The 26-year-old actor told People that there’s no romantic relationship between him and his 25-year-old Equals co-star.
“Of course there’s always going to be speculation. But there’s also like a whole business behind people kind of fueling those fires and creating speculation,” Nicholas said. “There’s kind of a whole industry behind that at play that has nothing to do with the actual people.”
Meanwhile, Kristen has been spending time with her girlfriend Soko, who recently proclaimed that she is “very, very, very in love.”

The 26-year-old actor plays a power hungry businessman in his new movie Kill Your Friends, and he recently told Entertainment Weekly that the role was out of his comfort zone.
“I’m not someone who’s trying to form a career on people thinking, ‘Oh, he always plays the nice guy’ or that sort of thing,” Nicholas said.
He added, “There’s certainly roles that you look at, and you think, I’ve got an idea of how to do that, and that’s within my comfort zone, and I think this role was not in my comfort zone of what I’ve been doing and what’s more natural for me to do perhaps. So it was a good challenge.”
