Kristen Stewart reportedly wants to keep her romance with Nicholas Hoult "under wraps".

The 24-year-old actress and British actor are rumoured to have struck up a relationship since filming movie Equals together, which is due out next year.

Their budding romance follows long-term relationships for both of them. Nicholas previously dated his X-Men: First Class co-star Jennifer Lawrence on and off, while Kristen had a relationship with Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson. Things ended after she was caught having an affair with married director Rupert Sanders in 2012.

"Kristen's really fallen for Nicholas, but after all the media attention on her and Rob's relationship, she wants to keep this one under wraps. She doesn't want that kind of exposure in her life again," a source told British magazine Closer.

The actress' affair not only ended her own relationship, but Rupert's marriage to his then-wife Liberty Ross. The couple filed for divorce in May 2013 and it was finalised earlier this year. This is also said to have added to Kristen's anxiety about her new bond with Nicholas as she doesn't want any slip ups to go public again.

"Kristen felt the whole world was watching her and Rob when it was exposed she'd been unfaithful," the source added. "She wants a normal romance now, where problems remain private.

"Nicholas really likes that Kirsten isn't loud. She doesn't give too much away."

Robert has since moved on with musician FKA Twigs, while Nicholas' ex Jennifer is thought to be dating Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.
