Chris Pratt's friends are not pushing him to date Passengers co-star Jennifer Lawerence in the wake of his split from Anna Faris, despite a ridiculous new tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this story.
An article in the latest issue of Star says that becauase Pratt and Lawrence had great chemistry while filming and promoting their sci-fi movie last year, his pals believe it's time to make a move on her now that he's single. A supposed "source" tells the magazine, "This is obviously a delicate situation. Jen is technically still dating Darren Aronofsky, but things between them don't seem so good. This could be Chris' chance!"
The untrustworthy outlet then goes on to bring up the false rumors about the co-stars possibly getting "cozy" while filming Passengers, before quoting its "insider" as saying, "They both tried to pass it off as good acting, but I'm not sure anyone believed them, especially not Anna." The questionable source adds, "Chris' friends are all placing bets on how long it will take before he's with Jen."
But Gossip Cop checked in with a mutual pal of ours and Pratt, who exclusively assures us the tabloid's report is "completely inaccurate." Friends of the newly separated actor aren't urging him to pursue a former co-star who's been in a relationship for nearly a year, and the magazine's claim otherwise is simply ridiculous. Unfortunately, we previously busted Star for dragging Lawrence into the picture back when Pratt and Faris were still together, so it's not a big surprise the outlet is doing so again now that they're estranged.
Gossip Cop called out the publication last year when it falsely claimed Faris was worried Pratt would cheat with Lawrence during the publicity tour for their movie. Shortly after that nonsense, we debunked the tabloid's tall tale about Pratt buying Faris a diamond ring because he felt guilty about spending so much time with Lawrence while promoting Passengers. This latest article arbitrarily linking the actor to his former co-star now that he's single is also bogus.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
