Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and Fifty Shades Freed star Dakota Johnson, who are apparently an item, were spotted canoodling in Vancouver on Sunday (February 18) in a very, erm, Vancouverite manner: over freshly blended smoothies at Heirloom Juice Co. (2861 Granville Street).
The Daily Mail published what looks to be phone-shot photographs of the supposed couple—who have yet to publicly confirm their relationship status—earlier today (February 20) in which the pair are cozied up at the South Granville spot, sipping on “healthy and pricey” juices, and staring lovingly into each other’s eyes. (People actually do this in real life?)
Both chose to forgo stools, with Martin instead sitting on the counter of the local juice shop like some sort of boorish swine—his butt mere centimetres away from a copy of the latest Georgia Straight, might we add.
The U.K. rag also noted that an eyewitness said the duo were “very happy together and did not hold back on the PDA”. In one photograph, Johnson’s hand is placed tenderly on her alleged beau’s lanky knee.
Johnson, who stars alongside Jamie Dornan in the Vancouver-shot Fifty Shades adaptations, has been in town since January filming Bad Times at the El Royale, an American drama-thriller that also features Chris Hemsworth, Jeff Bridges, and Jon Hamm. According to The Daily Mail, Martin made the trip to Vancouver to visit Johnson while she was taking five from work.
It’s yet to be seen whether these two will have the same effect on business at Heirloom as Kate Winslet did on that of Honey Doughnuts when she proclaimed her love for the Deep Cove shop at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, even returning to the bakery a few months later for a fix.More
