Rumors have been swirling that Jennifer Lawrence and Brad Pitt are dating, and last night during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, the actress joked about the possibility of a romance with the 53-year-old Fight Club star.
“No, I’ve met him once in like 2013, so it was very random,” Lawrence, 27, said of the dating rumor. “But, I also wasn’t like, in a huge hurry to debunk it!”
Kate Hudson had a similar response back in November when tabloids linked her to Pitt. She told Cohen at the time that it was the craziest rumor ever, and there was absolutely no truth to it. She added that she hadn’t seen Pitt in about four years, but it was an awesome rumor and she kind of liked it.
“I was like ‘Ok, fine. We’re having twins!’” joked Hudson.
It seems even A-list actresses enjoy the idea of dating the father of six.
According to US Weekly, even her brother, Oliver Hudson, got in on the joke, too, by posting on Instagram a list of reasons he was displeased with Pitt. They included him drinking out of the carton, keeping the door open when he’s taking a dump, calling him brother, and driving a wedge between Hudson and his real brother Wyatt who won’t speak to him anymore.
As for Lawrence, she split from boyfriend Darren Aronofsky last fall. The Oscar winner told Cohen that she was really sad after the breakup, and she told her friend Amy Schumer all about it.
Then, the next day, Schumer sent her a bouquet of flowers with a note that said, “I’m sorry to hear you are going to die alone. Love, Amy.”
Lawrence is currently making the talk show rounds while promoting her newest film Red Sparrow, and she revealed on Ellen this week that she has an alter ego that comes out when she drinks rum. So, of course, DeGeneres brought out a tray of rum cocktails and asked Lawrence a bunch of questions.
The actress confessed that her drunk alter ego likes to put her life in danger, and one time she jumped into shark-infested water while on vacation. She added that her name is Gail and she has a heart of gold.
Then, DeGeneres asked if Gail was the same person who attended the Red Sparrow New York premiere while projecting a photo from the event of a wide-eyed Lawrence that made her cringe and run from the audience.
She said that was another girl that she just met the other night, but admitted that she was drunk at the premiere but tried to pose for pictures with a sober face. But, she ended up humiliating herself.
DeGeneres quipped back, “It probably would have been better to just pose drunk.” Catch Jennifer Lawrence in Red Sparrow in theaters now.
