Academy Award-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence is rumoured to be dating Chris Evans. The Hunger Games star's best friend, Amy Schumer, apparently played Cupid between them.

"It's very new," an alleged source told Life & Style magazine, according to Hollywood Life. "They just started seeing each other a couple of weeks ago. Only their closest friends know."

"Amy had actually been pushing Jen to date him, telling her how hot Chris is and how crazy she'd be if she didn't go for it," the insider added.

"They've only gone on two dates so far, but they have been texting each other and talking on the phone," the source continued. "They even had a pizza and movie date at Jen's place."

During an interview with Vogue magazine, the 25-year-old actress, who had previously dated Nicholas Hoult and Chris Martin, talked about marriage. She said: "I can't wait to be married. I feel like if I find that one person who I want to spend the rest of my life with, who I want to be the father of my children, that I would absolutely not f**k it up. But I'm also not banking on that."

Adding on, Lawrence admitted that she has trouble finding a date. She said: "No one ever asks me out. I am lonely every Saturday night. Guys are so mean to me. I know where it's coming from, I know they're trying to establish dominance, but it hurts my feelings. I'm just a girl who wants you to be nice to me. I am straight as an arrow. I feel like I need to meet a guy, with all due respect, who has been living in Baghdad for five years who has no idea who I am."
