Nicholas Hoult: JLaw leaks a shame


Nicholas Hoult believes it’s “a shame” nude photos were leaked of ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lawrence.

The actor dated his X-Men co-star on and off until their split earlier this year. Nick was cornered during a TV appearance Thursday about their romance, and recent controversy surrounding leaked photos of his ex - one of dozens of actress’ targeted in a mass celebrity photo leak last month. "I think they might have been pictures that were sent to you... I was wondering how you felt about that," Good Day New York anchor Rosanna Scotto asked.

‘It's shocking that things like that happen in the world. It's a shame’

"It's shocking that things like that happen in the world. It's a shame,” Nicholas replied.

His remarks follow days after Jennifer addressed the controversy head-on, slamming the person or persons responsible for the hack.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, she revealed she had sent the leaked images to a former boyfriend while in a long-distance relationship.

"Just because I'm a public figure, just because I'm an actress, does not mean that I asked for this," she said.

"It's my body, and it should be my choice, and the fact that it is not my choice is absolutely disgusting. I can't believe that we even live in that kind of world.

"It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime,” she continued.

The actress also admitted she initially was going to pen an apology. But she had a change of heart and her emotions soon switched to outrage.

"Every single thing that I tried to write made me cry or get angry,” she said.

"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."
