JLaw & Chris Martin celebrated her birthday on a ‘low-key’ vineyard date


Jennifer Lawrence

My kingdom for a Martin Lawrence photo. Not really, but I can’t wait until someone whips out their iPhone and catches Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin together. For now, we’re only getting surprise confirmations that they two have been quietly dating for a few months. Chris blew kisses towards the VIP section of a Coldplay concert where JLaw was seated. And we heard some “no kidding” reports that Chris was so into Jennifer because she’s nothing like Gwyneth Paltrow. I don’t see that as a knock against Goop as much as true human behavior. Even when people have a physical “type,” they often enjoy dating someone who is very unlike their long-term ex. Do you think that Chris will accept Goop’s ice bucket nom? She didn’t nominate JLaw, but I wouldn’t expect her to do so.

E! Online has some news about the unlikely couple and their top-secret vineyard date:

Sounds like things are heating up between Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin.

Barely one week after E! News exclusively revealed that the Oscar winner and the Coldplay frontman have been seeing each other since late June, a source tells us that the two recently enjoyed a romantic afternoon at the Wolffer Estate Vineyard in New York, where the pair presumably celebrated Lawrence’s birthday together just a few days before the actress rang in the big 2-4.

“They were there on a date,” the source dished, adding that their outing took place less than two weeks ago. “They were very low-key, nobody realized who they were.”

“The setting was super-romantic. They watched the sun go down together, then quietly left,” the insider continued, noting that it’s believed the two both sampled wines.

[From E! Online]

I believe this story happened because it’s coming from E!, which usually gets things right. The date probably happened around the time Coldplay stopped in NYC and Jennifer was in town too. I wonder how this relationship will play out in the long run. Chris tours all over the world, and soon it will be time for JLaw to start promoting Mockingjay: Part I. Speaking of which, director Francis Lawrence says both Mockingjay parts will have distinctly separate stories. I suspect some substantial rewrites have taken place from the book. One benefit: Elizabeth Bank’s Effie will appear in the films. Thank goodness. Effie is one of the best parts of the whole franchise.

I hope JLaw and Chris get papped together soon!

    I wonder if she’ll move to LDN. She has said she loves it there and is an Anglophile.

  2. Abbott says:

    So just like an Enya video but with 80% more farting and honking. Congrats, kids.

  3. Wilma says:

    I am so dissapointed in her.

  4. InvaderTak says:

    Well this is still pretty boring. Yes we need pictures bedhead!

  5. blue marie says:

    I think he should accept it but have JLaw dump the water on him. A tad bit mean and bitchy, but I’m okay with it.

  6. Alexis says:

    I’m not a JLaw fan, but I feel like she could do better.

    • Dani2 says:

      She definitely can, even in terms of a super casual, purely fun regular hook up. There are way hotter guys she can rebound with. Even the lesser Hemsworth would be better.

      • Liv says:

        OMG, yes! Hemsworth for a hook up would be so great! What is she thinking? I just can’t picture them together!

    • T.C. says:

      Someone her age and maturity level would have been better. She just turned 24 but she comes across as much younger than her age in interviews. Not an old soul. Too young to be dating an almost divorced father of two.

      • Liv says:

        I really want to know what her mother say about that. She seems very put together and a voice of reason. I can’t imaging that she’s thrilled that her 24-year-old daughter dates a soon-to-be divorced father of two.

      • Missy says:

        Maybe her immaturity was behind the split with her ex? So she’ll show him?

    • homegrrrl says:

      I agree, he seems uptight and she is obviously anything but…me thinks this tryst a a farce…

  7. Jaderu says:

    “The setting was super-romantic. They watched the sun go down together, then quietly left,”

    Something about these 2 sentences doesn’t scream Jennifer Lawrence to me.

  8. Marty says:

    So I know what Chris Martin is getting out of this, but what is JLaw? Not knocking Chris or anything, it’s just that’s a lot of baggage to bring to a new relationship.

  9. Migdalia says:

    I doubt “nobody realized who they were”. Give me a break. It’s super rare that when Jennifer goes out in public no one shouts it out on twitter or tumblr, but hey maybe it was a low key vineyard where no one cared.

