Jennifer Lawrence Spills on Fiery Relationship with Boyfriend Darren Aronofsky
Jennifer Lawrence and boyfriend Darren Aronofsky don’t always see eye-to-eye. Lawrence, 26, revealed when Aronofsky, 48, directed her in fall’s upcoming Mother!, she hyperventilated and dislocated one of her ribs from the stress and intensity of filming.
“I ended up getting on oxygen,” the Oscar winner revealed in Vogue’s September issue. “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**k yourself.’” Lawrence confessed she had to construct a tent full of guilty pleasures on the set to keep her in her “happy place,” complete with “pictures of the Kardashians and Keeping Up with the Kardashians playing on a loop — and gumballs.”
Aronofsky isn’t thrilled with her reality TV obsession, she admitted with a chuckle. “He just finds it so vastly disappointing.”
Still, she adores her beau, with whom she’s been linked since last year. “We had energy … I had energy for him,” she said. “I don’t know how he felt about me.”
“When I saw the movie, I was reminded all over again how brilliant he is,” said the actor, who previously dated Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and her X-Men co-star Nicholas Hoult. “For the past year, I’ve been dealing with him as just a human … I’ve been in relationships before where I am just confused. And I’m never confused with him.”
She added, “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.”
While Lawrence is happy in her relationship and with her career, she’s not too thrilled with the constant publicity that follows her every move — especially her moves on the pole, which went viral in May when a video of her letting loose at a strip club for a friend’s birthday hit the web.
“My biggest fear from that whole thing was that people were going to think that I was trying to be sexy,” she griped. “Also, it looked like I had taken my shirt off. I was in a crop top. I did not take off my shirt. I’m on the phone with my lawyers, and everybody’s like, ‘Is there anything we need to know before it comes out?’ And I’m like, ‘No, it’s all there.’”
“It’s scary when you feel the whole world judges you,” Lawrence lamented. “I think people saw [the hacking] for what it was, which was a sex crime, but that feeling, I haven’t been able to get rid of it. Having your privacy violated constantly isn’t a problem if you’re perfect. But if you’re human, it’s terrifying. When my publicist calls me, I’m like, ‘Oh, my God, what is it?’ Even when it’s nothing. I’m always waiting to get blindsided again.” She explained that the press has left her somewhat guarded with fans as well, for which she feels some guilt.
“I’m happy to meet people, give autographs, shake hands, and say ‘Thank you,’” she said. “I wouldn’t have a job if people weren’t going to see my movies. It’s just … if I’m on an aeroplane and I have no makeup on, I don’t want to take a selfie that’s going to end up on E!” Unfortunately, Lawrence can’t seek refuge from the craziness at home, for reasons hilarious enough to only apply to her. “When I first moved in, the house was crystalled out — crystals everywhere, and geodes, and I was like, ‘Please get rid of these; I don’t want people to come over here and think I’m a crystal person,’” she explained. “Not that there’s anything wrong with that! But everyone told me, ‘You can’t do that. You can’t move them. You have to have the crystal lady who put them in move them,’” she said. “I just had all the crystals yanked out. Sold them. And then my f — king house flooded.”
