Jennifer Lawrence Praises Director Darren Aronofsky, Admits to Being a ‘Psychotic Dog Mom’ in ‘Vanity Fair’

Jennifer Lawrence discusses her rumored boyfriend, director Darren Aronofsky, and her deep-seated obsession with her dog Pippi in the holiday issue of Vanity Fair.

Lawrence reflects on the important relationships that have supported her throughout her career as she steamrolls through her next career ventures, including her 20th film, Passengers (out Dec. 21), such as her connection with fellow actress Emma Stone. Stone and Lawrence met through her Hunger Games co-star, Woody Harrelson, who gave Lawrence’s number to Stone while they filmed Zombieland together.

“She texted me that she got my number from Woody,” Lawrence tells Vanity Fair. “I replied, Fuck off!’ And we’ve been really good friends ever since.”

Stone tells the magazine that she doubted her own abilities when she compared herself to Lawrence. “She may not even know this,” Stone confides in Vanity Fair writer Julie Miller, “but there was definitely a time early on when I was like OH HEY MY EGO IS GOING NUTS SHE’S SO GREAT AND VIBRANT AND TALENTED I’M SCREWED I’LL NEVER WORK AGAIN GOODBYE YELLOW BRICK ROAD.’ Then I chilled the fuck out—and remembered we’re completely different and there is room for everyone, even if it’s an industry that doesn’t really seem to support that idea up front.”

Looking ahead, Lawrence praises Aronofsky, her rumored boyfriend and the director of her upcoming film Mother, describing him as “a visionary.” However, the actress did not speak on their relationship’s legitimacy.

The 26-year-old actress presses for a “bridesmaids’ union” (“It’s horrendous. If anyone asks me again, I’m going to say, ‘No. That part of my life is over. I appreciate the ask.'”) and discusses finding confidence in her own voice (“It’s not as scary to say what you mean anymore. Remember how scary that used to be? Like ‘What if they think I’m mad at them?’ Now it’s like ‘They better think I’m mad!’”). Additionally, she really, really, really, loves her dog, Pippi.

“I am a psychotic dog mom in a way that I am genuinely embarrassed about. If I could put her inside me and give birth to her I would.”
