Jennifer Lawrence & Lenny Kravitz – What The Actual?!
J-law’s apparently getting close to Hollywood hottie Lenny Kravitz now, despite a 27-year age gap. Well, in a world where Hiddleswift exists, anything can happen…
News just in: Jennifer Lawrence has bagged herself a new guy. Is it her long-term on again, off again ex Nicholas Hoult? Nope. Is it some hunky rising star? No. It’s Lenny Kravitz. Yep, the 52-year-old rock god extraordinaire. Er, weird.
Or maybe not… Lenny and Jen, 25, have actually known each other for years, having met when Jen was working on the X-men franchise with his 27-year-old daughter Zoë. But now friends say the two of them have been spending a lot of time together and sparks are flying.
‘Jen and Lenny have been meeting up in secret,’ says our insider. ‘They’ve always been close but now they’re calling and texting each other nonstop. In the past month, Lenny’s flown to visit her on set in Canada, while she’s met up with him in New York.’
As well as being a pal of Zoë’s, Jen worked with Lenny on The Hunger Games films – and the rocker even helped to design the décor for her LA mansion in 2014. Lenny’s also openly admitted that his 2014 album Strut was inspired by working with the actress. You know, the one where the first track’s called Sex, followed by She’s A Beast, with a bonus track called Can’t Stop Thinkin’ ’Bout You. ‘We’re really close friends. I love her very much,’ said Lenny previously, calling the actress a ‘beautiful person’.
While some people might find it a bit weird for their dad to date a mate, according to our source, the new couple have Zoë’s blessing. Despite the 27-year age gap, the actress is apparently very understanding of the relationship. ‘Zoë’s given them the green light,’ a close pal reveals. ‘She’s not judgmental and she just wants them to be happy.’
While it might seem like an odd pairing to us, let’s not forget Jen has a thing for older guys. She dated 39-year-old Coldplay frontman Chris Martin on and off for nearly a year before it ended in August 2015. In fact, friends say Jen’s really hoping that this relationship will work out.
‘Jen and Lenny have been spending a lot of time together recently and she’s hoping that he wants to take things further,’ adds our source. ‘It’s early days and they’re playing it down, but everyone’s convinced it’s getting serious.’ After seeing that video of pant-less Lenny splitting his trousers, we can see why…
