Katniss and Gale may soon be a real-life thing. A source tells Heat magazine the costars' friendship is evolving into something more romantic. "They intend on keeping things very low-key so they can both see where fate takes them," the source told Heat.
So, why now after the actors' third time together on set for the Hunger Games saga? "They've always had insane chemistry, but they've never been single at the same time before," said the source. And, that actually makes a lot of sense. "Jen and Liam have been friends for years, and she's always confided in him about the drama in her love life. She's really leaned on him during all the drama with Chris," the source told Heat.
Lawrence is recently split from Coldplay singer Chris Martin. Hemsworth has been single for about a year, following his canceled engagement to Miley Cyrus.
The most assuredly romantic aspect to this rumor, though, is what we can now refer to as #KoalaGate. The source claims he sent a giant stuffed koala bear — J Lawr's favorite animal — to Lawrence with a note that said, "Hold out for the perfect man."
Before you and the rest of Team Gale get too excited, however, remember, this maybe-relationship is completely dependent upon rumors. Wouldn't this be the best, though?
