Did Jennifer Lawrence & Chris Martin Spend New Year's Eve Together?!

Did Jennifer Lawrence & Chris Martin Spend New Year's Eve Together?!

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin appear to have spent New Year’s Eve together, if reports emerging on social media are correct!

The 24-year-old actress and the 37-year-old singer were spotted by a fellow diner at a sushi restaurant in Los Angeles, but there’s no word if this photograph is indeed from Wednesday (December 31) or from a previous date.

It was reported in late October that the couple split after dating for four months, but then a week later another report surfaced that said they were still together. If the details emerging with this photo are accurate, it would confirm the latter.

UPDATE: According to People, the dinner happened on December 30 at Kiwami Sushi in Studio City, Calif.

“They were engulfed in their little world of conversation,” a diner told the mag. “They were into each other and not noticing anyone else around them.”

DO YOU THINK Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin are still dating? Bigger picture inside…

    If they wanted a romantic dinner, they would have chosen somewhere more private. They’re both pretty private people. Don’t get your balls in an uproar. For all we know they could just be friends having dinner. I do that all the time with one of my guy friends. This could be platonic. They didn’t look very lovey dovey.

  • Leonardo Pedroza

    Wasn’t she dating Liam Hemsworth?

  • Evelyn Apricots

    Perhaps this is Chris Martin’s response to Gwyneth’s Harper’s Bazaar article?

  • Courtney

    Like he’s trying to get back at her?

  • Dude

    I agree. If they wanted to keep a romance underwraps they wouldn’t choose such a public place for a rendezvous.

  • TeamBella76

    They look like friends and that whole Liam thing was B.S I do think her and Liam are attracted to each other but I doubt they would date their best friends you know how that goes.

  • Courtney

    True! And they didn’t look like they were holding hands or glued to each other’s lips. They looked like they were holding a serious conversation.

  • Courtney

    I’ve been saying they look like they’re just talking. For all we know it’s a dinner between friends!

  • Evelyn Apricots

    Just to affirm they (GP & CM) are not getting back together. The way I read the article, it sounds like GP is leaving the door open for reconcilliation.

  • Evelyn Apricots

    I disagree. They have been away from each other for a couple of months. I think they are reconnecting either as friends or maybe possibly more.

  • TeamBella76

    I hope their just friends ! She needs someone with a lot less baggage.

  • Courtney

    She could have been there in Europe when he had the art show and a performance in London earlier this month. She had the time and money. But she didn’t go. Plus, the interview with her grandmother suggesting that Chris was coming to her place for Christmas was fake. There’s nothing serious about their relationship. You can say what you will and I respect that, but to me, there was too much evidence that the “relationship” wasn’t as serious and real as the media made it out to be.

  • millerz

    i love the reports that Liam & Jen realized in Germany that they’re both “the one for each other” and then this picture emerges. Let them liveeee! Happy New Year everyone, let’s all go on these sites less and live our lives ;) Xx

  • Courtney

    Reconnecting as friends? Definitely a possibility. We’re both speculating on this though :) Happy New Year!

  • Courtney

    Remember she had a dinner with Liam in New York in November during the Mockingjay promo going on over there. No proof positive that they were dating. Guys and girls can go out for platonic dinners.

  • Name

    JJ doesn’t know anything about what’s going on with Lawrence and Martin. Their info is from what’s been posted on social media. That’s why they’re so fuzzy on *details* of this “date”. In fact, they have NONE, let alone “emerging” ones to say Lawrence and Martin are “still together”.

    As for the pic-it sure doesn’t look like a *romantic* dinner in the least! It looks like they’re having a serious conversation. Martin looks serious, not smiling at all, and neither is Lawrence. In fact, she almost looks like she’s getting a lecture-even looks a little upset, like she doesn’t like what he’s saying. Their body language looks somewhat stiff and doesn’t convey relaxed/joking/casual, and certainly not *romantic* in any way. They also don’t look to be dressed for a *romantic* night on the town, on New Year’s Eve or any night.

    It looks like Lawrence’s plate has already been taken away, and the bottles of whatever they were drinking are almost empty. The fact they look to be almost done means they had been there for awhile before whoever took this pic, either because the person had just gotten to the diner or didn’t notice them until some time later. So that indicates Lawrence and Martin likely weren’t joking/laughing or anything else that would’ve drawn attention to themselves, or someone else would’ve noticed them and posted a pic earlier in the course of their dinner. After all, Lawrence is one of the most-recognized people around, and this is in LA.

    It’s also not like they’re in a secluded booth-they’re pretty much out in the open at a table against a wall. The place isn’t fancy, maybe just a little mom/pop diner, certainly not like a celeb hangout where the paps would be lurking to get pics. This isn’t an attempt at a private “date”, but looks more like a *business meeting*.

