Jennifer Lawrence and Darren Aronofsky Have Actually Been Dating For Longer Than You Think

Jennifer Lawrence and Darren Aronofsky have been dating for quite some time now, but very little is known about their relationship. Reports of a romance began swirling in August 2016 when they were working on their upcoming film, Mother!, but they actually were first spotted together months before. It wasn't until they were photographed making out in NYC that November that they pretty much confirmed the speculation. Jennifer was lasted linked to Coldplay's Chris Martin, while Darren was previously engaged to actress Rachel Weisz, with whom he shares 11-year-old son Henry. Even though the two usually shy away from talking about their personal lives, we still have a few sweet details about their low-key love that, if the timeline adds up, has been going on for more than a year now.

  • August 2017: Jennifer opened up about her relationship with Darren for the first time in Vogue's September issue. "We had energy. I had energy for him. I don't know how he felt about me," she explained. "When I saw the movie [Mother!], I was reminded all over again how brilliant he is. 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. 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." Darren also couldn't help gush about Jennifer's incredible talent, saying, "It's such a raw, natural talent she has. I always kind of compare her to Michael Jordan."
