Nicholas Hoult will be forever grateful to his About A Boy co-star Hugh Grant - because the actor introduced him to golf.
The A Single Man actor shot to fame playing a geeky 12 year old in the 2002 movie, and he's revealed his famous co-star handed him an expensive present when filming wrapped - a set of golf clubs and a series of lessons.
Hoult subsequently developed a love for the game and credits Grant with inspiring his passion.
He says, "Hugh Grant's a very good golfer. He got me started playing the game. At the end of About A Boy, he bought me golf clubs and some lessons. I still play when the weather's nice, but I haven't played with him. I'm not good enough."
