Jennifer Lawrence Opens up About Her New Relationship

After much speculation and a plethora of paparazzi photographs, Academy Award-winning actress, Jennifer Lawrence is finally getting candid about her relationship with director, Darren Aronofsky.

As this month’s Vogue cover girl, the 26-year-old tells the publication she and the director began dating after wrapping up filming on the intense, psychological drama, Mother!

The two sparked romance rumors for over a year with paparazzi first catching the two kissing in New York City last fall.

“We had energy,” she said. “I had energy for him. I don’t know how he felt about me.”

This is the most Lawrence has ever spoken about the 48-year-old director best known for films like, Black Swan and Requiem for a Dream. In an interview with Vanity Fair last year, the Hunger Games star called him a “visionary,” but the two have remained mum of their relationship since.

Upon watching Mother!, the Oscar winner tells Vogue she was “reminded all over again how brilliant” he was at his job.

“For the past year, I’ve been dealing with him as just a human,” she says, in addition to sharing he is an “amazing father” to the child he shares with actress Rachel Weisz.

“I’ve been in relationships before where I am just confused," Lawrence continues. “And I’m never confused with him.”

While they might seem like opposites in some, not considering the age difference, Lawrence reveals that the partnership is clearly working, even if she has some qualms.

“I normally don’t like Harvard people, because they can’t go two minutes without mentioning that they went to Harvard,” she quips. “He’s not like that.”

Lawrence also admits that Aronofsky doesn’t exactly share her love for reality television, telling her he finds it “vastly disappointing.”

But while he finds that disappointing, he is equally in awe of Lawrence, telling the magazine she is a “raw natural talent,” adding that he kind of compares her to Michael Jordan.
