Playing Awkward? Jennifer Lawrence Is Scoping Out NYC Apartments Near Gwyneth Paltrow

It's a small world after all -- even more so for the fabulously rich and famous who seem to be attracted to the same neighborhoods.

But things could get awkward for Jennifer Lawrence if she finds a place in the Tribeca neighborhood in Manhattan, where a source tells ET the actress has been apartment hunting. The buildings she's been looking at are within walking distance of Gwyneth Paltrow's NYC apartment.

Paltrow, of course, is separated from her ex-husband Chris Martin, who struck up a relationship with Lawrence months after the couple announced their split in 2014.

Paltrow has spoken before about staying friends with her ex after their "conscious uncoupling," and has come out to support Martin at events, while the two have worked hard to maintain a cordial friendship for the sake of their children.

That being said, it wouldn't make it any less uncomfortable if Martin, Paltrow and Lawrence were to accidentally run into one another on a nearby Tribeca street corner -- although that gives us a great idea for a romantic comedy!

However, Lawrence and Martin are reportedly no longer dating. Rumors have linked the Coldplay singer to actress Kate Hudson -- who called off her engagement to Muse frontman Matt Bellamy in December -- and to Australian pop icon Kylie Minogue.

The source tells ET that despite two trips, Lawrence hasn't decided on a place yet, but that she has some specific requirements that she's looking for -- namely, a minimum of three bedrooms and underground private parking to avoid prying eyes and paparazzi.
