A new report alleges that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Pt. 1co-stars, Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth, could finally be on the verge of becoming a couple in real life. (That it is unlikely untrue should do nothing to dash your dreams.)
According to The Independent, Lawrence and Hemsworth are in the beginning phases of a new relationship. “They intend on keeping things very low-key so they can both see where fate takes them,” the source said.
The source continued:
“They’ve always had insane chemistry, but they’ve never been single at the same time before. In fact, when they first met on the set of The Hunger Games, Liam’s then-fiancé Miley Cyrus flew out, possibly to keep an eye on them, I think, because she was jealous. Jen and Liam have been friends for years and she’s always confided in him about the drama in her love life. She’s really leaned on him during all the drama with Chris.”
Lawrence, of course, has been dating Coldplay frontman Chris Martin for months. They reportedly broke up — and got back together — in October, but no one knows for certain the status of their relationship.
For the sake of argument, let’s pretend that Lawrence and Martin “consciously uncoupled” and that Gatniss (Gale + Katniss) are about to embark on the kind of epic love journey they never got to experience in the books or movies. Apparently, Hemsworth tried to make his feelings for Lawrence known by
sponsoring her and sending a romantic gift into the arena giving her a stuffed koala bear with a sweet message:
“Jen started pouring her heart out about Chris and things got personal. Liam knows Jen loves koala bears so, the next day, he had an enormous stuffed toy koala sent to Jen with a note saying, ‘Hold out for the perfect man,'” the source said.
