Jennifer Lawrence. Chris Martin. Dating. What?!

That’s the latest from the gossips on Friday with an E! News report pairing the newly single “Hunger Games” actress with the consciously uncoupled Coldplay frontman. (Insert Jennifer Lawrence weird face gif here.)

The unlikely pair are said to have been “spending quality together since late June,” the site said. Heat (via People) and the Daily Mail also reported that Lawrence was seen flirting with the British rocker at his London concert.

How convenient, because news broke in early August (also from E!) that Lawrence had split with her British beau and “X-Men” co-star Nicholas Hoult.


But quality time and flirting are hardly the same thing as dating, and neither camp has confirmed the supposed romance. (Gossip Cop gave the story a stagnant 5 on its one-to-10 Real or Rumor scale).

Anyway, the father of two, 37, “consciously uncoupled” with his wife of 10 years, Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow, in March -- her words, not his and he recently said that they remain “very close.” Now she’s rumored to be dating “Glee” co-creator Brad Falchuk, and Lawrence’s ex is said to be dating “Twilight” alum Kristen Stewart.

Lawrence, who turned 24 on Friday, may have a thing or two in common with Martin’s ex. She’s currently an “It” girl, she’s an actress, she has an Oscar, she can be polarizing and, well, she’s blond. Most of the time.

Other than that, we’re thinking that the unfiltered, Doritos-loving Kentucky native and the vegan GOOP founder have little else overlapping in their Venn Diagram.
