If you don't already know, Elle and Nicholas play spouses-turned-enemies in the witty historical fiction from Hulu titled The Great (also known as The Great: An Occasionally True Story). The show started its first season back in 2020 with great success, and so to celebrate the second installment, the program's stars sat down with Buzzfeed Celeb to see if they passed the co-star test. And while their characters on the show, Peter III of Russia and Catherine the Great, may loath each other to bits, Fanning and Hoult couldn't stop giggling during their Buzzfeed segment.

Elle and Nicholas started their little quiz by proving that they're so in sync with one another that they can communicate telepathically. Well, at least that's what they think. When asked for Elle's full birthday, the 31-year-old actor seemingly pulled the answer out of thin air and wowed his co-star in doing so. "I think I have psychic powers!" Nicholas explained in amazement after guessing April 9th correctly. "I was sending it to you," Elle laughed in response, imitating some telepathic signals of her own. But by the looks of it, the mystic powers only went one way, as Elle missed her fictional husband's special day by about a week.

The questions then went on to need-to-know BFF facts, including middle names and dressing room must-haves. And Elle got her redemption by immediately pointing out that Nicholas's staples included tequila and his teddy bear. "And my Nintendo," Hoult jokingly added. And Elle? Well, according to Peter III, Catherine the Great's trailer smells good all the time because of candles and has that feminine touch thanks to a decorative pillow he gifted his castmate with a close-up of his face on it. "You are on it today!" Elle laughed in response.

Safe to say that this pair aced their test, and while they may hate each other on set, as soon as someone yells "Cut!" these two are giggling away. You can check out the full segment above to learn more about these Hollywood stars!
