You hear that? That’s the sound of snarky hope vanishing into thin air. It appears we won’t be treated to the eye-rolling delights of a hand-jobby magazine interview in which Suki Waterhouse gushes about how “inspired” Darren Aronofsky is, or hearing Darren call Suki the Scottie Pippen of acting (JLaw is the Michael Jordan, remember). At least not anytime soon, because for the time being, Suki and Darren deny they’re dating.
Earlier this week, 26-year-old Suki and 48-year-old Darren were seen walking together at the Sundance Film Festival. All signs pointed to suspicious possible-hookup activity. A source also squealed to UsWeekly that Suki had shown up to Darren’s place two nights in a row while at Sundance, and that Darren was talking about her to friends on the plane ride home.
A source tells UsWeekly exclusively, “Darren is very into her and was telling friends how sweet and hot she was on his plane ride back.”
Darren was at Sundance to promote the VR project Spheres: Songs of Spacetime, and Suki was there to promote the movie she attempts to act in, Assassination Nation.
Suki and Darren’s reps both denied to Gossip Cop that they’re dating. Suki’s rep says, “They are not a couple and they are not dating.” Darren’s rep called all the stories about him and Suki “crazy,” and adds that, “There’s no romantic involvement whatsoever.”
I guess UsWeekly’s source must have misheard Darren when he was talking to his friends on that airplane. Maybe he was talking about some hot, sweet sushi he ate while in Sundance. Yeah, that must be it. Everyone eats their sushi hot from the oven and dipped in syrup, right?
