Jennifer Lawrence Reveals Past Seth Meyers Crush
Actress Jennifer Lawrence has revealed she once had a secret crush on late night host Seth Meyers, but her date plans were torpedoed when she found out he had a fiancée.
The Hunger Games and Joy star hosted U.S. sketch show Saturday Night Live a few years ago when Meyers was still a writer on the series and wanted to ask him out on a date, but ultimately decided against the bold move when a wardrobe stylist informed her he was engaged.
Appearing on her one-time crush’s show on Tuesday, the Oscar winner said, “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!’ So I’m getting a costume fitting and I had this whole plan, I was going to ask you out. And 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.’ And she was like, ‘Honey, he’s engaged.'”
Meyers wed Alexi Ashe in September, 2013.
