Jennifer Lawrence & Boyfriend Darren Aronofsky Reportedly Split Last Month
Jennifer Lawrence and Darren Aronofsky were just seen together at the Governors Awards in Los Angeles on November 11, so everyone thought the couple was as happy as ever. Turns out, the actress and director who started dating just over a year ago had already quietly broken up.
Multiple sources tell Entertainment Tonight that the couple that met on the Mother! movie set in 2016 actually split last month. The breakup was amicable and the two still remain good friends, which is probably why there was no awkwardness when the attended an event together a couple weeks ago.
The 27-year-old actress is known for being super private about her personal life, but opened up about how she and the 48-year-old director got together on The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast.
“I had a crush on him when he pitched to me, and that was like a year before we started rehearsing, but he was a professional, which only made it worse for me,” she explained. “We just kind of formed a friendship. He knew how I felt. He never told me how he felt. I mean, I assumed. We just formed a friendship and then the friendship turned into a partnership for the movie, once we started working. And then once the movie was done, I was like, ‘All right! You’re my boyfriend.'”
Darren always had amazing things to say about J.Law, calling her a “once-in-a-generation talent.”
He told ET back in September, “Well, I don’t know what makes her great — maybe it was her parents, maybe it was the Kentucky water. I have no idea, but she’s, like, a once-in-a-generation talent, and just a whirlwind and a hurricane and an earthquake and a thunderstorm of talent.”
There are no details about why Jennifer and Darren called it quits, or if their 20-year age difference had anything to do with the decision.
