Jennifer Lawrence's ex-boyfriend Nicholas Hoult has revealed that he took up knitting as a hobby while he filmed his upcoming movie Mad Max.

The 'About A Boy' actor admitted that he became “obsessed” with the therapeutic pastime while he shot scenes for the movie remake in Africa alongside fellow British star Tom Hardy.

"A make-up artist taught me. I've stopped. Although I did become obsessed with it,” the 23-year-old revealed to the Radio Times.

And it seems the heartthrob developed quite a knack for knitting while he spent seven months away from the UK, admitting that he managed to make an impressive eight items.

"I made two scarves, a snood and five hats. It was such a masculine set," the star added.

Despite raising his profile significantly in recent years, helped by his role in the X Men franchise, Hoult confessed that he wasn't always dedicated to his art.

"I really enjoyed making 'About a Boy'. But if there was a cricket game going on next door, I'd be more interested in playing in that than doing the scene. It wasn't like I was thinking, 'Oh, this is gonna be a career, let's focus on acting.'"
