Cooke Maroney Is “the Greatest Human Being” Jennifer Lawrence Has Ever Met

Cooke Maroney Is “the Greatest Human Being” Jennifer Lawrence Has Ever Met

After not discussing her fiancé for a while, J. Law now has a lot to say.

Considering she’s arguably the closest thing the current generation has to a Julia Roberts—an A-list movie star who is hugely popular and critically lauded—Jennifer Lawrence has been keeping an awfully low profile recently.

The actress had said in previous interviews that she wanted to take some time off from film work, and she has done just that. She hasn’t starred in a movie since Red Sparrow, which opened in March of 2018, and did a minimal amount of promotion for the recent Dark Phoenix, in which she had a supporting role. She hasn’t done much in the way of press, either. She’s showed up for her contracted Dior events, and occasionally stepped out for some revelry (see: her gay-bar outing with Adele that elated the Internet). And, most notably, over this time period, one of the world’s most famous actresses has been in a relationship so serious that she’s now engaged.

We don’t know all that much about her fiancé, Cooke Maroney, other than that he’s a 34-year-old director at a New York art gallery who previously worked at the Gagosian gallery after he studied art history at NYU. Per a Cut source, Maroney is “definitely fun-loving but [not] out of control,” a “young good New York guy who likes to participate and have fun.” Sounds cool!

This new era of Low-Profile J. Law has meant that we haven’t heard much at all from the actress about Maroney, whom she appears to have begun dating in June of 2018 (they were reportedly set up by Laura Simpson, a friend of Lawrence’s). We’ve had to content ourselves instead with the steady stream of photos of the pair dining out at a slew of buzzy New York restaurants (with the occasional jaunt to Europe). In one set of these photographs—taken of the two at dinner in February—an engagement ring was spotted on Lawrence’s hand, which is . . . how we found out they were engaged. A few weeks ago, the couple were snapped entering an engagement party of some sort—it’s rumored they’ll be getting married later this fall.

On Thursday, though, Lawrence appeared on a podcast (!)—hosted by former E! host Catt Sadler—during which she gushed about Maroney. She seems, uh, pretty happy! “He’s the greatest human being I’ve ever met,” she explained. “He really is, and he gets better.”

Asked why she decided to marry him, Lawrence continued, “I don’t know, I started with the basics. How do I feel? Is he nice? Is he kind? It’s just—this is the one, I know that sounds really stupid but he’s just, he’s—you know. He’s the greatest person I’ve ever met, so I feel very honored to become a Maroney.”

Does this mean our J. Law about to become J.…Mar? Also, we are very disappointed there wasn’t a follow-up question here about how she feels about the closeness of her new name to that of iconic 30 Rock character Jenna Maroney (played by Jane Krakowski).

“I definitely wasn’t at a place where I was like, I’m ready to get married,” Lawrence said. “I just met Cooke and I wanted to marry him. We wanted to marry each other, we wanted to commit fully. He’s my best friend. I want to legally bind him to me forever. And fortunately the paperwork exists for such a thing. You find your favorite person on the planet and you’re like, You can’t leave!”

While she is very, very adamant about her feelings about the man she is marrying, clearly, the other elements of the wedding rigamarole don’t seem to concern her all that much. “I’ve been in a good place,” she said. “I haven’t been neurotic about it. I’m like too lazy to be neurotic. I saw a dress I liked and I was like, That’s the dress. I saw a venue and I was like, Cool, we got the venue.”

She did, however, end up having a bachelorette party—or at least it sounds like she did? It’s hard to discern. “I thought I didn’t want to have bachelorette party, and then last minute I decided I did,” the actress said. “Then nobody was available because it was last minute. And then I started crying. I was like, I don’t even know why I’m crying. I didn’t know that I wanted a bachelorette party. I guess I just feel pathetic. [Maroney] was like, Oh my god, you don’t need to feel pathetic.” Imagine having anything else to do that you wouldn’t cancel even an hour in advance for a J. Law bachelorette party.

Cooke Maroney! The guy has a cool name, is the greatest person Jennifer Lawrence has ever met, is apparently a voice of comfort and encouragement when you’re feeling lame about demonstrating too much enthusiasm about an event. Not a bad C.V.!

Jennifer Lawrence Sets Big-Screen Return Aligned With Theater Director Lila Neugebauer

Jennifer Lawrence Sets Big-Screen Return Aligned With Theater Director Lila Neugebauer

Great news, new project for Jennifer!

In her first screen-starring role since announcing a year-long sabbatical, Jennifer Lawrence will star in an untitled film that will mark the feature directorial debut of acclaimed theater helmer Lila Neugebauer. Plot is under wraps, and the film is backed by IAC Films and A24. Script was written by first-time screenwriter Elizabeth Sanders.

Scott Rudin and Eli Bush are producing with Lawrence and Justine Polsky. A mid-June production start is set in New Orleans.

Lawrence has the X-Men: First Class sequel Dark Phoenix coming June 7 through Fox, and she took a break after making the films Red Sparrow and Mother! She won the Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook and got three other noms for Joy, American Hustle and Winter’s Bone, the latter a breakout turn that led to The Hunger Games and global stardom.

