Jennifer Lawrence supports Chris Martin backstage at iHeartRadio: cute?

Jennifer Lawrence attended her second Coldplay concert of the week on Friday. These are photos of her backstage to support Chris Martin at the iHeartRadio festival in Las Vegas. JLaw is a major, hardcore Coldplay fan (she knows all the words). She’s been spotted outside a few of their gigs this year. Most of the time, she covers her face when the paps appear. This time, Jennifer didn’t care if she was pictured on the scene. She even smiled for the camera at one point.

Jennifer was definitely at this event for the ex-Mr. Goop. E! Online says JLaw walked right into the band’s dressing room. Taylor Swift entered a few moments later. JLaw hung out with Swifty? Huh. I like to imagine the conversation was filled with cats and farts.

I’ve resigned myself to the “truth” of Martin Lawrence for now. Whether it’s serious or fun, no one can tell. Us Weekly says Chris has “fallen in love.” For him, “it’s the real deal.” The Mail has photos of Chris posing oddly onstage. Something about acting like an acrobat as he played the piano. Is that the Coldplay version of a couch jump?

Beyond JLaw’s taste in music and men, these pictures show that her “street style” is improving. She’s not dressing like a Zoe Kravitz clone anymore. JLaw rocked an Emilio Pucci crop top and pants. Her bod is insane, and I covet that purse.

P.S. Jennifer’s photo hack-nightmare isn’t over yet. More of her pics have leaked with the Kim Kardashian ones that Kaiser is talking about today.

    That purse looks like the Catholic Censer. Is she swinging it around back stage to clear the air from the presence of goopspiritus?

  2. Nicole says:

    This looks like a carefully constructed paparazzi stroll. Hence why she looks so calm and smiling in the photos. Jen never smiles at the paps. And once again the articles written are riddled with inaccurate facts and fanfiction. They are now moving in together and friends are expecting a wedding according to some sources.
    And of course no pictures. Even with the massive amount of cameras around (including the camera guy IN the picture). Surprise surprise. At this point this is some PR and they are either friends or friends with benefits. Have we ever had so many articles about an unconfirmed relationship in a short span of time?

    • Kiddo says:

      Maybe Coldplay sales were down?

      • Nicole says:

        No idea. But Chris certainly looks good for trading up after his divorce right? Even though neither has filed and previously he wanted to work it out.
        And we all know what Jen’s problem is and it’s a big one. Especially going into promo for what is going to be one of the biggest movies of the year.

      • Kiddo says:

        He seems to be sizing up the photo ops at the rear, isn’t that Chris in the background on photo #4?

      • Nicole says:

        He is in the background. Makes you wonder how with all those cameras that’s the first picture of them “together” lol

      • Kiddo says:

        Not to mention that regular journalists and paps don’t routinely get backstage access. There is special permission involved, so this makes you wonder if these are personal photogs hired for the tour.

      • Nicole says:

        Could be. Either way it looked to carefully planned. We all know how much the girl hates paparazzi

      • Dana m says:

        Coldplay sales and UK album sales in general are down. So yes, it smells like a PR romance to me. All so carefully constructed in my opinion. Many obvious clues.

      • Ally8 says:

        @Dana, thanks for the Guardian link! Good read.

      • Liv says:

        Your theory makes more sense than anything else. He gets publicity and doesn’t seem like a fool while divorcing, and Jennifer has something going on that distract people from her nude “scandal”. Poor girl. Must be hard to go on promo and pictures are still leaked.

    • Esmom says:

      ITA. Up until now I thought their relationship was a fabrication but now I think it’s a showmance, purely for business/PR reasons.

      Side note, I love her hair. I wish I could pull off this length/style.

      • Alexis says:

        I agree too. No one sees them together but they are supposedly making out in public places (and in the age of camera phones that is pretty impossible). The only confirmed sightings of them together is at these concerts and they are never spotted together. It’s either a showmance or they are both regular Houdinis

  3. Bess says:

    JLaw is a fool for getting involved with a separated older man with kids.

