Star: Jennifer Lawrence ‘feels hopeless’ after being single for 7 months


Jennifer Lawrence’s Vogue interview last November was a really great read – J-Law has mastered the art of giving punchy, funny and controversial soundbytes, and she was particularly confessional about her non-existent love life. Jennifer has been officially single since her weird, on-and-off thing with Chris Martin ended last year. Before that, it was an on-and-off thing with Nicholas Hoult. Well, according to Star, J-Law is lonely. She doesn’t just want a hookup, she wants a relationship and she’s developing a bad attitude about it?

Jennifer Lawrence is one of the most sought-after women in Hollywood – but she’s feeling like persona non grata when it comes to love. The blonde beauty, 25, was overheard dishing all the gritty details to a friend over cappuccino at Alfred Coffee + Kitchen in Hollywood on March 7.

“Jen was talking to her friend about how Chris [Martin] was the last guy she hooked up with – and that was seven months ago!” reports the witness. “She said that she knows she could find random hookups, but she wants someone she cares about.”

Jennifer has opened up about her lack of luck in finding love. “No one ever asks me out,” she admitted. “I am very lonely every Saturday night.”

But part of the problem is her own bad attitude, says a friend: “She’s not exactly a social butterfly. She’s in a slump and feels hopeless, and that puts out a bad vibe. It’s just a vicious cycle of being single.”

I would argue that J-Law is basically the biggest star of her generation, and it’s difficult for her to find a guy at “her level” or a guy who is okay with her enormous fame and success. Not that she is in any way obsessed with guys being at her level – she could totally date someone outside of Hollywood and be quite happy, I think. I personally would love to see Jennifer go back to Hoult, just because they seemed to really care about each other and he always seemed fine with her stardom … unlike Chris Martin, who seems like the most delicate flower in the world when it comes to being outshone by his wife/girlfriend. Now, all that being said… it pisses me off that anyone would label Jennifer as “hopeless” and use such negative language about her, just because she’s single. J-Law is “just like us” – hopelessly dateless on a Saturday and BITTER!

Meanwhile, Jennifer seemed to slap back at claims that she’s done with the X-Men franchise after X-Men: Apocalypse in an interview with Empire just published this week. She previously declared that Apocalypse was her last one, but now she says: “I am dying to come back. I love these movies, I love being in them. I love ensemble movies because it’s not on anyone’s shoulders.” Yeah, we’ll see. I predict this will be her last one.

    After SEVEN MONTHS, she’s HOPELESS? Oh honey, you’re so damn young.

    • Gerta says:

      Yeah – try 4 YEARS honey – or the slow sexless walk through your 80’s and 90’s lol

    • wood dragon says:

      Try going through your entire adult life without any romantic relationships – or casual hook ups – and not just surviving the loneliness, but accepting that not all lives were meant to be the same.
      And then transcending all of it and still finding a positive purpose to life.

  2. Embee says:

    She regularly says in interviews that she gets sick frequently, is exhausted, and goes to bed early. That might be making it hard for her to date. Plus, she’s probably somewhat insulated by her fame. And heaven knows her “nitro” personality would not work for many people. She’d probably be compatible with someone significantly older who would find her endearing.

  3. Esther says:

    not buying this.

  4. Mia4s says:

    FFS! I don’t read them so I forget how disgustingly misogynist the tabloids. Hopeless because a woman is single at 24? More likely wildly busy, successful, and having a blast.

    These tabloids also have a homophobic bend. I remember a story saying her family was worried about her because she might end up an alcoholic, or a drug addict…..or gay!


    Wow tabloid journalists one of those things is really not like the others. It’s so disgusting how they write.

  5. pedro says:

    Until she will find a boyfriend we will have endless stories like this. People and media are so obsessed with her

  6. Catelina says:

    if she’s ‘hopeless’ after just 7 months of being single, i might as well just jump off a cliff and be done with it

  7. Size Does Matter says:

    There’s always John Meyer.

  8. Unpopular opinion says:

    She’s feeling hopeless because of all her naked pics all over Internet. She should be embarrassed. She so nasty!

  9. word says:

    OMG single for a whole 7 months? How does she show her face !

  10. perplexed says:

    The up and coming male stars in her age range are sort of bland. There’s no one from that crowd that stands out, as evidenced by the contenders for the part of Han Solo in the next Star Wars movie.

    She might have to get one of her brothers to set her up with someone from Kentucky…

    I really have no advice. I wouldn’t dare to tell a movie star I don’t personally know how to live her life. (But there really are slim pickings in the male star department for her age range, if tabloids feel she should be dating another star. I’m just saying’….).

