The public has heard it all, from Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves confessing their love for each other to Nicole Kidman expressing her admiration for Jimmy Fallon. One of the celebrated actors, Jennifer Lawrence, also admitted she had feelings for Seth Meyers, the host of the NBC late-night talk show Late Night with Seth Meyers, at one point.

Jennifer Lawrence Admitted To Seth Meyers That She Almost Asked Him Out

There is nothing new about shocking revelations on talk shows. Many times, in some of the most important episodes, a number of previously untold stories are made public.

The fans were shocked when Jennifer Lawrence admitted that she once harbored a secret crush on the talk show host during one of the earlier episodes of Late Night with Seth Meyers. The 33-year-old actress joked about how her wardrobe assistant saved her from asking the NBC host out on a date. It appears that the actress was unaware that Meyers was engaged at the time.

“I had a really big crush on you. I had created the romance in my head, because I’m delusional. I had this whole plan. I was going to ask you out.”

But Lawrence’s wardrobe assistant came to her rescue. According to the Dark Phoenix actress, the wardrobe assistant told her about Meyers’ engagement to prevent worsening of her embarrassment:

“And so I m getting a costume fit, and I had this whole plan I was gonna ask you out. Thank God, I talked to a wardrobe lady about it and I was like I think I’m gonna ask him out, I’m gonna give him my number and she was like Honey he’s engaged. I was like cool, good talk.”

The Hunger Games star’s expression conveyed that the experience was not pleasant in any way. She promised herself she would never go after a man owned by another woman. The mother of one continued: 

“Oh my god, I’m like a predator.” 

Although Lawrence has had similar stories in the past, she is currently enjoying a happy marriage to her art gallery director husband, Cooke Maroney. On the work front, she was last seen in the s*x comedy film No Hard Feelings, directed by Gene Stupnitsky.
