Before the breakup, Jennifer opened up about their relationship to The Hollywood Reporter's "Awards Chatter" podcast, saying, “I had a crush on him when he pitched to me, and that was a year before we started rehearsing. But he was a professional, which only made it worse for me. We just kind of formed a friendship. He knew how I felt; he never told me how he felt. I mean, I assumed. And then friendship turned into a partnership once we started working. And when the movie ['Mother!'] was done, I was like, 'All right, you're my boyfriend.'"
