She's newly-single after it emerged this week she parted ways from her boyfriend of one year, Darren Aronofsky, a month ago.

And Jennifer Lawrence was seeking comfort in a female friend as she stepped out on a low-key stroll in New York City on Wednesday as news of the split emerged.

The Oscar-winning actress, 27, kept a low profile as she headed out in Manhattan with her pet pooch, attempting to go under the radar by wearing sunglasses and a felt fedora pulled down over her face.

The former couple were last seen as a pair when they sat together at the Governor's Awards earlier this month, even though they had already parted ways.

The couple have been low-key about their romance, which started more than a year ago when they started dating after filming wrapped for psychological thriller Mother!. 

The thriller was directed and written by Aronofsky, with Jennifer starring alongside Michelle Pfeiffer and Javier Bardem.   

The couple made their hotly-anticipated red carpet debut at the Venice Film Festival in September 2017.

Jennifer recently revealed she harbored a crush on Darren long before they started officially working together.

'I had a crush on him when he pitched to me, and that was like a year before we started rehearsing, but he was a professional, which only made it worse for me,' she recently told The Hollywood Report's Awards Chatter podcast. 

Eventually their friendship turned romantic. 

She added: 'So we just kind of formed a friendship. He knew how I felt, he never told me how he felt.

'I mean, I assumed - but we just formed a friendship, and then the friendship turned into a partnership for the movie once we started working. 

'And then, when the movie was done, I was like, "Alright, you're my boyfriend!" And he was like, "Alright, I'm your boyfriend."'

While the couple privately started dating in September 2016, Jennifer insisted they had 'energy' from the moment they met in an interview with the new issue of Vogue magazine.

'We had energy. I had energy for him. I don’t know how he felt about me,' she told the September 2017 issue of the fashion publication.

'When I saw the movie, I was reminded all over again how brilliant he is. For the past year, I’ve been dealing with him as just a human.

'I’ve been in relationships before where I am just confused. And I’m never confused with him.'  

Darren raved about the Oscar winning actress while speaking with ET several months ago: 'She's, like, a once-in-a-generation talent, and just a whirlwind and a hurricane and an earthquake and a thunderstorm of talent.'
