Jennifer Lawrence & Nicholas Hoult are probably back together: yay?

By the end of 2012, the tabloids were reporting that Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult’s two-year relationship was under significant strain, and that both of them were ready to move on. Perhaps this was helped along by Harvey Weinstein, who pushed Jennifer HARD for her Oscar campaign (and it paid off) and Harvey thought it would be easier to sell Jennifer if she was single, and he even played around with the idea of putting her with Bradley Cooper to keep the publicity machine going. So, by January of this year Jennifer and Nicholas Hoult were done. The breakup seemed relatively drama-free, considering their ages – Hoult made a point to talk her up in interviews, and Jennifer never said a bad word against him either.

Maybe they knew the breakup would be temporary considering they would soon be working together on the X-Men sequel. And that’s exactly what’s happened. The sequel to X-Men: First Class has begun and it looks like Hoult and Lawrence are back together. They were photographed together two nights ago as they left a restaurant in Hollywood – go here to see the photos. According to the Mail, they “attempted to avoid being photographed by leaving The Little Door eatery via the rear exit, but were snapped as they got into the actress’ waiting car… Jennifer and Nicholas tried to keep their heads down as they made their way to the vehicle, but appeared in good spirits following the evening together.” Jennifer was also clutching a copy of Anna Karenina. Which does not bode well for this renewed romance.

Anyway, she’s 22 years old and he’s 23 years old. This really doesn’t have to be forever. But they can be great friends and lovers and play this on-and-off game for a while, and I’ll be fine with it. I think they’re such a cute and lovely couple. I love it when a funny American girl gets with a lanky English boy. It’s like a real-life rom-com.

  2. marie says:

    they’re cute together, so yes-yay!

  3. Pixie says:

    Yay! I was really hoping they’d get back together, I love them!

  4. SmokeyBlues says:

    I find him blatantly unattractive. When I watched Skins UK I would just laugh at the idea that he was the hot one on the show. What am I missing here?

  5. Yellowshaba says:

    I loved skins and yes he was always meh to also, But he’s slowly growing on me I don’t know what it is and I don’t know why. But I like Jennifer Lawrence and I like them together:)

  6. loma says:

    Please let this be true – Yaaaaay!

    Also, they look alike.

  7. NM9005 says:

    Hoult is like fine wine…mmm. I need to rewatch Skins again!

    I’m off the Lawrence love bandwagon after reading some of her homophobic quotes. Done with her.

    • Kezia says:

      What homophobic quotes? Genuinely confused & asking here!

    • Laura says:

      she isn’t homophobic, she supports glaad and gay rights, hugged Ellen, fully admits to drawing naked pictures of women. she just has a problem with putting her foot in her mouth. but she isn’t homophobic at all, none of those comments had any malicious intent.

      • marie says:

        You are right, she’s just blatantly ignorant and that’s (apparently) a reason to celebrate her.

      • NM9005 says:

        That’s like saying ‘I’m not racist, I have a black friend!’. Oh please…

        Sure JLaw talks out of her ass a lot but that’s not a reason to dismiss what she said. It means it is in her head and she does have a stereotypical view of certain people, whether malicious or not.

        It’s telling you say SHE’s not homophobic so you know her WORDS are. It’s undefendable really but hey, you can always give it a go and see how it turns out I guess.

        She’s just an actress, not exactly an activist so showing up to some events and acting all ‘sheesh, aren’t I goofy and ignorant’ isn’t building a strong case for the things she says in other interviews.

        Another overhyped blonde generic actress, I’m done with her. I wish I din’t know tbh but I can’t ignore it, now that I do know.

        @Marie: people have low standards these days. Even being aware of the impact of her words and maybe think 2sec about what you’re going to say is too much to ask these days. Afwul that people are aware of those homophobic quotes yet shrug it off because they’re convinced she’s just goofy or ignorant (but admitted to reading classic books?). Gosh, they don’t understand she’s just a phony act like the rest of them. Maybe harmless but still phony.

      • MisJes says:

        I agree with you Laura.

        I think her comments were ignorant, yes, but to call her homophobic is taking it way too far. I believe that there is no genuine malicious intent behind her words.

