Nicholas Hoult May Have Broken Up With Jennifer Lawrence For Getting Too Cocky

Jennifer Lawrence making a monster face GIFBefore I tell you this next thing, I want you to be ready with a big grain of salt. Do you have it in your hand now? Okay, good — Nicholas Hoult reportedly broke up with Jennifer Lawrence because her ‘ego exploded’.

Now I know that sounds gruesome, but you can calm down, because Jennifer seems to be okay. Apparently the ego is not a real part of the body (I wouldn’t know, I don’t have one), so it is possible for one to survive its explosion. What reportedly didn’t survive the explosion was Jennifer’s relationship with Nicholas, as Celebrity Fix alleges that he broke up with Jen because she got too full of herself.

“Jen is still desperately trying to get back with Nicholas after he broke up with her. They’re still talking but Nicholas is moving on. He hates how in love with fame Jen is, and he told her he hates dating an A-list actress.”

I mean, yeah, she is the most famous person on the planet right now, and being anywhree close to that level of fame has the potential to be an extremely altering experience. Particularly when even a light criticism of the girl prompts all her fans to jump down your throat in unison, but that’s another story. Right now we were just talking about how Nicholas reportedly doesn’t want to date an A-Lister.

“That was the most hurtful to Jen because she’s worked so hard for her achievements and she’s so proud of her career. But Nic wants a more low-key girlfriend and Riley fits the bill.”

Oh and did I mention? They’re saying he’s already moved on, and to none other than Riley Keough. Apparently the two of them were seen ‘cozying up to each other’ at a party in New York City recently,  so I guess she’s just the go-to gal for Hollywood guys in off-and-on relationships. (Remember she’s the one that Robert Pattinson supposedly went runnign to after he and Kristen Stewart broke up for the thousandth time?)

Anyway, supposedly Nicholas is more into dating her because they have similar ideas about shunning the spotlight, and they both have reason to spend time in the UK. As you’ll recall, part of the reason Nicholas and Jennifer broke up in the past was because of the trials of a long distance relationship, and being hounded incessantly by the paparazzi whenever they are actually together. But it sounds like RIley is on the opposite end fthe spectrum.

“Riley is into acting in indies and not playing the fame game. She also spends a huge amount of time in the UK because her mom Lisa Marie Presley lives there. Nic dated Riley when he and Jen were on their last break too and he is ready to give their relationship a shot.”

Again, we have no idea whether any of this is true, but if we thought Jennifer turned on the charm during Oscar season, I can’t wait to see what she pulls out of her hat when trying to win back an ex-boyfriend.

      If any of this is true, it sounds like he can’t stand the thought of being with a woman who’s more successful than he is tbh. I always got weird vibes from the dude and she always seemed more into him that he with her. JLaw can do better.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        She’s the most famous person on the planet, though! It must really be tough to be plunged into that environment and have your relationship in the spotlight. For both of them!

      • Harry

        OR maybe Jennifer really is a jerk!

      • Ray

        Are you his best friend/ secret lover? Mom? You seem to be doing the MOST all over this post trying to defend him.

    • C

      The ones that start these types of articles, like Page Six and Celebrity Fix, really should do some research before starting rumors. Yes, Nick and Riley were at a party in New York last week. Along with Riley’s boyfriend Ben, who’s also a friend of Nick’s. Riley posted pics of Nick and Ben that same day on Instagram. A guy and a girl can hang out without there being something going on.
      And the whole “Nick broke up with Jennifer over her ego and because she’s in love with being famous” thing is laughable. The girl practically falls of the face of the earth when she doesn’t have anything to promote or awards shows to attend. She’s said it time and time again, she doesn’t like always being in the spotlight and likes the privacy she can get. Nick and Jennifer may be broken up, they could still be together, who knows, but these rumors are just silly.

      • IrishGirl

        @C: Yup. I couldn’t agree more.

      • Mockingjay

        I agree, I find it a bit unsettling when people talk about them as if they know them.

