Film director Darren Aronofsky revealed that his ex-girlfriend, Jennifer Lawrence, lost control of her emotions when they filmed Mother!
An 'Emotionally Overwhelmed' Experience
Aronofsky revealed in a new interview with The Economist Radio that he was not responsible for pushing the Oscar-winning actress to the point where she injured her diaphragm on set. The director stated Lawrence's acting method took her over the edge and added that it lead to her injury.
"I wasn't pushing Jennifer on that day. I was pulling her back, [encouraging her] to remember that we were just making a movie," said Aronofsky to The Economist Radio in a conversation transcribed by Metro.
The Black Swan and The Fighter director revealed that he does not work well with method actors. Aronofsky added that he liked working with actors who leave their work for the camera and go back to normal once he yells cut. He also stated that what happened to Lawrence was very rare.
"I've never had that situation where an actor was so emotionally ... um ... overwhelmed by the material that they lost control and hurt themselves," said Aronofsky.
The End Of Lawrence And Aronofsky
Once the film wrapped production, Aronofsky began a relationship with Lawrence that started in September 2016. However, several obstacles came between them. Many people thought that their age differences might have been a significant factor in the breakup. Lawrence was 27 years old, and Aronofsky was 48 years old when the couple broke up in November 2017. The final nail in the couple's coffin was the negative reviews that surrounded Mother! and Aronofsky's obsession with perfecting the film.
As Jennifer Lawrence Turns
The spunky star of Joy and Silver Linings Playbook has made several news headlines over the past few weeks. Lawrence admitted to that she does not want to have sex, as she is scared that she is worried about receiving a sexually transmitted disease. In that same conversation, Lawrence revealed that she is also a germaphobe.
She also faced multiple dating rumors head-on. There were rumblings in the gossip world that Lawrence was dating her Red Sparrow costar Joel Edgerton. Numerous media outlets reported that Edgerton met Lawrence's family while they were in New York City, and several sources close to the American Hustle actress stated how much her family liked him after their dinner date.
Oscars And Housewives
Lawrence turned heads at the 2018 Academy Awards. While she presented the Best Actress award for acting icon Jodie Foster, she was spotted by numerous event attendees climbing over the Dolby Theatre chairs. Lawrence was carrying a wine glass in almost every photo inside the Los Angeles performance venue.
Before she traveled to Los Angeles for the Oscars, Lawrence visited Watch What Happens Live! With Andy Cohen on March 1. Cohen surprised her with a dream Real Housewives dinner with two of her favorite cast members of The Real Housewives of New York, Bethenny Frankel and Luann de Lesseps. Lawrence was overwhelmed by Cohen's kindness and shared glasses of wine with the celebrities.
