by | PopCrush

Nicholas Hoult was put in an uncomfortable position after a news anchor asked him about the Jennifer Lawrence nude photo leak. Yikes.

While visiting ‘Good Day New York’ to promote his new film ‘Young Ones,’ host Rosanna Scotto probed Hoult about his opinion of the photo hack, acknowledging not only Lawrence’s recent comments about the situation, but also the fact that he was the one to whom she sent the photos.

After fixing her with a blank, somber stare, Hoult finally replied, “Yeah, it’s shocking that things like that happen in the world,” he said squirming, clearly uncomfortable. “It’s a shame.”

For her part, Lawrence broke her silence about the privacy violation in the newest issue of Vanity Fair.

“I was in a loving, healthy, great relationship for four years. It was long distance, and either your boyfriend is going to look at porn or he’s going to look at you,” she explained of her decision to take the pictures.

“It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime,” the ‘Hunger Games’ star said of the photo hack. “It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting. The law needs to be changed.”