    • laney

      He sounds like a bitter jerk who is unhappy that Jennifer is more talented than him, more famous, and has more critical acclaim. But pleas continue to defend the guy who supposedly cheated on Jennifer and spin it as her having too big of an ego. She should be proud as hell of her accomplishments. She can find a better man than him.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        To be clear, the quotations included in this post aren’t directly from Nicholas. I doubt he’d speak openly about Jennifer that way.

      • laney

        I wouldn’t even try to deny that Jennifer has a “big” personality and says stupid shit often, she does. She’d probably tire me out and annoy me if I knew her in real life. But I do notice that if Jennifer isn’t promoting a movie, she’s rarely ever “caught” by the paparazzi or anything like that. It’s suspicious as hell that the only times it seems that Jennifer is caught, is when she was with Nick in London. He seems like he’s more desperate for fame than she is IMO.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        That’s so interesting — you’re right. I shall think on this.

      • Harry

        Actually he doesn’t seem to be desperate at all.

      • josh

        It seems he wants the power in the relationship. She is better looking by far, better movie choices and alot better talented. He can’t handle it. She can do alot better.

      • Harry

        Yes because you know him personally right?

      • josh

        Why yes I do. We went to school together. Its my opinion ya deuce.

      • Harry

        That was a really dumb comment. Maybe Jennifer really is a jerk. You don’t know her.

    • https://twitter.com/perfctlyflawd1 JenH1986

      I haven’t really seen much of J. Law since awards season. I know she’s gearing up for the Hunger Games onslaught that’s coming in November. Maybe she is a big asshole, but the fact she’s MIA makes me question the whole “in love with fame” thing.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        That’s a good point, for sure.

      • https://twitter.com/perfctlyflawd1 JenH1986

        She could still be an asshole though.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        None of us knows anything!

      • BG

        This is very true none of us know but in this case based on her actions that we can clearly see her do which is to shun the spotlight and disappear when not promoting a movie it seems the “source” saying Nic says she has a Hollywood ego is wrong.

    • M.

      I don’t believe Jennifer Lawrence has an ego at all for all the reasons mentioned. I think that’s the story being spun to justify the fact that Hoult plays around. A screenwriter at Sony Pictures recently was asked in an interview about who has the reputation in Hollywood and Jennifer Lawrence was included on the very short list of actors/actresses. Professional, very talented, very well liked. So, no to the ego thing, unless it’s Hoult’s ego we are talking about which seems likely.

      • M.

        …that’s who has the best reputation.

    • Dave

      lmao at him complaining that she’s in love with fame when the girl can disappear for months without being papped but the moment she steps out with him the paps somehow always find them.

      • M.

        Actually, that’s been the rumor for awhile now…that it’s been his team calling the paps with Hoult being fully aware while Jennifer Lawrence was unaware, which is why it upset her because Lawrence believed the paps were bothering Hoult. If that is indeed true, then Hoult is not only lying to Lawrence about a variety of things but he’s also a colossal prick.

        Oh, and he also had a fling with Teresa Palmer during the filming of Warm Bodies (he and Lawrence were dating then, and broke up because she found out about he and Palmer)…when he and Lawrence began seeing each other again, Palmer left a very cryptic tweet on his Twitter page…which he did not respond to. I think Hoult hooks up with every actress he works with but when filming is over, he moves on to the next one….Jennifer Lawrence has an ego?…yeah, right. I think Hoult is a jerk.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Interesting theory! Do you have a link to the tweet? I’m intrigued.

      • M.

        No, I don’t have a link to the tweet, sorry. I remember thinking when I read it though that something went on between the two of them. There were reports/rumors as well about he and Palmer.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Interesting. I’ll keep my eyes and ears open!

      • Mockingjay

        How do you people hear these rumors? They seem to come out of nowhere and to act like they are fact is a bit ridiculous.

    • Michael Nguyen

      Hoult doesn’t have a ego problem he’s been acting forever he was heartthrob in the UK as Tony on Skins and he always kept himself lowkey and out of the spotlight.

      • Red

        Yeah he does. It would bruise any man’s ego if you are the “next big thing” to come out of your show (Skins) then you make it to Hollywood, and your first big lead movie bombs at the box office, (Jack and the Giant Slayer). Even Warm Bodies didn’t do all that well. Compare that to Jennifer’s success..and well, it’s pretty obvious.

