Jennifer Lawrence, 27, is no longer hiding her relationship with Cooke Maroney, 33, an art dealer and director of Gladstone Gallery in Manhattan.
On Wednesday, the Oscar-winning actress was spotted by ETOnline getting a piggyback ride from her new beau on her way back to her apartment.
J.Law, who was dressed in a green jacket and cropped khakis, was barefoot. Maroney, meanwhile, was casually dressed in a T-shirt and jeans. The couple had been last spotted out to dinner at a French bistro, with friends. "They [were] super cuddly throughout dinner —very affectionate and comfortable with each other," a source told ET. "She's really happy. She has nothing to hide."
Lawrence, who was last linked to Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky, has seemingly moved on, though the two remain on good terms. Last month, she presented her ex with an award at the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Gala, where the director was honored for his contributions to the world of art and film. In a recent Vanity Fair interview, the actress referred to Aronofsky as a "good friend" and said she was looking forward to collaborating with him again. The two worked on the thriller Mother! in 2017. The Hunger Games actress has also been linked in the past to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and X-Men co-star Nicholas Hoult.
Lawrence was last seen in Red Sparrow, in which she played a Russian intelligence officer sent to engage with a CIA agent. The actress will next star in Dark Phoenix, the twelfth installment in the X-Men series, with James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jessica Chastain, and Hoult, which is due out next year.
Maroney, who is an estimated 6 foot 4, represents a number of high-profile clients, including Richard Prince, Anish Kapoor, and Matthew Barney. “He’s definitely respected. He’s not a big player, but he’s a player,” a source said. The art dealer has been spotted out with several celebrities, such as Paris Hilton’s ex Stavros Niarchos and actor-designer Waris Ahluwalia.
Lawrence and Maroney reportedly met through the actress’ friend Laura Simpson a few weeks ago. “The relationship has been going on a few weeks. But they have been very private and careful not to be seen together,” a source told Page Six.
