Jennifer Lawrence is the official “It” girl of the moment, with every guy from Leonardo DiCaprio to (cringe) Jack Nicholson trying to get close to her. She’s everywhere. So it can’t be that easy to be her ex-boyfriend, especially when you try to promote your own films and people keep asking about your famous ex.

JLaw and Nicholas Hoult met on the set of X-Men: First Class and their split was made public in early January. While promoting Warm Bodies, Nicholas said he was “very proud” of Jennifer’s success with Silver Linings Playbook, and in an interview before Jennifer won her Oscar, Nicholas told U.K. magazine Hello! (via SFGate), “We’re still friends. I’m very proud of her… It’s a great film and she’s fantastic in it so I’m very happy for her.”

He also talked more about relationships: “Romance is something that you can get caught up in very easily because it feels very exciting and new every time. But once you’re settled in it, and you really have grown to know a person, then there’s a sense of safety and settlement, which I like very much.”

Jennifer and Nicholas will reunite for the next X-Men movie, so it’s possible they’ll be able to pick up where they left off. Or maybe they’ll just hang out as friends. Either way, it sounds like it won't be too awkward.
