After news broke that Jennifer Lawrence said yes to her beau Cooke Maroney’s proposal, the world is dying to know more about the man who will be her future husband. Look no further, because we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything you need to know about the Oscar winner’s bae.
1. He’s into art.
So much, in fact, that it’s his job. After studying art history at NYU, Cooke now works as the director at New York’s Gladstone Gallery, which represents high-profile clients like Lena Dunham’s father, Carroll Dunham, as well as Anish Kapoor, Richard Prince and Bjork’s ex-boyfriend Matthew Barney.
2. Like many celebs, they met through a mutual friend.
“Jen’s friends approve. Her bestie Laura Simpson is the one who introduced her to Cooke, but pals like Emma Stone, Brie Larson and Amy Schumer are all madly in love with him too,” a source told Life & Style. “They all absolutely knew about Jen’s engagement and kept it a secret until she was ready to come clean with the news herself.”
3. He likes the social scene.
He’s been seen with influencers like Paris Hilton’s ex Stavros Niarchos and actor-designer Waris Ahluwalia and enjoys going to high-end art openings in NYC. And it looks like he’s already celebrated his engagement to the beautiful blonde. The couple were seen at a restaurant laying low, but the rock on her finger stood out.
4. He’s pretty tall.
The actress is 5 foot 9, so chances are her boo is somewhere between 6’2 – 6’4. It’s no surprise though, as her past boyfriends like Chris Martin and Nicholas Hoult are both above six feet. Clearly she’s got a thing for big guys!
5. He’s 33 years old.
Cooke is five years older than his future bride, which is not an unreasonable age difference at all. The Hollywood starlet is a Leo, and while we’re not sure what Cooke’s astrological sign is yet, but by the way these two look at each other, it’s definitely a match.
