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.’”
