People: Jennifer Lawrence & Chris Martin spotted on a ‘super cute’ date


Jennifer Lawrence

Almost a month has passed since we first spoke of Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin’s unlikely romance. They’ve been dating since late June. We’ve heard so many stories about their epic romance withut photo proof. The Goop endorsements have been enjoyable, but it’s time for a photo op, kids. Not that I’m thrilled about JLaw dating the king of elevator music. There is some new evidence. People has done a little puff story for the lovahs. So … this is more than an invisible summer romance. If People is running this story, then JLaw and Chris definitely want us to know that they’re a thing:

It seems like the romance rumors are true!

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin were spotted enjoying dinner together at Beverly Hills hot spot La Dolce Vita on Monday night.

“They were super cute together,” said an onlooker. “They were laughing a lot and Jennifer was acting all goofy!”

Speculation about a budding romance between Lawrence, 24, and Martin, 37, first surfaced in August, and the two have reportedly been dating since late June.

The Hunger Games actress was first seen with the Coldplay rocker when she attended one of his concerts in London in July.

A rep for Coldplay had no comment.

Lawrence split with longtime boyfriend Nicholas Hoult, 24, over the summer, while Martin separated from wife of 10 years Gwyneth Paltrow, 41, in March.

Urgh. This stung a little to read. Jennifer could do better, I know it. Chris is definitely out of his league. He’s the clear winner in this relationship. He’s also with someone who doesn’t ask for an ingredients list for every menu item. Anyway, there you have it. Official People endorsement of this weird romance.

With or without Chris, JLaw will soon be heading out into the public eye to promote Mockingjay. I hope journos don’t ask her about those stolen photos. If Jennifer wants to talk about it and brings it up on her own, fine.

Here’s a silly “trailer countdown” for Mockingjay. It’s just 15 seconds of a voiceover by President Snow as Katniss discovers a manufactured white rose. I’m also including the new Katniss poster.

    Can anyone bring over the barf buckets from the Clooney post?

    • Esmom says:

      Lol, thank you for my first big laugh of the day.

    • Lady Macbeth says:

      I have a spare one *passes bucket on to Abbott*

      Barf for me too. I can’t even imagine them together…..

    • Liv says:

      Haha!

      Gosh, how can she be with him? He’s making her unattractive. And I never had anything against him, but this couple is just no.

    • I Choose Me says:

      Bucket? I think I need a garbage bin.

      I just don’t get it. Dude is soooo unsexy to me. But it’s none of my business. *sips tea like Kermit*

  2. Linn says:

    “I hope journos don’t ask her about those stolen photos.”

    That would be great but I doubt it. Journalists aren’t excactly known for their sensitivity and empathy. If they can make a story out of something, they will.

    • Maria says:

      exactly and then they will portray her as a diva or as having a meltdown if she gets angry.

    • Abbott says:

      Her people will filter which journos she’ll talk to and what questions she’ll be asked. No one will get to ask her about it without prior approval or the interview will be shut down.

    • Adrien says:

      She’ll have a one -on-one interview for sure. Just like Rihanna after Chris Brown beating. Not sure how her PR team are gonna work this but she’s in good hands. Eventually, the press will move on coz she’s got nothing to say anymore.

    • stellalovejoydiver says:

      She is a big star with a great PR machine behind her. The questions have to be approved by them or they just gonna step into the interview. It might be mentioned by some outlets in the context of her interview, but I doubt she will get asked directly from a journo about this, hopefully.

    • pretty says:

      After Kirsten Stewart’s cheating photos surfaced and she went into hiding for months and for the first time, she came out to the public, journalists NEVER asked her any of the cheating scandal. So i doubt Jennifer’s people would let them do that to her if she’s not comfortable.

  3. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Do not get it.

  4. DavidBowie says:

    King of elevator music…that’s classic. LOL

  5. Lucy2 says:

    I like Jen and have great sympathy for all she and the other victims have probably been going through with the hacking crime.
    But this People confirmation feels like PR. I don’t know if it’s for the movie or to get her some positive publicity, but the timing just seems odd.
    If it’s for real and they’re happy though, good for them.

    • Sabrina says:

      Jen doesn’t need positive publicity as no one is blaming her for the leaks. The person that’s getting the most out of this is Chris. I think it’s far more likely that his PR is giving these stories out than hers.

