Movie star Nicholas Hoult has enjoyed a successful career since he got his career-defining role in "About A Boy." The actor and his girlfriend, model Bryana Holly have an exciting life together but prefer to stay out of the spotlight. Here is a look at their relationship.


Nicholas Hoult is a talented English actor born on December 7, 1989, in Wokingham, Berkshire, England. He has starred in film and television productions both in the British and American film industries.

Hoult rose to fame as a teenager when he played the role of Marcus Brewer in the 2002 movie, "About a Boy." Hoult starred alongside Hugh Grant and was nominated for the Critics Choice Award.

As a teenager, Hoult received widespread praise for his portrayal of Tony Stonem in the TV comedy-drama series "Skins," between 1997 to 1998.

His adult acting career later kicked off with his role in the 2009 movie "A Single Man," but he is best known for portraying the character "Beast" in several installments of the "X-Men" superhero movie franchise.

Away from his blistering acting career, the English actor is notoriously private about his emotional life and is ever evasive when fielding questions on his relationship with model, Bryana Holly. Here is an inside look into the extremely private lives of the young couple.



Hoult began dating the stunningly beautiful American Lingerie model Bryana Holly in 2017, even though neither of them has confirmed that they are a couple. Nicholas Hoult's girlfriend Holly was born on July 12, 1993, and burst into fame after featuring on several issues of the Playboy magazine.

Before dating Nicholas Hoult, Bryana Holly had enjoyed success as a lingerie model with over 1.7 million followers on Instagram. She is currently being represented by Wilhelmina Models, one of the world's top agencies.


The lovebirds are incredibly private about their romance and rarely make public appearances together. The pair are conspicuously absent from each other's Instagram accounts, except for one photo which was posted by Holly.

Hollywood's notorious gang of paparazzi have also found the couple difficult to track as they have only been able to come up with a picture of the duo in public a few times.

Before his relationship with the mother of his child, Hoult famously dated award-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence. The two met while on the set of "X-Men: First Class" and dated between 2010 to 2014.


After their split, the duo continued to work together in other installments of the "X-Men" franchise, and featured in the 2019 "X-Men" film, "Dark Phoenix." While speaking on what it feels like working with his ex, the actor described Lawrence as family. He said:

"It's pretty similar to Skins [the UK teen series Hoult starred on from 2007 to 2008], we're a big family, we've been doing those movies since we were 20 years old."



In 2018, the "X-Men: Apocalypse" star welcomed his first child with girlfriend Holly. Confirming the news to PEOPLE, an insider said:

"They have kept the news under wraps, but are so happy and excited."


Fans of the British actor can be forgiven for not knowing about Hoult's new status as a dad. Unlike his colleagues in the movie industry who take to their social media accounts to inform their fans about such news, the talented actor and his wife have remained quiet, even refusing to reveal the name or gender of their child.

In December 2018, the couple was spotted with their baby for the first time as the proud parents stepped out, holding onto a turkey box as they prepared for their first Christmas together as parents.


The "Skins" actor during a 2019 interview, opened up about his new life as a first-time father. In his words:

"The levels of tiredness are extreme. No one warns you about it! But the level of love that comes with it outweighs everything."

Nicholas Hoult's baby's gender and the name has remained a mystery till date, and earlier in the year, Holly teased fans when she shared a picture carrying her baby in her arms but conveniently blocked its face with a love emoji.



Hoult got his breakthrough role as Marcus Brewer, starring alongside fellow English actor Hugh Grant in the 2002 movie "About a Boy."

Between 2007 to 2008, the British actor played the role of Tony Stonem in E4's "Skins," for which he gained widespread recognition.


In the years that have followed, Hoult has starred in several other movies including "Clash of the Titans," "A Single Man," "Jack the Giant Slayer," "Warm Bodies," "The Favourite," amongst several others.

Hoult also played supporting roles in the Box office hits, the "X-Men" series and "Mad Max: Fury Road." The 30-year-old British born actor is currently playing the role of Peter III in the Hulu miniseries "The Great."
