Nicholas Hoult Talks Close Bond With Kristen Stewart

They might play characters forbidden from expressing human emotions in Drake Doremus’ new romantic sci-fi Equals, but the real-life friendship between Nicholas Hoult and Kristen Stewart couldn’t be further from their fictional selves.

In an interview with AZ Central, the actor praised the ELLE September Issue cover star for her relentless curiosity for acting.

‘That’s something that’s obviously part of our lives. Part of the thing that makes us similar is the fact that we’re not really in the classical world of acting and trained particularly,” he said.

‘We’re both very curious people, and she’s incredibly smart and in touch with her emotions,’ he added.

Describing the 26-year-old Twilight actress skill in front of the camera, Hoult admitted that he often felt inspired of her raw and relatable performances on set.

‘She’s very passionate and cares wholeheartedly about film and telling stories, and also that moment right there. So it’s wonderful to be in scenes with her, because the smallest flick of an eye or quiver of her voice, you pick up on so little.’

Equals (which is yet to be given a UK release date) centres on the eradication of human emotions (otherwise known as ‘Switched on Syndrome’) from society where physical contact, sex and love is forbidden.

his futuristic romance, which takes place in a world where emotions have been eradicated, hits select theaters July 15.
Equals stars Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult were among those walking the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere of their new movie on Thursday at the Arclight Hollywood.

Though Equals has been exclusively available on DirecTV since May 26, the premiere celebrated the film’s limited release in theaters.

This futuristic romance takes place in a world where emotions have been eradicated, aside from a certain few — including Hoult and Stewart’s characters.

While the two are an exception, that doesn’t mean they don’t portray themselves as emotionless in portions of the film. Doing so presented a unique challenge — not only for Hoult and Stewart — but a majority of the cast.

“The characters aren’t meant to feel, so then you have to play into that and understand that and how that changes through the movie and what it all means for these people,” Hoult said.

Jacki Weaver, who plays Bess, also struggled with the task. “I had to concentrate,” she told The Hollywood Reporter.

There is one scene in particular (it’s even teased in a trailer) where Hoult and Stewart are forced to confront their newfound feelings, though.

“It’s a special scene,” writer-director Drake Doremus told THR. “This is a scene where, the whole movie they’ve been waiting and waiting, to touch each other and then suddenly they’re able to in this very strange, tight environment and it was really amazing because we waited to shoot it. It was just an explosion. It was like boiling water until that moment, so it’s very explosive and very intense.”

Hoult thought so, too. “We shot it, and after, I think after a week or two of filming, there had been no physical contact between our characters up until that point or anything so it was kind of a release I guess, in terms of that — and also a discovery for the characters,” he told THR.

To prepare the actors not only for the scene, but the entire film, Doremus used slightly unconventional methods.

“Drake has this incredible rehearsal process that really doesn’t consist of rehearsal because it’s not about going over the material; it’s about getting to know each other, which is, like, really nice groundwork that a lot of people don’t necessarily typically put into rehearsal,” Stewart said. “Usually it’s about making sure in this sort of fearful way that you know your lines or that you are on the same page — this was really more about breaking down barriers and feeling comfortable with each other and just knowing that once we actually got to set that we were able to give our all.”

Hoult explained the process as being put in a room and doing different exercises, “where you’ll just say hello to each other, look into each other’s eyes for a long time and then you’ll, like, only be allowed to tell the truth or you’ll only be able to lie.”

The two seemed to have a natural chemistry, according to Doremus.

“They’re perfect,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “I mean, I really wrote the film for Nick, so he was always, you know, right there. When I met Kristen, she was so interesting and such a powerhouse, so much energy. I feel like they bring out something really intense and beautiful in each other in the film.”

While Equals certainly isn’t Doremus’ first love story (his credits also include the award-winning Like Crazy), the film is different compared to other movies he’s worked on.

“I think this film is very different than the previous films, but also very similar,” he said. “I mean, at the end of the day it’s a very intimate study of what it’s like to fall in love and deal with those feelings and over the course of time how that changes you.”

The dystopian setting also brought Doremus into a new territory.
“I was never really a sci-fi nerd, per say, but I was always fascinated with the genre and thought it was an interesting sort of landscape to set a love story, to try to do something really warm to be honest,” he said. “Most sci-fi films, to me, are very cold and very distant and I really wanted to make something that was the opposite of that — it seems very warm.”

Weaver even called the film a “retelling of the old Romeo and Juliet story,” due to Hoult and Stewart’s love being forbidden.

Though Stewart certainly isn’t new to playing a Juliet-type character — like Bella in Twilight —she didn’t see any relation between Bella and this new character; however, she said the two are “similar in their sort of dire nature.”

For moviegoers, Doremus told THR he wants them to turn off their brains and turn on their hearts.

Charlie Hunnam, Courtney Love and Matthew Gray Gubler also were among those attending the premiere of Equals, which will hit theaters July 15.

Kristen Stewart charms Nicholas Hoult with a bee in exclusive Equals clip

Though the sci-fi drama Equals takes place amid a dystopian future where people have lost the ability to feel basic emotions, Kristen Stewart seemingly inspires curious affection from Nicholas Hoult in an exclusive clip (above) from the upcoming film.

The scene sees Stewart seated in what appears to be a cafeteria, gazing down at a bumble bee that has landed on the table in front of her. Hoult, seated opposite her, watches intently as Stewart traps the insect under a glass, musing on its physicality. “According to the laws of aerodynamics, they shouldn’t fly,” she says, the film’s hypnotic score beginning to surge. “But they don’t know it, so they fly anyway.”


Kristen Stewart & Nicholas Hoult Are Criminal Lovers In Futuristic ‘Equals’ At Tribeca – Trailer

Here’s the trailer for Equals, in which Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult begin an illicit romance in this ice-blue, future-set romantic thriller directed by Drake Doremus (Like Crazy). The picture unspools tonight at the Tribeca Film Festival in its U.S. premiere following its unveiling in Venice last year.

Stewart and Hoult play co-workers Nia and Silas in a futuristic utopian society called “The Collective” where crime and violence have been erased through genetic Kristen Stewart in Equasengineering that also, by the way, got rid of all those messy human emotions and love is a crime. And yet. Nia and Silas can’t help noticing a growing attraction between them, leading them to a forbidden relationship at first tentative but then exploding into a passionate romance, provoking suspicion among their superiors. They’re forced to choose between going back to the safety of the lives they have always known, or risk it all to try and pull off a daring escape. Written by Nathan Parker (Moon), the film also stars Guy Pearce (Memento), Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook), Bel Powley (The Diary of a Teenage Girl) and Kate Lyn Sheil (You’re Next).

An A24 film, Equals is produced by Michael Schaefer, Michael Pruss, Ann Ruark, Jay Stern and Chip Diggins. It opens in theaters on July 15th, and will be available exclusively on DirecTV starting May 26.
