• Vulture: “Drake [Doremus, Equals’ director] has a wonderful way of working those scenes,” Hoult told Vulture at the movie's Tribeca Film Festival’s premiere last night. “It’s a lot of improvisation. You’ll be certain that they’ll be literally no one in the room with you when you do long takes — 20 minutes, 30 minutes, an hour, who knows how long. They’ll just be the sound operator and the camera operator in there with us.”
When it gets down to actually filming those scenes, though, the process was surprisingly chill. “Drake will stick his head in occasionally and whisper a little note or something and then Kristen and I would carry on,” Hoult continues. “In a way, it’s very weird to do that type of scene. It was actually very weird the first time I watched the film. I was like, wow, that’s me, but I feel I shouldn’t be watching it.”
