Is 25-year-old Jennifer Lawrence dating 47-year-old Darren Aronofsky?

wenn23573833

Back in January, Jennifer Lawrence was confirmed for a role in Darren Aronofsky’s next film, which is still untitled. The film is about “a couple whose relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence.” Aronofsky has written the script and he will direct it too. The film is either filming already, or it will be soon. Aronofsky was famously Rachel Weisz’s partner and baby-daddy for years, until she dumped him and married Daniel Craig. He then began seeing a Canadian woman named Brandi-Ann Milbradt, although I think that ended a few years back, maybe? I can’t find anything about her recently. And Jennifer Lawrence has been single-ish since her breakup with Chris Martin, although I think it’s more than possible that she went on some dates with Aziz Ansari. So… two single people, on a film set. What could go wrong?

Jennifer Lawrence is Darren Araonofsky’s leading lady – in more ways than one! A source tells In Touch that J-Law, 25, is secretly dating the 47-year-old director, an Oscar nominee who has a son with his ex Rachel Weisz.

“It started when they were in early discussions about the project. They began flirting, and soon they were hooking up. Now it’s getting serious,” says the source, adding that everyone on the set of the film (which is currently untitled) is buzzing about the romance.

“Jennifer and Darren think they’re being sneaky, but it’s all anyone can talk about!”

Even though it’s In Touch, it would not surprise me if this was true. Aronofsky has a thing for his leading ladies, and there were always rumors that even while he was with Rachel Weisz, he had a thing with at least one other actress. I have no idea if that’s true, let me be clear. But there were always whispers. As for Jennifer… I feel like she settles sometimes? Not with Nicholas Hoult, obviously, because he’s adorable and I think they genuinely loved each other. But I think J-Law gets lonely and she just goes for whomever is available. Oh, and it also wouldn’t surprise me if 25-year-old J-Law had a thing with a 47-year-old director. I’m honestly surprised that hasn’t happened already.

    Hmm, that would be disappointing if it were true.

  2. Karen says:

    Hopefully just speculation.

    He’s not even a hot 47. Maybe a good personality? Although Rachel Weisz jumped ship for the curmudgeon Daniel Craig so who knows.

  3. Elisa the I. says:

    He looks like budget Christian Bale.
    Her street style is atrocious.

  4. Gisy says:

    she’s about to become a cliché. Don’t date the director please

  5. MousyB says:

    Isnt aziz in a serious relationship with that chef? He raved about her in his book. Pretty sure she and aziz are just friends. As for this guy, if they are “dating” maybe its just casual fun? I doubt theyll be serious or anything

  6. Miss V says:

    She really has the worst style. Hopefully this is just a rumor. He’s worse than Chris Martin.

  7. Pepper says:

    I thought he was still married.

    She doesn’t really seem like the kind of person who would care if someone was married though. Stick it to all those pretty girls, I guess….

    She really needs a new stylist/ make-up artist. She looks absolutely terrible 95% of the time.

  8. als says:

    Must be great to be so young, rich, so desirable and with so many options
    Some people do have perfect lives. I hope she enjoys it.

  9. Margo S. says:

    I don’t like lawrence. She seems like such an ass.

  10. Talie says:

    I’ll give her this…she has no pattern!

  11. roxane says:

    This. I know she is an adult but every times we witness this actress/director situation it seems cliché, like the realisation of a director fantazy.

  12. anniefannie says:

    I have sympathy for Lawrence because at her age I didn’t know what I wanted either and kind knocked around and tried on differents kinds of men to see what fit and I think that’s what’s going on here. But, here’s hoping she not the sort to marry til she figures it out!

    • poppy says:

      ITA and think it isn’t necessarily a bad look for a young woman but it is a very bad look for the older of the pair.
      the younger partner, like young people should, might date around and explore options, it could be naïveté, maybe daddy/mommy issues, etc. typical youth stuff.
      the older partner appears insecure, borderline exploitative depending on the age gap, experiencing a life crisis, etc.

      this guy has a nasty pattern developing. he will be dating ladies JL’s age now when he is 78.

    • Redgrl says:

      Really good point, Anniefannie!

  13. lucy2 says:

    I could see her dating an older guy again, but maybe not that much older. And not the director while you’re working with him! Eh, probably not true anyway.

  14. Nancy says:

    These twenty year age differences seem to be a trend now, for both genders. Trends never last long.

  15. CoKatie says:

    Seriously, what is going on with all the age disparity romances these days?! What were they called in the old days … May September Romance? Yikes, I’m sounding like my Mom now!

  16. Don't kill me I'm French says:

    Usually Aronofsky dates a brunette.

  17. Lama Bean says:

    For a second I thought Kaiser was throwing slight shade and suggesting that she had a thing with David O. Russell, but then I realized he’s well over 50.

