Peltz acts alongside Kumail Nanjiani and Murray Bartlett in Hulu's "Welcome to Chippendales," which was released in 2022.

In a 2023 interview with Elle, she told the magazine about one of her favorite memories from the show.

"Finding Dorothy's look for the first time ... like, putting it all together — the makeup, the wig, the costume," she said. "When I got into the costume I really felt changed," she continued.

She's set to direct and star in an upcoming film, "Lola James," for which she also wrote the screenplay.

According to Deadline, Peltz wrote the screenplay for — and will star and codirect — "Lola James," a movie set in 2002 in middle America. Academy Award-nominated actress Virginia Madsen will also star in the film, which is in post-production, according to IMDb.

"I can't wait to show you guys Lola James," Peltz wrote in an Instagram caption in 2021.


One of her brothers is actor Will Peltz, who appeared in an episode of "Euphoria."

In addition to having played Luke Kasten in "Euphoria," Will Peltz is known for his role in "Unfriended," a 2014 horror film.

Nicola and Will Peltz have almost-matching tattoos that pay homage to their family's Eastern European Jewish roots. Their tattoos are written in Yiddish. Nicola's tattoo means "family first" while Will's reads "family."

"I love big families, I love being around my family and all my siblings, it's like, my happy place for me," Peltz told Elle in 2023.

She met Brooklyn Beckham at Coachella music festival in 2017, although they didn't start dating until a couple of years later.

Coachella is known to be stacked with celebrities, so it's no wonder the couple met at the annual California music festival. But they didn't have an instant connection, according to Peltz.

"We didn't get along, we just didn't click… I had a boyfriend, he had a girlfriend," she told Tatler in 2022.

It took Beckham — a former model, photographer, chef, and the oldest child of David and Victoria Beckham — and Peltz years to finally get together. They reunited at Leonardo DiCaprio's Halloween party in 2019, Glamour reported, and they were later spotted having a late-night dinner together after the event.

"I can't tell you what happened [at the party] but from then on we were inseparable," Peltz told Tatler.

In 2020, she and Beckham announced they were engaged.

Beckham, now 24, and Peltz announced their engagement via Instagram in July 2020. "Two weeks ago I asked my soulmate to marry me and she said yes," he wrote in his caption.

"I am the luckiest man in the world. I promise to be the best husband and the best daddy one day," he continued.

Just months later, in January 2021, Beckham debuted a tattoo dedicated to his fiancée — a transcript of a love letter Peltz had written. She signed the letter as "your future wifey."

The couple got married at her father's $79 million estate in Palm Beach, Florida, in front of A-list friends in April 2022.

In April 2022, the couple got married at the Peltz's family estate in Palm Beach, Florida. At their wedding, they took photos exclusively on flip phones, according to the couple.

According to Elle, the wedding cost almost $4 million.

British Vogue shared photos on Instagram of the bride and groom in their wedding attire. Peltz wore a custom Valentino gown for the occasion. She initially hoped to wear a design by her mother-in-law, Victoria Beckham, but ultimately the designer's "atelier couldn't do it," Peltz told Variety.

Their 500-strong guest list included celebrities such as Serena Williams, Eva Longoria, and Gordon Ramsay, People reported.

In an interview with Elle, Peltz described newlywed life as "amazing" and described Brooklyn as her "best friend." "Being able to live life by his side has been amazing, because I feel like even if I'm going through something bad I have him by my side," she said.

The couple reportedly lives in Los Angeles.

"I see myself being a mom in five years," she told Elle in 2023.

"Brooklyn wants a lot of kids," she said, adding, "Yeah, I would love a big family really."

She recently supported her in-laws at the release of the Netflix documentary "Beckham."
