Every woman dreams of finding the one to walk down the aisle toward — and, for Jennifer Lawrence, that man is 34-year-old art director Cooke Maroney!
The 28-year-old star hit the red carpet for the premiere of her latest film, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, at the Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles last night, where she spoke about her mysterious fiancé to Entertainment Tonight reporter Nischelle Turner for the very first time. When asked why Cooke is “the one,” Jennifer replied, “Well, he’s just the best person I’ve ever met in my whole life. It was a very, very easy decision.”
Jennifer and Cookie reportedly started dating in June of last year, after they were spotted enjoying a romantic meal together at Sant Ambroeus in New York City, and got engaged in February of 2019 after Jennifer was spotted sporting a huge ring on that finger.
Jennifer was previously linked to director Darren Aronofsky, and although the pair called it quits in November of 2017, Jen insists there are no hard feelings between the pair. “We have an amazing friendship that started before the movie, then we had a partnership with the movie, and then we had a romance that came from the movie,” she told Vanity Fair in an interview after their split. “So, when you strip the romance away, we still have immense respect for each other… I think we’ll work together again.”
