It seems like Jennifer Lawrence and Darren Aronofsky have taken their romance to a new level as the couple were spotted kissing during a romantic dinner date in New York City on Wednesday (2 November).

According to The Daily Mail, The Hunger Games actress and the Black Swan director were spotted enjoying an intimate dinner date in New York.

For the outing, the 26-year-old actress was dressed in a black knee-length coat, which she paired with blue jeans, suede ankle boots and a scarf, while the 47-year-old sported a light blue shirt, light grey trousers, a scarf and a flat cap.

The photos, published by the news website, show the couple kissing and holding hands while taking a stroll.

The couple was also spotted over the weekend when they took Lawrence's dog for a walk. According to E! News, the couple was seen sharing a lollipop at that time.

Lawrence's seems to be "relaxed" around Aronofsky, People previously reported.

Aronofsky is "very low-key", a source had told the celebrity news website. "He does not seem like a person who enjoys being a celebrity. Jennifer is the same," source added.

Lawrence was previously linked to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin following the musician's split from Gwyneth Paltrow.

"She [Jennifer Lawrence] struggled when she dated Chris [Martin] and seemed very stressed out," a source had said. "With Darren, it will probably be different. He does not attract attention like Chris does."

Darren was previously married to Rachel Weisz. The duo split in 2010 after nine years together.