      • Michael Nguyen

        If Hoult wanted to go to hollywood and have a big ego like you say then he would’ve moved their long ago. But nope he still lived with his parents up until last year til he moved to one town over. His history has always been low key and out of the spotlight thats why he barely updates his social media accounts and barely take any pics at all.

      • M.

        Jennifer Lawrence doesn’t even participate in social media at all and completely disappears between films unless it’s something to do with Dior and even then, it’s one day and she leaves town. I honestly believe it’s Hoult who is more invested in being seen a often as possible. It’s why no one believes the whole fame hungry angle to the story.

      • Mockingjay

        Neither one is hardly ever photographed!!! Maybe they both dislike it and people take their picture anyway and start rumors.

    • C

      I don’t think it’s fair to lash out and call Nick names either or say that he’s cheated. There is nothing indicating that something like that happened, part from a “source” who claimed to have seen Nick and Riley sitting close together at a club along with a group of friends. How they get equals to him cheating, I don’t know. And unless Nick and Jen broke up last week, him doing anything with Riley wouldn’t be cheating.
      We don’t even know if Nick and Jennifer are broken up. For all we know, they could he happier then ever. These are all just rumors.

    • Opie

      Seems like just another insecure man who can’t handle the fact that the woman in his life has more success than him. Nick Hoult hasn’t been relevant since he was on SKINS. Jack and the Giant Slayer bombed horribly. As for Riley Keough, I call bullshit that she’s not into the “fame game”. If anyone was checking for her C-List ass, she would happily do whatever it took to stay in the public eye.

      • Harry

        Or maybe Jennifer really is an arrogant jerk.

      • Pam

        Or maybe this was a rag gossip article using a supposed “source” so none of it is probably true. That’s what is sad, any blog can write something saying its from a “source” and it leads to this, people taking sides for nothing. Only Nic and Jen know whats going on between them.

    • CJaY

      I say bring on Joshifer!

    • Tpce

      This is laughable, Jennifer Lawrence is one of the few celebs who disappear when she is not promoting a film or event. She has no instagram, twitter, avoids the paps like the plague, hell she only shows up to events she is obligated to attend like red carpets and dior since she has a contract with them, she does charity work incognito we don’t know about until its reported after the fact. She has said many times acting is her job she doesn’t understand why she is celebrated and that she feels doctors and scientists who actually contribute to the world being a better place should be celebrated.

      If she is Nic broke up ok that’s life but a gossip rag to claim a “source” saying she has a Hollywood ego just uhhh so sad, I don’t know Jennifer for nothing but I can tell by her actions which say a thousand words she is actively trying to stay away from the limelight.

      It goes back to this: JLAW SCANDAL = CLICKS GOLD for a blog.

    • M_G

      Wow….I missed the boat on this one. I wasn’t even aware they had gotten back together in the first place. Geez!! I am really dropping the ball on being in-the-know on celebrities-goings-on.

      • Elisa

        Lol… I think you answered the question of this blog… Jennifer Lawrence keeps things private when she is not promoting a movie or dior so the whole point of that article saying she has a Hollywood ego is debunked. That is why this “source” from celebrity fix sounds like bull poop.

      • M_G

        Ehhhhh……I am not sure the article is saying that Lawrence has an ego problem, just that that’s the reason Hoult (allegedly) gave for (allegedly) breaking up with her. But yeah, I never trust “insider sources” very much, but I admit it’s fun to speculate on the gossip. :-)

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Help us help you.

      • M_G

        “Hello, my name is M_G, and I have a gossip problem.”

    • Napoleon

      I knew it.

      • BG

        Ok. Don’t see how you come to that conclusion based on her joking and having a good time on the red carpet selling her movie or on a late night talk show, if she is having a good time the fans who are there to see her are also having a good time.
        I look at all her actions when not selling a movie and all she does is stay away from social media, paps, etc. she disappears which show she wants a private life which contradicts a Hollywood ego.

    • Rachel

      i’ll believe it when it’s really confirmed, there have been “rumors” of these two breaking up the minute she started getting famous.
