Jennifer Lawrence and Darren Aronofsky are still spending time together despite breaking up.

The two were spotted taking a walk together in New York City on Wednesday. The pair appeared to be in good spirits during their afternoon stroll.

Lawrence and Aronofsky split in November after over a year of dating and just two months after the release of their movie mother!

“Once they are onto new projects and interests, it’s harder to keep up relationships of any kind,” a show business source told PEOPLE. “They were never destined for marriage. They had fun, shared many beliefs, and enjoyed what they could learn from each other.”

A source close to the pair suggests the age difference between the Oscar winner, 26, and the producer-director, 48, played a key role in the split.


“There is a huge age difference, and they are different people,” the insider says. “Each has to look practically to the future. Jen has yet to figure out her life and how it will evolve. He has responsibilities in life that she has yet to experience.”

Since getting together in September 2016, Lawrence and Aronofsky kept their relationship private, only making their public debut as a couple at the Venice Film Festival photocall nearly one year later.

Less than two weeks before PEOPLE confirmed their split, they were seen cozying up at the 2017 Governors Ball.
