Los Angeles: “Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence admitted an old crush to Seth Meyers when she appeared on NBC’s “Late Night”.
Lawrence told Meyers, to his face, that she used to have a crush on him years ago and was once on the verge of asking him out, because she did not know that he was engaged.
“You probably know this by now because I’ve told everybody
at NBC. Years ago, I did ‘SNL’. You were working there. I don’t know what you did. 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’,” she said.
“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!'”
Lawrence told 41-year-old Meyers, who is expecting his first child with his wife Alexi Ashe, “Thank God I talked to the wardrobe lady and I was like, ‘I think I’m going to ask Seth Meyers out. I’m going to give him my number.’ She was like, ‘Honey, he’s engaged.’ I was like, ‘Cool! Good talk!’ Ah!’ It was so long ago that now I feel like I could tell you.
