(Arrested Development voice) Him? That’s what a source who spoke to InTouch claims. Darren Aronofsky reportedly “pulled the plug” on his relationship with Jennifer Lawrence. According to InTouch’s source, Jennifer really, really loved Darren and thought they were going to get married. The source claims the two had conversations about moving into Jennifer’s Beverly Hills mansion and spending the rest of their lives together. That surprises me. It was my understanding that Darren’s conversation skills were limited solely to dissecting the piss-poor mother! reviews.
InTouch’s source says the break-up came down to kids. Specifically, 27-year-old Jennifer eventually wants them and 48-year-old Darren wasn’t so sure. Darren already has an 11-year-old son with Rachel Weisz, and was reluctant to have any more. Jennifer also wanted to take some time off from Hollywood, so he broke up with her. I wonder how a breakup orchestrated by Darren Aronofsky would go? I’m picturing a record playing backwards screechy violin music in a room lit with a single overhead flickering fluorescent light and “It’s Over” spelled out on a steel table in pills.
Hearing that Darren and Jennifer allegedly broke up based on their incompatible feelings about children reinforces my theory that transparency is so important in relationships. And it should start early! Ideally, every first date would start with a clear list of likes, like it did on MTV’s Next. Knowing if someone wants kids or idolizes Ryan Seacrest is the sort of information you should really have up front.