One of the standout young stage directors, Neugebauer made her Broadway debut last year with the acclaimed revival of Kenneth Lonergan’s The Waverly Gallery, starring Elaine May and Lucas Hedges and produced by Rudin and Bush. Her other plays include Tracy Letts’ Mary Page Marlowe, Edward Albee’s At Home at the Zoo: Homelife/The Zoo Story, and the world premieres of Sarah DeLappe’s The Wolves, The Mad Ones’ Mrs. Murray’s Menagerie and Miles For Mary, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ Everybody, and Annie Baker’s The Antipodes. She also directed an episode of the Duplass Brothers’ HBO series Room 104.

The film becomes another in the alliance between Rudin/Bush, IAC and A24 that encompasses Lady Bird, Eighth Grade, Mid90s and Ex Machina, and has upcoming the Safdie Brothers-directed Uncut Gems, Kelly Reichardt’s First Cow, and Joel Coen’s Macbeth with Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand. Rudin/Bush, IAC Films, and A24 also recently announced a joint venture for non-fiction films and series.

Polsky and Lawrence will produce through their newly formed production company Excellent Cadaver.

Lawrence is repped by LBI Entertainment and Hansen Jacobson; Neugebauer is with UTA.

The Hollywood Reporter Women in Entertainment Breakfast – Photos & Video

The Hollywood Reporter Women in Entertainment Breakfast – Photos & Video

I’ve added pictures from today’s The Hollywood Reporter Women in Entertainment Breakfast and here’s the video of Jennifer’s acceptance speach of the Sherry Lansing Award.

The Hollywood Reporter: The Jennifer Lawrence Interview, by Oprah Winfrey

The Hollywood Reporter: The Jennifer Lawrence Interview, by Oprah Winfrey

Jennifer Lawrence is this year’s Sherry Lansing Leadership Award Recipient by The Hollywood Reporter, and she’s featured on this month’s issue of the magazine, with a brand new interview by Oprah Winfrey. Below are the cover, some pictures from the shoot, the interview and videos.



The Oscar-winning actress talks to the legendary interviewer about everything from pay equity (“I had it up to my f—ing eyeballs”) to her dealings with Harvey (“He had only been nice to me — except for when he wasn’t”) to where she sees herself in 20 years: “I won’t have periods anymore, that’s a bonus.”
Oprah Winfrey barely knew Jennifer Lawrence when the actress called and said she’d like to meet and then on Oct. 5 drove to see Winfrey at her Montecito, California, home. “I was excited to have lunch, and we were just like ‘girls in the garden,'” says Winfrey. “We probably talked for three and a half hours about life and fame and growing up and money and management and taking care of yourself and spirituality and philosophy. We drank rosé, and we laughed, and we talked about everything.”
Almost everything. One thing they didn’t discuss was Harvey Weinstein, whose history of harassment and assault exploded into view that day, when The New York Times first detailed it. But Weinstein became a focal point of the two women’s conversation a few weeks later, when THR asked Winfrey, 63, to interview Lawrence for this Women in Entertainment issue. That was shortly before the 27-year-old actress was to receive the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award at THR’s annual Power 100 breakfast, an award Winfrey received in 2013.

Since their first meeting, the new friends have been texting back and forth. “I sent her a copy of Wisdom of Sundays and, before that, Power of Now and A New Earth,” notes Winfrey. “What resonates with me is that, when you are talking to her, what you’re seeing is the real thing. You’re not seeing any pretense. She’s asking all the right questions: ‘How can I be used? How can I use this moment for something bigger than myself?'”

Lawrence grew up in Louisville, Kentucky, and was propelled to fame with 2010’s Winter’s Bone. The Hunger Games made her a global superstar, along with roles in Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle and the X-Men series. But it’s not so much her stardom and four Oscar nominations (with a win for Silver Linings) that make her the perfect recipient of the Lansing award; it’s also her nonprofit endeavors. She’s been tireless in supporting Kentucky charities and those that help children in particular.

That’s one reason why Winfrey was so impressed by “how much light [Lawrence] carries. Capital L, capital Light. You can feel there’s a strong intelligence and a desire to use this moment for something greater than fame and fortune.”

OPRAH WINFREY I read this wonderful book by Elizabeth Strout [Anything Is Possible]. And in it, she was speaking about one of the characters who was so embittered and regretful, and the line she used was, “because her life did not turn out the way she had expected.” Is your life what you expected?

JENNIFER LAWRENCE When I started acting, I was totally satisfied when I was on a sitcom because I had a steady paycheck. And I was like, “Maybe I can just find a way to be on sitcoms forever.” I was totally satisfied and good. I never dreamed that I could have this kind of career.

When you dreamed the dream, what did the dream look like? I used to drive home from church with my father past rich white people’s houses — we’d be the last to leave our little church yard, and he’d be in this big, old, green Oldsmobile that I was embarrassed to be in — and I’d pick houses that I dreamed about living in, and that was a big dream for me: I’d have a house, I’d be able to pay my bills, I’d have two cars in the driveway.

