Oscar nominee Kodi Smit-Phee is making red carpet fashion plans, saying he’ll keep it tasteful but make a statement

HOLLYWOOD — At 25, Kodi Smit-McPhee has become the youngest of this year’s acting nominees to run for the Academy Award in Gold. He represents one of 12 nominations for “The Power of the Dog.” The power of his acting brought him here.

In director Jane Campion’s “The Dog,” Smit-McPhee plays a quiet, smart, and resilient character who deals with an angry, unfriendly cowboy played by Benedict Cumberbatch. Smit-McPhee approached the role with the idea of ​​giving an understated performance.

“Yes, it’s up to me with Jane, or any director I work with, to be told to turn it up. For some reason I’d rather be told to turn it up than turn it down,” he told Smit McPhee.

Smit-McPhee said he was often told he was mature for his age.

“Even my mother used to call me ‘old soul’ because I came out of the womb with so many wrinkles on my hands. And yes, it’s a recurring theme,” Smit-McPhee said.

He’s enjoyed his awards season wardrobe, however, and shows up at events in looks he cherishes.

“I teamed up with Bottega and they really helped me create some really cool, tastefully bold looks. I like making a statement, but not so much when you’re like, ‘Oh, what’s that boy doing?’ I like to keep it tasteful,” said Smit-McPhee.
