Jennifer Lawrence Opens Up About Having Two Miscarriages And How Her Life ‘Started Over’ After Becoming A Mother

ytsfreeSeptember 7, 2022

Following her final performance as Mystique in 2019’s Dark Phoenix, Jennifer Lawrence was absent from the acting scene until she returned late last year as one of the ensemble players in the Adam McKay-helmed Netflix movie Don’t Look Up. As far as her personal life goes though, that’s been quite eventful, because in addition to marrying art gallery director Cooke Maroney in 2019, Lawrence had her first child earlier this year. Now, along with revealing the sex of the baby, Lawrence has opened up about having two prior miscarriages and how becoming a parent led to her life having “started over.”

In an extensive interview with Vogue, Jennifer Lawrence shared that she and Cooke Maroney have a son named Cy, who’s named after the postwar American painter Cy Twombly, whom Maroney likes. But carrying Cy wasn’t Lawrence’s first time being pregnant; that occurred in her early 20s, and while she’d planned to have an abortion at that time, she ended up miscarrying “alone in Montreal.” Years later, during the shooting of Don’t Look Up, the actress had her second miscarriage, which required her to get a D&C surgical procedure. At this point Lawrence was married and ready to have a child, and that ended up happening with Cy, but here’s what she had to say about people who don’t have a choice in in the matter. In her words:

I remember a million times thinking about it while I was pregnant. Thinking about the things that were happening to my body. And I had a great pregnancy. I had a very fortunate pregnancy. But every single second of my life was different. And it would occur to me sometimes: What if I was forced to do this?
