Jennifer Lawrence and Joel Edgerton are not dating, despite a false story claiming that the Red Sparrow co-stars are secretly a couple. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this claim. We're told it's not true.
According to the tabloid NW, Lawrence and Edgerton constantly flirted on the set of their upcoming spy thriller, but their relationship never turned romantic because the actress was dating Darren Aronofsky at the time. A so-called "insider" tells the magazine, "They totally bonded during filming and spent lots of time alone together rehearsing. It was more a friendship and a working relationship."
The questionable source says Lawrence and Edgerton's dynamic changed after she became single. "She's invited him over for dinners under the guise of discussing the promos," says the suspicious tipster. "Like every man in Holly wood, Joel thinks she's absolutely gorgeous and hugely talented, so he's completely fallen under her spell."
But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us that Lawrence and Edgerton's relationship is completely platonic. We're told the Red Sparrow co-stars aren't secretly dating, and the claim otherwise is simply made-up. Of course, the tabloids have a habit of romantically linking co-stars who aren't actually together, so we're not surprised by these bogus rumors.
It should also be noted, NW has proven to be very unreliable when it comes to printing accurate news about the actress's love life. Gossip Cop recently busted a phony article claiming that Lawrence was considering dating Johnny Depp. Only, the pair hardly know each other outside of a joint appearance on "The Graham Norton Show" in 2016.
Gossip Cop has also called out various outlets for wrongly reporting that Lawrence started dating Brad Pitt after she split from Aronofsky last year. Several untrustworthy publications have also accused the actress of being responsible for breaking up Chris Pratt's marriage to Anna Faris. Of course, all of these narratives surrounding the actress's personal life are fabricated.
Although Lawrence and Edgerton have been spending time together while promoting Red Sparrow, they aren't secretly dating. The characters played by the actor and actress in the movie happen to have a romance, but their on-screen relationship hasn't spilled over into real life. Gossip Cop can confirm that the relationship between the co-stars is nothing but friendly and professional.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
