People: Jennifer Lawrence hasn’t met Chris Martin’s kids, says ‘source’

Jennifer Lawrence

On Sunday, we talked about Jennifer Lawrence’s newest batch of Miss Dior ads. I will stan for JLaw until the end of time, but these ads go nowhere. They feature an airbrushed and dead-eyed JLaw. She’s so vibrant in real life that I’m convinced the dead eyes are added in post-production. Dior has released a new behind the scenes video. In doing so, they’ve further broken my heart (Fredo). Jennifer says, “A powerful woman is someone who exudes confidence and can be tough but fair and kind. And also knows how to get what she wants.” All of this is true, but this video doesn’t translate to the words:

I expected the video to be more dynamic than the stills. Jennifer speaks of the “effortless” and “timeless” quality of the adverts. Well … mannequins are timeless in the sense that they never change. So she’s not wrong. She’s also reading a script. Dior, please do better next time.

There are new photos of JLaw (capped in a beanie) shopping in Malibu. You can see them here. Even in those exclusive photos, JLaw is alone. That is to say, she’s not shopping with her new boyfriend, John Mayer Chris Martin. People has a handy explanation for why Jennifer was shopping all by her lonesome. Why? Because Chris puts family first:

Since splitting from Gwyneth Paltrow in March, Chris Martin has continued putting family first.

But with Jennifer Lawrence now in his life, the Coldplay frontman has made fitting in quality time with his new love interest look as easy as his conscious uncoupling from Paltrow, 41.

“Jen has made a few visits to his Malibu house,” says a source. “Chris seems very respectful of Gwyneth and feels more comfortable spending time with Jen away from his family.”

Lawrence, 24, and Martin, 37, also stepped out for a romantic date night at Beverly Hills eatery La Dolce Vita on Sept. 8, where an onlooker says the new couple “were super cute together and laughed a lot.”

On weekends, though, the singer has been all about his kids Apple, 10, and Moses, 8.

“Gwyneth and Chris take the kids for brunch or dinner together every weekend,” says the source. “He and Gwyneth still share responsibilities when it comes to their two kids.”

At the Hungry Cat restaurant in Santa Monica on Sept. 13, “they were very friendly to each other,” an onlooker tells People about the pair, who did not wear their wedding rings. “They looked like a happy family.”

Someone wants us to know that Jennifer may have Chris for dates at the Chateau, but she hasn’t met Chris and Gwyneth’s children. No danger of Doritos-dust contamination just yet. Thank you, mysterious Goop source.

Here are some photos of Chris landing at LAX last week. I never noticed his heart-shaped tattoo until now. Weird.

    JLaw needs to lose Dior. The ads are awful and the clothes worse.

    • don't kill me i'm french says:


    • TX says:

      +1. She is so lovely and has a killer bod. It shouldn’t be so difficult to make her look good!

    • Hally says:

      I say Dior needs to lose both Jennifer and Raf Simons. Jennifer would have been a perfect fit for Calvin Klein or even Ralph Lauren, but she makes no sense for Dior. And I really don’t think Dior ever looks good on her. They both can do better.

  2. original kay says:

    good. she shouldn’t be meeting his kids at this point anyway.

    I am not a fan of goop or chris, but I do like how they are handling this divorce.

    • aims says:

      I agree. People should be more discreet and use a little common sense when it comes to this sort of thing. Kids don’t need to be confused.

    • Size Does Matter says:

      I agree that it would be pretty early to be meeting the kids, and, while it does seem like GP and Chris are doing a good job, I hope they aren’t accidentally misleading the kids that they might get back together. That happened to a friend of mine. Her husband continued to vacation and have frequent family meals with his ex and their kids. The kids really didn’t handle him dating and marrying my friend well.

    • L says:

      Exactly, they’ve been dating for a few weeks. Meeting the kids this early in a relationship (esp when Martin isn’t technically divorced yet) would be a bad idea. For all his faults, this is good parenting on Martin’s part.

    • mom2two says:

      I think this is a good move as well. Wait until you think it’s going to be a serious, long term thing and then meet the kids. I agree with original kay, I’m not a big fan of Gwyneth and Chris but they are handling their divorce well and respectfully. More people should take a cue from them.

  3. Dingo says:

    It’s so strange that we have seen him two or is it three times (in both Hamptons and LA) in the last 1,5 month with Gwen and the family, but still there is no pics of Jlaw and him.

    • Mixtape says:

      It’s not so strange–Goop likes to be papped; JLaw does not. I actually have to give credit to JLaw there–the pics you speak of are part of Goop’s ongoing effort to make sure we all know she and Chris are still the bestest of friends and co-parents. It’s good for all involved that JLaw doesn’t feel any need to match that.

      • FLORC says:

        Exactly. No need to have the world know your business. No need for random people on twitter or readers of rags to add their 2 cents and give you validation. That’s all people who call the paps want. And Gwyneth is a repeat offender.

