Nicholas Hoult responds to Kristen Stewart dating reports

Nicholas Hoult and Kristen Stewart worked together in science fiction romantic drama film Equals.

Nicholas Hoult has responded to rumours that he is dating Kristen Stewart. The 26-year-old actor rubbished reports that he is in a relationship with his Equals co-star.

In an interview with People, Jennifer Lawrence's former boyfriend revealed there was no real-life romance between him and the Twilight actress. He said: "Of course there's always going to be speculation. But there's also like a whole business behind people kind of fueling those fires and creating speculation. There's kind of a whole industry behind that at play that has nothing to do with the actual people."

Meanwhile, Stewart is currently dating French singer/songwriter SoKo. During an interview with Nylon in August 2015, Stewart, who previously dated Alicia Cargile, opened up about her sexuality. She said: "Google me, I'm not hiding."

"If you feel like you really want to define yourself, and you have the ability to articulate those parameters and that in itself defines you, then do it. But I am an actress, man. I live in the fucking ambiguity of this life and I love it. I don't feel like it would be true for me to be like, 'I'm coming out!' No, I do a job. Until I decide that I'm starting a foundation or that I have some perspective or opinion that other people should be receiving...I don't. I'm just a kid making movies," she added.

"I think in three or four years, there are going to be a whole lot more people who don't think it's necessary to figure out if you're gay or straight. It's like, just do your thing," Stewart continued.
