Are Liam Hemsworth & Jennifer Lawrence single & hitting it at Cannes?

Jennifer Lawrence Liam Hemsworth

Somehow, I knew this story was coming sooner or later, and I bet Jennifer Lawrence knew it too since she already admitted to getting a heads up when the tabloids set her up with Bradley Cooper. I don’t really believe this story in the slightest, so let’s dispense with formalities and head into setup mode.

Jennifer and Liam Hemsworth have both been in Cannes for the past several days to promote Catching Fire and attend the endless stream of parties. Jennifer’s also representing Dior while Liam looks like a million bucks in Dolce & Gabbana. Jennifer is currently unattached (and not back together with Nicholas Hoult) and Liam presumably has at least one foot out the door of his relationship with Miley Cyrus. So of course, In Touch has published a new story that boasts, “finally free from their long-term relationships, the sexy costars give full-on PDA in Cannes.” LOL:

Liam Hemsworth

It’s on for Hunger Games costars Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth! The long rumored couple were finally caught canoodling in public while in Cannes, France — in the VIP section of the Hunger Games: Catching Fire party at Baoli on May 18. “Liam and Jennifer were flirting all night long,” an eyewitness tells Star. “They were giggling and couldn’t stop touching each other! Jennifer kept putting her hand on his knee while Liam leaned in, whispering in her ear. The electricity between them was off the charts!”

Pals say that Liam, 23, has always been into Jennifer, 22, but never acted on his feelings because he was with Miley Cyrus since 2009. Jennifer was also tied down by actor Nicholas Hoult, but she ended their two-year relationship in January. Now that they’re both single, they’ve been getting close — and the sparks are flying!

Liam thinks very highly of Jennifer as a well-respected, serious actress, which he finds very attractive. “She’s secure with herself — which is a change from Miley, who always needed attention,” says an insider. “Jennifer is really his ideal woman, while Miley has turned into a trainwreck and her hard partying is a turnoff. Liam believes that he and Jennifer are much better suited — and both of them are anxious to see where their relationship goes!”

What a strange assumption that Liam and Jennifer were “flirting all night” because Liam kept talking directly into her ear at what was certainly a very loud party. No one ever saw the two lock lips, and I don’t buy Jennifer touching Liam’s leg as evidence of romance because she’s a very touchy-feely type of friend. Besides, Liam is allegedly still enjoying regular trysts at the home of January Jones & JLaw is too smart to step into that mess.

There’s also a story in this week’s Star that says Liam is still living with Miley, but they’re sleeping in separate rooms; supposedly, Liam feels too awful about Miley’s state of mind and just can’t leave, and it’s Miley who refuses to take off her engagement ring. Oh man:

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth called it quits after he was caught leaving a pre-Osacr party with “Mad Men” star January Jones in February. But the former couple still have some unvinished business. “He’s living at her place in LA,” a friend of Miley’s reveals. “But they’re not sleeping in the same bed; she’s in the master, and he’s in a guest room.” So why hasn’t Liam left? An insider close to the former couple says the Hunger Games star, 23, is concerned about Miley, 20, who still won’t take off the 3.5 carat engagement ring he gave her in June. “Miley and Liam have broken up before, and she unraveled,” says the source. “She was crying and calling and texting him all the time. Everyone was really worried for her, especially Liam.” Despite everything that’s happened, he cares about her, says a pal: “He’s a good guy. He loves her, but he knows that they’re not right for each other. He just wants to make sure that she’s in a good place before he moves out and they officially announce their split.”

Dude needs to pull that bandaid off. I think Liam is a douche for cheating on Miley with January, but he’s not making it any easier by stringing her along. Just move out and be done with it, right?

Meanwhile, a Miley source (obviously) says that she and Liam have totally made up and that they kissed on May 10 at her house. Whatever. As much as I don’t believe that Liam and JLaw are, like, totally doing it …. I believe even less that Miley and Liam are just fine.

    Wow JLaw looks so gorgeous.
    Anyway this all reminds me of my own very bad breakup in my mid twenties. I was begging a cheater to stay with me. What an idiot, right?! But it can be so hard to accept the end of what you thought was a lifelong relationship. In the end I had an “aha” moment and realized I didn’t deserve it, and I finally walked and never looked back. No one can have that realization for you, You have to have it on your own. Hopefully Miley sees the light soon and accepts the pain so she can move forward with her life. Very sad and very relatable.

  2. marie says:

    was this the party where she texted all night? Isn’t Miley still wearing her ring?I don’t believe it. I will say, I really like Jenifer’s haircut and am quite jealous that I can’t pull it off, looks like a nice summer style.

    Miley needs end it, she’s looking very foolish. (and yes I get she’s young but COME ON)

    • Erinn says:

      I cut about 8″ of my hair off last week, and it’s the same length as Jennifer’s and styled similarly. I’m still not sure how much I like it though – it’s a huge change. It’s supposed to be a pretty flattering length though – I’ve even lightened it up a bit, though more of an ombre so I don’t have to constantly go get my roots done.

    If I ever get caught doing something, I want it to be canoodling, something like:

    “Ms. Eyre was caught canoodling a cabbage while sporting a fashionable new bonnet”

  4. pretty says:

    oh my god. that Finnick dude is SO NOT HOT. WHAT!!
    And where is Josh??? well he’d probably look like Liam and Jen’s son when the three of them pose together but he’s seens so sweet…
    i dont’ know how they’re gonna turn that dude into sexy gorgeous Finnick but whatever… he looks old and short and not hot

  5. magpie says:

    JLaw’s hair is a great length/cut for her. She looks fab.

