Nicholas Hoult: Jennifer Lawrence photo leak is a "shame"

Nicholas Hoult has spoken out for the first time about his ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lawrence’s nude photo leak, admitting it is a "shame" the pictures were posted online.


Jennifer Lawrence’s ex-boyfriend Nicholas Hoult has slammed her nude photo leak as "shocking."

The Young Ones actor has spoken out about the naked images of his former lover, which she has said were originally sent to him before they were hacked, for the first time in an awkward exchange in which he admitted it was a "shame" they were posted onto the internet.

When asked about his thoughts on the leak during an interview on Good Day New York, the 24-year-old actor looked uncomfortable in his seat with his eyes firmly fixed on the ground.

He then crossed his arms before looking back up to the reporter and replying: "It’s shocking that things like that happen in the world ... it’s a shame."

Jennifer is one of many stars to have fallen victim to the iCloud hackers, as well as Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, and Kelly Brook.

The Oscar-winning actress recently claimed she initially sent the images to Nicholas because they were involved in a long-distance relationship and she preferred him looking at them to porn.

The Hunger Games actress—who split from the hunk earlier this year—said: "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 has also hit out at the hackers, describing their actions as "sex crimes."

The blonde beauty—who was targeted for the second time last month when trolls released a further 55 images of her on websites 4Chan and Reddit—added: "It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime. It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting. The law needs to be changed, and we need to change."

Following the former couple’s split, both are said to have moved on in their relationships with Jennifer dating Chris Martin, while Nicholas is thought to be seeing Twilight star Kristen Stewart.
