Jennifer Lawrence wants to set the record straight. The talented actress recently appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and used the opportunity to address the rumors surrounding her alleged fling with Liam Hemsworth at the time, Liam Hemsworth was still romantically involved with Miley Cyrus.
During the show, Lawrence engaged in various discussions with Cohen, ranging from her fashion choices on the red carpet to the drama on Vanderpump Rules. However, when the game “Plead the Fifth” came up, Cohen seized the chance to ask Lawrence about the speculation surrounding Cyrus’ music video for “Flowers,” which some interpreted as a subtle jab at Lawrence due to a rumored relationship with Hemsworth.
Before Cohen could even finish his question, Lawrence promptly denied the rumors, stating, “Not true. I would love to [respond], it’s not true. She emphatically dismissed the rumors and put an end to any further discussion, stating that it was a complete falsehood.
The rumors gained traction after fans noticed that Cyrus wore a gold dress in her music video, which bore a resemblance to a dress Lawrence wore during a Hunger Games premiere where she was accompanied by Hemsworth. Additionally, during a previous appearance on Watch What Happens Live, Lawrence had admitted to sharing a kiss with Hemsworth during filming. However, Lawrence clarified that the kiss occurred years after Hemsworth and Cyrus had already broken up, making any connection between her and the music video purely coincidental.
The conversation continued as Lawrence answered another question posed by Cohen, who asked about her understanding of her film mother’s character on a scale from one to totally confused. Lawrence humorously replied, “I’m going to be honest.I had a close relationship with the director, so I had a deeper understanding of the film. So, five? Or four.” She was referring to her previous relationship with director Darren Aronofsky, which began during the filming of their movie. However, Lawrence and Aronofsky ended their relationship in November 2017.
Lightening the mood, Lawrence joked that if anyone needed tips on understanding their films, they should consider getting involved with the director. The playful remark hinted at her personal experience but also highlighted the advantage of having a close relationship with the person behind the camera.
Having taken a break from acting to focus on her personal life, Lawrence is now making a return to the film industry. She married Cooke Maroney in October 2019, and the couple has a one-year-old son named Cy. Lawrence’s appearance on Watch What Happens Live allowed her to address the rumors head-on, clarify her past relationships, and discuss her current endeavors in both her personal and professional life.
In summary, Jennifer Lawrence used her appearance on Watch What Happens Live to dismiss rumors of a fling with Liam Hemsworth while he was with Miley Cyrus. She firmly denied the speculation, labeling it as a total rumor. Lawrence also clarified the timing of her interactions with Hemsworth, emphasizing that any connection was coincidental and unrelated to Cyrus’ music video. Additionally, she playfully acknowledged her past relationship with director Darren Aronofsky while discussing her understanding of film characters. Lawrence is now focusing on her acting career once again after taking a break to start a family with her husband, Cooke Maroney.
