Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult are reportedly not engaged after the rumour mill began to whirl yesterday when the star was spotted wearing a ring on her wedding finger.

The American Hustle actress sparked engagement rumours when she was spotted out and about with boyfriend and X-Men: Days of Future Past co-star Hoult wearing a sparkly ring but a source has denied the rumours saying it's simply just a ring.

Entertainmentwise quotes a source close to the couple as saying, "These are simply rumours. No truth and she is not wearing an engagement ring. It's just a ring."
