6 Things To Know About Jennifer Lawrence's New Boyfriend

Jennifer Lawrence has quietly been dating New York gallerist Cooke Maroney for weeks.

Lawrence, 27, and Maroney, 33, reportedly met through her good friend Laura Simpson and have secretly been dating ever since, Page Six reports. The two have only been spotted together a few times over the last few weeks.

“They met through Jen’s friend Laura,” a source told the outlet. “…The relationship has been going on a few weeks. But they have been very private and careful not to be seen together.”

They managed to keep their relationship on the DL — until now.

J.Law dated film director Darren Aronofsky, 49, before Maroney, and just linked up with him weeks before she reportedly began seeing her new artsy man.

The Hunger Games star reunited with her ex-boyfriend at the BAM Gala on May 30 and had nothing but good things to say about him. She even introduced him as a “good friend.”

During a podcast interview with comedian, Maron Lawrence, she explained that she is actually on good terms with all of her exes and has no hard feelings towards them.

“I have a theory. I think it’s because I’m blunt,” she said in the February interview. “I don’t think that you can have any sort of bad relationship with anybody if you’re just blunt. Everybody always knows how you feel at all times and there’s no lying, it’s just honesty. Everybody’s a good guy to each other. All my boyfriends have been wonderful … Every time I go through a breakup, it’s not like my heart isn’t broken. They just never did anything to like, devastate me. They were just good people.”
