Are Jennifer Lawrence & Chris Martin going on a couple’s retreat with Goop?

Jennifer Lawrence

Here are some photos of Jennifer Lawrence in a backseat with Bono outside the Chateau Marmont a few weeks ago. Don’t worry, Chris Martin is there too. He’s conveniently “hiding” behind the driver.

JLaw and the king of elevator music are the subject of a new story that may or may not be true. The source can be sketchy, but they sometimes get inside scoops. Radar says JLaw and her boyfriend of 10 months might be going on a couple’s retreat with Gwyneth Paltrow and the kids. The idea behind this story is that Goop is so good at being divorced that she wants to officially welcome JLaw to the family. She also wants her lovah, Brad Falchuk, to bond with Apple and Moses. This tale makes Goop look like a selfless person for inviting JLaw on a family vacation. Never trust a smiling Goop. She’d humblebrag all over the vacay, and Falchuk would make sure Goop looks loved up too:

Gwyneth Paltrow has taken a somewhat unconventional approach to breakups and co-parenting. She has invited her current boyfriend, her ex-husband, and his girlfriend on an intimate couples’ retreat — and the kids are coming too!

Paltrow, who is currently dating Brad Falchuk, has two children, Apple and Moses, with her ex-husband Chris Martin. Chris Martin is currently dating actress Jennifer Lawrence, and now the whole gang is going to spend a totally non-awkward week together in paradise! “Gwyneth recognizes it’s time for Jen to meet the whole family, and she wants Chris to be there for Brad’s first proper bonding experience with the children,” an insider told exclusively. “The plan is to spend a week together in Hawaii, as soon as all their schedules permit, but definitely before the end of summer.”

Not everyone is as excited as Paltrow to make continuous eye contact with their significant other’s ex. “Poor Jen is dreading it,” the source revealed. But despite letting the kids eat forbidden french fries after his split with Goopy Gwyn, the source insists that he is still willing to do things Paltrow’s way. “Chris is still spellbound by Gwyneth and her rules, so he’s insisting on it.”

This story could actually happen if Goop and Chris have an agreement about when to introduce third parties to the kids. If JLaw and Brad come along for the same event, then both intros could be take care of in one swoop. I can’t even imagine how uncomfortable Jennifer would be at a Goop retreat. No Doritos, no farts, and no fun at all. This vacation could even be counterproductive. JLaw could grow so irritated with Goop’s passive aggression that she could dump Chris. Then she could get back together with Nicholas Hoult! I hope this story is true.

    What an amazing thought… what I would give to be a fly on the wall on such a happy circumstance…

  2. Katie says:

    I can’t even wrap my head around how stupid this whole “enlightened” deal is

    • beautifulDay says:

      It’s the pseudo enlightened ex wives that will eat your raw flesh as an appetizer. Run J Law run.

  3. Cate says:

    Yeah because your kids really need to be subject to all this awkward tension… said no one ever

    • TracySmiles says:

      Exactly! Control freakery passing off as the ‘best interests of the children’.

    • *North*Star* says:

      Isn’t that assuming it’s tense at all???

      I have a few friends that divorced and were totally amicable throughout the whole process. It’s not unheard of. Although it is rare.

      • ImFlying says:

        I agree. What’s the big deal? I am not a ‘fan’, nor “overwhelmed by her accomplishments”, but I could easily do the same if I had their kind of money. They probably have rented neighboring houses, where the kids can easily go back and forth or something. Or beach penthouses…whatever.
        By the time I got divorced, I was no longer mad, I was over it. When that happens, it is easy to maintain common decency and respect for a former spouse.

      • Mary-Alice says:

        I don’t see the big deal either. When I lived in Sweden I saw so many mixed families regularly on a picnic at the park or going to the countryside. Where I come from it’s not anything special as well. I guess it’s a cultural thing as much as it’s personal. But it’s cool.

    • lowercaselois says:

      If it is true. It is more that Goop wants to keep her eye on her ex and JLaw. She hasn’t finished uncoupling.