      • Linn says:

        Nobody is blaming her for the leaks? I must have dreamed all the comments saying how she brought this on herself and hhow stupid she must be do take nudes of herself in the first place.

      • lucy2 says:

        Unfortunately Linn is right, there are MANY people out there who’s response was it was the women’s fault for taking the pictures in the first place.

        But aside from that, I wasn’t saying she needed positive PR because of blame, but simply because all the coverage of her recently has been related to that story, and I could see her team simply wanting a happy headline for her and give the media something else to focus on.
        Maybe it is coming from Chris’ camp though, or neither and simply was a person spotting them and reporting it.

      • Rose says:

        @Linn I see your point, but on the same token I think it’s stupid for anyone to take nudes. Celebrity or not, you can learn how to hack things via the internet now. It’s crazy.

        I feel bad for all the people who’s nudes got leaked recently, but at the same time, what would you risk the possibility of getting hacked? I may not be a celebrity, but I definitely don’t take nudes nor do I intend to ever do so.

      • Emily C. says:

        It’s easy to use binoculars to see into someone else’s house too. Therefore I guess every woman should make sure to cover her body at all times. Because it’s shameful to have a female body because it can be used against you?

        Screw that. Anyone wants to hack me, they’re a criminal. I’m not going to live my life in fear, nor should anyone else. The more sane we get about this, the less we have to fear from anyone seeing us naked. There is nothing shameful about having a female body. The hackers are the ones who did something shameful, not the women, not in the slightest bit.

        Until we start to refuse to live in fear, we are going to be stuck here forever.

      • Bob Loblaw says:

        I think many people were critical of her trusting her nude photos were secure, not that she took them.

  6. Sabrina says:

    While I don’t doubt that this pairing is real especially since it’s being reported by People I don’t quite get why no one has managed to get a photo of them. Surely some fan or someone can manage to get a photo especially as almost everyone has camera phones now?

    If I was a photographer I would be making it my mission to get a photo of the two of them or at least just Jennifer. I have to wonder if her camp perhaps pays photographers for pictures taken of her so that they can’t be sold to tabloids.

  7. Tristan says:

    I would hardly call Coldplay elevator music. They may not reach the heights achieved by Radiohead, but they are still a very good band. Most certainly a zillion times better than most of the rubbish coming out of the US at the moment. Give me Chris Martin any day over a jackass like Kanye West, French Montana et al.

    • Skins says:

      True that

    • serena says:

      +1 well said.

    • Adrien says:

      Yup, they worked with Brian Eno. Can they say the same with Kings of Leon? I’d pick Chris Martin over Jack White. Heck, I’d choose Jack Black’s music over any Jack White’s output.

      • grace says:

        What? Coldplay over The White Stripes? Blasphemy! :)

      • mia girl says:

        You had me… then you lost me!

        I’ve listened to my fair share of Coldplay in the past (circa Yellow/The Scientist) and even saw them live a few years back, so I am no hater. Bored of them perhaps, but not a hater.

        But there ain’t no way, no how they can EVER win over Jack White and his talent.
        Take it back! Take it back! :)

      • maybeiamcrazy says:

        Personally I think Brian Eno ruined Coldplay. Then again I am not much of a U2 fan either. But Chris Martin over Jack White? Come on! :)

    • Allie says:

      Thank you! I don’t get the hate on Coldplay on this thread. You may not like their music, but lets not pretend they’re a one hit wonder.

      While this couple may be extremely random, I don’t get why everyone is still upset about this relationship. I guess I don’t find Jennifer the most amazing person on this planet, and therefore can believe someone like Chris Martin could date her.

      • lucy2 says:

        I said it on a thread a while back – they’re one of the top grossing selling and touring bands out there, so clearly they have plenty of fans.

        I like a lot of their earlier stuff but haven’t paid much attention to the last few albums. No music is for everyone, so I can fully understand not liking them, but the idea that they aren’t successful is just plain wrong.

    • Veronica says:

      Haha, I like Coldplay, but I thought elevator music is pretty accurate. It’s the kind of music I don’t mind listening to when it’s on, but I don’t actively seek out the new records to buy them. It’s pleasant driving music to me.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        “It’s pleasant driving music to me.”

        You just described easy-listening music, or “elevator music” as it is popularly known.

