Jennifer Lawrence & Darren Aronofsky saw ‘Beauty & the Beast’ together


Jennifer Lawrence at Passengers Premiere in LA

I haven’t written about Jennifer Lawrence in two months. And when I did, it was a political-ish story about her reaction to Donald Trump. J-Law has been pretty quiet now for months, ever since she finished promoting Passengers in December. She’s been working in Budapest, and I haven’t missed her at all. In the middle of the awards-season, it actually struck me that this was the first time in years without Jennifer falling all over the place at an awards show. Let me be clear: I actually sort of like J-Law and I’m an apologist for her about many things. But she needed to “go away” for a while and let people miss her.

Something I actually forgot about was the fact that J-Law had started dating Darren Aronofsky last year. They apparently started up late in the summer, and while we haven’t heard much about them in months, they’re still together. They were photographed this week in New York.

E! News has more on their date:

Jennifer Lawrence is lying low these days…with boyfriend Darren Aronofsky. The couple was spotted out and about in New York City Saturday, spending a chilly Manhattan day at the movies before grabbing a bite to eat at an Indian restaurant. E! News has obtained exclusively photos of the couple giving each other a warm embrace before heading out for their date day.

“Their relationship seems very strong and genuine,” a source tells E! News, noting that they “kissed and hugged” throughout their day. The Oscar-winning actress and director saw Beauty and the Beast and then made their way to Bhatti Indian Grill. Jen bundled up in a black puffy coat and steel-colored chapeau, which she paired with a pair of blue jeans. The Oscar-nominated director looked equally as warm and casual in a yellow beanie and gray coat.

A separate source tells E! News that even though they haven’t been spotted out in public in a while, their relationship is going strong. “Jen and Darren are still very much so together,” the insider says. “Darren visited Jen in Budapest while she was filming Red Sparrow recently. He was there during his birthday and to support her while she was away filming. They are very happy together right now.”

E! News previously reported that Lawrwence and Aronofsky have been “official” since August. Aronofsky shares a 10-year-old son, Henry, with ex Rachel Weisz, but there’s no word on whether Lawrence has met him yet. A source did note, however, that Lawrence “seems very comfy with his family.”

Ha, they went to see Beauty and the Beast… without Darren’s kid??? I mean, I get it, J-Law probably wanted to see it and Darren was like, “um, okay.” As for the rest of it… I don’t necessarily have a problem with Jennifer dating older guys, and when you’re in your mid-20s and you date men in their 40s, of course you’re going to have to deal with the baggage that comes with those dudes. But still… I have to think this is just a phase for J-Law. Aronofsky isn’t the Forever Dude. He’s the Just For Now Dude.

    she has a thing for older men with children. although i’m with you, it’s no bfd since she’s in her mid 20s so very much an adult.

    i think they did this pap walk because there were some rumours they had broken up, but tbh i doubt anyone cares. it’s funny to see her stans on tumblr saying this relationship is pr to cover up her affair with chris pratt. or something. stans often rumble and i can only understand that much.

  2. Veronica says:

    Eh, there’s nothing wrong with having a “For Now” dude. She’s in her twenties. I imagine in her industry it’s hard to work around all that ego, especially if she’s the reigning female actress, so I can see how dating up in age and industry seems like a good idea.

    I think J. Law is actually pretty good at disappearing between movies. I do think she needs to move outside her shell of privilege a little and learn to watch what she says, given how large her public platform is.

    “Aronofsky isn’t the Forever Dude. He’s the Just For Now Dude.”

    Is he ANYBODY’S Forever Dude? Isn’t he one of them there “serial over-lappers?” 😒

    Jennifer…Dont spend your 20s dating old overweight ugly dudes. Hook up with hot guys as much as you can. So many sexy athletes, actors, singers and she gets this egg looking dude…

  5. TheOtherOne says:

    Serious question – what is his appeal? He was with Rachel Weisz and now Jennifer Lawrence – both of whom I find physically attractive and who both have personalities. Why are they attracted to him? Intellect?

  6. Suzanne says:

    All of these ‘sources’ always talk about how she hated being with chris martin because she’s so lowkey but chris martin has been with his girlfriend for a while and you never see them on pap walks or you never she exclusive updates on their relationship. She can’t say she’s private then leak all of this stuff

    • dana says:

      lol chris’s girlfriend post about him all the time on her IG they dont need sources. plus they have been pictured togther plenty of times unlike how he was with jennifer and goop because the girl he is dating right now isnt as famous and the media doesnt find them interesting.

      • Suzanne says:

        Posting pics of him at his gig is totally different and you don’t hear anything because he isn’t with jen leaking stuff

      • dana says:

        jennifer is the most famous actress in Hollywood right now of course the media will try to get sources to talk about her relationships plus she is private and doesnt have soical media so its natural to see the media dig up stuff about her. I doubt she needs to leak stuff, she doesnt need the attention, she already got it just by her name. I just find it funny that you think chris is the one whos private lol I mean did you see his pictures with his girlfriend, he is comfortable with her because she is not a bigger name than him,its obvious.

      • ell says:

        lol this. i don’t like jlaw either, but to throw her under the bus for goop martin, who’s been notoriously unpleasant towards the mother of his children, is a stretch.

    • Hannah says:

      Are you kidding @suzanne. Martin and his gf were all over each other right in front of the paps 5 minutes after he broke up with jlaw. Jlaw got papped with aronofsky like twice in 9 months. It’s not like there’s an abundance of pictures. It looks like a normal low key relationship.

    I find it funny this came out two days after her ex Nicholas Hoult relationship with a playmate became public. I’ve heard A few rumblings that Jen and Nick still have some sort of kinship. I also know Jennifer has a private ig account that used to like all Nicks pictures very quickly (as if she had him on alert) but ever since he’s been with that playmate he was spotted with the playmate in November she hasn’t liked anything. Her private ig isn’t hard to find when you scroll through Nicks ig (that become public but used to be private)

  8. Lucy says:

    Eh, sure. I agree that this doesn’t seem long-term. I’m also pretty sure she didn’t miss being a part of this years’ awards season either.

  9. CornyBlue says:

    I just want Jennifer to hook up with hot dudes so i can live through her. Also I rewatched Black Swan and Aronofsky is such a good director my god.

    Honestly, I haven’t missed her at all. She just gets on my nerves for some reason.