  4. Kristin says:

    I don’t think they’re dating. Not one single photo.

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      I also don’t believe it just yet, although Chris Martin always was a master at not showing up in paparazzi photos, and Jennifer Lawrence doesn’t get papped too often either.

      So it’s possible, but like you, I still doubt they’re dating.

  5. Luciana says:

    If Eva Mendez could hide her pregnancy, these two may hide their romance as well. The weird thing is they leak all these stories but there’s no graphic evidence that they are indeed dating. Anyway, it’s good gossip!

    • McCall says:

      possibly but not exactly the same. Eva seems to have stayed away from celeb friendly places. These two according to ‘sources’ go to hollywood hot spots and still don’t get pics from the paps. That part doesn’t fit for me so idk.

      • Luciana says:

        Exactly. So fishy.

      • FLORC says:

        Right. Because if they aren’t seen they aren’t existing. I can’t see either of them right now. There’s no proof without photos they’re existing currently.

        And no way could they actually value their privacy. Very fishy.

      • Alex says:

        except if you value your privacy you don’t go to place full of paps which is where they’ve supposedly been. The two restaurants they were supposedly at are notorious paparazzi breeding grounds. Yet they couldn’t get a picture of the most talked about “relationship” of the last month. And they have been papped recently…Just separately which is why people are calling BS. And the dates they are together don’t line up as in how JLaw was with CM in LA when he was at a fan event in a different city.

      • Bob Loblaw says:

        They “value their privacy” so no one gets photos but the stories of them “dating” some how leak from their privacy bubble? It is fishy and I call BS on them “dating” at all.

    • julianne says:

      So true. It kind of makes you wonder who those sources are, right? Neither Jen never had a history of feeding the tabloids. Chris doesn’t as well at least until recently with Goop but i am guessing Goop is the one behind all those famiky photis every weekend. She needs to us kniw how well her family is. So could be Goop the source or some poker face friend of Chris? Mystery.

  6. Dani says:

    I feel like if they weren’t dating, her PR team would have handled this mess already. Either admit it or deny it. I don’t get this whole playing coy thing. No ones saying do a playboy nude shoot together but going to such lengths to hide is a bit strange, imo.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      Eh, true or not–I don’t see why you would have to respond to every single rumor about yourself. If it was me, I wouldn’t confirm or deny anything (not with a press release anyway).

      And to me, playing coy is when you deliberately bring up rumors/allow the question to be asked, and then give a non-answer or demur to answer. Silence isn’t being coy. Paparazzi pics, and then refusing to confirm/deny (especially when you’ve been open before) is being coy.

      Who know? Maybe they’re just booty call and like to go out to good restaurants with each other.

    • Pager90 says:

      I think if they weren’t dating it would have been denied by now.

      • Alex says:

        Her people never comment on her personal life. They did the same thing with the Bradley Cooper rumors and the Liam Hemsworth rumors. Which ironically these sources say that CM and JLaw started dating after the Coldplay concert in June yet when the photos came out “sources” were saying that Liam was her rebound hookup because they were there together with Josh Hutcherson. Funny how the story changed conveniently once these rumors started. Either way none of the dates line up so far and not one single pap photo yet a fan snuck a photo of Jen with a friend at Charteau Marmont. It just doesn’t add up.
        Either way the proof will have to come soon because these stories sound more and more ridiculous and they get released.

      • Gina says:

        Exactly. I know her team doesn’t need to deny every rumour about her. They never did but on those cases we always hear from close friend or siurce how everything is made up, they are just friends and blabla. In this case they are radio silent because it true.

  7. kri says:

    What the hell happened to Dior? It’s awful. I keep expecting Mugatu to jump out and shriek “Fromage, les dumbasses!” or something. They suck.

  8. Dorothy#1 says:

    It’s way to early for her to meet his kids!

  9. PunkyMomma says:

    @Bedhead – ” broken my heart (Fredo). “ Bahaha!

  10. Veronica says:

    That’s actually…normal. You don’t introduce kids to a new partner until you know it’s going somewhere. Which means I hope she never has to meet them.

  11. Jules says:

    I still don’t believe Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin are dating…or, at least that they are seriously seeing each other. A few dates?…maybe, not a big deal really but seriously seeing each other?. Nope.

    I love the photos of Lawrence out
    about in Malibu. The t-shirt she is wearing has a great quote from Matilda. I think she looks adorable.

  12. Pager90 says:

    It sounds quite normal. There is no need for her to meet his kids at this point.
    They may just be hanging out for a few months then go their own way, so no need to get involved with the chillin, at this point.

