Love is in the air again for Lawrence
J Law is in love, or at least looks like it. "The Hunger Games" star has been quietly dating a dashing New York art gallerist named Cooke Maroney.
Mystery man Maroney works as a director at New York's venerable Gladstone Gallery, which reps artists including Lena Dunham's dad, Carroll Dunham, as well as Richard Prince, Anish Kapoor, Ugo Rondinone and Bjork's ex, Matthew Barney. We hear that Lawrence and Maroney were introduced by J Law's BFF, Laura Simpson.
A source told Page Six of Lawrence and her new beau: "They met through Jen's friend Laura … The relationship has been going on a few weeks. But they have been very private and careful not to be seen together."
Lawrence recently split from director Darren Aronofsky in November because, sources told Page Six, the star, 27, and the director, 49, were "at different places in their lives."
Sources say the 27-year-old actress was spotted enjoying a romantic dinner in New York City with her rumored new boyfriend. According to the source, the two dined at Frenchette in downtown Manhattan with another couple.
"They [were] super cuddly throughout dinner -- very affectionate and comfortable with each other," the source says of Lawrence and her art gallerist beau. "She's really happy. She has nothing to hide."
