Is Jennifer Lawrence going to dump Nicholas Hoult by the end of the year?

Jennifer Lawrence has been in a low-key relationship with Nicholas Hoult for two years. They met and fell in love while filming X-Men: First Class in 2010 – Jennifer played the young Mystique, and Hoult played the young Beast. I kind of loved that they got together – the child actor from About a Boy, all grown up into a lanky, artsy hottie, and he’s with the pretty American girl whose star is on the rise. What’s not to love? Well, according to Star Mag, there might be trouble. Noooo.

Jennifer Lawrence and her British boyfriend of two years, Nicholas Hoult, are en route to Splitsville, according to an insider. The tipster reveals that Jennifer and Nicholas, both 22, are living spearate lives – and friends fear the relationship “won’t survive to the end of the year.”

“They’re being pulled in different directions,” says the source. “He’s committed to spending time with his family in England before settling on his next role, and Jen is busy prepping for the next Hunger Games film,”

While the couple’s romance, which began on the set of X-Men: First Class, is on death watch, it doesn’t help that Jennifer is receiving pressure from her friends and reps to dump him.

“They’re saying that his stay-at-home habit is holding her back,” says the source. Considering that they’ll be spending the next five months apart, her pals might be right.

“It’s gotten her thinking that if he’s not willing to sacrifice even a little bit of time to be with her, why is she sacrificing her career to be with him?”

Well, I’m not going to get all Twihardy about this couple, but I will be disappointed if they split up. But I guess I wouldn’t be that surprised though – they’re only 22 years old. Breakups happen. Something to think about when we’re talking about J-Law’s nemesis (!) Kristen Stewart, also 22. Breakups happen, and it doesn’t have to go down in a flaming pile of public Mini-Coopering and angsty lip-biting.

You know what I’m really worried about, though? That Jennifer will dump Nicholas and then she’ll end up dating someone really awful, like John Mayer. Please be smarter than that, Jennifer.

    Well, this is celeBITCHY, so I’m just going to say it. Jennifer is WAY, way hotter than that guy is (I wouldn’t even consider him attractive). On top of that, she seems down-to-earth, funny, smart, and talented. She should be with someone better. There, I said it.

    • RocketMerry says:

      I was just thinking the exact opposite! Lol

      I like him much more than her, but I guess they were a nice enough couple. I can’t wait to see who he’ll get with next.

    • Fill Stone says:

      I love your attitude, he’s ugly therefore he can’t be worth jack. What about having a personality, being funny, kind or intelligent!
      I think your post says a lot about you and how shallow you are……

  2. jm says:

    Jlaw & Rpatt!

    • Anna says:

      Why would you punish her so much?
      She isn’t famewhorish, dirty and junkie enough for him. Besides he prefers to be treated like a doormat by a closeted lesbian.

    • Mia 4S says:

      Oh my God that’s brilliant! The melt down would be epic! Seriously I hope they don’t break up but if they do? There are several tabloid editors currently performing voodoo ceremonies to see that this happens.

    • Val says:

      Imagine the meltdown from the krisbians with that happened?! but i dont think that will ever happen and i dont think jennifer deserves the hate that will come from his crazy fans.

    • Liv says:

      I think he’s too full of self-doubt for her.

    • Mrs. B says:

      Jenbert!!! hahaha
      That would be awful, really. I dont think they match and she desrrves better. Kristen would died if Rob ever came close to Jennifer.

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      I was thinking the same pairing would be fantastic! She is into the British boys afterall. Wonder who could introduce them?

    • Fire says:

      The only thing i wanna see those 2 doing together, its an interview. It would be precious!

    • Anname says:

      I would like to see them in a movie together, but not dating.

    • Olivia says:

      I don’t want them to date. I want them to have a variety show together. They have the same self-deprecating, goofy sense of humor.

    • Virginia says:

      I would just love this to happen because if JLaw and KStew are actually nemesis’ then KStew would absolutely lose her mind.

    • Chris says:

      Yeah, I would love it if Rob and Jen got together. They seem to have some similarities in their goofiness but sweet and hardworking.

  3. Chicagogurl17 says:

    I dunno. They seem solid for being so young. If they do break up I imagine we won’t know about for months.

  4. NYC_girl says:

    OMG, he has hair on his chest now? He’s adorable. I love the British men so much… : (

  5. carrie says:

    it’s STAR MAG!!! every week Brangelina breaks! Aniston is pregnant! Kutcher comes back with Demi!

  6. Chatcat says:

    They are 22 and have been dating since they were 20. Probably has been a nice steady thing for each of them…”comfortable” and fun. But as each of them mature through their 20’s, especially in Hollyweird, it would be more surprising that they’d stay together more then 2 or 3 years.

