Imagine what could have been!
When Jennifer Lawrence appeared on NBC's Late Night Tuesday, she confessed to host Seth Meyers that she used to fantasize about him back in the day. "You probably know this by now because I've told everybody at NBC. Years ago, I did SNL. You were working there. I don't know what you did. I had a really big crush on you, and so I had this whole plan. All week I was like, 'He's going to ask me out. He's totally going to ask me out,'" the Golden Globe nominee said. "Then later in the week I was like, 'I'm going to ask him out.' I had created the romance in my head because I'm delusional." And so I was like, 'OK, you know what? I'm doing it. I'm doing it!'"
During a costume fitting, she revealed her plans. "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 was like, 'Honey, he's engaged.' I was like, 'Cool! Good talk!' Ah!'" Lawrence told Meyers, who is expecting his first child with Alexi Ashe. "It was so long ago that now I feel like I could tell you."
"It's safe because it worked out," Meyers said. "I married that lady."
He then gave cheers to "how everything worked out."
"Cheers to my humiliation, I guess," Lawrence joked.
"We should have had you do a toast at our wedding," Meyers said.
"'I'm happier without you,'" Lawrence said playfully.
"My wife would contend you probably are," Meyers joked.
