What’s the secret to Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult’s relationship? Ignoring each other, apparently.
Before you judge, it’s not as extreme as it sounds! In fact, the Hunger Games star has a pretty reasonable explanation.
“When we’re busy, we agree to mutually ignore each other. Not completely, but neither of us gets mad when the other doesn’t text back or call. Life’s super-busy. Obviously you know what they’re doing, and you trust them,” Lawrence tells Marie Claire. “We’re so young that it would almost be like if we lived in the same city, what would happen? We’d be living together. At least this way he’s in the same boat as I am: We can go out and have our own lives and know that we have each other.”
Jennifer Lawrence: relationship expert. Who knew, right?
That’s not the only interesting tidbit we picked up about Lawrence from her latest interview. The actress — who appears on the cover of the June issue of Marie Claire — also addresses her rumored feud with Kristen Stewart and theories that she planned her Academy Awards fall.
Here are the 3 most interesting things we learned from her interview:
On suffering from abdominal pains and panic attacks during the press tour for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire: “I was so freaked out, I called my publicist crying. I had to cancel Chelsea Handler. I was terrified to get on a plane to New York because I was convinced I had an ulcer that was bleeding. I went to the hospital. There was a bit of blood in my stomach, but they said it was nothing to worry about. I was like, ‘Really? Because I’m pretty worried!’”
On a conspiracy theory suggesting that her tendency to trip over her own feet at the Academy Awards is part of a devious plot to appear authentic: “I’m trying to do the right thing, waving to fans, trying to be nice, and there’s a traffic cone. The second I hit it, I was laughing, but on the inside I was like, ‘You’re fucked. They’re totally going to think this is an act…’But trust me if I was going to plan it, I would have done it at the Golden Globes or the SAGs. I would have never done it at two Oscars in a row. I watch Homeland – I’m craftier than that!”
On rumors that she’s jealous of Kristen Stewart, Nicholas Hoult’s costar in the upcoming sci-fi romance Equals: “There was something in a magazine, and I was like, ‘Oh, my God, that’s hilarious,’ because Kristen and I are friends. I actually texted her a picture of it and was like, ‘Just so you know, this is absolutely true.’”
