Jennifer Lawrence's romance with director Darren Aronofsky confirmed

Last month it was reported that actress Jennifer Lawrence was dating director Darren Aronofsky, who is 21 years her senior.

Now, the pair have seemingly confirmed their romance after Jen was spotted kissing Darren on the lips following a romantic dinner date.

No longer attempting to hide their relationship, the pair were holding hands as they strolled through New York City, with the couple falling for eachother after they met in the summer on the set of their new film, which is currently unnamed.

After they were spotted on a string of incredibly low-key dates in Los Angeles, a source told The Sun: “Jennifer and Darren have tried to keep things low-key and under wraps but they are really into each other.

“Recently Jennifer was working on a gruelling project and she relied on Darren for support and they were in constant contact. It seemed to show they were the real deal.”

Jennifer’s last serious relationship was with Coldplay’s Chris Martin, and the 26-year-old star is apparently enjoying the extra privacy that comes with her new relationship.

An insider claimed: “She struggled when she dated Chris [Martin] and seemed very stressed out. With Darren, it will probably be different.

“He does not attract attention like Chris does. He is very low-key. He does not seem like a person who enjoys being a celebrity. Jennifer is the same.”

Darren has a 10-year-old son with his former fiancee, Rachel Weisz.
