NICHOLAS HOULT insists there was no awkwardness when he and his ex Jennifer Lawrence came face-to-face for their new flick X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
The pair dated for three years after meeting on their first X-Men film in 2011, and now Lawrence is engaged to art dealer Cooke Maroney.
But British actor Hoult, 29, who had a son last year with US model Bryana Holly, said his reunion with J-Law, who plays Mystique, was like hanging out with an old school chum.
‘It’s like going back to school after the summer holidays,’ said Hoult, aka Beast in the superhero franchise.
‘There are lots of characters, so everyone was together for brief periods, but not every day for four months.’
