Jennifer Lawrence's Ex Is 'Thrilled' About Her Oscar Win

Nicholas Hoult says he's "very happy" for his former lady love.


They may have parted ways before awards season began, but Nicholas Hoult is still happy for ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lawrence, who nabbed the Oscar for Best Actress Sunday night.

"I'm very, very happy for her," the Warm Bodies actor told E! News. "I'm thrilled!"

The 23-year-old added that he thought Lawrence's flick, Silver Linings Playbook, was "was great!"

Lawrence, 22, and Hoult first met on the set of X-Men: First Class in 2010 and have been open about their relationship.

“[My boyfriend] is honestly my best friend, and hopefully I’m his best friend too,” the actress told Elle last December. “He’s my favorite person to be around and he makes me laugh harder than anybody.”

The couple called it quits in January right after Lawrence swept 2013's People's Choice Awards.

Though they're not longer romantically linked, Lawrence and Hoult will reunite on the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past, the next installment in the comic book saga.

"We'll wait and see how that relationship develops," Hoult said of their onscreen romance. "They're going to split between different times a little bit, with the older cast coming back, so we'll have to wait and see."

The actor also appears in the March issue of GQ -- seen in the gallery above.
