It’s been barely a week since Nicholas Hoult and Jennifer Lawrence went public with their split after two years together, but the British actor doesn’t seem to be wasting much time moving on.
On Wednesday, he was spotted cozying up to Italian actress Tatiana Luter at an after party in Rome, the entertainment blog Lainey Gossip reported. Splash news captured photos of the two dancing together with Hoult’s arm tucked around her waist and laughing as Luter leaned over and whispered into his ear.
The 23-year-old former “Skins” actor has been globe-trotting to promote his most recent film, the Zombie flick “Warm Bodies,” in which he stars along Teresa Palmer and John Malkovich, while Lawrence has been equally busy with appearances on the “Late Show with David Letterman” and “Saturday Night Live,” and collecting a Golden Globe award for her performance in “Silver Linings Playbook”
Hoult’s recent flirtations also come on the heels of rumors that Jennifer Lawrence is dating her “Silver Linings” co-star Bradley Cooper. Although Cooper and Lawrence have a 16 year age difference (he is 38, she is 22), ethe two were apparently convincing enough as love interests Pat and Tiffany in “Silver Linings Playbook” and were quickly recast together again another film. “Serena,” set to hit theaters in 2013, stars Cooper and Lawrence as husband and wife George and Serena Pemberton in North Carolina during the Great Depression.
Cooper told CNN “[Jennifer Lawrence] is incredible… I’ve been so lucky to do two movies with her back-to-back. ... She’s the best. I feel like I got in on the ground floor. I’ll be lucky if I work with her again,” he added.
And Lawrence has similarly raved about working with Cooper on multiple occasions, sparking rumors that the two were more than just friends.
“The first time we did a scene together you took my breath away, and the first time I watched the movie you broke my heart and put it back together again,” Lawrence told Cooper during her acceptance speech for Best Actress in a Comedy at the Critic’s Choice Awards.
Cooper also reportedly split from on-and-off girlfriend Zoe Saldana earlier this month, however, he has already batted away speculation that the two are dating.
"We've done two movies together. If it didn't happen by now, it's not going to happen. No no no no no. Not even close,” he told the New York Post. “First of all I could be her father. I love her to death. She's amazing but no.”
