Actress Jennifer Lawrence and beau Nicholas Hoult reportedly bought a house in London, after looking at properties in the area for the past few weeks. Lawrence, 23, and Hoult, 24, met on the set of X-Men: First Class in 2011, and are again starring together in director Bryan Singer's upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Hoult's sister Clarista commented that the couple also considered buying a property in Hampshire, where Hoult's parents live, but settled on London, and now plan to decorate.
"It's his first house," Clarista said, adding, "He's very excited and has been getting all his furniture from Ikea. Nick has been big into feng shui. In his room he has had branches, twigs with lights, the mattress and everything else on the floor, like water feathers and chairs, facing in the right direction."
Lawrence and Hoult had been dating for two years before taking a break, and got back together during the latest X-Men production. A source said, "Jen loves the English way of life. As they are now serious again, it makes sense to look into buying somewhere."

In related news, X-Men: Days of Future Past director Singer is presently embroiled in a civil suit in which he is accused of having sex with an underage male in 1999. Former child actor Michael Egan named Singer as being involved in a string of underage sex parties, and filed a civil lawsuit. Singer has decided not to participate in the promotion of his new X-Men film, and commented, "Out of respect to all of the extraordinary contributions from the incredibly talented actors and crew involved, I've decided not to participate in the upcoming media events for the film. However, I promise when this situation is over, the facts will show this to be the sick twisted shakedown it is."
