Very few of us ever get the chance to meet our celebrity crush, let alone confess our crush on them to their face. So leave it to Jennifer Lawrence to go ahead and cross that off the bucket list. While on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Jennifer decided it was the right time to tell her crush, who just happened to be the host of the show, about her love for him.
While they share a nice glass of wine, Jennifer tells her story. ”You probably know this by now because I’ve told everybody at NBC, but years ago, I did SNL. You were working there. I don’t know what you did, ” she says to Seth. Telling your crush you weren’t totally aware of his job probably not the best move, but we’ll give Jennifer a break.
She continues with “I had a really big crush on you, and so I had this whole plan. All week I was like, ‘He’s going to ask me out. He’s totally going to ask me out’. Then later in the week I was like, ‘I’m going to ask him out.’ I had created the romance in my head because I’m delusional.” And so I was like, ‘OK, you know what? I’m doing it. I’m doing it!’”
After telling the wardrobe lady at SNL her plan to give Seth her number, she ran into a bit of trouble. The wardrobe lady told her, “Honey, he’s engaged.” So Jennifer had to keep her love for him a secret until now.
Jennifer, no shame filter fully in tact, laughs the story off and tells Seth, “It was so long ago, that now I feel like I can tell you.” Seth agress saying it worked out since he “married that lady” and now they are expecting their first child.
When asked if she has any other celebrity crushes, she admits that she gave Larry David her number. She says that she texted Amy Schumer (famous BFF namedop alert!) while watching Curb Your Enthusiasm that she had “so many sexual and boyfriend/marriage feelings for Larry David. I feel like I’m going to be sick.” Well, we have to hand it to her for going the unconventional crush route, especially when you spend a lot of time staring at Bradley Cooper’s beautiful face.
Jennifer, since you and Seth didn’t work out may I recommend crushing on current Weekend Update anchor/person with fantastic hair Colin Jost? That is if I don’t get to him first.
