One of the stranger rumours/confirmed stories (?) making the rounds over the last week is that Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin are a new couple. Neither of their spokespeople have denied the romance yet and magazines are still reporting it, so it could be true – who knows? If it is true, The Sun (via Daily Mail) claims to know exactly why these two are so well suited: Jennifer is the anti-Goop.
‘Jennifer is loads of fun and they can’t stop laughing when they are together,’ a source told The Sun newspaper.
‘Chris feels he is dating someone who has everything he’s been missing out on in the past 11 years.
Friends believe that Jennifer is good for Chris following his split in March from clean-living 41-year-old Gwyneth.
Gwyneth is renowned for her healthy diet and strict fitness routine, while Jennifer smokes and enjoys tucking into pizza.
The source said Chris feels the Hunger Games star has given him a ‘new lease of life.’
‘Jennifer doesn’t take herself too seriously and when she is not filming she just wants to hang out and have a good time,’ the source added.
I mean, obviously the “source” is a summer intern who was told to make up some quotes, but I can see how this one could have a bit of truth to it. Gwyneth Paltrow has a stick so far up her ass, I’m surprised it’s not coming straight out of her mouth on the other end. I imagine it would be a welcome relief to be around someone who’s a bit less worried about whether or not a nitrate sneaked into her organic, greenhouse grown lettuce leaf.
I really hope this is actually happening. I love the idea of Chris and Jennifer as a couple!

Well, this is one I didn’t see coming. Apparently Jennifer Lawrence and Coldplay frontman (and soon-to-be former Mr. Paltrow) Chris Martin are an item. As in, a romantic one. Say whaaaat? What world is this? How did this happen?
From E! News:
Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin are seeing each other, multiple sources confirm to E! News. We’re told that the pair has been spending quality together since late June after the Oscar winner split with her X-Men costar Nicholas Hoult.
Right, so basically we just have to take E!’s word for this because there is no corroborating evidence, no photos of them together, nothing. Still, I think I’m into this. I think Chris is an okay guy, Jennifer’s great, so why not? It’s so bizarre, but sometimes that’s the kind of pairing that works the best!

Gwyenth Paltrow and Chris Martin announced their “conscious uncoupling” earlier this year, but there have been a million and one rumours about the possibility of them getting back together. They’re constantly hanging out together – more than any separated people usually do, even with kids in the picture – but don’t get ahead of yourself, because they’re not reuniting, they just really care about each other. BORING.
From 104.3′s Valentine in the Morning (via US Weekly):
“The truth is — well, I don’t really love talking about this stuff. But the thing we told everyone at the beginning of the year is true,” the 37-year-old said. “We are very close, we are not together. But, we’re…you know…that’s the truth… and uh, that’s it.”
“You know, there’s a lot of love,” he continued. “So there’s nothing — there’s no scandal I’m afraid. I wish i could give you scandal.”
Chris has always come off as a really decent guy, so I’m not surprised that he’s handled this entire thing in such a quiet and dignified way. It’s also really great for their kids that this whole thing has gone so smoothly. The last thing kids need is messy ass parents – especially famous ones – ruining their lives with unnecessary drama.

While married to Gwyneth Paltrow – or rather, while consciously coupled with her, I suppose, since they’re not actually divorced – Chris Martin followed a strict vegetarian diet. One would think that a grown man could choose which foods he eats, but Goop runs a tight ship and is not into animal products, apparently.
Well, worry no more – Chris changed his diet for “various reasons” and enjoys a bit of fish and whatnot now that he’s on his own… and he won’t apologize for it!
From BBC Radio 2 (via Radar Online):
“I felt like you should only eat something that you would be able to kill,” the Coldplay singer explained to BBC Radio 2. “I don’t know why on earth we’re talking about this. I have got to stop talking or there’ll be some sort of headline. Could you kill a fish? I wouldn’t like it but I probably could, so I’ll eat a fish . . . or a giraffe.”
“My daughter has been a vegetarian since she was born,” he revealed. “So, I keep getting tempted to go back, but I don’t eat very much meat.”
I’m a bit of a free spirit and think people should eat whatever they want (and not eat whatever they don’t). It’s all good – the world is a big place, food is plentiful in most places and we’re spoiled for choice, especially in the Western world. Live it up! However, I am a staunch omnivore and haaaaate preachy vegetarians/vegans. Like, chill with your soy and tofu and enjoy it, but I’mma have this steak and you can shut up if you don’t like it.
Also, way to make a child vegetarian because that’s YOUR preference. That’s one of the shittiest things you can do as a parent, I think. No wonder her kids always look so malnourished. And no, I’m not saying you can’t be healthy when you’re a vegetarian or vegan, but children need certain nutrients, sorry.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin decided to “consciously uncouple” from their nearly decade-long marriage just a few short months ago, and while there were rumours of cheating on both sides, the pair have remained pretty close. So close, in fact, that it seems like they may just give their relationship another shot.
From Radar Online:
“Chris still lives with her, they are amazingly lovey-dovey together and she still wears her wedding ring,” a source tells the paper of the pair, who share a $14 million Malibu mansion. “They may have consciously uncoupled a few months ago – but they seem to be recoupling now. No one will be surprised if they get back together.”
Friends say the break-up actually allowed the pair to breathe a little, and enjoy each other’s company without expectations.
“It’s true they had problems but in the weirdest way this ‘conscious uncoupling’ situation has relieved the pressure on them,” explains the insider.
Well, that’s that, I suppose. Given the sound of Coldplay‘s new album, Chris was having some major emo drama over their split, so it’s not really all that surprising. That, combined with Gwyneth’s terror over tarnishing her pristine (as she sees it) reputation, means this is a reunion that’s most likely on.

Look, One Direction has really catchy songs, okay? Just starting to type this article, I have ‘Story of My Life’ stuck in my head (and if you’ve ever heard it before, you probably do too, now) and I’m not ashamed to say I have the latest album in my iTunes. I’ve never listened to it, but I do own it and maybe I will one day! So what, who cares? Even Chris Martin loves them!
Here’s what the Coldplay frontman told BBC Radio 1′s Zane Lowe:
“I think One Direction are the biggest band in the world, their songs are great. I’m saying One Direction are brilliant and I’m not kidding.
“You know why? Because their songs are really good and I don’t think that any of them are going to go solo. I think they appreciate their chemistry from watching their movie… Harry [Styles] has come to a couple of our shows, I think I probably said the same thing about chemistry.”
Ha! He also claimed that he started questioning her sexuality because he was enamoured with Harry’s hair. Hilarious – especially because I still don’t understand how anyone finds Harry Styles remotely attractive, but perhaps I’m not the right audience. I still like the songs, though! Here – now you can partake with me (I love to torture you!!!):
