Jennifer Lawrence says gluten free is the new eating-disorder

Los Angeles - Jennifer Lawrence has risked upsetting Gwyneth Paltrow by describing gluten-free diets as "the new cool eating disorder".

Lawrence, 24, is currently dating Coldplay frontman and Paltrow's ex Chris Martin, but has hit out at one of the things closest to the 42-year-old actress' heart - gluten-free eating.

The Hunger Games star suggested the diet is a mere fad, telling Vanity Fair: "It's basically, 'I just don't eat carbs.'"

Gwyneth, however, is a big advocate of gluten-free eating, explaining her dietary decisions in her book, It's All Good.

She said: "Every single nutritionist, doctor and health-conscious person I have ever come across ... seems to concur that gluten is tough on the system and many of us are at best intolerant of it and at worst allergic to it.

"Sometimes when my family is not eating pasta, bread or processed grains like white rice, we're left with that specific hunger that comes with avoiding carbs."

Earlier this week, it was claimed Paltrow wants to spend time getting to know Lawrence.

The actress is said to be keen to introduce her to her daughter Apple, 10, and eight-year-old son Moses.
