According to a source who spoke exclusively with E! News, the split was “very amicable” and came because of the couple’s busy filming schedules.
“They spent a lot of time apart because of work and it was difficult on their relationship,” the source added.
Hoult is currently in Japan filming Equals opposite Kristen Stewart. Though Stewart cleared up any idea of romance rumors months ago, the two were spotted enjoying sushi together at a market this week. The photo was snapped by a sneaky Twitter user who posted the pictures, which Perez Hilton shared. It could just be a friendly lunch between costars, but now that the actor is back on the market by the sounds of it, we can’t help but wonder if the friendly hangouts between the two on set could lead to something more.
Lawrence, meanwhile, is gearing up for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1, which comes out this November. The trailer was just released at Comic-Con and more press will, no doubt, follow in the upcoming months. The actress also has quite a few films in the works for the upcoming year. Lawrence is set to play the title character in director David O. Russell’s (Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle) upcoming project Joy.
Hoult and Lawrence first met on the set of X-Men: First Class back in 2011 and began dating. The couple briefly ended their relationship for a few months in 2013, but rekindled their romance while filming X-Men: Days of Future Past together.
We can’t help but wonder if they’ll be able to stay away from one another when the third X-Men movie, X-Men: Apocalypse, begins filming. Perhaps we haven’t seen the last of Lawrence and Hoult together after all. At least, we can hope.
