Nicholas appeared in last night’s episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, where he talked about his film, Equals. Check out a short clip from the interview below.

Drake Doremus’ sci-fi romance “Equals,” which follows two forbidden lovers on their journey to find freedom in a futuristic society that prides itself on having eradicated emotions, had its emotional L.A. premiere at ArcLight Hollywood on Thursday night.

The film, which stars Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult, along with Jacki Weaver, Aurora Perrineau and Tom Stokes, bowed at the Venice International Film Festival last year.

“I was never really a sci-fi nerd, but I was always fascinated with the genre,” Doremus said. “I thought it was an interesting landscape to set a love story and try to doing something warm. Most sci-fi films to me are very cold and very distant and I wanted to make something that was the opposite of that.”

Stewart and Hoult complimented Doremus on his unique approach to helping spark chemistry between the onscreen lovers during rehearsals. “It wasn’t about learning lines,” Stewart said. “It was about breaking down barriers and getting to know each other.”

Hoult still found many complexities in playing a character that “isn’t meant to feel” and “understanding how that changes throughout the movie.” “It’s kind of like these characters have been alive and know how to do everything a human knows how to do, but they don’t feel,” he said. “So, it’s like a baby feeling emotions for the first time, but not knowing how to process them.”

A24 and DirecTV acquired U.S. rights to “Equals,” which is set for a July 15 theatrical release.

So Nick, what were your Glastonbury highlights?

Firstly, we missed the traffic on the way down which was a result. Then the Prince tribute from Hot Chip at Block 9. Muse were epic. Madness were, well, madness…

Is this your first Glastonbury?

No. I came the year Jay-Z played, which was awesome. We ended up last night in the Coliseum, that place is wild. Is it called the Coliseum? Or maybe it just looks like a Coliseum and is called The Arena. Anyway it was utter anarchy.

Are you on a break between film projects?

Yes, I’m chilling at the moment. We finished a movie about the writer J.D Salinger, Rebel in the Rye, a few weeks back. He had a fascinating life. I didn’t know anything about him. I’d heard of his writing but reading the script and doing the research for the movie I found out so many things about him that were intriguing. It also helped explain how he managed to create such wonderful pieces of art.

You’re a stylish man. What are your festival essentials?

I try and pack as little as possible actually. It’s just an absolute bonus not being in a tent, to be perfectly honest. We’re in one of those yurts and they don’t do that tent thing of being damp at night and like an oven in the morning.

Anything else you can’t do without?

A pair of Hunter wellies. Obviously. Although I’m truly surprised I haven’t fallen over yet. The suction from some of that mud is like a black hole.

Best Glastonbury moment thus far?

Just bumping into random people, chatting while watching bands. It’s lovely down here.

Where you on site when you heard about the referendum decision?

Yeah we found out Friday.

Did you actually vote?

Yes I did. I voted by post.

For remain or for leave?

I voted for remain.

So you were disappointed?

Yes. When we heard the news we were all pretty upset about it.

Can you see Boris Johnson being our next Prime minister? 

I mean, strangely, it kind of looks quite likely doesn’t it?

Speaking of exiting sticky situations how do you plan on escaping the quagmire?

A bungee cord might be best. Or a system of winches and pulleys.
