It appears Nicholas Hoult is DEFINITELY Team Kristen these days!
While at the NYC premiere of the actor's new film, "Young Ones," on Oct. 9, the 24-year-old gushed about rumored girlfriend Kristen Stewart.
"She's just ridiculously talented. It's inspiring," he told Life & Style.
This comes just days after a report claimed Jennifer Lawrence's ex hit it off big time with KStew, who happens to be one of J-Law's friends (or FORMER friends now).
A source claims the duo were "stuck together" all night during a Cinema Society screening for KStew's new film "Clouds of Sils Maria" in NYC on Wednesday, Oct. 8. Nicholas was later seen without Kristen at the film's afterparty held at Sons of Essex.
It only fuels rumors the pair, who recently just filmed the upcoming movie "Equals" together, are an item — claims the actress has denied. Mhmm...
Nicholas appeared on "Good Day New York" this morning, and while he did not mention anything about Kristen, he did briefly discuss his ex-girlfriend of four years.
When awkwardly asked how he feels about Jen's nude photo leak, he said, "It's shocking that things like that happen in the world. It's a shame."
To make things even more awkward, the 24-year-old Oscar-winning actress opened up about the hack and admitted the racy photos she took were for Nicholas' eyes just days before in the new issue of "Vanity Fair."
"Every single thing that I tried to write made me cry or get angry. I started to write an apology, but I don't have anything to say I'm sorry for,” she recalled. “I was in a loving, healthy, great relationship for four years. It was long distance, and either your boyfriend is going to look at porn or he's going to look at you."
Though KStew broke the No. 1 girl code rule of dating a friend's ex (she's done worse — ah hem, Rupert Sanders and Liberty Ross), something tells us Jen can't be bothered with the nonsense – considering she's dating swoon-worthy Chris Martin.
