Celeb Exes Who've Had to Work Together After Splitting Up

People Logo By Grace Gavilanes of People | Slide 1 of 14: The X-Men franchise served as an important milestone (both personal and professional) for Lawrence and Hoult: They met on the set of the hit film and dated for a few years before ending their relationship in August 2014.

"These movies had been my life for so long and they had to come first in everything," the Oscar winner said in 2015. "I was also in a relationship with somebody for five years and that was my life. So my life was this person and these movies and we broke up around the same time that I wrapped those movies." She continued: "Being 24 was this whole year of, 'Who am I without these movies? Who am I without this man?' "

Hoult opened up about the situation in 2019, telling ELLE, “It’s like going back to school after the summer holidays. The reality of [the X-Men franchise] is there are lots of characters, so everyone was together for brief periods, but not every day for four months.”
