EXCLUSIVE: Jennifer Lawrence Reveals She Used to Yell at Ex Nicholas Hoult in a Southern Accent

By
With X-Men: Apocalypse headed to theaters later this month, the cast of the superhero epic is looking back at their time together over the past three X-Men films.
Jennifer Lawrence and James McAvoy recently sat down with ET's Carly Steel during a press junket for the action blockbuster, and the 25-year-old Joy star shared a funny story about her past relationship with Apocalypse co-star Nicholas Hoult.
"Nick always said whenever I yelled at him it was always in a Southern accent," shared Lawrence, who hails from Louisville, Kentucky.
"I find if I get angry, drunk, or really excited I get more Scottish," added McAvoy, a native Glaswegian.
"Oh, I used to yell at Nick and kind of see like his smile flickering," Lawrence recalled. "[I was] like, 'Why are you smiling?' And he's like, 'Because you sound like your dad.'"
Lawrence and Hoult dated while filming X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past. The couple called it quits in August 2014, but reportedly remained amicable after their split.
In the popular X-Men franchise, McAvoy stars as Professor Charles Xavier, the telepathic leader of the team of mutant superheroes. Lawrence, however, stars as the deadly shapeshifter Mystique -- a role that required the Oscar winner to show quite a bit of (blue paint-covered) skin.
So what does Lawrence do to maintain her svelte Mystique physique? Apparently, it's all about understanding your metabolism and your limitations.
"I try to work out. Then as you get older there's just certain things [you can't do]," she explained. "You can't lay in bed and eat pizza anymore."
"She eats pizza on the treadmill now," McAvoy chimed in.
X-Men: Apocalypse, which also stars Michael Fassbender, Oscar Isaac, Olivia Munn, Rose Byrne, Evan Peters and Sophie Turner, hits theaters May 27. Check out the action-packed trailer below.
