Jennifer Lawrence recalls ‘stressful’ wedding, asking Robert De Niro to ‘go home’

Jennifer Lawrence is opening up about her “stressful” 2019 wedding, which included asking fellow actor Robert De Niro to leave the rehearsal dinner.

Lawrence, 33, spoke to E! News at the Golden Globes Sunday where she joked that being a bride is “awful” and “so stressful.”

“You’re not having fun. You’re just like, ‘Is that person having fun?'” she continued.

“I was freaking out about the guests being cold, and all of my friends were lying they’re like, ‘Nobody’s cold, nobody’s cold, everything’s fine, everything’s fine.

My mom was like, ‘It’s freezing out there, your grandmother almost died.'”

Lawrence wed art dealer Cooke Maroney in October in 2018, the actor’s representative Liz Mahoney confirmed to USA TODAY at the time.

The ceremony took place at a mansion in Newport, Rhode Island, according to People and the Associated Press.

Jennifer Lawrence recalled asking her colleague Robert De Niro to leave her rehearsal dinner.

Her final straw during her rehearsal dinner is when she noticed De Niro looked out of place.

Lawrence and the 80-year-old actor have starred in several films together including 2012’s “Silver Linings Playbook,” 2013’s “American Hustle” and 2015’s “Joy.”

“I looked over and I saw Bob, who doesn’t know anybody and he’s kind of wandering around, and I immediately was like, ‘No, this isn’t what he wants to be doing. I don’t want him here,'” Lawrence recalled.

“So I went over and whispered, I was like, ‘Go home’ and he was nice — he talked to my parents and was polite — but I was like, ‘Go.'”

Jennifer Lawrence and Robert De Niro have worked on numerous films together.

De Niro did end up leaving the party, which Lawrence said, “genuinely made me feel better.”

Lawrence and Maroney have since welcomed a baby boy, which she announced on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in May 2022.

In Vogue’s October 2022 cover profile, Lawrence revealed that her son’s name is Cy — named after one of her husband’s favorite artists, American painter Cy Twombly — but also noted she’s still figuring out the boundaries of what she’s comfortable sharing about her child.

“It’s so scary to talk about motherhood,” Lawrence said. “Only because it’s so different for everybody.

If I say, ‘It was amazing from the start,’ some people will think, ‘It wasn’t amazing for me at first,’ and feel bad,” she said.

She continued: “The morning after I gave birth, I felt like my whole life had started over.

Like, now is day one of my life. I just stared. I was just so in love. I also fell in love with all babies everywhere.

Newborns are just so amazing. They’re these pink, swollen, fragile little survivors. Now I love all babies. Now I hear a baby crying in a restaurant and I’m like, ‘Awwww, precious.'”
