Rumors that Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult are dating began to surface around the time the actors began filming Equals together in Japan.
Now that shooting has wrapped, Hoult and KStew are still spending a lot of time together. Just last week, Stewart and Hoult attended a movie premiere together, leading many to believe they’re preparing to go public as a couple.
But sources say that Nick and Kristen are in a simple “friends with benefits” arrangement, and neither has any interest in making it official.
“Kristen absolutely adores Nick,” says one insider. “Is she in love with him? No, not at all. She’s in love with her independence right now and the peace that comes with not dating anyone seriously.”
“She promised herself she would not jump right into a serious relationship after Rob. He was the love of her life.”
Stewart and Hoult both went through high-profile breakups recently, and both of their A-list exes have moved on to committed relationships.
Robert Pattinson is dating FKA Twigs at the moment, and friends say the relationship is quickly getting serious.
Meanwhile, Hoult’s ex Jennifer Lawrence is dating Chris Martin and has reportedly already begun spending time with the Coldplay singer’s kids.
Despite the fact that their exes both seem to have found happiness with new boos, friends say Kristen and Nicholas have no interest in settling down together any time soon.
“[Kristen] is happy that Rob’s happy, but it’s not a subject she wants to talk about. As far as Nick’s concerned, they are super tight, but that’s pretty much it.”
