Jennifer Lawrence has ‘some amazing similarities’ to Goop, says Goop source

Jennifer Lawrence

I think the best part of the Martin Lawrence coupling is that I have an excuse to revisit some slightly dated Jennifer Lawrence photos. This really was a great coat from Dior. No wait. My favorite part is hearing about their quiet relationship and vineyard dates but never receiving photo evidence. No acknowedgement at all from either JLaw or Chris. The only person who has confirmed that this relationship exists is Gwyneth Paltrow. That’s funny.

The fact that Goop has sent out her posse and talked about how happy she is for Chris — this tells me the coupling is real. Goop also sent a source to E! Online to counteract the anti-Goop talk. Goop reportedly raves about what “a good match” JLaw is for Chris. Why? Because “There are actually some amazing similarities between Jennifer and Gwyneth and how they view life and career, and so Gwyneth knows that ultimately Jennifer has the power to make Chris happy in the long term.” HA.

This week’s issue of Us Weekly has a new installment of Martin Lawrence fan fiction:

Chris Martin used to do it for Gwyneth Paltrow, but now Jennifer Lawrence is the muse that inspires him.

The Coldplay singer has fallen hook, line and sinker for the American Hustle star and is said to be writing songs for her.

Chris, 37, is churning out the material while spiriting Jennifer, 24, away on cosy getaways for two, Us Weekly is reporting.

“He writes her songs and loves taking her to private romantic spots,” a source told the publication. “Chris is sweeping Jen off her feet. That’s his thing.”

It’s certainly having a swaying effect on Jennifer, who saw Coldplay’s concert in the UK and was mesmerised by Martin.

“Jen was blown away at his London show. His music is absolutely part of the attraction,” the source told Us Weekly, adding: “The better she gets to know him, the more she likes him.”

Vom. Some of you got upset when I said that “lots of celebrities like bad music” when it comes to Coldplay. I stand by that statement, which is only an opinion. Coldplay is like elevator music to me. How do you feel about JLaw possibly inspiring a new Coldplay era? I guess if Chris starts writing lyrical masterpieces about pizza and fart jokes, then we’ll know this Us Weekly story is true.

By the way, I still don’t get it …

    I never thought Chris Martin would do a showmance thing, but I guess that’s whats going on here. Coldplay are touring soon and this “relationship” started right before the new Coldplay single came out.

  2. Jax says:

    I would love it if M or L denied the dating at this point……since Goop is the only one talking about it.

  3. PHD Gossip says:

    I thinkts about chris choosing a woman who would make goopy insecure. Well played, Chris.

  4. Abbott says:

    I do not have the appropriate enzyme that will let me digest this relationship.

  5. Teresa_Maria says:

    “Coldplay is like elevator music to me”
    I stand with you on this one.
    And before anyone starts yelling – it’s only an opinion and -I prefer it to, say, panpipe, anytime.

    Oh yes I see them too!
    Blonde= check

    Academy awards= check
    deserving academy awards= missing

    • Cari says:

      +10000. I thought I wasn’t going to hear about Lawrence for a long time (at least until her next movie when her PR team will again show other PR teams how it’s done) but I guess it’s just wishful thinking.
      So true about the last point. Jlaw is like Milli Vanilli of Hollywood…

      • Helo says:

        @Cari: Oh, come on…Milli Vanilli of Hollywood?. Bullshit. Regardless of what I think about this PR created “relationship” the fact is, is that there is no denying that Jennifer Lawrence is very deserving of all the critical praise she receives. In fact, it’s praise she has been receiving long before Lawrence became a household name from established critics, filmmakers, actors, etc.,…so, that’s that.

      • starrywonder says:

        @Helo the only thing I am going to say is that X-Men Days of Future Past she was not the strongest in that movie at all. In fact I find myself getting impatient everytime she appeared on screen. And I thought she was awful in American Hustle. I loved her in Winter’s Bone and thought she kicked butt in the Hunger Games though. And I thought she was good in Silver Linings Playbook but don’t know if she really should have gotten an Oscar for that role. I think she hands down deserved it for Winter’s Bone though.

      • paola says:

        I was actually referring to the NON deserving Oscar Gwyneth Paltrow won for Shakespear in love.
        I’m still not very sure Jennifer is such an amazing actress.. too much hype around her all the time. I am biased mos of the times and I can’t see if she really is good or if the whole world wants her to be that good.

      • Liz says:

        Agreed Helo, she was unknown when she was nominated for Winters Bone and only an actress with serious skill and talent can gain that sort of praise from a tiny (extremely tiny! ) indie film.