        If I was behind the wheel and Cold Play came on the radio, I’d probably drive off a cliff. But that’s just me…..

    • littlemissnaughty says:

      They’re just so bland to me. No evolution, musically speaking. That’s the only thing I don’t like about them but the reason I’ve never bought even just one of their songs (some were pretty good) is mostly Chris Martin’s voice. I don’t like it, it’s so wispy and blah. But I’ve been listening to some seriously embarrassing stuff lately so …

      ETA: I hate to say it but I get why they would be into each other. As a couple they look weird but individually, I get it. Chris Martin can be charming f*cker in interviews, who knew! And I really adore JLaw.

    • Snazzy says:

      hahahha me too! Love Coldplay! Not even ashamed :)

    • aenflex says:

      Agreed. And in no way do I think Jennifer Lawrence is too good for him.

    • Rice says:

      I loved Viva La Viva and even their earlier songs like Yellow. Don’t hate them at all.

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      Music is subjective, who cares if someone thinks it’s elevator music, if you like it, that’s enough.

  8. Pager90 says:

    Hahaha, Knew it was real.

    JLAW is his new younger funnier, more hang loose Gwen-IT girl, Academy award winning girlfriend.
    He has a type.

  9. Monksolo says:

    I used to like her. After the leak I felt sorry for her… but the actions of her lawyers have had a “chilling” effect on the freedoms most people take for granted when they share photos over the Internet. I plan to boycott anything her sorry ass appears in from now.

    • Abbott says:

      What actions of her lawyers are chilling? Honest question.

    • stellalovejoydiver says:

      she has a right to privacy, her dignity as a person was violated with those leaks, so I don’t really care that people feel restricted in their “freedom” to share pics which have been stolen from her.

    • Cheryl Tunt says:

      Wow this comment annoys me so much. So it’s her fault her photos were hacked and distributed to a crazy degree all over the internet and social media by entitled pricks? Was she just supposed to not take action and ignore it for some imagined greater good of internet freedom? You’re ridiculous. I’m pretty sure no “chilling effect” has resulted from her lawyers actions at all.

    • Veronica says:

      ?? Somebody hacked into her phone and stole her personal property, then disseminated it among the mass public without her consent. Pressing charges or suing is the normal follow up to that. Do you blame stores for arresting shoplifters to?

    • Liz says:

      That’s crazy her personal property was stolen if you then choose to copy and then share stolen data then you should face the consequences.

    • littlemissnaughty says:

      Yes, don’t threaten criminals with prosecution. Because … freedom!

    • Josefa says:

      Oh for f*cks sake. She didn’t tweet the pictures. She didn’t upload them to facebook. She didn’t accidentally send them to TMZ producers. She took them with her phone, her phone was HACKED, and the pictures were STOLEN from her. NOT. HER. F*CKING. FAULT.

      I just fail to see this as a matter of opinion. This was a sex crime point blank.

      • Tapioca says:

        If you’re going to capitalise, at least be accurate. Her phone wasn’t hacked – her photos were stored in the digital equivalent of putting your valuables in a wet paper bag and then throwing it out on your front lawn and a bunch of guys spent months guessing e-mail accounts and passwords to get access.

        It was ridiculously easy, if time-consuming to access them. Think about it – for a celebrity all those “password protection” questions they ask for, like your school, first pet and mother’s maiden name are pretty much all in the public domain.

        Which is not to say that she wasn’t the victim of a particularly nasty crime, obviously…

      • Cheryl Tunt says:

        That analogy of storing your valuables in a wet paper bag is very, very unfair to the women who were hacked. A better one would be storing your valuables in a alarm protected house but unbeknownst to you the particular alarm system you use has a code that can be easily overridden.

        Even then it’s still not a great analogy because at least one of the women said that they had deleted their photos long before they were stolen and that they were unaware the files were being backed up to the cloud. Lot’s and lot’s of Apple users were just as oblivious to that until this hacking scandal. Lot’s and lot’s of people don’t store their valuables on the front lawn.

    • Emily C. says:

      People should feel “chilled” at sharing other people’s naked photos on the internet. As in, they should not do it. It’s utterly despicable.

  10. Adrien says:

    King of Elevator music? Is she dating John Mayer? Oh wait, he’s king of Walmart’s lawn and garden section background music.

  11. serena says:

    Am I the only one who can’t stand her anymore?