  4. RocketMerry says:

    What an amazing thought… what I would give to be a fly on the wall in this happy circumstance…

    “So, Jennifer, my lovely consciously uncoupled husband tells me you’re some sort of an actress….?”

  5. Kiddo says:

    What kind of hell are you experiencing in life, when a ‘retreat’ from your circumstances involves being locked away with GOOP, who is the BF’s ex-wife?

    • Div says:

      While I think this story is BS, you know that Goop is going to want to be all up in Jen’s business and get to know “her” since she and Chris have been together for a while now.

      • Nina says:

        I think that she wants a piece of Jlaw. Jlaw is the IT girl, she is very respected in the industry ($20M for a movie), public and media are obsessed with her. Maybe Goop could try to become her friend to improve her image

      • Kiddo says:

        I think Jen should start a lifestyle blog.

      • Kathia says:

        I don’t think so. Jlaw has a real job: acting. A lifestyle blog is for lessers

      • Helo says:

        @Nina: Agreed. Absolutely spot on.

      • Liberty says:

        Kiddo!! That’s it. All of Gw’s passive aggressive creeping around her ex and JLaw will go on and on as long as her chilly smug hairflippery does. And Chris may be the corralled rooster forever, either helplessly bound by her crisp faux-WASP rules for family life with ex husbands, or just too darned lazy and uninventive to escape the grip of the thoughtful natural bleached sea branch known as Goop.

        So —- we all should totally combine forces and start a JLaw lifestyle blog called “Loop — A Yearly Lifestyle Blog Composed In the Rare Moments I Am Not Filming a Major Motion Picture or Posing for a Major Real Fashion Brand Designed By People Unacquainted with The Style Musings of Jessica Seinfeld.”


      • Kiddo says:

        Liberty, I like where you’re going, but no mention of farts? “Wherever you may be, let your wind fly free”, or “If I’m on a retreat with Goop and I have to poop, don’t despair, I’m blowin’ some air”

      • Liberty says:

        Kiddo, I love it.

        And, I see a line of inspirational eating tops with your phrases.

        And, perhaps the sound of soft, meaningful farts on auto play? Or are you thinking more like WIND button then a drop down choice of Oscar Farts, On Set Beans, Photo Shoot Deadlies?

    • Size Does Matter says:

      Jen could offer to get Gwyneth a part in her next movie – as Jen’s mom. Straight out of First Wives’ Club. And then Gwyn strangles Jen in her sleep.

  6. Div says:

    Come on….Radar is extremely sketch, to the point that they make Star magazine look like The New Yorker. The only stories they ever seem to break are rehab stories like TMZ, and my assumption is that they pay people off to break HIPAA.

    That said, she’s been with Chris for like a year now. I don’t think he’s her booty call…for some reason I think they are serious. God knows why she wants him and all his baggage, but she’s clearly into him since they’ve been together for a while now despite the fact that she could get nearly any guy. I mean it’s good that he’s on good terms with GOOP, but the fact that he holidays with her and goes to dinner with her on a regular basis is bizarre. It’s only time until we get a happy family dinner photo with her, Goop, Chris, and Goop’s bf although I doubt it will ever be a vacation type of thing. Run Jen, Run lol.

    • Gill B says:

      I’d normally agree with you on the blandness front, because anything involving Chris Martin will usually be the very definition of bland. However, while I’m probably in a small minority, I think Martin Lawrence are turning out to be unexpectedly interesting. They have managed to operate under the radar, and both parties are obviously getting something good out of it.

  8. Orson says:

    Radar Online LOL The kingdom of BS

  9. Miss M says:

    As a former Goop apologist (and if this is true), i say: girl, run! If you are this dickmatized, you need a rehab!

