Now Jennifer Lawrence dreams about creating her own movie in which she is going to be a director. It is supposed to be a comedy: the place of action - mental hospital of 60s, in which LSD experiments are put, but at some point, something went wrong. Jen wanted to work as a director from 16 years. Now she realized she is ready.
With her perfect figure (Jennifer is 171 cm growth, weight - about 60 kg), and being recognized as a Hollywood star with one of the highest income, the actress was considered many times as the most sexy lady in the world. So in 2013, Jennifer was among the ten most beautiful people in the world by People Magazine. It is not surprising that she was asked to become the face of the bag line "Miss Dior” in an advertising company since 2013. And Jennifer was glad to accepted the proposal.
Despite the fact that the actress often participates in very intimate photo shoots, she has never appeared before the audience completely naked. The only exception is the film "X-Men: First Class," in which Jennifer had to play naked, but with the application of thick layers of makeup on the whole body.
However, on the night of September 1, 2014 there was a mass iCloud leakes of photos of an intimate nature. Eight Hollywood stars and charming Jennifer Lawrence was one of the hackers’ victims.
Initially, the network began to receive simple photos of celebrities. But in few days leaks of photos reached its peak. Apple's management was alarmed and negotiated with computer hooligans.
In 2011-2012 Jennifer had romantic relationship with Nicholas Hoult. They met at "X-Men: First Class" shooting. For some time people said that young couple is engaged and Jennifer is pregnant. Even photo of engagement ring appeared in the network. But the rumors were just rumors, as well as suspected pregnancy of a young actress. Two years later, the couple broke up.
As Lawrence says, the reason of their split has become her high fees. Her boyfriend couldn’t accept the fact that Jen was the highest paid Hollywood actress. According to the American tabloids, Lawrence for several years occupies the second place with the largest annual income after Angelina Jolie.
“Nobody invites me on a date, my Saturdays are lonely, guys are afraid of me”, - she said in one of the interviews.
Jen believes that men used to dominate in relationships, which she rejects.
When "Silver Linings Playbook" was released, there were rumors about relationships between Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper. But Bradley denied rumors, saying that he could be her father.
During shooting of three parts of the film "The Hunger Games' Jennifer Lawrence became close to the other main character - Josh Hutcherson, who was two years younger than Jennifer. During the work on the franchise actors immediately found a common language, they seemed to understand each other perfectly. People around them began to suspect that the artists share something more than just a joint project.
In fact it was only speculation. Jennifer and Josh felt themselves like brother and sister, who became close friends and were connected by a great sense of mutual support and the sense of humor. Thus, young artists were so fond of communicating with each other in the scenic area and sometimes it was difficult for them to play serious love scenes. The work was constantly hampered because of their laughter and jokes.

When the film was finished for the purposes of promotion the "Passengers", actors have to visit the most important premiere of the film in different parts of the world.
The happy couple gives the impression of lovers. Their gentle attitude to each other created rumors. But, according to Chris and Jen, they are just friends.
In winter 2016, Jennifer has been approved by one of the most famous film directors of our time, Darren Aronofsky, author of "Black Swan", and she got the main role in his new project “Untitled Darren Arafonski project". Until now, all the details of the new film are kept in secret.
Apparently, during the creative process of the shooting, the couple became close to each other. And only now, after nearly a year, lovers no longer hide their feelings from others and openly, without intrigue, appear in public together. According to Jennifer’s relatives, despite the fact that they have difference in twenty years, Darren and Jennifer interested in each other.