  12. Maum says:

    Are we *sure* they are really dating? I need pictures.

  13. smcollins says:

    Maybe I don’t know enough about Chris Martin, but I think he’s adorable. It does seem like an odd pairing, I’d never put these two together, but to each his own. And she admits that she’s a sucker for anything British (hence the British boyfriends). And I don’t doubt that Jennifer’s a breath of fresh of air after all those years spent with Gwyneth. The man’s finally able to let loose and have some fun. Nothing wrong with that. ;)

    • Lauren says:

      I believe Jen and Chris are a couple.
      Goop is an elitist snob, and very controlling in a myriad of ways. She doesn’t seem very bubbly, funny, or even happy..just controlling.
      Jen is young, hilarious, has a healthy-curvy body, and very talented. Jen probably does not talk down to Chris, plus enjoys eating nachos and beer with him.
      Can you imagine living with Colonel Goop? And having to socialize with Jessica Seinfeld? What a nightmare.
      Jen loves British men (I do as well). In my experience- they are witty, funny, intelligent, thoughtful, and incredible in the bedroom. Very addictive. Do not underestimate Chris. He deserves to be happy. And Jen is magnificent. Enough said.

      • Helo says:

        @Lauren: Well put. I may not agree that the relationship is a serious one, but I really agree with what you wrote here.

        P.S. Extra special bonus points for the words “Colonel Goop”….I love it!. LOL!.

      • Cheeseball says:

        I don’t consider JLaw’s body curvy, I think she’s more athletic looking, in my personal opinion. But, then again, the curvy definition has changed so much over the years. She does look healthy.

      • maybeiamcrazy says:

        That is just unfair. I don’t even like Goop but she did not force Chris to marry her. It was his choice.

  14. Helo says:

    We do need photos….I still don’t believe they are a serious couple (in a serious relationship) though I do believe that they may have gone on a few dates. If so, it still doesn’t prove that there is anything really serious going on…just two people who like hanging out together.

  15. Veronica says:

    *siiiiiiiigh* I guess it’s inevitable that this is going to last awhile. I’m still praying that it’s done by the end of the year, else the cognitive dissonance of these two might give me an aneurysm.

  16. Observer says:

    Dating a man who is not yet divorced but separated, how does that work? (not being snarky lol, I genuinely want to know the etiquettes of that).

    • Sabrina says:

      Plenty of people date while in the process of getting a divorce as divorces can take some time to sort out especially if the couple are not in agreement. As long as they’re legally separated I don’t see a problem with it.

      I do have to wonder though who will be the first to file for a divorce as the arrangement seems to so far be working out for them both.

    • Veronica says:

      More common than you think. Most marriages are done long before the separation physically occurs. Divorce can also be a lengthy legal process, particularly when there are children or property/financial dynamics involved, so it’s not really that surprising that people start looking around before it’s fully completed.

      (Financial status is also an issue, honestly. Some people literally just don’t have the money to afford a divorce. My coworker has been living with a man she got involved with post-divorce for more than a year, and she’s not divorced. Neither she or her ex-husband can really afford it, so they just have a general separation agreement. It’ll only be an issue if she wants to remarry.)

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      Terrible idea in my experience but live and learn.

  17. Dani says:

    Why would someone want to be described as acting all goofy? Not cute.

  18. Cinderella says:

    I just want to know where Alexa Chung fits in all this.

  19. jojo says:

    ya know, why is he out of her league? She’s nothing special herself. So she won an oscar. that doesnt mean crap anymore, since Berry won. It has nothing to do with acting, but more to do with who they can market better.

    She is a decent actress, but so are many actresses in hollywood. She’s sorta plain looking, not the drop dead gorgeous hollywood type, but more of a next-door type of thing. But nothing that screams she’s in this elite group, other than being in hollywood, winning an oscar (that doesnt mean crap nowadays), and looks like someone you’d see in the grocery store.

    I do not know him at all either, but to say she’s outta his league, what makes her so special? Other than the sympathy card for the scandal, and the fact that people were sick of hearing about Aniston/Jolie that this is a fresh face to put on the pedestal?

    • Swan says:

      I agree. She is completely boring and massively overhyped. Let them do whatever they want together, I don’t care.

