Jennifer Lawrence was photographed chatting with ex-boyfriend Nicholas Hoult at the Golden Globes last night, so maybe she’ll end her dating dry spell by rekindling an old flame. If Jennifer didn’t score a date with Nicholas, perhaps she can blame Kristen Stewart for stealing her steely-eyed ex’s heart before she could win it back – Kristen and Nicholas were recently spotted leaving a hotel together.
According to Us Weekly, best actress winner Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult took advantage of a Golden Globes commercial break by getting out of their seats and chatting with one another. Los Angeles Times reporter Amy Kaufman managed to snap a stealthy photo of Jennifer and Nicholas deep in conversation.

Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult decided to call off of their five-year-long relationship for the second time in the summer of 2014, and they both rebounded with famous romantic partners. Jennifer Lawrence yo-yo dated Coldplay frontman Chris Martin for a few months before ending things for good last July, and the Sun reports that Nicholas Hoult was spotted spending time with Glee actress Dianna Agron early last year.
However, Nicholas has most recently been linked to Kristen Stewart. On January 4, Kristen and her Equals costar were photographed together at the Bowery Hotel in New York City. OK! Magazine reports that Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult had a few drinks at the hotel bar, and they were having such a good time together that they stayed out until 2 a.m.
It’s possible that Hoult and Stewart simply became close pals while working on Equals together, but it’s also true that the hot young thespians both have a habit of hooking up with their costars – Hoult met Jennifer Lawrence while working on X-Men: First Class with her, and Kristen Stewart fell for Robert Pattinson while playing his Twilight love interest.
Kristen Stewart experienced the awkwardness of promoting a movie with her ex during the Breaking Dawn – Part 2 press tour, and Jennifer Lawrence will soon go through something similar when she and Nicholas Hoult reunite to promote X-Men: Apocalypse. Luckily, Jennifer and her ex have plenty of practice interacting with each other post-split – they had to film the mutant superhero movie together, after all. Last May, X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer shared photographic evidence that the exes were getting along just fine on the set of the film.
“Back with the #thekidsinthehall #jenniferlawrence #mystique #nicholashoult #beast #Xmen #XMenApocalypse,” Singer captioned the photo above.
It’s important to point out that chatting with one another at the Golden Globes is a slightly different situation than working on a movie together – Nicholas Hoult and Jennifer Lawrence weren’t interacting at the awards ceremony because they were getting paid to do so. However, it’s possible that they’re only on speaking terms now because they managed to turn their failed romance into a friendship when they were forced to work together. In other words, their chat shouldn’t be seen as a sure sign that they’re dating again.
But there is a slight chance that they’ll revisit their romance now that Jennifer Lawrence is single again. As the Inquisitr previously reported, the actress has joked that she’s a real-life X-Men mutant whose superpower is growing her hymen back, and she’s endured such a long dating dry spell that her magic maidenhead is now completely intact. When Glamour asked Jennifer if it’s true that she hasn’t been dating because no guys ever ask her out, she revealed that this isn’t the problem – she simply has a hard time finding guys that light her fire.
“No, it’s that I’m picky. I feel a spark very, very rarely,” Jennifer said. And it’s really only about spark for me. Not really anything else. You should see some of the people I find attractive. [Laughs.] You’d be shocked.”
According to the actress, her strangest celebrity crush is Curb Your Enthusiasm star Larry David. The 68-year-old funnyman has already said that he’s much too old for 25-year-old Jennifer Lawrence, so who knows? Maybe Jennifer is so desperate to go out with someone she feels a spark with that she asked her ex out at the Golden Globes.
