Jennifer Lawrence & Nicholas Hoult's Romance Heating Up?

In The Hunger Games, Jennifer Lawrence plays a character torn between two loves. But off camera, it looks like the 21-year-old actress has already found her man: Nicholas Hoult.

It has long been rumored the X-Men: First Class alums (she played Mystique, he played Beast) were an item, but the actress and the British star, 22, have been remarkably tight-lipped about their romance -- especially compared to Lawrence's costar Liam Hemsworth, who's in a high-profile relationship with girlfriend Miley Cyrus.

On Tuesday, photos hit the internet of Lawrence and Hoult doing something very coupley together: playing basketball. They weren't kissing or cozying up on a dance floor, but they do look adorably into each other as they play one-on-one in Los Angeles.

Lawrence and Hoult were first reported as dating in January 2011, when the costars were spotted together during Lawrence's various awards-show appearances for Winter's Bone. According to Just Jared, sources said the two were holding hands at a 2011 SAG Awards afterparty and "were inseparable all night."

More than a year later, the undercover couple seems to be still going strong!
