Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Dar­ren Aronof­sky bribed stu­dents to vote for Hil­lary Clin­ton by of­fer­ing FaceTime calls with Jen­nifer Lawrence. The ‘Hunger Games’ ac­tress’ di­rec­tor boyfriend was seen at the Duke Univer­sity in North Carolina on Tues­day ral­ly­ing around to get votes for the 69-year-old Amer­i­can politi­cian, who ul­ti­mately lost out to Don­ald Trump in the US elec­tion. One fan took to Twit­ter to share a pic­ture of the 47-year-old ac­tor hold­ing his phone with the 26-yearold beauty in a dress­ing gown video mes­sag­ing a fan on the video con­fer­enc­ing app. Along­side the pic­ture, the user with the Twit­ter han­dle @EthanUdell, wrote:”I just ca­su­ally FaceTimed with Jen­nifer Lawrence. Dar­ren Aronof­sky is the man (sic)” Ethan said Dar­ren and his beau shared banter over the phone about how the Jen­nifer should “vol­un­teer to save the coun­try”. He told Us Weekly mag­a­zine: “She was su­per cool and friendly. They cracked a cou­ple of jokes. “Some­one cracked a joke about how with this elec­tion com­ing up we need her to vol­un­teer as trib­ute to save the coun­try.” An­other Twit­ter user wrote: “When Jen­nifer Lawrence’s boyfriend is on cam­pus brib­ing stu­dents to go vote in ex­change for a FaceTime with her (sic)” The ‘Black Swan’ film­maker had also of­fered lifts to the col­lege’s bal­lot of­fice. He tweeted: “His­tory will be made in #north­carolina. join me to­mor­row at DUKE univer­sity chapel 1130-5pm to get a ride to the polls #dukevotes #imwith­her. (sic)” Ethan told E! News: “Dar­ren flew in this morn­ing from New York to try to get more stu­dents to vote, since North Carolina is a swing state and duke had its low­est stu­dent early vot­ing num­bers since 2008. They walked around pro­mot­ing vot­ing all day. “[Dar­ren] even called cars for kids to head to the vot­ing location.” De­spite the di­rec­tor’s best ef­forts, Trump nar­rowly ob­tained vic­tory in the state.
