Actor Nicholas Hoult has broken his silence over ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lawrence's nude photo scandal, branding the hacking a "shame". The Hunger Games star was one of dozens of female celebrities targeted in the recent Hollywood hack, which led to personal naked pictures of the stars posted on the Internet.
Lawrence spoke out about the "disgusting" incident for the first time in a recent interview with Vanity Fair, dubbing it a "sex crime" and "sexual violation".
She went on to reveal the pictures were originally intended for an unnamed boyfriend, believed to be her X-Men: First Class co-star Hoult.
She said, "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. 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."
During a visit to U.S. TV show Good Day New York on Thursday (08Oct14), Hoult opened up about the hacking for the first time, saying, "It's shocking that things like that happen in the world. It's a shame."
Ironically, Hoult was on the show to promote his new film Young Ones alongside director Jake Paltrow, who is Gwyneth Paltrow's brother and former brother-in-law of Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, who is rumoured to be currently dating Lawrence.
Jennifer Lawrence's ideal guy is a reality TV fan, who isn't afraid to fart in front of her.
The Hunger Games star, who is reportedly dating Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, tells Vanity Fair magazine she's not into flashy guys who love to party, insisting her perfect date night is one spent on the sofa in front of the TV. She explains, "I would just rather have somebody that has the same taste in reality TV (as me)... (someone who) isn't afraid to fart in front of me... I'd rather have just a peaceful time. (Those relationships) are deeper because you can be your true self with somebody, and somebody can be their true self with you."
And she'd rather leave the drama on a film set, adding, "I don't like fighting, and I find argumentative people the most annoying people on the planet... It's just unattractive."
Coldplay frontman Chris Martin swapped bands on Friday night (03Oct14) by performing with Kings Of Leon in California. The British rocker joined the Sex On Fire hitmakers for their show at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, surprising the crowd by taking to the stage to play piano and sing on the band's track Talihina Sky.
He also joined them for a rendition of their song Notion.
As Martin took a bow and left the stage, frontman Caleb Followill told the crowd, "I hope you enjoyed that. That cost us a lot of money."
