In an attempt to downplay the attention on their romance, the actress and the mother! director decided against posing as a couple at the Venice Film Festival Tuesday. Instead, Michelle Pfeiffer acted as a buffer between them, with Javier Bardem joining all three on the press line. After their photo call ended, Aronofsky, Bardem, Lawrence and Pfeiffer attended the premiere.
(Lawrence donned a dress from Giambattista Valli's Resort 2018 collection, while Pfeiffer—styled by Samantha McMille—modeled a Dolce & Gabbana dress and Broken English jewelry.)
Aronofsky's psychological horror film, which he wrote, follows a young woman (Lawrence) whose peaceful life with her husband (Bardem) at their home is disrupted by a cryptic couple (Ed Harris and Pfeiffer). The film's A-list cast also includes Domhnall Gleeson and Kristen Wiig.
