GWYNETH JEALOUS OF J-LAW
She trips at the Oscars, drops F-bombs and loves fast food. In short, carefree Jennifer Lawrence is everything that Gwyneth Paltrow is not, and the out-of-touch Goop guru is furious that her ex, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, has moved on with someone so, well, fun. “Gwyn knows everyone is taken with Jennifer’s charm and wit,” says an insider. “The fact that low-key Chris snagged a girl like Jen is a huge blow to her ego.”
INSIDE HER ENVY
While Chris, 37, and Jennifer, 24, have been seeing each other since June, their romance didn’t make headlines until they were spotted at a New York vineyard last month, presumably celebrating Jen’s birthday. “The setting was so romantic,” gushed a witness. “They watched the sunset together.” Prior to their winery date, the new couple had been going to extreme lengths to keep their affairs private— primarily to avoid the wrath of Gwyneth! “Chris knew she’d be upset,” says the source. Despite the fact that the Goopster has also moved on with Glee executive producer Brad Falchuk, she hates losing control over Chris. Since their March split, Gwyn has continued to demand his attention, going out to dinner and palling around in the Hamptons, in order to hold up their “happy exes” façade. So she was shocked to learn about his secret dating life. “As soon as Gwyneth found out, she called Chris and lit into him for dating someone so young,” says the source. But Jen’s age is far from the only reason Gwyn’s been huffing and puffing. She’s intimidated by the fact that Jen is not only a beautiful woman—she’s also extremely charismatic.
Although Chris initially tried to downplay his new relationship to keep the peace with his ex, insiders say he hasn’t been this happy in years, and he’s ready to be done with Gwyneth for good. The lovebirds have been spending most of their time relaxing in Chris’ homes in LA, London and New York. “Chris is really enjoying being with a woman who is so laid-back,” says the source, adding that they spend their time watching movies and eating pizza. Sorry Gwyneth, but most men will take that over yoga and kale any day!
