So Tom Ford directed a movie. It's called A Single Man. I knew Colin Firth is the lead in it, so I watched the trailer. And spotted another familiar face. Sure, handsome Matthew Goode and beautiful Julianne Moore, but hold up -- is that...? -- holy geez.
I knew from About a Boy that Nicholas Hoult was going to have an interesting face when he grew up -- hello, those brows and eyes -- but I did not expect this. Okay, so if I lived in the UK I'd already know because, since his dorky-boy role with Hugh Grant, Hoult has been a busy little actor, most notably in an E4 teen series called "Skins." But I don't live in the UK, nor did I see A Single Man at TIFF. So I googled.
Turns out that in addition to appearing as a stalker-y character called Kenny in this flick, 6'4" Hoult does some modelling. As my friend Jenn W. noted when I told her about his new contract, he's gone from "Killing Me Softly" with a tambourine to a gig as the face of Tom Ford International.
Photogenic much? Ford calls Hoult "Lollipop." Not for the reason you might think.
Inside, I'm a 12-year-old girl.
There are other images online that I could not post here because although Hoult is now 20, I'm not a 12-year-old girl.
A darned good-looking film, A Single Man marks designer Tom Ford's directorial debut and is creating Oscar buzz for Firth. It opens Christmas Day.
