Jennifer Lawrence wasn’t just memorizing lines when she hosted Saturday Night Live about 3 years ago: she was also working up the nerve to ask out Seth Meyers, who was a head writer at the time. Lawrence stopped by Late Night Tuesday to tell the titular host about the seduction plan she never ended up executing all those years ago.

“I had a really big crush on you,” Lawrence admitted to Meyers. When he didn’t ask her out during her 2013 hosting stint, Lawrence decided she would make the move, only to be told by a wardrobe person that he was already engaged.

But Lawrence’s celebrity crushes don’t stop with Meyers — she went on to describe the “sexual and boyfriend/marriage feelings” she has for Larry David, and she’s even made a move on the Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm creator: “I gave Larry David my number and he never called me,” Lawrence said.