    • tracking says:

      I tend to agree, but maybe she’s just having a good time. She’s so young–why not?

      • ML says:

        Does a mediocre singer in an easy listening band seem like the kind of guy you just have ‘fun’ with though?

      • ByronicHeroine says:

        Because it starts as a good time/fun/fling/hot sex, then you fall in love/get attached and it’s a complicated situation and it hurts.

      • tracking says:

        I know plenty of twenty-somethings who enjoy sex/flings without getting attached. She seems like an ambitious young woman with a good head on her shoulders. It’s unwise to date someone like Martin only if you’re keen on settling down.

    • ByronicHeroine says:

      Why do you say this of getting involved with a separated older man with kids?

      I’m not disagreeing, actually I would be more inclined to agree. I have thought a lot about this type of situation, as it has touched some of my friends’ lives, and I would genuinely like to hear other women’s insights. Is it always a bad idea? What if someone genuinely falls in love? Are there exceptions?

      Why, in summary, is it generally not a good idea? And why would someone be described as a fool for entering into it?

      • Nicole says:

        I’m always wary of anyone starting a relationship with someone still entangled in one. With kids it’s even worse. They seem to be in two different stages of life

      • Steph says:

        I completely agree with Nicole on top of the glaring fact that Paltrow and Martin aren’t divorced on top of the fact that their houses are right next to each other. You would always be living under the dark cloud of GOOP.

    • epiphany says:

      Completely agree – separated is still married, not divorced. She should run for the hills -or the closest bachelor – until Martin has divorce papers in hand. He has no business dating anyone, but considering how much cheating took place in his marriage maybe openly dating is an improvement?

    • Steph says:

      I so agree a thousand percent,especially when the soon to be ex is Gwenyth Paltrow….can you imagine the games that woman will play with all of Chris’s gal pals?

      • lisa2 says:

        There is nothing wrong with dating when you are separated. Especially if you know the marriage is over.

        I think that He and Gwyneth may have set some ground rules. I don’t think he is going to be seen publicly with her until after the divorce. Or the key the kids in on the fact that Dad and maybe Mom are in other relationships.

        I doubt Jennifer is equipped to deal with the totality of this kind of relationship. I think all the family pics of the “Martins” is a message that he will always be pulled in two directions. It will be interesting to see how this all ends or plays out.

    • Granger says:

      No matter how “together” or “mature” a young woman in her early 20s might be, I’ll never understand why she’d want to date a man with kids. For pete’s sake, having your own kids is a big enough responsibility — I can’t imagine having to deal with somebody else’s.

    • Courtney says:

      Agreed. Have either Paltrow/Martin even filed yet? Sorry, that’s still married in my book.

  4. JKL says:

    Is it wrong that this relationship is making me dislike her? Martin is just such a blah musician I’m like what the hell does she like about this?

    • Kiddo says:

      Rock star-light. Not too controversial, mainstream enough for the tastes of moms everywhere, less fattening, no aftertaste.

      • Chris2 says:

        Ooh, watch it with the ‘rock’ aspersion: I said something similar a while ago and by gawd I was told, unequivocally, that my opinion was WRONG, and furthermore I must never repeat it, because now I had been told.
        The ‘correction’ was as subtle as whacking me on the nut with a cricket bat!

      • Kiddo says:

        So Chris, in other words: “it looked like the bøllix had a flamin’ great slimy liver or other yeuchy organ on the stage in front of him”. I guess someone had a conniption on you? lol

      • Chris2 says:

        HAHAHA!! That’s it exactly. 🙂

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Chris2, you have to watch that Kiddo. She forgets nothing. Ever.

      • Kiddo says:

        @GoodNamesAllTaken, I wish my keys would realize that, sometimes, dammit.

