Really though, who doesn't ignore their partner every once in a while/always? That's why people end up having affairs and, lord knows, there wouldn't be a soap opera still in existence if there weren't affairs fueled by people being ignored, so keep it up I say!

As it happens, Jennifer's form of ignoring doesn't involve repeatedly blanking the other half as you stare slack-jawed at the telly. This couple, who have been dating since 2011 after meeting on the set of X-Men: First Class four years ago, have found a way to make their long-distance relationship work when they both have busy schedules. They ignore each other.

Speaking in an interview with the new issue of America's Marie Claire, Jennifer explained: "When we're busy, we agree to mutually ignore each other. Not completely, but neither of us gets mad when the other doesn't text back or call. Life's super-busy. Obviously you know what they're doing, and you trust them. We're so young that it would almost be like if we lived in the same city, what would happen? We'd be living together. At least this way he's in the same boat as I am: We can both go out and have our own lives and know that we have each other."

The 23-year-old admits their relationship can be a struggle from time to time but she believes it's important that they lead their own separate lives.

She explained: "It's hard [when you're both working]. [But] it's important to keep your individuality when you're a couple and keep your own life."

Jennifer Lawrence re-cementing herself as the universes' 'dream girlfriend' there. 'I get to ignore you and then when we do meet up we have sex?' What a woman.
