Nicholas Galitzine Admits Feeling ‘Like A Cut Of Beef’ Since Rise To Fame

Nicholas Galitzine Admits Feeling ‘Like A Cut Of Beef’ Since Rise To Fame

[ad_1] Nicholas Galitzine is definitely the man of the moment right now, but the British star has opened up about the toll his new-found fame has taken on him. The actor has been on the rise in recent years thanks to his roles in Red, White & Royal Blue, Mary & George, Bottoms and, most recently, The Idea Of You with Anne Hathaway. His various romantic roles have quickly landed Nicholas heartthrob status, but he’s admitted he’s not always found it easy to be seen as such. “I think the most important thing to me is that I’m taken seriously as a performer,” he shared in a recent interview with GQ Hype. “I’m not gonna ask you to cry me a river here, but it’s been difficult being part of a conversation that feels very much like I am a cut of beef at a meat market,” he said of the overly objectifying attitude that can pervade his work and personal life. “I think that being my defining feature is something I’m constantly terrified of.” …

Nicholas Galitzine Says He Feels ‘Guilt’ For Portraying Multiple Queer Characters

Nicholas Galitzine Says He Feels ‘Guilt’ For Portraying Multiple Queer Characters

[ad_1] After rising to fame by playing queer characters in the rom-com Red, White & Royal Blue and the drama miniseries Mary & George, Nicholas Galitzine is clearing the air about his own sexuality. “I identify as a straight man,” Nicholas said in a new British GQ interview published on Wednesday. “But I have been a part of some incredible queer stories.” The British actor admitted he felt torn about taking on so many LGBTQ+ roles because of his heterosexuality. “I felt a sense of uncertainty sometimes about whether I’m taking up someone’s space, and perhaps guilt,” he explained. “At the same time, I see those characters as not solely their sexuality.” Nicholas with co-star Taylor Zakhar Perez in Red, White And Royal Blue Jonathan Prime/Prime Video The Idea of You star went on to clarify that the characters he plays on screen are totally separate from who he is off the clock, adding: “I am Nick, and I’m not my role.” Speaking with HuffPost UK, the English actor explained the “plethora of reasons” why …

Bye Timothée, so long Pedro: Here are 2024’s new internet boyfriends

[ad_1] Dev Patel has long held a place in the internet’s heart, especially for those who watched his heart-wrenching performance in Amazon Prime’s Modern Love — often cited as proof he should be batting off requests to play romantic leads. Now, with Patel’s much-hyped directorial debut Monkey Man, he finally is! I’m kidding — Monkey Man is a bloody revenge story about a brutal underground fight club, laced with childhood trauma and suppressed rage. So, yeah, not so romantic, but on the plus side, he’s topless a lot. [ad_2] Source link

The Idea of You Director on Changing Book Ending for Film

The Idea of You Director on Changing Book Ending for Film

[ad_1] [This story contains spoilers to the The Idea of You film on Prime Video.] The Idea of You starts like any other romance movie: A boy and girl meet, fall in love, and maybe have a swoon-worthy ending. But what happens when the girl is a 40-year-old woman, the boy is a 24-year-old boy band member, and fame and public scrutiny bring obstacles to the journey that might’ve been leading to a happy ending? The Idea of You centers on 40-year-old art gallery owner Solène Marchand (Anne Hathaway) who, after being forced to take her daughter and friends to Coachella after her ex-husband bails on the plans, unexpectedly meets Hayes Campbell (Nicholas Galitzine), British front man to the uber-popular boy band August Moon. Despite Solène being unfazed by the pandemonium and allure of the young singers, their meet-cute eventually turns into a steamy romance, but not without the hiccups of fame and attention that come as a result. Though the film, adapted from Robinne Lee’s 2017 novel of the same name, offers a Notting …

Nicholas Galitzine on Not Engaging With the ‘Toxic Parts of Hollywood’

[ad_1] Nicholas Galitzine is opening up about how he manages the extra attention that comes with his more recent rise in fame. The actor, who has found stardom in recent years with his roles in 2022’s Purple Hearts, 2023’s Red, White & Royal Blue and now, Prime Video’s The Idea of You, told IndieWire that it’s “all about setting boundaries.” “I have my non-negotiables, my family, my loved ones, my friends. I always try and carve out time for them,” he explained. “I’m not really engaged with the more toxic parts of Hollywood that I think do exist out there. And none of my friends who are in the industry are as well.” The Bottoms actor added that he tries to focus on why he wanted to become an actor initially, noting that he loves “the job for what it is, which is a creative endeavor.” “Then otherwise, my life is just incredibly normal, and I have my things that I like doing,” he said. “I like walking around. I like exploring. I love nature. …

Anne Hathaway Says She Was Asked to Make Out With ’10 Guys’ During Audition: ‘Now We Know Better’

