Nicholas Hoult is lanky, adorable & newly single: would you hit it?

Here are some new photos of newly single Nicholas Hoult promoting his new film, Warm Bodies, in Rome. Warm Bodies is that tongue-in-cheek zombie movie where Hoult plays a zombie who kind of falls in love with a non-zombie girl played by Teresa Palmer. Warm Bodies comes out in America on February 1st – two weeks from now. Two long weeks of promotion in which Hoult is probably going to be asked about his breakup with Jennifer Lawrence. Last Friday, In Touch posted their exclusive on the breakup, and other sites followed with their own reporting – I got the feeling that Jennifer Lawrence’s rep went around confirming it. A “source” claimed that Nicholas and Jennifer split because “They’re young and grew apart… But they remain friends.”

Unfortunately, just one day later, Nicholas’s Warm Bodies costar Teresa Palmer posted some photos of herself and Nicholas on Twitter – you judge:

Does that look couple-y? Is Teresa marking her new territory and telling us that Nicholas is NOT single, that he just went from Jennifer to her? Or am I reading too much into it? It seemed like a territorial move given that the split announcement was barely 24 hours beforehand.

Anyway, I do love this boy. He’s adorable, and I never would have dreamed that the kid with the bad haircut from About A Boy would grow up to be this lanky, handsome, sweet looking dude. So, yes, I would hit it. And unlike some of the younger guys that I feel queasy about crushing on, I actually think Nicholas might be into an older lady.

…. Oh, god. A thought just came to me… Taylor Swift is going to try to get on him, isn’t she? AVOID HER LIKE THE PLAGUE, NICHOLAS.

    I would soooooooooo hit it. Love him.

    • RocketMerry says:

      Although, he seems like the kind of guy who would also be an amazing friend – and actually, probably a better buddy than BF.

      The pic is cute, though it looks a bit like movie promotion, since they are eating faux brains?

      • Cherry says:

        Is that what they’re eating? I was wondering what that was. It looks disgusting.

      • Kate says:

        She says on the twitter feed, with another photo of this, that it was for a “viral shoot for Warm Bodies”, whatever that is. But yeah, it’s a promo.

    • Amelia says:

      Bagging Tony Stonem is like every girl’s dream….JLaw missed out on a keeper.

  2. Considering Swifty asked JLaw to hook her up with Killer Eyes Coop, they’re probably close enough that poaching would be breaking the hos before bros code…unless he’s the price of JLaw’s failure to bring a fresh sacrifice to Swifty’s antique altar of kittens and cuddlefests. Dun dun dunnnnnn!

  3. ali says:

    Gaaaah he’s so pretty, I love it.

  4. pretty says:

    he’s really handsome. and very tall. gosh! but at first, i thought ‘why does he have a Jude Law forehead’….

  5. Good_as_Gold says:

    Don’t actually know who he is…
    But yes, that bird is marking her territory, that’s for sure…she may aswell just pee all over him whilst she’s at it lol

  6. hannah says:

    Big feet.

    • Elceibeno says:

      I’m sure you know big feet don’t mean anything

    • Red says:

      It’s all about the fingers… true story

      • Elceibeno08 says:

        Penis size has no direct relation to the size of your body. A midget can have a big penis, and a 7-foot man can have a small penis. SORRY to bust your bubble size queens.

      • Lauren says:

        A male friend of mine who was 5`5 with little hands and feet..was huge! He was drunk one night, and whipped it out to show me because his girlfriend did not want to have sex with him!(it hurt) I nearly Died.. told him to get a new girlfriend..he married her and they are still smiling after 14 years.

  7. Miss Kiki says:

    Gahh, I would hit it SO.HARD.

  8. ernie says:

    Since one day being JLaw’s bestie is a much stronger fantasy of mine, sadly no, I would not hit it. I wouldn’t dare jeopardizing our imaginary friendship.

    • Miss Kiki says:

      I would love to be JLaw’s BFF however when it comes to Nicholas Hoult and a few other select gentleman I have the morals of an alley cat. Shame, me and Jlaw would have had the best time.

  9. marie says:

    sure, I’d give it a go or two, or three, or.. you get the picture.

  10. Launicaangelina says:

    I’m really looking forward to this movie! A Rom Com Zom movie is just for me.

  11. carrie says:

    he looks like a manly Cillian Murphy or a mix between Cillian Murphy and Billy Corgan(a rock musician)

    i’m NOT interested by the movie whereas i’m crazy of zombies movies

  12. Elceibeno says:

    Hell yes

  13. LAK says:

    He’s finally filled out! Also, strangly looks like Hugh Dancy now!!!!

  14. Lauren says:

    He has grown into such a handsome young man. I remember him from back in the day when he was Tony on ‘Skins’. He has turned into quite the looker.

  15. Vivian says:

    Love him too; I think they are on the promotional tour together cuz she is his costar right? Unless there was chemistry while filming and that led to the break up….

  16. Mi says:

    They split because he is jealous of Jen’s career,so I don’t think he’s adorable.And Worm Bodies sounds like new Twilight.

  17. Lexi says:

    yes I would!

  18. Mrs. Ari Gold says:

    Love, love, love him.

  19. Leen says:

    I’ve always had a soft spot for him after Skins.

  20. Memory30 says:

    Dang I’d hit hard lol specially because he’s so young and cute.

  21. Adrien says:

    His hair suits him. Why are they eating brains?

  22. LadyBird83 says:

    Oh yes! Absolutely. I am hoping he’s the new it guy.

