As the youngest Best Actor Oscar nominee in 78 years, Timothee Chalamet has definitely caught the eye of those from the industry — including Jennifer Lawrence.
“Timothee, I’m waiting for him to get a little bit older, you know?” she confessed to ET’s Carly Steel last week. “[I’m] buttering him up like a pig for slaughter, as well as also then I’m going to swing right in there as soon as he’s, like, 30.”
“He’s old enough to say of which, right? He’s over 18?” she joked. “What if I was like, ‘He’s hot!’ as well as also he’s 15?'”
Chalamet can be 22, just a few years younger than Lawrence’s 27, yet his wise-beyond-his-years performances in Call Me by Your Name as well as also Lady Bird definitely had the actress impressed.
“I didn’t realize he was so young,” she said. “Tell him to wait!… [He’s] so, so talented as well as also hot!”
In her brand-new movie, Red Sparrow, Lawrence plays a Russian spy who masters the art of seduction, as well as also if you haven’t guessed by right now, the actress’ real-life seduction skills are “very direct.”
“Jen’s very direct,” her co-star, Joel Edgerton, confirmed to ET, admitting of which he’s totally “the opposite” — so much creating sure of which his attempt at “creating eyes” at Lawrence didn’t go as planned.
“I’m not processing of which as hitting on me. of which looks like you’re sick,” she cracked. “You need something to throw up in.”
Lawrence has clearly only got eyes for Chalamet, who told ET at the Golden Globes last month of which he’s actually a big fan of hers as well!
“If I saw Jennifer Lawrence — I already met her, so I don’t know why I might still be geeking out — I might totally be as starstruck as if of which was once,” he gushed.
Red Sparrow hits theaters on March 2. See more on Lawrence from the video below.