  6. Lia says:

    I don’t buy this. The tabs tried hooking her up with both Josh and Liam during the first movie. I’m surprised they haven’t tried that with Sam claflin (finnick) even though he’s in a relationship(tabs don’t care they keep pushing the Liam angle)

  7. anneesezz says:

    What the heck is that guy wearing? I’m not sure how this guy is supposed to be Finnick, but we’ll see.

  8. Talie says:

    If Jen ends up with another British or Euro dude, then we’ll know she has a type…until then, I’m curious to see her next bf.

  9. Deb says:

    Ugh he is so not finnick. Terrible casting. Jen & Liam may both be free but I don’t see them in a relaysh. I think she’s way too smart to get tangled up with him & his women dramas.

  10. doofus says:

    DAMN, Lawrence looks GORGEOUS.

  11. Ari says:

    I honestly for some reason think that Liam is SO NOT HER TYPE for some reason I think she digs the lankier dudes like her ex or something I dont know why lol…

  12. IrishGirl says:

    Well, this story is one for the bullshit bin…it originated in Star magazine, which means that the other hilarious BS stories they were running before about Jennifer Lawrence weren’t flying (see earlier comment regarding bullshit bin). So, in true third rung tabloid fashion, Star has fallen back on that time honored cheesy tabloid BS rumor: Attractive, popular lead actress is having a fling with attractive co-star. Star = BULLSHIT. Anyway, in other news, Jennifer Lawrence looks absolutely gorgeous.

  13. I could ship this! They are both hot and maybe she can give him some acting lessons?

  14. MisJes says:

    I think they are just genuinely good friends.

    Their “flirting” seems to be nothing more than trying to hold a conversation over a loud party, and I doubt there was anything sexual behind putting her hand on his knee (lol)- Jennifer is just a touchy-feely kind of person.

    I remember the article you’re talking about Bedhead, where Jennifer said that the tabloid running the story of her taking up with a co-star let her decide who it would be (between Bradley Cooper and Sam Claflin) and she chose Bradley because she loves Sam’s fiance Laura, and didn’t want it to affect her.

    I thought it was a lovely, considerate thing for Jennifer to do and very sweet that she wanted to protect Sam and Laura’s relationship.

    • Danny says:

      Anyone who see the hunger games cast interviews and promo see how she behaves around Josh and Sam. They all act like sibling and she said thousand times that. But with Liam a get a different vibe. There is great attraction there.

  15. Jenna says:

    I’m not sure I’d ship a full on relationship, but as soon as Liam ends it with Miley and cuts all ties with January…I’d ship a fling. Those two are hot together. :P

  16. Dedrie says:

    Miley gonna freak out and date Kanye.. top that!?

  17. Athena says:

    I agree that they do look hot together…but I also agree that Jennifer Lawrence is way too smart to get mixed up in Hemsworths relationship troubles. I tend to believe that Lawrence has a type, which is lanky, British, quiet and unassuming type of guy.

  18. Anya says:

    this is obviously a BS story that we all see coming and i’m pretty sure that will comeback in November again. I really don’t see them in a relationship because they aren’t each others type but they are young, single, hot and will be working together for months and definitly wouldn’t be surprise if indee they had a fling. Jen is gonna be single for a while, she is working non stop and is trying to move on from her ex and eventually she will date guy. The problem is that she is so famous and the media won’t stop until they get pictures from her hooking up with someone and the more famous and hotter the guy the better will be. pattinson rumor will be coming too, wait and see!

  19. Gabi says:

    Poor Jennifer! Media won’t leave her alone as long as she stays single. She won’t be able to look or smile for a man without being linked to him.

  20. PowerGirl says:

    Hollywood is so sexist! Jennifer is the america sweetheart and people obviously can’t accept she wants to stay single and focus on her work. They have to make her date someone for gossip sake. She is a very independent woman that got her success on her own she doesn’t need a men on her side. People are so used to those tipical hollywood girls only known for dating like Swift but Jen is not the tipical girl and thank god for that!

    • Bijlee says:

      …huhhhh? I mean there were rumors of her with other people even when she was dating hoult. Also I wish people would stop with this. The media routinely speculates about men as well. Routinely linking them up with anything that has to legs. Case in point skarsgard, dicaprio (eww), pattinson, hemsworth (eww), bcoop, fassbender, even hoult, etc etc etc. you don’t like swiftly that’s fine, but what’s the need to put her in competition with JLaw? How does that in anyway stop this whole women should compete with one another thing??? Either way I think worshipping any celebrity is ridonkulous. I like JLaw but come on! She’s not really changing the Hollywood game or revolutionizing anything. She’s doing good work as an actress that’s it.

  21. Mussycat says:

    Liam’s people wishes he dated Jennifer Lawrence. Definitly would be a 180 turn from Miley and January. It would help clean his image. Jen is class all the way. They would be the hotter couple. I’m sure will be hearing more rumors about them as Catching Fire promotion starts in full power but in reality its a long shot. I just see some harmless flirting happening.

    Someone’s finally getting J-Law’s hair and make up right!!