    No, this looks like it might be another attempt to “clear the air” between them, like the “pap walk” visit Lawrence did to Martin’s after their “break up”. Some tabs are still running “showmance” stories which aren’t making Martin look good, like those saying he’s sleeping with both Paltrow and Lawrence or stringing Lawrence along with promises to get back together.

    Other tabs are running stories that seem to be coming from Paltrow’s PR, because they’re talking about “reconciliation”. It could be Martin’s fighting back with this, just to show people he and Paltrow aren’t getting back together. Maybe after he was used by Lawrence’s PR for her image, he’s having her return the favor by using her now to help him shoot down Paltrow’s stories.

  • Name

    There was far more to show there wasn’t a “relationship” beyond that of friends than there ever was to *prove* they were “dating”.

  • Name

    The timing of this pic is highly questionable. Interesting a pic of Lawrence and Martin comes out now, after so many stories lately of Paltrow and him “reconciling” and her big article saying maybe they should’ve stayed married.

    What better way for Martin to shoot those stories down than to have a pic of him with Lawrence just *happen* to pop up at the same time. Sort of like the private airport pics just *happened* the same day there was a second leak of Lawrence’s nudes. Then, the tabs talked about the pics and not the nudes. Now the tabs will talk about this pic and not about Paltrow and Martin “reconciling”.

    Seems a little too *convenient* to be *coincidental*.

  • dalovelee

    This pic is from another time..Gwyneth and Chris were at a spa together for the holidays..at least that was the leaked news from goopy’s camp.

    whatever..I hope it’s not anything near her dating him..He’s a creep.

  • Name

    Just to show how clueless the tabs are, DM is now running a story that says this pic was taken in Las Vegas.

    I did see two tweets earlier in the evening. One guy said something about telling him if anyone sees Lawrence in Las Vegas, the other around 10 pm PST (after the pic was posted) from another guy saying he just had a shot with Lawrence. No mention of Martin being with her in his tweet.

    Now those could both be just people trying to get attention. But it’s also likely where DM is coming up with Lawrence and Martin being in Las Vegas instead of LA. Proves no tab *knows* anything-not where (city or diner), when (30th or 31st), who took it (patron or pap), and most importantly, why there were even having dinner together at all. From that pic, it didn’t seem to be for *romance*.

  • Storm

    This honestly looks like a business meeting rather than a romantic dinner. Maybe they are working together on something or indeed “just friends”.

  • Courtney

    I saw something from a poster on another article that this was Chris’s hair length during the iHeart music festival. Maybe the pic was taken around that time? Nobody knows the exact date, so this could have been taken back in September or October. Maybe it’s recent, maybe not. The fact that the person who took the didn’t comment on it until now seems strange—unless it really is from last night or two days ago. If they were there earlier, why did no one else comment about it on Twitter right away? Are you getting what I’m saying? :)

  • Denise

    Omg. Is just a pic. That we did not have for months during their fekalationship! This show how easy it is take a photo of Chris Martin & Jennifer Lawrence at dinner or another place in LA! Open the eyes! They never dated..and this pic is a proof. What is the sense,to stay together..how long? 1 and half month? 2 months? Then,the noisy “break up” from Eonline at the end of october…then nothing in november and december (she in november flirted with Hemsworth during MJ press,he played at the happy family with his wife)..now suddenly, this dinner in a sushi place..in public not in private..what is the sense? A 37years old man like Martin have lost his brain?! At 37 years, he still makes these little games?! Come on…simple explanation..they are friends! We are in 2015, a man and a woman can not be just friends? Anyway, the source of this pic is tumblr..the girl who posted it is not the girl who took the pic, but just a friend. So probably this dinner was on 30th december, not 31th. I wonder..now start again all the showmance? Well, they sought it! After all that they passed with tabloids, they go to a public dinner..a private thing, no?!

  • ell

    She does my head in, I seriously don’t get why she’s with him. He’s boring, and has already been married and has children, while she’s young and could have it all. MEH.

  • Jes sica

    Hair is too long for this to be recent. Her hair was much shorter when in Louisville just 4 days ago. Looks more late November, probably catching up. Because, you know, exes can still be friendly.

  • ell

    I never understand how can people judge whether something is romantic from a few sneaky pics? The fact that they’re out&about means they’re aware they might be photographed, so I doubt that even if they were still dating they’d be affectionate with each other. You just can’t tell whether it’s a romantic dinner or not! They wouldn’t act all lovey dovey in a public place.

