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.
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.”
