He may have dated the gorgeous Jennifer Lawrence for quite some time, but Nicholas Hoult doesn’t deem himself swoon worthy.
“I don’t think I’m really a heartthrob,” says the 23-year-old, who stars in Jack the Giant Slayer, opening Friday. “I’m pretty lanky and goofy looking! But it’s very flattering and that’s very nice if anyone does see me as being attractive.”

And now it’s obvious as to why Jennifer was attracted to her ex boyfriend in the first place — they both have the same laidback personality!
“We can eat Cheetos and watch beach volleyball and we turn into perverted Homer Simpsons,” the 22-year-old Oscar winner said in November when she was still dating the actor. “He’s my favorite person to be around and he makes me laugh harder than anybody.”
Unfortunately, the pair split earlier this year. They had been dating since 2010, after meeting on the set of X-Men.

But could a reconciliation be in the works? The duo will work together on an upcoming X-Men sequel, which according to IMDB, is currently in pre-production.
“I’m really excited to go back into [the X-Men universe] and to work more with those guys…We had a lot of fun making the first one, lots of great memories, so it’ll be a nice reunion,” Nicholas recently said.
