X-Men director Bryan Singer shared a snap of himself with the two costars (and former lovers) via Instagram on Thursday, May 21. And while forced run-ins with exes can be a nightmare, both Lawrence, 24, and Hoult, 25, appear comfortable and at ease in the photograph, taken as they reunited to start work on their next movie collaboration, X-Men: Apocalypse.
Hoult, dressed in a smart striped shirt, has his arm wrapped firmly around Lawrence's shoulders as he takes center stage in the photograph, smiling directly into the camera. Lawrence, who looks pretty with her hair loosely pulled back off her face, is leaning in for a hug, and smiling broadly.
Hoult and Lawrence met on the set of X-Men: First Class, and dated for almost three years before splitting last summer. Since then, both have been spotted with new partners.
Lawrence has embarked on an on-again, off-again relationship with older man (and consciously uncoupled husband of Gwyneth Paltrow) Chris Martin, 38.
Hoult has also been dating again. As Us Weekly reported last month, he has been casually linked with Glee actress Dianna Agron, although sources at the time insisted the British actor was not looking for another, serious high-profile relationship.
