Jen: Dump­ing Mates For New Man?

She’s be­sot­ted with her new di­rec­tor beau and that means she’s not re­turn­ing every­one’s callsé

Look (UK) - - NEWS STORY -

We’ve all had a friend who starts dat­ing some­one new and sud­denly she’s not an­swer­ing your What­sapp mes­sages, she’s flak­ing on your nights out and be­fore you know it it’s been months since you’ve seen her.

Well, we’re a lit­tle wor­ried about Jen­nifer Lawrence, 26, be­cause the ac­tress seems to be switch­ing up her in­ner cir­cle for her new di­rec­tor love in­ter­est, 47-year-old Dar­ren Aronof­sky.

‘It’s very clear she wants to im­press him,’ says an in­sider who was on set with the star. ‘He’s a very se­ri­ous guy. He’s 20 years older than her and that's made a huge dif­fer­ence.’

One no­tice­able ab­sence in Jen’s life is come­di­enne Amy Schumer, 35, who’s been close mates with the ac­tress since they met in 2015. Jen re­vealed: ‘I emailed [Amy] af­ter I saw Train­wreck and said: “I don’t know where to get started. I guess I should just say it: ‘I’m in love with you.’” We started email­ing and then email­ing turned to tex­ting.’

Be­fore long the pair were pic­tured hol­i­day­ing to­gether, hang­ing out at The Golden Globes and even on stage at a Billy Joel con­cert, but it’s been months since the pair were spot­ted to­gether.

Amy and Jen had been work­ing on writ­ing a movie to­gether (‘We have an of­fi­cial first draft,’ Jen said back in Jan­uary. ‘I’m go­ing to try to fit it in’) but the project stalled af­ter Jen ap­par­ently changed her en­tire film­ing sched­ule to ac­com­mo­date her Pas­sen­gers role with Dar­ren. Awks. Added to that, J-law’s been pretty vo­cal about her friend­ship with Emma Stone. In a re­cent in­ter­view with Van­ity Fair, Jen ad­mit­ted the pair ‘text ev­ery day’, a com­ment that in­sid­ers say is a clear dig at her for­mer friend. ‘A year ago that would’ve been Amy who Jen­nifer was go­ing on about,’ says a source. ‘Now its all about Emma.’

Dar­ren and Jen have been see­ing each other for sev­eral months, con­firm­ing their ro­mance when they were seen kiss­ing on a New York street cor­ner last month. Ac­cord­ing to our sources, Jen is smit­ten with the di­rec­tor and thinks he’s The One, call­ing him ‘a vi­sion­ary’ in a re­cent chat.

‘They’re talk­ing a lot and are still very much to­gether but they don’t need to be in con­stant con­tact for her to feel se­cure,’ says our source. ‘Jen­nifer is so in love, much more con­fi­dent th­ese days and she’s very happy with the way things are go­ing.’

We’re happy for you, we re­ally are, Jen, but let’s not drop the ‘mates over dates’ rule. Oh, and you might want to read the be­low…