      • Ash says:

        Chris, I loved the way you out that. 🙂

    • Nicole says:

      I think a lot of people are starting to dislike her. This isn’t going to help. He’s still married which rubs people the wrong way. And this relationship real or not is already overexposed (after a month which is crazy).

      • Elle Kaye says:

        Goop is out and dating, so I don’t see a problem. There aren’t any pictures of them together, and they don’t talk about each other. It is the media who is going after the story and making something out of it, not them. Don’t they both deserve some fun without judgment? Especially when Goop stated they were “uncoupled?”

    • Charlie says:

      He seems really nice and funny in interviews. Plus, he’s goodlooking.
      This relationship makes me dislike him, I’ve disliked her for a long time now.

    • InvaderTak says:

      She was starting to lose me with her nasty antics in interviews. Call me a prude, old fashioned, stuck up, judgy, humorless, whatever. I hate discussions about bodily functions. I hate when people brag about what they eat.

    • Wilma says:

      No, thinking about people who know all the words to all the Coldplay songs makes me sad. So disliking her makes sense to me. 😉

    • jammypants says:

      I feel the same way. This pairing is gross.

    • Veronica says:

      It doesn’t make me dislike *her,* just that the relationship and how it’s been treated in the media squicks me out. It’ll really depend on how long it lasts and how they perform once they begin dating openly as opposed to playing it down.

  5. kristina says:

    She always has such terrible street style.

  6. whatsmyname? says:

    She looks cuuuute. I don’t understand the obsession with seeing pics of the two of them, they are obviously dating. And people are acting as if she is dating Chris Brown or something, who cares if he is still married? He and Gwenyth broke up and SHE is also seeing someone but everyone likes to forget that acting as if Jen is dating him will he is still with Paltrow.

    • Allie says:

      Thank you! I don’t get the fuss. Plenty of people date while separated. The age difference isn’t horrible, and I don’t find JLaw a goddess like some people do. There’s no way this is for PR as she does not need it at all.

      Of course Swifty befriended Jennifer. Do you think she would have let an A lister just walk into the arena without pushing a friendship? She loves to collect a wide range of friends to show off.

    • M says:

      Finally, I don’t understand the hate. He seems like a good guy, a great father, there are no bad stories about him, so why not? She could do worse.

      Sad that some of her fans are upset over it. Same fans who wanted her with Bradley Cooper, who is older and has gay rumors. She could have been beard, it would be a good PR. She doesn’t need PR

  7. Hmmm says:

    I seriously question the publicist who had the idea that those two would be a good match. At this point they are more like a big joke than anything else.

  8. Suki2 says:

    Total PR pap walk. PR-palooza.

  9. InvaderTak says:

    Can we call them J-Mart? Please? Michael K rejected it to call them La Wart; can CB pick it up?

    Also, even if this is a PR relationship, I still don’t get the reason for it. Did they need it? Is GOOP really behind it? I personally doubt that one. She certainly wasn’t behind this pap walk. What is going on here?

    • Alex says:

      Everyone needs PR at some point and considering the last few weeks for Jen what better to distract from nude photos then a relationship that makes little sense? Not confirming it means we get stories about this pretty much every day and people forget about the photos and focus on this.

      And this was a total pap walk. I can’t remember Jen ever looking this calm around paps. No one else had cameras following them around backstage either. And her publicist is probably behind it that’s her job.

      • Rice says:

        But didn’t nude pics scandals happen after the pairing? Maybe they just genuinely like each other and are trying it out.

      • sigh((s)) says:

        Yes, but all this started before the naked photos came out. She had no reason to start this “relationship” for PR, unless they maybe knew beforehand that the pics were going to come out? Otherwise I don’t understand the reason for a showmance. She certainly didn’t need it.

      • Alexis says:

        Unless they knew the leak was going to happen. I just can’t wrap my head around the stories that have them making out in public, going to places frequented by paps and not having one fan picture let alone a pap shot together. Yet a source knows all their movements and has them together on days Chris was traveling with the band out of the city. It just doesn’t fit.
        They could be dating casually but there’s a lot of PR going on behind this relationship. It makes it seem more serious then I believe. I mean some reports have them moving in together and planning a wedding. Yet she just got out of a four year relationship where she was never engaged or moved in with her bf.

