The Word: Rihanna hangs with Jennifer Lawrence

Oh man. You know how there are some celebrity friendships you just want to get inside and wear like a coat? This is definitely going to be one of those.

Rihanna ran into Jennifer Lawrence, star of “The Hunger Games” and your heart, in a Paris restaurant, and snapped this cute pic of the two of them looking like besties, which I sincerely hope they will become. “Bumped into the extraordinary Jennifer Lawrence at dinner!” Rihanna wrote.

So which of Jennifer’s movies do you think Rihanna considers “extraordinary?” She might relate to the dysfunctional relationships of “Silver Linings Playbook,” but something tells me the singer would be a big fan of a character who solves her problems by shooting them full of arrows, so “Hunger Games” is my guess.

Has the flame reignited between Jennifer and her ex-boyfriend Nicholas Hoult? The pair, who met on the set of “X-Men: First Class,” have reunited to film its sequel in Montreal. Maybe all that blue body paint and green screen work bring back romantic memories, because they’ve frequently been spotted hanging out together.

Jennifer and Nicholas went for a walk with Nicholas’ brother and nephew, and they’ve also had dinner alone in Montreal and L.A., according to the Daily Mail. But are they back on? Neither actor has released a statement, and surely Nicholas, like the rest of the world, has realized how awesome Jennifer is. Maybe he just wants to be BFFs.
