Jennifer Lawrence Thought Chris Martin & Gwyneth Paltrow Were Too Close

Jennifer Lawrence Thought Chris Martin & Gwyneth Paltrow Were Too Close

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin‘s split has been making headlines this week and more details are emerging about why they ended their relationship.

“Everyone jumped the gun with this romance,” a source told People. “It is hard for her to understand the feelings between Chris and Gwyneth [Paltrow].”

“She broke it off with Chris,” another insider told the mag. “She was tired of the spotlight on their relationship and she also thought that Chris and Gwyneth were a little too close for comfort. It was an odd situation for her.”

Gwyneth was seen touching Chris‘ face after they had dinner together last week.

    last time I checked,american’s still have the driver’s seat on the left side so unless gwyneth has really long arms, how could she touch his face from the other side of car?

    plus let’s be honest, they were never dating in the first place it was just a way from Jen’s PR team to draw attention away from the whole nude pic scandal.

  • happy666

    Yeah of course. Now blame the good connected Gwyneth…

  • NinjaVites

    She wasn’t driving. She was in the back seat. Gwyneth only (recklessly) drives Vespa scooters. Why would JLaw waste her time dating a man that hasn’t even filed for divorce. It’s like he is just waiting for gwyeneth to stop dating other men.

  • I don’t have a name

    We don’t need updates they broke up let’s move on.

  • Clara Tezolin

    Jennifer did it right, Chris does not deserve she!

    Gwyneth is ridiculous!

  • boweryboy

    If you actually looked at the pictures you would see Gwynnie getting into the passenger side of the car.

    She doesn’t drive. She has a driver for that. Driving is for poor people.

  • carrie

    Dear JLaw,i hope for their kids that they stay very close!

  • whateverwillbewillbe13

    Considering they were married and went through an amicable divorce AND are parents to several children, I would hope they are close. This is the life she was THINKING of entering before even committing to dating. I don’t feel sorry for her.

  • Denise

    Stop..stop..stop please. Just…..stop! All bullshit,only bullshit,always bullshit. Stop!!! This was a epic fail PR relationship. STOP!

  • Broadzilla

    Does not deserve “she?”

  • alex

    is natural…..chris and gwyneth are married 11 years and all this time never can forget for this couple….jennifer,find another man,you’re young and the men don’t miss you!!!!!!

  • ashknewit

    She’s 24 or whatever and he’s 45 or whatever with two kids and a domineering wife. That would rarely add up to long term, esp if you’re both famous and likely to have lots of options.

  • dalovelee

    Chris Martin was not worth her time. I am sure not that they have split up..Gwyneth won’t even be interested in spending all that amicable time with Martin. GP played the ex wife with kids and let’s be friendly …and knew that would c block Martin. GP wanted out the marriage so why try the let’s be super friends once they decided to split. BTW didn’t she c block Chris and that fashionista socialite Alexa?

  • Name

    Deni’s right. This was all a PR stunt, started by Paltrow’s team to take focus off her relationship with Falchuk. Then Lawrence’s team kept it going to keep the focus off her nudes. Martin was a schmuck who went along with it because it helped his image to be linked to Lawrence.

    Now that “Mockingjay” press is starting up, Lawrence doesn’t need this “showmance” as a diversion anymore because people will now be busy talking about the movie. So her PR team ended it, and now the tabs are making up all sorts of reasons why it did.

    With this end to this “showmance”, they just lost the biggest draw to their rags and sites, so they’re trying to milk this “break up” for all it’s worth to keep people interested and reading.

  • Name

    Finally, someone who figured out the real reason why Lawrence’s team kept this “showmance” going as long as it did! It might’ve been started by Paltrow’s team, but Lawrence’s worked it to their advantage.

  • Courtney

    I doubt that they were in that serious a relationship to begin with, Jennifer and Chris I mean. It sounds like one big PR thing, from start to finish. I mean, she “splits” from him just before the big promotional tour for Mockingjay! As for him and Gwyneth spending time, it’s for their kids’ sake, which I admire and understand and I’m sure they spent time with each other and their kids before all this started happening. We don’t know for sure why this “split” occurred, because the tabs keep contradicting each other. Jen and Chris were hardly ever photographed during their “dating period” except for her turning up at his concerts and a few grainy pictures of them getting off an airplane, and even then they hardly looked lovey-dovey as they departed and got into separate cars. Chris even bought a house right across from Gwyneth so he could be closer to his kids! Even if they were dating, she was second choice and if they have indeed split because she wasn’t his priority, then that’s her decision. But we don’t know for sure what’s going on. Still, if they were together casually, it’s over now and thank goodness!

