Nicholas Hoult is definitely an actor comfortable in his manhood. That is the view of some of his social media fans after this renowned actor revealed that during his filming of the movie "Mad Max: Fury Road" actress Charlize Theron taught him how to knit (The Belfast Telegraph - May 26).
His revelation that he knits and is quite proud of knitting has endeared him more to some of his female fans on social media who view him as a 'modern man' but it also shows that he is an actor who truly does not care what other people think about him. Many male actors would never admit to being able to knit and some would not even consider picking up a pair of knitting needles for fear of how the general public might judge them but not this English actor.
He is known for his sensational acting performances as he literally becomes the character and does it so well that fans don't think about him in the movie as the gorgeous Nicholas Hoult, one-time boyfriend of Jennifer Lawrence and instead usually find themselves referring to him by the name of his character.
Great actors are fearless and they have a tendency to 'march to their own' drum beat and Nicholas Hoult conveys this type of confidence and personality which is why him talking about relaxing between scenes by going to yoga or knitting did not bother him in the least because it is all about doing what is best for him to get ready to film.
Nicholas Hoult's acting in the "Mad Max" film has earned him much praise but his knitting and yoga revelations for some entertainment fans explain why he is so successful as an actor. While most people would have 'rabbit' ears and hear any criticisms about his knitting or breaking up with the gorgeous Jennifer Lawrence is an actor who did not hear or listen to any critiques.
To be a star lead actor one must have 'tough skin' and be 'immune' to criticisms, two traits possessed by Nicholas Hoult which is why this English hunk is one of the most in-demand actors in the entertainment industry for filmmakers.
