Jennifer Lawrence is opening for the first time about her relationship with Darren Aronofsky.

The 26-year-old actress started dating the 48-year-old director after the two wrapped filming on the intense Mother! movie. “We had energy,” she tells the September issue of Vogue magazine. “I had energy for him. I don’t know how he felt about me.”

This is the most Lawrence has spoken about Aronofsky since calling him a "visionary" during an interview with Vanity Fair last year. Upon watching Mother!, the Oscar winner says she was "reminded all over again how brilliant" the filmmaker was at his job. "For the past year, I’ve been dealing with him as just a human," she notes, further praising Aronofsky for being an "amazing father" to the child he shares with actress Rachel Weisz.

"I’ve been in relationships before where I am just confused," Lawrence continues. "And I’m never confused with him.”

While Lawrence doesn't comment on their 22-year age difference, she does address Aronofsky's Ivy League education. “I normally don’t like Harvard people, because they can’t go two minutes without mentioning that they went to Harvard,” she quips. “He’s not like that.”

Lawrence also admits that her boyfriend doesn't share her love of reality television. "He just finds it so vastly disappointing."

Aronofsky is equally in awe of Lawrence. “It’s such a raw, natural talent she has," he tells Vogue. "I always kind of compare her to Michael Jordan.”

The couple first sparked romance rumors when they were spotted kissing in New York City last November. Check out their PDA-filled night out:
