Jennifer Lawrence has been a hot topic for months now thanks to her incredible portrayal in the movie Joy that has got an Oscar buzz going, suggesting that the star might, in fact, bring home another award to add to her shelf of accolades. Lately, however, there is even more attached to the talk of Lawrence. The star had been in an on-and-off relationship with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin for a portion of 2014 and 2015, yet the two broke it off and seemingly left Lawrence a bit dismayed over dating life as a Hollywood big shot.
The star has apparently found her way back into the world of celebrity dating after rumors made the rounds that she was spending extra time with Liam Hemsworth. Yet, those claims have yet to be verified. The newest development in the dating life of Lawrence involves another Hollywood heartthrob, Chris Evans.
Hollywood Life reports that the two have been getting cozy. A source spoke with the publication, and the celebrity news site unveiled the supposed new romance.
“The red carpet is not ready for this. After rumors swirled that she and Liam Hemsworth, 26, were a couple, all hope of a hook up was lost when he rekindled his romance with fiancee, Miley Cyrus, 23. But it was obviously for the best, because now Jen is being linked to superhero Chris Evans!”
The source suggests that Lawrence, 25, and Evans, 34, have only been dating for a short time, but that they are definitely getting comfortable with one another.
“It’s very new. They just started seeing each other a couple of weeks ago. Only their closest friends know.”
Lawrence and Evans do have a couple mutual friends in common, including Chris Pratt. The publication also shares words of the source, who insists that Jen’s new bestie Amy Schumer is responsible for the setup!
“Amy had actually been pushing Jen to date him, telling her how hot Chris is and how crazy she’d be if she didn’t go for it.”
It’s fitting that Schumer is inspired to advise Jen to give the relationship a shot, seeing as she is enjoying her own romance with designer Ben Hanisch. The two recently became much more public with their relationship and both simply look smitten with one another and as happy as can be. Schumer is clearly wanting the same for her pal Jen.
As Entertainment Tonight shares, Hanisch has made his affection for Schumer known by expressing his love for the comedian.
“The 29-year-old Chicago resident was Schumer’s date to Sunday’s 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards, and was all about his girlfriend’s sexy Calvin Klein dress. ‘One more from last night because this girl looked insanely gorgeous,’ Hanisch Instagrammed on Monday. ‘And I’m in love with her.'”
It’s certainly lovely to learn that the Trainwreck star has scooped such a doting and talented guy. It’s obviously anticipated that Jennifer Lawrence will enjoy the same happiness in her own love life, and it’s wonderful that her pal is pushing for her to take the step and go for it, even after heartbreak over Chris Martin. An actor like Evans, who is handsome and talented, would be the perfect complement to Lawrence. Although the star has been insanely busy in her career lately, if the source is reliable, it’s fantastic that she is finding time for romance.
Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence have been working together on prepping their script for a sure-to-be hilarious film they are set to star in together, so girl chat must come into play during their conversations and work meetings. Schumer’s been a great influence thus far.
