Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin 'very friendly' on date

JENNIFER Lawrence and Chris Martin enjoyed a "very friendly" dinner date last week.
The couple - who first started dating last summer - were spotted enjoying a quiet meal at Italian restaurant Madeo in Los Angeles on Thursday (15.01.15).

A source told PEOPLE magazine: "They looked happy and just focused on each other. They were smiling, talking and very friendly."

The 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1' actress and Coldplay frontman are said to have ordered a number of dishes and shared a dessert while sitting at a candlelit table for almost two hours after entering the eatery through the back door.

Although neither Jennifer, 24, nor Chris, 37 - who split from wife Gwyneth Paltrow last year - have confirmed their relationship publicly, they are believed to be completely on the same page when it comes to their romance.

A source said previously: "Even though they are both busy, the relationship is solid. They see each other when they can."

Jennifer - who previously dated her 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' co-star Nicholas Hoult - is said to be okay with coming second to Chris and Gwyneth's children Apple and Moses.

The source added: "Jennifer understand that the children come first with Chris and his relationship with Gwyneth is based around the family and it will always be a part of his life. Things are good between them."

Meanwhile, 42-year-old Gwyneth previously rubbished rumours she doesn't approve of her ex-husband's new love interest.

She said at the time: "I respect him as the father of my children ... It's his decision ... He wouldn't be with someone who isn't great."
