(Newser) – Jennifer Lawrence gives a very J-Law-esque interview to Vogue (it involves, among other things, a funny story about crystals and Lawrence's refreshingly honest take on her recent critically-derided movie Passengers) in which she says that, while filming Darren Aronofsky's Mother!, things got so intense while filming she actually hyperventilated and ended up dislocating a rib. She had to be put on oxygen, "and Darren’s like, 'It was out of focus; we’ve got to do it again.' And I was just like, 'Go f--- yourself.'" Some of the crew ultimately made her an off-set "Kardashian tent" where she could watch her beloved reality TV and escape from the darkness of the film, which comes out Sept. 15. And yet despite all that, Lawrence and Aronofsky ended up dating after filming wrapped; they're still together a year later.

Aronofsky lauds Lawrence's "raw, natural talent" as being something akin to what Michael Jordan had going for him, while Lawrence says that, after a year of interacting with the director as "just a human," she recently watched the final cut of Mother! and was reminded "just how brilliant he is." He does not, however, understand her reality TV obsession—"I wasn't involved in that," he says of the Kardashian tent—which is a part of her personality he finds "so vastly disappointing," Lawrence says. Despite their age difference (she is 26; he is 48), the relationship seems to work. "I’ve been in relationships before where I am just confused. And I’m never confused with him," Lawrence says. But that's hardly all she discusses in the wide-ranging interview, which also covers the leak of her personal photos and Hollywood's gender pay gap. Full interview here.
