that since Paul Newman said…”Oh, yeah?”

  • nannypoo

    He looks like he could play Tom Cruise’s less-crazy brother.

    • berkeleygirl

      Who’s also a foot taller…

  • Silly Grrl

    Soooo pretty. I still prefer him with a bit more hair though.

    • Vera

      Me too.

    • irinaslutsky

      that hair is a bit russian guy

  • charlotte

    I’m sure he is supposed to look contemplative, but he comes across a bit douchey here. At least in my opinion.
    And I like men with more hair, but his eyes are mesmerizing.

    • gabbilevy

      He’s coasting on “Hi, I’m pretty” with just one (non)expression. But I’m not blaming him, the photographer did an all around boring job here.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    Blue steel eyes and a mouth that makes me fizzy in the right places. Yum.

  • Ms. Swegler

    He should be cast as Cumberbatch’s son. Mmmm imagine the yummyness!

  • misstressofsylar

    i just want him and J-Law to get back together but aparrently, he can’t handle her fame. he should be cast as Chris Pine’s brother no? damn those baby blues

    • Derek_anny

      Totally read that as Jude Law, and was slightly confused.

  • Clueless_Jock

    If this were a PR collection, it would be slammed for lack of cohesion. The looks range from James Dean to Liberace.

  • RedRaven617

    He looks like he is knitting his brow in thought in most of the photos. I don’t know, I think the eyebrows could use a little work.

  • OrigamiRose

    Wow, third to last picture – looks like a young Ethan Hawke.

    • Jessi03

      I didn’t see it before, but he really does!

    • Rand Ortega

      That’s it. I kept trying to envision which actor he resembled. The only thing that kept coming to mind was Gattaca. Thanks to you it all came together.

  • Jessi03

    He reminds me so much of Jonathan Rhys-Meyer

  • MissAmynae

    I like this. The photographer used the light quite well.

  • Monabel


  • formerlyAnon

    These could be a lesson in “What Clothes Can Do for You!” In photo #2 he looks a lot like most of the 2nd-job-outta-college but not-putting-on-the-weight-yet guys that I’ve worked with and bought wedding and first-baby shower gifts for over the years. Other photos show what ELSE he can look like. Yum.

    These also prove that it’s the piercing blue eyes that give me that off-puttingly strong “one stressful life event away from a psychotic break” look, as I’ve called it in another post. So as long as his eyes are closed, he’s looking away from me, or wearing shades, I can appreciate him fully. Very, very pleased.

  • RinPauler

    This is so boring. Jesus, I mean, how lazy can you be with that setting? He is one of those rare actors with a model-esque face, intense eyes, and they manage to make him look duller than my wall. Love that first shot, hate the rest.

  • TheAmericaness

    May have to turn in my “straight girl” card, but he does nada for me. What’s wrong?!

    • NoGovernmentName

      He’s kinda too pretty and frail looking for me. I can admire him aesthetically, but he isn’t HOT to me.

      • anotherkate

        I think it’s the lack of hair (for me, anyway). Makes him look sickly and scrawny, even though when I focus on his face, it’s quite impressive.

        • TheAmericaness

          That’s it! The shaved head! Maybe growing up in an area where skinheads were prominent makes me a little squeamish to the look.

    • annabelle archer


    • twocee

      Nah, I find him totally “meh.”

    • marlie

      He’s pretty enough, but he doesn’t do much for me either.

    • Rhonda Shore

      it’s funny, he looks a lot like my son’s tutor, who’s scared of our dog…

  • Candice Booth

    He seems so intense it’s sexy. I hope he and Jennifer Lawrence have great sex.

  • Vera

    Really wish he and Jennifer Lawrence were still together so I could see them hitting the RC together. Is that wrong?

  • blueberrypanckae

    not my style. It looks like he evolved from some sort of rodent…a contemplative rodent at that

  • lrober03

    Pretty fabulous coat though

  • TotallyDorkin

    He must have lost his keys to that car, and that’s why he’s waiting for the bus.

  • MilaXX

    He’s an odd one. Even in movies he looks cute in some angles and not so much in others.

    • foodycatAlicia

      Like Liv Tyler. Stunning one moment, odd looking the next.

  • Patrick Cleary

    I want that long blue coat!

  • sekushinonyanko

    Something about the styling makes him look like a hot guy that just got out of the army/prison.

    • irinaslutsky

      it’s the hair

  • Andrea Lane

    Ughhhhhh. I WANT one.

  • ballerinawithagun

    Love the coat and him in it in the third photo, the pattern and color are sensational. Catch him in the first 2 seasons of “Skins” from about 7 years ago on Netflix. He is beautiful and fabulous! I like him with a little more hair personally.

  • Qitkat

    I might have liked the shot with the giant shadow, if it had been used a bit more artfully. But I see I part ways with most of the other BK’s, as he does not stir what is left of my hormones. That’s quite the cool print coat though.

  • judybrowni

    Here’s your pouty of the day.

  • raininmai

    “Is it us or does he actually photograph better than he looks in the movies?”

    I think his head is kind of small compared to a lot of movie stars. It sort of diminishes him a bit. In the photos, they can adjust the angle to counter this feature and make him look…well, better. The closeups of him leaning toward the camera are the best shots.

  • Garcia Loca

    He’s got the vibe of young Ethan Hawke as Jesse in Before Sunrise. Me likey.

  • Imasewsure

    Love that kid but the layout is kind of dull

  • JauntyJohn

    I swear, I think he and Lutz are the only two who can pull off that buzz cut without looking like they’ve just completed a stint upstate or a round of medical treatments. The editorial is snooze town but that boy is arresting.

  • prettybigkitty

    What?! Not look good in movies? That’s crazy talk. He was/is gorgeous in A Single Man. Tom Ford obviously knows how to pick the pretty and purdy ones.

  • Dam_Angel

    I think he has a creepy, supremacist vibe going on.

    • alyce1213

      Serial killer. (Sorry fans.)

  • Coleen

    Listen, Troy Dyer, Jr., it’s time to shave that pretty face.

  • Jessica TallGirl Freeman

    I find him incredibly attractive, but I don’t think he comes across that way in most of these photos.

  • Julie Parr

    He always looked amazing in Skins.

  • alice20c

    The California context isn’t his friend. Even a slight tan would help. He looks like a cave creature drug into the light.

  • Teresa McTigue

    That patterned top coat would look awesome on ME, too.

  • anotherkate

    I can never get on board with that haircut. It looks like he got Fantine’d.

  • MartyBellerMask

    He does nothing for me, but he wears clothes well. I especially love that patterned jacket.

  • Girl_With_a_Pearl

    As a photographer, I find the second to last shot fascinating. Most photags would see that as too much shadow and probably throw the photo out, but it sorta, kinda works. Oh, and I can’t believe this is the same kid either. Very handsome.

  • FancyPhilly

    I’m having Ethan Hawke circa Reality Bites flashbacks with the one in the white tank top.

  • Susan Velazquez

    I go to school with a blonde version of him. He’s not cute though, he looks like a serial killer.

  • Fatima Siddique

    I can’t ever see him as anything but the little boy in About A Boy.

  • EdithP

    He looks really good here. I never saw the appeal of him, but that picture of him in the blue smoking jacket (or whatever it is) is striking.

  • guest2visits

    I think he looks especially good here, except for the last little clip – but that’s because I don’t like what I see of that double-breasted jacket.

  • shorty j

    basically I want all of his jackets.

  • Pas Teque

    If you’re so cold that you need a kimono over your suit jacket on a sunny day in LA, then honey you need to eat a sandwich.
