Jennifer Lawrence only recently announced that she and her boyfriend of two years, director Darren Aronofsky, have called it quits. But the celebrity rumor mill waits for no one. We are already seeing buzz of potential new suitors cropping up in different corners of the internet. The first rumor? Brad Pitt. The second? Joel Edgerton. So, what’s going on? Is Jennifer Lawrence dating anyone?
Turns out, the answer is no. While addressing questions about herself online with GQ, Lawrence shot down the Pitt rumors — but not without a small pang of sadness. To the question, “Are Brad Pitt and Jennifer Lawrence dating?” she responded, “No, but I’m not super excited to shut that rumor down.” Ha.
And for Edgerton? Well, when a fan asked how he could get a date with her, she said, “Honestly, just ask me. I have not been touched by a man in a very long time.” Well, then! Lawrence is single. Copy that.
It’s very possible that Lawrence is still in the grieving stage of her breakup. During an interview with Marc Maron, Lawrence refused to say one way or the other whether she was fully over Aronofsky.
Lawrence: “I mean, I was in love with him for, like, two years.”
Maron: “And then it went away?”
Lawrence: “No, I still love him very much.”
Maron: “But, you’re not in love?”
Lawrence: “Oh, my god. I don’t want to talk about this anymore! I’m oversharing.”
Agh! Curse our bleeding hearts! She needs a hug. Or a drink. Or both.
Luckily, the Red Sparrow star has friends like Amy Schumer to keep her laughing. Lawrence told Andy Cohen that, after learning of her break-up, the comedian sent her a bouquet of flowers and a note that said, “I’m so sorry to hear you’re gonna die alone. Love, Amy.” We’re crying.
Lawrence might be a little too busy these days for a relationship anyway.
She’s reportedly working on a docu-series about the #MeToo movement with former E! News host Catt Sadler. Lawrence is also partnering with the non-profit Represent.Us to get young people more jazzed about politics. Amazing.
So, is Jennifer Lawrence dating anyone? That’s a no.
What cute, creative genius is she going to end up with next? Maybe herself, at least for now. Or, who knows, she could end up with that guy from the internet who wanted advice on how to ask her out. J. Law is a wild card, and only time will tell.
