In case you haven't noticed due to the fact that she's super low-key, Jennifer Lawrence has a new fiance. And unlike her previous boyfriends (i.e. Chris Martin, Nicholas Hoult, and Darren Aronofsy), he's not famous.
In fact, Cooke Maroney, 33, is a total normal like the rest of us (JK, I am in no way normal), so tracking down information about him was tough. But I didn't spend my childhood reading approximately 4,000 volumes of Nancy Drew for nothing, so behold: everything you need to know about JLaw's new guy.
HE WORKS IN THE NYC ~ART SCENE~
Cooke studied art history at New York University, and now holds a job as a director at Gladstone 64, which is the Gladstone Gallery's Upper East Side location (for those of you who don't live in NYC and didn't watch Gossip Girl, that is a very fancy area). Apparently, this dude reps several famous art clients, including Lena Dunham's dad Carroll! So that means Cooke probably knows Lena, right? Right, okay, stay with me.
HE AND JLAW MET THROUGH A FRIEND
Look, I'm not saying that friend is Lena. But I'm not not saying that friend is Lena. Actually just kidding, JLaw and Cooke reportedly met through Jennifer's best friend Laura Simpson, and started dating back in May. Whateva.
HE'S ON INSTAGRAM
But his account is private. Go ahead and friend Cooke if you want to, but don't expect him to approve the request if your username is JenniferLawrenceFan4Eva. God speed.
HE'S COOL WITH HER EX-BOYFRIENDS
Cooke and Jennifer attended the premiere of her ex Nicholas Hoult’s new movie The Favourite—and fun fact: Darren Aronofsky was also there.
HE LIKES TO PARTY
A source told The Cut that Cooke "goes to a lot of art-world parties," but he stays pretty chill. "He’s definitely fun-loving but I wouldn’t say he’s out of control," the source said. "He likes to have fun, a young [good-looking] New York guy who likes to participate and have fun. When we would hang out, we would definitely drink; we would have fun." If you're confused by what this source meant when he/she said "participate," me too.
Here he is (on the left) at one of said parties:
AND FINALLY, HIS PARENTS OWN A FARM
A truly deep internet dive lead me to discover Oliver Hill Farm in Vermont, which is owned by Cooke's parents, James Maroney and Suki Fredericks. According to a Medium profile from 2015, Mr. Maroney was an art dealer in Manhattan (and held a tenure as the Senior Vice-President & Head of American Paintings at Christie's) before he and his wife started the farm, which is where Cooke grew up. So! Cute!