      • Sunny says:

        I think JLaw is a tremendous actress. Didn’t love her in X-Men but I thought that was a miscast. I thought she was very good in SLP, amazing in Winter’s Bone, strong in the Hunger Games, and wonderful and subtle in her bit role in Like Crazy.

        I think she will turn out to be one of the best actresses of her generation. I was disappointed she won a Oscar so soon because I thought Emmanuelle R deserved it for Amour and that Jennifer will certainly have better, more deserving roles than the one she played in SLP in the future.

      • SpookySpooks says:

        She was great in Winter’s Bone, waaay too over the top in American Hustle, absolutely outshined by BCoop in SLP, good in Hunger Games and quite bad in X-Men. After Winter’s Bone she’s just playing an exagerated version of herself, IMO, and I fear she will be like Natalie Portman, never develop past the skill she showed in her youth.

      • Helo says:

        @Starrywonder, paola, Liz and Sunny: Agree with you all…and while the gossipy /love life stuff is fun to speculate about (of course it is because here I am, right? LOL!) I’m always much more interested in Jennifer Lawrence the “actress” first.

      • Happyhat says:

        @SpookySpooks – damn yes, Natalie Portman. I’m totally with you there. JLaw is good – just exactly how good I guess depends on your disposition. Natalie Portman was good, and has now vanished in a puff of pretension. Only time will tell if anyone will mature well enough to keep acting.

    • starrywonder says:

      LOL. I wish I cared about this fauxmance or real romance at all. It’s just gross to me because I find Chris Martin totally unappealing. I never got why Gwyn Paltrow was with him anyway.

    • Hmmm says:

      I can’t think of one Oscar win in recent history that was more ridiculous than JLaw. Her acting in SLP was a complete joke.

    • Kimberly says:

      Ha haaaaa!!! Good one .
      Best way to get ur point across in a short and simple way :D

  7. jinni says:

    If Jennifer’s similarities to Gwyneth are the reasons why she has the power to make Chris happy then why didn’t he just stay with Gwyneth?

    Also, I don’t get the attraction to him either. But if Jennifer’s last boyfriend is any indication she seems to go for frail looking men. Chris looks like he could be Nicholas’s father; maybe that’s the attraction. Maybe she just misses Nicholas and has settled for this older, worn out looking version of him.

  8. hutter says:

    I LOVE A Rush of Blood to The Head. Anything since… not so much. I think Chris is quite difficult to be around. He’s really funny and charming but has all of that doubt about everything as well.

    • Vesta says:

      Yup, Coldplay’s two first albums were good. But then, Chris Martin met Goop…

    • K says:

      I was once part of an online community when Coldplay were first becoming successful with Yellow, and a girl there was delighted, because her ex (who by all accounts was not a nice guy. At all) had been to a British public school with CM, a year or two above him, and they’d been putting a band together, and held auditions. And CM auditioned, and they were all sniggery because they were sporty, popular, with girlfriends and he was this quiet dork. So they said thanks but no thanks. The particularly funny bit was one of them was desperate to be a rock star, to the point Mummy and Daddy had apparently built a little recording studio in the basement. And he’d knocked back what would turn into Coldplay. I can’t remember whether wannabe rock star was headed to the army or dentistry when I was told this story in 2001 or 2002, but it was something similarly dour. And the punchline was that the guys who’d knocked him back were fairly dismissive of Parachutes, saying Yellow was the only really good song and they’d fade back into obscurity soon enough. Then Rush of Blood to the Head came out.

      Idk, I can’t get my head around any of this Martin Lawrence business. But I do think a bunch of middle-aged British men will still be wondering what might have been, if they’d let this kid into their high school band. Him dating JLaw while pushing 40 can’t help.

  9. Aussie says:

    I beg to differ, Bedhead, but I do get it.
    Coldplay may not be big in America, but in the rest of the world, Chris is much more famous than Jennifer. She is surely aware of how big he is, due to having an English ex.
    If someone is gaining further notoriety out of this, it is definitely JLaw.

  10. Jules says:

    Fake, Fake, Fake….absolutely no photo evidence (not even a random person with a camera phone) no direct qoutes almost all of it springing from E! news and Goop sources only.

    Stephen Huvane is earning his paycheck with this gig for Goopster in an effort to take the focus off the fact that Paltrow stole Ben Falchuk away from his wife of ten years. Paltrow, who is currently gracing the cover of Star mag with a headline that reads: Homewrecker….LOL!…so, set up a showmance for her estranged husband to distract attention from the damage done. Martin’s PR agent is also working overtime in an effort to keep him from looking like a scorned schmuck.

