Gwyneth Paltrow approves of Jennifer Lawrence
Gwyneth Paltrow apparently loves the fact Jennifer Lawrence doesn't have the mindset of a groupie.
The rumour mill has gone in to overdrive recently with reports Jennifer is dating Chris Martin, whose ten-year marriage to Paltrow came to an end earlier this year.
Now sources say Paltrow, who has remained close to Martin, is pleased with his choice of partner.
"Paltrow loves that Jen has integrity, and a sense of humour, and isn't like a lot of the mindless groupies who throw themselves at Chris. She told Chris that she has a good feeling about Jen and feels as if she's someone he can trust," an insider revealed to British magazine Grazia.
Apparently Lawrence and Martin pair have grown close so rapidly, the actress will be accompanying the musician on his band's forthcoming concert tour.
"Girlfriend Jennifer Lawrence will be part of the entourage," a source told Radar Online. "She has some down time in her schedule at the moment, and is having so much fun with Chris. Chris' sense of humour has genuinely surprised her, and his band mates really like Jennifer," the insider said.
News of Paltrow and Martin's split broke in March in a post on Paltrow's website Goop titled 'Conscious Uncoupling'.
The Iron Man actress has daughter Apple, ten, and son Moses, eight, with Martin and is said to be determined to stay on good terms with him.
"Chris and Gwyneth still speak on the phone every day. It was part of their 'conscious uncoupling' agreement that they be 100 per cent open with each other, so Gwyneth knew from the start that he has been spending time with Jennifer - and told him that she was pleased he had found someone," the source added.
"Gwyneth had known for a long time that their relationship was coming to an end, so the last thing she'd do is be pretty about who he sees. She's genuinely happy for him."
Paltrow is now thought to be dating Glee co-creator Brad Falchuk, who she met through her guest appearances on the singing show.
To show Lawrence just how OK with the situation she is, Paltrow reportedly called her up for a chat.
"Gwyneth doesn't want Jen to feel uncomfortable and is well aware that she's an intimating act to follow, so she bit the bullet and picked up the phone.
"She wanted it to be a sisterly conversation rather that a big deal, and Jen played it cool, as she always does. But she was touched that Gwyneth reached out directly," the source said.
