Rumor has it that Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Evans are dating.
A source told Life & Style in its February issue that the “Hunger Games” actress has just started seeing the “Captain America” star.
“It’s very new,” a source exclusively told the magazine. “They just started seeing each other a couple of weeks ago. Only their closest friends know.”
This is good news for the 25-year-old actress who broke up with Coldplay lead vocalist Chris Martin last year. According to Hollywood Life, her “Passengers” co-star Chris Pratt could be the one responsible for her and Evans to hook up. Pratt is said to have gotten close to “The Avengers” actor after they had a great time at the Super Bowl challenge last year.
Lawrence’s famous BFF Amy Schumer is also reportedly supportive of her new romance, with the source saying, “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.”
“They’ve only gone on two dates so far, but they have been texting each other and talking on the phone,” the source dished out on Lawrence and Evans’ rumored hot new thing. “They even had a pizza and movie date at Jen’s place.”
In October, it was reported that 34-year-old Evans and actress Minka Kelly, a couple since 2007, have broken up because of their busy work schedules.
This means there could be something really interesting to look forward to at the Oscars red carpet on Feb. 28, or the after-party. Lawrence is once again nominated for Actress in a Leading Role for “Joy,” her semi-biographical movie with Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro.
This is her fourth Oscar nomination after she was first nominated for Actress in a Leading Role for “Winter’s Bone” in 2010. She won the Academy award for “Silver Linings Playbook” in 2012 and got nominated for Actress in a Supporting Role for “American Hustle” in 2013.
