Lawrence and Hoult ‘just friends’
Jennifer Lawrence and ex-boyfriend Nicholas Hoult are not dating again, despite being spotted having dinner together last week.
The former couple were spotted dining out together at Los Angeles restaurant The Little Door earlier this week. Their repast sparked reports of a romantic reunion.
But Radar claims the meal was nothing more than a benign interaction between friends.
“Jennifer and Nicholas are not back together, their dinner date was innocent,” a source told the website. “They are still very close friends, despite their break up, and regularly text or phone each other from across the pond.
“With Nicholas being in Los Angeles for business meetings, it gave them the chance to get together and catch up on what’s going on.”
Nicholas, 23, is based in London, while Kentucky native Jennifer is lives in Hollywood.
The pair met while filming X-Men: First Class and are now shooting the movie sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past.
“Both of them are so busy with work right now that they just don’t have time to commit to a relationship,” the source added. “But they still want to remain close friends, simply because they just love each other’s company so much.
“They’re not ruling out getting back together in the future, but for the moment they are just very close friends.”
Jennifer and Nicholas split in January after two years of dating.
