Jennifer Lawrence may be playing a secret-keeping spy in her new film Red Sparrow, but for the press tour she’s being as candid as ever.
She said the attraction was immediate, but apparently only on her side:
“He flew in, pitched me, left. The whole thing was probably an hour and a half, and then I was like, ‘He’s hot.’
I remember I was holding my dog and I shut the door and when the door shut I went, ‘Pippy that’s called sexual tension.’ He played hard to get for like nine months, maybe longer, which just killed me.”
Then, as he does, Marc Maron struck a nerve with his next couple questions:
MARC MARON: And how long did it last?
JENNIFER LAWRENCE: I mean, if we count everything, like two years. I had been saying two years for so long and he was like, ‘It’s been like, six months!’ I think two years. I mean, I was in love with him for like, two years.
MARC MARON: And then it went away?
JENNIFER LAWRENCE: No, I still love him very much.
MARC MARON: But you’re not in love?
JENNIFER LAWRENCE: Oh my god. I don’t want to talk about this anymore! I’m oversharing.
Ha! Yeah, but it’s kind of your thing!
Jen went on to tell Marc how she stays friends with all her exes, including Nicholas Hoult:
JENNIFER LAWRENCE: I have a theory. I think it’s because I’m blunt. I don’t think that you can have any sort of bad relationship with anybody if you’re just blunt. Everybody always knows how you feel at all times and there’s no lying, it’s just honesty. Everybody’s a good guy to each other. All my boyfriends have been wonderful. Nick was a great boyfriend.
MARC MARON: Did any of them break your heart?
JENNIFER LAWRENCE: No, broke other stuff. I didn’t mean it like that! [laughing] I meant like, confidence.
MARC MARON: No broken hearts though?
JENNIFER LAWRENCE: My heart breaks. Every time I go through a breakup, it’s not like my heart isn’t broken. They just never did anything to like, devastate me. They were just good people. Maybe that’s also the secret. I’m attracted to good people.
Not among those people? Brad Pitt and Chris Pratt!
In an interview with KISS FM UK, J.Law was asked about the “weirdest” rumor she’d ever heard about herself, something she asked Kim Kardashian West when she guest hosted for Jimmy Kimmel late last year. She had two, both of which she denied.
“This isn’t weird it was super flattering, but at one point I was just, like, dating Brad Pitt. Like, we were having secret rendezvous.”
And the more annoying and persistent one:
“I never had an affair with Chris Pratt on Passengers… they got a divorce like two years later and everybody was like, ‘JENNIFER LAWRENCE!’ And I was like, ‘Wha? I’m in Montreal!'”
As open as Jen is, we have to believe she’d just spill at this point. Right?
What do YOU think, Perezcious readers??
