It’s no secret that when two co-stars play lovebirds on screen, people can’t help but wonder if there’s something brewing off-screen. And that’s exactly what happened when Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth starred in a movie together. Fans were convinced that the chemistry between the two was more than just good acting, and rumors of a real-life romance began to swirl around Hollywood.
While neither of them confirmed a relationship, JLaw spilled the beans during an appearance on “Watch What Happens Live.” When host Andy Cohen asked if she and Liam had ever locked lips when the cameras weren’t rolling, Jennifer didn’t hold back. “Liam and I grew up together. Liam’s real hot. … What would you have done?” she replied with a smirk, before admitting, “Yeah, I have.”
Now, before you start picturing a passionate, all-consuming love affair between the two, there’s something you should know. Liam was dating Miley Cyrus at the time, so it’s unlikely that he and JLaw were anything more than good friends who enjoyed a steamy make-out sesh every now and then.
Speaking of friendship, Jennifer Lawrence and the third Hemsworth brother have a bond that goes beyond the occasional kiss. In fact, JLaw considers Liam to be one of her best friends, and she’s not shy about singing his praises. “I guess the thing that surprised me is that I would never expect to ever have a man [Hemsworth] this good-looking ever be my best friend,” she gushed to Nylon. “I just would never assume those things could happen, but he is. He’s the most wonderful, lovable, family-oriented, sweet, hilarious, amazing guy.”
We can’t blame Jennifer for falling under Liam’s spell. I mean, have you seen him? He’s a total heartthrob with his chiseled jawline, piercing blue eyes, and rugged good looks. And let’s not forget his charming Aussie accent – swoon! It’s no wonder JLaw couldn’t resist stealing a kiss or two from him.
But alas, it seems like Liam and Jennifer’s romance was never meant to be. Perhaps it was just a case of two attractive, single co-stars enjoying each other’s company. Or maybe it was something more, but they decided to keep it under wraps to avoid any drama. Whatever the case may be, one thing is for sure – we’ll always wonder what could have been if Jennifer and Liam had taken their relationship to the next level.
In the meantime, we’ll just have to settle for watching their on-screen chemistry in movies like “The Hunger Games” and daydreaming about what it would be like to have a best friend as hot as Liam Hemsworth. Hey, a girl can dream, can’t she?
