Nicholas Hoult has spoken out about the celebrity nude picture hacking, which saw his ex-girlfriend and X Men co-star Jennifer Lawrence among its victims.

J-Law - who dated her X Men: First Class co-star Nicholas on and off for several years - recently spoke out to Vanity Fair magazine, calling the leak a "sex crime".

Speaking about the naked selfies of herself that appeared on the internet she said: "I was in a loving, healthy, great relationship for four years. It was long distance, and either your boyfriend is going to look at porn or he's going to look at you."

Nicholas appeared on Good Day New York to promote new film Young Ones where he was asked about the hacking.

The presenter began: "Speaking of friends, Jennifer Lawrence, she's been making a lot of news lately because of the pictures that were hacked and I think they might have been pictures that were sent to you."

Asked what he thought about the scandal Nicholas said uncomfortably: "It's shocking that things like that happen in the world. It's a shame."

About A Boy star Nicholas, 24, and Jennifer, 23, began dating in 2011. They took a break in 2013 but rekindled their romance on the set of X Men: Days Of Future Past, before splitting again earlier this year. Jennifer has now moved on with Coldplay's Chris Martin.
