But they remain friends."

Hoult and Lawrence were very close during their two-year romance, with Lawrence telling Elle magazine in December 2012, "He is honestly my best friend, and hopefully I'm his best friend, too." She continued, "He's my favorite person to be around and he makes me laugh harder than anybody."

As for Hoult's split with Lawrence, earlier this month he told Elle magazine he "made mistakes" with his most recent relationship. Jennifer Lawrence was rumored to be dating her Silver Linings Playbook co-star Bradley Cooper, but their age difference proved to be too much for Cooper.

"If it didn't happen by now, it's not gonna happen," said Cooper. He added, "I could literally be her father."
