Watch out, Eiza Gonzalez: You might already have some competition for Liam Hemsworth’s heart. The actor was spotted snuggling with his Hunger Games co-star, Jennifer Lawrence, earlier this week.
Calm down, Gale and Katniss shippers: they aren’t hooking up in real life. Paparazzi caught the pair on the set of the third movie of Suzanne Collins’ trilogy, Mockingjay, earlier this week.
The photos only make us that much more excited for the release of Catching Fire on Nov. 22. The movie is already breaking records for ticket sales — Fandango reported that over 70 percent of its ticket sales on Tuesday were for the dystopian flick. Incredible for a movie that won’t be released for another five weeks!
As for their offscreen relationship, it’s safe to say Hemsworth and Lawrence are just friends. The Oscar winner once said that her Aussie co-star is “just as hot in real life and a real sweetheart. He’s everything that you daydream about him being,” but it seems like their relationship will always be platonic.
Besides, he’s exploring his single-and-ready-to-mingle side after his breakup with Miley Cyrus, while Lawrence seems to be back on with Nicholas Hoult. They broke off their relationship earlier this year because of household skills… or lack thereof.
“I wake up earlier in the morning when I have new sponges. That counter doesn’t even see it coming. [Hoult] would never wring them out,” she told Vogue in August. “We were in the kitchen once, and I picked up the sponge, and it was soapy and wet, and I was like, ‘See? These are the kinds of things that make me think we are never going to work.”
It seems like she’s willing to try again, though.
“Jen realized she wanted to be with him and dove back in,” a source told PerezHilton in September.
Maybe Hoult won her back with a new package of sponges?
