Watch Nicholas Hoult Awkwardly Address Jennifer Lawrence's Leaked Nude Photos

A news anchor questioned the actor about his ex-girlfriend's leaked photos.

Jennifer Lawrence and her nude photos are back in the headlines today after a "Good Day New York" anchor probed ex-boyfriend Nicholas Hoult about the scandal.

After discussing Hoult and Jake Paltrow's new film "Young Ones," Fox anchor Rosanna Scotto jumps into the conversation and with some off-rail questioning about his ex lover.

"Jennifer Lawrence has been making a lot of news lately because of those pictures that were hacked," Scotto says. "And, I think they might have been pictures that were sent to you..."

She rambles on for a few more moments while co-anchor Greg Kelly lets out an audible sigh, mentioning how J-Law labeled the hack a "sex crime" and confirmed the photos were meant for a long distance boyfriend. Hoult stares blankly at the bold inquisition before dropping his gaze simply responding: "It's shocking that things like that happen in the world. It's a shame."

Kelly quickly changes the tune of the conversation back to Hoult's film project before everything comes to an really uncomfortable and awkward end.

Watch the clip below for yourself. The action starts at the 5:30 mark.

Rumors of the intended recipient of Lawrence's private photos began after the actress spoke to Vanity Fair about the incident.

"I was in a loving, healthy, great relationship for four years," the Oscar winner said. "It was long distance, and either your boyfriend is going to look at porn or he’s going to look at you."