      • Alex says:

        Her people could have known about the leak. Apparently the leak was being talked about weeks beforehand online. That’s could’ve easily gotten back to her people.

      • Kim1 says:

        I disagree being in a high profile relationship attracts more attention to the nude pic scandal.Also these pics were not taken by paparazzi

      • Alex says:

        It’s a good distraction though. The sheer amount of stories about them tells me that.
        Jen hates being photographed when it’s not for promo period. She never smiles for pictures. And they had paps at the event because there was a press line.

    • Alex says:

      This is not PR. People need to let of this idea just because you don’t like them together. If her people wanted a PR relationship i can guaratee you they would get somebody else. PR is all about looking good not make people sigh over you. Now with all this mess in Jen life i could see her people arranging some pics like this one but the reason they are using its because they are dating for real. I doubt it will last but they are dating. As for media circus since when media need PR to run stories? Aren’t you guys clicking on thise articles? This is why they keep making up crap about them. People are reading and commenting.

      • Steph says:

        tabloids make deals with publicists to run stories all the time. How in the world do you think the kardashians make a living? They feed the story to one source and each subsequent blog or media quotes each other. Boom instant story

        They could be dating sure. But with all the interest in these two you’re telling me not ONE camera got the two of them together in Vegas? Yet she was “seen” sneaking into his dressing room (which the band shared with taylor and they chatted that night according to her mother) but the cameras conveniently were nowhere to be found at that exact moment? The well time pap walks, the lack of any evidence that they are in the same area ever besides concerts, the inconsistent stories and lack of even one fan tweet spotting them together tells me this is fake. Maybe they have a casual relationship but all the “stories” about them seem completely false.

  10. Talie says:

    This poor girl still has videos floating around out there too. That’s the worst of it. I guess she’s made peace with it by now though.

    • Henry says:

      the videos aren’t of nudes. it’s her and nick smiling or her doing yoga. the “pr9n video” were false and made up. it was confirmated on sites and also in the indipendent

  11. Leelip says:

    I’ve have credited JLaw with better taste in men, but maybe Martin is a charmer in private. The whole thing isn’t great for her PR – the relationship looks a little icky. (I’ve no doubt that it’s real.) However, from the trailer, it looks as if she’s going to give another top-class performance in Mockingjay, and that combined with a few sparky talk show appearances will probably remind everyone why she is where she is in the A-list stakes. Oh, and she is looking hotter by the day – not sure about the outfit, but her figure is killing it.

  12. JH says:

    Her hair looks good again. I did not like that pixie/Hilary Clinton look on her at all.

  13. Hissyfit says:

    They are not even spotted together nor have been photographed as a couple yet I’m already sick and tired of this relationship. Lol. Nice hair though.

  14. BlueJay says:

    Well all I can say is that Chris must be furious about being talked about this much in the tabloids/celeb sites. Meanwhile his ex is enjoying whoever she is with privately. Interesting. Gwen has the upper hand as usual.

  15. suziekew says:

    Their relationship calls to mind the beginning of Rob & Kristen’s. “Are they or aren’t they”. “They are PR, showmance,etc”. Only shadowy pics and supposed overheard conversations. The paps will be on their trail now more than ever trying to capture that one photo of them together with PDA. This relationship is guaranteed to be a media frenzy. So sorry for both of them.

  16. Felice says:

    It seems like JLaw has been walking down a rickety path this past year. I used to only hear about her movies and now it’s just her personal life. My sister warned me last year that she would be getting backlash real soon and boy was she right.

    • Leelip says:

      I think JLaw’s PR people aren’t handling things very well at the moment. I presume they’re waiting for the Mockingjay release to put her on the chat shows, when she can turn on the charm – but in the interim, the media snark is just festering away.

