Nicholas Hoult Talks Son and Sex Scenes

Nicholas_Hoult_GQ

Nicholas Hoult‘s interview with GQ Hype is great, but the photo shoot is so odd. Why do his feet look dirty?! In the article, he breaks his silence about being a dad (“I remember there was a scene in The Kelly Gang where I had to hold a gun to a baby’s head. My son was around the same age and it was really difficult in many ways”), and talks about how his sex scenes in The Great are much different from the ones he did on Skins (“We had a few intimacy co-ordinators who would come along and help out with that, which is a great thing. This is the first job I’ve had that on and it’s a very positive change in the industry. It’s almost like having a stunt co-ordinator. They make sure everyone is comfortable in terms of what’s happening and agreements of what can happen, but also choreograph it in a way that makes sense for the story and what it is you’re trying to tell”).

Mel Gibson was trending today because Winona Ryder gave a new interview and said “Mel Gibson was smoking a cigar, and we’re all talking and he said to my friend, who’s gay, ‘Oh wait, am I gonna get AIDS?’ And then something came up about Jews, and he said, ‘You’re not an oven dodger, are you?'”  I’m not sure why everyone is shocked by this, since Ryder told the same story a decade ago. Of course, his camp released a statement today denying it.  I mean, he’s on record saying “The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world” and telling his girlfriend “If you get raped by a pack of n******, it will be your fault” … but sure, deny it.

-In the same interview, Ryder also talked about working with Francis Ford Coppola on Bram Stoker’s Dracula, and how he directed her male costars to yell mean things at her when she was required to act in terror and shock. “To put it in context I’m supposed to be crying. Literally, Richard E. Grant, Anthony Hopkins, Keanu [Reeves] … Francis was trying to get all of them to yell things that would make me cry, but Keanu wouldn’t, Anthony wouldn’t. … It just didn’t work.”

-In response to an old interview about her time on Bad Boys II that was trending this week, Megan Fox responded by calling her interactions with Michael Bay “inconsequential” compared to her other “genuinely harrowing experiences in a ruthlessly misogynistic industry.”

-In a new interview with Variety about submitting her Black Mirror episode for Emmy consideration, Miley Cyrus talks about getting sober (“I’ve been sober sober for the past six months. At the beginning, it was just about this vocal surgery…It’s really hard because especially being young, there’s that stigma of “you’re no fun.” It’s like, “honey, you can call me a lot of things, but I know that I’m fun”).

-I love how Britney Spears is confusing/delighting everyone with her Instagram posts.

This story about The Ringer’s staff being frustrated about the lack of diversity is a real bummer, as I’ve followed a lot of those people from the Grantland days. Bill Simmons‘ response when asked why the podcast hosts weren’t more diverse was “this isn’t Open Mic Night,” which is pretty damn rich considering his 14-year-old daughter is a regular contributor to the Ringer Dish pod.

-Someday I hope we get the full story about how Archie Panjabi and Julianna Margulies‘ feud on The Good Wife got so bad, the show had to film their final scene separately and use special effects to splice them together. But today is not that day. When asked about the rumored behind-the-scenes tensions in an interview with The New York Times, Panjabi demured, telling the interviewer, “You’re very naughty, Jessica.” When pressed, the actress very tactfully answered: “I completely understand why everyone asks about it. Everybody I meet asks me about it, in some roundabout way…I’ve said what I’m going to say.”

It just becomes invisible to you, and you forget that you have 12 massive penises at your front door. And this delivery guy came and I just completely forgot. He kind of had to like bring something in and he was like knocking against the cocks as he was coming in and I suddenly saw them again for the first time in ages. I was like ‘Oh god, I’m so sorry’ and he just looked me dead in the eye and went ‘It’s art. Never apologize for art.’ ”
