E!OnlineUK: Add Nicholas Hoult to the long list of celebrity Kristen Stewart fans. The two co-star in the upcoming drama Equals.
“She’s so talented,” Hoult told me at South by Southwest, where he helped unveil the new Jaguar XE at Boffin’s Lab Powered by Jaguar and Wired Insider event. “I really can’t speak highly enough about her. She’s a talented, lovely and a wonderful girl…She’s just got such a smart approach to her work and she’s a real artist.”
In the film, Hoult and Stewart live in a futuristic world where all human emotion has been eradicated.
“My character starts to get what they consider a sickness, where he starts to have nightmares and feel things and he’s like, ‘Hang on! What’s going on here?'” Hoult said. “And then he notices Kristen’s character and they start to develop this relationship in a world where people aren’t allowed to have relationships, where they don’t exist. It’s basically a love story.”
