Based on how she talks about their experience on the press tour for their film mother! — just a few weeks before their split — it sounds like it was the beginning of the end.
As part of her conversation with Adam Sandler for Variety‘s Actors on Actors series, J.Law said she and her auteur boyfriend had a very different way of dealing with the critical reception of the film:
“We’d be on the tour together, I’d come back to the hotel and the last thing I want to talk about or think about is the movie, he comes back and that’s all he wants to talk about. And I get it, it’s his baby, he wrote it, he conceived it, he directed it. So I was doing double duty of trying to be a supportive partner while also being like, ├óΓé¼╦£Can I please, for the love of God, not think about mother! for one second?'”
Eesh! She does say she was still getting defensive of her man at the time, but that all sounds exhausting!
