Jennifer Lawrence celebrates Golden Globes win with a kiss from boyfriend Nicholas Hoult

Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult are one of Hollywood’s most private couples.

So it came as a bit of a shock when Oscar-winner Jennifer planted a kiss on her British beau to celebrate American Hustle winning Best Movie – Comedy at the 2014 Golden Globes on Sunday evening.

The blonde star, dressed in a white strapless Dior gown, tenderly wrapped her arms around Nicholas and embraced him before heading up on stage at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

It was her second victory of the evening having scooped the Best Supporting Actress award for the film - according to HollywoodLife, when Jennifer’s name was read out, Nicholas was seen mouthing, "Well done baby."

Their public embrace came as a surprise to many given that they like to keep their relationship out of the spotlight. Jennifer’s American Hustle co-star Bradley Cooper, who was sat beside the smitten stars, appeared touched by their show of affection, and was seen smiling as they leaned in for the kiss.

It was by no means the only sweet moment between Jennifer, 23, and Nicholas, 24. Throughout the evening, the adorable pair were seen leaning in whispering sweetly to one another, and giggling as they cuddled up together.

Jennifer and Nicholas met in 2011 on the set of X-Men: First Class. They split up in January 2013, but had rekindled their romance by July after working together on X-Men: Days of Future Past.
