Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence has reportedly been getting cozy with her X-Men: Days of Future Past co-star Nicholas Hoult on set lately. The rumor has been deemed gossip worthy by the media because these two actually used to date.
Hoult (who plays Hank McCoy/Beast in the film) and Lawrence (Mystique) have reportedly been doing a bit more than joking around together on set lately. Us Weekly reports that these two may be rekindling their romance on the Montreal set of the upcoming X-Men epic.
The pair first met up on the set of X-Men: First Class and maintained a low-profile relationship for two years before splitting up in January. They’ve been catching up and spending a lot of downtime together lately, with some publications wondering if these two are bound to reconcile.
“They frequent each other’s trailers, and they always eat lunch together,” a tattler said. “It’s just a friendship now, though they’re getting a lot closer.”
The two joined other cast members James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender at the Canadian Formula One Grand Prix on June 8, where they posed for photographs together. Later that night, they attended an HBO boxing event together.
Just one week before, the couple were seen walking around Montreal with Lawrence’s brother. Weeks before that, they were spotted dining together in Los Angeles.
A curious piece missing from our knowledge of these two is why in the world they ever broke up in the first place. They seemed to break up amicably, with some theorizing that their distance and busy schedules forced them to call it quits. So the ingredients for a genuine reconciliation might yet be there.
“My boyfriend is honestly my best friend, and hopefully I’m his best friend, too,” Lawrence gushed of Hoult last year. “He’s my favorite person to be around, and he makes me laugh harder than anybody.”
Seems like that’s still true.
Sound off! Do you think that Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult make a good couple?
