RadarOnline.com reports, Jennifer, who is dating her X-Men:First Class costar Nicholas Hoult, is reportedly upset with Kristen for cheating on her boyfriend Robert Pattinson and hooking up with director Rupert Sanders. She doesn't understand why she would risk ruining everything over a brief fling with a married man.
“Jennifer has a healthy rivalry with Kristen, but she thinks that the cheating scandal she got caught up in could have been avoided,” a source close to Jennifer said. “Recently, although she didn’t say Kristen’s name directly, she couldn’t resist having a subtle dig at her rival. She told a group of friends that she would never two-time Nicholas."
With an Oscar nom for the 2010 indie film Winter's Bone and hits with two big blockbuster franchises X-Men and Hunger Games, Jennifer doesn't want to do anything to damage her credibility or career and refuses to cave into the pressures of Hollywood.
"Jennifer [said] she has received attention from many older men, especially powerful movie directors in the past, and would never want to jeopardize her career by getting involved with a married man. She was clearly referring to Kristen’s liaison with Rupert," the source added.
And things aren't getting better for the rivals. Kristen recently beat out Jennifer for the lead role in the big screen adaptation of William Styron’s novel, Lie Down in Darkness, which made the Twilight actress incredibly happy.
“Kristen is obviously down about what happened with her and Robert Pattinson, but she was thrilled when she found out she beat Jennifer Lawrence to a movie role,” a source told the site. “She is insanely jealous of Jennifer, not just because she feels The Hunger Games has stolen some of Twilight’s thunder, but because everyone was talking about her as such a beautiful actress."
“Kristen has never been comfortable in her own skin and feels threatened by Jennifer’s good looks. And the thing with Jennifer is, she isn’t just attractive, she’s a talented actor. Jennifer’s a threat to Kristen, she’s only a year younger, so chances are they will continue to battle it out for the same movie roles. The pair of them are very competitive too; they won’t give up any future roles without a fight,” the source said.
