Jennifer says she and Darren started dating after filming wrapped on Darren’s movie Mother!, in which she stars (it’s out Sept. 15).
“We had energy,” she told Vogue. “I had energy for him. I don’t know how he felt about me.”
She also said that watching Mother! reminded her “how brilliant he is” and that he’s an “amazing father” to his child with ex Rachel Weisz. “I’ve been in relationships before where I am just confused,” she continued. “And I’m never confused with him.”
It wouldn’t be a J.Law profile without something “relatable,” so on that score, there’s this anecdote about how the crew on Mother! put together a “Kardashian tent” for her during filming so that she’d have moments of joy during an otherwise dark shoot. “It was a tent that had pictures of the Kardashians and Keeping Up with the Kardashians playing on a loop — and gumballs,” she said. “My happy place.” Darren, who must maintain the appearance of a Very Serious Director at all times, pointedly noted that he had no part in the creation of said tent, and J.Law added that he does not approve of her obsession. “He just finds it so vastly disappointing,” she said. Oh, you mean like Noah?
