"She wants to do a winter wedding, and whatever she wants, she gets," Bryan said on "After the Final Rose." Added Lindsay: "We're not rushing anything. We just want to build our lives together in a normal sense." She stressed that for them, being "normal" means coming out of hiding as a couple now that the finale has aired.

Jennifer Lawrence has finally opened up about her boyfriend of the last year, her "mother!" director, Darren Aronofsky. "We had energy. I had energy for him. I don't know how he felt about me," she says in a new cover story for Vogue that was released on Aug. 9. J.Law said they started dating after "mother!" wrapped and that "for the past year, I've been dealing with him as just a human." She described Darren — who's 22 years her senior — as "brilliant," an "amazing father" (to son Henry with ex Rachel Weisz) and wonderfully direct at work and at home. "I've been in relationships before where I am just confused. And I'm never confused with him," Jennifer explained. She also praised him for not constantly bragging about where he went to college. "I normally don't like Harvard people, because they can't go two minutes without mentioning that they went to Harvard," she said, adding, "He's not like that." One thing the reality TV-loving (and Oscar-winning) actress and the director do not have in common, however, is a shared love of "The Real Housewives" franchise. "He just finds it so vastly disappointing," she said before laughing, Vogue reported.
