Jennifer Lawrence has said that although she hasn't been "neurotic" about planning her big day, she has had one "bridezilla" moment.

The Hollywood star confirmed her engagement to art gallery director Cooke Maroney in February.

She has been quite private about their relationship to date but recently gushed of her fiancé "he's just the best person".

Now, the 28-year-old Oscar winner has opened up about their decision to tie the knot in an interview with her friend Catt Sadler's Naked podcast.

She said: "He's the greatest human being I've ever met. He really is, and he gets better.

"I started with the basics. 'How do I feel? Is he nice? Is he kind?' It's just - this is the one, I know that sounds really stupid but he's just, he's - you know. He's the greatest person I've ever met, so I feel very honored to become a Maroney.

"I wasn't at a place where I was like, 'I'm ready to get married.' I just met Cooke and I wanted to marry him. We wanted to marry each other, we wanted to commit fully. He's my best friend, so I want to legally bind him to me forever."

She continued jokingly: "Fortunately, the paperwork exists for such a thing. It's the greatest. You find your favourite person on the planet, you're like: 'You can't leave.'"

The X-Men star said she is isn't feeling nervous about their wedding because she's so "lazy" and said she has already found her dress and the venue.

Lawrence said: "I've been in a good place. I haven't been neurotic about it. I'm like too lazy to be neurotic. I saw a dress I liked and I was like, 'That's the dress.' I saw a venue and I was like, 'Cool, we got the venue.' ''

However, she admitted she had one "bridezilla" moment when none of her friends could make her hen party at short notice.

"Yesterday was my only bridezilla moment where I cried, because I thought I didn't want to have bachelorette party, and then last minute I decided I did", she explained.

"Then nobody was available because it was last minute. And then I started crying. I was like, 'I don't even know why I'm crying. I didn't know that I wanted a bachelorette party. I guess I just feel pathetic.' [Cooke] was like, 'Oh my god, you don't need to feel pathetic.' "

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.
