If you haven't gone to see mother! yet and you are of a nervous disposition, gird your loins.

The film that stars Jennifer Lawrence is garnering mixed reviews and even got booed at an early screening because it was deemed so graphically horrifying.

The biblical thriller, which co-stars Javier Bardem and Michelle Pfeiffer, is full of terrifying surreal scenes that are not for the faint-hearted and was also how Lawrence and Director-Writer boyfriend Darren Aronofsky met.

Aronofsky is the acclaimed director of films such as Requiem For A Dream, The Wrestler, The Fighter, Black Swan and Noah. Unsurprisingly, Lawrence was always a fan and apparently said yes to mother! before she had even read the script.

However, her first impression of the much-praised director was quickly altered when she did come face to face with him.

During a press conference at the Toronto International Film Festival Entertainment Weekly reported that, prior to reading the script, she thought, 'He told me his ideas and I thought they were brilliant and unique and challenging. I've been a fan of his for years — I think he's bold and brave, and I think I said brilliant.'

But then, she read the script, 'when I read it I threw it across the room and told him he had severe psychological problems.'

Hmm, now we're no dating experts, but that doesn't sound like an ideal first thought at your soon-to-be boyfriend's work.

However, she couldn't help but qualify her thoughts on it, saying, 'but it's a masterpiece.'

The pair's relationship broke in the press in October last year, and the couple have been more-than effusive in their praise of the other's talents.

She has called his work a masterpiece and he said of her, she is 'a once-in-a-generation talent, and just a whirlwind and a hurricane and an earthquake and a thunderstorm of talent.'

Ohhh, well look at you two.
