J-LAW’S TOR­MENT OVER EX

With her ca­reer on hia­tus, friends re­veal Jen is strug­gling to move on from The EXÉ

Look (UK) - - CONTENTS -

It’s not been the eas­i­est of months for Jen­nifer Lawrence. Af­ter all, the star has been go­ing through a breakup af­ter sep­a­rat­ing from direc­tor Dar­ren Aronof­sky at the end of last year. And as Look re­ported a few weeks ago, Jen’s been hav­ing some time out, fo­cussing on other projects and hav­ing some well-de­served R&R. How­ever, ac­cord­ing to an in­sider, time out of the spot­light has also given Jen the chance to think – and we hear she’s been tak­ing a trip down mem­ory lane and re­flect­ing on her re­la­tion­ship with ex-boyfriend, 28-year-old Ni­cholas Hoult.

The pair were to­gether for five years, and although they split over three years ago, we’ve heard Jen, 27, has al­ways ac­knowl­edged Nick as a huge chap­ter in her life. Speak­ing about their re­la­tion­ship in Novem­ber 2015 (and giv­ing us all the feels FYI), Jen ad­mit­ted feel­ing lost af­ter the ro­mance ended: ‘I was also in a re­la­tion­ship with some­body for five years and we broke up around the same time I wrapped the movies. Be­ing 24 was this whole year of: “Who am I with­out these movies? Who am I with­out this man?”’ Ac­cord­ing to a friend, it’s a feel­ing Jen is re­port­edly re­vis­it­ing.

‘Jen has al­ways looked at Nick as her first love,’ ex­plains a friend. ‘She’s stayed in touch with him and he’s al­ways the first per­son she calls when she’s down or needs some­one to talk to.’

Last month, it was re­ported that Jen and Nick had been spend­ing an in­creas­ing amount of time to­gether and some fans were hope­ful they were about to reignite their re­la­tion­ship. But while noth­ing has been con­firmed, it seems the pair were just hang­ing out as mates, as Nick is with his girl­friend of just over a year, 24-year-old model Bryana Holly.

‘Jen does won­der if she made a mis­take let­ting him go, but she’s not the type to be bit­ter – she knows that Nick has his own life to live,’ says a pal. ‘He’s very much loved-up with Bryana and de­scribes her as The One. Jen ac­cepts this, but it is hard – she’s very happy for him but deep down it hurts. Nick and Jen found fame to­gether and they were so sup­port­ive of each other – she al­ways as­sumed they’d end up to­gether, even­tu­ally. But, things have changed, and Jen knows she has to ac­cept that.’

The one that got away, right Jen?
