Jen was first linked to director Darren Aronofsky in August 2016, when they were working together on Mother!. Their friendship turned romantic after filming wrapped, but they broke up after a year of dating in October 2017. Even though the couple were generally private about their romance, Jen did briefly talk about Darren in a previous interview with Vogue. "We had energy," she said. "I've been in relationships before where I am just confused. And I'm never confused with him."
