We can yet again relate to Jennifer Lawrence! The Hunger Games star admitted to crushing hard on 22-year-old Timothée Chalamet, who has quickly become a Hollywood fan favourite after his role as Elio Perlman in Call Me By Your Name.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, JLaw admitted she has a major crush on the young actor, who also features in another Oscar nominated film, Lady Bird, but wasn't sure if he is old enough to be addressed as "hot". 

“What if I was like, 'He's hot!' and he's 15?” she joked.

There's a five year age difference between the 27-year-old actress and Chalamet so she bluntly confesses that she is waiting for him to turn 30.

"Timothée, I'm waiting for him to get a little bit older, you know? I didn’t realize he was so young,” she said in the interview that also discussed her upcoming movie, Red Sparrow, where she plays a Russian spy who masters the art of seduction.

“Tell him to wait!” she directly said. Unlike her movie persona, Lawrence's real-life seduction skills are "very direct", her co-star, Joel Edgerton, confirmed.

She joked and gushed about Chalamet a bit more; “[I’m] buttering him up like a pig for slaughter,” she joked, emphasizing that she thinks he’s “so, so talented and hot."

I'm going to swing right in there as soon as he's, like, 30. He’s old enough to say that, right? He's over 18?” she joked further.

As for the other part of the story, Chalamet has revealed that his favorite reaction to his character in Call Me by Your Name was actually from Jennifer herself. "Getting to meet Jennifer Lawrence and hearing her say she was moved by the film is on one side of the crazy-gratifying experience of this movie," Timothée said, Hollywood Reporter reported.