  18. Esther says:

    Jennifer only dates hot guys and said that good looks are part of what she is looking for. no way is she dating that old ugly man. certainly not hooking up, she hooks up with dumb hot guys like Liam Hemsworth.

  19. Alex says:

    I hate rumors like these because they all come from the place that women can only get leading roles through a casting couch and that its also impossible for any woman in Hollywood to be single. Its InTouch so I don’t believe it mostly because they are pretty much on the bottom of the tab barrel. Just ick

  20. CornyBlue says:

    Darren Aronofsky looks like Louise CK. I never knew what he looked like. Hopefully the fim is excellent. he needs to be good again.

  21. perplexed says:

    Isn’t Portman sort of his go-to actress? Arronofsky seems to go that extra mile for her.I’d worry if I were her. Jennifer Lawrence might get her parts.

  22. Bee says:

    The movie hasn’t started filming yet so any reports about the set buzzing about the affair are false.

  23. PHD Gossip says:

    Can we note for the record that Aleph Portman (Natalie’s baby that was conceived during the filming of Black Swan) looks exactly like director Aronofsky…..
    That belongs in the story.

  24.  SG says:

    If this is true I’ll be disappointed.

    I saw Aronofsky speak in Toronto last year and he was a pompous ass who spoke down to the interviewer, a man much more knowledgeable, clever, and charming than Aronofsky. It made the experience awkward, and seemed, to me, to reveal his character.

  25. kri says:

    The age thing doesn’t bother me. His smug douche face on the other hand…

  26. Bobafelty says:

    I think dating people with kids is a huge deal. Don’t waste your time dating someone if you’re not prepared to be a stepmom. She dated C Martin and this guy, each with 2kids. Having seen my friends kids meet a revolving door of the exhusbands new girlfriends, I now know how much that can affect them

    • qwerty says:

      That’s on the fathers, not her.

    • nina says:

      Some people seem to have a very old fashioned way of looking at stepmoms these days….I have a friend who is a “stepmom” but she acts more like a friend to the kids and literally does no parenting at all. She does not pay any bills, she does not drive them anywhere, clean after them or do their laundry or prepare meals for them, or spend a lot of time with them (he has them 40% of the time), heck she barely sees them and when he has them she goes to the spa or visit her own family and friends.
      She does not discipline them and she does not invest a lot emotionally in them. And it works for them all.
      There are no rules and the days of so called stepmothers dropping everything and being second mommy (without the benefits) are pretty much over.

  27. Muchlu says:

    It isn’t a new thing for JLaw to hook up with her director/producer who is much older than her.

  28. lila fowler says:

    I thought that he had a serious girlfriend. Blech. Does she tower over him? He’s a wee little thing.

  29. Magnoliarose says:

    I think this would be a mistake on her part. Not because of age so much as creating these overly intimate relationships with her directors. Gushing about DOR and maybe him. Hmmm it makes me wonder about her if this is indeed true.

  30. Nicole says:

    There’s no outrage because its an unsubstantiated rumor in a crap tab. I’m seriously rolling my eyes at this

  31. artpunk44 says:

    As RuPaul says “Oh no she better don’t.” Girl, no. I hope there is no truth to this.

  32. Leah says:

    I think its difficult for her to date. I am roughly the same age and sometimes i find guys my age very immature. I can imagine if you’re as successful as she is you’d intimidate a lot of 25 year old guys. There are very few 25 year old guys who are as successful as she is in hollywood so as such, i can’t totally see how she would feel more comfortable with an older more established guy. Maybe she should try dating someone outside the business but then again that probably presents its own problems.

    • Truthful says:

      In her business everybody is intimidating, even she couldn’t find a 25 years old her peer, I am sure there is no shortage of 30/32 yrs old with a lot of success in her industry…

      Except they would have to be into crass and vulgar girls…I am sure Brie Larson hasn’t that kind of problem…same age,excellent actress but in another league in term of class and maturity

      • Carla says:

        Lawrence is the biggest female movie star in the world, a completely different league than Larson

      • Truthful says:

        @Carla: nope. The most paid: YES.

        The biggest female movie star in the world… far from it as it doesn’t depend from the annual gross your movies have made.

        Melissa Mc Carthy is number 3… but I am sure people would be generally more impressed by Angelina Jolie who is n8

        Kirsten stewart is number 9… and I am sure a lot of people don’t even put her under the movie star tag.

        most paid actress of the years is not the biggest movie star… something not even a movie star.

        Jennifer Lawrence get handsomely paid, but she is vulgar, crass, uneducated, and a bit bratty… Brie Larson, Mia Wasikowska, Saoirse Ronan, Emma Stone, and a lot more fall way much better under the “movie star” categories, with the good dose of talent and glamour.

