All The Guys We Forgot That Jennifer Lawrence Once Dated

It's hard to keep up with who is dating who these days in the wonderful world of Hollywood. They're kind of all over the place; breaking up, getting back together, breaking up again, having secret weddings, and so on.

But one star in particular that always happens to slip under my celebrity who's-dating-who radar is Jennifer Lawrence, and I can't be the only one.

So let's just dive right into her dating history and get this all sorted out!

As of last week, Jennifer Lawrence got engaged to Cooke Maroney.

Jennifer and Cooke reportedly started dating back in 2018. But were recently spotted cozying up together at a restaurant, and Jen had a massive rock on her wedding finger.

Cue the wedding bells!

I feel so basic for getting excited about celebrity engagements. Sue me for caring!

These two make an adorable couple, and I'm stoked to see J-Law in a wedding dress.

But before Jennifer met her Prince Charming, there was a small parade of men that came through her life.

We're all just serial dating until we find the one right?

First there was Nicholas Hoult in 2010


The two met on the set of X-Men: First Class back in 2010, started dating, and stayed together for nearly five years before breaking things off.

Their whirlwind relationship was a lot to take in.

They were the type to break up, get back together, break up again, and get back together again. It was hard to keep up with these two.

Ultimately, the on-again-off-again couple broke up due to their busy schedules.

Seeing as they both had very busy and successful acting careers, maintaining their relationship ended up being too difficult, so they went their separate ways.

Then came Chris Martin.

After Jen's breakup with Nicholas in 2014, she started dating the lead singer of Coldplay, Chris Martin, five months after his divorce from ex-wife, Gwyneth Paltrow.

They dated for four months, broke up, but were then seen on a dinner-date together.


Presumably, they were back together. They attended Harry Style's birthday party together, so you know it was real.

Then there was Darren Aronofsky in 2016.

Jennifer admitted that she was on Darren's hook for a whole nine months, while he was playing hard to get, and says that she still has love for this former flame.

BTW, ladies, let's make it a point in 2019 not to chase anybody.

Whoever you are, you're way too beautiful and smart to chase after a boy. Okurrrr!

The pair met on set of Darren's film "Mother!" in which Jennifer Lawrence played a leading role.

"I've been in relationships before where I am just confused. And I'm never confused with him," she told a source.

Jen's crush on Darren was something that manifested itself over time, until she couldn't hide it anymore!

"[I] had a crush on him when he pitched to me," she told Scott Feinberg, "and that was like a year before we started rehearsing, but he was a professional, which only made it worse for me," J-Law told Telegraph.

Next, there was (probably) Liam Hemsworth.

The pair met while filming the Hunger Games movies together, and while neither of them ever actually admitted to being together, we sensed it.

As much as I love Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth together, Jennifer and Liam would have made a fire couple.

Don't get me wrong.

I wouldn't trade Miley and Liam for the world. But I basically applaud anyone for being with Liam. Look at him, he's a catch!

Load Comments

I know I'm not the only one who thinks so.

Here's Twitter evidence that the public would have been overjoyed if Jen and Liam admitted to us and themselves, that they were together.

Load Comments

It was a major let-down finding out they weren't together.

But, that being said, I was equally, if not more happy when I found out Liam and Miley were back together, engaged, and then married.

Load Comments

It really was a public service announcement worthy rumor.

However, even after the couple was seen cozying up together on a date, they both denied their relationship being anything more than platonic.

I still like to think that they were lying, and trying to cover it up.

Load Comments

Anyways, back to Jen and Cooke's engagement, 'cause I am seriously living for it!


Yeah, I know, I'm kind of creepy. Whatever, okay? I just love, love.

The more weddings, the better!

Load Comments

How we're all feeling right now.

Jen's dating track record has been decent thus far, but there has been a lot of ups and downs, and a lot of on-again-off-again flames.

This one better be for the long-haul!

Here is everything you need to know about their relationship so far.

I know you want all the juicy details, and I'm going to give them to you.

Load Comments

They started dating just five months after Jen's split from Darren.

Girl moves on quick! But what can I say? The heart wants what it wants, when it wants it, amirite?

Load Comments

They met after being introduced to each other by Jen's best friend, and apparently she was smitten right away.


Shout out to her matchmaker BFF, she is the real MVP in this love story!

Load Comments

They seemed comfortable with each other very quickly into the relationship.


Not long after dating, a source told People that the pair had “great chemistry” and were “holding hands and laughing” together. “She is smiling like I have never seen her do with any of her previous boyfriends.”

Okay, I might have a new favorite celebrity couple. I don't know.

I hate to speak too soon. With celebs, you just never know. One minute their engaged, the next minute they're broken up saying stuff like "Thank you, next!"

But for now, they're adorable AF, and Jen looks happier than ever. Good luck to the happy couple!
