Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult’s January breakup doesn’t seem to be sticking. The former couple, who dated for two years before ending their relationship just before the 2013 Oscars, sparked rumors that they might be on-again after they were spotted grabbing dinner together in Hollywood Monday night.
According to Hollywood Life, paparazzi photographed Hoult and Lawrence walking out of the back entrance of The Little Door restaurant in Los Angeles, Calif., on Monday night and leaving in Lawrence’s car. Lawrence was reportedly clutching a copy of “Anna Karenina.”
The 22-year-old “Hunger Games” actress reportedly called it quits with Hoult, 23, earlier this year because of long distance and hectic filming schedules on both ends. While the relationship seemed to have its logistical difficulties -- Hoult still lives in Berkshire, England, while Lawrence is based out of Los Angeles -- it came as a big shock to fans as Lawrence had gushed about their relationship just a few months prior, in an interview with Elle magazine.
“[Nicholas] is honestly my best friend, and hopefully I’m his best friend too,” she said. “He’s my favorite person to be around and makes me laugh harder than anybody. … We can eat Cheetos and watch beach volleyball and we turn into two perverted Homer Simpsons, like, ‘Oh, she’s got a nice ass.’ I never thought we’d have such different opinions on asses.”
But just three months since their breakup, the two will likely begin spending a lot more time around each other again. Both Lawrence and Hoult are expected to begin filming for “X-Men: Days of Future Past” in Montreal. The newest “X-Men” film, which is the seventh in the series, will be directed by Bryan Singer, who also produced Hoult’s recent film, “Jack the Giant Slayer.”
Lawrence recently wrapped filming on “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” while Hoult is expected to begin filming the thriller “Dark Places,” with Chloe Grace Moretz and Charlize Theron.
