Jennifer Lawrence's ex-boyfriend Nicholas Hoult is once again speaking out about her awards season success.

"I'm very, very happy for her," Hoult told us of Lawrence's big Oscar win tonight at the Hollywood premiere of his new flick Jack the Giant Slayer. "I'm thrilled!"

Hoult added that he thought Silver Linings Playbook "was great!"

Hoult and Lawrence dated after meeting on the set of X-Men: First Class.

Hoult talked to us about reuniting with the Silver Linings Playbook starlet and the rest of his X-Men cast for the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past.

"It'll be great to be back with everyone," he said. "I know it's a particularly exciting thing for me on that one is having Hugh Jackman and those guys back because those are the guys I grew up watching in X-Men films."

"We'll wait and see how that relationship develops," he also recently told us of their onscreen romance. "They're going to split between different times a little bit, with the older cast coming back, so we'll have to wait and see."
