Speaking to ET's Cameron Mathison the pair gushed about each other with Aronofsky declaring that Lawrence is "life".

He said:  "She's the only person who's allowed not to [wear black], 'cause she's life."

"Well, I think he's talking about my character, but I'm gonna pretend he's not," Lawrence replied with a smile.
