'Mother!' Filming Was So Intense Jennifer Lawrence Dislocated A Rib

We don't know much about acclaimed director Darren Aronofsky's upcoming psychological horror Mother!, in fact the whole thing has been shrouded in secrecy.

What we do know, however, is that the filming must have been seriously intense; so intense that it caused Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence to injure herself and tell the director/her boyfriend to 'go fuck yourself'.

Right in the middle of shooting a particularly stressful scene, Lawrence revealed that she hyperventilated so much and so aggressively that she dislocated a rib.

"I ended up getting on oxygen," she recalled in a cover story for Vogue's September Issue. "I have oxygen tubes in my nostrils, and Darren's like, 'It was out of focus; we've got to do it again.' And I was just like, 'Go fuck yourself'."

The actress also talked openly for the first time about her relationship with the Black Swan and Requiem For A Dream director.

She said: "I've been in relationships before where I am just confused. And I'm never confused with him.

"I normally don't like Harvard people," she said, referencing Aronofsky's elite education. "Because they can't go two minutes without mentioning that they went to Harvard. He's not like that."

It was not long after filming for Mother! Wrapped that rumours began circulating that the pair were an item.

"We had energy," Lawrence said. "I had energy for him. I don't know how he felt about me."

Despite their age gap and his disapproval of her obsession with reality TV, Aronofsky and Lawrence seem to make a pretty good couple.

While little has been said about the film itself, Lawrence has revealed that upon seeing it she thought it was beautifully shot, having previously being concerned it might have been a bit too dark.

"When I saw the movie, I was reminded all over again how brilliant he is," she says of Aronofsky. "For the past year, I've been dealing with him as just a human."

"I think [Mother!] works as a truthful, realistic relationship movie but also works on an allegorical plane, too," the Brooklyn-native director told Vogue.

"Different people will see it different ways, and I'm always inspired by films you remember and are still talking about a few days later."

He also revealed that he was thrilled to get Lawrence for the part, given the rigorous three-month rehearsal period.

"To get that type of commitment from an actor is hard," he says. "To get it from the biggest actors in the world is really, really hard. It was an amazing luxury to have that much time."