    • Gina says:

      Actually media and general pubblic have protect her. Nobodys have made jokes on her in the media. the only persons that have made jokes on her were those posted her pics on obscure sites. There isn’t a backlash quite the opposite

  17. JudyK says:

    Hate her hair, hate the “cropped look” on her. And the shoes do not work with the jeans…she needs plain pumps or ballet flats.

  18. Mingy says:

    i like “magic”…if u don’t, you have no ears, or taste.
    i kid, i kid 😉
    i think martin lawrence has great sex…even though CM has a small peen..jeez, i said i kid !

  19. Veronica says:

    1.) I wish somebody would give her some hair/makeup advisement. The styling of the hair has been an issue for her from the start, and it’s only gotten worse since she had to chop it off. The makeup is slowly improving, but I still have yet to see her in a shade of lipstick that I like. The nudes and pinks are never quite the right color to me.

    2.) I tried to put a finger on why I dislike this couple so much recently, and I decided the PR was a big part of it. I could deal with two people who hit it off despite the the age difference. I wouldn’t like it, but I could deal with it. But this teenage dream, infantilizing teenybopper bullsh-t? Grosses me out. So much. This woman is talented, beautiful, and accomplished all by the age of twenty-four. Do NOT sell me this idea that dating him is a fantasy brought to life after years of Coldplay fandom. That just undermines her so much as an adult woman to me, to portray Chris Martin like he’s some kind of goddamn rock god descending to Earth to make her dreams come true. I wish her PR team would get its sh-t together and put a stop to it because the reactions I’m seeing from a lot of people in my peer group is that this is benefitting him a lot more than it’s doing her.

  20. Blackbetty says:

    I’ve lost so much respect for JLaw being with this guy.

  21. Annie says:

    Are there shortage of men in HW? I mean, Jlaw can get any hot single man n HW and yet she hooked up with a not so good looking old married with two kids singer whose ex is a self-obsessed woman. I liked her with Nicholas Hoult may not be that popular or rich but he is decent and single. I wonder what happened with them. I don’t know what’s the attraction with Chris Martin, if you really look at him he is kinda ugly, but I think Jlaw likes British men or British dry sense of humor.

    • Jess says:

      Too bad he cheated on her. I think pretty easy to read what happened. She was always making love and cute statements about Nick. She did a few very recently. Its clear the girl was in love and suddenly they just break up again and expect us to believe it was mutual? Nick goes to work in Asia and act like life couldn’t be better while single and Jen start almost imediatly this weird relationship with Chris. This screams i got a my heart broken and i am desperate to move on from the guy who dump/cheated on me. There quiet a few ramblings about them and how he was unfaithful. Its his lost.

  22. Cirien says:

    I know this isn’t necessarily the case with Goop and Chris but does anyone feel a twinge for the former partner when you have “Close friends” of any celeb, talking about how their current relationship is the *the real thing*? Like, that’s probably what you thought when they in their previous relationships too dude, there’s no need for that *mild* shade.

    Back to Jen and Chris, I dunno. It really does feel like she’s his midlife crisis , and it’s a jump from Nick Hoult to Chris Martin in age no?

    • Steph says:

      If I thought it was real then yes I would feel bad. But these “sources” sound like BS and the stories are getting crazier by the day.

      But I do feel bad when celebs give interviews that shade their former partner. It must sting a bit

  23. Alexis says:

    Well they’ve been conveniently “spotted” today at the airport. So I guess the paps are either stupid and missed all their dates or they are really pushing the publicity behind this. This whole thing seems so weird

  24. Hally says:

    Nothing to say about this weird relationship, but at least her hair is in an ok place now after looking like Kate gosselin for far too long.

  25. Almond says:

    I think they’re an odd couple. She could date practically anyone; so why GOOP’s leftovers? But Chris Martin seems like a great guy and JLaw’s probably hooked on the Brit accent.
