“The Great” star Nicholas Hoult covers the latest issue of DuJour magazine photographed by Kale Friesen.
On playing Peter III: “I’m not going to lie: I didn’t do any research on Peter III,” says Hoult with a laugh. “That wasn’t something that was encouraged with The Favourite, either. It’s very much taken as a fictional story. There was a moment when I asked Tony if I could do a Russian accent, but I tried it one night and it broke up the rhythm of the dialogue and I decided, this isn’t what needs to be done.”
On staying home and taking care of his 2-year-old son with his model girlfriend Bryana Holly Bezlaj: “Everyone else is picking up new habits and doing DIY, but the reality with parenthood is most of the time you’re busy feeding him, making sure he’s entertained, and then at the end of the day you just want to sleep,” Hoult says.
