Jennifer Lawrence is about to walk down the aisle this weekend — but the big scoop here is what she and her guests will feast on … a smorgasbord of fancy eats and drinks.
We got some deets on JLaw’s wedding — which is going down Saturday at a swanky venue in Rhode Island, 8 months after she got engaged. We gotta say, for a relatively short engagement … they’ve put together a pretty elaborate affair.
Clearly, Jen and hubby-to-be Cooke Maroney pulled out all the stops … hiring celeb wedding planner Mark Seed to do the party for about 150 people.
Let’s start with the grub, shall we? According to the menu, folks are gonna have their pick from a variety of hors d’oeuvres …
— sweet potato flat cakes
— brussels sprouts with cured egg yolk
— smoked pork belly with pickled apple
— salt cod beignet
Moving on to the main course options — here’s what Jen and Cooke, or their hired help, will be serving up …
— either wood-roasted fish with herbs and lemon-infused butter OR …
— 5-week-aged leg of beef with forager’s sauce.
There are veggies too — heirloom roasted carrots, smoked new potatoes, whey braised cabbage … blah, blah, blah. Let’s get to the good good.
Dessert’s coming in hot!
— fire-baked sourdough bread pudding with chocolate
— salted caramel and fresh apple
— cauldron fritters with bourbon cream and cinnamon sugar
— house-made marshmallow s’mores.
They have S’MORES, y’all.
As for drinks, specialty cocktails appear to boil down to either a bourbon old-fashioned or gin cucumber lavender champagnes … served at a cash bar. JK!!!
Like we said, it’s gonna be extravagant. Dare we say … decadent???
Happy 29th Birthday J-Law!
‘The Young Pope’ filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino will direct the adaptation for Makeready.
Jennifer Lawrence and The Young Pope director Paolo Sorrentino are teaming on Mob Girl, a feature adaptation of a true-crime story for Makeready, the content studio founded by Brad Westson.
Lawrence will star in and also produce the adaptation of the book by Teresa Carpenter along with Justine Polsky via the duo’s banner, Excellent Cadaver, Makeready said Wednesday. Sorrentino and Lorenzo Mieli will also produce.
Angelina Burnett, a writer-producer who has worked on such shows as The Americans and Halt and Catch Fire, has been hired to pen the script.
Mob Girl centers on Arlyne Brickman, a woman who grew up among racketeers and mobsters on the Lower East Side of New York City. From dating the wise guys to then running errands for them, she became a “mob girlfriend” who then wanted a piece of the action herself. She eventually became a police informant and major witness in the government’s case against the Colombo crime family.
“Seeing this story from a woman’s point of view is a fresh and exciting approach to telling a classic mob story,” said Weston in a statement.
Makeready partner and head of film Pam Abdy and Natalie Williams will oversee for the studio.
Mob Girl marks the first project under the recently announced first-look film deal between Lawrence’s Excellent Cadaver and Makeready. Lawrence is currently shooting A24’s untitled soldier drama, which is being helmed by stage director turned first-time filmmaker Lila Neugebauer. Lawrence and Polsky are producing the feature along with Scott Rudin and Eli Bush.
Sorrentino and Miele produced The Young Pope, which starred Jude Law, for HBO. The duo are currently in production on the follow-up, The New Pope, with John Malkovich joining the Law-led cast. Both series were created and directed by Sorrentino.
Lawrence is repped by LBI Entertainment and Hansen Jacobson. Sorrentino is repped by UTA. Burnett is repped by Manage-ment and Gang Tyre. ICM Partners repped the author in the book deal.
Hello everyone! I know I haven’t updated the site in such a long time but that will change. My love for Jennifer is still very strong and she’s also has been taking a small break from The Hollywood scene. I’m glad to announce that I’ve added several HQ photos of Jennifer attending last month the X-Men Dark Phoenix premiere. She looked amazing!

Jennifer Lawrence is engaged to boyfriend Cooke Maroney, a rep for the actress confirms to PEOPLE.
The Oscar winner, 28, was spotted wearing a “massive ring” while enjoying what appeared to be a celebratory dinner with Maroney, 34, at Raoul’s, an upscale French restaurant in New York City, according to Page Six.
“It was a giant rock. They seemed like they were celebrating and people were talking about it,” a source told the outlet. “The ring was very noticeable. They were sitting back in a corner. She was wearing a cute black dress with white polka dots.”
The couple got cozy during a date on Saturday in New York City. A few days earlier, the happy couple was spotted on another date in the West Village, all bundled up to battle freezing temperatures.
A source confirmed to PEOPLE in June the actress was dating Maroney. Since then, the two haven’t shied away from going on dates in public together. In late June, the couple was photographed enjoying a romantic candlelit dinner in New York City.
They followed up their date with a trip to Paris and later Rome in August. A source told PEOPLE the couple “seemed happy, occasionally holding hands” while in the French capital.
The insider noted the couple stayed at The Ritz hotel while on their “very short trip” and that they mostly “went walking together.”
In September, Lawrence took Maroney with her to the New York Film Festival premiere of The Favourite — which stars her ex Nicholas Hoult and one of her best friends, Emma Stone. Also in attendance was Lawrence’s ex Darren Aronofsky.
