Those who love Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper's on-screen chemistry have plenty of films to choose from. The A-listers both costarred in David O. Russell's 2012 film Silver Linings Playbook, and the 2013 hit American Hustle. With their next project Serena coming out on Video on Demand, Lawrence, 24, and Cooper, 40, attended the Cinema Society and Dior Beauty hosted screening of the film in NYC on Saturday March 21. Cooper wore a Thom Sweeney suit while Lawrence wore a dress by Dior Haute Couture.
"Honestly, it's just happenstance," Cooper said of working so often with Lawrence. "We both got cast in Silver Linings, and she was going to this other movie and the role was open and so that worked out."
The party took place at the Top of the Standard where guests sipped Belvedere cocktails — named Mountain Moonshine and Pemberton's Punch, in keeping with the plot of the film.
After their chemistry in Silver Linings Playbook proved to be potent — the film earned Cooper an Oscar nomination and Lawrence a win — they decided to keep it up.
"I respect her so much as a professional, as an actor, and I think she's the best there is," the newly single actor said. "I just learn from her. You always want to work with people who are better than you."
"And I feel the same way about him," Lawrence added. And though they both cop to being each other's work spouses, the Dior spokesmodel assured Us that there is "no sex!" in their relationship.
Cooper and model Suki Waterhouse recently split after two years of dating, and Lawrence is currently in an on-off romance with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.
One thing they do share?
"We're both two of the biggest eaters in Hollywood!" Lawrence admitted.