  • Name

    C’mon Courtney, you know they were never “dating”. There were too many discrepencies, contradictions, and outright lies during this whole “showmance” for any of it to have been true at all.

  • Courtney

    No, I know that. I was making full use of the quotation marks around certain words :) After a quick recap that I left for you in my last comment, it makes sense that they didn’t date and that their PR teams likely fed tabloids a lot of stories with no background evidence to keep focus on/off certain things. I have no idea why Chris’s PR team went along. He released a new album, but isn’t that promotion over with? And now that Mockingjay’s coming up, Jennifer’s PR team has “split” her from Chris to keep focus on her movie. Plus, with her being busy with Joy (whenever filming for that will start) and X-Men and possibly the Glass Castle production, it’s going to be hard to find time for a “reunion.” Chris made his decision to be near his family more. She needs a guy who will put her first.

  • Name

    Maybe we’ll now hear of him getting back with Chung in the near future. I certainly hope Lawrence doesn’t get back with Hoult. It not working twice is enough, she doesn’t need to try it a third time. Then it only looks like she’s desperate and clingy, not capable of being on her own or her own person. She’s better than that and him, who never seemed to put as much effort into the relationship as she did.

  • Courtney

    He seems like a nice enough guy, but maybe you’re right. She seemed more in love with him then he was with her. Also, when they were together, it sounded like his team alerted the paps to where they were so they could be photographed. Unlike Chris and Jennifer, even in paparazzi infested waters, all the top sources, including People, never got one picture of them out and about. They’re both private people, but in a PR relationship, wouldn’t they have had to have some pictures together? Just to give off the impression that they were dating? Or was the word of an anonymous “source” good enough for them?

  • Name

    I got the impression Hoult was using Lawrence the second time around to further his career. He made sure he was with her during awards season when he wasn’t any other time. The paps always seemed to know when and where they were together, even at his friend’s house party outside of London. When the paps took pics of them , he always looked at the camera or made sure he was seen while she covered up. His sister talked to the tabs about Lawrence’s visit over the holidays and his new house (which Lawrence may or may not have moved into). I even saw a press release about how she was going to join him and his friends at some music festival in England in June. For an extremely private person, he made sure he was seen and linked to Lawrence whenever possible.

    As for Lawrence and Martin-the tabs were getting tired of having little to report between her and Hoult, aside from the occasional flipping off the paps by her. They knew any new relationship involving her was gold. The fact it was with Martin, Paltrow’s ex with the whole “conscious uncoupling”, was too good to be true. The tabs were fed one story after another from a “source” or similar informants. With all that going on, the tabs didn’t need pics to sell this “showmance” for some people to believe it.

  • Courtney

    Once people began to notice there were no pictures accompanying the stories, however, the tide of opinion wasn’t exactly in the tabloids’ favor. Do they care if their stories are believed or not? Do they read the comments section on their websites? It just made me mad when they came up with new stories about her and Chris because it just seemed to random to be true and I didn’t want people heaping more crap on her for her personal life. The tabloids make me sick! And you know me, I don’t want my impression of her to change. Funny how E began this whole mess and now, it’s ended it too.

  • Denise

    All talking of the pics. But we’ve got photos of Jen and Martin off a private plane together. Plus all the concerts. This is enough to make people believe that they are together! Especially the tabloids. There was no need for another. As i said time ago..it was no casually the presence of the paparazzo at the private airport..private airport..not the LAX. At the right hour of the landing.

  • Denise

    I always thought that their was a story from high school..not passionate. Not an adult story. Besides, i don’t think that between them there was this “great love”. They broke up twice..now are 5 months..are many. Better Nicholas that Chris Martin this is sure..but Jennifer has to think to herself and maybe fall in love with a normal guy.

