Getting naked for work is getting very tiring for actor Nicholas Hoult.
On the set of True History of the Kelly Gang, the actor had an uncomfortable encounter with a Shetland pony, which was only made worse when he was told the animal had never been inside and even its handler didn’t know how it would react.
In a new interview with GQ Hype magazine, Hoult said, “I guess this character is a very relaxed sexual predator or whatever, but it’s never comfortable being naked on set, around 15, 30 or 100 people that you don’t know.”
“In my mind, I’m like, ‘This pony just got lured in here with a carrot. I’m sitting here naked. It’s looking at me like I’m a tasty snack.’ I froze…”
“I’d like to stop having to get naked at work.”
For Nicholas’ role in The Great, which features Elle Fanning, the producers hired an intimacy coordinator and he praised bringing in the advisor because it makes for a much more “comfortable” experience on set.
Hoult said: “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.”
Back when Nicholas was just 17-years-old, and was featured on the UK series Skins, and said that experience was much more uncomfortable and “scary.”
He said: “At that time, you were a child to do a job, and had done for a long period of time at the moment, but it is also a strange position to be put.”
“It is not that there have been bad experiences, or other … is much more of a ‘Just do this as quickly as possible, so that you can feel good again and continue with the performance that I like.’ A lot of the acting is pretty terrifying.”
