J-Law’s ex breaks silence on the leaked nude pics meant for him

Actor Nicholas Hoult has finally spoken out about the nude photo leak scandal, which most notably affected his ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lawrence.

The couple were together on-and-off for three years, and Jennifer herself admitted the photos stolen from her iCloud account were meant for NIcholas' eyes only.

"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," she said in a recent head-on chat with Vanity Fair.

Nicholas branded the leak as "shocking" in an interview yesterday while promoting his new film The Young Ones

Interviewer Rosanna Scotto awkwardly broached the subject of Jen's nude photos, saying "I think they might have been pictures that were sent to you… I was wondering how you felt about that."

While Nicholas didn't confirm or deny that the photos were meant for him, he did express his disgust at the hackers' actions. "It's shocking that things like that happen in the world," he said "It's a shame."

The couple met back in 2011 while filming X-Men: First Class together, and remained together on and off until this August.

Jennifer is now dating Coldplay frontman Chris Martin – the two have been seen together numerous times in recent weeks.
