Unlikely couple alert! It seems as though Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin are dating. Yes, that Chris Martin. Coldplay frontman and ex-husband of Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Martin, is dating our favorite red carpet carb-loader JLaw.
I'm just going to need a minute to process this information. Neither has confirmed the coupling, but multiple sources have confirmed to E! News that the couple has been spotted spending quality time together since June, when Lawrence broke up with her X-Men co-star Nicholas Hoult.
Martin has been on his own (sort of) since he consciously uncoupled from Gwyneth Paltrow after more than a decade of marriage. The co-parents of Apple and Moses are reportedly still living together, although she is now dating Brad Falchuk from Glee. No word on whether the foursome ever go on double dates.
Lawrence made known her love for the British in an interview earlier this year, telling The Sun, "I'm a big fan of all things British ... I get to spend some time there now and again and I like that I can go for fish and chips wearing the most awful outfit and it's cool, you know?"
Heeeeey, you know who's British? Chris Martin.
You know, now that I think about it, this actually kind of makes sense. I mean, JLaw is basically the antithesis of GOOP-y Gwyneth, isn't she? I mean, this is the girl that ruined one of her American Hustle dresses because she got Doritos dust on the white fabric and stained it. Gywneth probably can't even say "Doritos" without her noes turning up.
Gwyn is all about the image, the sanctimony, the sophistication of everything being just so. Jen gets excited over pockets in her dress. Yeah, I can kinda see how she'd be appealing to Chris Martin at this point in his life.
Do you think this is an odd coupling?