  10. Hissyfit says:

    Nooooo! I still can’t believe that they are really dating! Jen, you’re beautiful and you have a hot career, you can do so much better!

  11. Alex says:

    I find it so suspicious that neither of them were papped together yet Jen was spotted the entire time she was in NYC. And e news is the only place where these “sources” are going?
    And you know what this sounds like? Sounds like another new couple that took a weekend getaway recently…hmmmm. This couldn’t possibly be in retaliation to that!

    • Bridget says:

      E! isn’t usually the go-to source for scoops like this, so I’m giving a serious side-eye too. They clearly have someone in either Martin or Lawrence’s camp, but it’s a strange outlet to choose for this.

  12. mimi says:

    I like this story about Chris Martin and Jennifer Lawrence and hope it’s true but E! News doesn’t always get their stories right. Their story about Robert Pattinson hooking up with Riley Keough right after his breakup with Kristen Stewart was false. Riley and her mother Lisa Marie Pressley both publicly denied it numerous times. Also the Dylan Penn and Robert Pattinson dating rumors were false as well. Dylan was dating someone else at the time and laughed off the dating rumors by publicly stating they were “bullsh*t” in a magazine interview.

    • Esmom says:

      This doesn’t sounds right at all and this specific story reads like BS. I feel like my brain can’t even process the idea of them as a couple.

  13. FingerBinger says:

    I have no issue with the May/December thing. Chris Martin just seems like oatmeal. Maybe she’s wild and crazy and needs someone with a calming effect because Chris looks like he would put someone to sleep. Then again maybe he’s wild and crazy in private.

  14. SpookySpooks says:

    I find it so strange that Chris who seems so low key and hates interviews and such would date someone as attention hungry as Jennifer. But then again, he was married to Goop.

    • anne says:

      please , you don’t like her, it’s ok.
      Nobody has see jennifer since cannes festival, she has been in Nyc, and no photos.
      She’s no attention whore. You only see her for promote the hunger series.

      • SpookySpooks says:

        She isn’t in the media all the time because she doesn’t need to be. If her fame wasn’t as big, I wonder if she wouldn’t post pictures on instagram and such.
        Besides, I didn’t mean it like that. I meant that, when she is in the spotlight, all eyes have to be on her. She’ll do or say something silly just to be the centre of attention.

  15. Jaded says:

    I can’t imagine the conversation they must have over a romantic dinner…

    CM: Part of me is so conflicted – my feelings for you are so deep…yet so shallow at the same time…

    JL: [RIPS A GIANT BELCH]…you know that clam chowder is giving me the dry heaves man…

    • mia girl says:

      This is sounds so perfect that you must have actually overheard it
      Come on, fess up. Clearly you were E!’s source re: Martin Lawrence’s romantic date.

      • Jaded says:

        Thanks Mia Girl, but I cannot tell a lie…I’m not the source, I just have an over-active imagination and a general disdain for pompous celebrities :)

  16. jinni says:

    If no one recognized them while they were on a date, how was the source able to describe their entire date? Unless someone on their team wants everyone to know that they are in fact together. Now the question is which one of these two is feeding E! these stories?

  17. Leaflet says:

    I’m really beginning to not like JLaw and what’s left of my adoration for her after the last Hunger Games movie will wane off. Then my affection for her will probably move to seeing her as “barely likable “and eventually when I finally stop seeing her as Katniss Everdeen, I will probably not care for her at all. Just can’t stand a desperate woman.

    • Jules says:

      @Leaflet: WTF?….desperate how?. There has not even been any confirmation, no credible proof that these two are actually a couple. I won’t believe anything without proof and even then, it certainly would not harm my appreciation of Jennifer Lawrence as an actress or my enjoyment of Mockingjay or anything else Lawrence stars in for that matter.

      • Leah says:

        Plus i think its Martins camp that is leaking this info. Note how it came out as soon as the news about Goop and her jump off.

      • Leaflet says:

        @ Jules,
        But her being desperate is my opinion though. If the story about her and Martin being a couple is true ( which I believe it to be because she covered her head with her jacket when the story about the being a couple first broke) I believe Jennifer to be desperate for dating a man who is not divorced yet. I don’t care that Gwyneth has moved on. I had a lot more respect for Jennifer and now I don’t have that anymore. There are a lot of unmarried single men or divorced single men out there. I jus don’t see why she couldn’t hook up with one of them. In my eyes she I don’t have as much love for her as I used to. Also, it makes sense that I would not care for her as much as I once did for her as an actress if I don’t care for her as a person.