  • Name

    I don’t think they cared if people believed the stories, only that they read or clicked on them. I don’t think they read the comments, but cared how many there were. More comments meant more website clicks. As long as the tabs got those, they kept churning out stories. The “source” and others kept giving them something to write about, and they made stuff up when they didn’t get anything new or *tantalizing*.

    You can’t get worked up about what they wrote about Lawrence. People will form their own opinions from things other than tab stories. If they didn’t like her before, this just reinforced them. There may have been some that were turned off by what they read. But if Lawrence’sLawrence’s PR team wasn’t concerned enough to end this “showmance” sooner, then it really isn’t worth getting upset over.

    I’m not surprised used that it started and ended with E!. Paltrow’s team picked a “reputable” tab to make sure people believed this “showmance”, so Lawrence’s team needed to use the same one to make people believe the end of it.

  • Denise

    @Name @Courtney in a tweet Jen’s friend @Kalestorm_ i think that mocks Nicholas Hoult. I’m not sure..i don’t understand your language very well xD she used this expression “i laugh my ass” or something like that,abbreviate. Regard his publicity of the Jaguar commercial…it’s not a nice thing from a friend of Jen. It’s interesting.

  • Name

    The PR teams knew they had to produce sone pics in order for them to keep this “showmance” going. The pics in Vegas and airport were enough “proof” for those who already believed or wanted to believe it was true. They didn’t care if Martin and Lawrence weren’t actually “together” backstage, showing affection at the airport, or left in separate cars. The fact they were photographed “together” at all was enough “proof” for them.

    The tabs liked the pics because that gave them more stuff to write about and also make people believe whatever they wrote was true. It worked to convince some people, but didn’t for a whole lot more.

  • Denise

    In a tweet Jen’s friend @Kalestorm_ i think that mocks Nicholas Hoult. I’m not sure, because i don’t understand your language very well..but seems that she mocks him..for his publicity of the Jaguar commercial. It’s not a nice thing, especially from a good friend of Jennifer. See yourself..maybe i misunderstood. Probably xD

  • Name

    Hard to say. Maybe she thought the whole commercial idea was a bit *cheesy*, and he looked ridiculous in it. I haven’t seen it, and really don’t care if I do.

  • Denise

    Exact. Did not need anything else. The sure thing is that are Jen’s PR who started this “break up”.

  • TeamBella76

    Jennifer doesn’t need to be part of that mess ! Kids or no kids we all know they’ve crossed the line and it’s weird. And who the hell knows what really happened. Good riddance can we get past this ?

  • TeamBella76

    That’s not the point ! Kids or no kids let’s be honest they’ve crossed the line a couple of times I’m glad Jennifer isn’t part of this B.S

  • Denise

    Yeah..but the expression that she used it’s not nice, right? xD

  • TeamBella76

    What are you talking about ? She could give a damn if you feel sorry for her ! It’s normal for people to get out of a relationship were we all know something is still going on. And it’s weird throwing her bday parties and blah blah blah feel sorry for those kids not Jen !

  • Denise

    I saw the publicity..and do not laugh, is a serious thing and fascinating (the publicity)..maybe she think that he was ridiculous. The expression “lmao” it means mock..i think. xD interesting.

  • tia maria

    who says gwyneth is dating anyone?

  • joe

    you dont have to write a 300 page essay on how good jenifer is and how hoult used her for his career my name is joe and i am from london and i met him twice and i can say you that he sweet and respect his fans a lot and he is angel where as any one guess what kind of women this jenifer is who dumped two men with in few months

  • Name

    Just because you met him twice and he’s nice to fans doesn’t mean he’s an “angel”. You have no idea what he’s like in his personal life. I’ve seen others write worse things about him. What I’ve recounted is what actually happened when they were together. Like it or not, it’s the truth.

    You, on the other hand, believe Lawrence was really “dating” Martin to say she dumped two guys. Nobody knows what happened for her and Hoult to split up. Maybe he broke it off, maybe they both did.

  • Courtney

    Ok, now that the “split” has been confirmed, People magazine and a lot of other tabloids have been focusing on the upcoming premiere of Mockingjay. This is taking precedence over news of the split. Also, the fact that Chris (along with his ex Gwyneth) attended the amFAR gala last night (in which Gwyneth called him father of the year in her intro) seems kind of fishy. What are your thoughts and explanations?

