Just three days after filing for a divorce from Gwyneth Paltrow and it would seem that Chris Martin has already landed himself a new leading lady in the form of Gillian Anderson.
That’s right, the consciously uncoupled 38-year-old Coldplay front man has apparently consciously re-coupled (not to mention at speed) with the stunning 46-year-old actress.
According to The Sun, The Fall actress, who was already good friends with Chris, proposed they go on date now that he is a single man.
A source told the paper: “They’re an unlikely combination but there’s definitely chemistry between them.
“Chris has always been keen to keep his personal life private so, as expected, the blossoming romance is very low-key. His pals are intrigued to see if it turns into a bigger deal.”
News of the unlikely courtship may surprise fans after it was widely reported that Chris was dating 24-year-old actress Jennifer Lawrence.
Chris finally filed for divorce from wife of 12 years Gwyneth this week after announcing their amicable split a year ago.
Gillian, who has been married twice, previously admitted that getting involved with a married man or a toy boy was a ‘no go’ for her.
“To me, a married man is simply a no go. I’m not interested in younger men either,” she said.
“I suppose I might ask a man out, but I believe at this stage of my life it’s better not to manipulate the situation. If it happens, it happens. What I am sure about is that I want my next relationship to be ‘The One’.”
Just be sure not to open the eX-Files on the first date, eh guys?
