The Hunger Games actress had previously admitted that this had been a planned decision with the two wanting to avoid being known as a ‘celebrity couple’.

She said: "You don't want your relationship to be in the press, but at the same time - and this is only a theory - the more you try and keep it secret, the more the media tries to crack it open.

“Maybe there's less pressure if you admit you are dating. Admitting that is just an experiment. I'm going to see how it goes."

She admitted: “He has absolutely no idea how good-looking he is... I think a lot of women and men hate me because of that.”
