Jennifer Lawrence has confirmed that she is dating Darren Aronofsky. The couple was first linked back in November when they were spotted enjoying a romantic date in New York City.

The 26-year-old Oscar-winning actress confessed, “We had energy. I had energy for him. I don’t know how he felt about me.” Jennifer seemed to be smitten with the director: "When I saw the movie, I was reminded all over again how brilliant he is" she added, “For the past year, I’ve been dealing with him as just a human.” She also praised how much of an “amazing father” he is to his 10-year-old son.

The Harvard educated film producer appears to add clarity to her life despite their 20-year age difference: “I’ve been in relationships before where I am just confused. And I’m never confused with him.”

Jennifer has been previously been unlucky in love, as her last romance with Coldplay’s Chris Martin came to an end, partly due to their busy schedules.

The star also addressed rumours about taking selfies with fans: “I’m happy to meet people, give autographs, shake hands, and say ‘Thank you,’ ” she says. “I wouldn’t have a job if people weren’t going to see my movies. It’s just . . . if I’m on an airplane and I have no makeup on, I don’t want to take a selfie that’s going to end up on [the internet]!”

The actress posted a Facebook status earlier this year sharing her thoughts on gender pay gap: “Happy Equal Pay Day, where hopefully soon we will be celebrating women being paid the same as men for the same work.”

Jennifer is also the face of the 125th anniversary September issue of Vogue across four commemorative covers.
