Hmmm, haven't we seen this cutie pie darlingface before? He looks familiar, right? Well, he's THAT little boy from About A Boy! Yep, let it sink in. Let those memories flood back into the brain and DING DING DING. YOU REMEMBER. His name is Nicholas Hoult. And About A Boy is very much About A Man now. And a very dapper, well-dressed man. OK, wait, now we feel kind of gross. Are we allowed to called him a hottie yet? Are we being PEDOS? *quickly Googles his birth date* Oh, WHEEWWW. He's 21. Coast is clear. WE THINK NICHOLAS HOULT IS HOT, AND WE DON'T CARE WHO KNOWS IT. You also miiigghtt have seen Nicholas in the UK version of Skins (not to be confused with MTV's Skins!) playing bad boy Tony Stonem OR as Beast in the recently released X-Men: First Class. Either way, we were SUPER excited when we stumbled upon this Esquire UK spread of Mr. Hoult in some crisp, clean summery fashions! His dark green cotton blazer, orange polo and dark jeans (all by Prada) paired with burgundy Doc Martens is SO '90s meets '70s in a way we're totally in love with.

GULP. Sorry but.... THOSE LOUIS VUITTON PANTS. That crotch bulge could hit someone in the EYE. It is almost indecent. And, aw, look. Nicholas has a softer side in this black and white photo. He's all thoughtful and pensive and CHISELED AND HOT. We love how he scrunched up the sleeves on his Dunhill jacket. We're never opposed to seeing more skin. Well, you know, just on Nicholas. (Note to Jennifer Lawrence, his reported girlfriend: We know he's taken. We just want to APPRESH his hotness, as we know you do every single day. So, um, keep it real, girl. We luh you.)