  • Denise

    I saw the pics. Normal administration. They are also a soap opera. Make the comedy. Anyway..there was no relationship..so,nothing needs to be official. But,yes,maybe the tabs remain quiet..i hope there too.

  • Name

    Not surprise by any of this. Everyone got what they needed/wanted from the “showmance”, so now it’s over and they all go back to their lives like nothing happened (which it didn’t!).

    Lawrence wanted focus off her nudes-check. Now everyone’s busy talking about “Mockingjay” and not the nudes or Martin. Big win (and relief) for her, both personally and career-wise.

    Paltrow wanted focus off of her and Falchuk-check. When the news did come out last week, tabs were busy talking about Lawrence being out and her umbrella. Now Paltrow can have her relationship with no tabs bothering her.

    Martin wanted an image upgrade-check. Got it with being linked to Lawrence. Now he can be the “good ex” to Paltrow and good dad to his kids without the paps following him around (they didn’t before the “showmance” because nobody cared about him).

  • Name

    I stumbled onto the commercial and watched it. That’s 1 1/2 min. wasted of my life I’ll never get back.

    The whole commercial is stupid, and Hoult’s delivery doesn’t help. I’m not sure what he’s trying to convey (sinister?, evil?), but it comes off being *cheesy*. He must’ve been paid well to do it, because it certainly doesn’t make anyone think well of his acting skills.

    I can see why Lawrence’s friend was laughing at it. I did too, along with some eye rolling.

  • Name

    lmao=laughing my a** off. Yes, she’s mocking Hoult. As I said above, I can see why. It’s a stupid commercial and he
    wasn’t that good in it.

    There’s a lot about Lawrence and Hoult’s relationship
    the public doesn’t know. Maybe it wasn’t all wonderful, despite what Lawrence said in her Vanity Fair interview when talking about the nudes. After her friend’s comment, it makes you wonder…

  • joe

    i got it completely you are actually the dumb useless fan of that 2 feet josh Hutcherson and maniac visitor of that joshifer fansite for them jenifer is made for him and rest of her boyfreind have relatiuonship with her for PR isnt it
    and they talk bad and abusive things for nick or chris martin and for
    them jenifer can do no wrong and she has been used by nick for his
    career and for his career sake she sent that vulgar pics so that he could win oscar

  • Denise

    Maybe the entire publicity is stupid xD but,mocks the ex boyfriend of you’re best friend…mmm it’s not a nice thing. Makes you think…but,i have the impression that these “best friend” from Kentucky..are not so “best”. I don’t know..they give me bad feelings..Laura and Lauren are very best friends for Jennifer..but these of Kentucky..mmm..

  • Denise

    Nicholas is a good guy. We say just that maybe he and Jennifer were not so in love..because 2 breaks do not happen casually. But Nicholas is a good guy of course!

  • Name

    I’m not a fan of Hutcherson or Martin. In fact, I had no idea who Hutcherson was until “Hunger Games” and Martin until this “showmance” with Lawrence. I really could care less about either of them. What I wrote about Hoult with Lawrence can be found by looking at old stories and pics. Once again, like it or not, it’s the truth.

    I’m not a huge fan of Lawrence either. While I can admire her talent, I think she’s vulgar, crass, and immature, especially for an A-list Hollywood star who’s looked up to by tweens/teens. She’s not being a very good role model for them. If she really wants to be the role model she says she does, she needs to clean up her act.

  • Denise

    This has a forename : soap opera. The more i think..and more i am convinced that is all fabricated. I have an explanation..the mother of all the explanations..i’m telling you later because now i don’t have time. But it’s really interesting. A question rather than an explanation..i had thought of that before..

  • Name

    On the other hand, I wonder about her LA friends, especially Laura. Some of the things I’ve read she’s talked about in her blog make you wonder if she’s a bad influence on Lawrence. She certainly is on the wild side.
    I’m sure her KY friends don’t care if Hoult is her ex or not. The commercial is stupid, there’s no getting around that, and he’s in it. Hard not to make fun of him when he’s supposed to help sell the car and the commercial ends up being that bad, partly because of him.

  • Denise

    Laura was in the nude leaks with Jennifer..she is older of Jen..yes,i think that she is “wild”. Her friends of Kentucky,i don’t know..give me bad feelings,at skin..