  • Courtney

    I checked to see which tabs are running the story and so far it’s just JJ, Daily Fail, the Mirror, Express. None of the other major tabs (E!, People, US Weekly) have mentioned it…yet. We’ll see soon. There’s only a handful of smaller tabs that have mentioned it. What do you think that says about the picture and the story around it?

  • Courtney

    True. They could be just friends.

  • Courtney

    That’s true but it’s also the more reason for it to possibly be a platonic dinner. Both are very private people. They certainly weren’t acting all affectionate when those pics were taken of them at the private airport in Van Nuys in September. Little to no chance of them being caught there, but they were. Private setting, not much romantic interaction judging from the pics.

  • Courtney

    Just saw a Jennifer fan account on Twitter that labeled it as a new/ old pic of Jennifer and Chris eating at a sushi bar. Means that the pic could have been taken even earlier than this month, right?

  • Me

    Lauren is in Vegas for a bachorlette party so I think it could be true about Jen being there. As for this photo, it’s definitely quite recent based on her hair. I obviously HATE this but I don’t get people’s comments about it not being romantic. It’s a snapshot plus they would have been ‘together’ for several months and people aren’t all over each other at dinner. They are staring at each other when they’re talking which I think is pretty intimate. God, I hate this so much. Jen doesn’t even like sushi so it’s all so strange. 2015 ruined on the first day.

  • Guest

    Does anyone know where the actual photo came from? It just seemed to appear on Twitter.

  • Courtney

    I make eye contact with members of the opposite sex when I talk to them. Doesn’t mean I’m dating them.

  • Denise

    I correct..the pic was taken yesterday at a sushi bar in LA. Jennifer not wearing the heels,she has not taken off her jacket during the dinner, they have not drinking wine. Not exactly a romantic dinner between two person who stay together, especially at the nye! A girl that spend a romantic dinner with her boyfriend, wears the heels and drink wine. Unless that Jennifer is not pregnant?! LOL. This is a simple meeting between 2 friends..not gallop with fantasy!

  • Me

    Not at all but you haven’t had months of stories about dating those people and been to their house and to various cities to see them. I am playing devil’s advocate but we can’t say that isn’t a romantic dinner based off this one pic.

  • Courtney

    Maybe she’s eating sushi so as not to be rude. They also don’t look all over each other. They look like they’re having a serious conversation.

  • Me

    How do you know it’s from the 30th in LA? I still think it is weird to meet up with him at all. They have two drinks that look like they could be vodka or they could be driving.

  • Denise

    The pic was taken in LA. And Jennifer ate sushi even in Atlanta during Mockingjay shoot..there was a pic.

  • Me

    Oh, I just saw the tumblr link. So they are saying it is from the 31st but she is meant to be in Vegas on the 31st? Spending NYE together, ‘romantic’ or not, is pretty major.

  • Me

    She goes because she quite likes rice and soy sauce and that was a big outing. If it was just two of them, why not pick somewhere they both could enjoy properly?

  • Courtney

    Exactly! Why would it be a romantic dinner if it was somewhere very public? Especially since both of them are private people? When she was dating Nick Hoult there were plenty of shots of them holding hands, kissing, cuddling, etc. With Jennifer and Chris, nothing.

  • Me

    I see that someone is saying Chris was in Vegas last night for a nye concert? Can anyone find the source?

  • reader

    no

  • fromanotherplanet

    His daughter probably has Hunger Games posters on her wall. YUCK! This is so gross.

  • Courtney

    If so, then where are the pics from the concert? And what’s wrong with 2 people catching up after a concert? Maybe Jen wasn’t at the concert because she didn’t want to attract attention.

  • fromanotherplanet

    And what “business” does a 20 something year old actress have with a near 50 year old musician that warrants a private dinner without any other business associates involved? DEY F UCKING. It’s not rocket science.

  • Me

    Apparently the pic was taken early evening yesterday. I just thought it would be strange, if she was in Vegas, to go for dinner with him instead of her friends who are there. And, if it is taken in LA, those sightings in Vegas must be wrong although it it is a coincidence that Lauren happens to be there. It would be strange to insist on catching up for a dinner before she left. If they spent the full night together, I find it strange they would be out for an early dinner like that and, if they had to spend it apart, why not properly celebrate together or spend some quality time with each other? It’s all so strange and horrible. :(

  • HollyGolightly

    That doesn’t make sense. Heels and drinks?You say ALL girls, women wear heels and drink wine on a date?

  • Courtney

    We’re all pretty much speculating on this. The full details aren’t known and nothing is set in stone.

  • Name

    *Business meeting* as in not looking casual, joking, etc. but serious. Certainly not looking *romantic*.
