Jennifer Lawrence thought boyfriend Darren Aronofsky had "severe psychological problems" after she read the "Mother!” script

Every relationship has its quirks. Sometimes you can’t stand the way your partner shrinks all your shirts in the wash. Maybe your lover does this weird humming sound that annoys you. Or maybe you partner wrote a terrifying horror movie that makes you wonder if they have severe psychological problems…right? Jennifer Lawrence is dating film director Darren Aronofsky, who also happens to be the director of the forthcoming horror film Mother!, which Lawrence stars in.

Apparently, when Lawrence read the script, she wondered if her boyfriend had lost his mind. But when talking about it, she first laid on the compliments.

“It was an instant yes before I even read anything,” Lawrence revealed during a press conference at the Toronto International Film Festival via Entertainment Weekly. “He told me his ideas and I thought they were brilliant and unique and challenging. I’ve been a fan of his for years — I think he’s bold and brave, and I think I said brilliant.”

And here comes the kicker: “But I’ve been a fan, so once he told me the ideas floating around in his head I said yes. Then I got a script and when I read it I threw it across the room and told him he had severe psychological problems. But it’s a masterpiece.”

Listen, we all have our ~things~ 😉. Meanwhile, Aronofsky has said some beautiful things about Lawrence’s acting prowess. The director told Entertainment Tonight that Lawrence is “a once-in-a-generation talent, and just a whirlwind and a hurricane and an earthquake and a thunderstorm of talent.”

Wow, get you a man who can do both.
