Jennifer Lawrence has only had one wobble about her wedding to Cooke Maroney so far. This, she tells Catt Sadler on the former E! News host’s Naked podcast, is down to the fact that she’s “too lazy” to get neurotic and she knew her art director fiancé was “the one” from the get-go.
“I haven’t talked about [my relationship] yet in an interview setting,” Lawrence began. “I definitely wasn’t at a place where I was like, ‘I’m ready to get married.’ I just met Cooke and I wanted to marry him. We wanted to marry each other. We wanted to commit fully. He’s my best friend so I want to legally bind him to me forever. And fortunately, the paperwork exists for such a thing. It’s the greatest. You find your favourite person in the planet and you’re like, you can’t leave. So I wanted to take that offer.”

The Hunger Games star also revealed that it was Maroney who helped her overcome her anxiety around the paparazzi. “I’d get nervous before going to restaurants, or I felt like I couldn’t go to dive bars,” Lawrence explained. “I didn’t want to tell him about [it]. You know, I wanted to be normal and cool, so I just kind of hid that part of me and everything ended up being fine. And I was like, ‘Oh, I can do this’. It was cool.”
New York’s Power Couple Jennifer & Cooke Continue Their Engagement Celebrations
Wedding plans for Lawrence and Maroney, who were first linked in June, are well underway. “I’ve been in a good place,” she said. “I haven’t been neurotic about it… I saw a dress I liked and I was like, ‘That’s the dress’. I saw a venue and I was like, ‘Cool, we got the venue’.”
The hiccup came regarding the hen party. “I didn’t realise that I wanted one until… I realised I couldn’t have it, which is typical.” She cried about it to her partner and then moved on. “Bridezilla moment” over. The fact that it was too “last minute” to organise the bachelorette celebration suggests the big day could be just around the corner.
