And there it goes, my hope of reading a future wedding day story about Jennifer Lawrence tripping repeatedly down the aisle in a busted Dior wedding gown while Darren Aronofsky waits impatiently at the end in his finest formal scarf. People magazine is reporting that JLaw and Darren have called it quits after a little more than a year of dating.
27-year-old Jennifer and 48-year-old Darren started seeing each other after wrapping filming on mother! last year, and they kept their relationship fairly hush-hush (save for a few public smooches for the paps). They finally went public-ish back in September at the Venice Film Festival.
People can’t say for sure why Jennifer and Darren decided to end things. I saw the stinky cinematic fart known as mother!, so I don’t blame either of them for calling it a day and moving on. And if I had to guess at which point Jennifer decided it was over, I’d say probably about six seconds after she saw herself on screen in that hideous dirty mop water rayon mess of a wig.
But this isn’t a recent break-up. An insider tells Page Six that Jennifer and Darren have actually been broken up for about a month. The insider adds that despite being over, they remain friends. Okay well, we’ll see about that. I can’t imagine a platonic friendship between those two will last very long.
Darren: “Hello Jennifer. What are you doing Friday night? I was thinking of screening a silent black and white experimental film that’s just three hours of a squirrel in the rain.”
Jennifer: “Does the squirrel make a joke about his nuts?”
Darren: “I said it was silent.”
Jennifer: “Thank you, but I believe I’m busy that night.“
