Meanwhile, despite gushing about the director's artistic abilities, Jennifer kept mum on the status of their relationship.

She declined to comment on her dating life past ex Nicholas, whom she dated while filming X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past before splitting in August 2014, revealing that privacy is one of her biggest struggles.

'You might think you know me, but when you approach me you’re a total stranger to me and I’m scared,' Jennifer advised her fans.

Case of the ex: Jennifer declined to talk to the publication about exes following X-Men co-star Nicholas Hoult (pictured in 2012), explaining that privacy was a constant struggle 

She continued: 'I get very protective of my space. It took me a long time to be able to do that. But if I’m eating dinner and somebody comes up and a flash goes off from someone’s iPhone camera, I am really rude to that person. Then other people at the restaurant will see and be like, 'Oh, damn, I don’t want to do that.''

The Oscar winner added that 'privacy is a full-time job and I work very hard at it.'

Jennifer next appears in Morten Tyldum's drama Passengers, alongside Chris Pratt, who she called 'a ray of sunshine.'

The two star as a journalist and an engineer traveling aboard a spacecraft to a distant colony planet, who are awakened 90 years early due to a malfunction.

Passengers, which also stars Michael Sheen and Laurence Fishburne, hits theaters on December 21.