  10. Mara says:

    Jlaw has a strong personality and certainly will never be subjected to Goop. Jen has more prestige, fame, respect this probably nervous Goop. Chris at the end is with a girl much more famous, loved and respected than Goop while Goop has…. Falchuck? LOL

  11. Catelina says:

    This would be hilarious if it were true. Goop and Chris are so odd. In fact, I almost feel like they should just get back together because nobody else should have to deal with the weirdness

  12. Me too says:

    Unless you are engaged, I don’t feel that children should meet your new lover. It can be damaging to expose your children to a revolving door of potential mates. As a parent, I am appalled by how quickly some introduce their boyfriend/girlfriend.

    • StormsMama says:

      But have YOU dated someone with kids?
      I have and there is no way I would’ve waited to be engaged to meet the people who potentially could make or break our relationship.
      We are still together all these years later and while I’ve often wondered What if this or What if that I certainly have never thought What if I waited to meet the kids til we got engaged?
      There’s a happy medium unique to each family / each single parent with kids

      • Esmom says:

        I haven’t been in that situation but what you say makes a lot of sense. I think this story is BS. Why go on a huge vacation together when a simple dinner or something is more than adequate to start to get to know someone.

      • FLORC says:

        Our BS meters pinging all over the place on this aside…
        Is anything not a justification for a Goop newsletter topic? This could be possible.
        Like the uncoupling. That was the Goop version of the seperation. Long before that they likely made peace with their seperation.
        And this could be the Goop version of how the kids were introduced to the new partners…?

    • FLORC says:

      Engagement isn’t a guarantee. If they’re committed and will be in your life enough to justify an interaction it’s a good idea. Kids pick up on a lot. And if you’re spending a lot of time with someone it carries over to them. If Chris plans on continuing there should be an introduction. Without question and a need for titles that can all be undone.

    • Sparkly says:

      I very much disagree! As a child of divorce, it would have been SO damaging to be left out of the loop until an engagement was a done deal. “Surprise, meet your new step-parent! You’d better like them, because it’s extremely serious.”

      As parents, it’s our job to model healthy relationships. Sometimes divorce is healthiest for all involved. Parents are still real people with emotional and sexual needs. I’d say it’s more damaging for all involved to deny that. No, of course parents should not be bringing home a different man or woman for overnights every week, but you don’t have to hide your healing and dating process from your kids. Just consider and include them in the vetting/decision making process if it’s someone you really want to start spending a lot of quality time with.

      • Mary-Alice says:

        This! It also helps bringing up people who are not afraid of emotional change and will not clinge or hide.

    • Veronica says:

      I think a person should wait until it’s serious to introduce a partner to kids but certainly before an engagement. Before you make that kind of commitment, your partner has to be able to connect emotionally with your kids and vice versa. Martin Lawrence has been going on for roughly a year now, so it’s definitely past the “fling” stage of a relationship.

  13. Freddie says:

    You read the aricle of Hollywood Reporter on skin and prim? They said tha Goop is a skin. The Skins are the stars who pose and expose (parts of) themselves hyping sex and body image at premieres, events and awards shows. They said that only Streep, Angie and JLaw are neither Skins nor Prims. They belong to their own exalted exclusive group. Jlaw is is miles ahead of Goop in the industry.

    • FLORC says:

      That list mislables and excludes a lot. It’s a cute read.

    • Jules says:

      @FREDDIE: I read that!…and totally agree with you/the article..

    • Veronica says:

      The article seems to skim over the fact that most of the “skins” are older women who have been dumped by the industry because they aged past the Hollywood prime and are utilizing their former fame for business purposes. While I do think Lawrence is fairly talented, she’s still in the sweet spot age-wise for female movie stars. Give her about 10-15 years and the narrative might change significantly.

  14. Mila says:

    i dont believe that story but generally i am sure Goop wants to be seen to be totally cool with Jen in public while she hates her in private. Goop had the most friendly divorce of time y’all and she is going to show you how cool she is with her ex husband being with a younger, more popular, more succesful and cooler girlfriend.

  15. jen2 says:

    Isn’t Radar just the National enquirer’s online version? Therefore, take this and most of what they print with a grain of salt the size of the Bonneville Salt Flats or a dried up ocean. Anyway, no one is this enlightened. What is described is just nuts.

