Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin definitely appear to be together. The Hunger Games actress was spotted outside Martin’s Malibu home, sparking more rumors that the two are dating. It also appears that this is no rebound relationship for either of them.
According to those close to the couple, they romance is the real thing. They started dating some time in July, and their passion is just getting more and more intense. A source told Hollywood Life that Martin is even in love with Lawrence.
Previously, Guardian Liberty Voice reported that it was the actress’ laid back attitude that attracted him to her. At first it just appeared that he needed a break from Gwyneth Paltrow’s strict lifestyle and diet, but now there seems to be something more. They seem to genuinely enjoy each other’s company, and have grown closer the more they get to know each other.
Lawrence’s recent nude photo scandal has not stopped the romance, either. The Coldplay front man has been there for her throughout the scandal, both emotionally and physically. He has helped her turn her back on the hacker, rather than giving him the satisfaction of embarrassing her. She has stepped out in front of the public with him, rather than just wait for the promotion of her new movie, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.
There is always the risk that friends and family members are not going to accept a new girlfriend. It makes sense that the two would like to downplay their relationship. It was just months after he and Paltrow “consciously uncoupled,” but now Martin and Lawrence definitely appear together. The best thing is that his friends have reportedly welcomed her into the group.
Staying out of the public eye has not been a way to hide their relationship. It has been a way to be more respectful towards Paltrow and the two children Martin has with her. It will be difficult for Apple and Moses to hear that their parents are splitting up and then that their father has a new, younger girlfriend.
Martin is also not cutting ties with his soon-to-be ex-wife, either. The two are parenting their children together and have split amicably. Paltrow even had nothing negative to say about his new girlfriend, admitting that he could do a lot worse when it comes to Hollywood women.
Each party involved has been respectful of others with this new relationship. It shows that maturity is possible in Hollywood, and that they are doing the best for their children. Paltrow and Martin could no longer make it work, and he has found love with a new woman.
It certainly appears that Lawrence and Martin are certainly together, after two months of people not entirely sure. The two have been spotted on romantic dates together, and the American Hustle star has been spotted outside his home. However, the two have not publicly stated anything and neither have their reps. It is understandable if they want to take things slow, and both currently have a lot happening in their lives.
