Jennifer Lawrence and Darren Aronofsky fell in love while making ‘mother!‘ and now it looks like they fell out of love while promoting it. As most of you know, the two stars dated for a year, but it was announced last week that they recently decided to end things.
And during the annual Actors on Actors interview series, Lawrence may have revealed why they couldn’t make things work following the release of their bizarre film.
She sat down with Adam Sandler, and they both talked about how they try to avoid reading any reviews about their movies, especially the negative reviews. mother! received mixed reviews from critics, and that’s putting it nicely. It was obviously a shock to see such a negative reaction to the movie, but Lawrence didn’t want to spend time thinking about it. She loved the movie, and that’s all she cared about.
But Aronofsky? He couldn’t let it go…
“We’d be on the tour together, I’d come back to the hotel and the last thing I want to talk about or think about is the movie, and he comes back and that’s all he wants to talk about. I was doing double duty of trying to be a supportive partner while also being like, ‘Can I please, for the love of God, not think about ‘mother!’ for one second?’”
They also didn’t agree on the correct way to promote the movie. Aronofsky wanted the audience to go in cold. He didn’t want them to know anything about the movie.
Lawrence does not agree with that…
“Some think: don’t tell anyone anything, let them figure it out on their own. I feel like it’s better to know and understand the metaphor and allegories because then you know what you are looking at. I’ve been spilling the themes and metaphors all over town!”[mashshare]
