Last week, to much confusion, E! News reported that Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin had been dating since late June. And while the rumor has been confirmed by “multiple sources,” that doesn’t make the supposed link between the 24-year-old goofball (I mean, actress) and 37-year-old Coldplay frontman any less bizarre.
They are, of course, both newly single: Lawrence’s breakup with fellow actor Nicholas Hoult happened just this summer, while Martin’s conscious uncoupling with (ex-)wife Gwyneth Paltrow was announced in March.
So, what does Paltrow think of all this? In the new issue of Us Weekly, a source revealed the following: “Her take is, ‘Hey, he could do worse.’” It’s neither a condemnation, nor a celebration—in fact, it’s a completely neutral statement that proves Paltrow is in total Switzerland territory.
In sum: Paltrow is totally over you, dude.