I used to do that, too. I remember driving by big, beautiful houses, but I always dreamed of being there with my parents. I never imagined I’d be able to own something like that on my own. I thought for a while maybe I could be an interior designer — that was the only job I knew about because my mom was friends with an interior designer. I was mostly just focused on a family when I was little. I would have never thought I’d be so career-focused. It’s not something I knew about myself until I started becoming successful, and then I wanted to become more successful. I’d make a great movie, and then I’d want to make more great movies; I’d make money, I’d want to make more money. It was a mind-set I wasn’t ever aware I had until my early 20s.

And then, by the time you’re 27, you’ve got [an Oscar]. By the time you’ve gotten four [nominations], does it come with —

Jennifer Lawrence to Receive Sherry Lansing Award at Hollywood Reporter Women in Entertainment Breakfast

Jennifer Lawrence to Receive Sherry Lansing Award at Hollywood Reporter Women in Entertainment Breakfast

Angelina Jolie will deliver the keynote speech, while Meryl Streep is set to honor Amy Pascal, and $1 million in scholarships will be presented at the star-studded event.
Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence and distinguished film producer-executive Amy Pascal will be honored at The Hollywood Reporter’s 2017 Women in Entertainment breakfast, it was announced Thursday. The star-studded gala will take place Dec. 6 at Milk Studios in Los Angeles.

Academy Award-winning actress-filmmaker Angelina Jolie will deliver the keynote speech at the VIP event, where $1 million in university scholarships will be given to young women from disadvantaged backgrounds who have taken part in the Reporter’s highly competitive, 8-year-old Women in Entertainment Mentorship Program.

Lawrence will become the youngest person ever to receive the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award, given annually to a woman who has been a pioneer and philanthropic leader in her industry. Last year, the four-time Academy Award nominee (and winner for Silver Linings Playbook) donated $2 million to establish the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation Cardiac Intensive Care Unit at Kosair Children’s Hospital in her hometown, Louisville, Ky. The Jennifer Lawrence Foundation also assists a wide range of charitable organizations, supporting abused and neglected youth, along with many educational and health organizations. Lawrence recently joined the board of Represent.Us, the nation’s largest grassroots anti-corruption campaign which brings together conservatives, progressives and everyone in between to work towards fixing America’s corrupt political system. She also has been outspoken on issues of gender pay disparity and privacy rights in Hollywood.

Lawrence follows a long line of extraordinary Sherry Lansing Award recipients, including Barbra Streisand, Shonda Rhimes, Oprah Winfrey, Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Helen Mirren, Halle Berry, Jodie Foster, Glenn Close, Barbara Walters and, most recently, Tina Fey.

Meryl Streep, a former Lansing Award recipient, will present Pascal with the second annual Equity in Entertainment Award, given to an individual in the showbiz community who has proved committed to providing opportunities for women and people of color. Pascal follows writer-producer Ryan Murphy, last year’s recipient. A former chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment, Pascal is also the producer of such movies as Spider-Man: Homecoming and the upcoming Molly’s Game and The Post. Her company, Pascal Pictures, strives to create avenues for women and people of color, in front of the camera and behind it.

“Both Jennifer and Amy perfectly embody the driving force behind THR’s Women in Entertainment initiative,” said Matthew Belloni, editorial director of The Hollywood Reporter. “They continue to use their voices and their talent to create opportunities for women in the industry, and I can’t think of two more deserving individuals to honor.”

“Having Jennifer agree to accept the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award is a wonderful honor,” said Lansing, the former CEO of Paramount Pictures and the first woman to head a Hollywood studio. “In merely a decade, her remarkable professional achievements, her willingness to take risks, and her philanthropic generosity have inspired millions. She reminds young women all over the world that their voices are meant to be heard. The Hollywood Reporter could not have chosen a better individual to recognize.”

Jolie, whose Cambodian war drama First They Killed My Father was recently selected as that country’s entry for the Best Foreign Language Picture at the upcoming 90th Academy Awards, has enjoyed a year of striking achievement. In addition to continuing her humanitarian work — which includes over a decade of service as Special Envoy of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees — she is soon to reprise her title role in Disney’s upcoming sequel to its 2014 blockbuster Maleficent.

“Angelina Jolie has dedicated her life to helping women and girls in war zones, from her girls’ school in Kenya to her primary schools in eastern Afghanistan,” said Belloni. “Her efforts to end sexual violence worldwide is unparalleled in the Hollywood community, and we’re humbled and exhilarated that she’ll be delivering our keynote speech this year.”

Additionally, $1 million in university scholarships will be given to girls now taking part in The Hollywood Reporter’s Women in Entertainment Mentorship Program. Among the scholarships, each of the 18 girls currently in the program will receive $10,000 to attend the university of her choice (jointly funded by Lifetime and Entertainment Industry Foundation), with two girls receiving full-ride scholarships worth more than $240,000 apiece to attend Loyola Marymount University.

The Women in Entertainment breakfast, sponsored by Lifetime and Loyola Marymount University in partnership with the Entertainment Industry Foundation, coincides with the publication of The Hollywood Reporter’s annualWomen in Entertainment: Power 100, the definitive guide to the leading women in film and television.
