Jennifer Lawrence Has Doggy Date with Darren Aronofsky in N.Y.C.

The Image Direct

Jennifer Lawrence‘s new beau, Darren Aronofsky, seems to be hitting it off with one of the actress’s best friends — her lovable pooch, Pippa.

The Oscar-winning actress, 26, and the 47-year-old director were photographed taking Pippa for a stroll in N.Y.C. on Sunday. The couple held hands — and even shared a lollipop — as Lawrence held the reigns for Pippa.

A source close to Lawrence told PEOPLE that the duo have been seeing each other. “They’ve been hanging out and are casually dating,” says the insider.

Lawrence, dressed in a gray peacoat, and the Black Swan director kept a low profile in hats and sunglasses. A source previously told PEOPLE that, like Lawrence, the director “is very low-key.”

“He does not seem like a person who enjoys being a celebrity. Jennifer is the same,” adds the source.

The duo collaborated together on a still-untitled project starring Lawrence, Ed Harris and Javier Bardem. They were also photographed together in August enjoying lunch at a cafe.

Lawrence had previously been linked to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, whom she dated off and on from August 2014 to August 2015. Before Martin, Lawrence and her X-Men: First Class costar Nicholas Hoult had a nearly five-year romance beginning in 2010.

Aronofsky shares a 10-year-old son, Henry, with ex Rachel Weisz.
