‘I’ve been in relationships before where I am just confused - I’m never confused with him’

Jennifer Lawrence has been rumoured to be dating 48-year-old film director Darren Aronofsky for months, with the Academy Award winner being notoriously private about her relationships.

The couple met on the set of Jennifer’s upcoming film Mother!, a psychological thriller directed by Darren, and speculation has been building around the couple ever since.


In a recent interview with Vogue however, the 26-year-old actress has finally opened up about their relationship, explaining how it was only after filming for Mother! had wrapped that the couple got together.

‘We had energy,’ she explained of their instant chemistry. ‘I had energy for him. I don’t know how he felt about me.’

‘For the past year, I’ve been dealing with him as just a human,’ she continued. ‘I’ve been in relationships before where I am just confused. And I’m never confused with him.’

Never afraid to speak her mind, Jennifer also made a dig at his Ivy League education, stating, ‘I normally don’t like Harvard people, because they can’t go two minutes without mentioning that they went to Harvard.’ She was quick to point out that Darren was different however, insisting ‘he’s not like that.’

She did however go on to explain that her new beau doesn’t approve of her reality TV obsession and love for Keeping Up With The Kardashians, with the actress explaining, ‘He just finds it so vastly disappointing.’

Congratulations to these two.
