Liam Hemsworth and Jennifer Lawrence are more than just co-stars — they're BFFs who often compliment and tease each other.
However, it's also true that they once kissed, not like Katniss and Gale, but like Jennifer and Liam, when the cameras weren't rolling.
Years later, fans are curious about what happened between the main cast of The Hunger Games, especially after the release of Miley Cyrus' Blossoms, which fueled endless speculation.
Perhaps the rumors that Jennifer and Liam had a romantic relationship stemmed from the Silver Linings Playbook actress, who admitted to kissing her Hunger Games co-star when the cameras weren't rolling.
She appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in 2017 and when asked about the PDA between her and Liam, the actress was quick to admit they had indeed kissed.
Andy says: "It was recently rumored that you and Liam Hemsworth were having an affair at the Waverly Inn. Did you kiss when the cameras weren't rolling?
Jennifer responds, "Liam and I grew up together. Liam is really hot. What would you have done?" before adding, "Yeah, got it."
When the host jokes about choosing Gale, Liam's character in the film, over Peeta, the actress says, "I finally did it."
THEY’VE NEVER CONFIRMED DATING RUMORS
Jennifer is one of those Hollywood celebrities who likes to stay out of the public eye as much as possible.
Although she admitted to kissing Liam, neither of them confirmed if they were dating or in a relationship. But Jennifer has called Liam a "best friend" on more than one occasion.
Speaking of Liam, she told Nylon that she didn't expect such a "handsome" man to be her "best friend."
"I would never assume these things could happen, but they do. He's the most wonderful, sweetest, family-friendly, kindest, hilarious and amazing guy out there," a- she declared.
Liam also called Jennifer his best friend, but spoke differently about their on-screen kiss, which he found "pretty awkward".
He once told Jimmy Fallon, "If you look at it from the outside, it looks like a great picture. She's one of my best friends. I love her."
"But if we had a kissing scene, she'd make sure to eat garlic or tuna or something gross, and right before the scene she'd say, 'I haven't brushed my teeth. I would say 'cool, can't wait to get out there and try it'."
THE HUNGER GAMES ACTRESS IS HAPPILY MARRIED
Jennifer is happily married to her husband Cooke Maroney. They even recently welcomed a child together.
The couple got engaged in May 2019 and married in October of the same year. They met in 2018 through a mutual friend.
Jennifer and Cooke's son was born in February 2022. They named him Cy after legendary painter Cy Twombly.