    I think the problem with the Dior Ads is the stylist and makeup artists are trying to modelize her or do the same makeup, hollow look they do with models and it just does not work on a lady like JLAW. They should have given JLAW vibrancy in her outfits for the shoot and let JLAW be JLAW, her smiling, gregarious self in photos. Also the clothes don’t work on her body, they just look like a shapeless tent on her. Why are they covering her with unflattering clothes? I think something else from the line perhaps more fitting would have worked better on her.
    They took away her vibrancy in the ads. IMO

    • jinni says:

      If jlaw was smiling all over these ads she would go from looking bored to looking goofy. Her smile isn’t the alluring type, but the “aw shucks” type of smile that would look way out of place here. The girl plain just doesn’t fit this brand and there is nothing she or they can do to change that.

      • Pager90 says:

        Oh ok, I keep seeing the photo of her looking serious or that’s the one the press keeps focusing on.
        I just don’t find the styling of the clothes attractive on her body.
        The ads don’t bring out the best of her.

    • FLORC says:

      No point in meeting the kids at all for now. They’re both busy people and curretnly in that fun part of a new relationship that doesn’t really involved clothes. Once that passes and they’re still together is when kids get involved.

      It’s odd. Chris has this story out. And Goop has her story of what she likes in bed with her jumpoff. I tend to favor Martin as the better parent and more descreet person.

  13. Talie says:

    Jen better be careful, if she is ever around Gwyneth — I’m sure a pap will mysteriously get some clear photos.

  14. zan says:

    She has a beautiful smile, in this video, woaw

  15. Sandy123 says:

    Safe needs to lose the fake tan. Then maybe the kids will approach her eventually.

  16. That Girl says:

    He had the heart tattoo put over his ‘G’ tattoo a couple years ago. But then he had the ‘G’ put on his other arm.

  17. CK says:

    Am I the only one that finds these weekly joint dinners a bit odd? I’m glad that Chris and Goop have a cordial(?) relationship for the sake of their kids, but that dinner thing is just strange to me. I also seen even weirder incarnations of this. My uncle and his ex-wife (and her new husband) stayed in the same house/neighborhood until he(and the new husband) died. Still would you even want to meet their kids/get serious with someone who is consistently spending time with their ex? Also, at what point does this become confusing to their kids? I mean it probably blunts the blow of having your parents separate in the beginning, but at some point it just kindles the desire (that probably will never be fulfilled) that they will get back together and things would be as they used to be.

  18. TOPgirl says:

    She should never meet his kids cause it’s NOT going to last. Once the sex is over, it’s over.

  19. Micki says:

    It will be hard for the Kids if they get a new gf “presented” to them every couple of months. It’s OK as it is.

  20. JessSaysNo says:

    I get the strong impression that Chris brought up divorce with Gwyneth and in order to now sound desperate, agreed to a half-divorce. Still keeping him under her thumb with the bizarre joint dinners and leaking stories about how not-serious JLaw and Chris are. I think Gwyneth is the type to never truly let go of her childrens father, she may move on romantically but she will always remain a strong force in his life. I’ve met women like this in real life and I do not envy being the first girl Chris is involved with. Gwyneth is seriously a B and I think the “conscious uncoupling” thing was all about her still remaining “cool” with Chris and avoiding being cut out of his life. She is very manipulative.

  21. shenasty says:

    no, she just has dead eyes period. Her eyes are ALWAYS dead.

  22. Tiffany says:

    When I see these two dry humping on a pile of hamburgers I will believe that they are dating. Until then, no.

  23. St says:

    Oh God – are they still dating? I refuse to accept them as couple. He is too old for her. Can’t wait till they will break up and she would return to Nicholas Hoult. When will next X Men start shooting?

    • Alexa says:

      They start the next xmen in april but i seriously doubt they will be back together again. They were together for a long time and had a sudden break up. Now Jen moved on pretty fast to Chris which indicates their break up wasnt so friendly like the first one and how the report made it out to be. I loved Jen and Nick but i guess they are just one of those young first love who doesn’t last.
      As for Jen and Chris i hope Jen wakes up. She is getting herself into a giant mess and doesnt matter how awesome Chris its not worth it. There are tons of single guys on her feet.

    • Mrs Sin says:

      They won’t be getting back together. Nick cheated. Jen got enough of him. She deserves better. Not sure Chris is but as long he isn’t a cheater and Jen is happy.

  24. Jules says:

    I don’t understand this couple at all. Jen always made so much effort to stay away from tabloids and here she is diving into this madness for what? They are dating for 3 months and since day one their relationship is in the press. We got daily updates of what they do or feel and isnt going to stop. Will only get worse. She needs to run away fast before Goop make her regret in the worst possible way.

  25. amy says:

    In the last 3 years Jen was able to get everything people dream of having in the industry and she did beautifully with her talent and goofy personality but on the last 3 months all we hear is about her personal life she fought so hard to keep private. Nude scandal, break up and now this romance. She is basically throwing everything away and becoming a tabloid folder. The nude leaks isnt her fault but seriously what she thinks will come out from this relationship? And where are all her people, family and friends to advise her? For her sake she should think better about this mess.

  26. Sun says:

    God, i heard more abiut her life on the last month than during her whole career. I hooe Chris D is worth it the trouble. lol
