Nicholas Hoult's big-screen success hasn't earned him more credibility with his friends.

The Jack The Giant Slayer star told the Radio Times that appearing in About A Boy, with Hugh Grant, didn't cause him any problems at school but that things had changed.

"No-one at school really cared. I get more stick from my mates now," he told the magazine.

"They love it! They' ll sit there in the cinema, watching me, and p*** themselves."

But the Warm Bodies star added: "I'd much rather have that than people going, 'Wow, that was amazing'."

Nicholas, 23, who recently dated Jennifer Lawrence, said there was one downside to film work, telling the magazine: "I get fed up being told where to go, what to wear, what to say, how to say it, where to look, what time I'm waking up, what time I'm leaving, what time I'll be home."

He said of playing Jack in Jack the Giant Slayer: "There was a lot of looking up at a tennis ball, 20 foot in the air - and that's the giant."

The star, who is set to begin work on a big-screen adaptation of Sebastian Faulks' Birdsong, is finally ready to move out of his parents' home, saying: "I'm looking for my own place."
