Jennifer Lawrence calls her film “Mother!” — directed by her boyfriend, Darren Aronofsky — “a masterpiece,” although she said she thought he had “problems” after she read his script.

“It was an instant yes before I even read anything,” the Oscar-winning Lawrence said during a news conference with Aronofsky at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sunday, according to People magazine.

In the film, Lawrence stars as the young wife of an older poet — played by Javier Bardem — who is tormented after the arrival of a couple of uninvited guests, portrayed by Michelle Pfeiffer and Ed Harris.

“He told me his ideas, and I thought they were brilliant and unique and challenging. I’ve been a fan of his for years,” said Lawrence, the star of the “Hunger Games” series.

Aronofsky’s other films include “Requiem for a Dream,” “Pi” and “Black Swan.”

“So once he told me the ideas floating around in his head, I said yes,” she continued. “Then I got a script, and when I read it, I threw it across the room and told him he had severe psychological problems. But it’s a masterpiece.”

Lawrence, 27, and Aronofsky, 48, reportedly began dating a year ago, shortly after wrapping up filming on “Mother!” It hits theaters on Friday.