  16. Mispronounced Name Dropper says:

    These people need to stop watching Vince Vaughn movies.

  17. capepopsie says:

    Happily I don´t have to be there
    because I can already feel the
    awkwardness. Poor kids. .

  18. Palar says:

    How have these two not broken up yet?

    • JENNA says:

      LOL. I was going to write the same thing.

    • Hawkeye says:

      Does Jennifer Lawrence not have any friends around her who can put this into perspective for her? Also, LaineyGossip has a post today about J-Law’s body guard, who is a mighty fine looking man. There must be something really special about Chris Martin.

      • Liv says:

        That’s why I start to believe again that the “relationship” with Martin ist just for PR. Look at him, he’s pretty hot and carries her dog around…he’s either gay or she’s secretly with him.

  19. vauvert says:

    You know, I dislike Goop intensely but if she and Chris and their partners did this I would actually have a lot of respect for them. It they pulled it off that would send a good message to the kids. What the rest of us think, who cares… They make their kids a priority unlike so many celebs, kudos to all of them. And honestly talking about eating rules is nonsense, it is not like they would be at Goop’s house, most likely a luxury resort, so JLaw can eat whatever she wants…

  20. Tracy says:

    Goopy is alllllll about controlling everything and everyone around her. Jen, if you somehow get sucked into this pussy-whipped mess, promise us you’ll slouch around in cut off jean shorts and a braless tank, plus cracked flip flops, the entire vacation. Order fries and a milkshake at every meal. Teach the kids how to make fart noises with your arm pit, and how to burp the alphabet. Please, please, please. Two can play this nonsense.

  21. serena says:

    JLaw annoys me to no end (how long can you go in life with just farts and doritos?), so I hope she’d leave Nicholas Hoult alone. He is too good for her.

    • Gill B says:

      There’s way, way more to J-Law than farts and Doritos – no one gets where she is now (at 24), coming from a non-Hollywood, non-megabucks background, without being smart, focused and talented. Just read her early interviews, from the Winter’s Bone days, before journalists and her PR team started playing up the ‘she’s so relatable’ angle: she comes across very differently.

      • Jules says:

        @Gill B.: “without being smart, focused or talented”…are you kidding?. (LOL!).

      • Sam says:

        I agree it seems like people wanna see her as an airhead because she is always silly and joking in interviews but clearly she is more than what she chose to let people see when she is promoting movies. I think she is very smart and career driven.

      • Mary-Alice says:

        Really? She is a Weinstein girl. Enough said. Yucky.

      • Sam says:

        @Mary-alice yuck at your comment tbh its one thing if you don’t like her but its another to dismiss her work and say weinstein is the reason for her success she only had one movie produced by weinstein all of her other noms and franchises had nothing to do with him.

    • Jules says:

      @Serena: Sure about that?. Lots of rumors about Hoult and his treatment of women especially how treated Jennifer Lawrence. In short: not terribly nice to the women in his life.

      • FLORC says:

        Supported by what? Other rumor mill sites? It’s no secret JLaw and Hoult had blow out fights. Witnesses to those and the odd snapped shot show JLaw expressive and aggressive while Hoult shrugged and more passive.
        Though i’m a fan more of her than him. And attacking 1 to praise the other seems unfair.

      • Gina says:

        She and Hoult broke up because she was too a big star, too huge and he didn’t know how handle that. When a woman is more successful, the man usually has problem with that. It’s sad but it’s true

      • Helo says:

        @Flor C: Well, I’ve never read about “witnesses to their huge blowouts” or saw snapshots of the two having an argument but yeah, lots of rumors about Hoult cheating on Lawrence, his team calling the paps when they were out together with his knowledge (and without hers) abandoning her when the shit hit the fan last August, etc.,…

        Hoult was the one who admitted that he was the one who was uptight and Lawrence was the more laid back of the two as well. I also believe that he felt jealous of her success and critical acclaim.

