Scarlett Johansson and Jennifer Lawrence are not feuding over their upcoming weddings, despite a false tabloid report attempting to pit the actresses against each other. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the story. We’re told there’s “no truth” to any of it.
“ScarJo vs. J-Law: Battle of the Brides” reads a headline in the latest issue of Life & Style. The accompanying article says the two stars are in a fierce competition as they prepare to walk down the aisle with their respective fiances, “Saturday Night Live” star Colin Jost and art gallery owner Cooke Maroney.
According to the outlet, Johansson and Lawrence have never liked each other and the situation is getting worse now that they’re both supposedly planning weddings in the New York area. “They’re not exactly racing each other to the altar, but I think it’s safe to say they want to outshine the other on their big days,” an alleged insider tells the magazine.
The supposed source further contends that Johansson “has always been a little envious of the roles Jen’s gotten over her” because she believes she’s more talented “and puts Jen in a lesser category.” The Avengers stars doesn’t like the fellow actress’s “over-the-top personality” either, says the unidentified tipster, adding, “She feels Jennifer is a bit of a phony.”
From there, the so-called “insider” maintains that Johansson and Lawrence “both recently viewed the same exclusive private residence in the Hamptons as a possible wedding venue.” The questionable source goes on to say that the actresses “would never want to marry at the same place,” so they’re keeping tabs on each other and “the pressure to outdo one another is huge.”
The magazine hides behind an unidentified “insider” to sell its story, but Gossip Cop checked in with Johansson’s spokesperson, who tells us, “There is no truth to this in every aspect; from the supposed feud, to looking at the same venue, to this fabricated competition. There has never been and is no ‘feud’ between the ladies, just mutual respect.”
Johansson’s rep goes on to call Life & Style‘s story “just another made-up attempt to sell magazines by continuing to perpetuate the myth that two successful women can’t get along, are in a feud or jealous or envious of each other.” The actress’s rep adds, “It is lowbrow, sexist, and simply boring.” Meanwhile, Lawrence’s spokesperson similarly confirms that the outlet’s article is fiction.
Gossip Cop busted the tabloid back in 2017 for wrongly reporting that Lawrence was planning a wedding with Darren Aronofsky. The pair split shortly after we debunked the story. And last month, the magazine’s sister publication, Star, falsely claimed Johansson and Jost were “calling it quits.” The couple announced their engagement days later. It’s clear the gossip media knows very little about either actress’s personal life, including their relationship with one another.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
