Things are about to get awkward for Jennifer Lawrence and her ex

Facing your ex is always an awkward situation, so we can’t imagine how we’d react if the whole world was watching.

Apparently, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult aren’t too thrilled at the prospect, either.

The actors, who dated on and off for three years after meeting on the set of their first X-Men movie, and are set to reprise their roles as lovers Mystique and Beast in the next instalment.

According to reports today however, as production for X-Men: Apocalypse looms, Jennifer is said to be growing increasingly nervous about their love scenes together.

A source told Heat magazine: “It’s come at a difficult time and [Jennifer’s] worried she may get confused if she starts talking to Nick again.”

And we can see why. They couple first got together on the set of X-Men: First Class, later splitting, but deciding to give their relationship another go after reuniting to film sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past.

To make matters worse, the next movie is set to give a lot of focus to the relationship between Nick and Jen’s characters.

Sounds like a recipe for major awkwardness.

While nothing is ever easy where matters of the heart are concerned, Jennifer and Nicholas are total professionals, so we have no doubt that they’ll do a top job with the next movie.