        I am sure is Scarjo can be unimpressive to guys… JLaw can be too ;D…or maybe its an other thing… maybe…

      • Leah says:

        @truthful
        But even the guys who are 30/32? Who are on her level? I mean hollywood actors are famously competitive and id imagine a lot of actors 25-30 would feel intimated by her success. Or they might try and ride her coattail.
        Brie Larson has been with her boyfriend for many years long before she was famous so that isn’t comparable. She’s not having to go out and date after her fame which is what JLaw has to do. I am just saying older established people might seem more attractive right now because these guys have had a certain level of success and arent going to be as easily intimated nor are they likely to want to exploit her fame.

        Your second post just tells me that you have a strong dislike for her which is sort of beside the point. I am talking about how difficult it is going to be for someone in her position to date.

      • Martha says:

        @Thruthful
        It’s the media (Forbes, Time, Guardian, Vulture, Hollywood Reporter etc..) that say Lawrence is the biggest female movie star in the world. You must be impartial even if you don’t like her (and Brie Larson, Mia Wasikowska, Saoirse Ronan aren’t movie stars even you like them)

      • Jules says:

        @Thruthfull
        Larson, Wasikowska, Ronan aren’t movie star. Lawrence is in a different league

      • Mika says:

        @Thrutfull
        You dislike Lawrence so much that you can’t see the reality. She’s the biggest female movie star, a star much bigger than Ronan, Larson or Wasikowska

    • Izzy says:

      I can understand jennifer wanting someone closer to her league. A 47 year old man with children and that coldplay douche are not. There are plenty of successful young men in L.A she could be with. Not all men at 25 are immature. My boyfriend is younger than me (2 years) and is far more mature than myself.

      Saying that young men are immature seems like an excuse society makes so men can date younger women. “Oh men are immature, that’s why a 26 year old is dating a 19 year old etc.”I call bs and gross.

      • Marianne says:

        I don’t think anyone is saying that ALL 25 year old men are immature, but perhaps she has come across a lot immature men that age and so far has found older guys aren’t . Just because your situation is different doesn’t mean its the same for everyone else.

  33. Bridget says:

    So what if she is? She’s an adult, he’s an adult.

  34. Ann says:

    Well, from a former young’um to the young ladies on here: don’t waste your 20s, 30s, 40s or even 50s on much older men. Totally not worth it.

    • nina says:

      Really? Because as a twenty something I can tell you most young MEN act like little immature boys and many can’t even afford to take you out on a proper date lol
      I’d rather be an old man’s darling and all that….nothing wrong with wanting to be spoiled and have an older gent take care of you. I don’t want to suppress my femininity which I find myself doing alot with the guys my age.

      • Truthful says:

        @Nina: I strongly desagree, maturity and age are not automatically linked.

        As a 20 something myself I tend to side-eye men who are trying to date me, they only show that maturity isn’t a priority for them…so maybe they aren’t that mature themselves, for not being so keen on that.

        Plus my boyfriend who is 2 years older than me is the perfect example of a mature young men, so are a lot of my friends, my brother and most men my age I know.

        The immature young men is kind of an imaginary and dismissive cliché toward young men , and a quite unfair and untrue one . (Daniel Radcliffe Vs Leo di caprio anyone?)

        The key words in your comment are “take care of you”… those words are important because to me they depart from “sharing” which is at the core of a relationship, to me.

        I don’t want to be taken care of… I want to share a relationship, and for that men my age are perfect…

        “nothing wrong with wanting to be spoiled and have an older gent take care of you”

        No nothing wrong… but is it still a real and relationship with true feelings and sharing ?….

        Young women have jobs now, I can pay for my Céline’s and Louis Vuitton’s…but love and a deep connection are priceless. No old man can buy me that

      • nina says:

        For me it’s not the age itself that attracts me to older men, it’s a generation that is no longer…I like men in generation X and older because they generally have qualities I like in men. I like sort of traditionally masculine men or men with that energy, it’s hard to explain but when you are around them your natural femininity comes out.
        If I found those same qualities in young men my own age that would obviously be perfect but those men are rare today.
        And yes I want a man to take care of me, I don’t want a fifty fifty relationship, that’s the difference here. I don’t want to grow with a man, I want him to be ahead of me, be smarter, stronger, wiser…you get the picture. I don’t want to share responsibility.
        It’s not for everyone but those are the qualities I like and want in a man.
        To each her own! :)

      • Ann says:

        Hey, if you want to sell yourself to the highest (much older) bidder, nothing wrong with it if that’s your thing.

      • Truthful says:

        @Nina: same as Ann (you go Ann)…. but then again I wasn’t talking about a bidder….

