Gwyneth Paltrow Wants to Hang Out With Jennifer Lawrence & That's Not Weird

We all know Gwyneth Paltrow is actually Jennifer Lawrence's polar opposite. Yes, both ladies are rich, talented, gorgeous, and blonde. Both women have or are currently enjoying the affections of Coldplay's Chris Martin. But while one seems to have a bit of a (fantastic) potty mouth and can't help tripping over her designer gown at every event she attends, the other looks and seems like a marble statue come to life.

I assume there's no need to distinguish which celeb fits each description.

Well, here's some news that may change your mind about which actress is actually the coolest on Earth. Is it JLaw, 24, who adores bad reality TV and wants a guy who isn't afraid to fart in front of her? Or is it Gwyneth, 42, who is SO awesome she wants to meet her ex-husband's new, beautiful, younger girlfriend? That's right -- Gwyneth is reportedly eager to meet Jennifer.

A source told Us Weekly that the Goop founder is now ready to meet Jennifer, who has been dating her husband of more than 10 years for about two months now. Apparently, Gwyn's take on their affair is that Chris could do worse, which shoudn't offend JLaw too much, since it's pretty much the best compliment I've ever heard a woman give her ex's new lover.

The Martins decided to "consciously uncouple" in March and have managed to remain good friends, most likely because they are dedicated to providing a good example for kids Apple, 10, and Moses, 8. Gwyneth has one request of her ex when it comes to Jen, and it's a reasonable one: she wants him to wait until he introduces her to the children so that, presumably, they don't become attached to a person who may not stick around.

More from The Stir: Jennifer Lawrence Really, Really Is the Anti-Gwyneth

All in all, it sounds like Gwyneth is acting like a dream ex-wife. We like to accuse her of being uppity, and sometimes, she sure seems like she's from Planet Organic Stationary. But there are few ways she can be a better ex-partner, mom, and person than by embracing her ex-husband's new girlfriend, welcoming her to their tribe, and proving that she really does wish for Martin to be happy.

For today, at least, Gwyneth gets my "coolest girl" vote.

What do you think about Gwyneth wanting to meeting JLaw? Do you think they'll get along?
