It's going to be awkward on set! J-Law's fretting about scenes with her ex


Jennifer Lawrence has reportedly been "dodging" Nicholas Hoult's phone calls.

The 24-year-old star met her ex-boyfriend when they were shooting the X-Men movies and they dated on-and-off for four years, splitting earlier in 2014. Jennifer has seemingly moved on with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, but last week it was revealed that she and Nicholas will need to shoot some steamy scenes for the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. Apparently, the thought has made Jennifer uneasy. "Jen's been dodging Nick's calls, but she knows she has to talk to him before they start read-throughs," a source told British magazine Heat. "It's comes at a difficult time and she's worried she may get confused if she starts talking to Nick again." Apparently Jennifer and Chris will have been together around six months when she starts filming the new superhero flick. The musician is apparently very aware of what's happening, so has come up with a way to keep his new girlfriend as happy as possible.

"Jen's been travelling with Chris to gigs, but as her schedule stars to get busy, he's cleared his calendar to be on location with her. He won't be able to stay away from his kids for long, though, so he's going to be travelling a lot," the insider said.

Chris shares two children with his estranged wife Gwyneth Paltrow.

The upcoming X-Men film will apparently focus on the relationship between Jennifer's character Raven/Mystique and Nicholas' Hank McCoy/Beast.

"It’s a huge ensemble franchise but the point of this latest film was to strip that back and focus on Jen and Nick’s characters’ relationship," an insider previously told British newspaper The Sun.

"Earlier this year that seemed like a great idea, but now they’ve split and it’s too late to completely rewrite the script. They are very professional, of course, and will make it work.”
