    Jennifer Lawrence told Darren Aronofsky he has "severe psychological problems"

    The 27-year-old actress - who has been dating the 48-year-old filmmaker for a year - was instantly on board when approached to work with the "brilliant" director on his horror thriller 'mother!' but she admits the dark script left her questioning his sanity.


    Speaking at a press conference for the film at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) on Sunday (10.09.17), she said: "It was an instant yes before I even read anything. He told me his ideas and I thought they were brilliant and unique and challenging. I've been a fan of his for years -- I think he's bold and brave, and I think I said brilliant.

    "But I've been a fan, so once he told me the ideas floating around in his head I said yes. Then I got a script and when I read it I threw it across the room and told him he had severe psychological problems. But it's a masterpiece."

    Despite the tense nature of the film, Jennifer - who plays the pregnant wife of Javier Bardem's poet character - insists she had no problems shaking off the dark role at the end of the day.

    She said: "I don't really carry a lot around. Between 'action' and 'cut,' I like to shake it off and not dwell in a horrible place."

    But the Oscar-winning actress did admit it took her two days to overcome feeling starstruck by her beautiful co-star Michelle Pfeiffer, 59.

    She said: "I love Michelle. It took me two days to get over her beauty, and to go up to her and say hi. She's very normal. She's a mother. She's a very smart woman."