    • Ty says:

      I agree. I think it’s funny that so many people can’t see that her average girl persona is just as strategic as all the other women in the industry that they often call out. I think she took her whole schtick too far. Her plain looks and overhyped acting with a few jokes during her interviews would have been enough, but she’s way too silly all of the time and instead of coming off as down to earth she’s just down right obnoxious and vulgar at times IMO. I don’t think she’s out of his league at all, both of them are weird looking and boring, makes sense to me.

  20. Carrie says:

    Maybe it’s because I genuinely don’t ‘get’ the hype around her, but I don’t understand why she’s so special as to be so out of his league.

    • Jlee says:

      JLaw is clearly something different – a great-looking girl with charisma and an acting range that’s exceptional (can do intense, can do comic – a difficult trick). Yes, she’s talked up left, right and centre and that can be annoying, but she’s obviously Grade A star material unless Hollywood screws her up. And even though I can’t stand his music personally, I can understand the attraction of Martin – British, smart, rich, used to the crazyness, and mature enough not to want to go clubbing every second night when that’s not an option for her anymore. Mind you, it probably won’t last beyond Christmas…

      • Carrie says:

        I can’t comment on her talent since nothing she’s done is really my taste and therefore I can’t comment because I haven’t seen it, but her ‘charisma’ just comes off as annoying to me. The whole normal girl falls at award shows etc thing just feels really fake and try hard.

  21. Emily C. says:

    I hope she’s just going, hey, rock star (sort of), older man, why not for once? And that it’ll be over in a couple months with no hard feelings.

    I’m getting tired of all the “super cute” stuff around her. She’s starting to feel a little bit Taylor Swift to me, and that is not a good thing.

  22. klake4 says:

    Jennifer Lawrence is a manufactured, overexposed, product of the casting couch. Chris Martin married Gwyneth Paltrow on his own… people act like she forced him into it. Ridiculous. I find JL to be even more fake than GP.

    • Jlee says:

      I’m genuinely curious – when you say that JLaw is ‘manufactured’, do you really think that the performances she gave in indie films like Winter’s Bone or Like Crazy before she became famous were careful studio constructions? I’m always slightly at a loss when people confidently claim that she has no talent, or that she owes her career to casting directors drooling over her, when as far as I can see the evidence of raw talent has always been there and is pretty obvious.

  23. CynicalCeleste says:

    Late to the party on this, but has there been any discussion as to whether JLaw was the scoop that Vanity Fair had and never ran? I always suspected their dirt was on Chris and not on Goop directly. Gwynnie used all her power to get the story shut down, they consciously uncoupled, threw the tabs a little alexa chung diversion…and then a few months later, oh hey, looks like chris martin just met jennifer lawrence… scandal averted.

  24. Bob Loblaw says:

    Still no photo? Still not buying it.

  25. Goodnight says:

    I do not like Jennifer Lawrence and never have, but I do feel bad for her having those photos leaked. Yes, it’s stupid to take nudes with your phone when you’re a famous person and hackers are a thing. Yes, it’s not very wise to put anything confidential on a device connected to the internet, but we all do it these days, whether it’s through e-mail or credit card details or private documents.

    People have a reasonable expectation of privacy when it comes to media on their phone, especially if they’re not intentionally uploading it. A lot of people read the ToS for icloud (and even more don’t) but don’t understand the tech. Technically that’s on them, but it doesn’t mean they deserve to have their intimate photos put in an arena where anyone with an internet connection can obtain them.

    That said, it’s nudity and she has a great body. It’s nothing to be ashamed of.

  26. Goodnight says:

    Sorry for the double post, but:

    I am so tired of hearing ‘Jennifer is too good for Chris!’/'Chris isn’t good enough for Jennifer!’.

    Bullshit. Why? Because he’s older and was with Goop and makes shitty music? That’s pretty elitist. There’s nothing out there (that I know of) to suggest Chris is a bad person. He isn’t a racist like Mel Gibson, he doesn’t hurt women like Chris Brown, he doesn’t have a trashy background filled with scandal like Kim Kardashian. So how exactly is he not good enough for her?

    Not to mention it’s pretty condescending to Jennifer, like she’s too stupid to see the obvious fact she’s better than him. Its one thing to say ‘she could do better’ , but ‘she’s too good for him’ crosses the line. I haven’t seen it too much around here but a lot of sites are filled with ‘she’s too good for him’ nastiness.
