X-Men actor Nicholas Hoult is said to have moved on from his split from actress Jennifer Lawrence and is now reportedly dating Glee star Dianna Agron.

The Sun reports that Hoult, 25, was allegedly spotted "kissing" the American actress at a West Hampstead, London, pub over the Easter weekend.

A source reportedly told the newspaper: "It's early days but things between them are ticking along nicely. They've been friends for a long time.

"Nicholas is very low key so at first, Dianna would just tag along with him to the pub and she'd be part of the gang. No one thought much of it but recently they've become quite close and are behaving quite couply."

The insider claims that Hoult has been taking Agron, 28, on dates around the capital, including a Sunday roast at Hammersmith pub Black Lion.

The TV actress is currently spending time in the UK as she prepares to make her West End debut in James Phillips play, McQueen. Agron was most recently linked to celebrity manager Jack Street shortly after his highly-publicised split from Strictly Come Dancing winner Caroline Flack.

Flack is alleged to have hinted at their romance by tweeting: "Fill yourself with glee," in reference to Agron's hit show, but the post was later deleted.

If the dating rumours are true, it will be the first high-profile for Hoult since his break-up from Silver Linings Playbook actress Lawrence in August 2014. At the time, a source told US Weekly that the pair's hectic careers got in the way of their relationship.

"They just weren't together a lot, her life is a whirlwind. They have gotten back together before, it just got to be too hard for now," the insider said.

Hoult was temporarily linked to Twilight star Kristen Stewart with reports suggesting they had gotten close while filming sci-fi movie The Equals in September 2014, but the rumours eventually fizzled out.