    I really like her though, I watched Hunger Games last week on vaca with the 19 y/o’s and I’d have to say, I enjoyed it more then I thought I would. I couldn’t think of a more perfect actress today to fill the role of Katniss’s strong young woman character.

  7. M. says:

    If Jennifer Lawrence barely has time for Nicholas Hoult (and I’m going to go out on a limb and say that Lawrence truly is in
    love with this young man) than she definetly has ZERO time for the creep that is Mayer. The rumor comes from Star magazine…..need we say anymore?. Mayer tried and failed with Lawrence back in June (I think that was all blown way out of proportion anyway) I really cannot imagine any more attempts will be made by Mayer at this point. Jennifer Lawrence has an amazing career rolling right now, she’s just very busy as is Hoult so here’s hoping they can work it out. Whatever happens they both seem to be smart, grounded and have good people around them…they’ll be fine.

  8. Brown says:

    I love her, I do. But her hair is so, so awful. I don’t understand. Is it just me? I feel like I’m taking crazy pills.

    • Liv says:

      I like her hair.

      Do you think it’s real or fake? I mean since almost every actress is faking her hair, maybe it’s just because her’s natural?!

      • Brown says:

        Not sure, looks like she may have some extensions or something to me. Honestly I thought her dark brown/black shade as Katniss suits her better than the light brown/blonde she’s got going on now.

    • Jess says:

      I don’t like her hair either. It’s not just you. I think she has very fine hair and it goes limp on her, and I’m not sure there’s much she can do about it. When her bangs are styled, they look ok, but half the time they look a mess. If I were her, I would grow out the bangs, and have them as a swoop fringe, or not at all. She may have them for a role though, and in that case, there’s nothing she can do about them. So much of an actors hair depends on what parts they’re playing, and it’s totally out of their hands.

    • Migdalia says:

      I think I read an interview of hers before that commented that going from blonde to brown all the time has damaged her hair cause it would lighten up from the brown naturally in time. However it also tends to look flat and greasy at times. Love her and don’t want this story to be true. They seem like two low key people who BOTH don’t like to go out all the time anyway, and apparently she just spent a month with him in Africa where he’s filming Mad Max

  9. justez says:

    I really like this couple and know this source of this is Star they validity of it all is slim to none but their breakup would make me sad but it wouldn’t be insane. They are incredibly young. I just really like them because they seem so chill and he doesn’t seem to mind at all that she is definitely the more famous (which seems to be a big problem with Hollywood couples)

  10. keats says:

    What kind of friend is like ‘you should totally dump your hot English boyfriend!’ Get new friends!

  11. Jenna says:

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. This dude is NOT hot. Just…no.

  12. littlestar says:

    This is kind of off topic, but my hair stylist is a dead ringer for Jennifer Lawrence!

  13. littlestar says:

    (P.S. I also think Nicholas Hoult is good looking in an artsy brooding way.)

  14. Liv says:

    I don’t buy it. And there is another X-Men-film, so when they want to break up because they don’t see each other they would wait, wouldn’t they? Doesn’t make sense to break up because of that and then spend 3-4 month together…

    Apart from that it’s probably pretty hard for them – they are young and do have little time for each other, plus they are from different countries.

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      It’s HWood. Couples who actively work on projects together simultaneously break up, all the time.

    • Dani says:

      Thats probably because he is stucked in Africa shooting mad max until december. she visited him last month but now that catching fire has started shooting she cant visit him and apparently he cant visit her either. So they will spent a lot of month apart but that shouldnt be a problem cause like you said x-men is next for both of them and then they will have months to be together.

  15. M. says:

    I also seem to remember reading that Jennifer Lawrence visited Nicholas Hoult on the set of his new film (the new Road Warrior re-boot) in Africa for a month….that’s a LONG way to travel and stay for someone who is about to end a relationship with someone. I think that once again, Star is trying very hard to stir shit up about Jennifer Lawrence as well as her relationship with Hoult simply because she’s currently huge in Hollywood and is normal and in a quiet relationship where there is no drama. The kind of thing that drives the tabloids crazy so, they resort to the next best thing: MAKE SHIT UP.

    It has never worked (with regards to Jennifer Lawrence) and it’s not working now.

  16. Fire says:

    Star magazine is really unreliable source but its not hard to see from where this is coming from. They are really young and spend more time separate than together and between hunger games promotion tour and filming catching fire, she probably will spent more time with Liam and josh than with Nicholas which its odd and not good. But despite all that they genuinely seems to like each other and they try to make their relationship work, so they should be fine.

