Nicholas Hoult wanted to be a 'dolphin' when he grew up. The 'X-Men: First Class' actor always thought he had a 'cool' ambition and was disappointed when he realised he would never achieve his dream. He said: 'I never even thought about being an actor when I was a kid. The thing I really wanted to be was a dolphin. 'I thought that would be the coolest thing and was completely, completely committed to that for some time. Then I realised that you couldn't be an animal when you grew up, so I had to sack it off, unfortunately.' The 23-year-old star shot to fame when he was just 13 years old, appearing opposite Hugh Grant in 'About A Boy'. »
