The Silver Linings Playbook star (26) first met the Black Swan director on the set of a joint project which he spearheaded, starring Lawrence, Ed Harris, Javier Bardem and Irish actor Domhnall Gleeson.

And it looks like the pair's romance is heating up off set.

"They’ve been hanging out and are casually dating," an insider told People.

The pair were pictured enjoying a coffee date in LA earlier this week and according to sources, they are trying to "keep things low key."

"Jennifer and Darren have tried to keep things low-key and under wraps but they are really into each other," a source told The Sun.

"Recently Jennifer was working on a gruelling project and she relied on Darren for support and they were in constant contact. It seemed to show they were the real deal."

The Hunger Games star previously dated her X-Men co-star Nicholas Hoult for four years before their split in 2014 and she was last linked to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin last year.
