Jennifer Lawrence Wanted Seth Meyers to Ask Her Out!

Jennifer Lawrence Wanted Seth Meyers to Ask Her Out!

Jennifer Lawrence shares a laugh with Seth Meyers while appearing on Late Night on Tuesday (December 15) in New York City.

The 25-year-old Joy actress told a story about how she once hosted Saturday Night Live and wanted Seth to ask her out on a date the entire week.

“Years ago, I did SNL. You were working there, I don’t know what you did,” Jen 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, ‘Okay. You know what? I’m doing it. I’m doing it!’” Jen added. “And 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.”

    She is as authentic and instinctively hilarious as it gets. She is at her best when the interview is unscripted.

    She’s funny but this exchange is just awkward .. Seth isn’t comfortable to watch as an interviewer.

    I thought it was pretty hilarious when Seth really quickly replied back that it worked out “because he married that girl.” (The one he was engaged to when Jennifer wanted to ask him out.) It was almost kind of awkward the way Jennifer looked when he said that! Almost like maybe she expecting him to say “Oh my God, I wish I’d known, I had a crush on you, too!!” I don’t get the impression that he felt he missed out on anything one bit, lol.

    Probably because this idiot was telling him she had a crush on him on live TV and he’s married!! He probably wanted to get on another topic that was less awkward!

    Finding the time to carve and elephant from soap, have the trunk up as it is good fortune, wax is also a good medium to practice with.

    Nah, she’s not an idiot – she started a funny story and he had NO idea where to go with it. Awkward fast-talking host, not topic. See: Jimmy Fallon and Nicole Kidman.