  11. Nene says:

    Ofcourse there are similarities : younger Goop and JL are both blonde, won the oscar in their 20s and Hollywood It Girl.
    I’ll bet that’s the lure or should I say what attracted Chris Martin to both.

    By the way I still don’t get this coupling at all. Sure in Hollywood nothing is shocking anymore, i wouldn’t be so surprised if Beyonce hooks up with Chris Brown ; that’s if she splits from Jay Z.

  12. Lori says:

    I just don’t understand this pairing at all. But if it pi$$es GOOP off then I’m all for it.

  13. Sullivan says:

    So far, this coupling (plus Goop) isn’t giving the delicious gossip I thought it would. In fact, it’s just dry toast gossip.

  14. Victoria 1 says:

    Both are insufferable! This can go either way. And they need a new name because I keep thinking of the comedian

  15. Talie says:

    I like them together simply because of the randomness of it all. I didn’t think jennifer Lawrence had it in her to go for someone who would create all of this drama.

  16. tracking says:

    This just sounds like such BS. I don’t get it.

  17. Hautie says:

    I am curious why Goop and her henchmen, are talking non-stop about this allege relationship.

    If anything, it seems to me that she is trying to curse it, by repeatedly talking about it. I recall Chris being very anti PR about everything personal. But here is Goop just yacking her head off about it.

    And I don’t believe for one moment, that Goop is happy about her soon to be ex-husband… allegedly dating a 24 year old. At all. Especially a Oscar winning… three time nominee one at that! Nope. I do not remotely buy into her happiness about this situation.

    I am more surprised that Goop has not figured out how to snag that billionaire… that Miranda Kerr is currently trying to land. I just don’t see Goop ever settling for a man who has to actually hustle for work. Producers are a dime a dozen in LA. And one bad show can kill a career for decades.

    Maybe she can hustle up one of those Russian’s billionaires that have ridiculous incomes. That don’t rely on the fickleness of LA to earn a living.

    • Jem says:

      Goopy is being very passive-aggressive isnt she

    • poppy says:

      i could totally see it as a being goop’s way to harass him since he is loath to be pap’ed with any lady since it “distracts” yadda yadda -whatever he claimed back in the early goop days.
      Jlaw or not, the paps are going to stalk him hard to get a confirmation pic. he’s going to have to work hard to keep anything on the down low.
      to make the paps ravenous would certainly irritate him.
      as for gwynsufferable herself, i think she is biding her time trying to figure out if this split will get her any serious movie roles -if everyone forgot how her films bomb when she has to carry one alone or a deux, she’s “grown” as a person, can be safely linked to a co-star romantically for PR, etc.
      i think the only thing that trumps her love of money is her deep insecurity and need for attention.

    • Talie says:

      She and her friends look like damn weirdos for talking about something that has nothing to do with them!

    • Nicolette says:

      Goop keeps running her mouth because she has to make the world think everything in her life is perfect. Including her marriage, her kids, her divorce, her acceptance of her soon to be ex-husband’s new relationship, and mostly herself.

    • lucy2 says:

      I agree. I feel like the more it’s talked, the shorter lived it will be. Chris always shied away from anything public with him and Goop, and Jennifer keeps her love life pretty quiet as well. Neither of them has commented and there’s not really any photos. But team Goop is awfully chatty.

    • Veronica says:

      Oh, I think her intentions are completely obvious. She has to be gracious because otherwise she’d be giving fuel to rumours that she’s as difficult as the papers claim, and highlighting the relationship when they won’t brings on the judgement of the public…which when framed the right way, makes Chris Martin look like the middle aged cliche who left a marriage of ten years only to date a woman 13 years his junior.

  18. Bored suburbanhousewife says:

    It’s obviously eating her up inside.

  19. siri says:

    ‘Cause you’re a sky, ’cause you’re a sky full of stars
    I’m gonna give you my heart
    ‘Cause you’re a sky, ’cause you’re a sky full of stars
    ‘Cause you light up the path

    ……oh well…give me Take That at any time instead- at least they didn’t pretend to be ‘deep’.

  20. eliza says:

    The biggest turn off for me would be him writing songs for me. How horrible. Ugh. I feel sorry for Jennifer. Lol.

  21. Maria says:

    what makes me wonder that we still dont have anything. normally if you follow a celeb closer you will get a feeling what kind of rumours will be in the papers or who they will date. often they are seen together with sneaky fan pictures then you have some rumours that are denied and then boom kissing pictures.
    here is NOTHING.

    that either means either thats its untrue but im sure we would have heard something. even if Jens publicists doesnt react to tabloid rumours i doubt she would like to be the pawn in the game of two bitter ex partners.
    or it means even two huge A-Listers like Jen and Chris who also went through public break ups with their famous ex partners can keep everything quiet.

    its certainly a weird coupling and the whole no evidence of it makes it kind of intruiging for me.

