Jennifer Lawrence Calls Fiancé Cooke Maroney ‘The Greatest Human Being I’ve Ever Met’

Jennifer Lawrence is opening up about why she fell for her fiancé Cooke Maroney. During this week’s episode of former E! News reporter Catt Sadler‘s podcast Naked with Catt Sadler, the Oscar winner shared new details about her ultra-private relationship with Maroney and her wedding planning process. “He’s the greatest human being I’ve ever met,” the 28-year-old actress said on the podcast. “He really is, and he gets better.” When asked how she chose to marry him, Jennifer said, “I don’t know, I started with the basics. ‘How do I feel? Is he nice? Is he kind?’ It’s just — this is the one, I know that sounds really stupid but he’s just, he’s — you know. He’s the greatest person I’ve ever met, so I feel very honored to become a Maroney.” “I definitely wasn’t at a place where I was like, ‘I’m ready to get married,’” she added. “I just met Cooke and I wanted to marry him. We wanted to marry each other, we wanted to commit fully.” “He’s my best friend. I want to legally bind him to me forever,” Jennifer continued. “And fortunately the paperwork exists for such a thing. You find your favorite person on the planet and you’re like, ‘You can’t leave!’” “I’ve been in a good place,” she added. “I haven’t been neurotic about [wedding planning]. I’m like too lazy to be neurotic. I saw a dress I liked and I was like, ‘That’s the dress.’ I saw a venue and I was like, ‘Cool, we got the venue.’” She did panic when planning her bachelorette party, however! “I thought I didn’t want to have bachelorette party, and then last minute I decided I did,” Jennifer said. “Then nobody was available because it was last minute. And then I started crying. I was like, ‘I don’t even know why I’m crying. I didn’t know that I wanted a bachelorette party. I guess I just feel pathetic.’ [Cooke] was like, ‘Oh my god, you don’t need to feel pathetic.’”

Jennifer Lawrence to Star in Untitled A24 Drama

The Hollywood Reporter  In-demand New York stage director Lila Neugebauer will make her feature debut on the project from first-time screenwriter Elizabeth Sanders, produced by Scott Rudin and Eli Bush. Jennifer Lawrence has locked in her first new project since announcing she was taking a breather a year ago. While details are being kept under wraps, the film looks to be something of a return to the Oscar winner’s indie-scale roots with her breakout vehicle Winter’s Bone. Scott Rudin and Eli Bush are producing through their IAC Films division and its partnership with A24, with Lawrence and Justine Polsky also on the producing team through their newly formed company Excellent Cadaver. Lawrence’s return to the X-Men franchise, Dark Phoenix, opens June 7 from Fox. The untitled new film project, written by first-time screenwriter Elizabeth Sanders, will mark the feature debut of Lila Neugebauer, who has quickly ascended in the past few years to become one of the most exciting young New York stage directors. Principal photography will start mid-June in New Orleans. “It’s an intimate film that wants to be close to the bone and wants to be quite personal,” says Neugebauer, who has gained a reputation for the subtlety of her productions, with their ultra-naturalistic flow and seamless ensemble work. Regarding her transition into film, Neugebauer tells The Hollywood Reporter: “It’s something that I’ve hoped to do and has been in the back of my mind for some time now. I directed my first episode of television last spring, on the Duplass Brothers’ HBO show Room 104. That was a really lovely opportunity to get behind the camera, because the throughline of that anthology show is that they’re all set in the same hotel room, so in a way, they’re sort of all one-act plays. It was a very natural fit.” Neugebauer’s acclaimed off-Broadway productions have included Sarah DeLappe’s The Wolves, which was produced in association with Rudin, Annie Baker’s The Antipodes, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ Everybody, Edward Albee’s At Home at the Zoo and Tracy Letts’ Mary Page Marlowe. She made her Broadway debut this season on the Rudin- and Bush-produced revival of Kenneth Lonergan’s The Waverly Gallery, which starred Elaine May, Lucas Hedges, Joan Allen and Michael Cera. “Scott very wonderfully thought of me for this project, and sent me the script a couple months ago,” continues Neugebauer. “It is a first, but I feel really gratified that I think it’s the right first project for me in the film world. And thus far Jen has been a really astonishing partner as well. It was very clear to me very quickly that we have a deep shared understanding of the project and she’s a really collaborative spirit, so I’m looking forward to having this opportunity to merge minds with her.” The Lawrence feature marks the second new project announced in the past few weeks from IAC and A24, which teamed previously on Lady Bird, Eighth Grade, Mid90s and Ex Machina. The companies also are working on a film adaptation of Stephen Karam’s 2016 Tony Award winner for best play, The Humans, which was produced by Rudin on Broadway. Karam will adapt and direct the film, set to star Beanie Feldstein, Richard Jenkins, Amy Schumer, Steven Yeun and Jayne Houdyshell, reprising her Tony-winning role. Also in the pipeline from Rudin and Bush is Kelly Reichardt’s First Cow; Joel Coen’s Macbeth, starring Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand; and the Safdie Brothers’ Uncut Gems, with Adam Sandler and LaKeith Stanfield, which pundits are eyeing for a fall festival premiere.