        My natural feminity (LOL for the backward expression… as many many many studies have proven now in 2016 that such a thing doesn’t even exist) always comes out … and it’s not being less wise, less smart and less strong…

        and you know what whenever I get a present from my BF IT IS a present , not a compensation…

        As you said to each their own… but then don’t put down younger men all into the same category…. and just because they are (wisely) reluctant to see a relationship as a fund transfer…

      • CornyBlue says:

        Maybe it is because men in their 20s are also figuring life out and are also in new jobs and dont have much money ? You might not be into that but what a weird thing to hold against them .

      • nina says:

        Well, yes of course, I’m just saying I’m not attracted to that.
        It’s no one’s fault, it’s just what attracts me on a primal level, it’s not logical or fair.
        Our generation is called the peter pan-boomerang generation for a reason and that’s because the economy sucks and it takes longer to get from point a to point b, among other things.

      • Truthful says:

        @Nina:

        “Our generation is called the peter pan-boomerang generation” Whaaaaat?????? LOL

        Ok Nina we got it, what attracts you is the material comfort that a man can provide ok…. but please stop putting all 20s girls into that sad sad category…As it is far from the behavior observed within this generation.
        For the first time in history women in the 20s are in some fields getting paid better than men… so let’s not generalize on this generation who is proving that female are far from wanting a bill for the day to “buy something pretty”…

        Marks and statistics are falling far far away from your generalizations: younger women tend to date their age, to favor a job that passionate them and to achieve their goals… OECD statistics are the gem ! ;)

        Your body your choice… but far far away from this ” peter pan-boomerang ” (LOL super hard on this one ) generation” ;) ….

      • Bridget says:

        @Nina: so what you’re hoping for is a guy in his 30s who is still single, has money, and is into the idea of a partner who is that into ‘traditional’ male female roles. Good luck. Because those are the guys who trade in for a younger model.

      • anna says:

        Agreed. I actually dated the best 20 something guys when I was in my 20s. I bummed my head wasnt in the game though (depression) cause now in my 30s they are like that you described. Also I always side eyed very older men who had hit on me.The only reason they were paying me attention was because of my youth. No bueno

  35. A says:

    Harold Pinter already wrote that play (Old Times) and I’m highly skeptical that Aronofsky can improve upon it in any way.

  36. Grace says:

    This is BS. They didn’t start filming yet

  37. Lise says:

    This is In Touch, they write BS no stop. They invented an Aniston’s miscarriage for example. I’m surprise that people here believe in this story

  38. Carla says:

    Every time Lawrence starts a new movie there are some BS rumor. Pratt, Cooper now Aronofsky. LOL

    • brian says:

      Thanks for this… Every single female lead instantly gets this rumor started. Jennifer is no different. Also, where are you getting shes dated either alot or subpar. Since 4-years with Nic (whos cute but lame) shes dated Chris Martin (also lame) and dassit. Shes not had many dates at all. Aziz as cute as he is – only a friend. Shes hardly gone out much for a girl in her mid twenties. And such a cliche now to write each film, an actress is screwing her director. This film doesnt shoot for awhile yet. Cast is not secured.

  39. Sarah says:

    Guys, this is the girl who has openly gushed about how attracted she is to Larry David because she thinks he’s hilarious. Not surprising at all that she’d be into an extremely esteemed, interesting director — we’re attracted to people for all sorts of reasons!

  40. Maggy says:

    People this is In Touch, the kingdom of BS!!!!

  41. WhateverMang says:

    Guess she’s done with David O Russell.

  42. Julie says:

    “everyone on the set of the film (which is currently untitled) is buzzing about the romance.”
    LMAO at In Touch’s BS. The movie didn’t start filming yet

  43. Mika says:

    There are really people who believe in In Touch? LOL

  44. Nicole says:

    Yea like everyone said they aren’t even ON set yet. They don’t start till April. They did the same thing with Pratt creating on set affair rumors before they even landed in Atl.

  45. Maddy says:

    Dear In Touch,
    If you want to write a fan fiction check your facts right. The movie starts filming in April.
    Thanks

  46. Colette says:

    In Touch Weekly is about as reliable as OK magazine.Oh according to OK magazine Jennifer Aniston adopted two little girls,a 3 and 4 year old.LOL

  47. I Choose Me says:

    I love the coat and the boots she’s wearing in that last pic. I’m eh, whatever, about whomever she chooses to date.

  48. Veronica says:

    Whoa, I did not realize Aronofsky was 47. I thought he was thirties at best. If they are, well…I don’t think it’s the best idea to date your “boss,” but we’ve seen her date older now, so it’s not completely unbelievable. I’m still rooting for Aziz, though. Aziz all the time, everywhere.

  49. judgmental says:

    I read that Lawrence dated Martin because she wanted to venture into music career. And now it makes sense to me. People on ONTD pointed out that she also seems have a very thick skin. She sounds so…hardened.

  50. A.Key says:

    I seriously hope this is BS.

    If not, WTF, JLaw, what in the actual F?
