I’m not really surprised that Jennifer Lawrence’s recent engagement hasn’t been a big splashy affair with multiple tabloid covers and all of that. Jennifer really does know how to go dark and stay quiet, and she’s clearly still in stealth mode. She took the past year off to just get away from the constant celebrity cycle – she stayed in New York, quietly dating Cooke Maroney, and now they’re engaged. I think they’re for real, although I do think this sort of an Anne Hathaway-WhatsHisFace situation. And that’s fine too – every celebrity doesn’t have to be part of a celebrity couple with a portmanteau brand (although Jooke/Connifer sounds cool). Anyway, Us Weekly wants us to know that Jennifer “quits Hollywood” for Cooke. Chica’s not quitting sh-t.
It seems Jennifer Lawrence has found The One! The Hunger Games star, 28, and her fiancé, Cooke Maroney, “definitely appear to be in it for the long haul,” a source close to Lawrence says exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly.
The couple, who were introduced by the actress’ longtime friend Laura Simpson, started dating in the spring of 2018. Within months, they were vacationing together in Paris and Rome. And in February, the art gallery director, 34, proposed to Lawrence with a stunning diamond ring.
This is just the first excerpt from Us Weekly’s cover story, I’m assuming they have more details about this alleged “quitting” of Hollywood. It’s not going to happen though. Jennifer has to promote Dark Phoenix and she’s going to film Bad Blood – the Elizabeth Holmes movie – at some point this year. Once she gets back to work, I’m sure she’ll be scheduling a lot of projects back-to-back. And why wouldn’t she? She’s not giving up her career for a Cooke Maroney. She shouldn’t have to.
