Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult have dodged rumors that the two are more than friends for quite some time now. But after they were spotted returning to a NYC hotel together recently, a source close to the 25-year-old Twilight beauty told RadarOnline.com exclusively that they actually have hooked up! Click through these nine photos of the unlikely duo's friends with benefits relationship.
In the upcoming movie Equals, Kristen Stewart and 25-year-old Oscar winning actress Jennifer Lawrence's ex, Nicholas Hoult, 26, play two star-crossed lovers. According to a source, "The two of them have hooked up in the past since they shot the movie together and prior to that as well."
"But Kristen is not ready to get into a relationship with anyone right now," the insider said.
"Not only are the both of them way to busy to be heavily involved, but Kristen does not know what she wants," said the source.
As Radar previously reported, Stewart and Hoult have been plagued by rumors that they were intimately involved since the two were spotted being touchy-feely while exploring Japan together in July 2014.
"Kristen is keeping her options open when it comes to dating," the insider told Radar.
"But Nicholas and Kristen do have a really strong connection and being around him makes her happy," added the source. "He is one of the most simple guys in the world and, like her, he really wants nothing to do with the whole Hollywood scene.
Hoult is a rebound from Stewart's reported ex, Alicia Cargile. Although she and former assistant Cargile are said to have split amicably, the pair have not been seen together since this past summer.
However, if Hoult's ex, 25-year-old Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence, can spill the beans on her off-camera hookups with her Hunger Games co-star Liam Hemsworth, 25, could Hoult do the same with Kstew?
Prior to dating Cargile, Stewart was infamously involved in a longtime relationship with her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson. But as fans know, that ended when Stewart was caught having an affair with her Snow White director, Rupert Sanders, 44. Such a tangled web these Hollywood stars weave!
