Jennifer Lawrence and director Darren Aronofsky have had an “amicable split,” Entertainment Tonight reported on Wedndesday.
The two dated for around a year after working together on the film mother!, released earlier this year to mixed reactions. While two spoke highly of each other during the press run of the film and are reportedly remaining friends after their split, Lawrence recently discussed how exactly they transitioned from a work relationship to a personal one.
“I had a crush on him when he pitched [mother!] to me, and that was like a year before we started rehearsing, but he was a professional, which only made it worse for me,” she said on The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast. “We just formed a friendship and then the friendship turned into a partnership for the movie, once we started working. And then once the movie was done, I was like, ‘All right! You’re my boyfriend.’”
Twitter reacted to the breakup of the unexpected couple with pretty similar jokes all tying back to the film.
If Darren Aronofsky and Jennifer Lawrence can’t make it, what hope is there for any grossly mismatched couple in this topsy-turvy world?

If you don’t know mother!, though it’s about many things, is primarily about a woman suffering because of her artist husband’s vanity. So. Yeah.