    • Kimmy says:

      My two picks for her….

      1. Michael B. Jordan. He seems confident and mature enough to be able to deal with her fame.

      2. Prince Harry. She loves English guys. Plus he will always be more famous than her.

      • Locke Lamora says:

        In what world will Hary be more famous than her? He’s not that famous now, and when Will’s kids get older no one will care about Harry. Besides, why would she trade her career to be a glorified housewife.

        I could see her with Michael, or Jack O’Connell.

      • tealily says:

        “He’s not that famous now…” ??? What impossible standards of fame are you using???

      • Locke Lamora says:

        Maybe it depends where you are. He vacationed in my country a few years ago, no one really cared.

  11. lucy2 says:

    Star mag = likely fake.

    I would imagine it’s tough for her to find someone though, she works so much, and then seems to want to stay home when she’s not working, plus she’s hugely famous and top of the food chain in Hollywood right now.

  12. lila fowler says:

    I predict she’ll end up with someone a bit older than her.

  13. willful ignorance says:


    Jennifer is the weakest link in the X-Men movies. Margot Robbie should be taking over the role.

  14. The Original Mia says:

    Hopeless because she’s single? Girl, please. Come talk to me when it’s been years. And maybe…just maybe…enjoy being single, find yourself a nice FWB and call it a day.

  15. MrsNix says:

    Gotta call BS on that one. She’s rich, powerful, young, and gorgeous. She’s fine. If she’s not dating it’s because she doesn’t want to.

    That whole thing is just a whole lot of nope.

  16. Nicole says:

    Why does anyone take what Star says seriously? Seems like no actress can be single and okay with it…pretty sure she said on the Joy junket that she WAS NOT lonely because she was single. Let her be she’s 25

    Anyways this is her last movie for XMen. She never seemed to love the movies as much as THG at all. Where she did seem to love being on set with THG for XMen she was barely on set for the last movie. So I doubt she’s doing any more but it’s press time so she has to sell it.

  17. Spiderpig says:

    Yeah right, it’s in Star magazine and the entire thing is a conversation in a cafe that their anonymous source just happened to overhear.

    Fake fake fake fake fake

    Even if it was real, it’s beyond low to spy on someone and then publish their private conversation.

  18. Sarah says:

    I generally like Jennifer but find her to be a horrific Mystique.

    • artpunk44 says:

      UGH, this! I loved Rebecca Romijn. I found her portrayal of Mystique so striking and multi-faceted, as opposed to Jennifer’s portrayal.

    • KA says:

      Afraid I agree. We saw the first one recently on DVD and were startled by how bad her acting was in it. She’s excellent in THG and Silver Linings, and was amazing in WInter’s Bone. But her Mystique was plain awful.

  19. Crumpet says:

    It’s good for her to be single. It’s good for everyone. Serial dating/relationships are how people avoid self awareness.

  20. Grump says:

    Personally, I find 25 to be a really young age to settle down, or to begin to feel ‘hopeless’ about being single. Again, that’s just my perspective.

    I’m in my 30’s and have only just begun to get nervous about the possibility that I won’t find someone I want to be with, who wants to be with me. But, even still, I wouldn’t trade my life up until this point, because I’ve been able to do all the things I’ve wanted to do (and maybe would have had to make some sacrifices had I had a partner).

    I wonder, for someone like her, who has had such stratospheric success from such a young age, if the pressure to find a partner is greater because, having succeeded in everything else in life, maybe she is extra self-conscious about not ‘succeeding’ in this? Or, perhaps she feels like she has accomplished everything she’s wanted to do already, and so this is the last thing on her list. I don’t know, of course, if this is her perspective, but it’s possible.

    I guess, my question is, would she feel this way if she lived a very different life? I’m always curious about the impact of great success and stardom (probably because it’s totally foreign to me, haha!) on personal perspective and development. I wonder, if she was still struggling as an actor, would she be keen on finding a partner? Or perhaps she always would and her success/career has no bearing on it.

  21. Veronica says:

    Do I really believe J. Law feels “hopeless” or do I believe Star magazine is creating a headline because a highly successful woman is *gasp* single for a period of time?

    This being said, I could see “frustrated” rather than hopeless. I’m a very driven, career-oriented woman. It surprises me sometimes how much that impacts my ability to meet new people and date as compared to men I know with similar ambitions.

    I’m available, Jennifer.
