Lawrence opens up

about her boyfriend


NEW YORK — Jennifer Lawrence has opened up about her relationship with director Darren Aronofsky.

Aronofsky directed Lawrence in “mother!” which was shot last year and comes to theaters next month.

Lawrence tells Vogue magazine she and Aronofsky began dating after filming wrapped up. She says she likes Aronofsky’s directness, saying she’s “never confused with him.”

One point of contention in the relationship is the Oscar-winning actress’ reality television obsession, which she says Aronofsky finds “vastly disappointing.”

Lawrence appears in four different cover shots for the magazine. One is of an oil painting of her, done by artist John Currin.

Tatum dances with gas station cashier


STATESVILLE, N.C. — Channing Tatum hosted an impromptu dance party in a convenience store at a North Carolina gas station.

The “Magic Mike” star stopped by the Sunoco in the town of Statesville last week for some coffee and a candy bar.

He bantered with the cashier and later danced with her to the tune of Nas’ “If I Ruled The World.”

Tatum joked with some puzzled customers that he was the store manager. He took time to snap a photo with a fan.

The episode was streamed to Tatum’s fans via Facebook Live.

Tatum is promoting his upcoming film, “Logan Lucky,” which centers on a heist at a North Carolina NASCAR race.