      • xxx says:

        Oh for God’s sake. I’m so sick of this world where we all have to be 100% PC 100% of the time. How boring. Lighten the hell up. Everyone says things on occasion without thinking them through – that doesn’t mean they are racist or homophobic, sexist or any other “-ist”. It just means they grew up in a culture that is still evolving and changing to be fairer and is by no means perfect, and sometimes those little un-PC sayings sneak in as a result. That does not mean they are said with hatred, snarkiness or malicious intent. I have loads of gay friends who make much worse comments than this, and laugh loudly when their straight friends say the same. She’s not perfect, she’s young, she has foot-in-mouth, speak-before-you-think syndrome and she has never been PC. I love it. I prefer this to some over-trained bland person that would never, ever say something they were coached not to.

  8. Lb says:

    I love them both so I hope they’re at least friends. If more, yay for them. They both seem normal, relative to most celebrities anyway.

  9. Lucretia says:

    He’s not very attractive (she is) but they’re the right age. I wonder if they really ever broke up at all? Or maybe just good friends, which would be even better.

  10. Emma says:

    The On/Off relationship kinda makes sense considering their age. And they’re both very busy, i expect them to break up and get back together few more times.

  11. Ali says:

    Re: Jennifer was also clutching a copy of Anna Karenina. Which does not bode well for this renewed romance.

    I don’t understand the statement. I actually read the novel and there are two central love stories. The secondary love story is about reconsiliation so it would be a good sign. I don’t care for either of them but I love that book!

    • MisJes says:

      That is true, not to mention the success or failure of their relationship would depend on more important things than what book she is currently reading *eye-roll*

    • Laura says:

      its not Anna Karenina, its actually a parady novel called Android Karenina. look it up.

    • Jessica says:

      I think the “does not bode well” comment was meant to be imply: “if she’s bringing a book along on their date, that’s not a good sign”; because if she felt the need to bring a book along on their date then she knows he is not interesting enough to hold her attention the entire time they are out together. I doubt that comment had anything to do with which novel it was. Or at least that’s how I read it.

  12. Jordan says:

    Big yay!…such a cute couple. I saw some outakes of their scenes from X-Men FC and they both had that hit by a thunderbolt look for one another….so adorable.

  13. M says:

    I know I shouldn’t type this but they are the anti Rob and Kristen.

  14. The Original Mia says:

    I like them both, so I hope it’s true. If not, I hope they can remain friends since it doesn’t seem like it was a bad breakup.

  15. Jcamp11 says:

    The book is actually Android Karenina–a satire. Book looks brand new, so I’m guessing it was a gift from NH. I love them together.

  16. Karen says:

    She’s been looking rough lately. A whirlwind Oscar campaign and press stalking can do that to anyone. Maybe he’s can add some balance and support in her life. They made a cute couple.

  17. Miller says:

    I love them both but i think I’m even more excited for skins series 7 to come out this summer than them getting back together (and they’re definitely one if my favorite celebrity couples)….i really wish he was going to be back for that. but good for them! Really!

  18. Jordan says:

    @Karen: Actually, I was thinking the opposite (LOL!)…considering the stress level must have been incredibly high, Lawrence looks great to me. I do get the feeling that they balance each other out, and that she has missed being with him. Anyway, there’s my 2¢ worth of opinion/speculation for the day (LOL!).

  19. GoodCapon says:

    That was Jennifer in the fourth picture? For a second there I thought “What’s Kelly Clarkson doing in a JLaw post?”

  20. moon says:

    Yay! They’re such a good looking couple with great personalities. Please let this one work!

  21. Heathers says:

    I had a dream last night that I met her and took a photo with my phone. totally exciting and boring at the same time. :)

  22. mia girl says:

    Neve really thought they actually broke it off… I think the “break up” was only public facing so, as Kaiser pointed out, Lawrence could focus on winning awards and be positioned as the young fresh single girl. Plus, he had his two first major movies coming out during that time…. wouldn’t hurt for him to appear single to try to build heartthrob status.

    I think they were together in the background the whole time.

    PR or not, I like this couple.

  23. Deedee says:

    He reminds me of Jon Reese Myers in those pic. It’s the piercing blue eyes that grab me.

  24. serena says:

    Yay! I like this couple a lot, he’s so lovely!

  25. Athena says:

    Lovely looking couple….I like that they have continued to stay in touch regardless of whether their relationship is romantic or not.

  26. Kate says:

    He looks like he’s in the closet. She does nothing for me. Her face is weird.