  22. Sam says:

    I’m impressed with how long they have been together now and I honestly believe its more than just a fun thing, otherwise it would’ve ended a long time ago and they wouldn’t be traveling to see each other when they can. obviously this story is bs but its funny to imagine their interactions lol

  23. Coconut says:

    “Intimate couples retreat”…with children?? That doesn’t make any sense. Oxymoron.

    • Liberty says:

      See, you need to order the Goop Handbook for Living.

      Okay, I love the idea that Goop hasn’t yet really thought out the full possibilities of a scenario in which she tries to mean girl someone who starred in the Hunger Games and grew up in Kentucky.

      “Look at me in my one-of-a-kind silver mini beach skirt ironed by the Dalai Lama to accentuate my stripper butt!! Also, I threw your bracelet into the ocean and told Chris you don’t cook!”

      “NIce! See that beach bonfire? Your shoes, laptop and phone. Also, your mother is in the back of a van headed to a mountain camp in Tennessee. Now, let me see you eat this bag of Fritos.”

  24. Jbap says:

    This would be the greatest reality TV show ever…

  25. kri says:

    I hope they film this so that us poors’n’regs can experience what a summit of the gods would be like. If I ever see GOOP, I am going to force feed her funnel cake. From a state fair. Not the artisanal kind. I think JLaw will hold her down.

  26. Mary says:

    I mean, to each their own, but I really don’t get why Jen wants to spend the prime of her youth going to retreats with her boyfriends ex-wife and children. And I really can’t see her as a responsible, grown up step-parent (judging by her public persona, maybe she’s a completely different person who wants nothing more than play happy family in real life)

  27. Cindy says:

    What a bizarre situation to force upon your kids. Not uncomfortable at all! (sarcasm)

  28. Heartsease says:

    Run JLaw, run!

  29. WallFlowe says:

    I don’t see why everyone hates Gwyneth as much as they do. What’s funny is that I saw a story that said that JLaw broke up with Martin this year because she couldn’t deal with Gwynneth’s constant referencing of her in public and demanding to meet her. The source claimed that Gwyneth wanted to meet JLaw so that she can get to know the person her kids are going to be around. I heard this source not too long ago. It was before the Christmas break. If it is true that Gwyneth wants to get to know the kind of person JLaw is for the kids’ sake then I say “that’s smart on her part.” Who wants their kids to be around someone they don’t know. And Gwynneth is being fair about it. She’s bringing along her man, so that Martin can get a feel for him. There’s no reason for JLaw to run unless she has something to hide.

  30. Dr.Funkenstein says:

    This stuff just amazes me. I’ve been married 32 years. You know why? Because I LOVE MY WIFE and I LOVE SPENDING TIME WITH HER. We like being together. We want to spend our time together. We would NOT want to spend time with another couple on a “couples retreat”. LOL Maybe it’s just me. But you know, if somebody is your best friend, you like being with them. Never seen the need to involve other folks.

    • Nayru says:

      So you and your wife don’t have mutual friend that you spend time with who might also be in a relationship?

    • Mary-Alice says:

      Eh… for 32 years you never went on vacation with other couples? That wouldn’t work for me, ever.

  31. Nikki L. says:

    “She has invited her current boyfriend, her ex-husband, and his girlfriend on an intimate couples’ retreat — and the kids are coming too!”

    No. Just NO. Being open minded is good, but having zero boundaries can be just as harmful. This sounds like a rumor, but if it’s true, it’s ridiculous.

  32. Dante says:

    I’m pretty sure this is the script for the next Jennifer Aniston / Adam Sandler vehicle. Or did they already do this one? Anyways, Jennifer Lawrence needs an intervention. You don’t have to live like this.

  33. Veronica says:

    Nicholas Hoult? Girl plz. We don’t need to revisit the past. She can dump the Coldplay and kick it with that fine ass bodyguard she’s been hauling around lately. If she doesn’t want him, she is more than welcome to release him to the rest of us.
