Rumors that Jennifer Lawrence may or may not be dating Darren Aronofsky have been buzzing for nearly a year. And while the two had previously refused to either confirm or deny their relationship, they appear to have had a change of heart. Opening up to Vogue for its epic 125th anniversary September issue, JLaw not only admitted that she鈥檚 smitten, but she also revealed what鈥檚 so very special about her 鈥渂rilliant鈥 boyfriend, the director of her upcoming (super creepy) movie, mother!.

鈥淚 normally don鈥檛 like Harvard people, because they can鈥檛 go two minutes without mentioning that they went to Harvard,鈥 the 26-year-old actress began. 鈥淗e鈥檚 not like that.鈥 She did admit, though, that he hates the fact that she watches reality TV. 鈥淗e just finds it so vastly disappointing.鈥

We have to wonder how he reacted to the 鈥淜ardashian tent鈥 the crew set up for Lawrence off set, where she could shake off the darkness that followed her after filming scenes for mother!. 鈥淚t was a tent that had pictures of the Kardashians and Keeping Up With the Kardashians playing on a loop 鈥 and gumballs,鈥 Lawrence said. 鈥淢y happy place.鈥 Sounds pretty great, TBH.

What also sounds great is the way in which the actress talks about her relationship with Aronofsky, who has a son from his previous relationship with Rachel Weisz. Despite the 22-year age gap between them (Aronofsky is 48), Lawrence said they 鈥渉ad energy.鈥 Then she clarified: 鈥淚 had energy for him. I don鈥檛 know how he felt about me.鈥

She speaks glowingly about his work. 鈥淲hen I saw [mother!], I was reminded all over again how brilliant he is. For the past year, I鈥檝e been dealing with him as just a human,鈥 she said. 鈥淚鈥檝e been in relationships before where I am just confused. And I鈥檓 never confused with him.鈥

Aronofsky has similar praise for Lawrence鈥檚 acting. 鈥淚t鈥檚 such a raw, natural talent she has,鈥 he told Vogue. 鈥淚 always kind of compare her to Michael Jordan.鈥

We鈥檒l be able to see the kind of spark they can create together when mother! hits theaters on September 15.
