Nicholas Hoult has reportedly told Jennifer Lawrence he wants to give their romance another shot.
The former couple sparked reunion rumours after they were spotted dining at a Los Angeles restaurant earlier this month. It has now been claimed that the pair also spent time together at the glitzy Met Ball in New York City last week, with Nicholas eager to give their relationship a second chance.
"Jennifer and Nicholas didn't walk the red carpet together, but they met up as soon as they were inside and spent the whole night deep in conversation," a source told British magazine Grazia. "It was obvious after their dinner that there was still serious chemistry there and Nicholas has made it very clear he'd like to give it another go. He's been pursuing her constantly."
It has been claimed that Jennifer was initially reluctant to consider rekindling the romance. However, after spending more time with Nicholas, the 22-year-old star realised how much she has missed the British hunk.
"Jen conceded that she had been thinking about him. They were once so close - friends think it's only a matter of time until they get back together," the source added.
Jennifer and Nicholas met on the set of X-Men: First Class in 2010 and dated for around two years before they went their separate ways.
Nicholas, 23, is based in London, while Jennifer lives in Hollywood and it is believed that maintaining a long-distance relationship took its toll.
They are currently shooting the sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past, which is due to be released next year.
While she was dating Nicholas, Jennifer was clearly smitten with the star and admired his humble nature.
"He has absolutely no idea how good-looking he is... He's my favourite person to be around and he makes me laugh harder than anybody," she said in an interview last year.