    • Jaded says:

      Leaflet, there’s nothing – n.o.t.h.i.n.g. – desperate about Jennifer. If anything she’s in a position where life is her oyster right now. And why not hang out with Chris Martin? He’s a talented musician, probably an interesting guy, albeit a bit of an insufferable wanker, but how much of that was Goop’s influence? She’s young, gorgeous, wildly rich and enjoying the fruits of her talent and hard work. Let her learn and grow through new relationships. That’s how we develop as human beings, by taking risks with relationships, and learning what we like/don’t like. I give this a pass – it will likely not last but everyone, including myself at the ripe old age of 61, is still deriving knowledge about life from taking a chance on relationships; some have been successful, some not, but at least I’m still willing to learn and grow at my advanced age :)

      • Leaflet says:

        @JADED,
        More than likely, I still won’t see JLaw in the same light. I’m not saying that I will hater her, I just won’t have that same admiration I first had for her as the girl on fire. I still like the Potter stars and the other Hunger Games stars just as much as I used to, but JLaw will remain as “lacking” in my sight.

      • CC says:

        You forgot: with a lot of baggage and ugly as hell. Personally I don’t care how “deep” he is and how “great” his music might be (as far as I’m concerned, it’s not). A 24 year old man or woman can do much better than dating a 37 year old. Especially a 24 year old at the top of her game like Jennifer Lawrence.

        And I am 37, so I speak from experience. And I have no kids, or relationship baggage, and as sure as hell more infantile that Chris Martin. And it still wouldn’t make sense for me to date a 24 year old guy. And I know for a fact that when I was 24, I sure as hell didn’t want to date a 37 year old man.

    • darkdove says:

      get over it his marriage is over, they can date who ever they want

      • Leaflet says:

        @Dark Dove,
        So in your in your opinion, I must remain a fan and like Jennifer and support her in the same way you do because “it’s not my marriage, and they can date whoever they want.” You need to learn how to talk to people. Do you see how JADED was trying to persuade me in a likable fashion. As a fan that once admired JLaw a great deal, JADED did not attack me for my change of view but yet showed me why I should give this actress another chance. There’s a lot of ugliness going on in the world right now, I don’t need yours.

  18. Jules says:

    I don’t believe these two are a couple for one second (LOL!). I really have a hard time believing that no paps have managed to get any photos yet…no direct quotes and all of it coming from E!. I think all of this just might have been hatched as a PR scheme by Steve Huvane to take the focus off Paltrow and her new jumpoff. I think that perhaps they went out on one or two dates…maybe. Perhaps that was all Paltrow needed for Huvane to spin it into something it is not.

    • jinni says:

      If she didn’t want to have attention put on her new relationship than why did Gwyneth give US Weekly the okay through her publicist to put out the story about her and Brad being in a relationship?
      It sounds like you’re just trying to shoehorn her into a situation that has nothing to do with her just because one or both people involved are your faves and you don’t like how people are reacting to this pairing. What does Gwyneth really gain by having people think that JLaw and Chris had a romantic dinner?

      It seems to me that someone on either Chris or JLaw’s team is feeding this info to E! and I think that someone might be Chris. Especially since the chick he was originally left Gwyneth for (Alexa Chung) had moved on to another rocker and left Chris in the dust. Who’s to say that all of these stories about him and JLaw aren’t actually being released in order to make Alexa jealous and see that he has moved on from her ” big, green eyes”. Because out of all the people involved he seems to be the only one that has anything to gain from these stories.

      • Jules says:

        Giving an interview to US magazine actually puts Paltrow in a good light…she’s okay with all of it. It acts as a distraction away from Paltrows own affair with a man who was still married when he and Paltrow started seeing each other. My problem with all of this is how quickly people believe it without any concrete proof. I do agree that Martin’s PR team could very well be behind all this but, then so are Paltrow’s for the reasons mentioned above. In any event, provide some kind of proof…until then, nope I don’t buy it.

