Jennifer Lawrence & Nicholas Hoult are officially a couple again: good news?

Jennifer Lawrence

I was just scrolling through the cast listing for X-Men: Days of Future Past, and besides the usual suspects, I completely blanked on the fact that Anna Paquin and Ellen Page are also in the movie. Oh, and poor Evan Peters is playing Quicksilver too. But before I go completely off-topic in this post, let’s get to the couple of this story, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult, who broke up late last year after a two-year, long-distance love affair.

In the aftermath of their relationship’s demise, the tabloids set JLaw up with Bradley Cooper while Nicholas partied with Riley Keough (who really has a knack for landing in the tabloids herself). By May of this year though, JLaw and Nick were seen hanging out together as friends, and now that they’re back working together in Montreal, they’ve thrown caution to the wind and hooked up again:

Nicholas Hoult

Back with her ex-man! Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult have rebooted their romance. A source tells Us Weekly that the pair — who split in January after two years of dating — fell for each other again while reprising their roles as mutants Mystique and Beast in X-Men: Days of Future Past.

“They started the shoot in April as friends, and then one day they just started kissing,” says the source. “One thing led to another and they hooked up. All her old feelings came rushing back. Now they’re fully back on.”

L.A.-based Lawrence, 22, and U.K. resident Hoult, 23 — who had broken up because the distance became difficult, according to sources — have been inseparable on location in Montreal. An insider previously told Us the two “always eat lunch together.” Hoult also joined the Silver Linings Playbook Oscar winner and her family on a stroll around Montreal on June 2.

On July 13, the two browsed the racks at a local HMV record store. Reveals the insider, “Jennifer has been telling people that she’s in love again!”

This is great news, of course, because this couple seems mature enough (despite their relatively young ages) to not shove themselves down our collective throats when they’re together, and then when they break up, they’re always strangely friendly and completely civil to each other in the media. So I think that JLaw and Nick will be together while they continue to film this X-Men followup, and then maybe they’ll break up again after the tour is over and they go back to working on other projects and hardly seeing each other at all. Then they’ll get together for a third X-Men and start exclusively banging each other again, and the world will rejoice. It’s certainly not the worst pattern in the world now, is it?

    He is so so cute. I find her overrated and overproduced, but I like them together.

    • Anna says:

      His face weirds me out. In a creepy way.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Agree with everything you said, Spooks. I love him and while I like her, I find her extremely overrated.

      Really like them as a couple though. Glad to see Nick dating a girl who at least has a personality.

    • Abra says:

      I don’t find him attractive in the slightest, and if he wasn’t famous, most everyone else wouldn’t, either.

    • Rachel says:

      I think it’s weird that a lot of people think she’s a good actress. She’s not terrible at best… I honestly thought The Hunger Games was going to be awesome because she was so well-received, but she was just a small step above Kristen Stewart as Bella. Yuck.

      I like these two as a couple though. Cute.

      • Spooks says:

        She is a good actress. She was very good in Winter’s Bone. I think she’s overrated because her SLP performance was not Oscar-worthy, and she’s mediocre in X men. I didn’t see Hunger Games, so I can’t tell.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        I think it’s unfair to critique an actor for their performance in movies like “Twilight”, “Hunger Games” and almost any action movie franchise.

        At some point you have to concede that even the most seasoned actor can only emit so much emotion when the writing is intentionally one-dimensional and well, comic book-y.

        I don’t understand what people’s expectations are when they go into those kinds of movies. For me, I expect to be entertained and I know that the actors’ performances will be the minimum needed to make the movie work.

        If you take a movie like Twilight and actually read the script or lines on IMDB, you realize pretty quickly that there’s not much substance there.

        But yeah, she was great in Winter’s Bone and ok in SLP, not, as they say, “Oscar-worthy”, but the Oscars are a crock of shit anyway.

      • Liv says:

        I think she’s super talented because of the fact that she manages to make me believe she’s a totally different person in every film.
        Winter’s bone, Hunger Games, X-Men, Silver Linings? She showed me a different girl every time. And though I know some things about her and her private life I always believe her in her roles. This is rare. In my opinion just Meryl Streep and Daniel Day-Lewis are able to do so too. (There are probably others as well but none comes to my mind right now.)

      • angie says:

        may be her acting is not up to your taste?*shrugs*
        But since she has been receiving major acting awards since her winter bone’s days from movie critics and from her own peers alike that are professionals in the industry , i would consider them a better judge of what is ‘good’ acting than random people on the internet.
        And I thinks IMO she has enormous charisma and screen presence in her movies and I thought she was astounding in the Poker House, Winter Bones and SLP. JMO.

