Before we let our imaginations run wild with potential portmanteaus for the new couple (N. Stew! Kroult! Nichsten!), we have to face the fact that these two are most likely not dating. What we're probably witnessing here is just two friends and coworkers getting dinner together. Let's examine the situation a little more closely.
After Stewart's high-profile break-up, she hasn't seemed eager to enter another serious relationship. Hoult just ended an on-again, off-again relationship that put him constantly in the spotlight. On top of that, Kristen and Nicholas had to have a press conference about their feelings for one another.
"It's always a weird position to be put in any film where the director chooses two people and is saying 'Hey, potentially in this world I'm creating you two could fall in love,'" Hoult said. "Sometimes [it] feels forced and tricky and awkward, but...Kristen is a great actress and that just makes it very relaxed and my job very easy."
Let's not confuse two people pretending to be in love for a movie with them actually being in love. Not only is that giving Kristen Stewart way too much credit as an actress (sorry, but it had to be said), but we're still hoping that Nicholas Hoult and Jennifer Lawrence will rekindle their love. What can we say? We ship Beast and Mystique — hard. (ONTD!)