Jennifer Lawrence and Cooke Maroney are engaged!!

E! Jennifer Lawrence is on her way to becoming a Mrs.! The A-list actress and boyfriend Cooke Maroney are engaged, Lawrence’s rep confirmed to E! News. Speculation that Jennifer, 28, had accepted a proposal from Cooke, 34, made headlines when the bride-to-be was spotted wearing what sources described to Page Six as a “massive ring” on her finger during a recent date night. J. Law was first romantically linked to the art gallerist in June 2018. It’s reported that the pair was introduced by Jennifer’s best gal pal and date to the 2014 Oscars, Laura Simpson. In the months that followed, the Oscar winner and her boyfriend would enjoy a romantic getaway to Europe and share PDA during outings in New York City. Unlike Jennifer’s prior outlook on love, which included much more public relationships with Nicholas Hoult and Darren Aronofsky, she and Cooke have decided to get to know each other away from the public eye.

Jennifer Lawrence’s Beauty Routine

The 28-year-old actress and face of Joy, the newest fragrance from Dior, keeps it low-maintenance. FRAGRANCE Family legacy: “The scent my mom always wore was Miss Dior. That was my first smell of perfume, so Dior has been in my nostrils since I was a child. And it’s so weird that I have my own fragrance now!” Creative vision: “About eight months ago or so, I went to Paris to visit the laboratory with François [Demachy, Dior’s perfumer- creator]. He had been carrying around the scent for about a year and adding to it. So I got to smell all the different ingredients, and it was just such a cool experience. I had no idea what went into making a perfume. It’s also fascinating how one note will smell one way, and then when you pair it with another it smells completely different.” Signature scent: “I like that Joy is not too strong; it’s very airy. It’s floral with a hint of sandalwood, and I think it’s modern but classic. It just seems to be kind of open and not over-whelming, which is the number-one thing I don’t like about perfumes.” MAKEUP Brow must: “My grandma told me that I need to pay closer attention to my eyebrows at one point, so I now do.” Fresh- faced: “If I don’t have an event, I normally don’t wear makeup. Since I often get it done professionally, I’m probably better off staying away from my face. I have learned nothing from the pros—ha!” SKIN & HAIR Smooth move: “I exfoliate every night, and it really doesn’t matter what I use. You can kind of use anything grainy, so I change it up.” Less is more: “I have really dry skin, so I use night cream, and I always do this very thick mask. I can’t remember the name of the brand, but it doesn’t smell very good!” Skin-care philosophy: “I think it’s important to change up facial products, but I do use retinol under my night cream every night. It says not to use it every night, but I always say,‘Fuck it.’” SPF: “During the day, I use sunblock. It doesn’t matter what, but I always make sure it has zinc in it.” “I do use retinol under my night cream every night. It says not to use it every night, but I always say,’F*ck it.’” Expert opinion: “My facialist is Georgia Louise in New York. I normally just defer to her on everything.” Texture: “I’m so bad with hair! I have naturally curly hair, so of course I hate when it’s curly. I prefer to blow it out straight.” Hairstyle: “Riawna Capri [at Nine Zero One in L.A.] did my current cut. I like it to look choppy and uneven.” DIET & FITNESS Morning routine: “Coffee. Then I brush my teeth. Sunblock. Then put on concealer.Take my dog [Pippi] to the park. Shower. And then I just putter around, really. I watch CNN and yell at the news. I wish so badly that they could hear me.” Simple life: “I really wish I was better about health. I don’t take vitamins, and I eat like an 11-year- old orphan. But I exercise! I do Pilates and I run.” Puppy love: “Pippi gets an oatmeal bath about once every three weeks. And she gets more exercise than Mom.” Harpers Bazaar
