Jennifer Lawrence made us love her seen more when she revealed her crush on Larry David. Now the Curb Your Enthusiasm star has responded to J.Law’s comments, and his remarks were unsurprisingly hilarious.
J.Law was not shy about her affection for Larry David. During a sit-down with Vanity Fair, the Hunger Games star asked her interviewer, “Do you like Curb Your Enthusiasm? Do you like Larry David? I’m in love with him, and I have been for a really long time. I worship Woody Allen, but I don’t feel it below the belt the way I do for Larry David.”
So naturally, reporters could not wait to ask Larry David for his thoughts on Jennifer Lawrence’s crush. When told about J.Law’s feelings for him, David responded, “Smart kid. It’s a shame that I’m about 40 years older than she is.”
Indeed, Larry Davis is 67 years old, while Jennifer Lawrence is just 24. So David was particularly surprised to hear the second part of J.Law’s quote, especially the “below the belt” comment.
“Maybe she’s referring to her knees,” Larry David said of Jennifer Lawrence. “I don’t think I could do it. On one hand it’s very flattering and on another hand, it’s kind of a shame—in terms of timing. I’d have fun watching the reality show of it, though.”
Of course, Jennifer Lawrence is reportedly dating Gwyneth Paltrow’s ex, Chris Martin, so J.Law is likely not too upset that Larry David rejected her advances. And Lawrence, along with other David fans, have another reason to smile. The comedian reiterated in this interview that a ninth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm could still happen.
“I’m not ruling it out. “ David said of bringing Curb back. “I would consider it. I’m not tired of it. Other things have come up.”
