Everything You Need To Know About J-Law's New Bodyguard

Meet Greg Lenz...


Jennifer Lawrence has done it again… She's stepped out with another very good-looking bodyguard. Last December, Justin Riblet melted hearts as he ushered JLaw through LAX, and now her latest bodyguard, Greg Lenz has sent the internet into a frenzy after photographs emerged of him carrying her adorable puppy.


Here’s what you need to know about him:

He studied architecture

By no means is Greg a brainless bodyguard. He studied architecture for four years at the University of Colorado, graduating in 2008. Although, reportedly from looking at his Linkedin profile, he didn’t take architecture up as a career.

He’s good with dogs

We assumed this, of course, after he was pictured cradling and protecting JLaw’s adorable dog Pippi from the paparazzi. A source backed up the assumption by telling the NY Post that Lenz also has a dog of his own called Tula.


He’s a model

Well, I mean, we’re not surprised. Lenz was apparently discovered by a talent agency at a mall in Denver. He went on to feature in a couple of shoots in 2008. According to a photographer that shot him, Lenz didn’t have a big ego and was 'a real person.'

He’s actually been guarding JLaw for a while

Although these pictures have only recently surfaced and caused mass-hysteria, there’s been on and off sightings of Lenz in Lawrence’s presence since 2013. He’s apparently in the backdrop of photos of Jennifer from earlier Hunger Games film sets including Catching Fire.

He likes Suits, the Beach Boys, and CrossFit

The Daily Beast reports that his facebook ‘likes’ include legal drama Suits and music from the beach boys. Obviously when you’re a bodyguard, fitness is a priority which explains the likes of CrossFit and fitness athletes Lindsey Valenzuela and Kristan Clever also being listed on his page.

'He’s the type of guy you want to be friends with'

That’s according to the photographer, Mark Stout who shot him back in his modeling days. A former colleague who worked with him at a restaurant between 2008-2010 also told the NY Post that Lenz was 'funny, down to earth and just an all-around good guy'. Good, we’d want nothing less for the man who’s protecting JLaw.

He’s married

Sorry! Lenz is married according to Us weekly. Upon further digging the Daily Beast reported that he married a lady called Allana, a physician assistant, in 2013. They met at university and their first date was seeing the James Bond film, Casino Royale in 2006.
