Given how fiercely she guards her private life, the fact that she talked about him at all is shocking!

Jennifer Lawrence covers the latest issue of Vanity Fair, and while most of the interview centered around her acting career and life in the spotlight, she did touch on her new director boyfriend Darren Aronofsky.

"He's a visionary," she gushed while discussing her decision to star in his upcoming horror movie Mother without even seeing the script.

The actress didn't hold back on the praise for her famous friend Emma Stone, either!

"I love my job. I don’t know what I would be without acting. So if there is someone who loves the same thing, it should bring us closer. But it depends on how that person is, and Emma is so normal and lovely. If I wasn’t her biggest fan, I would’ve Tonya Harding’d her in the kneecaps," she joked.

Just because the Oscar winner is beautiful, rich, and famous doesn't mean she doesn't wrestle with the occasional bout of self-doubt. "You get ready in your hotel, and you’re like, ‘I look awesome.' Then you walk outside, see the outfits and people who are, like, seven feet tall, and are like, ‘I am a piece of garbage. I’m not going out anymore," she confessed about her insecurities during a recent appearance at Paris Fashion Week.

She's known as one of the most bubbly, fun starlets in Hollywood, but she admits she's not all that nice if a fan bothers her in her daily life.

"You might think you know me, but when you approach me, you’re a total stranger to me, and I’m scared. I get very protective of my space. It took me a long time to be able to do that. But if I’m eating dinner, and somebody comes up, and a flash goes off from someone’s iPhone camera, I am really rude to that person. Then other people at the restaurant will see and be like, ‘Oh, damn, I don’t want to do that.’ Privacy is a full-time job, and I work very hard at it," she revealed.

We couldn't love her more if we tried!
