Jennifer Lawrence says she knew she wanted to marry Cooke Maroney when they met

Jennifer Lawrence knew she wanted to get married – fiancee Cooke Maroney the moment they met.

The Oscar-winning actress, 28, announced her engagement to the art gallery director, 34, in February after only eight months of dating, and said she immediately realized that he was the one she wanted to spend the rest of her life with.

The American Hustle star admitted that although she initially didn't think she was in a place in her life where she wanted to settle, she can't wait to be legally tied to her & # 39; favorite person & # 39; Cooke & # 39; forever & # 39 ;.

She said: & # 39; He is the greatest person I have ever met. It really is him, and he's getting better. I started with the basics. "How do I feel? Is he nice, is he friendly?"

& # 39; It's just, this is it, I know that sounds stupid, but he's just the greatest person I've ever met, so I feel very honored to be a Maroney.

& # 39; I was not in a place where I thought "I am ready to get married". I just met Cooke and I wanted to marry him. We wanted to marry each other, we wanted to be fully committed. He is my best friend, so I want to legally bind him to me forever.

& # 39; Fortunately, there is paperwork for such a thing. It is the best. You find your favorite person on the planet, you think, "You can't leave". & # 39;

The actress said she doesn't feel nervous about her big day because she & # 39; is too lazy to be neurotic & # 39; and revealed that she has already found both her dress and wedding location.

On her friend Catt Sadler's Naked podcast, she said: & I've been in a good place. I have not been neurotic about it. I'm too lazy to be neurotic.

& # 39; I saw a dress that I liked and I thought, "That's the dress." I saw a location and I thought "cool, we have the location". & # 39;

But Jennifer admitted she had a & # 39; Bridezilla moment & # 39; when none of her friends could hold her bachelor party in the short term.

She said: “Yesterday was my only Bridezilla moment where I was crying, because I thought I didn't want a bachelor party, and at the last minute I decided I did.

& # 39; Then nobody was available because it was at the last minute. And then I started crying. I thought, "I don't even know why I'm crying, I didn't know I wanted a bachelor party."

& # 39; I think I just feel sad. (Cooke) said, "Oh my god, you don't have to feel pathetic". & # 39;

Jennifer and Cooke were introduced by Jennifer & # 39; s best friend Laura Simpson and have been together for a year.

Cooke works in the Gladstone Gallery in New York, where artists such as the father of Lena Dunham, Carroll Dunham, as well as Richard Prince, Anish Kapoor and Bjork & # 39; s ex, Matthew Barney, are represented.

He is known in the art festival scene and previously worked in the prestigious Gagosian gallery.

The romance began just months after Jennifer separated from Mother! director Darren Aronofsky, 50, in November 2017 after a year-long relationship.

It was claimed that their age gap caused problems, as well as that Jennifer admitted that they could never stop talking about work.

Prior to her romance with the director, Jennifer left Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, 42, for four months.

The couple were together from August 2014 – just five months after Chris' ex-wife, Gwyneth Paltrow, asked for divorce – until October 2014.

Chris and Jennifer reunited in December 2014, but called it final in August 2015.

Jennifer & # 39; s longest relationship was with her co-star Nicholas Hoult, 29; the couple was on and off for five years after meeting each other in 2010 on the set of X-Men First Class.

The actress has been open about her journey to finding the one in previous interviews and told Vogue in 2015: “I can't wait to get married.

& # 39; I feel like I find that one person I want to spend the rest of my life with, who I want to be the father of my children with, that I absolutely don't want to brush it up, & # 39; before I stop: & # 39; But I don't benefit from that either. & # 39;