    • angie says:

      I actually think Jennifer Lawrence is an enormous talent and has tons of charm as a person, I definitely get why she is popular just by seeing her interviews and such. I don’t think she is overrated or overproduced, it’s all about different opinions I guess.
      I don’t care about Nicholas Hoult, don’t get the fuss about him at all.He is average at best and his looks are nothing to write home about, there are dozen of more beautiful male actors out there.JMO.

    • Bijlee says:

      Oh my gosh I agree. She is overrated and overproduced. That’s a great word for it. I remember when I saw her in Winter’s Bone she was getting so many accolades I went on her wiki, it was a tongue bathing if there ever was one. After Hunger Games and SLP I went on her wiki again…my god. It’s like her publicist wrote it for her.

      She’s made out to be this prodigy and incredible gift to the acting world. I like her, I really really do. But I can’t stand the relentless PR to make her so relatable, funny, and friendly. She’s a talented blonde, blue eyed, young, skinny girl who is being treated as if she’s revolutionized Hollywood. How much has she really?

      Again I like her. But once an actor is shoved down my throat as someone incredibly gifted, talented, sweet, friendly, funny, smart but not too smart I start to get annoyed because it REEKS of people controlling an image. And it’s really damn annoying. Even people I know who don’t read any kind of gossip were asking, “Who is this Jennifer Lawrence and why am I supposed to be in love with her?”

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        You said everything I feel about her and much better than I could have.

        I do like her, just not as much as everyone else seems to.

      • Amelia says:

        I think it goes without saying that she is overrated. I think even she would admit that. I’ve watched a few of her films and she’s so mediocre. She seems nice enough but she is so aware of her image. I also don’t like how she gets a pass when she does things that other actresses are called obnoxious for.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I think the reason that she’s being pushed so hard is that she can actually ACT. She’s what 22, 23 and she’s made it in terms of her talent, not because of how good her boobs look on screen. And she’s not like one of the Disney starlets trying to shake their image, by posing nude or playing sexy roles for the purpose of being “grown up”.

        I think that she needs to make her pr team back off a lot though. But I can get that she just lets them do whatever, as she does seem to be like a nice, focused young woman. Heck, I still do things that I don’t really want to do.

        An example: yesterday I spent four hours scrubbing my grandma’s walls, so she can get them painted. I was perfectly happy to be a good granddaughter. But what got me was that she called ME, while my aunt (who doesn’t work), her boyfriend, and her four kids (two of whom are old enough to scrub walls-11 and 15) are LIVING in her house, and have been for the past few weeks (as construction is going on on their street). Yeah. I was a little bit ticked that the people staying for free in the house couldn’t be bothered to do something for free (or clean up after themselves, as the house was trashed when I got there).

        So I can get what she’s going through. I kind of wanted to say no, when my grandma asked because of my aunt, but I always feel guilty if I say no to helping with something, or leaving a mess behind. But yeah, she needs to get a backbone and quit going along with them, because the only reason I like her is because she seems so normal and goofy and in awe of all the celebrities she meets.

    • Reese says:

      Agreed. I don’t get the hype either. I think she has a funny personality that reminds me of a lot of the fun girls I went to college with, and she is a cute girl, but people act like she is the greatest thing to walk this earth. I find her acting to be above average, but nothing incredible. Winters bone was fantastic, best performance to date.

      I had no idea what people were talking about when the said SLP was a great film. I didn’t even KINDA like it, and her performance was incredibly overrated. As for people talking about her being stunning, well….I don’t find her to be any sort of great beauty, but she has a killer body.

      My underwhelming feelings for her aside, I’ll take her over that no talent, expressionless, sleeps with married men Kristen Stewart ANY DAY.

  2. Lb says:

    I love them together. I hope it’s true. I don’t think they really wanted to break up in the sense that they dislike each other. Just that distance, work was getting in the way. I imagine it will happen like that again but I’ll enjoy them playing basketball together as long as it lasts.

  3. Liz says:

    There seems to be a solid amount of friendship and respect for each other and neither has been seen with other partners (even though the tabs seemed keen to link her with everyone), so not very surprising.

  4. Charlotte says:

    The lady in the background of the third photo it totally slamming Jennifer’s trousers, which the guy is loving.

