Nicholas Hoult appeared on a podcast on Valentine’s Day where he talked about life as an actor, including where he went to school and how he deals with social anxiety.
Hoult grew up in the village of Sindlesham in Wokingham, Berkshire, and shot to fame at just 12-years-old when he starred alongside Hugh Grant in About a Boy.
The actor has now been in the film industry for 20 years, but he’s a relatively private person and doesn’t often discuss the depths of his life.

However, on the podcast Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard, the celebrity shed some light on what his life has been like ever since he shot to fame all those years ago.
Now 32, the A-lister has a three-year-old and discussed how his life has changed following his son’s birth.
Hoult said that it’s “really fun” being a dad and revealed that life as a father has made him realise that having a kid requires you to be a “different level” of fitness.
On the podcast, Hoult and Shepard also talked about what it was like for him when he was growing up.
Dax noted that Hoult was “basically raised by women” as he grew up mainly around his sisters and his mum.
He then said that he wishes all men could be raised in an environment with lots of women and Hoult agreed with this sentiment and said: “It’s been good for me.”
According to Hoult, it helped as he also used to do ballet and of course, theatre, which was a big passion of his.
As a young boy, Hoult had grown up in the leafy suburb of Wokingham and he noted it was a “pretty nice area”.
When he was a child, he attended school in Berkshire before he went on to study at the Sylvia Young theatre school in London.
However, at age 14 the actor decided to go back to Berkshire and study at Church of England secondary school Ranelagh School in Bracknell.
