Jennifer Lawrence is the antithesis of Gwyneth Paltrow.

At least that’s what Coldplay frontman Chris Martin thinks, according to a new report courtesy of the The Sun newspaper. 

The Sun (via The Daily Mail) claims Martin, 37, and Lawrence, 24, have hit it off because they are both laid-back and like to have a good time (e.g. smoke butts and eat junk food).

A source tells the UK paper, “Jennifer is loads of fun and they can’t stop laughing when they are together. Chris feels he is dating someone who has everything he’s been missing out on in the past 11 years.”

The Silver Linings Playbook star was reportedly spotted “deep in conversation” at an after-party for Chris’ band following the group’s London concert on July 1st.

Martin split from the Iron Man star in March after 10 years of marriage. The couple announced their “conscious uncoupling” on Gwyneth’s lifestyle blog,

While Paltrow and Martin’s split has been very amicable, with some outlets even suggesting the two might reconcile, it appears the two are actually moving on. Gwyneth, 41, has allegedly been on a few dates with Glee producer Brad Falchuk, 43.

Paltrow is notorious for her strict adherence to clean living, which often extends to she and Martin’s two children, Apple, 10, and Moses, 8, and perhaps Martin finally wanted to break free from the actress’ stifling regimen.

“Jennifer doesn’t take herself too seriously and when she is not filming she just wants to hang out and have a good time,” The Sun’s source says.

E! News was the first to report the news of the budding romance between Jennifer and Chris.

The Hunger Games actress previously dated British actor Nicholas Hoult on and off for three years, but the X-Men co-stars recently ended their relationship.