      • jinni says:

        @Jules:
        I get what you are saying about the Us Weekly story being good in that at least Paltrow gets to control the narrative of the gossip around her new relationship. What I don’t get is how you came up with the idea that she was getting her publicist to put out quotes about Chris and JLaw or make everyone think they were dating. To me that doesn’t make any sense since all of this news isn’t putting Gwyneth in a good light nor is it getting her any real sympathy. Most people are all rah rah Chris and downing Gwyneth, so I don’t get how this is deflecting from her new relationship that most people don’t even seem to care about since the guy isn’t that famous. If anything Chris’s attraction to JLaw is only making Gwyneth look worst. Which makes me think he is the one behind all of the stories.

  19. serena says:

    I’m not feeling this couple at all.

  20. Leah says:

    Weirdest couple ever.
    As for him I can’t stop thinking about his creepy comment on the voice when he asked a teenage girl to think about Harry styles or him when singing a love song.

  21. K.B. says:

    So I guess this means that this is really happening? Jennifer, you’re doing rebounding wrong. You’re supposed to rebound with a ridiculously hot man around your age who maybe sometimes acts like a jerk. Not a middle-aged, humorless, father of two.

    • SpookySpooks says:

      HAve you ever seen an interview of Chris? He is really really funny.

    • maybeiamcrazy says:

      This so much. JLaw can have any young hot guy around and she goes for Chris Martin, father of two who is not even divorced yet? I don’t get it at all. If I was her, I would be hanging out with male models or athletes (adonis!).

  22. Luca26 says:

    I really don’t care about this couple anymore I just wanted to say I’ve been to Wolffer a few times and it’s beyond lovely and although the wine isn’t anything special it’s a romantic setting it’s also a pretty cheap date considering .

  23. Francis says:

    Hahaha. Surprised by this pairing. Wow.

    He certainly likes blonde,attractive , academy award winning actresses.

  24. lucy2 says:

    If all this does end up being true, I’m amazed they kept it quiet for 2 months.

  25. Leslie says:

    I just can’t picture these two together. She is so much hotter than he is. Oh, well, I don’t get the Charlize Theron and Sean Penn hookup either.

    • Francis says:

      But at least Charlize and Sean are age range understandable and been around for awhile, in their circles have crossed paths over the years but because both were in relationship, marriage, never together until now.

      Chris Martin and Jlaw, I just don’t get from HER side. He’s divorced( newly separated ) father.

      Sure I can see what Chris likes in her, in some ways she’s a younger freer,more fun, exciting version of a young Gwen in a certain way. JLaw is a Oscar winner, top of her game, gorgeous, blonde, sought after “it” girl, respected actress of her generation.

      I just am very surprised by JLAW ‘s choice of Chris.
      Maybe Chris Martjn has some major powers of persuasion in his rap with women. The guy must be truly gifted in knowing how to woo some women, but I just don’t see why JLAW would want all the baggage he brings to her , basically she doesn’t need it.
      Maybe JLAW is not as smart as has been assumed?

  26. heidi says:

    Funny that Gwnyth wants to pour some ice water on him/this.

  27. Tiffany says:

    I will believe it when I see them dry humping on top of Doritos. Even then they will still be boring.

  28. babyb says:

    somehow reminds me of the kristen stewart – rupert sanders icky fiasco

  29. thedarklady says:

    Who’s to say that these two are even together?
    JL’s body looks amazing – much better then Rihanna’s (there was a lot of gushing on that post).

  30. Lux says:

    I just can’t get on board with this couple. It’s just too weird.

  31. BlackBetty says:

    I can’t imagine them together. He puts me to sleep. Coldplay is really overrated I think.

  32. melain says:

    Yucky. I just could NOT bring myself to go for a man who pursued and married a goop. He’s cute and a rock star. But seriously, something is wrong with him. The goopster is a deal breaker.

    Run Jennifer. You’re both smart and fast. Save yourself!

  33. Ellis Alter says:

    She is young, rich, attractive, and has the world at her feet. Why would she want “low-key” on a 24th birthday? Bag that. What a waste, I don’t care who you are, that is no way to spend youth.
