Jennifer Lawrence Darren Aronofsky

Just weeks after their latest movie 'Mother!' hit the big screen, it has been revealed that Jennifer Lawrence and Darren Aronofsky have split up after dating for more than a year. It's not all bad news though, because they are clearly still very firm friends.

The 27-year-old actress and the 48-year-old director apparently started dating after completing the horror movie 'Mother!' in September 2016, though they kept their relationship largely under wraps. Now they have decided they are not the best fit for each other after all.

Jennifer Lawrence Splits From Darren Aronofsky


Jennifer Lawrence Darren Aronofsky

Jennifer Lawrence has split from Darren Aronofsky, bringing to an end their romance which lasted for just over a year.

The Oscar-winning Hunger Games actress, 27, has parted ways amicably with 48 year old director Aronofsky, having called it quits just over a month ago, according to a report by Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday (November 22nd).

The former couple met in 2016, when Lawrence starred in Aronofsky’s psychological horror movie Mother!, which was released a couple of months ago in cinemas to a rather divided reception.

Mother Review

Very Good

Darren Aronofsky doesn't make fluffy movies, and has only had one genuine misfire (2014's Noah). His best films are unforgiving explorations of artistic ambition (Black Swan), addiction (Requiem for a Dream) or mortality (The Wrestler), admittedly big themes. But this bonkers family horror movie perhaps has more in common with his ambitious existential sci-fi epic The Fountain: this is a resolutely symbolic movie that's impossible to take literally. And yet it still freaks us out.

 

It's set in a huge isolated house, which a young woman (Jennifer Lawrence) has been restoring for her older poet husband (Javier Bardem) after it burned down. Just as it's beginning to look good, and she starts thinking about starting a family, the husband invites a stranger (Ed Harris) to stay, and he encroaches on their hospitality by inviting his pushy wife (Michelle Pfeiffer) and their bickering sons (real-life brothers Domhnall and Brian Gleeson). After causing some chaos, they finally leave, the wife falls pregnant and the husband's writers' block finally breaks. But his new book inspires so much adulation from his fans that their happiness is in jeopardy.

Darren Aronofsky Responds To Negative 'mother!' Reviews


Darren Aronofsky

Rarely does a movie come out to such differing opinions as 'mother!' has done this past month, from director and writer Darren Aronofsky. Though the premise of the film doesn't sound all too alarming - a couple's relationship put to the test when they get unwanted and uninvited guests at their home - the extravaganza that awaits those brave enough to watch is truly horrifying and unique.

Some critics love 'mother!', whilst others absolutely hate it. There seems to be no middle ground for those who go and see the thriller, and we imagine that this is something Aronofsky was aiming for when he made the film.

Darren Aronofsky Calls Mother! A Hand Grenade


Darren Aronofsky

Never one to make a safe movie, filmmaker Darren Aronofsky wasn't surprised when his latest film Mother! was both cheered and booed when it premiered at the Venice Film Festival last week. As the dust settles, it's being tipped as an Oscar frontrunner.

"Most people, after they see the film, they don't even want to look at me," Aronofsky laughs. "But I don't care if they cheer or they freaking boo, as long as they react. This film is like tossing a hand grenade into pop culture! It's a cruise missile shooting into a wall. Surrealism is very rare nowadays, and it's interesting how many people don't remember that all movies are living, waking dreams."

Mother! Trailer


A young woman (Jennifer Lawrence) and her older husband (Javier Bardem) have the most perfect solitary life, spending all their time together in their beautiful and peaceful country home. But their paradise is about to be threatened with the arrival of an older couple (Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer), who appear to mistake their home for a bed and breakfast. The young woman's husband is accommodating to them despite their mistake and her serious reservations about letting strangers sleep in their house. Pretty soon this union of two couples turns into a bloody tale of fear, insanity and a whole load of weirdness - more people arrive at the sanctuary and the young woman's husband seems to be somebody else completely. Now it's a game of survival - God help you.

Emma Watson has been doing a lot of pondering on the next stage of her life. The Noah actress is now on the brink of graduating in English Literature from Brown University and is looking forward to life as a graduate and devoting more time to her passions rather than starring in blockbusters and studying.

Emma Watson Says She's Looking Forward To Yoga, Art & Theatre After Graduating.

She said: ''When I finish my degree, I will have a lot more time to pursue other passions, and I want to figure out what those will be. I love having something completely unrelated to the film industry. I want to find something that will let me use my brain in another way. I like connecting people who aren't part of that industry," via Wonderland Magazine.

'Noah': An Epic Of Biblical Proportions Taking America By Storm


Russell Crowe Darren Aronofsky Jennifer Connelly Emma Watson

Filmmaker Darren Aronofsky has experimented with most genres over the course of his career, from brainy freak-out ('Pi') to gritty self-discovery ('The Wrestler') by way of intense drama ('Requiem for a Dream'), personal sci-fi odyssey ('The Fountain') and psychological horror ('Black Swan'). We've learned long ago to stop expecting what he'd tackle next, but no one saw the biblical epic on his to-do list.

Noah Russell Crowe

Indeed, Noah isn't the usual biblical epic. Aronofsky has completely jettisoned the style of more reverential films for something much darker and more complex. It has understandably divided critics; some find it bloated and uneven, while others see something deep and provocative. But the one group that seems unsure what to make of it is America's notoriously powerful religious subculture.
