When looking at celebrity couples and their very public relationships, you wouldn’t think that something as simple as a beauty product would come between them. After all, if they can make it through hordes of paparazzi and all the “scandals” magazines claim they’re involved in, they can make it through anything, right?

Wrong. Because celebrity couples are just like every other couple on the planet! They’re real people who have likes and dislikes. Perfect example: Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult.


While these two were working on the X-Men franchise – Lawrence was Mystique and Holt was Beast – Jennifer was blue. Like literally blue. For her role, she had to be covered from head to toe in blue paint. In order to get this paint off her person, she had to use an unexpected beauty item: shaving cream. Jennifer told Extra, “It is really good for taking paint off.”

However, boyfriend Nicholas Hoult was not a fan of this blue paint-removing routine. “Nick used to hate it because I would come home smelling like a man and, like, too tired,” Lawrence added“I was like, ‘Don’t touch me, I’m too tired,’ and he was like, ‘You smell like a dude’.”

Considering that Jennifer Lawrence is basically a goddess here on earth, that shaving cream must have had a seriously strong scent. But hey, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do when she’s covered in blue paint.

Lesson learned: Beauty products can apparently make or break our love lives.
