It looks like Jennifer Lawrence’s gushing about Timothee Chalamet has not gone unnoticed by the 22-year-old actor. While at the Independent Spirit Awards he reacted to the actress’ crush on him.
When asked what he thinks about J. Law’s comments that he is ‘so, so talented and hot,’ Timothee blushed saying ‘I don’t know if she said it exactly like that.’
But that is exactly how she said it! Last month, as she was promoting Red Sparrow, she also said that she is ‘buttering him up like a pig for slaughter, and then I am going to swing right in there as soon as he is, like, 30.’ LOL
She added: ‘I did not realize he was so young. Tell him to wait!’
Chalamet did not shy away from praising her as well, although he used less creepy words!
‘As I have said before, she is a total legend. She is an icon amongst young people where it is tough to have a career at a young age, and she has done that and then some. So, what an honor. I have gotten to meet her a couple times. She is awesome. She is really… this whole ride has been f**king crazy.’
But of course, the talented young actor has done great for himself as well, and Lawrence is not the only one to see it.
Chalamet got the award in the Best Male Lead category at Saturday’s Independent Spirit Awards for Call Me By Your Name and is also nominated for Best Actor at the Oscars!
‘I am full of gratitude. This has been an incredible time. I am excited to get to keep going. I guess that is the most thrilling part of this, it is like a co-sign from the community to hopefully keep making work now,’ he said about his hard work and talent being recognized.
