That time Jennifer Lawrence almost asked out this former SNL star
Today in “Jennifer Lawrence is Just Like Us” news: she totally had a huge crush on Seth Meyers while hosting SNL. Last night, J. Law stopped by Late Night to talk about The Hunger Games, but while there she decided to make a bit of a confession over a glass of wine, you know, as you do.
But let’s backtrack: Back in 2013, J-Law hosted SNL around the time when the adorable Seth was still head writer for the show, and over the course of a week Jennifer’s crush on the comic blossomed. “I had this whole plan, like all week I was like, ‘He’s going to ask me out, he’s totally going to ask me out,'” she admitted to Seth last night. “And 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.”
But sadly, her romance came to a crashing halt when she decided to ask someone about him before asking him out . . . only to learn he was engaged to his now wife—human rights lawyer, Alexi Ashe.
Hey, we’ve all had an unrequited love or two, and honestly, who doesn’t have a bit of a crush on Seth Meyers? Or on Jennifer Lawrence? Um, we love her even more for sharing that story, not only publicly, but directly to her crush. And somehow, because it’s J-Law, it’s not at all awkward. Well, maybe it’s a little awkward.
