Nicola makes her directorial debut in her new movie 'Lola,' which she also wrote and stars in
As Nicola, 29, spoke with The Hollywood Reporter recently about making her directorial debut with the new film Lola, she joked that Brooklyn, 24, "is actually really upset that he did get cut from his one little cameo."
"He had one line, 'Hi,' but he kept saying it in a British accent and he was staring directly into the camera," she shared of Brooklyn's would-be acting appearance. "I was like, 'Oh God, we have to move on, good lord.' "
"So, Brooklyn ended up on the chopping block," she added.
However, Nicola also credits her husband for helping her make her directing dreams come true. "But I couldn’t have done any of this without him because he was such a massive support to me every day on set which I’m so appreciative of," she continued.
Lola released in theaters on Friday. Nicola wrote, directed and stars in the movie as a 19-year-old woman in 2002 who "is desperately working to save enough money to get her little brother, Arlo (Luke David Blumm), out of their toxic home dominated by their mother, Mona (Virginia Madsen)," per an official synopsis for the film.
Brooklyn was not Nicola's only family member who worked on the film; her brother Will Peltz has a small role in the movie. Nicola even shared with THR that she couldn't grant Will a larger part in its narrative since the siblings could not play romantic interests.
"I wanted my brother to have a much bigger part, but the thing is, to anyone who might not know he’s my brother they might be thinking to themselves, wait, why didn’t she end up with that guy?" she told the outlet. "That guy seems great and he’s so handsome. But, like, okay, that would not work out."

Nicola and Brooklyn, the son of soccer legend David Beckham and former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, have been dating since October 2019. Nicola made their relationship Instagram official in January 2020, and the couple revealed they were engaged in July of that year. The couple tied the knot in a wedding ceremony held on Peltz's family estate in Palm Beach, Florida on April 9, 2022.
Nicola's mother-in-law Victoria, 49, and brother-in-law Cruz Beckham, 18, joined her and Brooklyn at Lola's recent premiere, which Nicola told THR "meant the absolute world" to her.
"For Victoria to fly out and for Cruz to be there and support me, it means so much to me. I was talking to everyone all night and I didn’t even sit down once," she told the outlet.
Lola is in theaters now.
