Jennifer Lawrence opened up for the first time about her boyfriend Darren Aronofsky, in the September issue of Vogue. The couple met during the filming of ‘Mother!’ which comes to theatres this fall.
The actress also discussed less exciting news such as the 2014 leaking of her pictures and the critics to her recent film ‘Passengers.’
Head over heels for Darren Aronofsky
In celebration of its 125th anniversary, the latest issue of Vogue will feature an exclusive interview with Jennifer Lawrence.
The magazine commission four artists, Bruce Weber, Annie Leibovitz, Inez and Vinoodh, to create the star’s look, which ranged from lavish photo shoots to a fine art painting.
In the interview, Lawrence, who will next be seen in Darren Aronofsky’s psychological thriller, Mother!, gushed about her new boyfriend, who coincidentally directed her in the film.
The actress praised her new beau’s talent and expressed how impressed she’s with how Aronofsky helmed the film.
“When I saw the movie, I was reminded all over again how brilliant he is,” she said.
Lawrence and Aronofsky have a lot of differences, from their 22-year age gap to their interests, but their tandem works, especially because Aronofsky is a down-to-earth and humble person.
“I normally don’t like Harvard people, because they can’t go two minutes without mentioning that they went to Harvard. He’s not like that.”
The pair started dating once the shooting of ‘Mother!‘ was done, and has been inseparable since. According to friends, things are serious and keep heating up.
As for Jennifer, she’s quite happy with her new beau.
“I’ve been in relationships before where I am just confused. And I’m never confused with him,” she said.
Privacy and space romantic movies
During the interview, Jennifer made a reference to the leak of her private photos in 2014.
“It’s scary when you feel the whole world judges you,” she says.
“I think people saw (the hacking) for what it was, which was a sex crime, but that feeling, I haven’t been able to get rid of it. Having your privacy violated constantly isn’t a problem if you’re perfect.”
Lawrence was part of a large-scale attack on the iCloud accounts of celebrities, after which almost 500 private pictures were circulated online.
In March 2016, 36-year-old Pennsylvania resident Ryan Collins agreed to plead guilty resulting in an 18-month sentence.
The Oscar winner also discussed the vitriolic reaction to her space romance movie ‘Passengers‘, which was met with dire reviews upon its release last December, and claims that its allegedly romantic plot was misogynistic and vaguely creepy.
“I’m disappointed in myself that I didn’t spot it,” she said.
“I thought the script was beautiful—it was this tainted, complicated love story. It definitely wasn’t a failure,” she added.
“I’m not embarrassed by it by any means. There was just stuff that I wished I’d looked into deeper before jumping on.”
