I think everyone was hoping that Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult would get back together after their rumored date in Los Angeles last week. After all, they’re going to be working together again and they seriously make an adorable couple! Alas, it looks like it’s not meant to be.
Despite dating almost three years [after they met on the set of X-Men: First Class], Nicholas and Jennifer broke it off last year before awards season. They later reunited for dinner last week, and everyone thought they were together again – especially because they both took great pains to leave from the back exit of the restaurant where they were dining. They were both present at the MET Gala and were rumored to be together at the after-party as well. However, People Magazine asked Nicholas about his relationship with Jennifer on the red carpet at the MET, and his response was, “We’re friends, we’re about to work on a film together, so …”
Yes, he’s purposefully vague. We might have taken that as a good sign if it wasn’t for the fact that he was spotted flirting it up with Riley Keough in NYC this week. They were spotted hanging out on Tuesday and they were also said to be flirting at various events, so everyone assumes that they are now doing it. Of course, they could very well just be hanging out as friends – after all, they did work on Mad Max: Fury Road as co-stars, so it might be all be innocent. However, these things rarely mean nothing in Hollywood, even if it breaks our J.Law/N. Hoult shipping hearts to say so.
Do you guys think that Nicholas Hoult has moved on? Are Jennifer and Nick just trying to avoid publicity by not being open about their reunion? Or are they just staying friends? Let us know what you think in the comments.