    • emma says:

      I know—all words, no pics. Pics or it didn’t happen!
      Plus, yeah why go through all the trouble of leaking info before if they are trying to keep things quiet. Are they just trying to get us comfortable with this very uncomfortable couple.
      Maybe JLaw is just trying to find someone in her tax bracket.

  22. Franciss says:

    I had a boyfriend – who was a rather accomplished musician – try to “serenade” me once. It was the most uncomfortable five minutes of my life. If Martin is doing this to her consistently, I feel for her. Yikes!

  23. blue marie says:

    Aww, I think they’re a perfect match. He’s the hairy mole on your butt you can’t get removed, and she’s the gas that it passes. Where’s the problem?

  24. Helo says:

    I was thinking that after all this Goop generated PR nonsense, what if Jennifer Lawrence and Nick Hoult get married this fall?…what a brilliant bait and switch that would be! (LOL!).

  25. BleedingHeartLibra says:

    Saying Jennifer Lawrence is a bit Goopy is not a compliment. Was it really her right to tell everyone what her ex is doing? Can’t she just mind her own business? That woman comes off as so self important.

  26. Veronica says:

    I don’t get it either, but I guess every young woman has the opportunity to make a dumbass dating choice. Why she chose being the rebound for an older guy, I have no idea. Hopefully, she’ll wise up by the time they’re ready for the heavy promotional season.

    (I guess if I have to be objective, he seems in line with her type? Talk, lanky, blue-eyed, blonde haired white dudes with an aversion to paperazzi. Hault doesn’t do it for me, either. JFC, let this be a short term thing so she can move on to somebody who doesn’t give me second hand embarrassment.)

  27. Stacey says:

    “Vom.” LOL

    She is so young to be getting involved with a guy with two kids. I don’t see it ever getting serious enough where she will meet his kids. It’s not like she’s going to marry Chris.

    Not like it is a HUGE deal in this day and age, but have they even filed separation or divorce papers yet?

    If I was Jlaw’s gf, I’d be like RUN girl…plenty of other sexy musician fish in the sea without ALL the insane baggage. (Not that dating men with children is bad-I am, BUT at her age- it just isn’t ideal. Is she ready to play step mommy? She’s a kid herself.) Unless, getting Goops sloppy seconds is part of the appeal? She does have a thing for Brits so that could be part of it…

  28. Kelly says:

    I don’t get his appeal either and yes Coldplay music is elevator music. No J Law is not like Gwyneth. Thankfully.

  29. kri says:

    I love it. “She’s alot like me…I know what he likes…she can be a goodmatch” somehow Goo is still in charge of the situation by giving her approval. gross. And Coldplay does suck. It’s not an’s SCIENCE!

  30. emma says:

    I don’t care how many times Goop leaks that JLaw is so similar to a young Goop, I will never believe it. It just seems more and more desperate. Like he can’t get over her, or what she once was. Blargh.

  31. Penny says:

    If he wanted the same thing, he’d stay with Goop. But I get it, Goop is tired of people calling her less attractive, less interesting, less talented, less likable, and less fun than JLaw. Better to emphasize the similarities.

  32. Miss M says:

    I don’t like this couple and I don’t know what it is…

  33. Scarlett says:

    I loved Coldplay’s first album. It was only available as an import so that surely added to the excitement. Now they just seem like washed up pop music. I don’t get it either. J-Law should aim a lil higher imo;)

  34. RobN says:

    My guess is that Goop is trying to plant the idea that Martin misses her so much that he is trying to replace her with somebody just like her. Feeds her already too large ego.

  35. GIRLFACE says:

    I don’t get it either.

  36. Camille (The Original) says:

    You think Martin is super unattractive, but Cumbersnatch is the greatest, sexiest living being ever?? Ok. Right. I see.

    p.s. no I don’t think Chris is the sexiest thing ever either, but he is better looking than some of the men that get posted about a lot on this website..

  37. Goodnight says:

    I thought JLaw was amazing in Winter’s Bone but I have never liked her. I don’t know why, she has just always rubbed me the wrong way. I think she’s decent in The Hunger Games but I also think Katniss is a pretty easy role to play. I don’t think the role demands a lot of nuance and subtly and skill.

    I remember when she flipped off the press at the Oscars. At the time you could not say a bad word about her because she was the darling of the internet and I said flipping off the press at the Oscars was classless and I got utterly lambasted.
