Like the rest of the world, we woke up to the news that Jennifer Lawrence is engaged. Also like the rest of the world, we asked ourselves, “Who the heck is Cooke Maroney?”
Here’s what we know about J.Law’s beau:
OK, this isn’t exactly a “new” romance, if you’re considering the whirlwind celeb engagements of late (Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Chris Pratt). Maroney and Lawrence have dated since last May, according to E! News. They were introduced by a mutual friend, Laura Simpson, whom Lawrence brought with her as a date to the 2014 Oscars.
He’s a 34-year-old art gallery director at Gladstone 64, an art gallery on New York City’s Upper East Side. Before that, he studied art history at New York University and worked at the prestigious Gagosian gallery, according to The Cut.
