Jennifer Lawrence has gushed about her fiancé Cooke Maroney, saying he is "the best person I've ever met in my whole life".

The Oscar-winning Hollywood star confirmed her engagement to the art dealer in February this year.

Lawrence has now opened up about her husband-to-be while speaking to Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet for her new film X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

When asked how she knew he was "the one", Lawrence divulged: "Well, he's just the best person I've ever met in my whole life.

"It was a very, very easy decision."

The couple were first romantically linked in June 2018, and news of their engagement broke in February.

Reports in the US say they were introduced by Lawrence's friend Laura Simpson.

The actress split from director Darren Aronofsky in November 2017.
