Given what a superstar she is, it's pretty much a guarantee that the public will be all over any relationship Jennifer Lawrence has—so, admittedly, it must be nice to date someone who is totally removed from the world of Hollywood. That way, at least you only have one celebrity to deal with, not two.

In 2018, J-Law has been spotted out and about in New York City with a new man—and it's one many people don't recognize because he's not an actor like her previous boyfriends.

Her current boo Cooke Maroney is actually in the art world and represents clients including Lena Dunham's father Carroll.

Her latest partner is no exception—just a few months after breaking up with her R&B musician boyfriend Anderson East, she started dating Evan Felker, the singer for Turnpike Troubadors.

We have to admit, it's a pairing that we never would have envisioned in a million years, but they definitely seem happy together, and that's all that really matters.

Dakota Johnson is no stranger to the spotlight—after all, she grew up with celebrity parents whose relationships were in the public eye. And, Chris Martin definitely knows what it's like to date a highly public figure—in addition to being a famous musician himself, he was once married to Goop guru Gwyneth Paltrow.

She and actor Orlando Bloom have had a bit of an on-again, off-again relationship, and they've been dating again as of 2018.

The two have apparently been dating since January of this year, which means they'll be celebrating their one year anniversary in just a little over a month (provided that things continue to go well). These two haven't been in the spotlight much yet, but that could definitely change in the months to come—after all, Munn is a huge star who the paparazzi definitely follow around.

Actor Chris Pine isn't exactly the type to be splashed across the front pages of the tabloids, which is why many people are unsure about what exactly his relationship status is. And, it seems, he's been taken—and has been since around April of 2018. He was linked to fellow actress Annabelle Wallis in spring of this year when they were spotted together at Heathrow Airport, and have since been spotted at dinner together.

Apparently, these two lovebirds even took a Hawaiian vacation together at some point.

Neither has been super outspoken about their relationship, but who knows, if things get more serious they may just be more willing to get chatty about things.
