Darren Aronofsky bribes voters with Jennifer Lawrence FaceTime calls
Darren Aronofsky bribed students to vote for Hillary Clinton by offering FaceTime calls with Jennifer Lawrence.
The 'Hunger Games' actress' director boyfriend was seen at the Duke University in North Carolina on Tuesday (08.11.16) rallying around to get votes for the 69-year-old American politician, who ultimately lost out to Donald Trump in the US election.
One fan took to Twitter to share a picture of the 47-year-old actor holding his phone with the 26-year-old beauty in a dressing gown video messaging a fan on the video conferencing app.
Alongside the picture, the user with the Twitter handle @EthanUdell, wrote:"I just casually FaceTimed with Jennifer Lawrence. Darren Aronofsky is the man (sic)"
Ethan said Darren and his beau shared banter over the phone about how the Jennifer should "volunteer to save the country".
He told Us Weekly magazine: "She was super cool and friendly. They cracked a couple of jokes.
"Someone cracked a joke about how with this election coming up we need her to volunteer as tribute to save the country."
Another Twitter user wrote: "When Jennifer Lawrence's boyfriend is on campus bribing students to go vote in exchange for a FaceTime with her (sic)"
The 'Black Swan' filmmaker had also offered lifts to the college's ballot office.
He tweeted: "History will be made in #northcarolina. join me tomorrow at DUKE university chapel 1130-5pm to get a ride to the polls #dukevotes #imwithher. (sic)"
Ethan told E! News: "Darren flew in this morning from New York to try to get more students to vote, since North Carolina is a swing state and duke had its lowest student early voting numbers since 2008. They walked around promoting voting all day.
"[Darren] even called cars for kids to head to the voting location."
Despite the director's best efforts, Trump narrowly obtained victory in the state.
