Who Is Jennifer Lawrence’s Fiance, Cooke Maroney?
Wedding bells will soon be ringing for Jennifer Lawrence as her rep has confirmed that she is engaged. The actress dated some famous men in the past from Nicholas Hoult to Chris Martin to Darren Aronofsky but her fiancé’s name is not one many people will recognize.
The Hunger Games star has been dating Cooke Maroney since May 2018. The two have been pretty private about their romance but now that they’re engaged her fans are curious about who he is. Here are a few things we know about JLaw’s man including what happened when he was at the same event as two of her exes.
How they met
Several months after Lawrence split from Aronofsky, Page Six reported that she was dating Maroney who she was introduced to by her best friend, Laura Simpson.
“The relationship has been going on a few weeks,” an insider told the publication at the time. “But they have been very private and careful not to be seen together.”
What Maroney does for a living
Maroney is from Vermont where his parents own a dairy farm. He went to New York University for college and studied art history. Today, he is an art director at Gladstone Gallery in New York City. The gallery represents some high-profile clients including Lena Dunham’s father, Carroll Dunham, as well as Richard Prince, Anish Kapoor, and Bjork’s ex-boyfriend, Matthew Barney.
Before Gladstone, Maroney worked at the city’s famed Gagosian Gallery.
He’s not intimidated by Lawrence’s exes
Maroney proved he’s not intimidated by Lawrence’s former beaus when he attended a New York Film Festival premiere of The Favourite, which starred her ex
“I’m friends with all my exes, actually,” Lawrence previously told WTF with Marc Maron. “For the most part, yeah, I have a theory: I think it’s because I’m blunt. 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.”
They recently moved in together
In January 2019 Us Weekly reported that the couple had moved in together and shortly after that buzz about a possible engagement began. Those rumors went into overdrive in early February when JLaw was seen sporting a diamond ring on that finger while the two were out having dinner. A diner who ate at that same restaurant told Page Six that you couldn’t miss Lawrence’s ring and the pair looked like they were celebrating.
“It was a giant rock. They seemed like they were celebrating and people were talking about it. The ring was very noticeable. They were sitting back in a corner. She was wearing a cute black dress with white polka dots,” the eyewitness said.
The mother! actress’ rep later confirmed that they are in fact engaged.