    • Migdalia says:

      Yeah I saw stories like these coming. For one she becoming “in demand” and now the world knows she has a boyfriend….one that has less star power than she. I call bs on this story as well.

    • Migdalia says:

      The worst thing is there are people going crazy on tumblr for Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer to get together because they have such “hot chemistry”. They are probably loving this story. Am I the only one who get straight platonic vibes from them? I think that was one of the oddest pairings in a movie I wasn’t buying what Josh was selling.

      • Fire says:

        No, you not the only one. Actually i only get platonic vibes from him. You can see clearly that he has a crush on her but she doenst seems to have for him. She treats him like a little brother. Add the fact that Josh seems to have crush in all his co-stars so i dont take this too seriously and i absolutly hate this pairing. i dont care if josh has peeta personality he isnt jennifer`s peeta. they dont have this romantic chemistry and i think this will be obvious when catching fire comes out. People will be disappointed. i love josh but he shoudnt have been peeta much less date jennifer in real life.

  17. serena says:

    Nicholas seems like a genuine good guy, I hope they wont’ break up, I like him a lot!

  18. F5 says:

    Is she related to some famous powerful person ih Hwood? Cuz she’s so fug, no way she beat other ppl for those roles.

    • Migdalia says:

      Aww that’s mean lol! I think she’s very pretty, her body is what most women in America rock around these days and sometimes HWood is not all about looks. Girl has talent…

    • Liv says:

      I don’t know if you were hiding under a rock or something but in film business she’s known for being the next Meryl Streep, the best actress of her generation – and that’s probably why they picked her for roles.

      • F5 says:

        LOL! Thx for the laugh:D

      • Kenny says:

        …wow the hype surrounding this girl astounds me. I like her and think she’s great…but next Meryl Streep? Emily blunt should get that before this girl.

      • Liv says:

        You’re welcome 😉

        But seriously, I’m just repeating what is common knowledge.

      • Lindy says:

        I mean, I just don’t see it. The acting is… ok. Not stellar. Not next-Meryl-Streep level. I was not wowed by her at all. And I also don’t think she’s terribly pretty or attractive. I’m just very bored by her.

      • Geekychic says:

        Lindy, +1! i just don’t get The hype. Next Meryl Streep??! Come on! That’s just…I honestly think you can’t say that after…what? 2
        Or 3 hw movies. Streep has decades of acting and awards under her belt. Blanchett, Swinton may end up bring in The same category as Streep, but claiming The title for 22 years old?
        Oh, and HE is hot. I Like The lean, intelectuall type with pretty, interesting face. Hoult has really grown up good!

  19. ichsi says:

    Ok, if there’s really any thruth in this story (i don’t think so) then the shoot for the next X-men movie is going to be FUN! Can you imagine those two and Fassy and Zoe Kravitz on a set together? Awkward!

  20. M. says:

    I have a hunch this story is bullshit…..and I LOVE that photo of Jennifer and Nicholas from X-Men FC!!….so adorable.

  21. i have agree with these people magazines love to make up stories to ruin peoples relationship . i think her and nicholas hoult will last forever she is just friends with josh and liam. i know that josh hutcherson has a crush on her but she does not feel the same for him so the magazines tabloids need to lay off.her and josh did not go out or date when the first hunger games movie came out.

  22. Kosmos says:

    She seems to have great acting skills and a promising career, but I have no idea how nice she is, or not….however, I do always have issue with the fact that she’s always showing her boobies…is this because she just got fakes? I’m not sure, but it’s getting tiring, that look. Right, her hair could use some attention more of the time. I’m sure it’s hard to keep a relationship going when they are constantly pulled in different directions to do their work.

  23. M. says:

    Oh for Christ sake!(LOL)!…..Jennifer Lawrence is not always showing her breasts. A few photos out of the million or so that have been taken does not constitute always showing her breasts. Even those photos were spread out within the last couple of years. Oh, and those are the original twins…..I have seen enough fake breasts to last a lifetime, and there’s nothing fake going on there.

  24. tmnt says:

    least surprising news of the decade.

    watch bradley cooper creep into the scene

  25. Margaret says:

    NOOOO i want them to stay together..
    Actually honeslty anyone’s fine with me as long as Jennifer’s happy. She’s my idol and she deserves the best. Josh Hutcherson would be a good match for her though, considering they have such great chemistry together. I hope Jen stays with him though. They were always cute as a couple and 2 years is a lot

  26. D Fleming says:

    Personally,everybody is putting all this hate on N Hoult just because some people expected JLaw to hook up with Mayer.Seriously?! Y’all are gonna call her a closeted lesbian?!
