Darren Aronofsky, Jennifer Lawrence’s ex-boyfriend, opened up to The Economist Radio on Thursday on the challenges of working with emotionally charged actors. When filming the movie Mother!, which he directed, Aronofsky revealed that Lawrence took the role to heart and had a hard time getting out of character even after filming had ended.


As reported by Inquisitr, the 27-year-old actress revealed that she sustained injuries on set. “I tore my diaphragm for hyperventilating. People thought I was beaten up so [I] want to clear it up that I did it to myself. It was my own doing.”


In response to this and wanting to clear the air, 49-year-old Aronofsky reported that it was Lawrence’s “loss of control” that caused the internal injury. He said that he encouraged her to “pull back” and wasn’t pushing her harder than he should on that day.

The producer further said that he works best with artists who are able to get out of character after he yells ‘cut.’ Aronofsky later admitted to pushing limits just a little too far to get the actor get deeper into their character, but he also maintained that it was an important part of the art.

“I work best with actors who, basically, when you say cut, it’s over and the emotion is gone, and when I say action, they’re able to go deep into it. I’ve never had that situation where an actor was so emotionally… um… overwhelmed by the material that they lost control and hurt themselves.”


Lawrence and Aronofsky started dating shortly before the filming of ‘Mother!, but tension grew after filming especially when the movie received mixed reactions from audiences and critics alike. Lawrence says that Aronofsky was too consumed with the criticism at one point and it became too draining for their relationship.

“We’d be on the [mother! press] tour together, I’d come back to the hotel and the last thing I want to talk about or think about is the movie, and he comes back and that’s all he wants to talk about.”

The two broke it off shortly after the movie’s release.
