Jennifer Lawrence has finally opened up about her boyfriend Darren Aronofsky for the first time.
The 26-year-old actress has been dating the 48-year-old filmmaker for almost a year, after meeting on the set of upcoming horror film Mother!
In a new interview with Vogue, the Oscar winner revealed how she instantly clicked with Darren, who has son Henry with actress Rachel Weisz.
“We had energy. I had energy for him. I don’t know how he felt about me,” Jennifer said. “I’ve been in relationships before where I am just confused. And I’m never confused with him.”

“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.”
Jennifer, who has previously dated X-Men co-star Nicholas Hoult and Coldplay’s Chris Martin, plays the lead role in horror flick Mother! – and the actress admitted that she had to “go to a darker place” both physically and mentally for the role.
“When I saw the movie, I was reminded all over again how brilliant he is. For the past year, I’ve been dealing with him as just a human,” she said, speaking about Darren’s role as the director. .
“I had to go to a darker place than I’ve ever been in my life. I didn’t know if I’d be able to come out okay.
“I ended up getting on oxygen. I have oxygen tubes in my nostrils, and Darren’s like, ‘It was out of focus; we’ve got to do it again.’ And I was just like, ‘Go f*** yourself.'”
Jennifer also spoke about the gender pay gap in Hollywood – something she has been vocal about in the past.
“My thing with talking about pay equality is not – I use myself as an example, but that’s not what I’m talking about, obviously,” she explained.

“I’m not talking about actresses getting paid millions less than their male co-stars. My opinion is: You can have millions of dollars and a dream career, but if you’re not willing to stand up for what you believe, or if you see wrongdoing and don’t talk about it, then you have nothing.
“It’s the opposite of ‘Shut up and act!’ If you have a voice, use it. I don’t want to go into the grave just being like, ‘Well, I introduced the world to the Hunger Games movies and I bought a house on Coldwater! Goodnight!’
“For me, it’s worth the criticism. The more criticism I get, the more the conversation is happening,” she added.
