What we do know is that she’s great at staying friendly with former flings:

“I’m friends with all my exes, actually…I have a theory. I think it’s because I’m blunt. I don’t think that you can have any sort of bad relationship with anybody if you’re just blunt. Everybody always knows how you feel at all times and there’s no lying, it’s just honesty. Everybody’s a good guy to each other. All my boyfriends have been wonderful” (via Menshealth).

Ex: Nicholas Hoult

Dated In: 2010 – 2014

Jennifer and Nicholas’ love affair started on set in 2010 when they were filming X-Men: First Class and continued off-screen for quite a few years. Although the duo briefly split in 2013, their spark was reignited again in March 2014, but they officially ended things in August 2014 whilst filming X-Men: Days of Future Past

Following the sad breakup and wrapping up The Hunger Games saga, JLaw did reveal that she was heartbroken – “I was also in a relationship with somebody for five years and we broke up around the same time I wrapped the movies. Being 24 was this whole year of, ‘Who am I without these movies? Who am I without this man?’” 

Unlike many other celebrity exes, these two remained friends and colleagues as they’ve been acting together for over 20 years. They were even spotted chatting at the 2016 Golden Globes. We do love an amicable Hollywood breakup.

Ex: Chris Martin

Who is He? Singer
Dated In: 2014 – 2015

Jennifer and Coldplay’s frontman Chris Martin had a short-lived romance. Despite a 13-year age gap, they started dating five months after Chris’ former wife Gwenyth Paltrow filed for divorce, but broke up just four months after they started dating.

The musician and actress rekindled their romance in December 2014 and attended a few flash events, went on L.A dates and traveled together, but JLaw and Martin reportedly broke up for good in August 2015.

This was probably Jennifer’s most-talked about love story, but sadly, it didn’t last long enough to tell the tale.

Rumored Ex: Bradley Cooper

Who is He? Actor
Dated In: 2015

Before everyone had hopes for a Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga romance, they were dreaming of a love affair between the actor and Jennifer Lawrence herself. The pair worked on a number of films together, including the romance flick Silver Linings Playbook, when rumors started to fly that they were a little more than friends. 

JLaw stated that Bradley “took her breath away” whilst filming (during her Critics Choice Award acceptance speech), and he even admitted that he feels “very safe” with her (Nightline in 2015), however, during an interview with Howard Stern, Cooper confirmed that “BradLaw” (as fans dubbed them) have a platonic relationship and are nothing more than friends – “It just didn’t happen…it’s not the way we are together.”

Rumored Ex: Chris Pratt

Jennifer was rumored to be dating her Passenger co-star Chris Pratt, however, in late 2018 she finally set the record straight during an interview with Kiss FM. When asked what the most ridiculous rumor she’s heard about herself is, she said, “the one of me dating Chris Pratt…I never had an affair with Chris Pratt on Passengers“.

After meeting on-set for the film Mother!, the actress and film director started dating, appearing really into each other despite their 22-year age gap. Spotted having lunch together and packing in on some PDA in NYC, just a short year later, the couple decided to call it quits.

Despite their breakup, Jennifer has no hard feelings against her ex-boyfriend and still speaks highly of him, “I still love him very much,” the popular star said during a February 2018 podcast interview.

Just when you thought Brad Pitt already had enough ‘Jennifers’ to deal with, this rumored relationship began to take storm in 2017. Despite never even acted together, JLaw and Brad were said to have had a fling.

Jennifer was quick to debunk the rumors, though, as she had just split from Darren –  “No, I’ve met him once in like 2013, so it was very random,” she said. “But, I also wasn’t like, in a huge hurry to debunk it.”

Jennifer caught the tabloids’ interest when she was spotted in 2018 with an unknown man who was soon discovered to be a New York art director. After attending movie premieres and sports games together, a fancy ring was spotted on JLaw’s finger, confirming that she was engaged to so-called Cooke Maroney just a short year after meeting. 

Jennifer Lawrence and Cooke Maroney finally married in a low-key ceremony in October 2019 in Rhode Island. Fast-forward to 2021 and JLaw stunned the world again, confirming that she was pregnant with her first child.

When asked why she chose to marry Maroney, JLaw admitted, “I don’t know, I started with the basics: ‘How do I feel? Is he nice? Is he kind? It’s just – this is the one. I know that sounds really stupid but he’s just, he’s…you know. He’s the greatest person I’ve ever met, so I feel very honored to become a Maroney.”

After a few failed relationships with famous actors and musicians in this timeline, the trending celeb has found her happily ever after with a non-A-lister and we couldn’t be happier for her.
