Everyone seems fascinated by Jennifer Lawrence's love life, including New York Times writer Maureen Dowd, who asked JLaw about her split from Coldplay's Chris Martin during a TimesTalk.

"This is the problem with press," Jennifer answered, bringing a proud tear to the eye of single people everywhere. "When you're talking and hanging out with somebody, it's very different when it's written. I'm not a lonely person. I never feel lonely."

She continued her defense of the single life, saying "It's not a sad thing to be alone. I think what I was trying to get across was that I don't feel a lack of something not being in a relationship. I don't feel like there is an emotional void to be filled."

A true "Yas Queen" moment if there ever was one.

Meanwhile, David O. Russell (who directed Jennifer in Joy) spoke about how hard it is for his muse to find someone who isn't threatened by her success. "It's the contradiction. You yourself are powerful, but you want to be with somebody who is also powerful that you can look up to. But to find someone who can do that but also respect your power and not be threatened by it, that takes a very special thing."

Which brings us to Larry David. Apparently, the 68-year-old comedian is the lucky man Jennifer has "so many sexual and boyfriend, marriage feelings for." So, um. Do with that information what you will. We'll be over here toasting JLaw as a role model for single ladies everywhere.
