"I had a really big crush on you," Jennifer Lawrence admitted to Seth Meyers on Late Night

Here’s one thing Jennifer Lawrence was hoping would catch fire: a romance with Seth Meyers.

The Hunger Games star, 25, revealed she used to have a crush on Meyers while appearing on Late Night Tuesday. Lawrence said that “years ago” she planned to ask him out while hosting Saturday Night Live.

“I had a really big crush on you,” the Oscar winner admitted to Meyers. “I had this plan, all week I was like, ‘He’s going to ask me out. He’s totally going to ask me out.’ ”

But after a few days passed, Lawrence decided she was going to make the first move and ask Meyers out herself.

“I had created the romance in my head because I’m delusional,” Lawrence explained about the mentality behind her plan to win a date with Meyers. “And so I was like, ‘Okay. You know what? I’m doing it. I’m doing it!’ ”

But her plan hit a major speed bump when she realized Meyers, 41, was a taken man.

“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,’ ” she recalled. “And she was like, ‘Honey, he’s engaged.’ ”

And it turns out, Meyers isn’t Lawrence’s only celebrity crush.

“I gave Larry David my number and he never called me,” she revealed. “He never called me but he also might have been married. I don’t know. Apparently I don’t ask about these things!”

Lawrence swears that she’s “so not that girl” to hit on a married man, but she admits that her marriage radar is a bit off.

“I always forget about step one: find out if he already has a woman. I get so carried away and already going into the delusion of ‘Oh we’re in love,’ ” she laughed.

“Oh my god, I’m like a predator,” she joked. “I’ll accidentally hit on your husband, but I’m sorry I didn’t know.”
