When it comes to love, Nicholas Hoult has learned to lower his expectations.
The British actor shared his thoughts on relationships and soulmates during an ET interview alongside his Equals co-star, Kristen Stewart.
"The first time you fall in love you're so mental that it's difficult to recall anything," Hoult told ET's Katie Krause before explaining why his views on love haven't changed much over the years. "I think you just grow up and become more aware of yourself and other people and that changes it a little bit."
"Maybe my expectations lowered a little bit," Hoult admitted with a laugh as Stewart jokingly chimed in: "He's like 'I need to scale down in terms of what I’m thinking. Bar has lowered, now I'm going to find my soulmate!'"