  23. gogoGorilla says:

    Er, seriously? He looks pretty effeminate to me, personally. (Caveat: I have no idea who he is, sometimes these actors become V-throbbers via their work.)

  24. Shira says:

    All I see when I look at him is ‘About A Boy’. Not a chance.

  25. hoya_chick says:


  26. Jess says:

    None of these pictures show his teeth. They are pretty gross. Bad teeth and oral hygeine has always been a turn off for me.

  27. JessicaAZ says:

    Uh, they are eating brains in reference to the movie, duh! Just a marketing ploy as they are out promoting it. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Oh, one more thing, I would so hit it!

  28. Amy says:

    I remember when I was younger and I saw About a Boy for the first time I thought that he was one of the ugliest kids I had ever seen. Then I saw him in X-men and my jaw just dropped when I found out who he was, I had not expected that the dorky kid from About a Boy would grow up to be such a hottie! And I believe that he is only going to get better looking with age because he has really great bone structure.

    • Lucija says:

      Oh come on, he was adorable in that movie.
      He seems so nice and shy in interviews. It’s a shame he and JLaw broke up, I liked them.

      • Amy says:

        Of course he was adorable, I can see that now that I am older, but back when I first saw the movie I was just a kid myself and I thought he was really ugly. I guess I was kind of superficial as a kid or maybe I just hadn’t learned to see past a bad haircut yet, lol 😉 Anyway I really like him, not just his looks but he seems really sweet and polite and and he has a great sense of humour. I also liked him and JLaw as a couple, very down to earth and private.. maybe they will get together again when they start filming the new X-Men movie 🙂

      • Lucija says:

        I was 9 when the movie came out, but I still thought he was cute.
        God, how strange it will be for them to work together again.

  29. mom2two says:

    No. I really don’t see the fuss over this guy.

  30. lylaooo says:

    noooo with swift!!! pleasee!!!! i ♥ on skins!!!

  31. I Choose Me says:

    Good looking young man. I don’t have even a clue about his personality though so I can’t say if I would or not.

  32. Elly says:

    Puberty works wonders!

  33. Reece says:

    No I’m too old. I keep seeing the kid from About A Boy. lol We could hang out.

    That looks like movie promo not couple-y things. They’re eating brains…He’s a zombie…Promo.

  34. Chordy says:

    I’m starting to like this Teresa Palmer girl. She’s basically what you get when you put a personality in Kristen Stewart.

  35. erica says:

    HOT. Damn.

  36. Lemony says:

    Yeah, I can definitely see Swifty going for him-probably to continue some sort of British streak

  37. Patrice says:

    Lol Kaiser 🙂 You KNOW homegirl is already plotting her move!

    I really started to like Nicholas in X-Men First Class but I truly fell for him once I bought the first season of (British) ‘Skins’ months later ❤ Tony was such a cad and Nicholas played him brilliantly!

    Sigh. British and those blue eyes…He’s dreamy but no, I don’t think I would hit it; he’s a little too young (I’m 29) and I liked him and Jennifer together too much. They were adorable 🙂 I WOULD pay to see J. Law break out her slut shank on Swifty though! Can you imagine?? 😀

  38. FassDaActor says:

    He’s in XMFC as Beast but I was too busy looking at Magneto and Magnetodong. He grow up to be a handsome young man. Just give him a few years. He’ll man up.

  39. oliveo says:

    Hoping he and Jennifer get back together when they start filming the next Xmen this year!

  40. Tommy says:

    Yes yes yes YES YES. A thousand times yes.

  41. Louise says:

    I used to watch “About A Boy” a million times so now I always see him as that geeky kid with the stupid fringe and crazy mom. So no, he can never be hot to me! He’s a child 😛 Like, fawning over Dan Rad, wtf. No.

  42. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    He’s a definite cutie, but too young for my tastes (what is he, all of 20??).

    I’m looking forward to seeing Warm Bodies. The book was good and the movie looks fun.

  43. Aria says:

    Nope. Sorry. Cute but not my type.

  44. Memphis says:

    …. Oh, god. A thought just came to me… Taylor Swift is going to try to get on him, isn’t she? AVOID HER LIKE THE PLAGUE, NICHOLAS.

    That cracked me up…and you’re so right!

    Run Nick, run!!!

    And no I wouldn’t hit it …only because I would then be worse than Demi Moore! Age appropriateness people! Even in fake land I can’t go there.

  45. Ms Kay says:

    Aww About A Boy… he’s grown into quote a cutie pie of a young man!

    BUUUUT to me the top place of “Puberty Works Wonders” belongs to the actor who played Neville Longbottom in Harry Potter, he was really unfortunate looking, and now fawking hell the He Who Shall Not Get A Girl grew into one of the hottest looking guys everrrrrrr!!!!

  46. Claire says:

    He is my new favourite.

  47. Gilmore says:

    Would I hit it? Do you even have to ask? My ovaries are whimpering at the sight of him so if that isn’t a confirmation for what he does to my biscuit then I don’t know what is.

    As for the Teresa thing.. it’s not really a thing honestly. They’e on a promo tour and she just posted a pic of them eating “brains” for it, thinking too much of it Kaiser.

  48. Jessica says:

    Thought hse was dating that australian guy from underworld?

  49. Caroline says:

    So pretty

  50. pato says:

    he´s so hot!! look at the size of his feet!!!!!!!!! yum yum

  51. JJ says:

    Too young for me, but he’s hot.

  52. Caroline says:

    Young Ethan Hawke!

  53. Tig says:

    I do like him, however- just saw the trailer for Jack the Giant Killer- and he’s Jack- and it looks awful. Good thing XMen is in the wings
