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 on Not Engaging With the ‘Toxic Parts of Hollywood’

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. …

I’m a romcom fan and Anne Hathaway and Nicholas Galitzine’s The Idea Of you ticks almost every box

[ad_1] The romcom is back – and this time, it’s for the 40-something woman who is realizing that life isn’t over just because you’ve hit a certain age.

Nicholas Cullinan: energetic leader tasked with British Museum overhaul | British Museum

[ad_1] Nicholas Cullinan, who has been appointed as the new director of the British Museum, was seen as the favourite for the job due to his reputation in the art world as an energetic leader. As the director of the National Portrait Gallery (NPG) since 2015, the 46-year-old art historian and curator oversaw the most ambitious redevelopment in the institution’s history, a £41.3m refurbishment and rehang of its collection. He was also instrumental in ensuring that the Portrait of Mai (Omai) by Joshua Reynolds, described as “one of the most important, influential portraits in the history of British art”, remained on public display. This experience impressed the leadership of the British Museum’s board of trustees, as reflected by its chair George Osborne’s tribute to Cullinan when his appointment was announced: “He has shown his capacity as director of the National Portrait Gallery to oversee both a major physical renovation and a compelling renewal of purpose in a way that doesn’t take sides, but brings people together – and won universal acclaim.” In his new role …
