In most unexpected celebrity couple news, Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin are apparently dating in the wake of their recent and respective breakups.
The attractive duo has been spending “quality time together” since late June after the Oscar winner broke up with Nicholas Hoult, her X-Men co-star, E! reports.
All the celebrity news source claims is that the two are “seeing each other,” so it’s not known how seriously. The site is reasonably credible, however.
Lawrence, who celebrates her 24th birthday today, called it quits amicably with Hoult earlier this summer, blaming the usual distance and careers.
Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow announced their Conscious Uncoupling after more than 10 years of marriage in March, after which he was linked to Alexa Chung.
It’s unclear if those two were ever more than friends, but Chris and Gwyneth have also stayed on good terms, even living together at their L.A. home as of June.
“They’ve tried to keep things as stable and consistent as possible for their kids,” a source said. “They still spend a lot of time together as a family.”
“They haven’t changed things since they announced they were splitting. Other than taking off their wedding bands, they seem closer than ever.”
As for the Silver Linings Playbook star, it’s not clear when Martin and Lawrence started getting close, as this is the first we’ve heard of the love connection.
You can’t knock the man’s taste, though. That’s for sure.
