Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin are reportedly dating, fresh off their so-called ‘amicable’ splits from exes Nicholas Hoult and Gwyneth Paltrow. Despite their 13-year age difference, we think that this coupling is so crazy it just might work!
The day of Jennifer Lawrence‘s 24th birthday, she was totally outed for her reported secret romance with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, 37. Happy birthday! While the news is still pretty fresh, neither party have yet to confirm or deny their rumored romance. Either way, we support them! They’re a bit of an odd couple with their 13-year age difference, but we think that it just might work!
Jennifer Lawrence & Chris Martin Secret Romance: So Crazy It Just Might Work
Jennifer and Chris have been “spending quality time together” for about two months now, sources revealed to E! Online.
Opposites attract — or so romantic comedies have led us to believe — and there are no further opposites in a romantic pairing than Jennifer and Chris. As far as we can tell, the only common ground they share is that they both have blonde hair and they both hide from the paparazzi like vampires from sunlight.
While a 13-year age difference is not so extreme for Hollywood, it’s still pretty shocking given that Chris “consciously uncoupled” (read: separated) from wife Gwyneth Paltrow, 41, just a few months ago in March after a 12-year relationship. Not to mention his two children, Moses, 8, and Apple, 10.
Meanwhile, Jennifer’s split from on-again/off-again boyfriend Nicholas Hoult, 24, became public knowledge in July, though sources close to the couple previously revealed to HollywoodLife.com that “most of their mutual friends believe that love will find a way and that they will get back together in the future. They have a very special bond that they will not find elsewhere.”
Chris Martin & Jennifer Lawrence: He’s Probably Enjoying Eating Pizza Again, And She Could Use A Mature Relationship
In the meantime, Chris could probably use a little levity in his life following his split from Gwyneth. Gwyneth had the family on a pretty strict diet — she even revealed in her cookbook It’s All Good that depriving her family of carbs leaves them with a “specific hunger that comes with avoiding carbs.” Really.
Jennifer’s love of french fries and pizza is as well-known as her innate ability to get nominated for Oscars — we’re sure that, if the rumors are true, that they’re enjoying spending nights in and ordering the most unhealthy food that Los Angeles will deliver. (Crispy kale, probably.)
On the other side of the coin, Jennifer may be ready for a more adult relationship. While it’s unlikely that Chris is looking to tie the knot with anyone else any time soon, he certainly knows how to make a commitment. Considering Jennifer and Nicholas’ on-and-off status, it might be good for her to gain some worldly experience.
And hey, for all those Jennifer/Nicholas shippers, maybe her relationship with Chris will make her a better person before she goes back to Nick, and maybe he’ll learn something about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness over in Tokyo as he films Equals with Kristen Stewart, 24.
Or, maybe Jennifer and Chris are totally, overwhelmingly in love and they’ll get married and have a million beautiful, talented, blonde babies.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Do you like Jennifer and Chris as a couple in theory, or do you need to learn more first? Or are you a diehard Jennifer/Nicholas shipper? Let us know!