  5. Zozo says:

    I think they are adorable together and yes, they do seem to be very mature (considering how young they are!)so, good for them. It’s nice to see such a young couple with so much respect for each other, even if they end up separating again, one gets the feeling that they always remain close and that’s lovely.

  6. spiderkitty says:

    A couple weeks ago, someone in ONTD referred to her as having “farm aura”. I cannot unsee now. It’s like, it doesn’t matter what you put her on, she looks homely.

    • Kaye says:

      If by “farm aura” they mean fresh and unspoiled . . . okay.

      And I would gladly look as homely as she does every single day.

    • elkiddo says:

      Well, she may not be a great beauty, but she has a really banging body and totally great attitude..

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      I think that she can look homely/bizarre because her stylist team hasn’t seemed to figure out that she doesn’t have the face for dramatic makeup. She looks best in a very light, natural look….she looks great with no make up on. If they would stop trying to slap her into every frilly, lacy, and beaded princess gown (and she would stop letting them) she would look a million times better….although I don’t like the outfit (the one with the rainbow crop top) I think she looks very beautiful and fresh in it. She looks good in spite of the outfit, not because of it. I love her sunglasses.

      • Lark says:

        She looks like a young Renee Zwelleger. Jennifer is pretty and has a fantastic body, but they try and make her some Angelina Jolie type of sexpot with the heavy makeup and it just doesn’t work on her. I think the main issue is the magazines keep pushing her as some great beauty, when in reality she isn’t anywhere close to Charlize or Angelina’s level. I feel like the magazines and PR machines aren’t just satisfied with “cute” and “pretty” anymore and have to push each new “it” girl as “the most beautiful whatever”. I wish they would embrace her talent more instead of her looks.

    • magpie says:

      No I think she is a better than average looking girl who is not that photogenic. Anne Hathaway can be really photogenic at some angles, but girl is homely when taken straight on!

  7. spiderkitty says:

    OMG those pants. I HATE them.

  8. Arjuna says:

    Damn, that’s a nice looking couple….nice to know that they have rekindled their relationship, they seems to be a lot of mutual respect for one another.

  9. Talie says:

    I would’ve liked to have seen who else she would date, but it’s probably hard for her to trust with her new position.

  10. Maria says:

    “They started the shoot in April as friends, and then one day they just started kissing,”

    am i the only one who thinks of bad fan fiction? Jlaw now has FEELINGS too after sex!

    i wish them all the best, i just cant believe it because of the way its written.

  11. Arjuna says:

    And that’s “there” not “they”.

  12. mom2two says:

    Good for them. I don’t find him attractive at all and don’t see the big deal about him either. But, I have mad respect for two people who don’t go out of their way to pimp their relationship to further their careers. So if they are back together, good for them and I hope they got over whatever issues drove them apart the first time.

  13. scottiee says:

    Do not like this guy: Love her; she is great and fine young actress. Too bad things did not work out with B-coop.

  14. c says:

    he makes me feel funny down there. god, I really am not the crush-on-celebs type, but man this dude just duzzzz itttt for me. and i’ve never even seen him act. i guess i like her, so i’m…happy? about this? except i’d give my first born for a night of sexytime with him. those eyes, those lips. mmm it hurts.

  15. Apsutter says:

    He’s cute but way too pretty for my tastes. She looks fantastic in that black dress!

  16. madpoe says:

    Nick brings out the cougar in this girl. Must click outta here.

  17. mia girl says:

    Awwwww, young love. I’m rooting for them.

  18. Side-Eye says:

    He’s so…weird looking. Like I don’t know his head is shaped wrong or something.

  19. the original bellaluna says:

    I think she looks fabulous in that black & white dress, but what the fug with that other ensemble?

    Glad they’re back together and hope they can make it work this time.

  20. Abby says:

    Awww I love them together. I feel he is the right guy to keep her grounded. From all that I know about him, he isn’t using her fame for his own use. They keep little distance when in public which is good for both.

    I wish them all the success and happiness together. Btw is it just me or an American girl-British guy combo always looks good.

  21. Amelia says:

    A fan met them in Canada and said that Nicolas left their restaurant before Jennifer and she was upset about it. Seems like they have their own drama still.

  22. dj says:

    Very good, nice couple. As close to “normal” as actors could get. I love them both because I like their work but also because they have not said anything (that I am aware of) disparaging the other in the press.

  23. Lark says:

    I really love them as a couple. I always thought it was timing more than anything when it came to both of them. I think they’ll last for quite a while.

  24. Lexi says:

    I like them both, they are a cute couple, i hope it works out for them