[ad_1] Anne Hathaway has been in Hollywood since she was the tender age of 17, and as she takes more control behind the scenes of her latest projects, the 41-year-old actress is changing the way things happen during pre-production. In an interview for V Magazine, Hathway opens up about the development of her upcoming film, Prime Video’s The Idea of You. The mother of two serves as a producer and star of the film, in which she plays Solène, a 40-year-old divorced mother forced to chaperone her teen daughter’s trip to the Coachella Music Festival.  In the movie, based on Robinne Lee’s popular novel of the same name, a chance encounter with Hayes Campbell — the 24-year-old lead singer of the most popular boy band in the world — gets Solène wrapped up in a whirlwind romance. Choosing the actor to portray Hayes was a significant moment in the development process, a process that Hathaway was determined to make comfortable for everyone involved.  Anne Hathaway and Nicholas Galitzine on Prime Video's 'The Idea of You' poster art – Prime Video “Back in …

Anne Hathaway in Michael Showalter Rom-Com

Anne Hathaway in Michael Showalter Rom-Com

[ad_1] The Idea of You, the new romantic comedy from Michael Showalter (The Big Sick), begins like many of the best in its genre: a meet-cute so silly it endears.  This one happens in a trailer that Solene (a delightful Anne Hathaway) confuses for a restroom during Coachella. The almost-40-year-old divorcée wasn’t supposed to be in the desert surrounded by neon-clad adolescents shrieking at the top of their lungs. If Solene had it her way, she would be on a solo camping trip somewhere in the woods with only her thoughts. But her ex-husband Daniel (Reid Scott) bailed on his plan to take their 16-year-old daughter Izzy (Ella Rubin) and her friends to see an old favorite band August Moon, an international group modeled after One Direction. Now, Solene is stuck navigating a sea of youthful energy and looking for a place to pee.  The Idea of You The Bottom Line The movie equivalent of cotton candy. Venue: SXSW Film Festival (Headliner)Release date: Thursday, May 2 (Prime Video)Cast: Anne Hathaway, Nicholas Galitzine, Ella Rubin, Reid …

Nicholas Galitzine Discusses His Many Queer Roles

Nicholas Galitzine Discusses His Many Queer Roles

[ad_1] Whether you know him from his star-making turn in Red, White and Royal Blue, or from the likes of Purple Hearts, Bottoms or his upcoming movie with Anne Hathaway, The Idea of You, there’s no denying that Nicholas Galitzine’s star is on the rise. The 29-year-old actor is currently starring in Sky drama Mary & George alongside Julianne Moore. The historical series follows the rather raunchy story of Jacobean social climbers George Villiers and his mother Mary, who charmed their way into the good graces of King James I. Speaking to HuffPost UK, Galitzine described his character as somewhat of a power-hungry, sexual dynamo, declaring that “there’s no one he won’t seduce if it leads to power”. In truth, Galitzine has played a cross-section of characters in his career so far, including dumb jocks, recovering drug addicts and sensitive princes. One thing that seems to re-occur, however, is queerness. “There’s sort of a plethora of reasons for this”, the actor tell us. “One, I have so many friends within the community, and I know …

Mary & George on Sky Atlantic review: Julianne Moore is scandalously good in this sexy, sweary period drama

Mary & George on Sky Atlantic review: Julianne Moore is scandalously good in this sexy, sweary period drama

[ad_1] Though the costume drama has long been the arena of filth and fantasy, many such full-throttle shows followed in The Favourite’s wake. From sweary Channel 4 series The Great (created by The Favourite writer Tony McNamara), the real-as-owt BBC adaptation of Shane Meadows’ Yorkshire-set The Gallows Pole, House of the Dragon with its horrible birthing scenes, Netflix’s Fleabag-esque Persuasion, and Bridgerton’s steamy bedroom scenes. And as another big budget, prestige shagathon hoves into view it’s hard not to feel the heart sink. Indeed, in the first ten minutes of Mary & George, Sky Atlantic’s new seven-part period drama, there’s a birth, a hanging, some lusty looks, a sharp exchange of words, a funeral, and, of course, a sex scene.

‘Red, White & Royal Blue’ Feels Like a Political-Rom-Com Throwback

‘Red, White & Royal Blue’ Feels Like a Political-Rom-Com Throwback

[ad_1] Of all the politics–adjacent pop culture to come out of 2004, one of the uncanniest coincidences was the release of the two separate major-studio films about the rebellious teenage daughter of a fictional president. In January of that year, Chasing Liberty followed Anna Foster (played by Mandy Moore) on a trip to Europe, where she maneuvered out of her father’s clutches and into the arms of an undercover Secret Service agent. And First Daughter, released that September, followed Sam MacKenzie (Katie Holmes) to her first semester of college in California, where she, too, maneuvered out of her father’s clutches and into the arms of an undercover Secret Service agent. The late 1990s and early 2000s were a boom period for this type of frothy romantic comedy, set in a real-world political context without much real-world politics. In Chasing Liberty, First Daughter, and the 1998 made-for-TV classic, My Date With the President’s Daughter, the demands of the presidency serve mostly as a justification for the fathers’ heightened protectiveness over their teenage girls. And in movies …
